Sky induced snooze fest, doesn’t bode well for the tour.

Yates in stage 7 was slightly interesting.

yah you usually seem to nail the overall which is roughly 25-33% of the total winning score. some of us, no names mentioned *cough,* occasionally try to pair together two lesser priced riders
that come in under the total cost of some of the bigger names in the hopes that they'll kill it vs disappearing.

That's true...by the time I choose the big names, I can only spend 4 each on the rest of the riders...so I typically just choose members of the GC rider's team in the hopes they'll get assist points.

I'm somewhat hopeful that the fact that most of the top names weren't here means the Tour will be different.
