It's blowing a hoolie and hammering down up here. Gonna be a lot of crosswinds. Today's stage could be a total lottery - either that or Cav will win again as expected...

...'spose I should get round to picking my teams then after the kicking I took in the Vuelta.

Intended to pick a kind of all-round team, as not expecting too many sprints, but somehow have ended up with something pretty sprinty. Its because I initially missed Pelucchi (who I think will sprint well), and then brought him in for a GC guy. Should've stuck with my gut and gone for House tho', the price put me off but it shouldn't have!

Wiggins
Lofqvist
Cav
Pelucchi
Modolo
Ciolek
Von Hoff
Engoulvent
Adam Yates
