Gavazzi for the win? Had Impey down for this one, but tactics may be completely down to protecting Gerrans now.

Impey and Gavazzi for me, and fingers crossed for my man Egoitz Garcia...

I predict the same as yesterday, high pace throughout with most of the sprinters getting dropped before the run in to the line.

Well thats what i hope as i've picked my team without any sprinters in.  13

ive kept with my sprinters, Impey, Vichot, Wegmann, Ratto, Cardoso in hope, as this is the only stage they have a chance in. Plus im gonna need my 4 transfers for tomorrow

Wrong Cardoso, Manuel Cardoso is the sprinter, the one in this race (Andre) I believe is the climber of the two...

I have also made no changes, stuck to Impey, Gilbert, Albasini (who lost a load of time yesterday and may try for a break), Ratto and Geschke. Will probably use a couple of penalty transfers tonight and gut my team completely.

Oh well, he is in my team, so maybe he can do something tomorrow then, should have brought Txurruka in, given up on this race already haha

Thanks Ray - Orica have been good to me recently. Impey in was a last-minute transfer, so happy with that! Might be considering some penalty points for tomorrow now...

Oooh, I predicted the 1-2. Pity I bailed on Impey, so will have to make do with 2nd, 4th and a few others.

Ah, unlucky. The commentators were struggling, thought it was Matthews all the way until about 2 mins after the finish, and said Kreder was Fernandez. They basically just see the jersey and take a guess most of the time - which I guess is pretty much all they can do!
