Well unless the final cat 2 climb throws a spanner in the works then it looks like a nailed on sprint at the end.

Yeah, as nailed on as you can get I think (except maybe for Sunday). One of my sprinters dropped out yesterday so I only have 4 rather than the planned 5, and they're not really proper sprinters apart from Freddy. So not expecting much!

Unlucky Jensie! Still decent points with the combativity bonus, but always good to see him hang on. Hoping he'll ride a good TT and go for the break again on Saturday!

Think you will have gained a few more points on me (15 for Gallopin, not sure how many voigt will have got, 12 + a few more? 24 maybe), but hopefully many of those above us wont have Mezgec and we can both move up.

Interesting, there were two crashes in the final 3km

"All riders in the leading group at the time of the falls at approximately 2.2 km and 0.5 km from the finish will receive the time of the lead rider."

Phew, thought I'd dropped Mezgec for a minute there when I checked the results. But safely still in my team.

Yes - unlucky Ray!

I'm off to North Wales for a few days now with no internet - hopefully I'll return on Monday with a half-decent purist result for Colorado. As long as none of my Vuelta purists drop out before Saturday...

Enjoyed picking my Vuelta std team with the added constraint that I can't make any transfers until stage 4 - an interesting challenge. Went for 5 climbers and 4 classics-types, mostly from strong TTT teams.

Good luck everyone - here's hoping Jensie and Jacques-Maynes are in the mood for some attacks today!

Got 177 yesterday; best score for a while (but still a way off the best). If only I'd kept faith in Luka Mezgec.

I did also get only my third full house badge of the season, which I'm quite pleased about  4
