Volta ao Algarve stage 5

by Joelsim   February 22, 2014  

I'm finding this one very tricky to decide. My team is doing very well, 7th I think ahead of processing.

Do I risk some guaranteed points on Kwia and/or Bertie on Cav and Demare????? Especially as I want 4 sprinters which would mean 20pt penalty.

Tricky as.

A bad day for me yesterday as I slipped from 7th to 33rd. Have taken a big risk for today's stage taking out Kwia's guaranteed points and replacing him with Cav.

Not only that I've added 3 further sprinters, Demare, Modolo and Coquard and I then needed a 3.0 so Pereira is in too.

Risky, especially given Cav's form and 30 penalty points.

In for a penny...

It is risky but I reckon you've done the right thing Joelsim. Although I was unwilling to risk Cav, so went Lobato instead, and kept Rui Costa. I'm miles back in this one though...

only 10. Most of my GC scorers have been in my team posting low scores for a good few days now.

Full house badge though!
