Well in more objective terms. There were 5688 starters and 4422 people who got a time so 78% finished
BUT for reasons you will need to ask the ASO about a huge number of people were not broomed up and carried on finishing with a time that *should* have meant they were swept up.
The actual number of people who finished inside 10hrs (the nominal maximum time based) is 2884 so 51%. I should point out that some people could have got times > 10hrs and avoided the broom if they started in an early pen. But I think 10hrs is a good cut off point as this is the time from when ASO guaranteed the final starters would leave by to the time they said the finish closed.
So 51% or 78% or somewhere in between I am not sure if this is huge (or not) compared to previous etapes
