for Ventoso and Evans

Might be a stage too early to dump Viviani?

Shame, decided to go for a wildcard for the break today but went Phinney over Bak - silly really with the BMC boys probably being kept back to support Cadel. Another bad decision - hope the break doesn't go to the end!

Having said that, if it does go to the end, that might limit my losses as not many teams will score big.

Bak won the stage exactly 12 months ago to the day!

Why oh why did Bouhani leave me with a grey spot in the team? I can only hope it will not be a real sprint day then...

i made only one change, nibali for bouhanni ahead of tomorrow.
Looks like the bunch wants to contest the sprint, reeling in that break hard.

2:46 with 95+ km to go

I made a couple of changes today, I hadn't planned so I would have 7 for tomorrow, but it leaves me with 5 to get some climbers back in

Rule 1, never pick Matthew Goss.

Cav takes it, Viviani and Nizzolo there or there abouts too.

Lancaster was sprinting for GreenEdge which suggests Goss was dropped.

Phew! Not picking Mezgec today was stubbornness verging on masochism, but got 1st and 5th, which is better than I was expecting. And a few quid on Cav at 10/1 was a good call for a change!

1,2,5,19 and Laterne Rouge. Think my only non-scorer was Di Luca. Cav, Nizzolo and Viviani defo out tomorrow for Nibali, Santambrogio and Uran. Penalty points to take out Gavazzi or Battaglin for Niemiec or Pirazzi. May leave Battaglin in as I think s17 is nailed on for him.

Already made my seven transfers (50 penalty points). Sticking to the plan of making whatever changes I need to get the team I want for any given stage.

Currently just inside the top 40 after a good day but unless I have an amazing day tomorrow I doubt I'll move up tomorrow purely thanks to all those damn penalty points.

Can't wait to see what Uran digs out tomorrow - but I'm wondering what's going to happen on stage 15 now that apparently the Galibier is closed due to snow.

Full House,Sprinter and Lanterne Rouge(is Gavazzi doing this on purpose?) badges for me......131pts and a 157place jump up the Giro standings(albeit still way back in 547th).

4 transfers for tomorrow. Thinking
