Wish I had not experimented with my purist team, it has 8 sprinters and now not worth watching, gonna try something different in Dauphin.

I've been there, so did the opposite in Tirreno and my non-sprint team scored zero yesterday! But at least the weekend should be more exciting...

In fairness we don't know JTLs schedule. If he's aiming at the classics or later in the season then why would he be ripping it up in this race?

Jens Voigt I wonder how many times he has been shouting "Shut up legs" today?
What a machine.

Transferred Porte in last night, turned out nice again. That's three stage winners out of five this week.

Didn't put Talansky in though. Plonker.

Netted a cracking 171 after bringing in Porte and Péraud. Cool

Now with 1,2,3,4,6 on GC in my squad, transfers for tomorrow should be a breeze!

Bloody mr Menchov, stopped me getting 1-2-3, mind you 1,3,4 is still canny plus 12 and 15.

Useless at the scores so i have no idea what that will add upto including gc points but i think about 150ish Big Grin

There are no stupid questions, just stupid people.

194 including 10 penalty points. Unfortunately those 10 points were for my Hivert -> Gesink transfer so I'm -20 ish on that, it also cost me my full house badge Angry

Only 4 points off the top 10 so that's my aim for this tour now, that and retaining the lead in the Forum Scorum comp Big Grin

I would have tied the stage had my transfer been to bring in Porte not Velits so a little gutted

Dave, I think the scores are out, JTL appears to have been given a 5 point bonus for Porte's win but I don't think he finished the stage, should he get that?
