Here are the results… Incredibly, it appears I have pulled one out of the bag. McEwen’s loss of place due to “illegal sprinting” made this a low points round. Most of us have him in the team, and I think (quick calculation) that Paul would have won the stage if the original result had stood – with McEwen in the second spot in his team, and of course his 3 bonus points for Boonen in his top spot.
Even with a fairly random team, Keir is still holding his own with a random 2 bonus points as well, his 4th placed rider came in 4th (Eisel), something which would not have happened if McEwen had kept his place.

Team time trial doesn’t count tomorrow.
