2 Van Avermaet
These three on break with Huffman
Gap 4'30 at 37k
8'10 at 50k
Brought in froome and konig today....bit premature maybe???
I've gambled big time on the sky train making things too tough for the punchers and I've gone climber friendly a day early. So in come froome, j rod, gesink, konig, and , err, Andy schleck... Don't shoot me, didn't know who else to bring in with the cash I had left!! Stybar saver.
Bookies had Sagan then stybar as faves. We shall see! Personally I've had a little wager on gesink at 25:1 e/w as a climber who can sprint- he had been as long as 50:1! Hoping for a top 3 from him.
Brought in Froome, Bardet, Moreno and Gesink for today. Hoping to see Sky push it hard and drop as many as possible.
Vanspeybrouck now DNF after a crash
Following my atrocious drunken transfers for Stage 3, I sobered up and brought in King Leopold, Styby and Kenny Elissonde.
Yeahh I didn't go too well yesterday, took out Greipel and Bouhanni
Advantage is I've got 2 more GC guys than most...hopefully that'll help! Koenig and Pozzovivo in today.
gap down to 1'
Boonen Greipel and Howard and A schleck dropped from main group
Phew, forgot to make transfers, glad I still have the winner in there.
1 SAGAN Peter
2 URAN Rigoberto
3 NIBALI Vincenzo
4 IMPEY Daryl Orica GreenEDGE
5 GALLOPIN Tony
1 Sagan 2 Uran 3 Nibali 4 Impey 5 Gallopin
If you kept or took Sagan in, you are laughing, Not only did he win, but he's got GC, Points (I think) and Youth jersey
OMG!!!! i took out impey and gallopin to put Stybar and his nibs in .... another mare !
Today really sucks...
Hmm - I was 50-50 between Froome and Uran and went the wrong way. Still have Sagan tho', and Uran in purists...
Full results are up on PCS.
Just 1,11,15,17 for me. Another 1,2 for purist.
Sagan leads GC, then there are 22 guys within 25 seconds, and the rest are over a minute back. Of those 22, I'd say maybe 15 of them would be considered climbers, so the podium is between them. Some good climbers over ten minutes back so there's even a chance of a breakaway win tomorrow maybe??
more points (50ish)than yesterday's stage (36) for me but not much
Glad I made no changes
Sagan,Gallopin and Moser in the top 20 plus all their various competition standings teammate bonus etc doesn't look the best but it seems good enough to put m into 29th on the race with 4 transfers to use on Green Mountain
Disastro for me! Might as well pack my bags now
