Skoda FL

Is now live. Link on the road.cc homepage.

The only differences I can see are the 175 credits and the fact you have 50 transfers to use in total.

I saw I had moved slightly above you (at least for today anyway). Quite pleased as I was over 100 behind I think.

Mind you having just made 6 transfers I am struggling now, going to have to bypass a stage completely.

That's what I have basically done with these last two stages ....Only lost 5 places and I'm set for the next few days and less than 80 points off top spot , and i have enough transfers to see me safely to Paris (6 sprinters for that day so options covered )

Yes I think I will miss stage 19. Just put a couple of TTers in for stage 20 and then 5 for the final day.

We have 7 the same, and with only 10 points in it. I can't see J-Rod winning the stage (double points), I saw tomorrow as better for him picking up points, but we shall see

I have Bardet and Voeckler where you have J-Rod and Delage

He will score tomorrow, but I see it as being tough now for him today after he didn't get into the break.

They have two choices, they keep the break in check and hope he takes the points at the Cat 1, but then Nibs could still take the jersey with a stage win. Or they try and hang in for him to compete at the finish, but i just can't quite see him being strong enough to get high enough into the top 10 on the stage to take enough points. But I could be proven completely wrong

Touch and go if I am going to run out of transfers before Paris. My best option is to skip Sundays stage now. I misjudged the early stages and have been playing catch up in both games but with the withdrawals the catch up possibilities have vanished. I will probably struggle to get top 50 now, Unless others have used more transfers than me which seems unlikely.

Stage 14
2,3,4,5,9 and j rod

17 transfers left of which I'm using 6 over the next 2 stages ....6 across 19 and 20 which should see me in a strong postion for Paris transfers ....I'm banking on those above me running out by the ITT

Kristoff , sagan and gva for me tomorrow.... the climb before the finish then the uphill drag for the last km sort of led me to those 3 .....I'm hoping it works as looking at the ppl above me some are already low on transfers and haven't bothered for today's stage

Cheers Chiv, was a good battle, could have gone either way. And my decision not to tinker for the final 3 mountain stages after id made my choice, was probably the biggest changer in the end. Gave me enough transfers for the end (although easily could have axed J-rod and maybe made a few more points).
