2" in the end. Very very close... and yeah, Donkey blocks and stuff unfortunately influential.

Still, very interesting Tour, good design, thought ok, but something missing during the vote, but really enjoyed it finally. A big group helped too of course, no parallel tour certainly the good decision.
For the Donkeys, not a successful tour finally, but well, was kind of expected. No sprinter, climber not strong enough to win from the peloton, Matsuoka no sprint... tried, some tries weren't that bad, one with very bad ending tactic... but 0 wins. At least the Team classification, 18" at the end, yeah. Escape on stage 8 gave us that. Better than nothing, but not really great either.

Now preparing for the 1 day races!
Kraftsystemrevision! Include the distance!
Basics reform: Give blue a chance!
Don't punish bugusers. We all have to use bugs, since most of them are declared as "features"!

2 seconds. With more or less luck, it could have been the other way round. That's one of the closest finishes I've experienced myself...

I was referring more to Hessen and to some part Big Donkey.
All in all those 2" could be found in TTT, TT and maybe 3+ other stages. But its a matter of fact, that without the ridiculous help from Hessen (even ignoring the Hiroshi block) in stage 11, Houssem's advantage before the final TT would have been more than 1min. You can't ignore that.

I totally got it, was just kidding ;). And I understand your frustration. Anyway, I can't help it either, so I am just happy that it worked out for Afshin, surprisingly in the end. But a thing I wanted to ask you: With how much energy did Matoussi start on Saturday and did you not help him first? As I didn't rewatch Friday's stage, I have no idea.

I can't remember that; he had 2 helpers the whole stage, but started the TT with 954. As for the TT I was just there the first 3kms, when he lost 9" already.
