Right, i'm just in the door, been out on the bike n got caught in a thunder storm, so took shelter for a while

What happened to Brajkovic? i just saw him being put into an ambulance, saw Contador crash, seems like a bad day

Ah ha, they fooled me, Martin leading Goss, Goss sits up and i thought HTC had fecked it again, looks like a sneaky "you follow our dummy train" and Cav comes through and wins

So 2nd, 10th, 12th for me today, i switched out Tony Martin for Millar, so quite happy he stayed outta trouble, but with Cav winning its only an extra 2 points

Gilbert got a bucket load today with his points  4

Its still showing Jerome in last which is good, Boonen came home 13 mins down, but i think he's done some major damage and will not be in tomorrow

Boonen looked in a bad way. Christophe Kern abandoned as well as Brajkovic.

That was one hell of a finish.

No, Feillu :(. At least he picked up a few points at the intermediate sprint.

good stage that. I particularly enjoy the info nuggets from the itv commentary team, as well as the usual chateau-facts we also got cow-facts, oyster-facts and migratory-bird-facts. Something for everyone there.

I think i should maybe start watching them, but i dont like the team, is it still them who used to do the channel 4 coverage years again? Phil Harmason or something like that

Phil Liggett and some other fella.. I forget. As well as the commentary, we are treated to the sagely words of Chris Boardman delivered via his programme sandwiching adverts. Apparently "Racing is not an activity - it's a mindset".

I'm going to try this next week and see if I can think my way round the cx course rather than pedal.

I swapped out Gilbert for Feillu too, really bad decision  2

Time to start swapping riders out for the mountains yet?

There was a moment when I was regretting swapping Voeckler for Millar.

Good stage to watch I thought, I get in at 3.30 and it's the first weekday one that I haven't fast-forwarded through vast chunks on Sky+.

So did I! At least I've got the points to get him back in or do I go now for Cadel, which was my plan.

He'd have won it if the stage had been 500m shorter  1
