So Stage 3,

Are there any surpise riders so far? Any riders that are a must have? And who has been the most dissapointing so far?

2 BALDWIN
3 MANCEBO
4 SCHAR

break away Beyer Schleck Westra Mannion only 10 secs but its a start.

Brought Jones in for today and have got Mancebo and Schleck. Transferred Westra out though.

Thanks for the update Stumps. Anyone know what time live feed starts?

If you go onto steephill then click onto the tour of Cali it will give you a list of live / delayed coverage.

Click onto the Amgen site and it gives a running account of whats happening and a map of the stage. It states that they go live at 2pm PST which is about 10pm our time.

There are no stupid questions, just stupid people.

I shouldn't have dropped Westra, but needed to to get Tejay in, so should be about even from Tejay and Deignans points. But he is in my purist team which is good. Need Matthews to do well today

Got Sagan in my purist, but not in normal because I got this stage arse about tit and didn't think it would be a sprint at all

Another podium badge Big Grin. Also happy to see Hushovd up there - I was regretting putting him in my purist team after the first 2 stages.

You gotta be kidding me! Stuyven let me down big time! Your gonna beat me by 6 points on the stage after your penalty points I think.

I said no transfers till the TT but may have to bring in Farrar in for Stuyven tomorrow

I'm never picking Farrar again. Angry

Luckily it worked out this time, but I always expect him to mess it up some how.
