I'm away out early so i thought i would start todays stage off before i went.

Does everyone agree its a bunch sprint finish or will someone try to grab the limelight with a breakaway.

Will Orica try to cut down any breaks for Matthews, do they have the team to do that ? only time will tell.

I doubt he will be looking at this but my sympathies go to Dan Martin  2

Also can someone explain why Matthews got 30 points and Hepburn 20 ? i thought all the team members scored the same in a TTT.

Hepburn got 20 as his team won, Matthews got 20 for the stage plus 6 for GC plus 4 for the young rider classification. Hepburn wasn't in the line when Green edge finished having been dropped earlier.

By the way, if anyone is very bored, here is the preview podcast we recorded at my local radio station. I got a couple of facts slightly wrong but in general I think it sounds fine. All good/bad feedback welcome!

Wow, thanks guys, really appreciate it. Hoping to do a bit more, maybe a weekly roundup or something. We'll also be doing a monthly cricket podcast, and quite a lot of stuff during the World Cup and the TdF, so its going to be a busy summer! Follow me on Twitter if you're interested, so I don't have to annoy people on here that aren't!

Make the results section of the roundup shorter than the preview of the coming stages based on how they have been riding I would suggest.

I really wanted Colbrelli today, but went for Ventoso because of the TT. Hope that wasn't a mistake.
