Transfers
Frank out: Martin In
Vanendert out: Roy In

Based on the CD when cadel wasnt injured id have to back cadel to take yellow unless Schleck rides really well

so im gonna back cadel for top 10 and taaramae for top 20, but a normally bad time trialist to bag a top 10 slot.
Thomas to come close, so top 5 maybe

Also be aware of danielson, i reckon he could end in the top 10 as well

As for the win martin to pip fabian due to experience from the wet dauphine TT, with EBH in 3rd

I took in Cancellara for Voeckler, but has to take Sanatini out and stick my old friend Hans D in

I think FC will win because Martin has been giving in some effort up the mountains where as FC has been in the "container ship" (the bus, but it went to train and even thats to small now)  4

I think Evans and the Schlecks will be close, between those 3 it will be Evans, Andy, Frank, but Andy keeping a tiny lead

Top 3 tomorrow

FC
Martin
Contador
Evans
Hushovd (if he can be bothered) if not EBH

IN:Fabian CANCELLARA OUT:Frank SCHLECK
IN:Adriano MALORI OUT:Pierre ROLLAND

Brought in Malori purely because I needed some cash for Sunday's transfers and he seemed the best bet in those I could afford.

I agree with Gkam here, believe Spartacus will beat the Panzerwagen tomorrow.

Split about Sunday - should I spend all the money on Cav or spread the bets with Rojas and another rider who'll get a few points.

Right, you've both taken out Frank, who is your other AR??

I've kept frank with the money i swap for FC i can get Cav or Rojas, but will decide that tomorrow after i see the TT times, I dont know how Rojas TT's but is it beyond the realms of top 20? could he get some points, all i know is that 8 years ago he was under 17 tt champion

I've kept frank, but only because i didn't have three transfers to play with  1

Spartacus in of course, and Geraint's back in the squad. Tommy V had to go, sadly. But what a legend.

Is noone expecting anything of David Millar? I think he was last man over line yesterday not far behind Cancellara so he might be relatively fresh.

Based on expectation, I wanted David Millar, Tony Martin, EBH, Thomas and a few others.

Based on credits, I got Fabian  22

da costa wont finish in the top 20 either, although malori could scrape a couple of points for me  1 or the spot prize for 21st

I think all of us who went for Cancellara have made a HUGE mistake

Porte just beat him EBH faster at 1st check

He was riding to show the lines to the Schlecks who were in the car behind  14 14
