Balls, my transfers were based on the fact that Sagan and Greipel wouldn't score much today and Sagan goes and finishes 7th!? He'll get knocked down a few spots but he should still top 20 Angry

Dumoulin (Tom) going well, TJVG 2nd at the first check.

EDIT: Dumoulin 5th at the finish, a very good result. TJVG dropped to 14th at the second check. Porte starting soon.

1,3,6 so far, with Chavanel and Froome to come, hopeful for my least worst TT in a while. Be interesting to see how Porte goes - he's out next...

Tejay coming in fast - its funny we all know how good he is in the TT but I bet hardly anyone picked him!
EDIT - see Tejay's fallen away - so we were right to avoid him - thought so! Thinking

Kwiatkowski should take back the White Jersey, he's put 2 minutes into Quintana today.

1,2,5,6 on my 4 TT transfers, sweet enough. very impressive by froomedog today, smashed his GC rivals, + strong by kwiatkowski to take back the white- and Sagan gets a strong 17th!! how long before we see him contend for GC's? at least 1 week long one. next year?

1,2,5. Disappointed by Rui Costa. Fair play to Sagan, though - very creditable 17th. Going to make all my transfers for the next three stages, save some for Ventoux.

Any had much luck getting a full-house badge this tour, yet? Always seem to have at least one rubbish DS that I can't get rid of... Nerd

Full house will be really hard to get this tour because you're practically forced into having filler. Unless you get lucky and have your cheap riders in a break you're stuffed.

Dave, scoring criteria says 5 point team bonus is awarded on the stage but I only got 3 points for Cav, think he needs a bonus Big Grin

Kwiatkowski should keep white until Sunday now. Will we be seeing three sprints this week, or will they let a break go one day? Might take a penalty tomorrow, and then hopefully bank transfers til Sunday. The rest of this week is all about resisting the urge to tinker!

OK, I am taking FIVE (5) penalties for tomorrow!

Complete team re-think, that'll set me up for the next three stages (I know 14 is MM, but I reckon it'll come down to a (select) bunch sprint at the finish.

Nope, for two winners its normally a coin toss.

For 5, it will be a coin toss competition.... Devil

OR, even easier for Dave, would be the roll of a dice Wink

In the event of a tie, the following criteria, where applicable, will be used to determine the winner:

- Highest single stage score posted within the competition
- Most scoring riders on the stage
- Highest scoring individual rider on the stage
- Coin toss

I was only 'pulling your puddin' Boss LOL

The game sends e-mails to my work e-mail which I registered under and as I start at 7am it's normally my first hours 'work' to pick my team.....but had tuesday and wednesday off and that's where it all went wrong.

Oh well that's 133 pts I'll never see again(would have been good enough for 61st on the stage)....That'll teach me!!!
