Go!

Not telling anyone who I've picked till the window's closed, but I've taken a few risks on this one. Anyone else got anything they want to say?

I don't dare, well I do, I had already brought in Di Luca and Pellizotti...

Tempted to take a punt on a certain garmin rider.

Cav said he wont be competing in 17, gotta work out if he is bluffing on that yet  39

I think it's a sprint, Cavs has been climbing well and he'll want to keep the red jersey. Probably go, Benetti, Belletti and Modolo too.  13

I Am Doing My Usual Italian transfer. Nibali might win The Race Downhill.
It Wont Be a Sprint. There. I said it. I think a Break Will Stay Away And The Sprinters Will Give up.

Its a long way home after the 1st cat but will the sprinters teams want to chase it down or will they want to keep their powder dry for stage 17, a dead cert for a sprint.

My selections have been shite so far so i'm keeping my team set for the mountains then change for stage 17.

Yeah, day for a break. 2 in, 2 transfers saved. There's someone on home turf who may be worth looking at...  3

All these frustratingly cagey comments.

Well I may have made some transfers. Or I may not. There.

I have made transfers... four of 'em.

Seriously seriously considered Cav, but in the end didn't go for him. Instead gone for punchy folk in good form who can haul over those initial climbs and stay away.

I have kept some of the GC types though, as transfer-wise I have a plan (that probably won't work) to get the most out of the ITT.

Oh, and I also brought in an Italian (not Di Luca). May regret once again not selecting Mezgec.

Yes I know! the break will probably stay away, can't a guy have a little fun on the forum these days?

Di Luca, Nizzolo (for tomorrow),Mezgec, Fellini or just save them for tomorrow. Still not sure.

Question please:

As a non premium player I have 4 transfers today, if I do not use any will I get 6 tomorrow or will I lose 2 of them?

you can only bank a maximum of four. so tomorrow you'd have four

Not making any transfers today, don't really know how the stage will play out and if I save my transfers I get 8 tomorrow so I'll make 5 then another 5 ahead of the TT.

Hopefully I win both stages and shoot up the table just so I can annoy enrique.

Likewise today...no transfers....Too difficult to call this one....Not sure that a break will be allowed to go all the way....

Yeah, happier to bank the transfers and just hope my guaranteed GC and other standing points give me a reasonable score.

It also helps that I already have two or three possibles for the break though.

yea likewise, think my team is pretty solid for today, difficult to call. Keep banking them transfers for next couple of days!

couldnt help myself, did 2 transfers.i think a break away makes it, and if not then we are looking at a couple of guys making it stick over last hill and/or a 20/40 strong group contesting the final. in which case the gc guys can score top 20 points... But put 2 transfers in anyway , with a watchful eye to tomorrow, which is not 100% guarranteed sprint, in my eyes....

I know the smart move is to bank transfers, but predicting the break on a day like giday is much more fun!

Took the risk of Navadauskas for Niemiec, may live to regret that one, but as its a flat finish I can't see Niemiec scoring many finish line points anyway
