Longest stage today. Having had a look at the forecast I'm going for a big risk today. Replacing Degenkolb and Kluge with Geoffrey Archer and Peter Andre. Hopefully 1Team4Individuals wont win!  16

Woops I just realised my mistake... "Peter Andre" dosn't work, I mistook GRE for Greece rather than Greenedge. Anyway it's Aidis Kroupis if that's his name. Geoffrey Archer is more obvious I think.

I'm hoping the pack stay together today, a couple of changes for me

Ian Stannard in for Rodiger Selig
Tom Veelers in for Denis Galimzyanov

Mark Cavendish
Mark Renshaw
Tom Boonen
Tom Veelers
Nikolas Maes
Roger Kluge
Ramunas Navardauskas
Ian Stannard
Adam Blythe

So i want a Sky, Omega or 1T4i win

My ideal would be Cav win, Boonen 2nd, Renshaw 3rd, Veelers 4th with Blythe in 5th and the others in the top 20  19 I can dream

Steegmans
Guardini

I think "Cav vs. Farrar" is what we are going to see today.

I hope so..

Talk about commentators curse, Katusha rider towards the front had hangs just hanging over the front and arms resting on the bars

They said, he's going to cause a crash because he has no control if there is a gust of wind, 30 seconds later, BOOM, he got a nudge, had his hands on the hoods again, but went down right at the front in the middle of the pack, not one other rider went down  19

I didn't do too badly today, although I would've done a lot better if I hadn't made any transfers.  7

I made one stupid transfer... Sagan for Fletcha, other than that I'm quite pleased.

I've got Degenkolb (thought I'd transferred him out but it was Sagan instead), Selig, and Guardini in top 10, plus 5 bonus points for my stupid transfer.

Got lucky today, 6 of the top 8 are in my team, as is Boonen... looks like giving up on transfers may have been a good move!

Kept Cav in after he cost me and Demare, one of only 2 riders I haven't changed. Got rid of Selig though for Kroupis who Eurosport were saying was second until they realised it was Oss. For a moment I thought I had 1 and 2!

I was a bit annoyed cos I'd transferred Sagan out this morning. Then I remembered I'd replaced him with Cav  4

Ah ruined my performance today with a 73 pointer.

Is Kohler goign to do anything this tour or is he just a waste of space in the slightest breeze?

Oh bugger.. not happy with that. At least the tumble down the ranks was more a slip than the freefall which I was anticipating when I saw the initial results. Now what to do with three transfers...
