Pinot took a fine win, encouraged by Madiot's initial offers to increase his bonus (or perhaps it was the eventual screaming threats to kill him and the entire Pinot family if he failed). Excellent call by ceccovb, who soloed to our stage win with 20 points.

In the GC, andrewp retook the casquette jaune with points from Gallopin. Other GC moves came from Gravy24, up to 3rd place with 2 solid picks on a difficult day to call; and stage winner ceccovb of course, rocketing from 38th up to 5th.

Our mountains competition begins soon with Stage 10 - see the polka dots below for details.

Picture_20_medium

The first 6 riders on a stage score points, 2nd-6th place score 60%, 40%, 30%, 20%, 10% of above.

Entry Deadline

The strict entry deadline is the official start time of the stage - timestamp one minute late, your entry doesn't count for that stage.
Subject to the deadline, you may change any or all of your picks, but only one time, in a single reply to your original post.

Entry Format

On the first three lines of the body of the post write your three riders' surnames only.
Write the surname in full, and nothing else. No nicknames, no abbreviations.
Add first name after the surname only when there's ambiguity (e.g. "Velits, Peter").
