I'm opening up with

Porte
Sanchez
Gilbert
Cunego
Fuglsang
Txurruka
Gerrans
Gasparotto
Ratto

Purists:Contador,Sanchez,Landa,Gerrans,Herrada,Cobo,Martin,Cunego,Porte

Got to say that I think Cunego's the real bargain in this race?

I think Choo-Choo in the opening break was the most obvious of the season so far  4

Plus Landa's out there for my purists  4 4

Hmm interesting on Cunego Ray, he never really factored in for me, had I wanted just 1 sprinter and not 2 then he would have slotted into my purists quite nicely. I spent the extra 4 credits and went with Quintana

My standard team is set up for a sprint finish amongst the strong men, Ratto is my tip for days 1 and 2 after his performance in fridays 1 day race. Then I will have 4 transfers to set me up for the summit finishes

Impey
Ratto
Vichot
Wegmann
Cardoso
Fuglsang
Spilak
Talansky
Contador

Purists has a decent balance between potential winners for each of the first 4 stages, a possible breakaway and a some guys that can put in a decent ITT

Talanksy
Porte
Peraud
Sanchez
Quintana
Spilak
Cummings
Ratto
Impey

The break has been caught.
1st mountain result :

Txurruka (202 - Caja Rural),
Didier (42 - RadioShack),
Hernández (93 - Saxo -Tinkoff)
Zaugg (96 - Saxo - Tinkoff)

although biciclismo are reporting Didier as Busche so take your own best guess which is which  1

PCS say Clarke then Talansky but Eurosport had that pretty cool finish line camera shot so maybe its still being all 'worked out'?

Enjoyed seeing Samu and Cunego fly downhill to almost catch the front group......I had envisaged them doing that for the actual 1-2.

That would be handy for my purist team, but that would mean 15 non-finishers
