Perhaps another opportunity for a break to get away. Txurruka to try again, is my guess.

If we're playing guess who's in the break, I'll go for Luis Angel Mate. My team is basically all sprinters though (revealed below - why not...), one change from yesterday. If I can avoid transfers for the next 3 stages, I'll have 9 banked for Saturday!

Valverde
Cancellara
Ratto
Farrar
Meersman
Matthews
Roux
Boasson Hagen
Markus (in for Iglinsky - could've gone for any of about six but hey, he's called Barry...)

Guess the break I'm tempted by Hansen but think it might be too soon in the tour just yet  39

1,3,6,7 for me, annoyed that Argos let Arndt sprint over Van Rensburg and that Markus didn't do more.

Good for me - 1,3,5,6,7,9 plus Valverde - should've gone Richeze over Markus but you can't have it all...

Thanks TER - always think I could've done better (IF I'd kept Moreno for one more day, IF I'd gone Richeze over Markus today) but I should definitely be happy with that! Now - keep Markus for tomorrow or...  39

Tomorrow looks pretty flat, that's why I took the penalty today to get some sprinters in. Think I'll keep Markus and just see how things go.

Ive gone Richeze for Basso for tomorrow and the day after.

The question is, axe Moreno for a sprinter or not, he still got me 11 safe points today  39

Don't wanna axe Zubledia (cheap), Horner (cheapish for 9 points so couldn't afford EBH) or Valverde, Nibali as I want them for stage 8. Moreno is a bit more disposable as Im thinking of somehow getting J-Rod in for him for stage 8

Damn those who got 10 points for Markus! I knew there was something wrong with him from previous stage placings and hence steered clear.

But even without him my team is now so sprint-loaded it's ridiculous.
