I don't think it will be a mass sprint Thinking No Kittel for me....

I've gone for some 'hill sprinters'... Matthews, Rojas, Gerrans. We'll see how it goes...

Oh, already paid the price for tinkering... if not for monkeying around I would've had 6th, 14th and 20th on top of my couple of scoring riders. Moan moan bloody moan.

Still, I did have Gerrans and Griepel. Shame everyone else did too. Kittel 134th.

Von Hoff and A.N. Other in for stage two. Vivian and Marcel OUT.

115 on my purist, not bad. Totally misread this though, thought it would have been a group sprint - bah.

I need to spend more time looking at the profiles !

If you must break the law, do it to seize power: in all other cases observe it. Gaius Julius Caesar.

Wig you may have done me on the podium badge, but I still made a good start, as I had 4 of the top 5, just missing Von Hoff!

Not bad for my purists either, just pretty much swap Gesink in where I had Bouet in standard

Is the points breakdown for my team available anywhere - i.e. who got what points in my team?

Below the badges, if you click on your own score you'll get a pop up showing what each rider scored.

Are the KOM points correct? Adam Hansen scored 0 but according to procyclingstats.com won the mountain sprint and is the leader so should score 11?

Apologies if I am missing something obvious!

Can Dave add a 'snarls' button, the opposite of like, but without any implied animosity?

I think TDU is running their young rider as under 23. Is road.cc using the same age criteria for your young rider?

If not is their a standing list for the age your are using?
