tour sweeps – the final classification

so the tour has been run and won and this year we have a different winner but the same result.  whilst the quick-step and bora teams had the run of the stages, the final classification belonged to the gc riders.  with two riders in the top 3, team sky again took the lion’s share of the prize pool.  in fact, not just the lion, but the tiger, giraffe and half the damn savannah.  team sunweb had a good finish with dumoulin and lotto nl had two in the top 5.  after that it is getting pretty thin.  movistar jumped up a bit, but overall there were less winners than….

since this is based on real winnings, the dollar amounts from our prize pool equate to just over $700,000 for team sky, whilst my team, lotto soudal, walked away with $16,000.  not a  lot of money to run a team for 3 weeks.  honestly, it sounds like it wouldn’t even feed greipel for a week.

so, the team winnings are listed below and the final classifications can be found on the leaderboard page. as usual, send an email with your bank details and we will deposit your winnings.  if you want to donate your “winnings” back to the club, let me know.
