83 today i think, if i hadn't bothered with transfers lastnight i would have had 103

If i had left Mollema in but taken in Kessiakoff it would have been 121 Angry Angry

Alright day today better than some it seems - 112 points+ a few more for other random stuff... Big Grin

Mollema, Martin, Kessiakoff, Poels in top 20 + few points off other things from Fuglsang, Moreno, Rodriguez. Not bad.

Bought Dan Martin and Poels in before the stage Devil

I've got Mollema and not much else. Could have done my 3 tt ploy by putting in Wiggins instead of J Rod and had Dan Martin too, then played my 2 TT specialists for tomorrow, still

Really wish I hadn't transferred in Fischer yesterday. Now I'm either gonna be a rider down for the TT tomorrow or not be able to make the transfers I wanted to tonight Worried

I'm guessing "londonplayer" will be one of the top scorers today with his team if they haven't changed much since yesterday Big Grin

Gkam,

I'm not so sure. I didnt have Mollema. I was greedy, I ditched Bennati so I could stake everything on scarponi and look what happened. I did have dan martin though....

PS Any of you guys on twitter?

You'll find me on twitter but i rarely tweet as i dont have much to tweet about Big Grin Same name as i have on here

So you did the same as me n put in Scarponi for Mollema, we should have kept faith, i've had him from the start and only took him out lastnight Crying

hokay so now I have Wiggo, Cancellara and Tony for tomorrow, so you can bet that Grabsch, Phinney, Nibali and Brakovicz take it. However time will tell. Big Grin

I have NONE of yours Big Grin

I'm taking a risk, Wiggo did some amount of work today, so i doubt he'll be in the top 5, i took Phinney out a few stages back so no doubt he'll do something

I have gone this way

Stage 75 IN:Jakob FUGLSANG OUT:Daniel MARTIN
Stage 75 IN:Marzio BRUSEGHIN OUT:Pablo LASTRAS GARCIA

I have a feeling Fuggly will be in red tomorrow and Marzio is a decent TT on his day with him being only over 1 min down and 16th, i think he'll get into the top 10 GC, so should gain some points back that way over the ones i lose by not having the winners tomorrow

Same as me except i've gone for Machado as he seems to be a canny time trialist and not poels

yeh i already poels in and needed to get capecchi out so was a choice between machado and froome, so plumped for froome as he could get into top 10 on gc also, but originally was gonna put machado till i changed my mind
