74 of the 184 riders have been selected, and while no-one thought that it was worth putting 85% of their budget on Roglic's shoulders, three have decided to go big on Pogacar, costing 2/3 of the funds available.  It is probably fair to say that one day of the Tour de Suisse made a big difference to may selections.

Rider popularity
30 teams (out of 39): URAN URAN Rigoberto
25: THOMAS Geraint
19: LOPEZ MORENO Miguel Angel
18: KELDERMAN Wilco
17: HAIG Jack
15: HIGUITA GARCIA Sergio Andres
14: EWAN Caleb, GEOGHEGAN HART Tao
I will treat that group of 8 as the Collective Wisdom team.  It is over budget (4107), but if I were to drop Ewan for the next most popular it would be way below, and would be even more similar to some of the teams.  It gives us something to compare ourselves with anyway.

11: BUCHMANN Emanuel
10: CAVENDISH Mark, HAMILTON Lucas, O'CONNOR Ben
9: BOL Cees
7: SAGAN Peter
6: LUTSENKO Alexey, MCNULTY Brandon
5: KRUIJSWIJK Steven
4: CARAPAZ MONTENEGRO Richard Antonio, COQUARD Bryan, GARCIA CORTINA Ivan
3: ALAPHILIPPE Julian, BILBAO LOPEZ DE ARMENTIA Pello, FROOME Chris, GAUDU David, GREIPEL André, GUARNIERI Jacopo, POGACAR Tadej
2: ARANBURU DEBA Alexander, COLBRELLI Sonny, GOGL Michael, MAJKA Rafal, MEINTJES Louis, MEURISSE Xandro


There are a lot of fairly similar teams: 13 have Thomas, Uran and Lopez.  The minor picks could be key... (and I started writing that before Lopez became less of a GC candidate today)
