I doubt there would be many who would be shed a tear that Contador lost time due to the issues regarding his ban/unban. However, that mess has been compounded by the cycling body for taking so long to put it to bed. I also thought Andy was caught out, but the time splits at the end showed he wasn't.
The time lost now won't make a difference in 3 weeks, it never do.
I still watch out of habit, I'm not very interested in the Tour since the Armstrong years.
I hate that there is no real prologue.
