Majka did well. Gesink 11 or 12 I think but with some GC points.

Nibali and Evans looking strong! Reckon it could be between them now. Wiggins needs a miracle!

Same. I was going to bring in Majka but bottled it.

2,3,4,10 for me, with 2 more possibly in the top 20 - the 5 bonus points for Wiggins just about made it worth keeping him! Maybe an Evans/Wiggins transfer coming tomorrow...

Amazing season for Betancur so far - has he won a race yet? Remember at least 3 second places, plus good Ardennes classics.

3,4,5,7 and 15 standard
2,3,4,6,10 and 12 purist

Couple of decent ish scores but I'm annoyed Pellizotti didn't do better and Di Luca got dropped fairly early on the last climb.

Will probably get a decent score but drop some places because I reckon lots of people will have called this better than I did.

I did better on standard thanks to Betancur, but thats an excellent purist result you have there!

2,3,4,5 for me. Had traded out Uran and brought Evans in. Swings and roundabouts score-wise, but missed out on a couple of badges. Pantano I think my only non-scorer, so just missed Full House as well. Never mind.

My Colombians+J-Rod purist team will've had its first decent day today.

Many teams look very similar don't they?

For me just these different

Niemiec instead of Gesink.
Kelderman instead of Majka
Chalaput instead of Di Luca

Annoyed as I started with Majka and intended to run him for the whole game but he gave way for a sprinter and never got back in.

Where now though those two flat stages are tempting to take penalties for but how many?

134 standard and red arrows, 167 purist though moves me well up and into the top 50.

I'd be starting to think I had a chance in the purist if it wasn't for the fact that Billy is hovering about 15 points in front of me Angry

Yeah, pretty much Pirazzi and Di Luca vs Majka and Pantano.

Will be interesting to see how it works out and how long Majka can keep featuring in the GC group but ever since you posted your team in the other thread I've been kicking myself for missing Pirazzi, I think he's going to go bonkers one day to secure the mountains jersey and you'll leave me for dead.

Daniel Friebe tweeted (semi-seriously, I think) that Di Luca could threatan for the overall.

Not convinced...
