I took a 30-pt hit, went riskier than you so could be losing more ground today!

Six the same as you, but no Uran, Battaglin or Niemiec - instead I have 3 guys that I'm hoping will get in the break today or tomorrow. Don't plan to make any more changes until Tuesday morning...

I'm figuring Pirazzi,Pozzovivo and Pelizotti?

with Wiggins gone, will they totally be behind Uran now, does this mean Henao wont be allowed to attack??

Looks like a lot of very very very similar teams today. The penalty points might decide it. All I'm saying is I have taken no penalty points (sorry enrique) and I 'm praying Gavazzi is not outside the time limit  17

With tomorrow's stage cut to just 50k a break may be difficult.

Pretty annoyed they're planning on shortening tomorrow's stage, means my 50 penalty points probably weren't worth it and with one less mountain top finish its likely today with get crazy with lots of teams looking to get a summit finish stage win.

So nobody thinks Scarponi might make a move, then?

Not bad - pirazzi,weening and atapuma! Shame about tomorrow but a 50k stage won't be easy to predict so i'm happy to give them a go!

It's still taking in the Col Du Telegraph so it's not like it'll be a 50k Crit?

Glad I saved my transfers for this morning. I was wondering whether to bring in Pirazzi, but there's not enough mountain points available now (cue him winning the stage).

Uran
Evans
Nibali
Pozzovivo
Betancur
Santambrogio
Chalapud
Mourey
Gavazzi

Mmmm. I took him out for Niemiec and a ten point penalty - bit of a rush of blood I think

Garzelli was targeting today for a win. Wonder whether the route change has altered that.

Well done sir, and that's the difference with everyone else- you squeezed in pozzovivo who looks good for top 5. I thought about taken 10 penalties and swap him with pirazzi last night, but thought the pirate would be in the break so not worthwhile- should have waited till this morn! Grrr
