Modolo tweeted this morning suggesting he had been told to just sit and not sprint. Silly

Bah Modolo.

Still, would've saved my transfers anyway. Big Andre for the win today, I reckon.

From Wikipedia: Lars Anthonius Johannes Boom (born 30 December 1985) is a professional cyclo-cross and road racing cyclist who was born in Vlijmen, Netherlands

There was only one choice for who to replace Modolo

Van melsen in the break nick, to soften the blow if modolo doesn't score...

Just couldn't make a decision on who to put in which is mainly why I left him in. Even though I knew it was Boom's home town.... At Wits End

2nd and 6th for me too, still not seen 11-20. A day where a lot purist teams will outscore standards I reckon - mine certainly will have.

Transfers done for tomorrow. 20 pens.

No Cancellara, Dowsett, Dennis, or Sergent either.

A calculated risk.

Well if I could find any results of the sprints, I might get the points up.

I have sprint 1 and 2. No 3rd and nothing for the combative sprints......
