I picked Arnaud Demare to win the next stage

Thanks VFR, yes, champ'ers on the final ride into Paris, I wouldn't expect too many points out of my team in the final.

Good competition, thanks Kev & Rik, and all the other team DS'ers.

Well done Claude! Thanks Rik, and begrudgingly thanks Kev until you knocked me off the last podium spot :P But seriously, it was fun edition, maybe closer than others in the midfield if memory is correct?
Finally, I am amazed Chris Froome spent 21 days riding around France without getting taken out by a hostile spectator (police officers aside), maybe helped by not wearing yellow.

Another Tour nearly over. Thanks, yet again, for organising this welcome distraction. Chapeau to those on the podium!

Wolffman1 manages to win the final sprint but it is Claude who rides triumphantly over the finish line in 1st place overall
Richie_D and Kev also finish in the peleton so there is no change in the general classifications and they remain in 2nd and 3rd respectively
Congratulations to Claude for putting together a fantasy team that contained the yellow, green and polkadot jersey winners

Thanks everyone for playing, if you can here me at the front. Congratulations to Claude

And to Richie_D and Kev for at least trying to make it a race of it.

This VFR tour was dominated by two big hitters.

Wolfman dominated the early stages then exploded spectacularly, but still finished comfortably in the top half.

And I don't know what to say about Claudes performance, he simply dominated, crushing all opposition. Scoring a winning total on par with previous years despite the reduced eight man teams.

Final mention to Kev for running this whole show, whilst we sleep. So go buy some stuff from one of our affiliates so we can buy him a crate of whatever curly mustached designer beer he likes.

I think we need to change Claude’s name to the cannibal.
Good fun again, thanks all

Claude deserves the mic drop that Geraint did on the champes. His was a far more dominant display

Postby gydey on Mon 30th Jul 7:00pm

To be fair it was a crazy tour...what organiser eliminates 80% of the top sprinters in the first 12 days? Really fucked the balance of the tour tbh.

Then the failures...Movistar 3 prong attack totally failed as did Mitchelton Scotts attack...how could they go so close at the Giro and go so wrong in the TDF... the trainers and strategists completely fucked it up. Trek and Astana completely over rated their leaders who failed dismally and poor old Dan Martin must have shagged the devils daughter cos the poor bastard was struck down by every piece of bad luck on offer, but what a tough bastard he is and he did beat G in the Tour of Wales as Juniors.....and that is almost as important as the Pegasus club champs :-) Kittel, Greipel and Cavendish are still getting over their egos...bring on the new sprinters like Gaviria and Groenewegan...and of course St Peter. Krristoff beat the rest of a tired bunch in Paris.

How good was Lotto Jumbo.... Roglic and the human coat hanger were superb as was big Tom.... never gave up and raced till the end...huge respect. Finally Sky were just amazing...the whole team. But shit G you were the man (I coached a magic U19 TP that beat the poms for gold in the 2005 junior worlds TP. They crashed at 2.5 km but we had gone past them as they started too quick and G was the first guy to come up and say congrat....he is a genuine bloody nice guy, Froome was a great foil and support, and Kwiatkowski was amazing...but holy fuckballs Egan Bernal is a legend in the making and as opposed to Quinatana... he has the full package as he can TT. Im picking he will win 5+ Tours

Thanks again Kev & Rik, great comp. And same for the other who put teams together.

To be fair I was a bit worried about my picks when I was down in 11th after the first stage, but things started looking better when the routes went uphill.

I got the ochre jersey from the TdU a few years back, it'd be good if we could get the opportunity to go for red soon!

But Gydey, Pegasus Club Champs :o

Cheers
Claude
