Feeling loquacious these days, so I'll kick off again.

Stage 9.  Whilst we are all straining to pick one breakaway rider, I note that kakashi had Geniez, L Sanchez and De La Cruz all in one team; impressive.  drnolittle had Geniez, De La Cruz and De Gendt and won the stage, but I feel De Gendt is too expensive.

2 transfers today for marginal gain, with the eternal hope that Dombrowski will shine.

Cheers

Only change for today is Quintana in for Chaves which probably spells disaster for Quintana.

I think the break could be like on Stage8 - a complete lottery. So no other changes.

Dropped Chaves for Quintana.   Lost faith in Dombrowski and he has gone for me.  Been struggling with the De Gendt cost too.  It has to be a GC battle today, doesn't it?

I still have 27 transfers,  and I'm 176th in the standings.  Hoping the extra wiggle room comes in handy.

I think I have too many expensive riders - Froome, Quintana, Valverde and Chaves.  Brambilla is my only other rider over 20 credits.  I might need to rethink that strategy a wee bit.
