Personally I'd like to thank Pinot, Voeckler for such a stellar ride, not a single point between them , at least they turned up, which is more than can be said for Sorensen.......

I hate the fact that at some point in time Quintana and Rui Costa were both a core part to the Scrubbers, yet swapped out due to whim of the DS.

10 points for sarcasm. Love it. 

I got burnt from Pinot as well. Thought he was gonna give it a good crack but I think for the whole tour he sat on someones wheel at the back in hiding. 

Im kicking myself for not picking Bollema originally. Just thought Pinot would be fighting hard for the white jersey again.....wrong.

Apart from Froome being the hands down favorite for yellow, and Sagan for Green, it was was gonna boil down to the rest to make up the rest of the points.

I think the trick is to pick a few solid riders that will guarantee you some points then look out for some wild cards that might be let off the leash by their DSs to take a stage win. Quintana was probably the winning card this year. My friend told me to get him,... but I forgot his name and picked Costa instead.

Costa was a wild card based on his win on the Tour De Suisse. If it weren't for Valverde being left behind on that windy stage and losing 10mins of the GC, Quintana would have maybe gone for a stage win or 2 but not for overall honors. From what I read Quintana was there to help Valverde in the mountain climbs and gain valuable experience in the mean time.

Alot of tipping has to do with wise choices and luck predominantly. A big accident can end a favorites race too easily, or an injury that wont allow them to pursue their very best.  

I'm just surprised Costa netted so few points. Riders like Fulgsang and Mollema netted more points than he did despite his much better stage and team results. Looks like top ten GC finishers are a better bet than multiple stage winners. Pity my GC random was Peraud and his expletive deleted collarbone, and my GC 'safe bet' failed to recover from riding around beautiful sunny Italy in May.

Bit shocked that even though I managed to get the White, the Dots and the Green jerseys I still finished in the bottom half of the mini-league.
