So what will happen?

Just trying to work that out. I guess there's still a chance that it could go ahead but I'll post something later on explaining what we're going to do with it.

OK, decision made, the stage will proceed within the game but no points will be awarded. Once the race is underway its not possible to change or delete a stage so we're stuck with it how it is.
What this means is that its similar to a rest day HOWEVER you'll get two lots of two transfers, the first two running out once the deadline passes in the morning, the second two becoming active once stage 3 is 'underway'.
Its not ideal, but it'll have to do.

That sounds like the best option to me. I assume stage 3 transfers can still be carried over?

Yes, due to "logistical problems". Fancied Voeckler for it, myself. Or Pinot.

Reports suggest an issue with security or local police last the stage finish that couldn't be resolved.
If you don't make changes then yes, they should carry over.

I'm gonna save my transfers and do them for stage 4, just incase a few riders jump ship!

This gives everyone a Lanterne Rouge badge, doesn't it? Is there any way to alter that, and make us earn it?

It shouldn't, you only get the LR badge if you pick the last man home on a stage and he has to score 10 points for last man home for the badge to be awarded

Last man home is a specific scoring category added to the database, if you don't add a score to that column nobody is listed as LR therefore as nobody scored ANY points nobody should get the LR badge for yesterday.
