Somehow I need to stop missing the trade deadlines!!! No Martin or dumoulin for me
10 pens, hoping to consolidate my position (386th) much better than last year
Top5 on GC plus some guesswork basically. Could be good, but a lot of good TTers omitted (Dumoulin, Barta, Thomas, Chavanel, Kwiat, Rogers, Boom etc) so just went with my gut. No pens, but no transfers carrying over for tomorrow so could do with a good day today...
Tony Martin (OPQ)
Bryan Coquard (EUC)
Thibaut Pinot (FDJ)
Vincenzo Nibali (AST)
Tom Dumoulin (GSH)
Ion Izaguirre (MOV)
Luke Durbridge (OGE)
Tejay Van Garderen (BMC)
Jean-Christophe Peraud (ALM)
Martin(This must be as close to a guaranteed skinsuit badge as it gets) and Tejay(most motivated of the 2nd tier guys along with Peraud who I've already got)
to go with
Nibali-people have dismissed him for the ITT but I say top10
Roy 'The Boy'
Renshaw and Kristoff out
Danny Pate is the fastest of the early runners.....faster than Durbo and Tuft which is a bit of a turn-up for the books?
Poor from Durbridge. I was going to go for Barta but went for Durbo instead.
Ist and 10th so far.
1,2,12 so far
Why do I always let my heart rule my head.....thought `G` and Rogers would of rode today, especially `G` in trying to rescue something for Sky....
1,2,4,5,6,7,13 that'll do
123467 and Majka, who can do better. Was expecting more from Kyrienka as well, but Sky have been rubbish. No fight left! They should have gone for Nieve as their second choice GC, maybe he'll get a chance in La Vuelta if Froome isn't fit. He could top 10 with support.
1/4/7/12/19 not good enough.
Disappointed, just 1,4,6,7,12 for me. Should have gone Dumoulin not Valverde.
23 on stage for me seem to be having a late peek in form!
Konig single-handedly dragging me back into contention in my mini-league. Exciting stuff from him, bright future for sure.
Panzerwagon good for my podium cafe fsa ds team
