I don't really know what to expect, so I've gone mainly sprinty for today, primarily from teams that should do OK in the TTT, and then have 4 transfers for stage 3 once I've seen who's in form.

Haussler
Roelandts
Boonen
Bos
Blythe (probably silly but feeling patriotic at the mo!)
Kristoff
Demare
Guarnieri
Rosseler

Blythe has good form from Paris-Correze and BMC should do well in the TTT so not a bad pick at all.

Cool, thats good news about Paris-Correze, I hadn't noticed that. Yes it was with half an eye on the TTT, nearly went for a second BMC rider too but copped out in the end.

2,4,5,9 for me - happy with that. Didn't see it - did poor Boonen get involved in another crash?

Nah Boonen rolled in (behind the sprint, gave up with about 2/300m to go), whether he was in the top 20 time will tell

1, 3, and 4 for me based on the official top 10 that I've seen. Normally I'd say that's pretty good but it looks like everyone else had the same ideas as me (or better) so I don't know how I'm going to pull ahead in the purist league.

VERY confusing and I think its going to cause BIG problems with scoring, as they have the overall, but including the time bonuses. So everyone is out of position.

The finish line position is not listed  39

Hi guys - don't know if I'm the first to point out that the scores don't seem quite right unless I'm missing something?

EG Haussler 14? (gets at least 22 for coming 4th)
Blythe 11, Kristoff 4. Haven't checked any others so may be more...

Don't use the official site Dave, as they are not listing it as they cross the line, they are only listing the GC thats including the time bonuses. The link above is spot on. I'll paste it again for you

Kruopis got 29 points in the game and should only have 7
Ventoso got 26 in game and should only have 6  19
