Yesterday only 8% of teams had Nizzolo... I bet a lot of us brought him in for today... What a waste of a transfer...  45

Froome
Nibs
Bertie
Berhane
Vorobyev

Jungels
Intxausti
Demare

Giacomo Nizzolo (Trek), who has pulled out, Leigh Howard (Orica) who didn't make it back to the bunch after the crash and Thor Hushovd (BMC) who has been dropped at the bottom of the côte de Lavet, are no longer in contention, shall the race end up with a bunch sprint.

Glad I went light on the sprinters today...just Demare and Roelandts for me.

However, as the break is so poor FDJ have stopped chasing and the dropped riders may catch up, so as to frustrate us with their poor showings in the end sprint

Wanted Demare so was short on funds for another sprinter, went with Thwaites who came 17th! Get in.

Also got 20 points from Benedetti so 76 made me 100th on the stage...

Ummed and ahhed about Arndt, but didn't include him...  102

Still, had Boekmans, Berhane and Demare who mitigated somewhat the 40 point penalty hit. Also backed R. Janse Van Rensburg at 125/1 each way! Just £1.50, but still, tidy wee profit  4

Nice. I've just put a fiver on Gerrans for tomorrow so that will ensure he doesn't get past half way.

A week is too short a competition to try and make up ground with this budget and these amounts of transfers... I say bring back the high budgets and let us have 3 free transfers a day for week long stage races  3 It might mitigate the sense of dread when I fall so far behind...  45 4
