  • VaC stage 61 year 9 weeks agoYes, I was away for the end

    Yes, I was away for the end of the Vuelta the last two years but luckily the hotel or cottage we were in had wireless so quickly put in some transfers each night and did ok. If anything I did better when I didn't have much time to think about it. It was a good pick today. I never would have risked it but maybe he's trying to peak later this year. The Ardennes must be his goal and I'll consider him for my team then. The best thing is when you get someone on a long break with tons of mountain points, like Voeckler and Valverde on consecutive days last year on the Tour. Won the Valverde stage and got the Bryton I was after!

    I like both of those posts, R.S.

    Like the thinking on the transfer front, especially with Thomas flying in the UCI rankings.

    Yeah, I must say that the extensions to the bars seem nuts to me, but overall it's still a really interesting design.

  • VaC stage 61 year 9 weeks agoYes, the classics and grand

    Yes, the classics and grand tours are the most fun, I'll be away for the Dauphine and TdS this year anyway so I'll be dropping down the overall in June. Its great fun when you pick someone out of left-field and he brings in the win like today tho - I'll enjoy it while it lasts. (Ie until 3 of my classics purists take each other out tomorrow...)

    PCS have now decided Dumoulin was third which would give me a podium badge, don't know if its confirmed tho...

    Yes - very lucky! Keep looking over your East Anglian shoulder Alan, I'm gaining!

    You'll catch up a little bit, but Meier scored me 10 and otherwise fairly similar. But my team for tomorrow should be strong as I expect the GC riders to go for it so I've dropped the sprinters and got a couple of riders for a break as well as all the main riders. Maybe should have dropped Wiggo for Dumoulin today but thought Wiggo and Sky might have a go like stage 1 but I expect more attacking tomorrow. Nearly didn't play this game after missing the first stage. In fact you were top for a day as my team temporarily disappeared! Doubt if I'll play California though if I'm doing ok in Giro. It's the Classics and Grand Tours that I like, although the one-week tours have been more interesting this year without Sky's domination.

    plus 6 for Martin at sprint 1 and 5 teammate bonus for Meier

    should be a very healthy 152pts

    Thanks TER - yes Ratto has done you well all week hasn't he? I always get him and Gatto confused and end up avoiding them both. Confused

    Yup he has done me well, just doesn't figure too often in a team that has Viviani and Sagan. Most seem to avoid him, at least on the first stage he does well anyway

  • The sufferfest1 year 9 weeks agoAwful! But in a good way.

    Awful! But in a good way. God they're hard work. I was using Angels over the winter. I've now bought downward spiral but yet to use it.

    However, I the usefulness wears off if you use the same one too frequently, so I may branch out and use trainerroad as well.

    So, there's this tool …

    Seriously though, you can pick up black DeFeet's for less than a tenner, and they're great. Wool-E-Ators in charcoal are my fave.

    From Biciclismo

    1. Simon Gerrans
    2. Gianni Meersman
    3. Daniele Ratto
    4. Samuel Dumoulin
    5. Marcel Wyss
    6. Julien Simon
    7. Dani Moreno
    8. Joaquim Rodriguez
    9. JakobFuglsang
    10. Rigoberto Urán

    so I got 2,3,5, 8 plus 1-4 in GC and top of sprints and mountain points. Shouldn't lose any ground with that. Now, what to do tomorrow?
