I'll be looking out for Meersman today, could be his kind of finish. Apart from that, I'm just keeping transfers in hand so I can bring in a couple of climbers tomorrow and still be able to stage-hunt on Sunday...

See I think Marczynski suits this stage down to the ground! (see the stage he came 4th) I also think it suits Gilbert, Valverde, Mondory, Meersman, Clarke

2,4,5 and 20 Could have been worse I suppose. Would have been a lot better if Degenkolb and Breschel had stayed away for that last km

Did anyone else see swifty run over somthing pink in last few yards just as he was about to pull out from behind pg? It slowed him right down as he looked backwards. May he got a flat.

I'm not sure - he was at 1'52" yesterday. Today - 1st at the intermediate, second on the stage and 3" ahead of Contador - not sure what that all adds up to. 17 seconds?

EDIT - checked the rules 6" + 8" + 3" == 17"

Nope. I saw Gilbert run over it and then scoot past Swift, It was just one of those stupid plastic inflatable clapper things  3

Oh holy Jebus, I just checked my scores from today, didn't even reach double figures....A whole 8 points. My purist team got 88  19

I think Dr Heaton better watch himself. With the two below him having two of the break guys who will be sweeping up the mountains points tomorrow  3

Argh!

Lost another 6 points out of my lead in the purist comp, down to 16 and getting VERY nervous about tomorrow and the possibility of Simon Clarke absolutely destroying me  20

If you've never tried the purist game, try it next year, its great fun and incredibly tense, I have no idea what's going to happen and I can't make any changes which is absolutely killing me.

Tell me about it!

I really needed Meersman and Viviani to score well on the flat yesterday but they let me down big time. Really need solid results from Marczynski and Talansky tomorrow otherwise I'm screwed and if Clarke goes and bags a load of mountain points I might as well kiss 1st place goodbye  20

After 19 stages I can't believe its so close and its come down to this.
