The point of doing a prediction is doing it before the race starts and not changing it during a race. You assess your prediction after the race is over.

I'm not changing my list, I'm just updating the status. See my update in red?

Cav is still in the race and therefore still a contender. Stuff happens on the roads. Sagan could crash, or get ill so the race is not over by a long shot.

Hesjedal is out of contention for now also but the race is not over.

I would so much like to see Wiggins in yellow when they all reach Paris. But think that Evans takes the yellow jersey overall one more time.

Of course not, as it may not be until many years after that. I don't think there's even a well-defined "statute of limitations", so perhaps this year's results won't be finalized until decades from now. And indeed, the results may never be finalized per se, rather at any given point in time, there will have been a time at which they were most recently changed, whether that be on the last day of riding in the race, or subsequently.

I guess statute of limitations is 8 years so we need to wait 9 years to know for sure.

Not if Armstrong is stripped of his victories going back to 1999.
