2019 Tour de France - STAGE - Predictions Challenge

Ok, here's my completely random list and it's really completely random as I used random number generator:
3. Hugo Houle
4. Rohan Dennis
5. Giulio Ciccone
6. Amael Moinard
7. Dylan Groenewegen
8. Jasper Philipsen
9. Wout van Aert
10. Sonny Colbrelli
11. Luke Durbridge
12. Romain Bardet
13. Patrick Konrad
14. Rui Costa
15. Jan Tratnik
16. George Bennett
17. Tony Gallopin
18. Niki Terpstra
19. Pello Bilbao
20. Giacomo Nizzolo
21. Anthony Turgis
 
With Groenewegen for stage 7 this random prediction may still end up scoring more points than some of the real players here. :p
Bardet for stage 12 not very unlikely either.
Gallopin might have a chance for stage 17.

So you completely randomly hit all of Sagan, Valverde, Groenewegen, Aru, Pinot and four Danes? :)
Maybe my subconsciousness just really want multiple Danish stage wins this year.
Unfortunately my subconsciousness is also really stupid, because none of the Danes picked are going to win the stages they got picked for.

My random prediction got it right! :lol:

I've calculated the probability of getting at least one stage winner right with random predictions at around 11%, so it's not that unusual after all.

I hate to admit but this has been a pretty difficult Tour to predict. Even the big sprinters have all divided the wins.
Yeah, I finally managed to get to a grand total of 2 points today (Groenewegen on stage 7 is my only other correct guess).

I did have Sagan for three stages until now, but not stage 5 where I instead had Alaphilippe...

I gave mountain stages to Pinot, Quintana and Nibali - all on the wrong day. I need a miracle from Kristoff tomorrow. :eek:
Had a word with Nibali and told him I was really sucking at this and he said you can rely on me today ;)
 
Regarding picking wrong stages for riders something like that would be better points distribution for future editions.

Winning stage 10p
2nd place on stage 5p
3rd place on stage 3p
Rider winning other stage 1p

The last one can be given only once per prediction. So in a race like this year's Tour, predicting Simon Yates winning Tourmalet stage would give 1p. Predicting him to win in Tourmalet and Val Thorens would give 2p.
