I was hoping to bring in Hushovd for Matysiak but was 0.6 credits short, so left as-is, with 7 transfers for tomorrow if needed. Had a couple of quid e/w on Thor instead. This was the stage where Phinney did that incredible ride last year to hold off the pack, as I recall it wasn't hilly enough to eliminate many of the sprinters, but it's not as straightforward as yesterday. Not really a Bos stage, but I gave him the benefit of the doubt based on yesterday.

Vakoc
Maikin
Mezgec
Bos
Lobato
Hutarovich
Matthews
Matysiak
Ignatenko

I reckon 3,4,5 will put you ahead of a lot of people there Nick - all six of my sprinters were top 20 but only 3 and 5 out of the top 10. Still, with Vakoc getting 10-15 that should still be OK. Big decisions now - what on earth is going to happen tomorrow?! No real clues in four days about who might be targeting GC (apart from Majka of course).

TER on lates today?

Never mind, everyone else in the top 20 had Mezgec except me and we all know no-one made any transfers, so I'm going downhill

Thanks TER. Updating the game still, hopefully will be done soon! I've so definitely picked the correct 7 riders out of the 58 potential stage winners tomorrow.

Like lighting up at a bus-stop, I knew that would work. 18 pts off the lead, I hope one of my random banjos in the dark for tomorrow hits the cow's arse...

But I did have Matthews, Maes, Maikin and Vakoc so your chances of taking London from me took another blow today  19 *

My team for tomorrow is very random but should work for 2 stages and then 5 for the TT.

Likely.

It appears most of the top teams have used a few transfers. I didn't make any until today so hopefully can pull back a little bit tomorrow.

I've put seven in tomorrow with 2 pens.

You can only see the transfers after the deadline.....by clicking on the team name(not the players name) within your leagues and then clicking on transfers(you can also see palmares,stage scores etc).

For example I can see that you used 2 transfers for stage 2,1 for stage 3 and none for stage 4 leaving 5transfersfor today stage 5.
