My purist team is taking a kicking, down to six now after losing Kittel, Rodriguez and Chicci. Wonder how many more will drop out before the end.

I knew he stop today. Forgot all about him last minute trading. Bugger.

2 trades sold matthews(should have taken pen for uran yesterday, lucky i biught in Ulissi) and Rubiano.
Traded IN Uran and Zoidl.( was so close to getting Wellens very high opinion of this kid).

Arredondo
Evans
Quintana
Ulissi
Majka
Uran
Zoidl
Godoy
Chicchi At Wits End

Good luck.
Take it easyn on cuddles hey, he has been a great ambassador for the sport. He deserves everything he has got, I doubt many riders have worked as hard or been more professional. Certianly if Wiggo had the same commitment..sky,s.
Must be that half aussie side in him.lol rotten old dad.
I respect most of the riders, brave men and women. Only dislike a couple inckuding the current world champion.
Sorry for spelling , on tablet.

Waaaa Waaaaa !

I have Monsalve in the break, he could be good for top 5 if it stays away (big "if" tho'). Just realised its the rest day tomorrow so have more transfers than I thought for the sprint. Happy days!

Also have Monsalve. Had him pinned more for an attack off the peloton toward the end, but hopefully he'll grab some break points instead.

No combative points today, the Fuga prize only gets handed out if there are 11 or less in the break Wink

Average for me, was hoping for big points from Monsalve when I saw he was in the break but he couldn't quite hack it. I think Malacarne was one of my three Italians though!
