    That is the weirdest 3 days in the mountains I can remember watching. Time trial will be very good to watch, as will any intermediate sprints tomorrow.

    Today's stage:

    1st: Landis
    2nd: Sastre
    3rd: Moreau

    Jerseys:

    Yellow: Perreiro by 12 seconds
    Green McEwen
    Polka Dot: Rasmussen
    White: Cunego by 5 seconds

    Which would make:

    Team Surtur = 63 (+2 tomorrow, for the Jerseys, total = 65)
    Team sanabas = 61 (+4 tomorrow, total = 65)
    Team Dell = 32
    Team ChrTh = 29
    Team Mojo = 30 - out of the basement

    Congrats to sanabas. I'm thinking Honchar wins "best value pick" (note to self: research the time trial specialists next year)

    I agree -- I'll crunch some numbers and prove it in a couple of days, but 16 pts on an investment of 5 is probably unbeatable.

    I would just like to thank Rasmussen for coming through at the end.

    And quick crunching on the best available team:

    McEwen - 57 cost, 66 points
    Landis - 30 cost, 45 points
    Perreiro - 30 cost, 34 points
    Rasmussen - 30 cost, 21 points
    Hushovd - 37 cost, 19 points
    De La Fuente - 5? cost, 16 points (He wasn't on the list)
    Honchar - 5 cost, 16 points
    Fothen - 5 cost, 13 points
    Dessel/Pineau - 5/8 cost, 12 points.

    That's a total cost of 194 or 197, to give 242 points scored.

    This is the most efficient possible team you could've had this year... Generates 221 pts out of 150 pts spent:
