Tracker experiencing some slight problems with rider ID - they're showing the right numbers in the break, but the wrong names; I suspect last year's rider numbers are still in the system. I was surprised to see Bauke Mollema in the break, but the commentary has the right names.

I think they don't even have the right teams. Raised Eyebrow Whatever I'm screwed took out cav because he wasn't that high overall now, if the tracker's correct, one of my riders is almost last freaking place. Surprise Surprise But hey if he drops back a couple more minutes hello Laterne Rouge. Plain Face Yeah, that's not gonna happen. I'm screwed i'm screwed i'm screwed. Crying Crying

69 points better than I thought, carried on with my game plan in spite of everything. Cavendish is gone, no way hell make these climbs tomorrow, especially as Goss is gone. we'll know if HTC have thrown in the towel on stage 4 if sivstov is crap too.

I'm 157th!!! Think that's the highest I've ever been. Thanks Sutton Sagan and Kittel. But don't worry. It won't last.
