I nearly went for the German from giant shimano, but finally plumped for an fdj winner of a stage in a grand tour 2013

Got rid of Kittel and Viviani, hoping the couple of climbs kill off the sprinters and my guys get me some points.

Break out in front - Will Clark (again!) and Boy Van Poppel.

Two abandons - David Tanner (Belkin) and Jose Joaquin Rojas (Movistar). Sniff! Sad to see them go  22

Flakemore's in my squad for this stage. Seems like a very, very long time ago that I last picked a rider in a small escape.

Looks like Hansen might've bagged me a couple of points too. They all count!

1,2,9,15,19 for me (plus a smattering of breakaway points). I traded out Gavazzi before stage one and haven't brought him back, which is probably a mistake. Still probably won't make any transfers for S3, save them for later.

Podium badge for my purist  4

By the way, on badges I should theoretically have earned a bookend badge - but is it not applicable to this competition? Or am I missing something on the badges bit.

If I don't get it I shall weep copious tears as it's unlikely to happen again...

Also do we have seperate badges for our standard and purist teams now as well?

Hello. I have never heard of Campbell Flakemore. Does this make me a bad person?

Yes we do have separate badges for each team.

Yup - looks that way - although the chances of me ever seeing a purist badge appear slight.

Sooo glad I put Gavazzi in. The Italians are doing me a lot of favours so far.
