Interesting choices for this stage. A bit hilly but likely to be a sprint.

Loads of sprinters in the race including some expensive ones.

Cav
Mezgec
Goss
V Popp
Sagan
and many more.

Who are you going for?

Left out Cav, with stage 6 in mind.

Gone for Sagan, Degenkolb, Swift, Kristoff and Modolo

I didn't go Degenkolb because Mezgec was there and wasn't sure if they'd do one each. Same for Kristoff with Porcev.

Have gone with Cav, Sagan, Coquard, Modolo, Lobato and Swift.

If price was no object id have gone Cav over Degenkolb and Coquard over Modolo. (wasnt far off being able to Coquard, was about 1 credit I think) Also have Schurter who can sprint and Breen who may compete. Formolo and Thurau my other 2 riders. Needs to be a good day with -30 points

Thinking Movistar may go Rojas over Lobato. Also could have gone Dillier

I think Lobato has proved himself Movistar's top fast man(still didn't take him though as I had enough for Coquard)

In:Cav,Tommeke,Kristoff,Coquard,Degenkolb

Out:Menace,Wiggo,Rui,Double I,Morabito

Cav
Deg
Tom
Kris
Coq
Tschopp
Kessiakoff
Roy
Fumeaux

Shocking TDS so far....way outside the top 500  40

Ciolek is my worry today.....perhaps I should have picked him ahead of Tommeke?

I have a high strike rate for regretting NOT selecting people this season  21

Yep, Boonen is a strange choice.

Mind you he will probably win now I've said that.

Taking out Mollema, Dennis, Albasini and Chernetskiy worked out exactly to Cav, Degenkolb, Coquard and Modolo. This was too perfect not to trade.

Of course, now Kristoff, Sagan and DVP will podium

I brought in Cav, Sagan, Modolo and Coquard, and kept Mollema. So many sprinters, I just picked the first four I thought of and didn't think too much about it. Looking forward to it, not seen a proper sprint for a while...

There's a distinct absence of Giant riders in there.

What were they doing back there? Did they go for the sprint first time round or can't they count to two?

Unlucky, ive only had 1 stage win this year, you will get one soon enough.

I got 63 in the end so could have been worse. All set though now until the TT. And I think I have a decntish plan in mind, so that I only need the odd penalty for stage 8. (the problem being who to pick for 8 and 9, Mollema my only dead cert), think he will win the overall

Thinking with my team defo Sagan and Swift, Degenkolb should and poss Kristoff can be at the finish for stage 6, but I don't think Cav will and maybe not Labato, so hoping thats where my team pays off. Also think Shurter will do well that stage too.

Having Thurau in for mountains is working well too.

Do you think many sprinters will make it over the high mts on Fri. I am bankin on the climbers getting away and staying away, with maybe only one or two breakaways winning the stage.

Friday? isn't that the ITT? If you mean thursday I I thin Sagan will win it, Swift and Degenkolb should make it, and a decent form Kristoff may too, someone like a Bennati could figure too, Mollema has a decent sprint for a climber, maybe Albasini, or Rui Costa
