This is my first (half) season running PTP.

I may do tee shirts next year.

GC - I can see it being a very open Tour, and as such I'm going for the left field GC pick of Carlos Betancur.

I've no idea how his form is, or even if he's trying to complete the race, but he was good in the Giro.

Stage 1 standard pick of OPQS
My Men 2016 - Cav, Swifty, Tomekke, Valv, Eddy Bos, Spartacus, Styby, Nibbles, G.

It's that fool Kirby again I think, shame he can't be used there as a capote, please god don't team him up with smugger. 21 stages with the sound off is going to get a bit testy as the numb nut might say :shock:
