Would've picked clement too but didn't want to penalty transfer tomorrow!

As long as I get green arrows today I'll be happy, ITT has been my weak point this year.

This is my team except I have J-Rod instead of Valverde. I've also got 5 transfers in the bag for tomorrow Big Grin

Cracking ride from Westra, to turn a 1'30" deficit on Urtasun into a 3 min lead at the end is impressive. Shame he's not in my team though.

went TT today with 5 changes

Barta
Martin
Cancellara
Clement
EBH

stuck with Konig, His Nibs, Kangert and Horner.

next few days are tricky, wish I had 14 transfers. Devil Wave

Nice call on Barta, he's currently sitting 2nd, think you may extend your lead on me in the Forum Scorum again today unless Basso/Rodriguez/Roche do something impressive.

It's probably more important who gets it right over the next two days, AND gets their team back to climbing norm. I will be taking some penalties in the next few days, which would close the gap back down again.

confirmed loads of issues today apparently, according to the twittersphere. seems however that cancellara has tony martin well beaten today, and then big gaps to the others. EBH way down I heard for those on him

What the hell is Pozzovivo on today?! I never expected him to be anywhere near the top 10 but he's currently 2nd at the 2nd check and beating Tony Martin!

EPO? Blood doping? Epherdrine? Cortizone? A cocktail of all that with a twist of lime....

Cleaner than ever before.

1,2,4,6,14,20 for me. Pinotti was poor, should have kept Konig and Pozzovivo (but seriously, who expected that?!) and possibly brough in Cataldo/Clement instead of Pinotti.

Not too bad, glad I gave in last night and picked Cancellara/Martin at least.

1,2,4,6,16. Should have swapped JRod for Valverde and kept Pozz instead of EBH At Wits End

There are no stupid questions, just stupid people.

I just saw. Can't believe it. I just put in Martin and Canc and left everything the same as I couldn't be bothered to change my mountain team. I would have won Monday as well if I'd left my team alone from Sunday!

Tool kit will be useful as I don't have much more than the very basics. Not really into mechanics much, although I did change a cotter-based crankset for a cotterless one many moons ago! Anyone else remember cotters! Pain in the ass when they came loose!!

Cheers! Fluke though. Not sure whether to bother now as I've nothing else much to play for but I'd love to win a mountain stage before the end of the year and there are a few to play for.
