1,2,4 for me pleased with that after all the uncertainty on how to play it.

1,2,3 Cool

Sticking with my guys pays off again.

Annoyingly Mezgec scored again though, really missed out on that one.

Talk of Snow tomorrow and changes to the climbs.

Keep an eye on the news as race could be rerouted.

The profiles for this race have been rubbish. I looked at them a while back on the official site, It looked like a climbers tour....why are the sprinters still there Angry Angry

Best keep an eye on tomorrow, unfortunately I'm likely to still be in bed at half 9 tomorrow when the deadline passes so I may make some transfers tonight and then adjust in the morning (if I'm awake).

Its only the second string sprinters who can climb Gkam....although I have to agree the profiles on all sites have been somewhat misleading....The prologue profile was much tougher than it looked, where as the stages themselves have rode a little easier than they looked...
Fingers crossed that they dont change tomorrows route.... Confused

What a flippin joke! 3 days running no one in the top 20!
As for Cav what was the point in him doing this tour? Roll on the Giro....

He's prepping his mountain legs, ready for the Giro. The sprint legs are (presumably) ok.

Thanks! I have no confidence going into tomorrow, though. 3 transfers for it but who to go for?!

150 for me, best on the tour so far. Only silly old Anthony Charteau, the king of Gabon, kept me from a full house badge.
