Obviously this is extremely important for the GC and also if by some miracle teams have less than 5 guys, not sure what will happen then. Very unlikely it will happen although poor greenedge, only 6 riders atm....

Will be updated if a riders crashes out, let me know if i left something out. Let's hope though i won't have to change it in the next days.

Let me know if there are some riders that are doubtful to start the next day.

BMC: 9 riders

Etixx quick step: 8 riders. Out Martin

Tinkoff-Saxo: 9 riders

Sky: 9 riders

Ag2r: 9 riders

TEAM GIANT-ALPECIN: 8 riders. Out Dumoulin

MOVISTAR: 9 riders.

Katusha: 7 riders. Out KOZONTCHUK and Paolini

Cofidis: 8 riders. Out BOUHANNI

Cannondale-Garmin: 8 riders. Out Bauer

Astana: 9 riders

Lotto-soudal: 8 riders.Out Henderson

Trek: 8 riders. Out Cancellara

MTN-QHUBEKA: 9 riders

Lotto Jumbo: 9 riders

IAM: 9 riders

Bora-Argon: 8 riders. Out Schillinger

De gendt not looking good for tomorrow. Prob broke some ribs.

Tossato hurt his knee but he'll prob be fine.
 
If Lampre actually took some risks by being next to their leader I'm sure they'd have less than 9 riders by now. They'll still be worse than Orica on the TTT, though.

Well, it's le Tour after all. People will endure a lot of suffering before they leave this race. That does not mean that they will be of great help when the TTT is on. ;)

If there's only 4 riders left on a team, time will be taken from the fourth rider.
Are you sure? I think I read something different, but it could have been bad source :D

The time cut will apply apparently, winning time plus 30%. I wonder if a four man team would struggle?

CafeRoubaix ‏@CafeRoubaix 49m49 minutes ago

9 riders are out of the TdF after just 5 stages. Last time when this happened was in 1996, when the TdF also started in the Netherlands.

Really? I remember tour 2011 was a complete disaster, but it took a bit longer. Maybe we already got the worst.

nah, some of the most difficult stages are already done (design, weather etc). Limited damage imo. 9 men? Almost nothing, but Orica really is hurt.

Was that stage in the tour 2011 where vdb and vino crashed like that? What i remember it wasn't. But obviously the biggest dangers seem to be done, i hope at least
 
it would be nice as well to know wich rider sare afected by crashes the previous day of the ITT. It is difficult to say who is afected and who no, but I think that people that crashes as Pinot today, is going to be afected in his performance next days.
