2 intermediate sprints worth 6,4,2 seconds each plus an uphill sprint finish worth 12,8,4 seconds also means anyone within 24 seconds(46 riders) could be in the Leaders red jersey tonight.....without time splits!!

I've made no transfers today as my team consisted of 5 climbers and 4 sprinters with yesterday's TTT considered only in the event of a 50/50 decision,with the 4 quickies coming out tomorrow in favour of J-Rod, plus 3 climbers in good GC/KOM/Points positions.....unless of course any of them are high up on GC themselves.

Froome
Gilbert
Bennati
Swift
Talansky
Quintana
Bouhanni
Florencio
Machado

My only change was taking Boom in for Gasparotto as he's out with a smashed collar bone

I brought in boom and castroviejo....he,s bound to be still top 5 at end of day, but I can only bring in two climbers tomorrow...probably a katusha and sky combo of stars....
I aim to pack my squad with four columbians soon...none in there yet though.

Most of the popular sprinters were up there. I imagine some people will have 1-2-3-4.

Disappointed. 4, 9, 11. Terpstra in GC. Maybe things will improve.

1-4 plus Quintana in GC and the top four in the points comp, much better than yesterday. Now to decide how to use my four transfers.

I banked on losing some points today. But I scored a massive 0  19

My purist team did slightly better with 2 points

Cant wait for the mountains now as thats what both my teams are based upon. Climbs and uphill finishes  4

Did really well yesterday as I had top 4, jumped a massive 1087 places up the table! Now trying to decide which mountain goats to bring in for today, my gut says Valverde and Van den Broeck may have a go but I've learned this year that the best tactic is just to play it safe, so I'm not even going to go after that stage win.

I agree drh, today is not a day to chase a stage win - too early in the tour, too many guys could do well, difficult to predict. I've kept a transfer back for tomorrow so I can see what happens. So have 5 guys that could do well today/tomorrow, 2 sprinters keeping for Weds, and 2 guys I could drop after today if an obvious replacement arises.

I climbed 1393 places up the table yesterday! Although that says more about my stage 1 than my stage 2...
