Forgive me but I am new to this board. I may not be well versed in the tactics or protocol of the race.
One thing that I wish could happen is to force GC contenders to actually race during the flat stages. It would be interesting to see changes in time and place in the overall standings. It seems like there is no movement until the mountain stages. Should 6 stages determine the order of an event that is 21 stages long? Is this the accepted rule of the peleton? Is it protocol that during these stages GC contenders will not challenge those that are in contention for the green jersey?
Reward those on the breakaway with time bonuses
Include time bonuses throughout the stage that everyone can challenge. 1st three out of each group including the peleton get the bonuses.
One or two stages where you are penalized time if you don't finiosh within the top 20
Those are just some thoughts.
