Tour de Suisse stage 4

by Joelsim   June 16, 2014  

Interesting choices for this stage. A bit hilly but likely to be a sprint.

Loads of sprinters in the race including some expensive ones.

Cav
Mezgec
Goss
V Popp
Sagan
and many more.

Who are you going for?

Ciolek is my worry today.....perhaps I should have picked him ahead of Tommeke?

I have a high strike rate for regretting NOT selecting people this season Laughing

Yep, Boonen is a strange choice.

Mind you he will probably win now I've said that.

Taking out Mollema, Dennis, Albasini and Chernetskiy worked out exactly to Cav, Degenkolb, Coquard and Modolo. This was too perfect not to trade.

Of course, now Kristoff, Sagan and DVP will podium

Is Wiggo protesting against not being in the TdF line up or what.. Supposed team leader, riding at the back on his own AGAIN, he might as well just go home....And now he has fell off...... Sad

I brought in Cav, Sagan, Modolo and Coquard, and kept Mollema. So many sprinters, I just picked the first four I thought of and didn't think too much about it. Looking forward to it, not seen a proper sprint for a while...

Although a bit concerned about Swifty and Coquard.

There's a distinct absence of Giant riders in there.

What were they doing back there? Did they go for the sprint first time round or can't they count to two?

Unlucky, ive only had 1 stage win this year, you will get one soon enough.

I got 63 in the end so could have been worse. All set though now until the TT. And I think I have a decntish plan in mind, so that I only need the odd penalty for stage 8. (the problem being who to pick for 8 and 9, Mollema my only dead cert), think he will win the overall

Thinking with my team defo Sagan and Swift, Degenkolb should and poss Kristoff can be at the finish for stage 6, but I don't think Cav will and maybe not Labato, so hoping thats where my team pays off. Also think Shurter will do well that stage too.

Having Thurau in for mountains is working well too.

Do you think many sprinters will make it over the high mts on Fri. I am bankin on the climbers getting away and staying away, with maybe only one or two breakaways winning the stage.

Its a marathon, not a snickers

Friday? isn't that the ITT? If you mean thursday I I thin Sagan will win it, Swift and Degenkolb should make it, and a decent form Kristoff may too, someone like a Bennati could figure too, Mollema has a decent sprint for a climber, maybe Albasini, or Rui Costa

No points points, or youth points has a strong effect...
