edited July 2017 in Pro race
So it's the one everybody has been waiting for and the one that will probably sink my PTP chances for the year...

The route:

Bookie's odds for the overall (paddypower):
Porte 6/4
Froome 13/8
Quintana 7/1
Contador 16/1
Aru 16/1
Fuglsang 20/1
Valverde 22/1
Bardet 25/1
Majka 50/1
Thomas 66/1

Rules are the same as ever:


On the day for each stage for the stage and July 1st for the overall please.

Housekeeping - I'm away and in a stupid time zone until Sunday 9th so unless someone wants to help me out there will be no scoring or jerseys awarded until the first rest day (10th).

    I blame Wikipedia - I've swapped it for the one from although it looks exactly the same except with country names added for the benefit of presumably Americans who don't know where any European countries are.

    I thought this morning that you could do pretty well choosing just British riders for this TDF PTP.

    Therefore, please can I have the following...

    GC - Froome
    1 - Cummings
    2 - Cavendish
