What are we expecting today then? I had a very sprint-biased team yesterday which obviously didn't work out too well, so have taken a ten-point hit, but still not really much of an idea who will do well.

Brought in Westra, and Tejay, and someone I didn't expect to go for all season - Andy Schleck - who looked fairly comfortable and interested yesterday.

Still have 4 sprinters though, so won't be a good day - expecting to lose my 2nd place in the Forum Scorum's league tonight! (And then take it back tomorrow with an 80-point solo win from Wauters in the Giro. Maybe.)

Another break to be reeled in then the same as yesteday as they climb to the finish line. I expect the same faces in roughly the same places as well.

Oh man! Was just about to ask if anyone had gone chavanel today. I fancied him for the break-away. He won a not too similar stage from the bunch in Paris nice, so can climb, and he lost 9 mins yesterday- plus opqs have no GC contenders- working for meersman in sprints. But wasn't convinced he had the condition, and expensive at 26+!
Drats
At least I put a fiver on him at 80/1 with paddy power  4

My standard

TJ
Westra
Mick rogers
Zabriskie
Mancebo
Schlecky
Sagan
Matthews
Hushovd

10 penalties incurred.

Gkam is always online. He was hoping someone else might take up the coverage today, but its cool. I am on it.

4 riders in the break with 5.30 on the peloton
Chavanel
McCartney
Zwiwansky
Jacques-Maynes

Best placed is Mccartney at only 16 seconds down on the GC.

MY guy Bobbie Traskel had a go at getting to the break, but is still hanging out just 1 minute up on the peloton

Well done. Didn't have the guts to go chava, nor the knowledge to go McCartney.

Had Chavanel in from the start, almost took a ten point pen to swop him for de Gendt.

Well, lucky me. I logged in at 7pm, to find the deadline passed at 6.15pm. 4 transfers tomorrow. Here's hoping Sagan and Gilbert fight it out and I won't move any further down.

50k to go gap at 6.10.

Watching it on the Amgen website, the road they are on looks bloody brilliant, oh for downhill stretches like that over here.
