I bought in the 2 KOM leaders Benedetti and Bravo for Roulston and Nizzolo and then used my 4 saved transfers to axe Cav,Impey,Hushovd and Goss in favour of Nibali,Mollema,J-Rod and Uran.

Uran
Nibali
Mollema
JRod
Benedetti
Bravo
VanAvermaet
Stybar
Dennis

I'll stick with that for stage 5 too barring disasters.

I thought Freddie K would have been riding for 'His Nibs' today? unless that's why he's gone up the road......more likely after the polka dot's though.Puts Astana in a strong position if Brajkovic and Tiralongo can shepherd Nibali into position and means they DON'T have to work.

1 and 6 on the stage, 1 and 4 on GC Thinking

Sagan in for Contador tomorrow and Kwit in for Pozz

Lagutin over poels in both teams was a mistake

Oops missed that, when I looked last night I must have opened up this years profile twice and thought they were the same

My purist team did ok. 3 and 4 on the stage and 1 and 3 on GC.

Standard not bad either, 1, 3, 6 on stage and 234 on GC. Should have had Horner or Poels instead of Cobo though, bad mistake! Still got some transfers in hand though!

Nice. I hadn't even noticed. 5th LR for me, and a 2nd KoM, and a 2nd Full House (in P-N) for me. Good day for badges. Less good for points.
