If you haven't seen it elsewhere this is a heads up that Garmin have had all their bikes stolen and 'probably' won't start today's stage.

At this point in time there's no official confirmation on whether they'll start the stage or not so they're still in the game BUT Garmin riders are tweeting that they aren't going to ride so be aware of this.

Deadline for transfers is 11am UK time.

Also note, it is possible to make penalty transfers (extra transfer in addition to your usual two per stage) at a cost of 10 points per transfer.

JC Peraud wins.

Looks like Geniez got 4th so that mostly covers my penalty points.

Average day for me, I think. Had picked Peraud, but the only Izagirre and Roche in the top finishers. Can never remember how many points you get for GC; I also have Monfort and Boom.

Provisional scores updating at the minute. I may need to update them again once the official ones are released though.

Had 2 Garmin and too busy in the morning to even hear of it, although not sure if I would have taken a risk with pens or not. Luckily had Peraud, Roche and Monfort so 142 on 7 riders ain't bad. 5th on the stage is crazy. Had Taaramae as well so Purist down to 6. Sometimes I think these little races aren't really bothering with.

Bring on the Classics and some real racing!!

Know how Garmin feel though, had 3 bikes stolen in a month a couple of years back (Cambridge) and keep them all indoors now, which is a pain with 2 bikes in a narrow hallway.
