made 2 changes of no real significance as far as the stage is concerned, but will hopefully pick up a few points here and there to mantain my slow climb from the lower depths of the leagues  26

Made two transfers for stage 3, those two were Gavezzi and Geschke. That worked well. Took penalty points to get them and Moreno out and both Kittel and another sprinter in. But penalty points used to bring in Haas (so as to afford Kittel) so I hope GC does not change.

Couldn't decide on second cheap sprinter so asked non-cycling family in house to choose out of Renshaw, Goss and Von Hoff purely on name alone. I think you can guess how that resulted.

Just seen the above results I take it there was a crash as they aren't the ppl I'd expect to see on a sprinters stage  39

Another stage that went horribly wrong! Making no transfers rather than the 4 I made would have been better!

Any idea about KOM/intermediate points? Think Hansen is still leading KOM.

142 in the end, not too bad. Brought in three more GC-ish chaps for Old Willunga Hill, including a bit of a punt on Geraint Thomas.

Still have two transfers banked so will have four for the sprinty stage the day after. I'm in the high 300s on the overall, so hoping for two big stages now to push into the top hundred.
