Looks like another Vuelta 'sprint stage'.  Basically pretty flat with a technical finish (including a slight rise) at the end.

I've brought in four for today, Meersman, Matthews, Richeze and Farrar (breaking fantasy cycling rule #2) and I used my spare transfer to swap Rodriguez for Valverde in the hope that he tries to pick up the points jersey for a few days.

So we go pretty much opposite Wig, I think im gonna be wrong again then! Hope not as alls i seem to have been is wrong with red arrows!

Gonna need penalties after today, my problem is that I think Moreno will win tomorrow (unless my wildcard goes for it) but is gonna be nowhere after that, and I don't wanna make loads of penalties  39

I may even leave EBH in for tomorrow as the Cat 1 is a fair way from the finish and with tough stages to come after that can't see much attacking on it  39

I think tomorrow is quite a good stage for EBH. He doesn't seem to be in top shape, but I still think he'll do something.

Not sure what to make of that - 1,2 but nothing else.  39 Oh, and Lasca finally got some decent points for my purist team.

I think that's Gilbert's first win in the rainbow jersey, no?

Poor stage for me, only vague highlight being 10th place for Dempster, who I picked on a whim.

Funny old stage tomorrow. Might just write it off and save the transfers for the mountains.

Poor day for me, that knocks me right out of it and possibly dropping a good few places in the Forum Scorum too. 3, 5 and 16 and that's it.

As always thought about Gilbert, but after bringing him in so many times, only for disappointment, I made it my rule not to bring him in! Doh!
