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!

No breakaway points today?

Being in a breakaway 10 points for each rider in a breakaway of ten riders or less that's more than one minute ahead of the peloton at the halfway stage in a race.

Another decent day for my purist team I think (2,8,10,11 + wiggins)

At least my Di Luca (10 penalty points) for Ludivgsson wasn't as bad as it looked like being at one point.

But on the whole its gonna be more red arrows! Pirazzi for Visconti and Evans for Hesjedal for tuesday me thinks

117 standard, 135 purist. Very happy with my purist team, up nearly 400 places today and my standard team is in the top 100.

Rest day tomorrow then two big mountain stages, is anyone going to keep Wiggins in or will you be bringing in someone like Hesjedal/Scarponi? Can Wiggins do anything, and how will Evans deal with the big hills?

I think I'll be dropping Evans and picking up some mountain goats.

Keeping Wiggins in, his luck cant get any worse !

Problem i've got is do i keep Gesink in or get rid for Henao ??????

I took a 60 point penalty to sort my team out after the TT, scored 100...so ended up with 40, but at least my team is in a fit state to start going for a stage win

Can someone explain to me how these achievements work for premium members...
So I had Westra in my team for Tour of California, and he won the first stage, but i didn't get an achievement, should i not have gained the following?

that refers to your team coming top 3 on the day, i.e scoring 150 points makes you 3rd on the day. you should get a stage win badge though, the sprint one
there's also the podium badge that you get for predicting the 1-2-3 on any given stage
