is all ive got to say. Is it me or do the stage profiles give a very false impression of the stage?
Swift won, Viviani 2nd, the two riders i transferred out, as the profile in no way suggested it would be anything like a sprint
I could have told you it was going to be a sprint. But I'm only purist in this to keep the points rolling. Its a shocking race with even worse coverage and tomorrow is just a killer stage that even the TdF wouldn't even think about putting in.

I got 9th, 11th and 14th I think +5
i got 9th 16th and 18th, then 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th on GC, just annoyed that the two i take out came 1st and 2nd.
I got the impression that the last km was much more uphill than it actually was, and i seem to think the commentators thought that too!
Well, I got 1, 9, 16, 18 but only because I didn't have enough transfers to take Ben Swift out. I'm quite glad about that now. Wish I had any idea about some of these riders so I could have a chance at guessing who's going to be in tomorrows breakaway.
I don't think you'll have much of a break away tomorrow. The big climbers are going to be the only ones at the front
Me 2 stage profile for Fantasy Cycling said high mountains! so i naturally assumed no sprint finish.......transferred Swift and Vivianni out! lucky picked up points for climbs and intermediate sprint's!
Got 2nd, 6th, 9th, 13th, 16th and 18th plus 1,2,3,11 and the usual +5 twice for Swift winning. Should be a canny score.
Put in Kwiatkowski and Henao, which worked out ok. Lucky I left in Swift. Tomorrow will be a bit tougher though.
