Meersman
Gerrans
Cunego
Fonseca
Florencio
Charteau

3 riders gone out front

Rudy Molard (COF), Thomas Damuseau (ARG) and Arnaud Gérard (BSE). Their advantage is 35 seconds at km 25.

Kept it as the same, thought getting 3 in the top 10 wasn't too bad to be honest, including the youth jersey. Yes Gerrans finished 10 minutes down, however he is one of those riders where it doesn't matter what he did the stage before so could feature today, and today shouldn't be as tough as yesterday, so I hold out hope for Gavazzi too.

Valverde
Meersman
Gavazzi
Gerrans
Slagter
Voss
Fonseca
Berhane
and one other who I can' remember Thinking

I've kept it the same - sticking with my assertion that the finish could be fairly tough, and no obvious candidate to bring in. Its a case of fingers crossed for today/tomorrow and save up transfers for the TT...

I just bought Veilleux in for Hoogerland as I reckon he'll collect points today and tomorrow thanks to the GC/KOM/Pts classification......even if it looks like Damuseau will overtake him in the KOM class.

Just the kind of cheapo guaranteed pts I was hoping for freeing up a few more credits for the ITT.

I'm liking Samu and The Little Prince today but then I always do when I see a descent finish(Thor the big threat!!)

Froome
Kwiatkowski
Sanchez
Cunego
Veilleux
Fonseca
Fuglsang
Elissonde
Barhane

Thanks to my total lack of planning I've totally fluked 19th overall at the minute (scores of 145 and 127) and because I didn't make any changes I've picked up another 'High Roller' badge as I'm 9th in the purist league Big Grin

Don't know whether to start paying attention now I've had a good start and go for the win or just to keep winging it and see what happens.

Keep winging it because apparently trying to plan anything is like the 2nd week of the Giro .....
Took Meersman out so I'm now full on gambling another 20 point penalty for tomorrow and Wednesday for me

I blame you because I'm premium and can bank transfers which I was aiming to do but so far I've made 8 changes in two stages Surprise

I've made NO changes and its costing me big time.

I wasn't paying attention to this one, because I'm scoring this and setting up and scoring TdS....

Then I was setting up TdF Devil

I just need ONE GT stage this season to win something for all my hard work, because I am taking NO payment Nerd

I'm currently 24th overall, hoping for a good one 2moro to try and get that elusive high roller badge. Just wish I had froome the first day, would of been sorted.

Like many others, I've had a poor start. Brought in a sprint specialist(ish, anyway) quintet for tomorrow (cue three random domestiques on the podium), then will take a hit on the penalty points for the TT. Have to get Froome in for that.

I've not seen any of this race at all, just followed it a teeny bit on Twitter in spare moments at work. Still utterly clueless about who'll take GC; finger-in-the-air I'll pick Froome, but who knows?

Was so looking forward to this but the profiles have really thrown me...

In a state of utter confusion.... both standard and purist teams might just as well jump into a bath of EPO..and be done with it....

I did predict that the gloves wouldn't come off for the big boys until the ITT but hey....you'd have had to be Nostradamus(or perhaps Wig_Billy)to predict Veilleux and then Viviani!!

So....Riders beginning with V.....12 to choose from!!
