Will PhilGil get yellow in his homeland?

Can Spartacus hang on to yellow?

Will Sagan,Boassen-Hagen,Goss fight it out on the upwards drag or perhaps a more orthodox bunch sprint?

Perhaps even a breakaway win but.....who'll be in it?

I personally bought in EBH and Albasini for Wiggins and Larsson and have this team

EBH
Cancellara
Hunter
Rogers
Albasini
Engoulvent
Grabsch
Gretsch
Zabriskie

Gilbert in for Wiggins
Cancellara
Sagan
Rogers
Arashiro in for Zabriskie
Engoulvent
Simon
Bernaudeau
Izagirre

Hoping for a decent show from Gilbert/Sagan and Cancellara to keep yellow and possibly finish top 10.

If I were betting money I'd go with Gilbert for today, but my plan was to start with Sagan and Cancellara so I'm sticking with that - Spartacus might be there or thereabouts today as well so I don't want to waste a transfer...

Cancellara
Sagan
Rogers (will probably go tomorrow)
Chavanel
Burghardt
Engoulvent
Simon
Gallopin (in for Grivko)
Boeckmans (in for Zabriskie)

I've put in Gerrans and Albasini. Ideally, I would like to have put in Sagan and Gilbert but restricted by both points and transfers.....

My team is

Wiggins
Spartacus
Gerrans
M Rogers

Albasini
Boeckmans
J Simon
Gretsch
Zabriskie

At least I picked a breakaway guy, although not too happy with how the mountain points are awarded...

5 points for 1st at the top of a cat 4 and that is it? id prefer it to be less points but more riders get them like it has been for previous races, like 4,3,2,1 based on the number of scoring riders as in the race. Or does only one rider score points in the race?

Should be at least 10 intermediate sprint points though as 6th place will get that......plus a chance of combativity award.

Go Urtasun  26

ive got Edet in both my teams.....and after doing my research there is only one scorer on cat 4 mountains, however they only get 1 point in there comp, yet we get 5, but for them in the HC climb they get 20 points yet we only get 15. Just seems the difference is quite great thats all.

now i know the fulls scoring im not moaning and i guess its the same for all...just a massive reward i guess if you get the right guy that goes over the cat 4 1st

Is anyone watching the EuroSport coverage?

I CAN'T UNDERSTAND A WORD STEPHEN IS SAYING.

But I don't like the Halfords adverts on ITV4.

OMG.

After literally two hours of constant commentary from my grandad, at the finish he turns and asks me:

Is this a race?

 20 20 20 20 20 20

Cancellara is a LEGEND

Playing purist, so not bad having Canc, Sagan and then Wiggo's points today.

If i was playing transfers i would have had 1/2/3 but not a big loss  4
