    TDF top 10 forum competition

    I am challenging everyone to a competition picking the top 10 for this TDF. The criteria is this...

    Pick your top 10 in order 1-10
    All picks to be completed by the end of Wed. 7/6/05 PST
    Winner has most riders in top 10 no matter placing
    If there is a tie, top three ranking wins
    If still tied earliest submission wins
    Once submitted no changes will be accepted, only 1 submission of 10 per participant

    I will send $5 to the winner, I will denote this by typing YES at the bottom of my selections when I post them. If the forum determines this is not appropriate then we will remove the $ option. If someone types NO for $, then they may win but I will send $5 to the highest contestant saying YES

    No one has made a pick for the maillot brun. I think Landis takes it. It's his year!

    I am liking the way things seem to be shaking out....what a shame not to have looked at Rasmussen more closely. Valverde and Evans seem to really be on form...and Kloden...wow

    I included Valverde in my original list but I accidentally mispelled it as M-A-Y-O. Mods, please correct this error.

    Getting the top two correct is obviously more important than getting 9 and 10 correct. So, based on getting the top 2 right, and having many of the correct names for the top ten, THIS list looks like the front runner.

    Jkoman -- I also like your original pick of Valverde, even though he had to drop out with an injury. You were the only one to select him in your top ten.

    My list also has the top 2 correct and I have six of the top ten right now.
    But that is not the contest rules, as orginally proposed by Jkoman.

    Hey, I got the top 3 and missed the top 6 for lack of Mancebo in my picks. Got Rasmussen for KoM (good call, Smoothie). Maybe I should retire and "go out on top."
