I thought Wiggins looked tired at the end of yesterday, so he might take it easy today . . . and just follow Mollema and Nibali

Cobo takes red and a SH8T load of points cause the HC wasn't the finish, so that'll get scored aswell  20

I've had Mollema all along but didn't know that about the mountain points. (Hope it doesn't apply to Fantasy cycling). If I'd known that I would have changed him.

Got 4 of the first 5 across the line... looks like this will be my best day of the race (not saying much, had a disaster the first couple of weeks)

Shouldn't have got rid of Froome 2 days ago: going to have to put him back soon.

Lagutin did well though at 10th.

Pity about Wiggins but he did come 5th, which isn't bad. Still nearly a week to go for something to go wrong for Cobo.

Pity about Wiggo but as stated there's still another week with more climbing to come. Lets hope the Geox team are not strong enough to keep the lead and Froome / Wiggins can prosper from it.  2

After all Cobo has had to do it all on his own without help and his legs must be suffering.

Froome only 20 second behind and Wiggo only 46 and Sky have a much stronger team, one mistake by Geox and sky will put one of them back in red

I think this will be the first day I get over 100 points so in that respect it's good. In the sense that Brad lost the jersey, though, it will be very sad

Got 97 but I lost about 35-40 points over 2 days by not having Froome. 'Nnoyed with Nieve but pleased about Poels. 7 out of 9 in top 20. Now it's back to mountain points and breaks, (after the flat). Glad I've got 4 transfers. Going to need them!

I think only the top 4, Cobo, Froome, Wiggo and Mollema have a chance to win overall now, so it makes some other choices a bit easier

Did Poels get 8 pts for the HC? Did Wiggo get any? Might have a few more then.

I dont know who was doing the points today, But they aint put the HC points on YET

The rules say

"Points awarded for points accrued in the climber's classification from the day's stage. Does not include mountaintop stage finishes."

Well Stage 15 did not finish on the HC climb, there was .6km downhill, the HC was at 141.6 and the Finish was at 142.2

Cat.Hors Alto de l'Angliru 141.6 km
Distance completed: 142.2 km

So thats not the finish and points should be awarded

Right folks, the scores are in. However, they dont currently include the points for the HC climb. We're holding a referee's enquiry as to whether we count this as a summit finish or not, given that the finish line was 600m after the summit.

Watch this space for the results of our enquiry and a potential change to the scores...just give us time to meet at our top secret underground scoring facility and stroke our beards for a while.  26
