Nice one  21
I dropped Valverde for J-Rod yesterday (unnecessarily as it turned out), but wanted Valverde back in for today. Wanted to keep Rodriguez too though. So I've dropped Nibali and Pozzovivo for Valverde and Luis Leon Sanch. Too much fiddling methinks - previously on this tour I've dropped both Moreno and Cancellara the day before they've made the podium and could easily have ended up doing the same today!

Valverde
Rodriguez
Moreno
Konig
Horner
Roche
Basso
Zubeldia
LL Sanchez (for the break? For the TT? Who knows...)

It's time for Uran and/or Henao to step up to the mark...

Must be, I now don't have either of them in my team  21

No changes for me

Rodriguez
Moreno
Nibali
Roche
Horner
Pozzovivo
Konig
Basso
Zubeldia

Considered Valverde/Nibali swap but would have needed two transfers and wanted Nibali back in for Tuesday so didn't think it was worth it.

Seven changes in bag for Tuesday.

Zubeldia
Valverde
Basso
Moreno
Nibali
Majka
Kangert
Roche
Aramendia

At least four of those are reasonable-to-good TTers, so won't have to make too many changes come tomorrow.

By the way, if anybody wants the inside track on the fantasy Vuelta, watch my transfer activity - I have an uncanny knack of transferring out the winner of the next stage...

Dam De Clerq!!!!. Still If Anton places higher than Uran my transfers will still be justified as LL Sanchez wouldn't have scored anyway, just annoying as I tossed up between him Konig and Barguil.

Konig is sick today. He's struggling to hang on at the back.

Bad transfers for me - underestimated Nibali's form and should've kept him in. Still 1,3,4,5,7 and a couple more in the top 20.

More importantly - what a great Grand Tour so far! And most of the real big mountains still to come...

2,3,4,7,8,9,12. I guess it could have been worse!, De Clerq replaced by someone else would have preferable.

The problem is most had what I had + 1 and 5 as well, so I guess I will loose in the region of 80 points  2

The GC they put up was defo wrong (it was just the same order the riders came in in)

I make it Roche will still be 3rd, and Moreno should still be about 7th

1,2,4,5,7 & 9 for me so far. Having J-Rod instead of Valverde has cost me over the last couple of days and Pozzovivo hasn't lived up to my expectations but other than it's been ok  1

EDIT: Plus 12 and 20. Not amazing in the end.

I'm always one or two riders away from a great score.

I didn't expect Nibali to do that well - 1,3,4,5,7,12,16,20. So a full house if Zubeldia finishes...

1,2,3,4,7,9,12 + 5 for Zubeldia if he finishes. Not bad considering LeClerq didn't make it out of the neutral zone

2,3,4,7,10,12,17 (plus GC and team points if Zubeldia manages to haul himself over the finish).

Not bad on the face of it, but looks like there'll be a lot of high scores.  39

By the way, when was the last time a 900 year old man won two stages of a grand tour?!
