I don't think I've ever got a good score in a TTT, so I've picked a team for tomorrow.

Elia Viviani (LIQ)
Ben Swift (SKY)
Allan Davis (GRE)
Daniele Bennati (RSN)
Manuel Antonio Cardoso (CJR)
Xavier Florencio (KAT)
Raymond Kreder (GRM)
Gert Steegmans (OPQ)
Nacer Bouhanni (FDJ)

If everything goes to plan I should have 4 transfers & lots of spare credits for when the race goes uphill.

Also, Can you clear this up Dave. Omega Pharma and Rabobank were given EXACTLY the same time on the live program. Even though it showed Rabo coming in before Thinking

So they should be 2nd equal on the results. But its not happening. Rabo only moved off the winners seats when Movistar came in. So OPQS shouldn't even be second. Its a MESS Angry
