Bit compromised today as I went for a good TTT, and my one change was planned from the start - Demare in for Malori. Couldn't fit Greipel in without a couple of penalties, which I thought probably wouldn't be worth it...

Cav
Petacchi
Kittel
Demare
Impey
Santaromita
Arredondo
Goos
Nuyens

Only time will tell whether my 30 point penalty was worth it. 2 sprint stages though.

Looks like the break is set, 2 mins after just a few km...

Canola
Dowsett
Teklehaymanot
Malacarne
De La Cruz

Good to have Malacarne in the break for my purists, was optimistic about moving up the purist overall table this week but Meersman's crash I reckon will have cost me a good 200 points. Maybe Malacarne can make up for it today...

Its tricky, 5% last km tomorrow. Should still be a sprint, but might be a bit less predictable, hence keeping Impey over Greipel. We shall see - I like it when there's marked differences between the teams on the forum...

Hmm, didn't see that 5%. Will have to give it some thought.

I've got Teklehaymanot in the break, he seems to be up for the breaks the last couple of comps.

Looking at the scoring, that was pretty dire all round
