Have I seriously misread this stage... I have just been in the bookies and they have Sagan as a clear favourite at 4/1.... @confused.com

That downhill section at the end says Nibs turns the tables on Bertie for yesterday's little gap.....and is probably why the bookies have Sagan so strong in the market whether he joins the break or waits for it all to come back together?

This is a proper 'LuLu' day if he were here?

And as if by magic......

And the first to take off is -- Peter Sagan! The Cannondale rider shoots away after 2 km. Guess he is eager to finally get his first stage win this year!

Cannot see a Sagan win on this stage.... He looked knackered on the climbs yesterday..

I agree - but he was bookie's favourite across the board.

No changes for me today, I don't like playing 'guess the breakaway' (though I did put a small wager on Spilak, who is not in my squad). Saving them for tomorrow, which should be more predictable.

Feillu looks lively but I imagine a few non-GC teams will have targeted today's stage as winnable. Orica in particular need a win, maybe Albasini will provide it?

Another bad day for me coming. I think.
Europcar are going for today instead of tomorrow according to their team talk.

I took out Haussler and Sagan too. Then cannondale put a man up the road possibly for Sagan.
Oh well

Well I've screwed up my transfers for tomorrow. Made 3 and then pressed confirm, then realised that I hadn't got Bertie in. Would cost me 20 penalty points to put him in now. Grrrrr.

Good thing nobody in GC contention in the league that really matters to me had Martin. A Christophe Riblon on Alpe d'Huez-esque day in terms of fantasy points.

Yep, should have 2. People too busy watching World Cup to bother changing it.
