Yeah, I didn't check the standings before my post and kinda assumed 2016 would rank lower and wanted to hurt a Tour that I feel is overrated. 2016 felt like it just didn't have a gc battle, 2017 felt like it could have had one but the riders able to bring it on refused to do so. Yet some cycling media praised the race because for the first time in ages we didn't have some favorite going into the 3rd week with an enormous advantage so that there was the illusion of a close battle.Me too. The Contador/Landa ambush stage alone was pretty great.
