So who have you brought in and got rid of?

My 1st was an easy pick Quinziato out Sabatini in, no loss if he dont keep last tomorrow cause my sprinter was doing nothing anyways, keeping my breaking DS quiet tho

Good to hear you've gotten rid of Quinziato, I've kept him in as there was potential for greater rewards with a different switch. I kept Amador too so hopefully he'll be effed after today and get back into last, or perhaps Sabatini won't make time cut. Anyway I would have gotten rid but I was 0.2 credits short for my preferred exchange so had to sack Thomas instead. Not very happy about that but there you go!

Got Sabatini in - didn't have much of an option as I needed to release funds tied up with Thor.

The other transfer was Frank in for Luis Leon.

Now that I've got both Sabatini & Amador, hope at least one of them stays as LR end of tomorrow  1

Tommy V remains in my squad. Whatever else, the boy's got a lot of heart. And i hear the roads tomorrow are fairly wide. And he only seems to lose time when the finish is downnhill  1

Sabatini's in, too. he picked himself really.

and here's hoping jeremy roy still has his eyes on those polka dots, eh

Well Roy and my other transfer Izagirre (the guy no-one seemed to know before the other day)

They both came home in the train, only because a bus cant fit half the field. ALOT of riders took it easy yesterday, so there could be quite alot of people trying to make a break and i wouldn't past Jelly or Uran to try and go with them

One interesting thing and i dont know if its ever been done or if the UCI would have a hissy fit about it, to me, when it rains and they all put on their water proofs alot of the riders look the same, has anyone tried to cover their bike number and get away in a break?

So take Uran 7.36 down, drop back to the car, stick some EBH yellow shows, "accidentally" a bit of plastic gets "caught" on the bike number, then keep your head down, take off out the front like your EBH, get a decent gap and then reveal yourself robin hood style. Or is it just late and i'm dreaming again?

oooop, I forgot to swap back yesterdays gamble, P Gilbert for Schleck, so I am hoping PG gets in a break. . . it was a bigger gamble than I intended, and a flop so far

I had the same gamble, but HTC didn't let Gilbert go in a break, so it was a really bad choice.

Weather up on the tops is rank - cold and wet (but no snow forecast!) so my money is on the chubbier older dogs of the peloton rather than the stripped down neophytes. A day to choose classics riders who can climb (really really well!).... trouble is, only two swapsies..... hmmm  7
I'm gambling on putting Rojas (cheap) back in for some intermediate sprint action before it all goes skywards. How about a renaissance for Luis Leon Sanchez, - I'm hoping his lurking down in the autobus these last few days was to conserve energy and run some GC time away.....  39 but he might just be knackered ?

Best of luck to you all !

That's VERY early for a GC attack from Andy! He does know there's another climb right???

Damn I wish I could watch this!  20

Frank seems ok, Andy is off up the road and no1 is bothering with him, i think they may have all missed the boat

Unless they think Andy is going up the road as a marker for Frank?

Can you not get it on the tinternet Squiggle? want a live feed link?

Cheers! I'm offshore, the internet is too slow for live streaming (or even watching highlights on Youtube!). Sounds like an awesome stage and an awesome race I'm missing  2

I might have got quite a few points from the Schlek brothers & Voeckler. But nothing matters today... that was just a brilliant stage!

@Gkam84 - Best TdF of recent years yet? Or will you hold your opinion till the end of TT?

Arrrrrrrrrrrrrrrse I had Evans and he would have been just about the same amount of points as Andy today, but the TdF have given Andy the combat prize, what a crock, it should have been Iglinskiy today  14 14 14 14 14 14 14 14

Hahaha, I couldn't transfer Andy out as I didn't have enough transfers, what a shame...

Andy, Frank, Tommy and Vanendert all in my team so a good day but dissapointed with Uran and Riblon. Knew I should have picked up Taaramae.

Stage 60IN:Jelle VANENDERT OUT:Paolo TIRALONGO
Stage 60IN:Cadel EVANS OUT:Andy SCHLECK

thoses are mine for the last two days, so actually could have had more points, but thats because i was planning for today and tomorrow for my points and changed my team around on rest day aiming to do well

If i hadn't change Evans for Schleck and Izagirre for Jeannesson then i would have been top today with 156 points  31
