Eurosport have just put a curse on my team again

I thought it was great that they mentioned almost every rider i had in another stage, but nothing came of it, they have just done it again within 15 mins of the program starting, only 1 rider they haven't said Crying

Man I feel so stupid for leaving in Mollema now, figured it wouldn't make much difference but I didn't expect Cobo to go finish in 10th!

Gasparatto was another poor choice, he's featured well in every other sprint so far as has Degenkolb, bad day all around Sad

Grr, I put Van Aver instead of Haedo, had Sagan too.

Froome is rapidly learning that with splits at sprint finishes being ruthlessly judged, he needs to keep up with the sprinters or he will lose time. Wiggins... isn't. Cracking day out if you had Cobo.
