Rodriguez (guaranteed 17 points today, more than both Contador (14) and Valverde (15))
Degenkolb
Bennati (very nearly went Swift as Sky will want a stage win)
Viviani

Steegmans
Lodewyck
Meersman
Cardoso
Talansky

Hoping for a good result to move me back up the table but not expecting overly much, fingers crossed that both Davis and Swift do poorly today.

looks like a low scoring day for me... seems I made the rookie error, not confirming my transfers.  20
I think John Degenkolb will be today's winner though its a pitty he is not on my team.

Alberto Contador (SAX)
Joaquin Rodriguez (KAT)
Alejandro Valverde (MOV)
Laurens ten Dam (RAB)
Mikel Astarloza (EUS)
Javier Moreno (MOV)
David De La Fuente Rasilla (CJR)
Simon Clarke (GRE)
Andrew Talansky (GRM)
Off to confirm changes for tomorrows stage  1

Damn. I was mixed at taking Viviani in. My other change was going to be Anacona out for Smukulis....he's in the break, but not many points to be earned out there today

Crash!
Linus GERDEMANN (175), Nairo Alexander QUINTANA ROJAS (007) and Arnold JEANNESSON (081).

To the doctor
Travis MEYER (156), that was involved in the crash, needs medical assistance.

Unrelated question, if Swift can't win stages against generally not the best opposition out there (watch him go any win today) will Sky bother to keep him in their grand tour teams? A plan B is always useful to have if plan A (Froome in this case) doesn't work out but if Swift can't win stages is he worth having in there at all?

If he's not worth picking, do Sky need to go out and find a top class sprinter for next year who can work without a lead-out (assuming they'll lose Cavendish)?.

Fair enough. You can have it if you want it  1 - I thought you had less time recently but maybe I was mistaken.

I'm not so sure about the muscle though - need to lose flab and gain some of that  2

Nah you are fine, I was messing, If I see you have it up then I don't bother with it.

I was slightly busier during the TdF but i'm back to doing nowt, hopefully for the rest of the year  4

I'm happy that others are getting involved in reporting stages, breaks, points, results and the like.

The reason I have over 4000 posts, I was doing that almost all of last season.  3 26

Yeah, you might as well have run your own live text updates.

I was more involved during the TdF but have been busier at work since (i never get to watch any cycling live  20 ) and none of the other races (except the Giro) interest me quite so much.
