    It is that time of year again. Due to holidays, Jeff is going to run the TdF pool this year. Thanks for taking this on Jeff. Rules are the same as last year, posted below. You can submit your picks via this form

    Make sure you get your picks in before the end of the stage on Saturday morning.
    Enjoy the race!

    Here are the Rules

    The Rules:

    ENTRIES:
    You must pick the following:
    -Ten riders
    -A team
    -Your guess of the total number of finishers
    Only one entry per individual please

    ENTRY DEADLINES:
    -You may enter at any time before the final day of the Tour, but once the Tour has started you may not pick a rider who has earned any Pool points

    POINTS:
    -Participants will be awarded points based on the performance of their riders and team in each stage and in the final overall standings (see points scales below).

    FINAL STANDINGS:
    -The winner of the Pool is the participant who scores the most points.
    -In the event of a tie, best GC rider decides, followed by number of stage wins, number of second places etc.
    -In the event that two participants pick identical riders and team, the tie breaker will be the participant whose guesses closest to the total number of finishers.
    -Tour Pool results will be considered “official” one week to the hour after the finish of the final stage, and distribution of prizes and kudos will begin. Any subsequent disqualifications will not affect the Pool result

    POOL POINTS SCALES
    Each Stage:
    -1st: = 15 points
    -2nd = 12
    -3rd = 10
    -4th = 8
    -5th = 6
    -6th = 5
    -7th = 4
    -8th = 3
    -9th = 2
    -10th = 1
    -Overall Classification Leader (Yellow Jersey) = 7
    -Daily Combativity Award = 7
    -Points Leader (Green Jersey) = 5
    -Mountains Leader (Polka Dot Jersey) = 5
    -Best Young Rider (White Jersey) = 5
    -Team Classification Leader = 5
    -Abandon = -15
    -Positive Drug Test for selected rider= -50
    -Positive Drug Test from selected team member = -30
    Final Results:
    GC
    -Winner = 50 points
    -2nd = 40,
    -3rd = 30
    -4th = 22…. descending down to
    -25th = 1
    Points Leader
    -Winner = 15
    -2nd = 10
    -3rd = 5
    Mountain Leader
    -Winner = 15
    -2nd = 10
    -3rd = 5
    Best Young Rider Leader
    -Winner = 15
    -2nd = 10
    -3rd = 5
    Super Combativity Award
    -Winner = 15
    Team Classification
    -Winner = 15
    -2nd = 10
    -3rd = 5

    It will likely take me a couple of days to get my spread sheet in order, but I will post results here once I have things working

    The bad news is that Contador is out. The good news is that he avoided all of that hail at the end! Also, everyone chose him, so we all fall together…

    My apologies to Leslie who submitted picks. I don’t know why Google Forms didn’t work, but I’ve added her to the pool. Welcome!

    Congrats to Travis for picking Tom Dumoulin. Also, Movistar is the new team to beat.

    Froome’s cross-training came in handy today as he RAN up the hill! Lucky break for him as a jury decides that he should not be penalized. He keeps the yellow jersey, much to a disappointed Adam Yates.

    Apparently Yates is good with the decision as he said he didn’t want to win the jersey that way. Class.

    I missed the fact that Cancellara did not start Stage 18, so Leslie takes a hit. Dumoulin withdrew today, so Travis also takes a hit.

    Stage 19:
    Jeff Waite 55
    Chris Heydon 43
    Craig Murray 31
    Dave Newport 31
    Adric Heney 25
    Travis Samuel 22

    Chris Heydon 455

    We have our jersey winners. Chris Froome makes it a hat-trick. Sagan doesn’t surprise anyone. Majka repeats his 2014 KoM victory. Adam Yates has a solid tour. Now we leave it to the sprinters at the Champs-Elysees.

    Stage 20:
    Jeff Waite 26
    Leslie Collins 20

    Hi everyone,

    First, I want to say thank you very much for participating. This pool makes watching the Tour a lot of fun.

    I’ve included the stage 21 and final numbers below. Somehow I managed to pull out a victory. Although if Chris had picked Froome instead of either Degenkolb or Nieve, he would have taken it. I’ve also included the list of ten riders who scored the most points, along with the team. None of us had picked four of the top scorers (Yates, Majka, De Gendt, Pantano).

    Until next year!

    Stage 21:
    Adric Heney 49
    Chris Heydon 47
    Travis Samuel 45
    Jeff Waite 44
    Craig Murray 44
    Dave Newport 44
    Leslie Collins 39

    Final:
    Jeff Waite 208
    Craig Murray 172
    Dave Newport 172
    Travis Samuel 167
    Leslie Collins 148
    Adric Heney 146
    Chris Heydon 143

    Totals:
    Jeff Waite 840
    Travis Samuel 746
    Craig Murray 710
    Dave Newport 710
    Adric Heney 693
    Leslie Collins 686
    Chris Heydon 659

    Top Ten Point Scorers:
    Peter Sagan 245
    Chris Froome 207
    Adam Yates 120
    Rafal Majka 104
    Thomas De Gendt 86
    Mark Cavendish 85
    Romain Bardet 70
    Jarlinson Pantano 65
    Julian Alaphilippe 62
    Alexander Kristoff 59

    Team:
    Movistar 50

    Total finishers: 195 (which I believe is a record)
