Borut Bozic
Oscar Freire
Peter Sagan
Tejay Van Gerderen
Jose Rojas
Marco Marcato
Anthony Ravard
Linus Gerdemann
Greg Van Avermaet
Ban Swift

Thats the top ten for the stage

Top ten for the GC looks like this

Damiano Cunego 12.29.23
Juan Mauricio Soler 54sec
Bauke Mollema 1.16
Laurens Ten Dam 1.19
Tejay Van Garderen 1.21
Frank Schleck 1.25
Jakob Fuglsang 1.32
Danilo Di Luca 1.53
Steven Kruijswijk 2.00
Levi Leipheimer 2.10

So i thought i'd take Garderen out and put Cunego in, could of been a mistake today  2

But i think looking at it, i could have done alright got 8th with Linus and then hopefully another few in the 11-20,, still got 4 guys high in the GC

Another thing, i think people have now worked out how to kill Cav off, at last, i'm not a fan of his

So they start the lead out, go up to Cav, get slightly in front and give him a nudge off the wheel and everyone else with a sprinter will help box him in, love it  19

The Manx Mouth finally gagged eh? My broadband died for no apparent reason 4km out, and started working again right after the finish, which was bloody annoying. Also I didn't do terribly well  7 Got Cunego and Mollema for GC, plus Kruijswijk for a point here or there. Just had a look at the intermediates on cyclingnews and got nothing there either  2

I *thought* I had Bozic, but that was before the team was reset the other day. Have Van Avermaet instead, so swings and roundabouts...

Only 50 points today, slowing up for you thefatcyclist

Now lets see some proper hills again, not these stages that were supposed to be perfect for Cav and Cancellara, well that failed, lol  19

When I first heard that today and yesterday were sprinters' stages, I did wonder where they'd found in Switzerland that was flat.

Maybe Cavendish is saving himself for tomorrows stage . . I think I'll keep him in the squad, just in case  7 . . .  4 4

Only 50 odd points a what might have been day, never mind, saved myself for the hills to come. As did Eisel and weening, by the looks at the standings.

How do I have the feeling I should have put Tschopp in for tomorrow. Why? Tschopp/Franks/ both Swiss, both BMC.
Both good climbers.Sylvan will be in a breakaway.

Quite happy with that, but i want to see Cunego, Mollema, Kruijswijk, Frank Schleck and some guy called Alberto ALGUACIL LOSADA

That would do be for a top 5, lol

I couldn't afford Frank, by 0.1 credits. It's times like that where it's tempting to just nip into the database and award yourself a bonus  1

Soler FTW, I reckon*

Well, if Frank doesn't sleep well, maybe another leopard?

Also, isn't it true that if loads of people pick him, his value will go up...  39

dont need any breakaway advice for tomorrow its burghardt without a doubt, and last year he made it work --twice! Im stuck with cav too but no point changing as none of other sprinters will get points anyway.
