Ok, getting in early doors as am out riding in the AM.

I'm going flat out (as it were) for a bunch sprint. My team (from memory, I'm doing this from me mobile) are:

Sagan
Cav
Kittel
Willems
D. Van Poppel
Lobato
Bonnet
El Fares
Kristoff

So a big hedge on Greipel not winning the stage. I happen to think this one's for Cavendish - but what about youse lot?!

I think Cav will be very fired up after the last couple of days. Made 6 transfers (4 pens).
All out sprint team but no Sagan again  39

Sagan and Griepel rather than Cav for me. He just doesn't seem as interested now that Sagan has such a big lead.

3 pens - normally not my preferred tactic so feels a bit wrong!

Sagan, Greipel, Kristoff, Kittel, Dumoulin, Bonnet plus 3

3 pens for me too

Sagan, Greipel, Cav, Kittel, Bonnet + 2 others and 2 greyed out. No changes for the next 3 stages so I can make 6 for sundays stage.

Looks like the best result for me would be a DVP, Sagan, Cav 1-2-3 as those are the riders most seem to be missing one of.

Most likely a Cav win, Sagan second and DVP somewhere in the top 5 would be great.

Yesterday's deadline fiasco(my fault....I know!!)has left me with a TT team for the sprints and I'm loathe to make it worse with penalties so:

Froome
Kwiatkowski
Kristoff
S.DuMoulin
Kittel
Serpa
Hoogerland
Gadret
Fischer

It actually doesn't look that bad if you look at it long enough LOL

Nobody in the attack for me:

Quote:

The five stage leaders who are 45" ahead at 6km
The escapees early in stage 12 are:

- Gavazzi (AST)
- Sicard (EUS)
- Mori (LAM)
- Flecha (VCD)
- Delaplace

Lead up to 1'45", that's your break for the day.

Have Sicard in my 3 Frenchmen team - thats the best that can be said there!

Hoping for three good days for Sammy D as not many have him. If he gets bored of sprinting for 8th place he does like a breakaway too...

Is that the order you think they will crash in  24

Top rules of Fantasy cycling don't pick Goss or Farrar!  19

Damn, I axed Sicard yesterday and planned to buy Flecha tomorrow. Why do they both have to be in the break today?  20

Luckily I will be shooting up the table anyway what with everyone going penalty mad.

Well those IMS points will make up for the penalties I needed. With Cav, Greipel, Sagan 1-2-3 behind the break

10,9,8 so 27 points (plus Sagan guaranteed 5 as will still be in green no matter what, and Greipel and Cav likely to be 2nd and 3rd in that comp still as well)

Got

Sagan
Greipel
Kittel
Kristoff
Bonnet
Lobato
DvP
El Fares

2 pens

Hoping for better today after going Quintana rather than Kwia yesterday. Still about 200 off the lead. This is where we all piss enrique off. No tinkering. Want 1 for Sat. 5 for Sun.

Bet Cav will win. First time he's been first at the IM for a long time.

Cav does seem pretty fired up after yesterday, might go as far to say he seems pissed off.

He's my bet for today.
