Hello everyone,

Dave,

If i don't use the 4 transfers in stage 4 (Stage 4: Giovinazzo > Bari) ... in stage 5 i would have 6 transfers?

Best regards

Pedro

I thought about Tjallingi, but no KOMs today so although its a guaranteed 5 points, its unlikely to be any more. But if you were bringing him in for tomorrow anyway, then no reason not to do it a day early...

Finally put Kittel in my team  31 feel like i was the only one to not have him in  40

Manuel Belletti (AND)
Roberto Ferrari (LAM)
Michael Matthews (OGE)
Giacomo Nizzolo (TFR)

I've kept the same team - 7 sprinters (Sunday's top 5 plus Matthews and Hurel) plus Fedi and Boem. Could've brought in another sprinter (Ferrari?) but would be dropping straight out again tomorrow so would effectively have needed 20 points today just to break even.

Tomorrow though?! So many possibilities. Break stays away? A couple of under-the-radar puncheurs with a late attack? Or if one of the GC guys goes, the others will have to follow...

I've had a pretty good team so far so just one transfer for me (putting in Nizzolo) and leaving transfers for swapping sprinters out for climbers later in the week.

Damn you Kittel - couldn't you have announced that 30 minutes earlier?!

"So, the Giro got me earlier then I thought. Absolutely disappointed that I have to leave this beautiful race today because of a fever. :'((("

The consolation is that most people will have Kittel in their team

Fairer for everybody that it was announced after the deadline - those of us not permanently hooked up to cycling news feeds not being disadvantaged, though I did check that the transfer window wasn't open when I saw the news  3

Riders not racing at the moment, talking about neutralizing the stage.
Roads too slippy in the rain.

At the moment it is thought that the race will finish at the first passage of the finish line and the route around Bari will be neutralised.

It would be fairer for everyone if we all had the ability of wig_billy to pick winners as well. We all choose how much time we can/wish to spend on the game and it doesn't make it less fair if some of us spend more time on it than others. It's a competition.
Plus, your post was 4 mins before the race start so if the deadlines were tied to that time as they used to be, you would still have had time to change your time, permanently hooked up to feeds or not.

I've got no problem with when the deadlines are set, was just saying its a shame he hadn't decided earlier so those of us that noticed could have changed our teams. Working from home today, so that bit of luck might have gone some way to cancelling out the bad luck of having Dan Martin in my purists!

According to cycling news live feed, race is now confirmed as neutralized.

I think end time was taken at first crossing of finish line' but they raced for the intermediate sprint and may race the final circuit. They are still arguing though.

Time will be taken at the end of penultimate lap for general classification and then race for positions will be end of final lap.
