I hope none, for them and for all riders, but they have been a crash fest of late. It might have been easier to ask which stages will they both stay upright.

Once I've secured sponsorship there will be huge valuable awesome prizes awarded to whoever gets the rightest answer.

Well, they've both got form so I've gone for Stages 1 or 2.

lmfao someone else chose 7-8 as well

Stage 7 - Astana drill it on the descents of the Côte de la Croix de la Libération and Signal d'Uchon. Porte is distanced, Woods takes out Geraint and himself. Castroviejo finally snaps, flips the bird to the camera and gets a stage win.

guilty. altho i almost chose 3-4. if sivakov (and i like him) was riding as well, my over/under for crashes between the three would be set at 7 crashes.

Everyone may choose all the stages.

Let's hope all the king's horses and all the king's men get it right this time.

There will be turns and pavement in all of them. What more do the lads need?

Brailsford doesn't seem to be good at finding riders who've passed Bike Handling 101...

Yes.

Thomas will be taken out by a nekkid fan running amok with a giant foam guitar.

Richie Porte will be taken out by Geraint Thomas's water bottle that pops loose after Thomas is hit by the nekkid fan with the giant foam guitar.

Froome will crash on the slowest, easiest turn in the time trial.

It looks like we have some winners!

Unfortunately, stage 3 put G on the tarmac. Based on poll votes, that puts ClydeClydeson , Shadco , Tensor , and yours truly are in the money. Clyde^2 batting .500 for guesses to date, and the rest of us at 1.000 though with more to come. Except for Welshboy who is already out the back.

Arbitrary commissaire rulings:
- mass pile ups of stage 1 neutralized. Don't know and don't care if our protagonists went down.
- for final scoring, let's wait and see how this plays out with multiple picks, multiple crashes. Some kind of devious purity / power ranking sure to upset all players must be devised.

How many stages does it take to ruin GC ambitions? A one, a two, a three - crunch! Three.
