Very thoughtful and ingenious of Kittel and his PR people!

Feeling pretty good about my team for today (no pens), but that's rarely a good sign...

Betancur, Nibali, Rui Costa
Izagirre, Thomas, Kelderman
Sepulveda, Frank Schleck, Rovny

Kept Chava and Degenkolb in took a pen. If Degnkolb tries his darndest he may stay in top 10 today and top 5 in young riders but will definitely be winning the points. Hopefully Chava will stay around for the early mountains even if he does not contest the finish.

Betancur, Kelderman, Slag, Chava, Degenkolb, Sepulveda, Denifl, Thomas, Styby

Couldn't afford Costa or Fuglsang, got the other faves and a few decent wildcards though. Plus Bernaudeau!

Vuillermoz in the lead, slides out and crashes going up an uphill 180º hairpin! Costa passes him, then Betancur passes and wins!

1,2,4 and little else. Shame about Kelderman's mechanical at just the wrong moment, was interested to see how well he would do. His Nibs bailed out, playing the long game for the TdF this year looks like...

I put Betancur and Thomas in my team last night but even though they show as being in my squad I have been awarded points based on my team before I made the changes. I'm guessing Dave is going to fix that.

Ah, no, the results for stage 6 aren't showing at all. My mistake.
