Simon Yates is another that I thought had dropped out before the start, but is listed on a couple of the results lists - I'm assuming he isn't racing (and won't be picking him anyway) but out of interest - anyone know if he definitely is/isn't there?

On another note, another 10 point penalty for me today.

Gone like this, could do well, could be a big bust.

Wiggins
Acevedo
Dennis
Craddock
Haga
Machado
Stetina
Tvetcov

Took like a bajillion penalty points so far in ToC. I can really see the mistakes I've made too, both not researching properly and not thinking through changes properly. Nearly two years at this caper and I'm still learning lessons.

Should have gone Routley. He has 10 points already as he crested the mountian 1st (and 10 riders score) Likely to be 15 as he will have the mountain jersey too me thinks

Just a heads up, doesn't look like im going to be able to get the scores done tonight, as it looks like its going to be a late one and I have an early start due to an assessment thing at work. So I will try to get them done in the morning before I go but if I don't get chance they will be up around 2.30 in the afternoon.

Just apologising in advance for any delays with this stage.

Just got in from the pub, my team is...

Wiggo
Acevedo
Stetina
Craddock
Machado
Cooke
Bolivar
Dennis
Haedo

With 30 pens.

Also annoyed I forgot Routley - after deciding yesterday I would definitely bring him in. Serves me right for nearly forgetting to do my transfers and rushing it. Still, if Bolivar springs a surprise then I'll not be complaining...

Dammit, close to perfect. Went for Bolivar over Yates and Cooke over Jones, both were close calls. Nearly had 8 of the top 9, still chuffed with 6!

1,2,3,6,7,8,9, pretty happy, but bit annoyed at not taking extra pen on Yates. Wiggo set a very impressive tempo last 5k, even if he lost 20 secs in final. A potential worry for the next SF?

1,2,3,5,7,9 with no penalties. OK.

Purist 1,2,4,7,9 and the others are sprinters.

Pleased with that.

Nice to see it doesn't just happen to me.

Mind you that is a schoolboy error Twy.

I can't count.

But can you check the scores for Acervedo and Stetina? I calculate they are both 21 points, but they are listed as 26 and 16.

My "go to" site for results, Cycling News, has Konig 18 in ITT and 47th in stage1...

It's unfortunate... They're probably using last year's races to populate their results like TER says... They're not quite as reliable as they once were...

Stetina should be 21points
Acervedo is 26 points (5 point team bonus)
