TDU stage 3

by JAndrewHill   January 22, 2014  

Well my purist plan failed at stg two, by not picking the winner.I shudda picked useless, I did consider it. So are we all picking G for stag three, hoping he repeats his heroics with a corkscrew? Well I have not transferred him in.

Brought in Gavazzi and Will Clarke, hoping to get a full house for this stage.

Was gonna bring in Gavazzi but would need to make 2 transfers and drop Hermans and Dennis to do so, and would have messed me up for tomorrow. Also wanted cuddles. So hopping cuddles doesn't place and Gavazzi doesn't make it. Something from Dennis would be nice, Bouet, Hermans and Geschke placing top 10 works for me.

Gerrans for the win

He was on my radar, but I looked at my team and thought, two sprints and a mountain top finish, so thought no as he may feature tomorrow, but he wont feature in the last 3 stages. So I made no changes, hoping the likes of the 3 I mentioned above feature, making it easier for the last 3 stages

He who dares wins though?

A Belgian and a Dutchman brought in. Had considered sticking and saving transfers for sprinters for Stage 4. May resort to taking penalty points.

Like your team, TER!

Maybe it is cos my sony tab is touch screen, and when the save button is quite small and my old fat fingers are so clumsy, I tend to touch the button for a few seconds to make sure the touch registers, so that might get taken as a double click..... Clark for the win in stage three, I hope

Something of a jour sans for me today. And once again, beaten by my own purist team! Still banked a couple of transfers so not all doom & gloom.

1,3,5,11 plus a point for Gavazzi = 150 so getting better each stage.

Pretty happy with that....G in for Matthews gave me a 13pt profit.

1,2,3,5,10,13(G) on the stage plus top 6 on GC...All 5 in sprints comp...3,4,5 in KOM...plus 4 of the 6 scorers on Corkscrew....all added up to 171pts and moves me into 3rd for London and 3rd in Forum's Scorum's and 33rd in the TDU.......sticking with the 'threes' I've got 3 transfers for stage 4 too!!

Used all 3 transfers for stage 4.......looks like a nothing stage except for a bunch sprint but these are the sorts of stages where mini-tours are won and lost fantasy wise(particularly in the Forum's Scorum's)
