NetAPP-Endura
IAM
Vaconsoleil

Katusha
GreenEdge
OPQS
FDJ
Sky
BMC

Eisel could be in Gold tonight if SKY beat RSN and take 6 seconds outof BMC....a big ask as for me BMC and RSN are the two best TTT teams here with the 2 best TT'ers in Phinney and Spartacus.

Results up top, not sure how they'll sort out (and how Gkam will score) those teams with the same times.

Good runs from FDJ and very impressive from BMC, time to drop the sprinters and pick up riders like Phinney?

47 points for me + 7 for GVA being 4th on GC so 54, how will that stand up Thinking I reckon leading score will be about 85

Greenedge will be 7th, FDJ 8th as Greenedge crossed the line first (I believe)

I dont think so, as I still think we will have bunch sprints and although Phinney may lead etc, is it value to guarantee 14 points? presuming he doesn't contest the sprint Thinking

I've got 2 riders from each of the top 3 teams plus an RSN,Greenedge and Astana so 70 on placings plus 1st,4th and 7th on GC 1st and 4th in Points Competition and zilch in the youth competition.

I make that 98 points.....not bad at all.

Plus, as far as I can tell...

EBH @ 15"
Thomas @ 15"
Hayman @ 15"
Rowe @ 15"

So 5 BMC and 5 Sky in the top 10 GC

Just updating scores now.

FDJ are ahead of Greenedge.....

Also, you won't be getting a FULL HOUSE shield, even if all your riders score. That would just be to easy Devil Devil

83 (standard) and 59 (purist) today, fairly happy seeing I was generally just ignoring this stage.

What's the thought for tomorrow? Proper sprint or something similar to Monday, and how will the likes of Phinney/Eisel fare?

I think I'm going to go back to my stage 1 team of strong sprinters and hope that the finish resembles a bunch sprint more than it did on Sunday.
