Kinda miffed that this thread isn't in the PRR though. It was one of the funniest things around last year. Went for quite a few pages too. I think the meta-tour aspect ends up having more entertainment value than the forum game itself.

I had a game, even before the first CQ game, that I had invested dozens of hours in essentially wiped out by the initiation of the games sub-forum: given that its birth cost me so much, I think I should at least acknowledge its existence. What I cannot understand or agree with is the continued presence of the Race Design thread in the PRR section: if that is not about Fantasy, what is?

I would recommend the View new posts access to the forum, so that you see all recently changed threads, regardless of where they are filed.

Rolland was 11th today; I think he is still good.

Forgot the TDF website defaults to the overall where he's 9th. My bad. :redface:

So eliminated by order of elimination:

STAGE 1
Mark Cavendish
Marcel Kittel
Peter Sagan
André Greipel
Edward Theuns
Christophe Laporte
Bryan Coquard
Alexander Kristoff
Daniel McLay
Gregory Henderson

STAGE 2
Julian Alaphilippe
Alejandro Valverde
Daniel Martin
Michael Matthews
Wilco Kelderman
Tony Gallopin
Greg van Avermaet
Bauke Mollema
Christopher Froome

STAGE 3
Sondre Holst Enger
Dylan Groenwegen

STAGE 4
Samuel Dumoulin
Simon Gerrans

STAGE 5
Thomas de Gendt
Rafal Majka
Joaquin Rodriguez
Bartosz Huzarski
Adam Yates
Tejay van Garderen

So we've surprisingly lost nobody who was picked so far. I'm actually having a philosophical discussion...If ninja are so easy to identify...Are they ninja at all?

It's pretty easy to pick riders who will not make top 10: most of us are finding that it is harder to get one who retains a high GC position.

To the first: please do: I have most of an hours' work after each stage with the CQ game anyway.

To the second: I'd suggest include with an asterisk: I suspect he will do well enough to disqualify himself soon.

Feeling distintively pack fodder ATM :p NickC has a very decent shout with Meintjes there. Looks like he's hanging on for a final top 10. Wonder if he can keep his ninja performance...

It's gotta be Henao. Pulling for Froome all the way and dropping out before the end. Quintana will surely get a win eventually. Right? Right.

Henao will have multiple top 10s I suspect, when it gets a bit harder he will finish high despite the work. Van den Broeck in best position currently imo.

Liking Meintjes' and Henao's chances. Nairo will obviously get a top 10 unless it's all wins from the break from here one. Rolland will probably go on a break for a stage win as well if he's alright. Reichenbach, Buchmann and VDB still positively invisible though.

Master Haimaru is 30th at 22'22 behind Quintana so far. Slowly but surely... ;)

Updated for Stage 14. Today I noticed that one of our foremost disciples of the ninja code had fallen in true ninja fashion by withdrawing two stages ago. Mr. Jurgen van Den Broeck. Also, Mr. Serge Pauwels took himself out of contention with his placing on Le Mont Chalet Reynard Ventoux Motorcycle GP Classic.

Surely Nairo Quintana will have a top 10 placing in the last week right? He can't win the ninja competition. What the hell is up with that.

Not top ten today either, and highly unlikely to tomorrow. He might do it yet.
