Dr Heaton the star of the show in the season opener sitting 1st with his purist team and 5th with his standard but may suffer for his lack of Eddy Boss tonight and that ChrisDStripes will be near the top.Of course there's nothing stopping the good Doctor from getting him in on his standard team?

Of the more prominent forum poster's Stumps(purist),Livestrongnick(purist) and myself(purist) are doing a considerable impression of Matt Goss at the back end of the pack punished for not having the Gorilla whilst STEVESPRO79(both teams)had him and are still in the Autobus.

It seems that most peoples purist teams are higher than their standard teams they picked to do well in stage 1. I think this shows that the GC riders are all over this race from the start and the sprinters won't have it all their own way. Gilbert will be keen to kick start his season in the rainbow jersy I reckon.  3

Dr Heaton's early promise proved to last about as long as a Grand Tour leaders jersey for Taylor Phinney as Stevemarks now holds a decent 40 point lead.

Forum Favourites WigBilly and livestrongnick are roaring through the pack with plenty of momentum.

How many of you are holding back transfers for stage 5?

Earned my 'Full House' badge today getting points from everyone on stage 4  4 Got to be happy with that!!!

145 points for 12th on the stage puts me in the top 10 pre-Willunga  4

Good to be using this smile icon again  4

Stevemarks still leads the way but by only 28 now and it may come down to stored transfers so 5th placed Fluided will suffer from non-premium restrictions.

I was aiming for my 'Podium' badge today but totally forgot about Cantwell!  20 Even more annoying is I had him in my team for the first couple of stages!

123 points to move me back up a little but making 6 transfers today bringing in punchy climbers and try and go after the 'Podium', 'Full House' and 'King of the Mountains' badges.

I have to say, if Dave reads this, the badges are excellent and give you something to go after once your chances of a victory are gone. Great idea.

EDIT: Also Dave, I can't remember if this was confirmed anywhere when the game was announced, but is there any plans for 'Jersey' competitions in the grand tours? So you could go after a sprint or mountains jersey once your chances at the overall are gone?

AFTER STAGE 4:

Sanderville leads the Purists by 8 from DrHeaton and a further 2 back to Makiavelli.....the leader is the only one with GT in his team which probably makes him favourite although the fate of the doctor lies largely in the hands of the 'Rainbow Stripes'.

My aim in standard is for a high overall finish for the season so no stage hunting for me but used all 3 of my transfers to take out Guardini,Kittel and Cantwell for Moreno,Hermans and Hansen(my tip for a possible stage win today).

Leaves me with

Thomas
Pietropolli
Hermans
Slagter
Hansen
Moreno
Kerby
Greipel
DeMare

Dave said on an email to us that he was still working on that and it wouldn't be ready for the start of the year
Im gonna guess it will be introduced for the giro maybe

Ah, I knew I'd seen it somewhere but couldn't find it. That should be good fun then, when I drop to 100/150 points off the lead in the Grand Tours I tend to write them off as there's almost no way of making it back up, it'll be fun to try and concentrate on one type of terrain  4
