I had Van Staeyen in for the last couple of days but took him out at midnight and replaced him with Dillier in the interests of saving 20 pens for stage 3/4

You're just looking for ways to entertain yourself... aren't you?... I have to applaud your creativity in the face of your disinterest in men's pro cycling this year... How's your interest in women's pro cycling?  39 ... Has it waned any or is your exuberance still there?...  39

I understand that... I hope it works out for you... It sucks though...  45 I hate choosing like this... I think I chose the wrong one of out of all of those pairings...

Looks like the wind blew, I didn't see it, but it was pretty chaotic apparently. I had missed the phrase "Crash involving Goss" on twitter recently, so it was reassuring to see it crop up again today...

Everyone picked Guardini, right?

Annoyingly, stupidly, I dropped Dumoulin (why?) and Boy van Poppel from my purist. I don't know what goes through my head sometimes. No Dowsett either.

Think Modolo was LR, a crumb of comfort for those of is who picked him.

1,4,10,11,12,17 is better than you'd expect from a messy day like today, so I'm happy. And Boom seems to be 5th on GC for some reason (intermediate bonus seconds?) so that's a few more points too.

Cancellara lost 18 seconds, but none of the other main GC contenders seemed to lose any time.

Scores will be up soon, struggling to find the sprints results but found them now.

Just figuring out if I should take in the combative sprints into the points.....

If there is no mountain jersey (as there is only one mountain, and it's on stage 7) are we going to rate the jerseys for both points and sprints comp?

The points and sprints are a combined jersey in Eneco

There is also a separate combative sprint jersey

Not that it makes any difference, but I scored both sprint types last year, 6,4,2

I loaded the bookends as a badge. I guess Dave changed them  24

As for the scores, they are going up. F**K knows how the tour have worked out the GC, because it doesn't relate to first home, not bonus seconds for winning some sprints.

Holy macaroni - went and got a high roller badge AND a stage top ten! All without really trying.

No changes for tomorrow.

Gkam,
I'm struggling as usual to work out points in the Eneco. I think in stage 1 there are 3 sprint and 2 combativity points, each scoring 6,4,2 road.cc points. And you are only scoring 5,4,3,2,1 for overall position in points jersey (not combativity).
Could you confirm this?
Thanks

Wow, 7th on the stage (although I won this stage last year!) is a nice surprise after losing an epic 10-8 darts match. What with Poland as well, my FS standing will have markedly improved this month...

Tony. Eneco are only reporting 2 sprints and 2 combative sprints. But the stage does show 3 sprints. Both of which I have scored 6,4,2 and then the points jersey is 5,4,3,2,1 and leader of the combative gets 10.

So if Kenneth Van Bilsen retains the Combativity Classification lead tomorrow he gets another 10 points tomorrow?...  39 I think I'd treat it as another jersey and give out another set of 5,4,3,2 and 1 points rather than 10 points to the leader of that Classification... No other Classification leader gets 10 points unless they're the GC leader...  45 Maybe you should figure out who got the most Combativity points that day and award 10 points to the rider who got the most Combativity Points in that one stage, but if you're going to award points to the leader of the Classification, I'd do it the 5,4,3,2,1 way...

Gkam,
Thanks for the clarification. As I understand it, the middle sprint went Smukulis, De Vreese, Van Bilsen, and you can see this from the times of the GC standings; ie De Vreese is at .05 and Van Bilsen at .08 (sprints are 3,2,1 bonus seconds).
Doesn't the Eneco organisation realise we have a serious competition running here and need good info.
When you said "leader of the combative gets 10", did you mean, on that stage, not the overall progressive leader. (see enrique's question/comment).
And thanks for doing a great job; you must get sick of this constant questioning; but we need to know the rules to maximise our play.
Regards
