They're out but it's a bit of a soft out.

That said, they had no chance of winning this anyway. I'm surprised it took this long.

Doesn't look like Sunweb will be out of this over the weekend.

EF-Drapac, they don’t have any really prolific winners. At least Sunweb has Matthews and Dumoulin.

Astana looks like their only real competition.

Their only hope is Uran, who can win.

He has 11 wins since 2007, why did you think he's at EF. That is official Vaughters policy, he only picks up cheap losers, and well, they are losers because they don't win.

McLay can get a win in a small race with a weak sprinting field. Same with Modolo. If there's a hipster's penny farthing race on the calendar then I'd back Phinney to get a win

Modolo has won races every year since 2011. He’ll win something for them. It might be stages of the Tour of Turkey or something, but it’ll count.

Tour of Turkey is in October; let's hope EF has managed to get at least a few wins before then. Otherwise they'd be "winning" this in epic ways!

EF keeps getting the most votes in the poll year after year but they never actually win this competition.

So that's me for Katusha, Alexandre B and A.N. Other for Sunweb, and an anonymous selector of UAE left in the battle.

Yeah, but only because LL Sanchez is Valverde's friend.

I voted for EF but I'm happy for Uran.

Who would have thought Katusha with Kittel would be at least on the podium (well, at least 3 of us).
