Morkov, Roelandts, Kroon in that order for the first sprint

Good move brining in Kroon in seems, also means I have at least 4 in the front group

Finally started to take an interest in this race after doing surprisingly well yesterday with a 170 on my standard team.

Dropped Cancellara and Haedo for Roelandts and Morkov. No Greipel, Demare or Viviani so watch today be a proper sprint for the first time in the race.

Terpstra
Boonen
Roelands
Stannard
Boom
Kruopis
Morkov
Hepburn
Guardini

1,3,7 for me

I thought Greipel might work for Roelandts considering GC and that it might be a nice little present for his lieutenant but I guess The Gorilla is Boss at Lotto Belisol

That's what I thought would happen. Still didn't get his win though. Boom the bog loser today (and he'll be sharply out of my squad); an unfortunate puncture indeed.

Got 1,3,4 out of top ten plus defo some GC and int sprint points from Morkov, Stannard and Roelandts. Waiting on top 20 to see whether this is a good day or an average day.

1 & 7 so far but got Roelandts Terpstra and Morkov for the earlier sprints so it might be a decent day.

Well couldnt be bothered to make any changes today, after filling my team with TT'ers yesterday.
But great finish by Boonen to over take Griepel on the line

Grr - nearly took a penalty to swap Boom out for Markus but Boom's "guaranteed" GC points stopped me. Still 1,4,7,9,15,20 is one of my better days so far this season! Markus and Guarnieri in now for Boom and Vanspeybrouck - all in on a full bunch finish and potential full house tomorrow...

I've now lost patience with Guardini, who I'd picked from the start and stuck with up to now. Eisel has taken his place, he's been strong so far, finished top 20 a couple of times and will hopefully be working to keep Stannard at the front and therefore be up top if another split happens (and I'm guessing it will).

Reckon the final day'll be more of a straightforward sprint finish.

163 pts on stage 4 was enough to put me back in the lead in London for the overall season  105
