Tour de Med starts with a 'flat stage'.  However, the stage is pretty bumpy for the first half and there's a real chance that some sprinters may get dropped if the peloton is going for it.

My team is sprint/climbing TTers split with

Griepel, Feillu, Oss, Turgot, Nizzolo, Navardauskas, Clement, Roy, Pauriol

and my Purist team is:

Voeckler, Talansky, Izagirre, Roy, Roux, Boom, Sicard, Pellizotti, Routley

So, hands up, who's picked Schleck?

*Hand shoots up*

I've got Schleck in purists(as discussed elsewhere with the good Doctor).

Standard:
Treated myself to the best sprinter in the peloton for stage one only but otherwise all solid guys I think so here goes...Greipel,Chaves,Talansky,Monfort,Mollema,Rogers,LeMevel,Pellizotti,Pauriol.

9.2 credits in reserve for replacing Greipel in stage 2.

Purist:
Montaguti,Mollema,Pellizotti,Schleck,Voeckler,Taciak,Taaramae(wrong age for him admins),Talansky,Duarte.

I make Talansky favourite for the overall win.

And Taaramae's withdrawn  31 Duque also

Routley,Vimpere and Vaubourzeix have 3'00" or so on the field.

1st cat climb result:

Col du Paradis - 1ère catégorie
1 Théo Vimpère (BigMat-Auber 93)
2 Thomas Vaubourzeix (La Pomme Marseille)
3 Will Routley (Accent Jobs-Wanty)
4 Garikoitz Bravo (Euskaltel-Euskadi)
5 Olivier Kaisen (Lotto-Belisol)

so, 5 points down to 1 for those riders.

Vimpere away on his own, Euskatel seem to have chased that 4th place pretty hard so we could see Bravo going after more points later on.

d_jp has a good point though, maybe some Lanterne Rouge points for you today.

Gap of 1'32" at 25km so it looks like it'll come back together for a Griepel win.

He's not terrible against the clock and the TT isn't particularly long so I think he tries to put in a good time and show off the leaders jersey. After that? Who knows.

Friday is a bumpy stage rather than hugely difficult and all the climbs are decent practice for the Tour and some of the classics like Milan-San Remo.

Ok, scores updating as I type. Have a look and let me know if you don't agree with anything.

Note, I haven't been able to find a combative rider prize award anywhere so haven't added the points in (even though you can guarantee they would go to Vimpere). If I spot a combative award anywhere I'll add it otherwise it'll have to stay out.

Success :D. I got the Stage Podium, High Roller & Podium badges. But I think there's been a mistake with the Podium badge because I only had 1st, 2nd & 4th. Has Nizzolo been credited with 3rd?
