Another day for the sprinters today, a MM stage but fairly flat in the latter half means that it's likely we'll see a bunch sprint with fewer of the hard-men involved. Meersman won both of the first stages last year, can Mezgec equal this?
I've made a couple of changes dropping one DNS (Agnoli, who I'll never forgive) and one crappy domestique for an in form sprinter and another crappy domestique in the KoM jersey.
My tactic for this race is to use my transfers and if necessary use penalties too. I made the mistake of being conservative in Paris-Nice and Tirreno-Adriatico, saving transfers and trying to avoid penalties, it didn't work for me and cost me points so this week I'm testing out the opposite approach and going transfer crazy.
