Giacomo Nizzolo

Not really, I had six transfers coming out of the weekend so figured I may as well use them. In theory Mezgec and Swift could stick it out tomorrow along with (long shot) Bouhanni so I figured I'd get them in today. Tomorrow has break written all over it so I might not bother with any changes and take four into the TT.

Also, as I said elsewhere, at 10 points each penalty transfers are no longer that expensive and are a viable tactic. I'm expecting to maybe make 2-4 penalty transfers this week but I should have made that up plus some if today ends in a sprint.

Bouhanni, Mezgec, Nizzolo, Viviani
Evans, Arredondo
Monsalve, Armee, Romero

3 for tomorrow, so will probably take out Nizz/Viv for a couple of GC guys, and one left for a gamble on who's gonna hit the break!

What I would really love to happen today is for Apollonio to win! Fat chance obviously.

I made 9 transfers last night. I'll go and scramble some eggs now as I'm sure my face will be needing them later.

Unbelievable. The guy at the top of the standings put Arredondo in just before he scored a pretty packet, and has just put Bandiera in who is 8.35 up in the break of 2 riders with an intermediate sprint coming up.

Viviani suffered from a fever yesterday, wonder whether he will be affected, and whether it is likely to spread through the peloton. Kittel also retired with a fever last week.

I really wish that they'd publish that kind of information before we all go and pick our teams  14

I can't imagine Viviani will drop out unless he has no other choice, tomorrow and Thursday at least will be easier days for him. Kittel dropped out no doubt with one eye on the Tour where he'll probably ride. Viviani though will surely be replaced with Sagan for the TdF so this could be his one big race of the year and he is still in with a shout of the Points Jersey.

Aaagh, this gets worse and worse. The guy at the top has Bandiera, who no doubt will win combativity to add to 6 pts in the intermediate sprint and Viviani.

All he needs now is for Viviani and Mezgec to finish 1-2 and he will increase his lead.

Nightmare.

Apollonio was caught in there, so was Viviani and as far as I can see hasn't come in yet. Can't see Arredondo or Gasparotto either.

Farrar 105th
Appolonio 106th
Gasparatto 142nd
Viviani 147th
Arredondo 161st

Think the last man was Zoidl in 181st.

I think Viviani bagged 2 points at the intermediate sprint if that helps.
