Belatedly brought in House( Big Grin ) and Urtasun( Thinking ) for Wytinck and Konig

House
Urtasun
Cavendish
Rowe
Van Poppel
Handley
JTL
Haas
Howard

I think the key to this will be the assessment of stages 6-7 and the rights/wrongs of bringing in say Wiggins/Sanchez/Basso etc over the pure sprinters.

Yeah, today could be a good or bad day depending on where your riders are in relation to the split. Not many in the front group:

4th on the stage - Men in Black had Martias and Rowe instead of my Caruso and Schorn. Chuffed to be into the top 20 overall though.

Have 4 transfers in hand for tomorrow, have to decide how many to use now...

Sat and watched the race today and tv coverage, as mentioned previously, was crap.

The coverage at the finish was worse than crap, we had a helicopter trying to follow through a narrow street and lost the riders completely and then no motorcycle coverage Angry

So in the end we saw about 200 metres of the finish run. Not impressed at all.

There are no stupid questions, just stupid people.

Hi guys just noticed that the points classification hasn't been added to the riders scores! Thinking

Not that it matters if its used or not as everyone has basically the same team.

I started with most of the riders I still have, but everyone else has them now Angry

Doubtful. Nothing is that bad. I think Cav might even manage over it. Friday could be different though Wink

Friday is a poser, the mountains are not that high or steep enough to trouble the likes of Sky and Euskatel so will they put the hammer down and drop the multitude like today Thinking

If they do i can only see Wiggins as the winner of the whole race. Will be interesting to see what happens.

There are no stupid questions, just stupid people.
