Taaramae has one mountain point today - and now I have a full house!

Barring a major belly-up, Majka, Jrod, Tommy V, Nibbles, Pinot, Bardet, King Leopold and Peraud will all score GC or mountain points today

At this rate Tommy V might not score today!? Sick which would be another missed full house for me Plain Face

1,2,3,4,7,11,12 for me today plus J-Rod and Konig. Probably Konig won't score and so my full house goes!

Also full house, which I really didn't think I'd get. Been short on badges this Tour, despite rattling around the top 50 in the overall. Maybe I should pick Cheng Ji to get that elusive LR/bookends badge...

No Majka today though. 2,3,4,10,11,12,13 plus classification points for Tommy V & Konig. Resisting changes tomorrow, banking them for the flat.

Careful with your points predictions.....summit finish so the KOM pts for the last climb won't count?

Nice one Debbie. At last a decent stage for me. Got 4 transfers to play with though too which is nice. 3 points off my 2k so realistically I should get that tomorrow!

I was thinking this too! Amazing to me that so many picked him...colour me green I guess

Edit....just checked and he's a 3.3 value rider....that's why so many had him - cheap filler!

He's the only cheap filler who has been in my team from the start. The others have gone, on the hope that he would do something on one stage.

I have Visconti in my purist team. Wasn't put in as a filler because I had plenty of budget, I was banking on today, but I thought he might have done another one earlier in the tour

Took cheap filler Visconti out to add a cheap GC rider. Visconti scores huge. Facepalm.
