Porte will crash out again, because that... seems to be a habit of his.
Well… that did not go too well…
Fuglsang: out!
Bardet: out of GC! (and the prediction was specifically that Bardet and Pinot would be fighting for the last podium spot...)
Yates: out of GC!
Quintana: out of GC.
Martin: out of GC.

Porte: haven't crashed out.

Which Martin are we talking about?

I’m the only one so far to realise Alaphilippe is going to grab yellow early on and focus on defending it rather than go for dots. He will wear yellow until finding it all too much on the last Friday and Saturday. Feel free to thank me in advance.
Do you have the lottery numbers to hand?
 
So, how did I do...?

1. Bernal
2. Fuglsang
3. Bardet/Pinot
4. Pinot/Bardet
5. Yates
6. Thomas
7. Quintana
8. Martin
9. Uran
10. Barguil
Two placings right (thanks to Porte for getting dropped…)
Three who was in top-10, but wrong placing.
Three out of top-10.
Two who didn't even make it to Paris.

Yeah… this is why I don't make predictions! I suck!

Can you PM me the next lotto winning numbers? And you had him 5th. Amazing...
 
1. Pinot (dnf)
2. Bernal (1)
3. Bardet (15)
4. A. Yates (29)
5. Quintana (8)
6. Krushweak (3)
7. Fuglsang (dnf)
8. Landa (6)
9. D. Martin (18)
10. Barguil (10)

I got 5 in the top 10 and one place right. I was debating substituting Uran and Valverde in for Fuglsang and Martin when I made this but figured those would perform better for different reasons. I thought Thomas would either crash or be in bad shape.

I'll take it, better than my usual predictions.
 
Reminder about the rules: in the top-10 1 point. right placing +2 points. podium prediction/delivered +3 points.

Here's our top-3:

-----------Juan Pelota-------------Singer01---------------Laplaz
--1-------Bernal--6 pts----------Thomas--4 pts--------Bernal--6 pts
--2-------Thomas--6 pts--------Bernal--4 pts----------Thomas--6 pts
--3-------Quintana--1 pt---------Kruijswijk--6 pts-----Fulgsang
--4-------Landa--1 pt-------------A. Yates-----------------Pinot
--5-------Fuglsang----------------Porte---------------------A. Yates
--6-------A. Yates-----------------Pinot---------------------Uran--1 pt
--7-------Bardet-------------------Mas-----------------------Landa--1 pt
--8-------Pinot---------------------Quintana--3 pts--------Kruijswijk--1 pt
--9-------Valverde--3 pts--------Fuglsang----------------Buchmann--1 pt
--10------Uran--1 pt--------------Uran--1 pt---------------Quintana--1 pt

-----------18 points----------------18 points-----------------17 points

The first tie-breaker is to predict the TdF winner, so Juan Pelota is our official winner, Singer01 takes silver, Laplaz finishes in 3rd place.

T-4 with 16 pts: Cian, Summoned, and Brough (who killed it with the Alaf' prediction and 5th place finish).
T-7 with 15 points: Valv.Piti, Spalco, Simurgh, MrTea1976, and Gigs_98.
T-12 with 14 points: hayneplane, JosephK, DJ Sprtsch, Le Chuck, and Leakyboat.
T-17 with 13 points: jaylew, Frankschleck, Eyeballs Out, and cinemaniak.
T-21 with 12 points: triley, Avoriaz, and RedheadDane.
T-24 with 11 points: Broccolidwarf, the chicken from T, and Amazinmets87.
T-27 with 10 points: wheresmybrakes, wirral, Armchair Cyclist, Sprint n stones, Pohja Konn, Asero831, SHADOW93, old.edu, Cookster15, and Leggitte.
T-37 with 9 points: Tigerion, cineteq, QuickZulu, Semir S, Logic-is-your-friend, klintE, Velover2, Jungle Cycle, hammertrain, and Pantani_lives.

T-51 with 7 points: HelloDolly, topcat, Blanco, and Cance>TheRest.
