Mine is fairly predictable - mainly TT with a couple of cheap guys that I'm planning to keep in for the first few days at least...

Sagan (a given)
Cancellara (in for Brad at the last minute)
Chavanel (I just really like him. TTing is much-improved)
Rogers (needed his cheapness in order to afford...)
Zabriskie
Grivko (could've gone Larsson but thought I'd be different)
Engoulvent (Can be good in prologues, and could be OK for first few stages)
Julien Simon (Cheap - could be a good dark horse for the first week or could do nothing)
Burghardt (Just fancied a punt on him, he seems to like attacking if BMC let him)

Still fancy Wiggins to win today, very excited about his prospects for the podium...

Cancellara
Sagan
Rogers
Zabriskie
Engoulvent
Simon

Until late last night I'd settled on having Chavanel for Cancellara and more TTing DSs but changed my mind, hopefully Spartacus will do the business today.

I wanted Wiggins, Sagan and cancellara three, but couldn't fit them in my team and still have who else I wanted  22

Bernaudeau is popular then  4

Spartacus would look great in yellow and it would distinguish him as different to the rest of the Shack/Nissan rabble.

Could use his classics knowhow to go quite a few days as race leader....in fact whoever leads the race today has a good chance of keeping it for a while if their team 'mark' Gilbert.

That was part of the reason I decided in the end to not pick too many TTing DSs, it'd take too long to get them out of my team. So I decided to splash out on expensive stars.

Fabian Cancellara (RSN)
Levi Leipheimer (OPQ)
Thomas Danielson (GRM)
Juan Jose Haedo (SAX)
Lieuwe Westra (VCD)
Lars Bak (LOT)
David Zabriskie (GRM)
Gustav Erik Larsson (VCD)
Giampaolo Caruso (KAT)

Here is mine, not much thought. Sagan in tommorrow plus one other then Cav for rest of week till the two lumpy stages. No Wiggo till TT, then probably out because I think he might not win any stages except TTs and still win the tour.Hesjedal will make an appearance in team at dome point plus Hoog, Sorensen and any form DS

Best of luck one...and....all

Yup as i think both of the guys i will be bringing in could top 5 and thus negate the points for being in yellow

However im now starting to regret my choices as gerrans is off the pace and i replaced grivko with lancaster, that will be a mistake it seems

I'm watching live, decent coverage, but for anyone who cannot catch the race live on certain days. I HAVE to recommend the official tracker app, loving it to go along with the live coverage  3

Chose Grivko over Larsson, and got Chavanel. Also chose Zabriskie over Lancaster, so lets see if Captain America will prove me right... Going OK so far!

Nope - Zabriskie 51st. Nev'mind! I'm a bit worried about Phil Liggett - he's really struggling to keep up...

Boo, poor from Zabriskie which is disappointing and I nearly picked Chavanel, happy that Martin didn't put in a great time. Wiggins seems off the pace  2

1st and 2nd but not much else, Sagan was a poor choice, just need to decide who to ditch for Gilbert and work out how long Cancellara will hold the yellow.
