PN Stage Two Podium Competion

We're going to give this another go. It's time to think outside the box, folks!

Remember, we have a Cervelo TestTeam musette bag and cap signed by none other than Heinrich Haussler.

The contest opens at 2 p.m (CET) and closes with 20km to go. (Someone want to volunteer to help with the closure? I'm doing the live report today and don't always have the chance to pop over to the forum at the right moment.)

So: Pick the podium. In order. If we get desperate, we may take the top three in not the right order.

Rules: One pick per user.

No edits allowed. If you change your mind, delete your first posting and post again.

The first one with the right picks wins.

List the names in the order you think they will place.

Please put only your tips in this thread. Continue the race discussion in the appropriate thread.

Thanks, good luck, and somebody get it right this time!



As yesterday, Greipel, Chicchi, Henderson.

And as there's such a big tailwind, there'll be a MASSIVE crash in the last k.
