Let's have a sweepstake - how many times will Phil 'n' Paul use the expression 'a sting in the tail' to describe today's stage?

I've put all my eggs in two baskets today; my big potential mistakes will be to have left out Degenkolb and GVA, both of whom will fancy this. I just hope my guys fancy it more!

BTW, I think the budget has been perfect for this tour  4

No sprinters for me, just taking the GC points and concentrating on the last 2 stages. A nice random breakaway going all the way would be nice...

Gone for a sprint

Kristoff, Kittell, Coqurad and Renshaw in (maybe I should have looked closer at the profile but didn't really have the time)

I made 3 changes and have gone for the stronger climbing sprinters ie Sagan, Coquard and Benatti. No idea why.

Continuing my streak of betting and ruining their chances my money was on Sagan today. Oops!

Don't think I will end up too bad today with 3,4,16,18 + Taaramae, along with Kittel and Coquard, Peraud and Nibs. Another full house I guess.

Kittel should have 1 point, not 0

Years from now, no one is going to remember Giovanni Visconti's 2014 Tour de France, but he sure has racked up some points.
