Anton out for Edet was my transfer too. In fact we have the same top seven, with my two random break guys Mate and Aramendia. Not expecting much, would be nice to get someone in the break today though, 28 people in yesterday and I didn't have any of them!

I too have Edet in... hoping Txurruka will do some breakaway action.

Otherwise it's GC fellas all the way. Banked a solitary transfer so will be able to play around a bit before Wednesday's transition stage.

Result, only just realised it was a rest day tomorrow, makes me feel better only having banked 1 transfer, saying that I might of made 2 transfers today had I known.

57km gone and no break can get clear. Edet won the first KOM, Valverde the first sprint. A good 40km to the next KOM so should see the break form fairly soon...

Looks like the break is set - 1:28 with 67km to go...

Txurruka
Nerz
Flecha
CA Sorensen
Egoi Martinez
Sijmens
Huzarski
Uran
Kohler

I have a quid each way on Nerz at 200/1 so fingers crossed on that - more likely they won't let them get too far unfortunately...

Edet in for someone. Can't remember who? Looks like there might be some GC action today as the two groups have only got a few seconds. Someone just bumped into someone having a piss! Looks like Barguil's having a go again.

There's now 23 guys with a 3-minute lead, including a few decent climbers. Really can't call this one - have the GC guys let the break go or will they push on again on the climb?

You've got Txurruka in the break for your purists. Capecchi still not done anything for you though  3

I know - turns out Capecchi was a bad pick but I really expected him to go well, Moreno-style, if not quite to the same extent. Up there in the early summit finishes, and top 10 in the mountains. Not happened so far though...

Just a worker but with Quintana Movistar played the one-two so it was always a possibility. Herrada high up in GC without having scored many fantasy points. Purists the only thing I'm interested in now as I've won a stage (finally).

Yeah - Valverde was talking up Capecchi a while ago and I paid a bit too much attention. My purists are closing in on third overall so thats become a bit of a target!

Oh yeah! On closer inspection its a replay of last year's stage one into Norwich (when Cav and Farrar crashed, although that doesn't really narrow it down...)

Just deleted my comment after checking but it said on the screen that stage 1 was coming up! Panicked me for a sec but sometimes it pays to skip the first stage and see who's interested!

Low scoring day for me! Should have taken a few risks maybe! Had Nerz for a few stages as well.

Great to see Nibali losing time - still 4 guys that can win this I think...

Nerz nearly won me a packet - never mind. So many potential guys for the breakaways - just not managing to get lucky and pick the right ones so far. Barguil, Huzarski and Nerz were all on my list of ten to pick from, but obviously so were 7 guys who did nothing. EDIT - Mate came in 13th. Well done that man.

Sprint tomorrow?  3

Double edit - Sprint Wednesday??  3
