Glad I've got Edet and Arroyo then. Can't believe Kiryienka is out there again! Got Knees from Sky.

Team is
Valverde
Purito (first time I've had both)
Horner
Nibali
Edet
Arroyo
Txurruka
Knees
Meier

Oh my god, that was intense!
Chris Horner wtf! His face after he finished looked like he was on some sort of drugs! Well played if clean, but so unbelievable!
How they peddle up those hills for so long is unreal!

Sounds like I missed a great race! Nerz turned out to be a good pick for me the last two days, but went Rodriguez/Konig over Nibali/Pinot, never mind. Solid again - and hopefully more points for my purists!

Well done silas chime!

You leapfrogged me, even though I had a pretty good day (200 pts) so you're now 8 points & 2 places ahead of me... one stage to go Big Grin
