Thank you for organising the competition. I wish Alaphilippe could have made the podium but he was great.

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.
Com'on! Tell us where you parked your DeLorean!

:surprised: :surprised:

*Walks on Podium, takes the mic*

"I'll say to the people who don't believe in cycling, the cynics ... can't live a dream, or believe in miracles, as there are no secrets to my success. My predictions were clean, and made through lots of hard work of sitting on the couch, watching cycling and reading articles."

Pretty happy with my predictions as got the winner right and 6 of my predicted top 7 finished in the top ten with Buchmann my bravest call. Overestimated Landa somewhat.

any appreciation from bookies? (bets won... e.g. Alaf's GC winning or TOP3/5 odds must have dropped massively during the race)
