I went for some breakaway guys, something I'm not usually very good at.

I've had Anacona for the last 4 stages so 1 more stage won't hurt, hopefully he fancies it  39

Goats back in....

Out:EBH,VanRensburg,Richeze,Bling.

In:Choo-Choo(break possibility),Lion King(getting stronger) and our two echelon haters Pozzovivo and Pinot(possible stage winners today).

Add them to Nibs,Nico,Valverde,Old Father Time and the current KOM leader.

Looking forward to today, that stage with Froome and Cobo in 2011 was one of the most exciting finishes I'd seen at the time. I have the same main five as Ray, plus...
Ulissi
Sammy Sanch
Arroyo
Pozzovivo

Purists could do with a Txurruka blitz!

Hmmm... not the breakaway I was hoping for. Like everyone, I got:

Nibali
Horner
Valverde
Roche
Edet

Plus...

Ratto
Nocentini
Ulissi
Txurruka

Picked 8 big guns... had a choice between 4 Caja riders... I picked the one with the best shot at KOM but he hasn't escaped  20

No one in the break for me ho hum! no surprises there then.

Big move for me today dropped Nibbles for Purito. Bit risky but hey it's just a game!

Purito
Valverde
Roche
Horner
Edet
pinot grigio
Konig
Arroyo
Barguil.

Really really wanted Duran Duran in my team today but could't get him and Purito.

I would just like to say that the rider values are pretty close to perfect for this Vuelta. There is choice but you cannot have everyone you want. If anything some good riders look a bit cheap, but that may be making it more interesting.

Well Done Dave!

Agreed - lots of breakaway guys to choose from so a bit more variation in the teams. In hindsight it was good for the fantasy game that Basso (and Zubeldia) dropped out, otherwise there could've been a lot more very similar teams.

Nibali remains in roja - but by a mere three seconds from Horndog! Valverde still very much in the running too, 1:10 down.

6,7,9,10,11 + KOM points for Edet

Tomorrow looks like a funny old stage - lots of flat, then a bit rolling before the cat 2 summit finish. Might leave the transfers alone and save up for Madrid.

Waiting for the complaint from Valverde and Nib's getting a penalty (fine) now that Horner is so close for that stupid move he pulled

Not so sure about that Johnny

I was referring to the winner, It could either be a male or female.  3

If SHE had won something, then yes, it would become she.

Pretty damn good to be honest

33rd on the stage and into the top 100 for the Vuelta(90th position).

No changes for friday or saturday barring withdrawals so should have 6 for sundays parade route/sprint(or will it be like that if everything remains 3 seconds apart.....a final day stage win could make all the difference!!)
