Made a mess of my transfers too yesterday but still ended up with green arrows somehow. Sticking to my oiginal plan and brought in Gilbert and Flecha for today, hoping for a similar finish to yesterday although if EBH could get a puncture at 3km to go that'd be nice.

Going to have to throw some penalty transfers at my team for tomorrow to get it back to a full climbing set up.

Pozz was only 2 minutes down as he had a flat tyre in the last 5km, he didn't loose any actual time. as the 3km cut off was extended to 5km for yesterdays stage

Mess? I reckon thats OK (I have 8 of them myself so I hope so!) - steady today and set up nicely for tomorrow. Lulu Sanchez for Petit is the only difference in my team.

Gilbert (for Horner)
Flecha (for Farrar)
Meersman
Richeze
Matthews
Valverde
Nibali
Roche
Basso

Will keep the last four for tomorrow and probably stick in three penalty transfers.

Want Rodriguez back in but not sure if he's worth either an extra transfer to swap with Valverde or whether he's worth having at the expense of Horner/Pozzovivo or some other mid-value climbers.

Edit: Had a quick look at transfers for tomorrow, which would you have:

Valverde, Rodriguez, Elissonde, Arroyo (or other under 4 credit rider)
Valverde, Pozzovivo, Pinot, Moreno

leaning towards the latter although I suspect J-Rod may do more in the final week than Valverde depending on who's targetting the Worlds.

Good sized break has three minutes on the peloton:

Rinaldo Nocentini, Mikael Cherel (Ag2r-La Mondiale)
Warren Barguil (Argos-Shimano)
Bauke Mollema (Belkin)
Ivan Santaromita (BMC)
Antonio Piedra, Amets Txurruka (Caja Rural)
Jerome Coppel (Cofidis)
Egoi Martinez (Euskaltel-Euskadi)
Michele Scarponi (Lampre-Merida)
Jelle Vanendert (Lotto-Belisol)
Beñat Intxausti (Movistar)
Iker Camano (NetApp-Endura)
Gianni Meersman, Serge Pauwels (Omega Pharma-QuickStep)
Christian Meier (Orica-GreenEdge)
Xabier Zandio (Sky)
Tomasz Marczynski (Vacansoleil-DCM)

Some strong riders in there and good climbers, if they can push the break up towards 8-10 minutes I could see this sticking.

Just one man from my team in this sticky-looking break (Meersman).

What's the Spanish for 'jour sans'?

Sounds it'll go to the break but with Meersman dropped I have no-one in the remaining ten man breakaway. Seriously annoyed because I'd ear-marked Scarponi and Txurruka for tomorrow...

Remaining break is:

Bauke Mollema - Belkin Procycling Team
Amets Txurruka - Caja Rural
Warren Barguil - Team Argos-Shimano
Xabier Zandio Echaide - Sky Procycling
Ivan Santaromita - BMC Racing Team
Jérôme Coppel - Cofidis, Solutions Credits
Rinaldo Nocentini - AG2R La Mondiale
Michele Scarponi - Lampre-Merida
Beñat Intxausti Elorriaga - Movistar Team
Egoi Martinez De Esteban - Euskaltel Euskadi

Flecha in 19th - thought he might make a go of it, Sitges is as close to a hometown as he has in Spain.

Good for me - no-one in the break but had a mainly GC team so didn't drop back that much. Txurruka in the purists.

Made my transfers for tomorrow - tried to play safe but I can never resist picking for the break on a day like tomorrow!
