Below some profiles of the riders we have selected, so you can learn a bit more about them before placing your predictions!
Simon Geshke: Our bearded feel good guy. Who doesn’t love Simon Geshke? Grand Tour stage winner, always with a bright hello off the bus, Simon is always down for getting filmed getting a haircut, being himself, and always being a bit rock and roll. Oh yea, he had some serious dreadlocks as a teenager.

Adam Hansen: Our Grand Tour Hero, we’ve lost count of how many Grand Tours he’s entered at this point consecutively, but he’s for sure the record holder. And he’s not just hanging in the Grupetto, he’s won stages in the past. Adam is the Peloton’s go to tech genius, been known to act as the mobile “Genius Bar” alongside his racing duties at any event he enters.

Sam Bennett: The Irish rocket, in his first year on a World Tour Team, we’ve seen some fantastic stuff from this really nice fellow. His teammate took the Maglia Rosa on the first day of racing here, so expect high morale, and good tactics to follow.

Joe Dombrowski: One of the many glasses clad Cannondale riders, expect Joe to light it up on the hillier stages. Also check out some of his columns etc. A talented writer alongside being a talented rider.

Igor Anton: A Grand Tour veteran, Igor has had some fantastic results over the years, including holding the leader’s jersey at the Vuelta for many days until an unfortunate crash took him out at the end of the race. One of the nicest and funniest in the bunch for sure.

Omar Fraile: Another mountain goat, Omar won the polka dots at the Vuelta last year. He and his teammate 1-2 ed at the Tour de Yorkshire this year, so good form is there. Omar also likes to replace a water bottle with a speaker when it’s not a race day, for some sick beats on the road.

Michael Hepburn: The beast! Heppy is just like, so so strong. Off the back of all the track training, this guy is a monster! He also runs the pivotal instagram account: “Bravameter” rating all the different Patatas Bravas available in Catalunya. Ditch the tour books before your girona trip, consult there.

Chad Haga: Pianist, poet, what else can we say? The multi talented, multi-faceted Chad, watch out on those TT days, and give him a piano for an extra surprise.

Pete Stetina: When we first saw Pete this year in Adelaide, for real we didn’t recognise him with the SICK facial hair he started sporting. Look out for him on hilly mountain days for sure.

Nathan Haas: Well he’s already been rocking the opening stages so for sure lots more to come of this one! When not riding, he will often be spotted with his guitar, heading for a swim, or reading about politics.

We’ll be updating this regularly with more riders so check back!
