Not quite sure what I did with my team, seems a mess Thinking

Wiggins
Phinney
Boom
Kelderman
Weening
Dumoulin (he is the guy I hope can shoot me up the leaderboard)
Stybar
Impey
De Vreese

Will axe Wiggins and De Vreese tomorrow

My main aim is my purist team though, no one above me has Weening, and only one team has both Kelderman and Phinney, but a couple of those have Wiggins or Chavanel. but Id like to think im in a good place to top 10 come sunday with a core of Boom, Kelderman, Phinney, Weening and Bakelants

I take it everyone's team is pretty similar!! All to do with pricing! Not complaining as its nice to get more badges!!
Bring on the vuelta Wink

The difference between me and lance Armstrong is that I still have a chance of winning the Tour de France Smile

1,5,6,10,17,20 so not great, Jungels over Sergent was my final choice - if I'd have got that right I'd have been OK. Looks like some high scores above! Greipel and Nizzolo out for tomorrow, just have to decide who to bring in.

Just remembered, have Chavanel and Langeveld in purist so thats a nice bonus.

1, 2, 5, 12. Not too bad. Green arrows today. Brought in Gilbert and Chavanal? At least one worked. When I watched the highlights I thought I might have taken out Demare. Wasn't expecting him to win. Brought in a couple for tomorrow, Phinney and Boom. Playing safe as this is more unpredictable and better than I thought it would be.

The next 2 stages seem to be completely pan flat, so ive left my sprinters in along with Phinney and De Vresse, so at least I will then have 6 transfers for the ITT then

I thought Phinney was effectively a sprinter but I think he had a crash in stage 3 but Boom worked out!

Did ok in the TT today as I had Chavanal. My team looks good for the next two stages though so should do ok given I didn't do any research.

Boom
Chavanal
Dumoulin
Phinney
Langeveld
Gilbert
Stybar
Kelderman
Demare

Top 6 in GC with tons of points to spare! Bit crazy. Think we need to go back to a more intuitive valuing system as the computer one is a bit bizarre.
