Must be my turn to start one of these. I've got the top 5 bookies favourites (co-incidence - there were no odds for the stage when I picked my team). I intended to to keep a transfer for the last stage, but blew it on today's in the (possibly vain) hope of a 750 point badge. Still, at least I've got my first podium badge of the season - it took me months last year.

Ive gone bold, 20 penalty points

Expect my only non-scorer to be Ewan (hopeful that he will win the final stage)

20 penalties also. No real inspiration, think everyone will have similar teams for this stage

LOTS of high scores today. Foolishly went for Thomas over Porte and paid the price.

Incidentally, I'm sure I did worse, relatively speaking, last year - but finished higher. Are there waaay more people playing?

If so, good  4

No kidding. 170-odd points and I went backwards. Desperate times call for desperate measures. I'm bringing in a Van Poppel.

196 after a 10 point penalty plus a full house badge. Gone up a few places so not bad i suppose.

1,2,3,6,10,11.....Top 5 + Thomas on GC....top 5 in points comp....2,3,5 in KOM plus mountain bonus for Domont and team-mate bonus for Thomas looks like 200pts+ exactly(haven't got that badge yet!!)

No penalties.

Should be enough to stay top of Forum's Scorum's and i'm delighted that my first 50/50 decison between Porte and Gesink came up trumps!!

Not bad; 1,2,3,4,6 and 10. Looks like moving to Premium is paying off.

208 points, 316 on stage and moved up 489 places.

After 3 years finally getting the hang of this  4

Standard high indeed.

I've gone all-in on for the final stage: three Big Name Sprinters (plus one cheaper guy who's been doing well). Thankfully no penalty points incurred, so with a bit of luck should get something out of the last stage.

However...

Will I regret having no Aussies among the fast men? I'm hoping Goss and Renshaw have no-shows tomorrow...

By the way, is it just me or have Drapac had a pretty torrid home tour? Expected more from Cantwell and the various I Can Haz Sulzbergers.
