Through luck rather than judgement I only want/need to make one change. Tempted to bring Santambrogio back in though but would need to take out either Wiggins or Evans to afford him so not sure its worth it just yet.

I cracked... decided to make another two changes (just couldn't resist). Question is, who do I drop? Wiggins or Evans?

If the weather forecasts I've been looking at are correct, it's a no-brainer - Wiggins. Thunderstorms.

He's the obvious choice i suppose but was also thinking maybe Gatto?  26

No penalties for me - Pirazzi and Santambrogio in for Phinney and Bole. In terms of backyards, I have Visconti and 2 Vini's. Would've liked Rabottini so put a couple of quid each way on him instead. (After a great start, my Giro betting "scam" is back down to break-even after Wiggins' bike change etc yesterday - dammit).

Yea just went premium and you dont, as its my first comp only missed out on Sprinter and Stage Podium, hopefully shouldnt be too hard to do again.
although nearly had a Full House on stage 7.

Hoping for a big attacking day today  4

I hope they didn't charge you twice for bringing Intxausti out and in again!

And now we have the names:
Pirazzi, Visconti, Garate, Felline, Chalapud, Pantano, Mestre, Belkov, Golas, Ludvigsson, Proni, Petrov.

They have 1:30, so it looks like this group is it!

Livesrongnick isn't gonna be happy!!

No, I've got three of those in my team. They don't have a chance.

I bought a GC guy(Gesink) and a breaks/KOM guy(Sella) in for Durbridge and the disappointing Kiserlovski.

Visconti(in the break-current KOM leader)
Kelderman(current maglia bianchi)
Wiggins(coming out for Nibali next stage)
Gesink(cue crash!!)
Sella(2nd on KOM...thought he might try today)

plus these in since the start

Puccio
Aru
Oliveira
Haas

Three break-men in my squad! And I'm guessing Pirazzi and Visconti are going to be sprinting for the summits. Relief!
