Stage 20 : Monte Zoncolan

by chiv30   May 31, 2014  

Well I'm either gonna drop like a stone today and tomorrow or gain a place or two.....made 2 changes for today

Arredondo & wilko out , Duarte and pellizoti in , hoping the gamble gains me a few points today ....but I'm wondering if basso will go in the break ...he has won on the zoncolan after all Thinking

4 transfers for tomorrow too. The best for me would be poor performances from Duarte and Uran, and good results for Wilco, Ryder and Pierre. Also if Dupont could do something.

Quintana
Majka
Aru
Pozzovivo
Rolland
Hesjedal
Kelderman
Henao
Dupont

Let's pray Ryder does something as we were both foolish enough to put him in. It has probably cost me a prize as others have Cataldo.


I am confused Alan, above u said you got Cataldo in break, then here you say worried cause others have him ? Silly
Am I reading everything upside down tonight ? lol

Some, maybe all of the three above me, I'm 4th overall, have Cataldo so if he scores points it makes no difference. They score as well. I know they don't have Ryder and are very unlikely to have brought him in. They don't have Duarte or Wellens so those two might score me useful points depending on who they brought in yesterday, assuming they have the transfers. I've got 4 for tomorrow and I've decided what to do. I'm sure all the top three will keep 4 for tomorrow, five would be better.

Does second in the mountain table get you some world tour points? Cataldo Monsalve again.

We'll, first and third have Cataldo, second has Monsalve so assuming no changes a small gain on second at the moment.

No-one has Duarte or Wellens.

Gap break is going out again. They've split but should all regroup by the bottom I should think.

Goodnight Vienna as far as the Giro is concerned now for my team.

No Uran in my team, and Ryder and Wilco crack straight away.

Wellens has done very well but only a few points today. The GC didn't score many points though but if PolishDave had Monsalve and Cataldo he's done well today.

These Giro organizer's rarely get much right, Banner drop in front of break away last year, shamozzles this year, then all those police shoulder to shoulder in last few hundred metres, yet riders harrassed all the way up hill, stupid....
See Woult Poels grab and throw that fans sunnies. Nairo nearly get pushed off, Bongo pushed into Rogers wheel, then same bloke again later. Rogers palming bloke off earlier. Fair dinkum, Euro fans getting right up there with Soccer Hooligans! Surprise what! lol

Waaaa Waaaaa !

Yeah, but only a kid first GC I think and this one fo the most famous climbs in the world AND he had a big week attacking....he got a huge future, as do bongo, Aru , Preidler.
P.s. How easy was Nairo travelling Cool

Wellens definitely one for the future but more the Tour than Giro or Vuelta I think.

Wellens didn't ride break either, he rode up that hill with Uran and Nairo, that's an effort !

Think you will find he was in the break, well bridged to the break when intwas down to about a 2 minute gap. He certainly didn't ride up with Quintana and co

Talking of budgets, just had a look at some of the values for the Dauphine guys. That is going to be a tough call.

Quite correct, tho he wasn't in Break, he was in chase with zardini and Quen, taking off at 65km. My apologies on that one. Still impressed Smile

It gives you some idea but I imagine they'll be repriced with the rolling 12 month data
