Sky have put the big hitters up the road.

Interesting that the break includes VdB and Talansky. And Yates.

This could be very interesting indeed. Are Froome and Contador going to miss out?

This is all very odd indeed and could mean a superb last hour. Roll on coverage!

Just checked the scores and I appear to have won the forum scorums league by a mere 2 points. My best result ever, well chuffed Party

My standard team got a 50 pt kicking from my purists??? I should have just picked 2 purist teams at random and not bothered playing this race. Just been too busy playing with the new electronic timing system for the club and running the timing and scoring for the National Youth Series Omnium round at Aldersley - what larks

Excuses, excuses...my performance in this has just been awful on purist and standard.

You're right - it was more that I'd actually picked a half decent purist team for the first time in my life that surprised me.
