Looks like Roy was the one to have today. I didn't so just hope it comes back together and the right sprinters come out to play.

The four are caught by the peloton. Only Roy left out in front - about a minute and a half.

I dont have many sprinters, couldnt risk changing it, especially as tomorrow is unlikely to be a sprint. Bos/Fenn 1-2 would suit me

Me too - I did have Bennati (5th) and EBH (9th) but thats it. Could've done with Henderson getting up there but never mind - good to see someone new winning.

EBH must have lost his transponder (or been penalised). The UCI don't have him in the top ten GC at all atm.

TER - where did you get those results from (if it's not a secret)?

Just from the live tracker (went on cycling fans and clicked on live tracker) dont know who its run by.

I noticied EBH had gone off the GC results on eurosport, but was on the live tracker results, and would have been impossible to finish 9th and then drop down the GC

so for me
9th, 13th, 15th, 17th
then
1st, 2nd, 4rd, 4th, 6th, 7th, 8th on GC
then
1st, 2nd, 4th, 5th on points
then
1st, 4th on mountain
and
1st on young rider

Exactly 100 points I make it, could have been worse considering
