1, 2, 4, 6, 12, 20. Good on the face of it, but looks like a lot of similar teams today.

Also kept Pantano, not sure if he's got any mountain points. Sounds like an awesome ride from Cummings, delighted to see him take the limelight.

Gah! I dropped Denifl for today At Wits End

Denifl for Zoidl was my change, bugger bugger bugger bugger bugger Crying

Edit: In hindsight bringing in Roy for a penalty transfer was a poorer decision.

Yeah, was going to say, Zoidl for Denifl not *that* bad given he's 2nd on GC too.

I think I may have done enough to hang on in the forum, my 10 point penalty was worth it (Silin for Plankaert)

Roy my only non scorer, 1,2,4,5,6,12,20 + Colbrelli

To be honest from what I was reading Cummings rode out of his skin with bmc in front leading the chase up the summit

As for my team ...gave up prior to the ITT when my mobile/site saw fit to destroy any hope Waiting

Aye, I was gutted when I saw Denifl top three of four but Zoidl did well and I should be comfortably leading the three credit rider comp now Cool

Scores updating, didn't do enough to make a charge up the table but I'm happy with a top 3 finish in the Forum Scorum and a top 10 overall.
