I noticed tuft, but was 0.3 credits short to take Gatto out and Tuft in (didn't want to axe Bonnen or Demare)

Anyway Hepburn currently leads, time of 13.28

Hepburn, followed by Steegmans and Sergent

that means the likes of Tuft, Boaro and Gretsch didn't come up with the goods

taking out benatti instead of demare stopped me getting all the top 5. did that thing where you worry more about using all your credits rather than getting the best riders

No top 20 yet

Could have been better, could have been worse I guess, but after such a bad start i needed something at least. Gonna have to improve alot to get anywhere near last year

Full results are up on PCS. 2,4,5,11,15 is probably about average. My wild card (Le Bon) was a DNS - doncha just hate it when that happens? Now I'll never know whether or not it would've been a good pick.

Fairly poor for me. I hedged on Morkov but he only managed 30th. Some interesting choices to make now for the final two days. Basically we need to able to pick all OPQS plus Boom and Roelandts...

problem I'm finding is because we haven't had a proper sprint finish yet picking the right sprinters is tough! At Wits End
