Gap up to 5 mins now, that's probably your break for the day.

Very difficult comp to work out this one. Will the sprinters make it over the bumps and lumps and is the TT long enough to go purely for TT guys ?

My purist is:

Tobias Ludvigsson
Pierre Rolland
Thomas Peterson
Francesco Manuel Bongiorno
Bartlomiej Matysiak
Franco Pellizotti
Angel Madrazo
Marcel Wyss
Julien Antomarchi

My standard is:

Danilo Napolitano
Luis Leon Sanchez
Bartlomiej Matysiak
Yauheni Hutarovich
Rinaldo Nocentini
Angel Madrazo
Sylvain Chavanel
Nikolay Mihaylov
Julien Antomarchi

Break up to almost 7 minutes.

If you're wanting coverage you're best keeping an eye on twitter.

I'm following https://twitter.com/PelotonWatch which is giving updates on both Qatar and Med, there are also some hashtags for Med "#TourMed" and "#TourMed2014".

There's a lot of love for LuLu out there!! Although drheaton seems to be happy with an eight man team in the first post LOL

My standard team for(hopefully the first 2 sprinty/classics type stages):

Degenkolb
Phinney
LuLuSanchez
Boy Van Poppel
Hushovd
Hutarovich
Sicard
Fedrigo
Zoidl

Don't think Chava,Peraud et al will come into play except to finish with the bunch on these 2 stages and then attack the race on stage 3 and then the stage 4 time trial then try and fend off the likes of Betancur,Rolland and Pellizotti in the final Summit Finish

The need for Chava in a purist team left me with a weaker support cast

Chavanel
Phinney
Degenkolb
Busche(this has got a bit of a Cali feel to it?)
Devenyns
LeMevel(I seem to have been picking him forever as he's got cheaper and cheaper!!)
Duque
LuLuSanchez
Fedrigo

Ray - yes I agree about Busche - had him in until the last minute when I had to replace him with Ludvigsson for the extra credits. On the list for later in the week, as is his teammate Zoidl...

I think a lot of people will have Zoidl......you know when you look in the filter of value-high to low and skip to the last rider on the last page for your 3 credit men!!

Yes! For the same reason, I often have an AG2R rider as I scan the startlists in alphabetical order by team!

Doubt many will have their picks in the break. Berard was on my longlist, others not even considered.

Apparently Nocentini and Hutarovich have both crashed... and both in my standard  2

1,4,8,12 standard and 8,9,11,12 purist. Combine the two for a decent score. Reason I didn't pick Napolitano was because I thought today was his only scoring chance, so will be kicking myself if he makes it to the end tomorrow as well!

1,8,14 for std. I wish I'd had the courage of my convictions and Sonny C in both teams instead of just my purists (3,8 & 12)

Not sure why you didn't get the email though.

I assume you've set the email settings? I've not been getting the stage score updates that I signed up for so not sure. Something for Dave to look at me thinks.

That's my excuse. The other days are lumpier.

Although stage 3 is only 63km... even I might make the time cutoff for that...
