Hoping for a bit more of a straight forward sprint today
No changes hoping modolo is ok and has a go today?
Modolo tweeted this morning suggesting he had been told to just sit and not sprint.
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....
Modolo won't be scoring, he jumped off today
1. Stybar (OPQ)
2. Boom (BEL)
3. Vanmarcke (BEL)
4. Marcato (CAN)
5. Quinziato (BMC)
6. Jans (WGG)
2nd & 6th for me.
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.
Yep, it could be a Purist team winning this competition!

Transfers done for tomorrow. 20 pens.
No Cancellara, Dowsett, Dennis, or Sergent either.
A calculated risk.
Surely Gee will move up the standings tomorrow?
the only points I'll get today are from van melsen
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......
Got this from cyclingnews, if that helps.

Just 6 and 7 standard
Decent for purist though, 1,2,6, and last man
