I dont trust the official site anymore cause they cant even get the standing right, so sticking to this

Lastras, Chavanel, Irizar, Pidgornyy, Edet are your break away men today currently with 3 mins  4

im guessing that smile means you have someone in the break. Its the new time bonuses that messed up the GC i think

Nope unfortunately i dont have any of them, i aint changed since day one so all my guys are the same

New time bonuses?? I thought they were just the normal, its maybe cause the TdF took theirs out

ahhh right me neither, im sort of half and half now for 2day and 2morrow i think.

Yeh the article i read suggested the time bonuses are different or that they didnt have them last year. Its 20 seconds for 1st, 12 for 2nd and 8 for 3rd.

Nice im along way behind you on posts

Oh yeah, not sure about the time bonuses then, not been paying attention, just hoping Cav can hold in and win today, i'm thinking about just hanging in the pursuits league for the whole thing and see if i cant win something  4

ahhh right, fair enough, good plan you may well win it, i find if i was in the purists league i would get bored as i like making the transfers etc, i got rid of cav so from a fantasy point of view i hope he rides to try and get degenkolb in red again.

I don't think there are any prizes for each GT in the purists league are there? I was under the impression it was just for the year long purist comp and even then I don't actually know what the prize is (if anything).

I thought there was for the GT's  39

Now i'll wait for clarification cause i think i've got an overall decent team, in the pursuits can you switch on rest days?  7

Nope, you can only make changes in 'unlimited' transfer windows so you can't make any changes at all through the Vuelta. I have a purist team and actually quite enjoy it, it's tough though to predict who's going to hit form in each tour two or three weeks ahead, any it's really annoying if you miss someone you really wish you'd added to your team like this time with Kittel  2

Oh yeah and he's got the KoM and maybe even the points? although that might go to Chavanel

I wonder who everyone will be transferring in tonight  19

I've got a feeling Lastras might take all three jerseys, seeing as this is classed as a 'flat' stage in the parcours, and he got some sprint points and a mountaintop win today.

4 in the top 20 stage and the win
2 in the top 10 GC
plus the extra's for intermediate and climbs plus all the jersey's

I'm glad i kept faith in my team and haven't made a change since the start of the race  4

Just in from work, haven't got a clue what happened, but I presume a breakaway stayed away.

Yeah a break stayed away with Lastras breaking from them over the climb and staying away by 15sec  4

Chavanel, Irizar and Pidgornyy also stayed away with half the peleton coming in 1.43 down

With the squad I have, I could not find two good transfers to make - I wanted to bring in Sivtsov and Sergio Pardilla - so I made two bad transfers instead and brought in Greg Van Avermaet.
