    Carapaz is the clear favourite but where is the fun in that? So much can go wrong.

    GC: Joao Almeida
    S1: Matthieu Van Der Poel
    The above may be fact, or fiction, I may be serious, I may be jesting.
    I am not sure. You have no chance.

    Stage 1 Results:
    Shared Ciclamino for the majority of the peloton, but Mad_Malx is in Pink for his "outsider" GC pick of Pello Bilbao (even is his stage 1 pick fell off his bike).

    First rider goes off at 13:00 BST in tomorrow's TT, so picks required before the beeps.
