Another bunch sprint beckons before the rest day. Most teams will be very similar so some high scores all round unless there's an upset from a breakaway but i cant see it happening to be honest.

Nizzolo
Ferrari (In for Petacchi)
Matthews
Chicci (for Fernandez)
Durbridge
Wyss

Durbridge should be another safe 11/12 points so wasn't worth a penalty
Wyss again not worth a penalty as couldn't afford anyone else who I thought could top 10 and he could even pick u a few points anyway if he wants to finish 11-20.

Slightly potting Nacer, as he hasn't got as many km in the legs as the other sprinters. might hurt later.

Something a little bit ODD I have noticed.

BARDINI haven't had a rider in break for 2 days. very strange indeed for them or any Italian team in giro.

I was rather hoping he wouldn't take the intermediate sprint but Chicchi got 10 and has another chance on Tuesday when Tjallingi will only score 5 and can have a rest. Might have both later.

One of the few with Appollonio I think.

1-5, 7, 11, 16 plus Durbridge. Another full house! 2nd of the year, (although I don't have badges).

Why is Tjallingii only down for 17 points?

5 pts for KOM leader
6 pts for 2 KOMs on the stage
6 pts for winning the intermediate sprint
10 pts for most combative as per the official website

That's 27 points

1,2,3,4,5,16,17 and Tjallingii. I brought in Appollonio.

One short of a full house  2

196 out of a possible 218 points

Best result ever  4

Just need to find a good replacement for Landa. Think I'll leave everyone else where they are for the moment.

Edit: Even better after the update another 10 points for Tjallingii, so now 206 out of possible 228  4 4
