Ok the stage should be off and running by now with BMC having the lead so will have to work to cut back any breaks.

Will that effect any sprint by Thor or Phinney - only time will tell.

Going to work now so any updates would be appreciated.

Today's stage has been ridden at a fairly moderate 39.6kph, which is below the slowest pace on the time tables, so unless things pick up, we'll be behind schedule and see the finish between 5:30 and 6:00.

With 102k to go and the gap is down to 7:57... that's down from a high of 13:15.

Dennis Van Winden hit the deck in the peloton. He looks like he's really sore, but is getting back on the bike.

It's Sky doing the bulk of the work at the front of the peloton. It's working, too. The gap continues to drop.

Phinney dropped his chain with 8km to go, WAY off the back now. So i hope Hushovd stays in and goes for the sprint  3

Hmmm, not the end of the world having Hushovd but Cav will be coming in tonight I think, although I might wait and see how much Bos suffers from his crash.

on another note that means my planned transfer of bringing in Kristoff tomorrow will now not happen

I'm slightly happier that Hushovd finished in 7th, but thats the end of my Giro after making my transfers and them not registering  14

So i'm not making any more transfers and going purist  14

Nah, you've got 4 transfers now, if anything you're in a better position than me who chose to transfer in Chicchi and Guardini who've done naff all. I'd love to have 4 transfers tonight to bring in Cav, possibly Ferrari, Bonnet and someone else.

Really Thought it was after tomorrows stage....as they fly to Italy after tomorrorows stage, so an unusual but enforced early rest day. Its sort of given me some options todays result

Tuesday's a rest day isn't it? I figured it'd be four transfers, not that I have any idea what I'm going to do with them yet.

EDIT: Gkam's four are because his first two didn't register last night, so they carry over, it'll be four on Tuesday for everyone.

Yeah i only have four just now because of the system being an arse and taking my transfers and then spitting them back out......I'll sell them to you for 10 points rather then the 20 you would incur  3

So 40 transfers 10 points each, then i make back my loss of Cav not going into my team. Pissed off, but laughing about it. Still not playing the rest of the Giro, concentrating on the ToC now
