Tour De Romandie saw a nice few scores......Hepburn with 15(although as teammate bonuses for Albasini's 3 wins rather than the expexted TT's),Zoidl returned to form with 6pts on stage 3 and 18 in the final TT,Sergent showed why he's always a threat inb a prologue by claiming 17pts in the opener and C.Kern scored a Lanterne Rouge 10 plus Ignatvev a Silak team mate bonus 5 on stage 3......Mohoric picked up a single point for the opening prologue.

Either way it all leads to a two-way tie for the lead

Zoidl(drheaton) 89
Hepburn(stumps) 89
Alaphillipe(Big Boss Dave Atkinson) 73
Zabel(gizmo) 45
Sergent(chiv30) 44
Domont(enrique) 32
Flakemore(arcadiak) 24
Ignatyek(Giff77) 22
Kolar(turboprannet) 22
F.Schleck(ray silvester) 20
C.Kern(NeilG83) 20
Seb.Henao(Timbo13) 15
Chaves(TERatcliffe) 15
Mohoric(Ghedebrav) 11
LeCuisinier(chrisdstripes) 10
Ewan(DylanChurchill) 6
Earle(mikeh789) 5

Rasch(livestrongnick) 5
Sutterlin(stevemarks) 5

Hepburn,Zoidl and Sergent have been scoring recently in the Giro/Tour Cali too so expect good things for them in the next round up

California saw a brilliant performance by Chaves including a stage win on stage 6 as well as scores on 3 other stages for a combined EIGHTY points to take over at the top.

More steady work by Sergent including a nice time trial for 26pts and a tidy little 7pts on the closing stage.....and Gaimon notched a 5pt Dennis team-mate bonus on stage 3 to open his account..

Chaves(TERatcliffe) 95
Zoidl(drheaton) 89
Hepburn(stumps) 89
Sergent(chiv30) 77
Alaphillipe(Big Boss Dave Atkinson) 73
Zabel(gizmo) 45

Ray, i seem to be missing the 20 points for the TTT that Hepburn scored on the first stage of the Giro.

I'll add giro scores when it's all done.....I'd be surprised if Zoidl or Hepburn weren't in the lead at the end of it to be honest.

Oliveira scored 4 pts in the Tour De France Time Trial and was the only other scorer in the entire Tour apart from the mighty Frank Schleck Big Grin Big Grin Big Grin Big Grin

Schleck rode relatively well in the mountains picking up 55pts....still not enough in my mind for what Phil and Paul were calling a 'renaiissance' but hey.....I'll take them where I can get them.

Hansen has been a bust

He's got the time trial to look forward to on Saturday, but given his inability to finish tours recently, plus an inability to stay with the pack to rival Cheng Ji, I expect he will be too knackered to finish.

I don't suppose anyone has an archive of who the 3.0 riders were at the time the comp started so we can see what we could have won. I suspect Coquard and Formolo are the biggest ones we missed.

Coquard defo wasn't a 3 pointer, not sure on formolo, but think he may have been 3.3 or something

Could be worse......Arcadiak took Flakemore on his TDU form......hasn't raced a 'in-game' competition since which is hardly surprising considering he was on the Aussie development squad.

Nice one. I was surprised by their result, but even more surprised by cannondale. If chaves has half decent form he could do quite well for you in this race for this comp

Ah bollocks Crying If he does well i think you will win the comp as not many races after the vuelta for me to catch up.
