It's the 'Decider' obviously but.....with what's to come is it worth taking Sagan out?

Some say yes he lost so much time last season that his GC,Points and Youth pts will be wiped out?

Others will look at stages 5/6 and say he could score huge pts there?

anyway my team is this:
Sagan
His Nibs
Bertie
Elmiger(a revelation so far)
Jeannesson(my idea of stage winner)
Dempster(wildcard)
Pasqualan
Marcato
DiCorrado

If I could have wangled Cataldo in I would have but hey....there's the breaks.

Made 7 transfers, still no Sagan for me, I expect he could keep up if the proper climbers went easy but as soon as someone like Nibali puts the hammer down I think he'll get dropped.

Contador
Froome
Nibali
Gallopin
Velits
Jeannesson
Traksel
Jiao
Iglinksiy

I was hoping to make up lost points on my normal team today but I think everyone pretty much has the same riders so I don't think there'll be much movement, my only hope is that I'll have 1 or 2 more of the top guys than others because I saved transfers.

I considered bringing in Froome for Sagan, looks like I should have done.

Fingers crossed that Eurosport and the governing body can sort out their differences pretty quick....this game is hard enough to predict..... without seeing any live coverage to see how peoples legs are turning.....it borders on the impossible at times....30 mins the next day is not enough for an amateur fantasist like me...  20

2, 4, 5 & 9 on the stage 1, 3, 4 & 10 on GC, I make that 110 plus some extra young rider/points points. I'd say that's probably going to drop me further down as a few teams are likely to have the likes of Evans, Tschopp and Elissonde so outscoring me by another 80 points or so.

Oh well...

2,4,5 will do, but should have taken a pen on Jeannesson rather than Velits, who was a big disappointment, might drop a place in the overall methinks  20

Pffff... another stinker. Just Bert and Voss in the top 20, and Bert in GC (who knows, maybe picked up one or two odd points elsewhere). My Purist team (no great shakes itself) has vastly outperformed the standard. Eyes on Algarve now.

Ok, I'm off to do the scores, but they may be delayed because I have an appointment with the bank manager at half past 2 to discuss a charity bank account  4
