Giro D'Italia Stage 3

by stumps   May 11, 2014  

Another bunch sprint beckons before the rest day. Most teams will be very similar so some high scores all round unless there's an upset from a breakaway but i cant see it happening to be honest.

Plus top of the KOM classification, so 17 points for him today.

I was rather hoping he wouldn't take the intermediate sprint but Chicchi got 10 and has another chance on Tuesday when Tjallingi will only score 5 and can have a rest. Might have both later.

One of the few with Appollonio I think.

1-5, 7, 11, 16 plus Durbridge. Another full house! 2nd of the year, (although I don't have badges).

You're keeping sprinters until Friday?

Why is Tjallingii only down for 17 points?

5 pts for KOM leader
6 pts for 2 KOMs on the stage
6 pts for winning the intermediate sprint
10 pts for most combative as per the official website

That's 27 points

1,2,3,4,5,16,17 and Tjallingii. I brought in Appollonio.

One short of a full house Sad

196 out of a possible 218 points

Best result ever Big Grin

Just need to find a good replacement for Landa. Think I'll leave everyone else where they are for the moment.

Edit: Even better after the update another 10 points for Tjallingii, so now 206 out of possible 228 Big Grin Big Grin

Did Nightrider 2013 and 2014 for Parkinson's UK. Might just have one last go in 2015.

Nor sure if anyone else is seeing this, but for some reason since stage three was updated when i look at the purist league my teams score does not include yesterdays stage (it shows correctly within my team page), I asked my partner to check her team and hers seems ok. So it isn't happening to everyone.

I wouldn't! Well, maybe one or two of the punchy ones, but neither stage five nor six will come down to a sprint (in my view anyway).

Both look tailor-made for the heroic breakaway win, which basically means I have no idea who to pick for them. Thinking

Well Kittel is still 10 pts short for stage 2. If Tjallingi received the points for the combativity award, Kittel should too...

On combativity we're scoring the fuga pinarello, not the fighting spirit. Tjallingi won it on stage 2 and stage 3

How do you work that out? He got 50 points in stage 2.

Win 35
Points 5
Combativity 10

Edit: weird, he now is only showing 40 on the graph.

Edit 2: my team got 170 yesterday, but is now showing 160

What's going on?

Maybe it was the update of stage two that has broken the purist league for me by taking out my stage two score?

That's fair, but personally I'd think the Premio Combattività would be more fitting because it's literally the combativity award. Thinking

I think the scoring information for each stage should be updated to make it clear the Fuga Pinarello is being scored not the Combativity prize as the definition in the scoring info and Kittel's score yesterday indicated that was the one being scored. I don't care which one is scored or even if both are as they're both part of the Giro, but it should be clear to every player of the game, not just those who follow or contribute to the forum, which one is being scored.

it literally translates as the combativity award, certainly. that's not the same thing though.

Yay! Smile You learn so much (!) here! Applause I didn't know there were 2 so similarly 'worded' Thinking or 'spririted' Thinking awards (!). It's kind of cool, too, that they actually monitor the kilometers a rider is out on breaks! Thaks, Dave! Big Grin

Tjallingi really (!) put on a show on both stages(!). This game rocks! Applause Thanks (!)... Big Grin

The reason I pulled this up with Dave after doing the scores today, the Premio Combattività does mean combative, but it also included the intermediate (which we score) the climb (which we score) and the finish (which we also score). So it seems a bit crap to just give another bonus to the stage winner everyday.

The Fuga is basically what the the combat jersey is in other tours, the guy that stays away the longest.

Fuga
The Fuga Pinarello prize is to reward an attacking rider, namely those who go in a breakaway and refuse to give up. The leader of the classification shall be the rider who has accrued the higher number of breakaway kilometres.

Fighting spirit
Each day points go to the first rider at the intermediate sprint, at the top of a climb and the finish too. A separate prize goes to the rider to get the most points from this daily combination, the combative prize.

Personally, I think combative should mean combative. Escape is something different. The combativity didn't go to the stage winner today - and if the break goes to the end, you're just going to wind up giving extra points to the stage winner anyway.
Also, combative doesn't necessarily mean km's in the break in other races - can be decided by jury, or by other criteria - it's up to the organisers.
Having said all of which, it's an arbitrary decision to be made by the game organisers - I just don't see much point in trying to justify one choice or the other because there are perfectly good reasons to choose either one.
