No idea how this race is going to go but today looks flat enough so I'm throwing 9 sprinters at my team and seeing what sticks. No Sagan but I've got:

Bouhanni
Kristoff
Kittel
Boonen
Gallopin
Breschel
Appollonio
Fortin
Iglinsky

Picked my team early due to work commitments and checked this moring to find my puris team has only 3 riders  14 with the rest not racing. Mind you one of them is Stamsnijder so will get something today.

My standard team lost 4 for todays stage.

Thats me knackered for the whole season with the same happening in the tour of med.

Thanks for the updates, very handy!
I couldn't not choose Sagan, although I have a feeling Viviani might be going for it today.

My standard team...
Sagan
Degenkolb
Bouhanni
Van Avarmaet
Bennati
Appollonio
Goddaert
Mezgec
Devolder

Purist team is similar so it won't be scoring many points on stage 4...

That's why I didn't pick Sagan, I assumed Viviani would be protected sprinter and Sagan would be just getting some miles in as part of his build up to the Classics.

I cant see Viviani making it to the finish in the lead group tomorrow

However after Viviani's spectacular no show last week, will they trust him, at least Sagan is abit like Cav and wont need a leadout to get decent position

Mother fudger, I took out Kittle, Appollonio and Bouhanni lastnight  14

I'll get on the scores, but pretty sure there is no KOM classification so that wont be scored  3

Correct no KOM, but there is Combative award, surely 10 points for Traskel

Podium badge  16

1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 7

Gallopin, Breschel and Iglinsky not reported so doubtful I'll get full house but surely 6 of the top 7 nets me a top 10 place on the stage?

And quite Possibly the stage!

I need Sagan and Van Avermate to have come 11th and 12th

Love to know how many had Goddaert though
