I couldn't find a way of getting GVA in without dropping Spartacus, so decided against it. Expecting that to be my downfall...

Gilbert
Cancellara
Thomas
Boom
Vanendert
Jeannesson

Should be an interesting day. Quite why I thought Pozzato would be a good pick is anyone's guess.

My plan was Wellens and Vanendert but couldn't quite afford Wellens, he looked strong yesterday though...

Shame about Cancellara, the 10-point pen to swap for GVA would've been worth it after all. Go Van Melsen I guess!

Good for me but could've been so much better, I had a good feeling about Wellens but couldn't squeeze him in (or GVA) due to my misguided faith in Cancellara. Should've had at least one of them - schoolboy error!

1,2,4,5,7,9,20 + Van Melsen (if he got any breakaway points, dunno). No points from Quinziato, he's dumped.

Went Gilbert over GVA in order to accommodate Quinziato, which is a bit annoying, but very happy to have gone with my gut in choosing Wellens.

I was just going to write that same question. How does 5th on the stage for Thomas and 6th on GC add up to 7?

Finally I got one stage right in this comp... 1,2,3,4,5,6,9,12... had Jeannesson been able to hold Boom's wheel on the descent, I would have won this stage, I think, even though I had 20 pens... At Wits End

I wish I had more patience... Waiting But clicking on on 'Refresh' 12 times a minute doesn't really help... At any rate, next year, can you separate the updating of a competition from the availability to select riders for another competition, so we don't have to wait until the updating is done to be able to select riders for the next race or stage, please?... Waiting

Going back to things to read while we wait, can we have a screen that says 'The game started updating at 15:45. You have been waiting 15:56 minutes. Please wait a few minutes longer. And relax. Remember, you do this for fun! Smile We will be back shortly.'
