So TTT today followed by a few days of brutal climbing, should be a good one to watch. Although I can't seem to find anywhere that will be showing it live.

9 climbers for me. 2 Sky, 2 Mov, BMC, Rus, Cannondale, AG2R, NetApp. One guy I'm planning to bring in tomorrow but couldn't afford today...

Cataldo/Siutsou
Evans
Anton/Capecchi
Firsanov
Salerno
Pozzovivo
Machado

Purist has 6 of those, plus 3 climbers I'm hopeful for. Enjoyed picking this one, lots of budget flexibility and few out-and-out favourites, so could have a punt on a few random climbers.

1,2,3,3,4,4,5,7 for me, just Pozzovivo not scoring as expected. Didn't realise Sky only had 6 guys, but probably would still have picked the same team. I thought the Russians might do better today...

yea i figured they might struggle with a reduced team, but hey ho, defo called that one wrong. Picked Lampre instead of NetAppEndura, and no sky at all.

NetApp kinda outta nowhere. Movistar very disappointing, Astana not great either.

Damn, I had Henao, then he got greyed out. Swapped him for Boswell. Then Boswell got greyed out, so this morning I swapped him for, of course, Henao, who has back by then... now I find that Henao didn't start... not a good way to start...

Sky have been changing there rosters like anything! One minute Boswell is riding, then they announce Boswell for Fleche, then they change there minds again.

Had the official startlist gone up a hour earlier yesterday, the changes would have been last night

I can't pick Evans as he is my least favourite cyclist in the world.

You're just going to ignore him then?  39 What if he wins the Giro del Trentino? You wouldn't ignore him for the Giro then, would you? I admire your conviction but, there must be a limit to it if he shows superb form, huh? I don't think you'll have to worry so much, but, it's interesting... I cringe every time I have to think about putting Kreuziger on one of my teams...  45 I always hope he works for Alberto and won't score a thing!  22

Yep I am going to ignore him. And he won't be in my team for the Giro either.

The scoring information for stage 1 does not mention any points for the young rider classification. This only appears in stage 2. Should the YR points awarded be therefore removed?
Yes, I also got caught on the Henao/Boswell/Henao debacle.

It can be re-scored, however I may have missed ticking the box to select YR for stage 1, as a YR rider jersey was awarded at the end of the stage like the GC jersey (whereas points and mountain jerseys were not).

Gkam, I couldn't work it out, one startlist that came out had Henao on, then Boswell, then Boswell was on Fleche on Skys site and Henao back on Trentino. Then only when the final startlist was published was Boswell back on Trentino, and unfortunately got published somewhere around 4/5pm on Monday, just after I left home and then wasn't on the computer to see that startlist until tuseday morning.
