hushovd
mezgec
swift
hutarovich
renshaw
kruopis

+
henao
majka

Tough one today - who will be sprinting?

Hedged my bets and took one penalty for these...

Majka
Henao
Rebellin
Matysiak (in the break!)
Huzarski
Swift
Mezgec
Golas
Kruiswijk (will transfer out tonight for whoever looks strong in the sprint today, assuming thats what happens...)

PS - the break is 8 mins ahead - Matysiak, Dyachenko, Mestre and Selvaggi.

So are we thinking it might be a sprint finish tomorrow?

For what its worth, from the parcours I'd normally say its about 80-20 in favour of a sprint finish (it was a sprint last year), except for the fact that this 6-man-teams thing could make it more difficult for the pack to get organised if a good late attack goes. Plus there are GC gains to be had this year, whereas last year they were all keeping their powder dry for the penultimate stage. The rest of this week could be very unpredictable...

Maybe I have missed something but should Rafal Majka not get 15 points today? 10 for GC and 5 for leading the points comp?

I guess I should mention this daily,

Its the sprints competition that's being scored, not the points, because the points are purely finish line Nerd

I thought I must have missed it.

But why does it say Points in the scoring details? Why is the text not changed to say Sprint?

The reason I can't change it, because its just a general scoring chart. Dave has to do it.

He is currently on his jollydays, So when he returns, we can discuss it Wink

Its only two points different, but I'm mainly asking this to check I understand correctly how the points are being scored...

Matysiak
2 sprints @ 6pts each = 12pts
1 cat 3 @ 3pts
3rd overall in sprints comp = 3pts.
Total 18pts, but he was only awarded 16?

Cheers, C

I'll keep an eye out for the official scores, because the tour do it later on.

So I've done it on the unofficial where Matysiak got a 1st and 2nd in the sprints = 10 points Wink
