Team Keen start to draw ahead whilst my ACME Beer and Data Science Pro-Cycling are propping up the bottom with The Score of the Beast.

Ha!  I've moved up to third spot!

Not any more!

"Come on Tim!" continues to make consistent progress, rising another place (the third round in a row - first place by round 8?).

You're doing well Oaky!  One day very soon I'll buy you a pint and you can tell me in intricate detail how you selected your team. I expect the same level of detail as your interweb search algorithm explanation which we all enjoyed so much  ;D

I've now lost Sagan, G & Porte from my team. I will give up now.

If it's any consolation, you're not the only one.

At this rate of retirements I won't have a team riding in to Paris....

"Come on Tim!" now breathing down the neck of Team Keen. 

ACME Beer and Data Science Pro-Cycling are inexplicably not last.  Normal service will probably be resumed after the rest day.

"Come on Tim!" overtake "Team Keen".

"Team Keen" and the "Helmet Hair Mob" drop off in their progress slightly whilst "Down the hill" continue to make very consistent gains each round and look like they could overtake "Helmet Hair" and/or "Team Keen" soon.

Great work, Oaky, but I'm struggling to maintain an interest now that I have hardly any team members left!

I dunno why I have the straightest boring line on the chart, but at least I seem to be gradually breaking away from the grupetto.

Just wish I could have at least one nice wavy curve, hopefully going up just a little bit.

"Come on Tim!" drops "Team Keen" and is now the sole breakaway.  "Team Keen" drops back towards the Peloton.

It looks like there's a aplit in the Peloton - with "Be More Mike" dropping from the first group to the second.

The Autobus is chugging along nicely at the back.

Impressively linear.

"Down the Hill" are also impressively linear, with a slightly steeper slop, and have consequently made it to the beak of the pelicanfront of the peloton.

Stage 14 Update:

"Come on Tim!" still going very well.  >500 point lead and doing equally well on sprint, mountain and transition stages although "Outrageously High Haematocrit" look like they're gaining slightly, and have moved into second.

Just wish I could have at least one nice wavy curve, hopefully going up just a little bit.

Relayer now has his nice wavy curve,  going up a bit!

I think our fate is sealed, the loss of Richie and Cav hasn't done us any favours. If we finish in the middle of the pack I'll be happy.

My team is liking the hilly stages much more than the flat ones.

Stage 15 Update:

"Come on Tim!" ahead but suffering a mild slowdown.
"Outrageously High Haematocrit" report to the anti-doping tent please.

Relayer appears to have resumed linearity.

Aye, Nairo Quintana has run out of gas again, and Sky have put the shackles on Mikel Landa.  Maybe they'll get some of their Bathgate Alps form back in time for the French imitations and get some decent results there.   ;)

Stage 17 Update:

"Come on Tim!" and "Outrageously High Haematocrit" looking like the likeliest winners, being comfortably ahead of the bunch.

Relayer update:  still linear

Primoz Roglic continues to drive "ACME Beer and Data Science Pro-Cycling" up the ranks towards mid-table mediocrity.
