So another mass sprint today...it will be interesting to see how sprint heavy/light teams may be with the current terrain change coming up and only 4 transfers able to be had at any one time

I have saved 1 transfer to go with my other 2 tomorrow and ended up with this team for today after 3 transfers

Cav
Goss
Bennati
Visconti

Demare
Kristoff
Ulissi
Meersman
Navadauskas

Took in Bennati last night for the sprint and Izagirre for any break he might decide to get into.

Saving transfers to work on my mountains team. Have 4 just now. I've got my changes planned out already.

Sprint heavy but I shouldn't have to make any changes tonight leaving me with 4 transfers for stage 7. I'm hoping stage 6 will be a sprint but might use 1 transfer on a breakaway guy tonight, we'll see.

My team for today is sprint heavy however alot of them are only a few credits so for tomorrow i still have a lot of credits left to bring in a couple of big guns.

Marco Pinotti (BMC)
Mark Cavendish (SKY)
Geraint Thomas (SKY)
Enrico Gasparotto (AST)
Arnaud Demare (FDJ)
Ramunas Navardauskas (GRM)
Manuele Boaro (SAX)
Andrea Guardini (FAR)
Jack Bauer (GRM)

Still got 19 credits to play with for the bumpy stuff.

Gasparatto, or Gatto, might be in my team for tomorrow but I still think the likes of Sky and Garmin or Greenedge might work to bring the break back so they can try and win one of the few sprint-friendly finishes there are. Especially if Cav is dropped on one of the climbs I can see some of the teams with a strong sprinter pushing the pace up and trying to bring it all back together before the end.

I think Eurosport may have a problem today. 103 km still to go and only 2 hours 30 left of scheduled air time  19

I hope they don't cut it off before the finish and stay till the end of the stage  14

41.6 km per hour should be possible on a flat stage?!

(I did the maths in my head  39 )

Its not that flat, There are a couple of smaller climbs, The commentary team reckon it will split that pack and the break might stay away

I've had the winner each stage (including 2 garmin riders yesterday), so looks like Cav isn't going to get over the climb  4

I'd be worried that Farrar won't get over the climb, if anything he's just as bad uphill as Cav.

Phinney in a crash again along with Lucas Haedo and another Saxo rider, maybe his brother JJ

Caused by Lucas looking behind him to yap to a AG2R guy and not watching the road, clipped someone in front  13

Looks like wasn't JJ. Also, Phinney and others off the other side of the road. It wasn't exactly clear how that happened.

Ok, it wasn't JJ it was Boaro

Another crash with BMC and Farnese Vini. Santambrogio and Favilli half way up the climb

Everyone over the first climb ok from what it seems, but this next up hill doesn't seem as easy

I'd planned on bringing in Bennati since the rest day, but Farrar's GC points tempted me away.  20
