Gone for

Bardet
Pinot
Gallopin

Gerrans
Degenkolb
Voeckler
Visconti

Peter Sagan (CAD)
Vincenzo Nibali (AST)
Daniele Bennati (TSB)
Matteo Trentin (OPQ)

Cheng Ji last man home for the second time. He is the only person scoring for my purists.

I didn't make any changes today ready for mountains tomorrow

Brought gallopin in thinking he'll finish in the bunch and I'll get my full house badge Big Grin

Nope he rolls in over 5mins down At Wits End

I left him in, but when a poor day only drops me down 10 places to 47th, ive got to take that. 4 changes made and hoping for a strong day tomorrow

I went for JD and very nearly for Greipel. Glad I didn't.

A poor day made average by Florian Vachon deciding to get in the break and score some points. And I was *this* close to swapping him out for Visconti!

Four changes for tomorrow, all the obvious picks. I reckon there are a three or four guys outside of GC contention that could well go for a stage win tomorrow, but I'm playing it safe (and hopefully won't have to make any changes for Alps pt. 2 either).

Had Degenkolb, but his sprint got ruined by Trentin... by the way, Trentin was relegated, so does he get to keep his points?

Riblon's a bit 'icky so I hear....at least as bad as Costa.......one of the transitional stages for him methinks?

Mt transfers are becoming 'comedy gold'.......don't think anyone could argue with the sense of bringing in Degenkolb and Coquard....until you see I took out Albasini who subsequently breezed in 4th!!
