I see that I got a 3 point bonus for the presentation,while I did not present my races in the thread. As much as I would want that 3 extra bonus points, I also want this contest to be fair, so my 3 bonus points should be removed

So first off, 2 issues I noticed regarding the routes and the given rules (so I had to eliminate some good routes that were overall otherwise fine): for Milano-Roma, stage 7 was a Mountain Top Finish, not just a mountain stage with a hill top finish & Stage 8 a (medium) mountain stage, not just a stage with a small hill in the end.

Anyway, ranking below. As usual, I mainly point out the issues as criticizing is easier than applauding, so if I say nothing, just assume I think the route was good :p


Could have exchanged a hilly stage for one more sprint stage in Milano-Roma, but no issues otherwise.


Same as above a bit, but I liked your overall route a bit more.

THIRD PLACE: Benoit.guillot

Final ITT is a bit too long for a Tirreno clone imo, but the other stages are great.


To be honest, I just wrote "nice" initially. Don't see any issues, good job.

FIRST PLACE: Jibvalverde

Same as above, but you take the win by the final stage in Milano-Roma. Just an excellent stage for a place that's harder to map out than Nice.

FIFTH PLACE: JoostvandeBeek
I like very much Milan-Rome but the Bissagne-Languedoc it's just ok to me because of the two Time Trial

FOURTH PLACE: Belgian444
Two good tours, I prefer Bissagne-Languedoc but I think it could miss the second sprint; Milan-Rome is perfect for the request but the last stage seems too weak

THIRD PLACE: Davandluz
Milan-Rome satisfies the request, just I don't love the Time Trial; Bissagne-Languedoc satisfies the request and it isn't common

Milan-Rome is very close to my idea to how should be this tour, so i like it a lot. Bissagne-Languedoc is almost perfect to the request

FIRST PLACE: Celentano Tour
To me, the best Milan-Rome and the best Bissagne-Languedoc

First of all, I'm sorry but I wanted a last stage of Milano - Roma going from and to the eternal city (as for Nice in Paris-Nice). Every one who didn't respect that rule lost many points

FIFTH PLACE: Jajoejoe (12.5/20 overall)

Your Milano - Roma is a bit too hilly but the overall is good.

FOURTH PLACE: IamCeeKae (12.5/20 overall)

Not much to say about your roads. They're respecting the rules, they are nice and pretty but something's missing for me, may a bit more of enthousiasm as you choose not to use some of the key part I've desired.

THIRD PLACE: Davandluz (13.5/20 overall)

Your moutain stage of Bissagne - Languedoc is the best I've seen. For the rest, you respect all the criteria but I just like the two others better.

SECOND PLACE: JibValverde (16/20 overall)

Arf, what a shame you choose not to start your last stage from Roma... However, your Bissagne Languedoc is one of the best I've seen !

FIRST PLACE: Mauro (17.5/20 overall)

You drew races very simlar to mine and I liked it both ! Even if you have too much transfert on your Bissagne - Languedocto my taste, you are the best on this contest, congrats
