I have 7 in common with the leader .... Quite happy that I am probably in the right ballpark!

Henderson and Demare instead of Oss and Navar.... for the record.

@d_jp

thinking the same but went for Oss, lucky!

Had Demare from the start (didn't he do well Dave!) but wasn't expecting 1st today, had Cav though so not perfect, otherwise it would have been a big score.

Still 139 (I think) is my best score for a while so it's coming back. Looking forward to the ToO. Looks to be a more interesting race!

111 points today, happy with that.

For future races I'm really gonna have to learn how to play the TTT well, as it seems to be my undoing so far!

OK 90 points. Not brilliant but not bad in the great scheme of things. Gained in the overall league and still in the top 500. Was half expecting to parachute half way down the league. Bring on Oman Big Grin

54 today, worst of this tour. Crying No one in the top ten finishers.

Farrar had lots of guaranteed points, why swop him? He scored more than Demare who won the stage.

@Dave Smile Smile

up 10 places today, my first upward move for a while. It seems illness interferes with fantasy as well as real cycling! Hope to get back on my bike in a couple of days when I'm completely recovered and the big freeze abates. Had to change my battery on the car and have a winter service yesterday and then had an overheating rad today!! Hate cars, can't wait to get back on the bike!!

Sagan had a good day, stage 5, made the mistake of thinking he was getting some good form D Oh , not sure there's anything guaranteed in this game though...
