Tour of Cali

by livestrongnick   May 6, 2014  

Having just looked over the provisional start list thats been released i'm looking forward to this one Party even if it does cross over with the Giro.
Any idea when this will be open, please?

There are only 36 yanks riding so it might be a bit tight for picking 3 but its worth having a go.

There are no stupid questions, just stupid people.

Tough to go from the Giro budget to the ToC. Very different beast.

If there are enough for a Los Tres Yanquis comp, then I'll pile in. 30 space credits total would be sensible.

I've seen Danny Von Poppel on the PCS and SteepHill startlists but he's grayed-out in the game... Guess I should have asked earlier, but, is he riding? I think I should have put him in... Sad

No BMC Joel, Thor, Phin and GVA... I would say its Thors turn as he went well here last year, but I like phinney and he been very fast last 12 months(see oman,qatar etc) and he should go close in TT tom.

Waaaa Waaaaa !

Useless if you're not using M$ - needs flash 11.9, not available for Linux. Also, just for fun it shows the warning message in black text on a black background - Hitchhiker's Guide?

Damn! So (!) unlike me! Smile

I was busy fighting with the man who said:

I really should (!) get my priorities straight (!) Thinking

On the other hand it was still technically an hour or more before race start, so if (!) we had had (!) that hour, it would have been enough time to notice, post and notify others (!). So how about it? How about going back to having the deadline to say, 15 minutes before race start? Big Grin

Think about this (!) too from the 'Vanishing Teams' thread:

Looking at the time you posted this. It was because we were updating the Giro, which shuts down the game to update it.

Having that extra hour would give you time to update the Giro scores and we could get more time to choose our teams, especially with these races running at the same time! Big Grin
