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 Sad

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.

I wouldn't say Sagan was a poor choice - he was a good choice who had a bad day, but could easily make up for it over the next few days.

My plan was to ditch Grivko and Zabriskie, so I'll probably still do that, although it means no Gilbert for tomorrow Thinking

That's odd. Top 9 comes to 253.7.

Don't buy upgrades. Ride up grades. (Merckx)

I guess you're right, Sagan should come good.

With a view to having a lie-in tomorrow I've already made my transfers, hoping for a good day tomorrow although I can't watch it Sad

Well I would say I did average, should have a decent haul in the halfords game, doubt i'm going to win their bike for stage one......not that i'd keep it Wink

Tonight i'll have to get all my shizz packed up for moving on Monday, else i'm not getting to watch tomorrow where my man Sagan will be spoiling anything Gilbert will attempt Wink

Wiggins and Larsson to come out tonight

Got 3 of the same stars and 3 of the DSs. Might bring in LLSanchez tonight, defo take out Larsson, not quite his thing it seems. Sagan I was hoping for at least top 10 but he is young!! Not sure what will happen tomorrow, but looking forward to it.

Dave, I think you've missed the green jersey standings, Cancellara should have scored 50, not 45. I've checked letour.fr and they're showing points comp standings.

Don't think it was a puncture, looked like a chain problem (pedanticism)

Yaaaaaaaaaaaaaas!

Wow. Not bragging (way more luck that skill involved), but...

Yaaaaaaaaaaaaaas!

164 points. Like Spartacus, currently leading the TdF. Don't panic, it won't last.

OUT:Lancaster/Kessiakoff
IN:Cooke/Freire

Didn't really want to take Lancaster out but have had a feeling with Cooke for this stage(this week even)and cost plus team meant it had to be Brett that came out.

Team:
Spartacus
Sagan
EBH
Freire
Impey
Boeckmans
Urtasun
Cantwell
Cooke

Thanks Dave, clearly just didn't read the scoring page well enough. Weren't green jersey points awarded in previous years?

Dont think have been awarded whenever a time trail/prologue opens the race (whatever the race may be)
