You picked a lot of young Dutch riders, but do you really expect anything from Bol, Maaskant or Poels? Bol didn't give me the impression he'll ever live up to his expectations, and the other two are still recovering from injuries.

Maaskant had a pretty good late season last year, not really in the picture but you could see he's on the way back. Poels (reportedly) is riding quite well again, but even then he'll struggle to improve on last year's CQ score.

I made a choice between Kelderman and Slagter, and fortunately (so far) I chose the latter. I figured he was hardly used in races that suited him before.

I had Slagter in 2011, so I am happy with the potential he showed this week (and which I suspected he had) but I picked him a couple years too soon unfortunately. Pretty mediocre TDU/San Luis this year, but with Gilbert's crash there was little to expect. I am however more hopeful for the coming races where my high number of French riders should help me score numerous points.

Slagter saved my TDU. Really, really exciting prospect.

Elissonde has been solid as well. I very much look forward to seeing him in the big mountains this year.

So glad I switched to Slagter in one of those last minute moves. TG and Rojas still quite good on GC. Not as bad a TDU as I first feared.

Starting La Marseillaise with
Bardet
Chainel
Sicard
Van Der Sande

Not sure what to expect...

I have 5 in the top 35 and saved by the fact it is WT and all finishers get 5 points. Disappointing that Thomas moved down but seeing the Sky car and the Directors glum faces descending Wilunga was great.

Well at least he moved up another couple of notches today so there is a 36 point bonus. Although with most people having G it doesn't matter much.
My team is very Aussie loaded but did me fat lot of good. A few points coming in from Goss.
Thinking I made a horrible mistake with Kittel, but that will all be redeemed when he wins MSR this year.

Edit: Can somebody help a rookie out, are there any points for KOM? As I understand it since Bobridge finished 2nd in the KOM he gets the same points as for a stage 2nd place, in this case 22 points. If I've understood this maybe he didn't have a shocking TDU after all. Plus another 35 to GT for the sprint jersey

Yes there is, 40p. This is how it ended last year.
