Yes, Quemeneur is cheap as well so a few people might have some bonus breakaway points today. Getting towards the business end now, could do with something similar to yesterday, except with Meersman instead of Hofland...

EDIT didn't realise Meersman had retired. Real shame, I was interested to see if my sprinty purist tactic would work, but now I'll never know...

Meersman's going to have to do it from a Belgian hospital - seems unlikely

Apparently he crashed into the back of a car

Took out Romain Feillu last night on the basis I didn't think he could hack it in the sprint. Balls

Yeah, just 1,6,7 plus scraps for me, Coquard and Fonseca didn't manage to get up there today, and my cheap guys didn't feature. So many options for transfers tomorrow...

Fouchard looks like last man home so could be big points for him today...

1,6,7,10,16 on the stage for me.

1,2,3,5,6,7 on general

1.2.4.5 on points

1,2,3,4 on youth

and Fouchard in the break.

So not too bad.
