Out:Swift and Ferrari
In:Aru and Kiserlovski

Kiserlovski,Arredondo(not in the break  13 ),Aru,Evans,Pozzovivo,Majka,Kelderman,Ulissi,Romero

Hopefully that'll carry me through to the flat stage 17 with 8 transfers although Uran in for Evans may happen at some stage in between now and then if Cuddles falls off the planet.

Hmm, where is Pirazzi when I need him?

I was thinking about Pirazzi but wasn't worth the risk. No Arredondo either.

Phil, have you got Roche? If the break stays away he's surely the favourite. I was thinking about bringing in Monsalve but didn't do it.

I'm all GC as I'm near the top and it's not worth taking risks yet.

Evans
Uran (I'll get about 200 if he wins the damn race!)
Ulissi (in for Aru)
Kelderman
Majka
Pozzovivo (in for Bouhanni)
Arredondo
Bandiera
Fedi

Last two were more for yesterday. Will have to change my cheap riders eventually.

Have Roche in my purist (which also included Martin And Kittel, so counts for nothing)
Only Cataldo in the break.

Transferred out Cataldo after the TT when he didn't do as well as I'd hoped but he does prefer a flatter TT. He's not a GC rider after all. Suitsou might do something in one of the mountain finishes. After all he won a stage last year.

Surprised you don't have Roche today. It has mountain breakaway written all over it. Surprised Rolland or Hesjedal didn't try something. Maybe they're leaving it for later.

Just need my man Uran to win it (the whole shebang) and Hesjedal to do a De Gendt.

Just heard Suitsou abandoned after the crash.

Want Roche to win today. He only wins when I leave him out. So just trying to help.

Those potholes look like bad news!

Too many crashes in this race. Definitely prefer the Tour.

I ditched Evans, have 5 of the top GC guys plus Rolland and Arredondo and two cheapsters that aren't in the break. I'm just enjoying watching the race now and if I have a good stage its a bonus. Go Wilco!

Ditto. Would like Roche to win with everyone else caught and good points for the GC.

Damn! I knew Monsalve was interested in the MP competition a long time ago.

Well, the break doesn't have a massive advantage so it could all come back together for a battle between Wilco and Ulissi.

Monsalve and Wellens are quite expensive although I could have just afforded Monsalve. I read quite a long time ago he was interested in the MP comp but wanted to make two other changes and didn't want to take any penalties at this stage of the race.

Dammit! I'm sure I swapped out Nizzolo and Pichon for Aru and Poels, but I must have forgotten to press the confirm button.  14

Better hope the break makes it...

Hesjedal and Rolland out there as I expected. They are the favourites now as Timmer is no climber. Does he have enough time?

Come on Hesjedal!!! (Got money on him for podium at 66-1)

Looks like I shouldn't have swapped Aru for Ulissi.

Low scoring day! Ulissi for Aru won't make much difference.

Not a bad day for Uran. The gaps were small. Only a couple of seconds to Evans. But Quintana is getting better so I might have to make some changes for next week. Tomorrow is a bit different.

I wish Battaglin had done that about a week and a half ago.
