Not so bad after all. No Santambrogio, but still five riders in the points included Nibali and Betancur. Wonder how long it'll take for all the points to be worked out?

Santambrogio now up to fourth in GC. A podium finish would be extraordinary for him and his team.

1,2,3 on standard and Purist is nice. think everyone else had Nibbles and Uran too, so it comes down to who got the best "bit parts". I have Majka, Pellizotti and Niemec so reasonably happy with that.

Feel sorry for poor Battaglin he has served me well, wish hime a speedy recovery, one to watch in the future, and that is another of my purists gone! Starting to look a bit depleted my team there now.

1,2,3,5,6,11,15 & a team bonus for Di Luca, plus GC and the jerseys. I think I come out with 215.

All in all a much better day on here than I had on my bike today.

Would have been 219 for me but 50 penalty points have knocked me down again. It probably would have been worth it if tomorrow had gone ahead but if it gets cancelled or they lose the summit finish that'll really screw me over.

Dave, are the badges still updating? Think I'm missing a couple from today but they usually update quite quickly.

Edit: scratch that, they're there now. Got a couple and now only one decent stage from 10k Big Grin

212, would have been 222 had I not needed a penalty transfer, back up to 86th and considering Ive had some rather poor stages, to still be only 221 off the lead is good.

On another note ive reached 10k Big Grin

Crap day today, completely meesed up the stage and ended up with 133. Very poor.

Ditto. 4 badges in one day is quite good although nearly everyone had more or less the same riders. Noticed you've been creeping up on me and are now a little ahead. Looks like our battle of last year is back on.

Just the three badges for me but assuming that tomorrow's Giro stage goes ahead I'm pretty confident of hitting 10k (might even manage it tonight).

So far I've made 20 penalty transfers (-200 points) and I'm 78th, 209 points behind the leader.

I'm not saying that by any means I'd be nearer the top of the table if I hadn't made those transfers but I think it's potentially a valid tactic to use. It all depends on how varied the stages are. For the Tour it may work better to throw in penalties before 3 or 4 days of similar terrain. The Giro has just been too varied and unpredictable to make it work consistently.

All a bit too easy and predictable today! 200+ points and 330th on the stage!
1,2,3,4 for my purist though, I bet that doesn't happen all that often in grand tours!

Very happy galibier still going ahead, even if 4k shorter. Will the break make it? Thinking
