At almost 900 points behind 30th, my Binck-Bank TTers need to start clawing back some points.

341 Markus Benett   24
342 Christian Pocock   24
343 Tod Henderson   24
344 Kirk Workman   29
345 Richard Levin   35

There's expected to be one change for Espana, with Dean Shields coming in for Tod Henderson.

Indeed, money plays for a sure a role in the selection decisions.
In a situation where the cyclists have a contract with their team ( TdF ) but are riding for their nation in the olympic race with a different staff.
But some mutations have each a different story, although i.m.o. the real reason does not have to be the reason they released in the press.

For example topsprinter Sam Bennett is deselected with as official reason a knee injury.
But his team manager reacted like this ;
“I cannot prove that he does not have knee pain, but I am starting to think more and more that it is more fear of failure than just pain.”
So this is a big part of his reason why Bennett is deselected.
And in my opinion this might have something to do with it also ;
the fact that Bennett leaves his team at the end of 2021, and signed a contract with rival team Bora-Hansgrohe.

Maybe this fact is of influence ; the Olympic roadrace starts just 6 days after the TdF finishes.
For me, this is something to consider in the final choices of the 15 picks.
I don't know why any of them would think they can do both, or at least both well, and particularly given that some did the Giro too.  And for those wanting "race legs," surely a shorter race would do fine.

If I was a team manager, I'd be saying no to having those seeing Olympic glory in the TdF, of course money comes into it (TdF paying teams based on who starts the race).

Same here, and I have never seen so many mutations before a race or a tour.
Also it seems like an ongoing process of mutations, that is new to me too, so far it changes every single day.

stage 1 BBT ;
16º  Stubbe
Very good result of my hillsclimber.

stage 2 BBT ;
21º  Gyring-Nielsen
26º  Skurk ("helper")
Ups, the big gamble with 1 EP in s1 was a failure. Gyring-Nielsen was behind ánd isolated from the start, and he never returned.
Normally this was a good opportunity to gamble ( no guts, no glory ), and I don't mind if it goes wrong sometimes.
But this time it was not smart to gamble with a not-favorite in a stormy race, who has a very bad director. I should have known better.

Despite this tactical failure race, there were happy faces in the SPORTLIFE-teambus. :)
35yo "helper" Skurk was still in the s4 front group, and he would have done a perfect helper's job if his teamcaptain had a good start.
But despite the helpers role, he scored some points, and this means that he won something  8) ;
Jens Voigt's trophy ( points with a 35yo ) --> just 6 managers have this achievement.
