Harsh. Btw, didn't you state that the points rules would be the same as last year? I think we got podium points back then because otherwise I don't think we would have ever gotten close to 20. But I'm not quite sure.
I took a look at the numbers again, and there are 2 points for the exact place of the GT podium spots. So as I understand it you can for instance gain 4 points for the third place in the Giro, if you have it right in the long and short term. That can bring some good points quite fast. It actually makes the game quite GT-heavy... well, let's just do it that way... and if we aren't content with this way we can start next year's game earlier and discuss the points distribution.

I've also thought about the tie-breakers, and I suggest these:
  • most singular correct predictions
  • most GT winners correct
  • most different riders correct
What do you all think?

Like the choices, although I think most monument correct picks might be a consideration.
