Team Irn Bru are made from girders.

You didn't go for Sagan  :o

Just managed some last minute changes, going for classement riders and not that many etape winners.  ;)

And I decided to squeeze  Wiggo to the team next to Evans.

I have two teams, one of them is sans wiggo.  I have Skip Cadel Evans as my GC hopeful in that

The second team "Random Factor" is doing better at the moment than the Wiggo team "comme vache qui pisse"

I have two teams

Is that allowed?

Not good news for those who selected Tony Martin.  He had to go to hospital last night after a fall just 11km into yesterday's stage.   Bad wrist and either bruised or broken leg (probably bruised, given that he managed to complete the stage in the first group).

"I hope that it is only a bad bruise and not a break," Martin said. "Then I will try to fight my way through until the time trial on the coming Monday."

I would like to apologise to the riders I have inadvertently jinxed by selecting them. Get well soon, Messers Rojas and Martin.

Me too! And EBH! And Chavanel!

Only Hoogerland and Kruiswijk yet to pick up any points for me, but I'm expecting them to start scoring on Saturday (also when Cancellara will stop scoring).

I'm still beating you!  I currently have the yellow jersey in all three mini-leagues I've entered.  Tony Martin and David Moncutie have now picked up their first points, which means that all of mine are scorers.

Have you entered the BC league? There's a signed Wiggo jersey up for grabs for the winner, IIRC.

No I haven't, though there's a guy in there who's 700 points clear of me. 

I'm 300 points ahead of you, but Tony Martin's just quit.  Can I hold my lead to Paris without him?

I'm second to last. Thomas Voeckler's knee is letting me down ....
I think you'll find it's a bit more complicated than that.

I don't rate his chances tomorrow though going on his attempt at hobbling off the podium! It was a great brave stage win wasn't it?

Cancellara never picks up points after the first week anyway, but with 700 in the bank, that's still more than most other riders will score.

Hoogerland and Kruiswijk both in the break today - I wonder if either of the feckless eejits will finally pick up any sodding points for me...  ::-)

I was hoping for a Fab load of points on the second time trial.  As Simon said, I didn't do my research!

Well, to be fair, I didn't know about it either, but he isn't on my team. My research amounted to "have I heard of this guy? yes!" apart from Sagan who I read about for about 5 minutes.
