The Tour de France actually made it through the first week without any teams being kicked out with the “two strikes” rule. No rider tested positive for COVID-19. Unfortunately, the Race Director, Christian Prudhomme, did! He says he’s not part of the bubble so no big whoop. He’ll just hang out somewhere for a week and then join again. Hmm, OK.
It seems the rule remains that if any two people test positive for COVID-19 from the same team (riders and support), that team is out. Unfortunately Ineos Grenadiers, Mitchelton-Scott, Cofidis, and AG2R staff did have a single positive each. Therefore, as it currently stands, they are one more positive away from expulsion.
TdF Fantasy Team
And how is my fantasy team doing? Two of them crashed today, and one broke his collarbone and won’t be continuing. I’ve already had to have five rider changes due to injury and performance issues. I’m now down to three more changes and then I’ll have no more changes left. I’m killing it though, I’m ranked 53474th. I have no idea how many are in the contest, but I have been as low as approximately 68,000th.
