Aren;t I glad I didn't stick with my heart and leave Tom in instead of trading in Kittel like I did? Already a better score than yesterday so that's good, in my book

If Cav comes home 3rd, i'll have a 1,2,3 and as rhysb I'd like Galimzyanov home in fourth Nerd

With Lemaire already picking me up some points i've destroyed my 46 points yesterday and i only know the first two home

Yay - Kittel, Sagan, Cav, Guardini, Navardauskas, Blythe all in the points! Only started following non-TDF cycling last year, your game (along with Pro-Cycling manager) is a brilliant way to learn - thanks! Time to bring in the punchers for the next 2 days...

1,2,7,8,10,11,12 i think so not bad out in the end but it looks like it has been similer for everyone else so doubt it will help me claw back places in the league

Sagan will score more than Kittel. he's top in GC, points and youth and will do better tomorrow I'm sure.

Got 2, 3, 5, 7, 11, 12. Thank god Guardini was 7th and Cav nowhere.

Oss has done nothing this time, but he'll be gone for tomorrow. 4 and 5 will be different. Prob have Kittel in for 6.

Nope, Sagan is 2nd in GC now and 2nd in points, Greipel leads both, with Kittel 3rd on points

175 for me today, Sagan and Kittel both scoring 38 Devil

My highest score for the year to date to

182 for equal 68th place, so there where some big scores today. My divisional rival got 25 points on me today.

Don't worry it all changes tomorrow and again on Saturday.

You are unlikely to see such scores again until Sunday, if everybody can get their sprinters back.

Need to review tomorrow's parcours to see if it is a 2 or 4 transfer day.
