Suisse stage 6

by Joelsim   June 19, 2014  

I have a feeling I've been a little trigger-happy on taking out Modolo and Coquard, as maybe even Cav and Lobato today.

Oh well, here's hoping for a reduced bunch sprint and a breakaway of the GC names!

Michael Albasini (OGE)
Ben Swift (SKY)
Tom Dumoulin (GSH)
Tom Jelte Slagter (GRS)
Peter Sagan (CAD)
Reto Hollenstein (IAM)
Davide Formolo (CAD)
Ion Izaguirre (MOV)
Linus Gerdemann (MTQ)

Putting in the yellow jersey plus the 2 big Swiss Cheeses(Panzer,Spartacus and Albasini) for the sprint guys(Cavendish,Kristoff and Coquard).

Martin,Boonen,Degenkolb,Cancellara,Albasini,Fumeaux,Tschopp,Kessiakoff,Roy.

Hardly matters from 521st place At Wits End

Yep I have put riders in today on the basis of TT and GC. Martin and 2 others I suspect will be going in tomorrow. Undecided whether to put Dowsett in just for one stage, but may well do. I'll be making my changes tonight after the England match so no doubt I will wake up tomorrow and wonder what the hell I've done.

I hope the English keeper doesn't wake up with the same feeling

Isaichev,Guarnieri,Venter and Albasini Love Struck are your break for the day

Wyss couldn't bridge across and I think they sent Fumeaux back due to his decent GC position?

Sure was. Looks like the majority of the top teams in the .cc standings have Albasini in for today.

Can anyone enlighten me on the KOM points for today as I find it quite difficult to work out based on 'The number of scoring riders on a KOM climb is the maximum number of points available. So if five riders score, the first rider will receive 5 points down to 1 point for the fifth rider'.

That means nothing to me.

eg for a cat 2 climb in the race, riders score 8,6,4,2,1 ie 5 riders score so in the game, they will receive 5,4,3,2,1 fantasy mountain points. For a cat 4, both real and fantasy points are 3,2,1 etc.

Pretty sure it means that if 5 riders score points in the race itself then 5 riders score in the fantasy game...5 for 1st,4 for 2nd,3 for 3rd,2 for 4th and 1 for 5th man over regardless of the actual points scored in the race itself?

That would mean that a cat HC, cat 1 and a cat 2 in Suisse would all be 5,4,3,2,1 which seems a bit odd.

And NO points for an official summit finish apart from for finishing positions and competition standings.

If so, it's a bit odd of the TdS organisers. Normally you'd expect more riders to score, the higher the category of mountain, as well as more points for the leader over the climb.

Cycling News ticker.

It didn't actually say 'Trentin', it said Cav's teammate abandoned and as he came in with Trentin I assumed that it was him.

Don't worry Joelsim, just that it may be better to put "i Think" or according to sources when you post such definitive statements can be taken wrongly. I have learned to trust nothing that I read, although Having Guardini in my purist team would suggest otherwise. lol.

Not bad - had Albasini in the break, Swift and Sagan at the finish, plus 15 points for Tony Martin. My other transfer was Cancellara - was probably going to bring him in for tomorrow anyway but thought there was half a chance he would have a go today. Would've been better off keeping Modolo as it turns out, but it could just as easily have worked out really nicely.

Right - best check which TTers are left, I've not really been paying attention this week!

Edit - make that 20 points for Tony, he came in 16th as well!
