Tom Boonen has just gotten into the team car and retired

Anyone got a guy in the break? i took in 2 FDJ riders last night knowing full well they would put someone in the break, only they decided to not use my tip and put 2 others in the break and Euskaltel also ignored me and put the other Perez up there  19

Wiggo out, Horner & Pauriol doubtful, Farrar delayed. That was one crazy crash.

Levi was in that crash aswell

The sprint, Renshaw was a bit cheeky there moving over a little on Gilbert, but he's not a point behind Rojas in the Green, so hope he beats him at the finish  19

I had a shocking day, some guys caught in the crash, i think my superstar climbing DS may be out, my team is up sh*t creek

I did like Cav's reaction when told about Wiggo, OH SHIT  4

Not picking Delage y'day cost me first set of points and then the split caused by that crash cost me the second set.

Now to plan for the hills.

Dave, can I bring forward a transfer from the 4 available later on? I could really do with 3 tomorrow  1

As Bernie Eisel, there is no respect in the peloton in this tour and people and pushing and shoving and shouting at others

I think thats got something to do with all these crashes and hold ups, teams are just being dangerous when there is no need

Ok, i can go tell everyone now cause he's out Remi Pauriol was going to be my superstar climbing DS, after winning the polka dot in Paris-Nice and the tour of the Med this year

But he went down with Wiggo and others in that crash and has now withdrawn  20

Turns out it wasn't so bad a stage for me. Only 87 points but that's probably the first time I'm in a stage's top 100.

Galim did eventually get those 15 points. Swapping Popo for Delage instead of Pate would've helped with another 6.

Never mind, now for the hills.

After having him in since the start Turgot finally decided to contest a sprint, rounded out a decent stage but I've now got some big changes to try and make. Does anyone think Hushovd will keep yellow after tomorrow or will Evans take it.

I'm not even sure Evans will be in it, but Hushovd wont be up that hill

I wouldn't bank on Horner starting tomorrow either, Broken nose and Concussion for him

I know its not nice to see the crashes and i hope everyone is ok, but its making the pick of a GC alot easier every day another drops out  19

Been thinking of Radioshack. Seems the race has sorted their GC contender for them.

Of the 4 contenders for GC they started with:

1. Brajkovic is out.
2. Horner is down and might as well go out tomorrow.
3. Levi is down by almost 4.5 mins and not looking in good shape.

If there were points to be earned for guessing the leading team, this is where I'd swap RS for Leopard Trek.
