My team for today, spent ages deliberating on this one, which usually means a damp squib in the race. I've found the amount of time I spend sorting my team out is inversely proportional to the results I get.

Philippe Gilbert (BMC)
Niki Terpstra (OPQ)
Sep Vanmarcke (BLK)
Marco Marcato (CAD)
Lars Boom (BLK)
Manuel Quinziato (BMC)
Dylan Van Baarle (GRS)
Tom Dumoulin (GSH)
Geraint Thomas (SKY)

I've not changed Purist.

I very nearly didn't go for Vanmarcke, Fabu instead and I really really wanted to get Keukliere in for today but couldn't do it without incurring penalty points.

Was tempted by Keukeleire but ended up only making one change - Terpstra in for Mezgec. Kept Debusschere on a hunch and he's in the early break according to Twitter, not much of a gap yet though. "Debusschere, Trentin, Lastras and Rovny have 50 secs"

Terpstra
Cancellara
Dumoulin
Boom
Thomas
Gilbert
Debusschere
Jans
Van Melsen

Looks like I'm cheering on Spartacus today based on the teams revealed so far!

Will be interesting to see. Those on my want list last night were Phil G, Fabu, Boonen, Trentin, Vanmarcke, Keukeleire and GVA. And ended up with Phil G, Vanmarcke and filler Marcato. I must have spent 2 hours in and out with these riders.

5 in the top 10 for me too, plus Cancellara and Debusschere. 3 transfers for tomorrow, have to decide whether to drop Cancellara or Terpstra to get the funds in for the riders I want...

The question is, do you have any idea of the riders you want for tomorrow???

He's been in the team since Monday in expectation of his sprinting and prologue time trialling.

Thanks Tom, thanks. You can do one tomorrow.

I thought I saw an Orica finish near the top yet Keukeleire is not in the top 10

My problem is getting rid of cancellara and boonen means I have too many spare points
