  • Richard says:

    How is the order worked out and when is it announced?

    • Hendrik Eppinga says:

      The order will be announced later, it is normal that the favourites will start at the end.

      • Richard says:

        Will Froome have the advantage of going out last, if that is the case seems a bit unfair on Doumolin who was favourite before he broke his wrist. Will be close between the 2 and the deciding factor could be the running order!
