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.

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.
