That team will work well tomorrow if all goes Pete Tong today.

My team is totally reliant on the hilly sprinters getting over those big peaks. Hopefully Sagan and Swift can repeat past form and do it. Hopefully the other sprinters won't.

Put Guardini in as he was cheap, and really for stages 4 and 5.

To be honest it was only because I couldn't afford him that I didn't get Pozzovivo in so I ended up taking out Panzerwagon for 'The Menace' and banking a transfer.

The profile suggested sprint or breakaway and that's what happened.

Scores will be in at some point.

I have all the results, just in discussions with boss man about the points situation.

It seems the information that I used to format the scoring was based on last year. This year, they have pulled ALL the intermediate sprints and the sprints jersey.

The only points being handed out are for the first across the line. Which are never scored on a daily basis in any tour.

There is still a points competition which has been taken into account with transfers and team picks so far so it would be totally wrong to change this. And very unfair.

There was going to be NO scoring for the points jersey anyway

That's ridiculous. There is a points jersey so points should be awarded. There is no youth jersey so no points. You can't just remove things two stages in after people have picked teams

Points are awarded for the standings at the end of the stage. It says in the rules. Changing it now is totally wrong!!!!!!

If you read the stage info...you will see the points jersey was NEVER going to be scored.

Sprint points
6, 4, 2 points for the first three riders on any intermediate sprint
Sprints jersey
The sprints jersey competition overall will be scored as the points competition jersey.

The points weren't scored for stage 1 either

And where does it say it's being scored only on sprint points? This is ridiculous. Jersey points is what it says.

NO it says that the sprints jersey would be scored, not the points jersey. The points jersey was NEVER going to be scored in this tour and because there is no sprints jersey.

There will be no sprints points given out.

Not going to argue it any more. The points competition was never going to be scored, so will not be scored. There is no sprints competition, so unfortunately, that cannot be scored either
