    I think most purists,if they picked 'Panzerwagon' would have been banking on the 30+ points for the stage 6 ITT and taken anything else as a bonus?

    There are two 'sprint' jerseys, one is a points jersey awarded based on finishing positions, the second is a sprints jersey based on intermediate sprints.

    For this race the intermediate sprint jersey is being scored as this is in line with previous years and the Volta Catalunya where the same was in place. This also means that we're scoring the competition as a whole (both the actual intermediate sprints themselves and the overall competition for these sprints)

    Yesterday Txurruka took all three sprints so he has a large enough lead that he can't really be overtaken today.

    They often refer to it as the 'Meta Volante' Jersey scored 3,2,1(6,4,2,for our purposes) on the three MV points you see on the profile.

  • Choosing a new bike, how hard can it be?1 year 15 weeks agoAlways a personal choice when

    Always a personal choice when buying a self-propelled two wheeled vehicle? What you need to think about is : The advise from others is good? Maybe? Did they say : I have that or this bike? Therefor it must be good!

    Reviews are great to iron out the pro's & con's. But, before you purchase anything on recommendation; do your research.

    Here's a few I'd recommend : The Spesh, as others have mentioned (I like it verymuch) now take a close look at Ridley Bikes. Canyon should not be overlooked! And the newest Giant Road Race Range of bikes is something to consider. Personally I'd look at the Cube Lightening Stealth. But the choice is yours. Good luck and enjoy searching for your dream mount.

    That little burst from JAndrewHill also saw him re-enter the top10 at the expense of NeilG83 in the Forum's Scorum's overall.Wig_Billy now has a 554 lead in standard and 385 in purist.

    120pt+ performances from JAndrewHill and Hugh Lupus saw them take up the first 2 positions in the Forum's Scorum's VueltaPaisVasco and the Basque Country looks to be to JAndrew's liking as he leads the purists as we go into the mountains.

    As discussed earlier DrHeaton and TERatcliffe continue their din-dong battle for a top 5 spot and JAndrewHill climbed another spot to 9th in the Forum's Scorum's overall.
    Wig_Billy has 540 standard and 391 purist over the bunch.

    I find all of this stuff so sad, being a top cyclist is almost like being on remand, having to log whereabouts etc., I know at the end of the day its their fault for cheating, but for new guys coming into the sport clean this stuff has to be horrible.

    What I find sad is that until cyclists and other athletes clean up their sport, they will be under continual suspicion. Given that the US postal team, amongst many others have harboured drug cheats, and until recently none of the riders have 'outed' their fellow riders unless they have also been convicted I think things will need to get worse before they get better.

    Ted King tweeted/instagramed(?) a pic about the new Synapse and swiftly deleted it. I presume that means Cannondale are waiting until Roubaix or later to launch it.

    I wander if OmegaPharma have bought a bunch of non branded Gabbas from Casteli and printed them up with Vermarc and team logos, they're waaay too similar.

    And finally... looked like a couple of Katusha riders were wearing the Air Attack too.

    Horrible situation, an educated PC could have suggested riding in single file if they believed both cars and riders would be safer, but the lecture and the assumed wrong-doing are completely out of order. He'll no doubt get a ticking off and if he's good he'll realise that he did the wrong thing and if he's not he'll hold a grudge forever.

    Mike, I agree! They don't call them "Wooden-tops" for no-reason.

    A suggestion from the PC that it would be far safer to cycle in single file on that particular road; would surely have been appreciated far more than being shouted at, or lectured incorrectly on a point of law and the highway code.

    Numpty probably will hold a grudge; I'm never wrong PC nod!
