ok more bad choices looking ahead to the 4 transfers, but forgetting the 2 stages that sprinter may win on Tue/Wed So

Kloden
Hinault
Moncoutie
Gilbert
Hoogerland
Fofonov
jerome
Popovich
Thomas

Not good enough

My predictions.

Van garderen takes all the mountain points istead of Hoog. Hushovd holds on to yellow. None of the GC guys bother, Millar, Voekleur, Vino, Hoogerland, Casar, Gerrans get away. I get my lowest points score.

Evans
Hushovd
Mollema
Arroyo
Gusev
Galimzyanov
Jerome
Ruben Perez
Taaramae

I cant see Hushovd holding yellow today at all, but will be delighted if he does

I was toying with Casar but decided to keep him for another day when i think he'll go for a break

Hoping for Arroyo or Mollema to get into the break away cause it might just be let a win again

Vino might go, but i took him out, Hoogerland is a good shout for a break as i think he'll want the polka dots back, Miller will be trying to keep Hushovd up there, as soon as he blows then Miller will just stick with the GC guys for as long as possible, I think at some point today, Contador will test the legs of the Schlecks

Had a cappocino and had a look at the classement. I t could be if any of this lot get away, the gc guys will let them, and then neutralise the time gaps, with a little bit of testing of each other.
Inference from Vinos interview in L'Equipe is that he will go again today.

There's what you might call a 'super breakaway' group of six riders with just over three minutes on the peloton after 60km. Four past stage winners - Flecha, LL Sanchez, Casar and Voeckler (virtual maillot jaune). The other two aren't slouches either - Hoogerland (looking to get polka dot jersey back?) and Terpstra.

Txurruka taken to hospital after a crash  2

Brutt and Poels have abandoned. Gesink sounds like he's having a bad day too.

Can't see Coyot (Saur-Sojasun) lasting the day either - apparently he's just hurled at the back of the peloton. Hope no-one on his wheel.

Anyone doing the Acte II Etape that follows the route of today's stage? Everyone said it would be a cakewalk compared to Acte I. Hmmm.

My super transfer for today's stage: Kicked out Voeckler and after considering Flecha & Hoogerland, brought in Chavanel.

Could I have done any worse?!

Depends on how you look at it, if he was half on tarmac and half on the grass and slammed on the brakes there's a chance he would have spun into them anyway. Still shouldn't have happened  7

There's no depends on how you look at it at all

The car should either hit the tree or brake, even better still dont go overtaking at a stupid place

But you dont just swerve at riders, i hope he gets chucked off the tour and also taken to court for that kinda driving, cause that could have easy gone another way and killed someone

johhny been swallowed by the peleton. crap crap crap. This tdf is crazy, and I think it will be a watershed.

points wise looks like my predictions will be correct.

watch me dive down the rankings.

I'm not saying what he did was right, but it's been proven that drivers make a subconscious decision to go for the softer object, and sadly in this case it was the rider.

But yeah I don't see how they can keep the driver in the tour, especially after the motorbike rider trying to overtake the peleton caused a crash and got kicked off.

Just one of those things, bet the driver wished he hit the tree now.

Hoogerland and Flecha out the back of the peloton now

I wish the break sat up, looks like Voeckler will be in yellow  20

Also Hoogerland looks like he's just escaped a jap prison camp and been getting the death of a thousand cuts

Jeeeeezzzzuuusss!  31 I feel guilty sitting here thinking about points watching this unfold. Thankfully both riders are fit enough to continue.

That car driver obviously didn't pick Flecha or Hoogerland!
