    Is it the same teams every year?

    It's a while since Jumbo have been this deep into the contest. But otherwise, I think so.

    Except Cofidis have won and NTT have folded.
  • I voted Astana but was worried that Lutsenko might break their duck in today’s Spanish Strade Bianche race.
    He’s just ridden Tim Wellens off his wheel and is going for a 43km solo.

  • Just voted Astana before catching up on recent results.

    Error.

    Quite the day for teams sponsored by countries currently illegally occupying territory belonging to others.

    How can Jumbo still be out? It's mind-boggling

    Binning off your world class sprinter doesn't help.

    Their top two riders haven't done a race yet.

    Their team for the Ardeche races at the weekend is stacked. Like turning up to a conkers tournament with a wrecking ball.

    This year's finalists are AG2R and DSM.

    Are DSM still going or did all their riders leave?

    Jumbo come good in the classics, as I hoped (for this competition). AG2R on the podium on the road - the top step still awaits them here, but DSM might well be edging ahead. :#

    Problem with DSM is they are more committed to winning the World A Cappella Championship.

    AG2R get a win. It’s all over. DSM are this year’s winners.

    Dammit! Not that I had money on it. I bet they're hoping to come good in the GTs and longer stage races.
