Wiggins
EBH
Evans
LLSanchez

Edet
Bernaudeau
Kluge
Howard
Pauriol

Mountain guys from yesterday picked up a couple of points early on. Pauriol chased the quartet for a while, not sure if he got any mountain points. Won't be much if he did. Thought about Moncoutie as he does like the mountain classification but he's a bit of a risk.

Think it's going to be an uphill sprint. Hope EBH and Evans go head-to-head and EBH wins, but will probably go the other way if that happens. Bit annoying to watch it on the Internet when I paid to get Eurosport for the cycling Angry Angry

Wiggins and Evans high up at the finish. Not sure where EBH and LLSanchez were.

1. Dani Moreno (Katusha) 4:02:38
2. Julien Simon (Saur-Sojasun) m.t.
3. Tony Gallopin (RadioShack-Nissan) m.t.

I had 2nd, 3rd and 11th. 5th and 8th overall, 2nd and 3rd in points and 1st in Young rider

I was thinking that about EBH but as tomorrow is actually flat im gonna keep him, but gonna put rogers back in for Haedo (what an error and two costly transfers they were)

So, with the GC, Points and Mountain points I've got it'll be pretty close then.

Yes, tomorrow is the flattest stage all round. Maybe even Kluge or Howard will do something. Can't change any DSs though unless I get rid of a star as my balance is 0. But I could hold my fire and keep back transfers for the TT, which was my original plan now I think about it. Thinking

I was gonna hold back my transfers, but been as though Haedo has dropped out, I wont loose anything by choosing to put rogers back in.

So for tomorrow in essence I have Ciolek, EBH and i hope Gallopin, Ratto and Simon go for it too

Then I will have 3 transfers for the TT, Wiggo in for EBH, someone in for Ciolek and a DS change, probably Ratto or Gallopin Thinking

I had moved ahead in the overall, however in the premium only overall you are miles ahead of me (or were)

I make it 83. Did you count mountain points for the last climb, you have 3 of those? Assuming they count.

Wiggins 23
Evans 30
EBH 0
LLS 18
Bernaudeau 8
Edet 4

nothing else.

Not really bothered about Overall Premium (missed the 1st stage of the TOC and may play the other little tours purist to save time), only Overall and East Anglia (still top!) and WINNING A BIKE (fat chance the way I'm playing at the moment - much easier last year). Like to finish top 20 overall and 1st in East Anglia.

Dave scored me at 80 (only 10 for martin, so missed his GC points Worried)

For me i reckon i should actually have

Martin 16
Simon 34
Gallopin 33
Coppel 3

totalling 86

thats without those mountain points as i dont think we get those

Dave's on a dodgy connection but I'll have him double check. Just to confirm, no Fantasy KOM points for the final climb to the finish.

Cheers for that Simon

Alan we are roughly 100 points behind 20th in the overall, so a decent target to aim at, only 500 points behind 2nd, and with the TdF and the Vuelta still to come, and the lottery of the olympics and worlds in the main game we could still top 10 with some really good races.

Im 80th in the dauphine comp, 100ish behind the leader, however tomorrow is unlikely to go well for me. My average scores for the last too stages haven't been as bad as expected (once again Gallopin saves my bacon)

Yes, Gallopin was a good pick and originally I didn't see you had Simon as well. Pretty cheap, worth keeping in mind for the Tour. You're about 100 places above me in the Criterium but I think my team is better placed for some of the next stages.

I think top 10 overall is ambitious; there are still a lot of riders I don't know much about but I did well in the Tour last year so who knows. The Vuelta caught me offguard but I know a lot more abut the Spanish riders now.

I'm not confident about the next stage, still thinking about changing EBH and getting a few guys with some guaranteed points and building for the TT and afterwards. Froome did ok today; he could be an option for TT. Could bring in Martin as well, but both would restrict my DS options.

Well im sticking with EBH for tomorrow, basically my stars for the ITT will be Rogers, Wiggins, Martin and another.

Now is the time when i would love to be able to have 6 DS's and 3 Stars as I would rather have Porte than Rogers.

Im gonna go with a risky DS for the TT too

As for top 10 overall, yes it is ambitious, but who knows.
My seemingly average scores in this event turned out to not be as bad as i expected, so it just depends how much of a risk you take and how much the stages actually go as expected. I think im defo gonna look more at breakaway guys for the tour, as i think thats where i lost points in the Giro looking too much at the finish, and those riders not doing it at the finish.

Aaaaaargh - 31 & 34, might as well draw riders from a hat.
Still - 1st page overall & premium / top 10 in rest of the world ( moved up +1 - imagine that ).
The game is,definitely,afoot.
Degenkolb gotta score soon, don't ya think? Surprise

Soli Deo Gloria
