Stage 5 under way and there's already a break of 6 up front:

- Sicard (EUS)

- Arashiro and Reza (EUC)

- Lutsenko (AST)

- De Gendt (VCD)

- Delaplace (SOJ)

I brought in Greipel, Kittel and Van Poppel last night dropping EBH, Millar and Amador.  Hoping that some of the sprinters can stick it out and that Cav is still suffering from his illness.

Hopefully we are now arriving at the bit that really pisses Enrique off......

I have gone all in on the sprinters
Cavs
Kristoff
Kittel
D Van Pops
Favilli
with Gerrans and Kwiatowski for overall points

Couple of no hopers to fill in.

looking at the early breakaways considered all of those names and put none of the in. Arashiro was a name well up my list, disappointed If he makes it all the way.

Although I have bought kittel in I can see it suiting Sagan Rojas and Gavazzi more due to it being so rolling plus the final climb seems to be a bit of a pig as the top is quite steep , still you could see a break stick  7

Played it cagey and worked out OK - Had Sagan and Kristoff, plus GC points for Gerro, Albo and Kwiato. Nearly brought in Greipel for a 10-pt pen, but that would only have got me about 6 more points. 2 sprinters in for Kwiatowski and ALbasini tomorrow (probably...)

Will drop Chava for Cav tonight and possibly bring in Kristoff too. Kittel dissapointed but got taken down in a crash 15km from the finish so that was just bad luck. Will be keeping Greipel.

Not too bad. At least Gerrans and D van Poppel got a few points. Bit too tough for Kittel or was it Degenkolb's turn. Bringing in Greipel for Kwia wouldn't have made any points with a pen (and I haven't needed to make one of those yet). Going to save some transfers now. Team reasonable for next couple of days, then all change.

Average day for my actual team. I'd dropped EBH, but had Sagan, Kristoff, Gerrans and El Fares, plus a few crumbs of jersey points from Kwiatkowski.

No changes for tomorrow, or the day after (barring withdrawals).

Good day for my cycling news (Halford's game as was) team: 1,2,3,4 and 6. You can pack them in in that game!! And there's a decent prize for the wheelsucker mini-league. Anyone else a member of that?

Well that was S***. Made 20 pointer penalty and ended up with 67 points.

Came in something like 4000th and dropped over 400 places.

Stage win now is all i can get from this tour, really disapointed  2

I'd had Navardauskas in for the first four stages to no avail, then swapped to Kittel as well...

Considering my transfers and I don't think I'm going to make any.

I wanted to bring in Cav but with Greipel already I'd have to drop either Chavanel and Kwaitkowski (so I can bring in Kristoff) or Chava and someone like Gerrans bringing in Cav and a cheap rider.

Either way I don't think it's worth it given that Chava/Kwiat got 28 points yesterday so including future transfers Cav would need to score 40 odd points today and Kristoff another 15-20 just to break even.
