It's a shame he bombed after Zoncolan because the timing of winning on that stage made the Giro more interesting by seeming  to offer a Froome/Non Froome option for the fantasy game...or what remains of it.

I'll steer we'll clear now because transfers are precious and he's simply not a reliable pick.

Anybody taking the risk with him?

I haven't since the opening TT.  He might try and grab one of the final stages, but GC is over for him.  Well the win is, a good TT might see him back in the top 5.

As a post script.

PCS showing Egan Bernal has been entered to Dauphine stat list (I expected tour of Switzerland for him) and journo's now confident he'll be in the TDF. 

Sheesh...21 years old and one of the favourites to win the TDF (fallen to 12/1)...And he may well do it.

Crikey.

Aye that's the latest.  Whether he'll be there for experience or to help Froome, or as an extra option for Sky remains to be seen.  I think he's a wee bit too young to be thinking abobut the win, but it's pretty cool that hes going!

Aye. Definitely falls into the extra option category. That boy is going to have a very big career in cycling.

Oh...and btw Andy....I didn't really pick Froome because I thought he would do as well as he did...that was a real bonus. What I actually did was UN pick Pinot because I thought he might bomb whilst in everybody's team because he's looked so knackered. Froome simply looked the best replacement for a Pinot bomb.
