It would be fascinating to see this on TV especially as a world tour one day race maybe this will evolve in status in the future. Looking at the field this year it looks a straight shootout between Dombrowski coming off a strong Giro and Bardet looking to build towards the Tour.
 
Hoping there's a replay somewhere tonight.

You do sort of wonder why there aren't more MTF one-day races but I guess the GTs suck up all the oxygen for the climbers. The Galibier would be perfect for this if you started down in the Maurienne but then again, what makes the GT MTF's so compelling is how they fit in the larger context of the race. Whereas as a one-off, it's just a drag race, and a slow motion one at that.
 
Chapeau Herrada - King of Luxembourg becomes King of Ventoux - seemed to have no problems following Bardet who looked like a man cycling through syrup at times. (the voodoo has caught up with Bardet! :))

And the top ten is basically:
The three Jumbo guys.
Three from Katusha (Dowsett, Würtz Schmidt, and Biermans).
Three from Sunweb (Walscheid, Bol, and Kragh Andersen).
And with De Buyst thrown into the mix to make it ten.
Those four teams occupy all spots in top 15 and 20 spots among the first 24. Only 8 of the WorldTour riders don't make the top 24. Quite remarkable.
