Come on then folks lets have some chat then.......

I missed all breakaway riders yesterday and have opted to bring in a couple of riders to give me safe GC points for today. AM contemplating some penalties tonight for tomorrow's TT.

No changes for me

The obvious pick would be to have bought Terpstra in but that would have meant ditching DeMare,Greipel or Viviani to be qble to afford him and to be honest they are my idea of the 1-2-3 today......so I'll think I'll wait until the TT

Greipel
Viviani
DeMare
Markus
Boonen
Breschel
Kohler
Hepburn
Waeytens

I'm not making any changes - annoyed I didn't gamble on Elmiger but he was just too expensive to fit in. So saving transfers for the TT now...

Ditched Bos as Belkin are likely to go with Markus. Brought Terpstra in a day early.

I made no changes, the same as I did for tour down under, I have a large case of the "care" factor.....i.e. I do not care

Yea i think you need to watch the races in order to connect and then 'care' about them. With the olympics I've missed most of these.

my purist is doing better than my standard,
1,3,9 today

I don't understand why you bother posting if you have no interest... Do you 'want' people to know you're not interested? Do you 'want' people to know you're not really trying to 'win'? You seem really into this game sometimes, I mean you always post results, but sometimes you seen disaffected, bored... Are you depressed? I mean I appreciate your insights and that you help out with the game, but sometimes you sound so disaffected it's hard to ignore... Are you ok?...

My purist continues to outperform my standard! Largely thanks to Morkov today.

Will continue to fiddle tomorrow, two changes on the cards. No trace of the iron discipline I showed in TDU.

Damn, Gkam, what happened to your resolution for 2014?

Run the game better than last year. Less mistakes on my part.....that's about it

Did you forget to log out or did you close a tab you shouldn't have or did you use a browser that gave you trouble?  3 Does this have anything to do with you not caring about men's cycling anymore?  45 Hmmm...  39 I can see it's up now, but what happened?...

The badges held up the scoring? Don't mess with the badges while doing the scoring, Gkam!  3

They're looking very slick indeed. To be honest I was sceptical that Boonen would bounce back after last season. It remains to be seen, of course, but he looks to be taking great form into the classics.
