I think I got about 134 points yesterday although that's with calculations on back of a fag packet.

Valverde(for Moncoutie) He has almost as many guaranteed points from GC/Pts/KOM than Moncoutie can get with ALL the bonuses today.

Stages 16 and 20 are the big fantasy breakaway days I reckon.

Thats my only change leaving 2 transfers in the bank(I almost dare not take out Cesar or DeLaFuente as I just KNOW they'll do something on the day I do!!)

Contador
Rodriguez
Valverde
Capecchi
Cesar
DeLaFuente
Talansky
Marczynski
Sarmiento

I needed to do something a bit different, I dont think clarke will go today, I think he will go tomorrow

Ideally I would get rid of anacona for clarke but credits mean that I can't, so im gonna have to get rid of anacona (maybe for astraloza) and bring in clarke for majka (even though i would like to keep majka). I was going to axe talansky until what he did yesterday!

15ª etapa Vuelta: Un cuarto de hora para la fuga

A 46,5 kms de meta. Lastras (Movistar Team), Mondory (Ag2r), Seeldraeyers y Kashechkin (Astana), De la Fuente y Piedra (Caja Rural), Rubén Pérez (Euskaltel-Euskadi), Reynés (Lotto), Geschke (Argos-Shimano), Lagutin (Vacansoleil) comienzan las ascensión a El Mirador del Fito con 14:50.

Break definitely going to win today. Got no-one in it. Scores will be much lower today. Hope De la Fuente doesn't too well as he's the only rider most people will have.  3

Contador
Rodriguez
Valverde (for Froome)
Viviani
Niemic (for Meersman, nearly went for Verdugo but my girlfriend thought Niemic had a better name)*
Talansky
Marczynsky
Quintana
Bouhanni

Couldn't work in a decent Bouhanni replacement so decided to leave him for now. Team is stacked towards the finish for today rather than breaks. Froome is looking tired and out of ideas (why attack yesterday if he was so tired? He needs to work on his tactics) so have gone for an in form Valverde, hoping he'll continue to outscore him.

Getting nervous for my purist team, 1st place has Valverde and Clarke and its hurting me, my team is:
Contador
Rodriguez
Froome
Viviani
Talansky
Meersman
Marczynski
Quintana
Bouhanni

Hoping Marczynski and Talansky score heavily.

*don't laugh, its a tactic that worked really well during the Giro.

With 15 points on offer for the special climb today. Clarke might not be holding it at the end of the day  3

I made some good transfers for a change - Seeldraeyers and Contador in for Moncoutie and De Gendt.

Also have De La Fuente in the break, and J-Rod and Valverde behind, so hoping for my best stage so far. Maybe I'll even get back in the top 500!

This is exactly how the USA Pro Challenge went. The GC sorted itself out very quickly, so teams hardly had to be changed. All good fun, though.

11, 12, 13, 14, 16, 19 plus 1, 2, 3, 7 and 10 GC.

Not sure but probably about average except I went Niemic over Anacona. Not sure what to do with my team, want to bring in Anton but not sure how I could afford him.

My worry now is that Katusha won't want to chase any breaks and risk Contador picking up bonus time whereas Saxo won't chase because Contador fears Rodriguez continuing to get the jump on him and getting the bonuses. That means that today could be repeated with breaks staying away.

Whereas I have 1, 2, 3, 7 but no 8 on GC. Amazing how this takes over your life. GF has long since stopped asking how I'm doing.

I got 4,7,11,12,13 today, plus some extra bits and bobs from the climbs and sprints. Strategy too risky to reap dividends overall, but went well today. Now to decide whether to keep Seeldraeyers...  4

Clarke will be overtaken tomorrow....mark my words, I won't be taking him in. Not going to use my 2 transfers tonight so I work my team towards the sprinters on Tuesday/Wednesday ready for Thursday/Friday and Sunday  3
