I really wasn't sure who to go for today. Fortunately, I overslept so decision made - 4 transfers for tomorrow.

Kittel, nizzolo and hurel in, kept froome, spilak and talansky for tomorrow. Have a bit of a lead but that could disappear today if hofland does well, or albasini...

Gone Kittel and Nizzolo after yesterdays disaster, also brought in Spilak for 10 pens, as he is likely to still lead and will be useful tomorrow. Also still have albasini and Iglinsky who could be in the mix

Albasini Voeckler and Bakelants in break. That is a strong group. Kwiatowski and Hofland DNS today.

Learnt a big lesson today:

Decided I definitely wanted Albasini as my sole sprinty type for today as parcours looks like it may be too much for them. Just got back from my early morning ride , saw the break, and though YES!!! checked my team and NO!!! Nozzolo? how did he get there, and no Alba. should have checked it properly before confirming last night. Well at least I got rid of Kwiatowski.

I don't know what happened, the break ended up going the wrong one, so they have to neutralise something

Sold Dennis and Peraud, bought in Nizzo and Mezgec.
Still got Alba. He has to be man of the tour, regardless who wins it.
2 stage wins? and now in break, Gutsy.

Kwiatkowski said. "I understood I was really tired after a long period of racing at a high level... Now it's really the time to stop and recharge my batteries. I have to thank the team for letting me take these two extra days of recovery. I will spend them at home... I've only been home for five days since January. ... now it is really the perfect moment to back off, recover and spend time with my family at home before I start focusing on the next races."

And then there were three:

Oops - yesterday didn't go very well, dropped to second.

Need Talansky and Tony Martin to outscore Dennis, Izagirre and Herrada by 15 points (approx). Reckon I'll probably just miss out...  2
