Wiggo might enjoy another peak finish today, but sky might do better if he acts as lead out man for rigoberto, if he can sprint better... so I should pick lopez if I do my usual fantasy pick strategy.  44

Left out Purito! another dodgy decision as I know he is probably going to win on home turf, but the temptation of the young Frenchie after yesterday was too much, will probably be quietly weeping tonight! My other baby garcons had a bad day yesterday.  7

I had the wrong 2 French Revolutionaries too but found it impossible to bring Pinot in and keep Purito and Valverde.

Just the one transfer today....Domagalski in for Agnoli hoping that he goes for a few more mountain pts today.

My Standards(starting the day in 8th for La Volta)

Elissonde
Jeannesson
Valverde
J.Rodriguez
Quintana
Salerno
Meier
Nocentini
Domagalski

I've stuck with the expensive trio, so no need to spend time deciding who else might do well as I don't have the funds anyway. Brought in Quintana for Meersman, which in hindsight I should have done yesterday as a penalty transfer - tactical error!

Wiggins, J-Rod, Valverde, Quintana
Salerno, Priedler, Landa, Betancurt, Poulhies

6 of the above are also in my purists, so hoping for another good day today...

Yes, cat 1 climbs should be awarding for top 9 so it'll be 9 fantasy points down to 1.

Today is cat 3, 1, 2 and hors cat followed by an hors cat summit finish. Not sure how many are scored on the hors cat.

My Spanish ain't great - but I don't like the sound of some of these words...

@alejanvalverde y @eroscapecchi -también caído- abandonan la #VoltaCatalunya. El incidente no parece revestir consecuencias graves.

ooh, if thats true then its a massive blow for Moviestar.

Valverde looked good yesterday and was going to pick him but just couldn't get the funds together.

Could be good for you Stumps, as a lot of teams will have Valverde. Could also be good for Quintana's licence to attack again later...

Very true, mind you i think Quintana is in better form and is the real danger for Wiggins and Rodriguez.

Glad i've got all 3 now  4

Ouch...Valverde abandons.

Most will transfer his credits straight to Wiggo or Scarponi I reckon but there may be value in spreading them over 2 20-25 rated guys?

so if agnoli/valverde have abandoned, thats a bad day for me...come on Salerno, pick up my points.
Can I afford to swap valverde for jrod? Probably not...
