Profile shows 2 sprint points, but Cycling News lists 3. And the Pro Challenge website shows in the points total that from stage 1, Reijnan has increased by 6 (2, 2nd places in int sprints), Summerhill inc by 3 (1, 2nd place), Magner has inc by 10 (from 0), (2, 1st places) and Carpenter has inc by 5 (from 0), (1, 1st place).
Confused; so am I. Can anyone shed light on this?

I say again, "Stage information for USA Pro Challenge needs scoring notes (ie finish, sprint and KOM) added." If we don't have this info, we are just guessing as to how the game is scored.

Not quite sure how what your saying relates to how the game is scored regarding scoring notes. Sprints are scored by the normal score of 6,4,2.

What your confused by seems to be the profile. The route has 3 sprint points, and they have been scored in the game as you have highlighted above with who won the sprints and who came 2nd.

That's what my team are, and why I have lost interest.

To be honest with about 80% American unknowns it is less than ideal anyway, and not just because they are unknown.

Not sure yesterday's scores are correct, have Reijnan's overall sprint points have been given to Magner?
