in contest •  3 months ago

After a day of rest the Tour de France is now really going to start. The coming three days we will see three mountain stages in the Alps, so that's going to be exciting.

The contest

The contest gives you multiple chances to win an SBI-share. For the stage five days from today, you have to predict:
1: the stage winner
2: the rider that wears the yellow jersey after that stage
3: the rider that wears the polka dot jersey after the stage

I'll award one SBI-share to the one that is the first predicted rider number 1, 2 or 3 (one for every rider). This means that you have to choose between being quick with your prediction (and be the first to mention a certain rider) and waiting long enough to see who is performing well in the earlier stages. If you correctly predict all of the riders (even if you weren't the first to predict that), you earn a bonus share.
If no correct predictions are given, I'll have a look at the second in the different rankings and award the one who predicted that rider. If that rider wasn't mentioned as well, I'll look to third rider (and so on).

Final moment to give your predictions is four days from today at 15:00 CEST. In this way, there are at least two stages still to finish before the prizes are awarded.

Rules

Stages to go

The coming days we will see three mountain stages in the Alps and three "in between" stages . The stage on Sunday, the stage the predictions are about, will finish in Carcassonne. There are three mountain passes, of which the last one is the toughest with 12,3 km at 6,3% (cat 1). I would say this is an ideal stage for attackers who can handle a bit of climbing.

I never thought I would win anything in your contest as I find predicting these stages very difficult. So much can happen. I got lucky with Alaphilippe :) Thank you!!

You're welcome!
I think the contest is also difficult for others, so everyone has a fair chance. Tomorrow I'll post the next one.

Congratulations, thanks to Serge Pauwels and Geraint Thomas you won 2 SBI-shares. Too bad though Pauwels crashed and might be out of the race.

He is indeed out of the race with a broken elbow!
Thanks for the sbi shares!

Too bad, especially since nothing was at stake in that sprint anymore…
Enjoy your lifetime upvotes!

A Belgian stage win, that would be nice!
