I would have had 5th too, but I didn't think he would make it over so had planned on bringing him in for stage 3, I will still do that anyway

He was a late inclusion in my team because I think he qualifies for the young rider competition.

I make it Traksel could well be last man home (although 3 riders may be missing from the results unless 3 teams only had 7 riders)

Also so much for De Gendt saying he was targeting top 10 on GC, loosing 18 minutes, at least that makes my Westra choice correct for both teams. Just need matthews to come good in the middle stages, and Jungels and Dennis to tear up the ITT

Do we still get points if the break is away for over half distance ?

That's only for one day races I believe.

Gkam, I know you need to do another update, but im confused by the scores.

Shouldn't it be this
Westra have 50 (35 win, + 10 GC, + 5 points) rather than 35,
Mancebo 43 (30 2nd, + 9 GC, + 4 points) rather than 32,
Sagan 36 (25 3rd, + 8 GC, + 3 points) rather than 29,
Meersman 29 (22 4th, + 5 GC, + 2 points) rather than 24,
Stuyven 30 (20 5th, + 4 GC, + 1 points, + 5 youth) rather than 26,
Rathe 25 (18 6th, + 3 GC, + 4 youth) rather than 22
Candelario 18 (26 7th, + 2 GC) rather than 16

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

Stage podium is for finishing in the top three fantasy teams for the stage. So, your team needs to have one of the highest three scores out of all the teams playing the stage to get that.

Also, yesterday was classed as a HM (High Mountain) stage and there isn't a badge for that, the King of the Mountain badge is for Summit Finishes only.
