Short and apparently technical ITT today.

Three changes for me (one penalty) to get some TTers in, dropped Modolo, Majka and Selvaggi for Kwiatkowski, Malori and Pereira.

I had considered swapping Costa for Martin but I think Rui can keep up today and Martin will need dropping again for tomorrow (in my eyes at least).

Costa
Machado
Kwiatkowski
Coppel
Malori
Kelderman
Pereira (V)
Fonte
Livramento

Geniez, Herrada, Costa, Spilak, Kelderman, Machado, Castroviejo, Chernetski, Ovechkin

Didn't pick Martin as he'd have to come out tomorrow and my only other TT options were Movistars. I can hopefully leave all of these in tomorrow

Agree on Martin, not sure how fit he is right now and I honestly think Costa may do well today. Martin would have needed to score 20 points more than Costa to justify additional penalty transfers and I just don't see that happening.

Would've cost me too many pens to get Kwiatowski in, should've left myself more credits in hand. Still have some decent TTers tho...

Rui Costa, T Martin, Kelderman, Castroviejo, Malori, Machado, Oliveira plus 2 cheap guys that won't score today (Mestre and Sancho).

Martin in the lead but Dowsett very close, can't tell whether Dowsett rode well or Martin didn't (hoping for the latter).

That's Martin(Algarve) and Phinney(San Luis) that Malori has beaten this season I think....still not sure he'll take the stage though

Martin scores 30 (25 for 3rd plus 5 teammate bonus) to Costa's 9 for 12th (plus any GC points) means that I probably just about picked right in not making a Martin for Costa swap.

1,2,9,12 & 16 plus 1,3 & 6 on GC. A solid 95 after penalties but nothing spectacular.

Cracking rider. I can seriously see him having a go at the Giro GC in a couple of years' time.

I think he, Stybar and Tony Martin are three of my favourite riders, and all happen to ride for OPQS.

I messed up a couple of days ago and ended up not being able to afford Kwia, so had to either take 20 pens to get him in, or leave him out on the off-chance of a mechanical or something. Made the wrong choice methinks...

2,3,9,12 - I always get the tactics wrong in TTs. Castroviejo, Machado and Oliveira were the let-downs.

Let down by Machedo and Castroviejo I think, but luckily Kwia, Martin and Malori helped out.

Already made my changes for tomorrow, taking a big risk, made 2 penalty transfers and dropped some people I think might do well in favour of some I think could be great... this could go badly badly wrong.

Well here's a first ...my purist doing better than my std , I think I'm actually 3rd best purist in the fs for this comp ....things may be looking up after a shaky few days  4

Castroviejo instead of Malori was a mistake

My purist is now 47 points ahead of my standard team and has beaten me every day. Despite rigging a team today with the express intention of making no changes for tomorrow, I think I'll be ringing in some changes tonight.

At least I have the Tour of Andalucia

Nice one - like your style. I've made 2 transfers, bringing Kwia and Chernetskiy in. Embarrassed now by how boring that is! Having said that, I still have Machado and Oliveira, might take a hit if I can find someone worth bringing in...

My risk was dropping Kelderman and Coppel, the first because I needed credits, the second because I think I picked someone who's riding better right now. On top of that I dropped Machado as I ran out of patience and Malori too as he's had his day.

Jeez.....did Castro and Spilak crash or something?

How is Cav beating them in a TT?
