Made no changes to my team and got the rollover 4 transfers for stage 4.

But i have to admit it's Cav's last hurrah before the hills so i'm going for him to at least contest the stage and finally get me a few points.  45

A pitiful 49 points today, so had to make a couple of changes..

Peter Sagan in, Marcel Kittel out
Nacer Bouhanni in, Adam Blythe out.

Probably be a Kittel/Blythe 1-2...  13

Ho Hum  29

So annotying that Sohrabi pulled out, I've had an empty space in my team because I picked wrong from the start and had to compensate by BARE transfers.

You beat me by 3 points, but we've made the exact same changes.

Dropped Cav for Sagan as he should do well in 4 as well. There's a little kick up at the end, it's not all downhill. Reckon Cav might be a bit off-colour. Hoping Oss does well and leads out Sagan.

Four guys away, with 1.25 of a gap, it was as much as 3.30

Clarke (CSS), Isaychev (KAT), Lemaire (BGT) & Hulsmans (FAR)

So who all took Lemaire out  19

Took Clarke out after 1 as I thought he wasn't recovered yet. Seems to be now!

Seems a few did that after seeing them tweeting about taking him out, i had him in Qatar but didn't do much, so left him out of Oman

Guardini had better do well as he was the one I put in for Clarke! Bet Cav wins after I took him out as well! Break will be caught I'm sure or at least I hope it will. If Clarke wins I'll be really pissed off!

@Gkam84

Clarke didn't ride in Qatar. He was ill. Well back on 1st stage of Oman and second as well. Thought stage 4 might suit him better but he obviously chose today as it's downhill at the beginning and therefore a little easier. Doubt if he's recovered enough to stay away from the peleton though.

Score 65 points for me in TDU when he did stay away that's why I have a soft spot for him. Main reason I'm high up in the overall.

Actually to be perfectly accurate he pulled out after stage 1 in Qatar.

Yeah i had him in the TDU i think and brought him in for Qatar and then had to switch him out after stage 1, i didn't notice he withdrew, i cant remember

Gap is now 1.13 for the 4 leaders with 15kms to go

Come on boys, push on and Lemaire to win  4

This is the latest from twitter from Team Sky.

The riders are heading towards Muscat now. There is a slight rise and then the final five kilometres are pan flat. #TourOfOman

From yesterday

That really was a steep finish at the #TourOfOman yesterday! Should be one for the sprinters again today on stage three.

Seems like Team Sky didn't know the profile very well either?!

OPQS Cycling Team @opqscyclingteam
The break has been caught inside of 3k at #tourofoman according to @antmccrossan. We'll see how we do! #OPQS

I hope Steegmans does well; they said he was going to have a go at some point!

would good here to now if Galimzyanov comes home 4th then if the rest of the top 9 places can be filled with my sprinter DS that would make up for the shocking first 2 stages yesterday
