Motivation is the key. Either they need to be up there in GC or a specialist TTer this late in the race.

And Cancellara finishes in 32:18.380 I think he could be sitting in the hot seat for quite some time.

So it seems that others know something I don't about Dennis (or the bookies, for that matter) - anyone know whats up with him at the mo?

Mollema and Kreuziger doing craply Both will be lucky to scrape the top 20. Glad I transferred them in today

1,2,4,13. I'm so glad I took a penalty to bring in Dowsett and/or Mollema Sick Sad
At least my other 3 transfers got me the 1,2,4.

Yep, Dowsett and Mollema didn't perform for me. Rubbish.

1,2,4,8,13 + Thurau and Hollenstein gave me 19th on the stage which in the end wasn't too bad. Only Mollema let me down slightly
