Phaintingoats are holding steady in tenth. Not bad considering I lost Izaguirre and Porte and Fulgsang is injured.

So glad Barguil got his stage win.

I lost the third member of my team. Fulglsang abandoned. Not surprised. It looked painful to ride.

That was an exciting stage. interesting how it split apart. I only saw parts of it...will need to watch the replay...but they kept talking about how smart Aru was playing it. Interesting dynamics continues with Landa also.

destined for another lackluster tdf showing unless kittel wins again and finishes with the green jersey along with
bennett climbing into the top 5 with a few more big names abandoning/crashing out along with de gendt going on
an alpine rampage along with gva racking up 2 stage wins. so like i said-another lackluster tdf. as long as i finish
ahead of slcbob what with that burgeoning hedgehog situation.

That may take some doing! It's all coming together for me, EXACTLY like I planned it. Ha ha ha...

While I would like to see somebody else on the top step in Paris, I'm hoping those final standing points for Froome will cement my position on the podium. I think Tiger has the best chance to win and without Froome on his team, Titanium could see a fall from grace after the final tally, reminiscent of Aru's two days in yellow.

Titanium' s ace in the hole is Matthews. Bardet dont hurt either.

Andras / Titanium is looking very strong. Almost top 100 of the overall. Well done. There's no catching him in this league.

I'm trying to pull my way through, up to a top 5 or maybe onto the podium if lightning strikes, but I'm getting pretty tired of ooga-booga wheel sucking his way through the pack on me.

this chronic wheel sucker is saving his energy for the vuelta at this point.

We will see! I really hope I can stay at the top in the league.

Thanks! This time I put some thoughts into my team and still can't believe that I almost picked Uran over Gesink originally. I hope that Tony Martin can pull off the last TT, but with no days after it my bet is that Sky will dominate that too.

Down 3 riders now...losing Kittel for the final sprint and green jersey points could hurt. Just hoping to stay on the podium!
