I have Garmin riders, but its a no for extra transfers, its called tough luck im afraid, its no different to a rider getting injured etc. those that haven't picked Garmin riders should not be disadvantaged by us being unfortunate

Again luck of the draw, you can take the 10 point penalty and still make a transfer, which is what im considering

I have Talansky and Navardauskas but TERatcliffe is right, its the risk you take making transfers early, people drop out late, its annoying but that's the way it goes sometimes.

I'll be making penalty transfers, at least they 10 pts each this year and not 20.

Bit the bullet and made 4 penalty transfers.

Figured with -20 points today was a write off anyway so what's another 20 point penalty? Got my team exactly how I want it for the rest of the race now.

Arse. Already had Talansky and brought in Dan Martin last night. Oh well, given my crap Tour Med so far, 20 penalty points isn't going to make much difference  2
