ooh - decisions decisions

I don't have Greipel at the moment, is he too expensive? I have to take out Demare to get him, and my spare points aren't going to get me a decent rider for the second one removed.

Otherwise
Bos or Markus - who will finish for Belkin?
Based on today, will that all-important 15th place be taken by Guardini or Guarneri?

Any thoughts?

Well I haven't gone Greipel as I couldn't afford....Ive stuck with Markus, as I think Bos was a flash in he pan, and think Demare will top 5 tomorrow.

Demare
Roelandts
Kruopis
Markus
Bennett
Ruffoni
Stannard
Terpstra
Boonen

1 transfer left should I choose to use it, but doubt it

Look out for big moves by Boonen and Terpstra to let him go.

Going for his 5th GC win and 7th Points jersey.

I could have brought in Greipel and a 3.0 for Markus and Terpstra but decided to stick. Greipel in purist anyway so I'll still be happy if he does well.

Demare
Kruopis
Boonen
Terpstra
Van Staeyen
Guarnieri
Markus
Stannard
Breschel

Miles down the table for Qatar so it doesn't really matter, just trying not to fall too far behind on the overall...

Cycling quotes:

"Lotto tried to launch the sprint but they discovered that Greipel was missing from the train. This made for very confusing sprint on the wide boulevard but Demare powered down the centre of the road and took a clear win."

Sutton, Boonen and Bennati were all up there."

Greipel in for Demare after having him in for all previous five stages is going to hurt........allied to the Elmiger in for Hepburn move before the ITT that just about sums up this tour for me.

Wrong riders on the wrong stages  17

1st and 4th so far...Demare's been useful earlier on in the race and totally worth it now!

Rest of the top 10 was hard to predict..

Worst day of the tour for me. Daftly traded out Eisel (for Van Staeyen). No Demare, no Benatti or indeed anyone in top ten. Could've been worse though - I had considered taking a penalty hit to bring in Greipel.

Not a bad day for my purist, though, as had Demare.

Kept DeMare and Markus in, brought in Bennati and Guardini and didn't go for Greipel.

As Barry Markus got some youth points, I believe I have a full house badge.

Gman, why are scores delayed so much these days, what's the delay? Is it any info you can't get? Is it that you are busy with other things? I don't understand. Do you need help with the scoring? I wish I could help you out some way. It's frustrating 'cause I think the results have been available for hours. I can't imagine that it's not you not being able to get in front of a computer, 'cause you seem to be here all the time. What is it? It's so hard to understand these delays. Is it the badges again? What is it? I can't help but think it shouldn't take you more than 20 minutes or so after full results are up to do the scoring and then it's a matter of entering the info into the database, right?  22 Do you need any help with that? What's going on? Are you the only one who can do it? I don't know. Is there anything we can do to help? Would it help any if we posted the scores for you here? I'd certainly help you out any way I can...  22
