USA Bro Challenge. Stage Four.

by Ghedebrav   August 21, 2014  

Er, I actually forgot to do my transfers for this one. My master plan is unravelling.

Anyone else? I've not really had chance to see any of these yet. Argy-bargy on stage 2 aside, has it been any good?

Well Jens has attacked! See how he gets on!
Be good if he can get a stage!

I brought in Viviani, Reijnen and Anderson (1,5,10) so I'll take that. Jacques-Maynes presumably got more KOM points - that's one of my better day one picks this season!

So with intended transfers would your score ave been better or worse?

Tvetkov was the killer - if I'd brought him in instead of Busche, I'd have won the stage. Wanted them both in for today anyway, didn't think it would really matter which one I brought in early. Never mind - green arrows anyway...

Probably about the same. Wanted to bring Busche in. Wouldn't have bothered with Viviani, he's let me down so many times!

Dux wins again, with a non-scorer too, but tbh honest he was lucky in a way his gamble paid off. Call it brave but I doubt he would have gone with that team had he been in the top 20 like me....however my team today is slightly brave

Aah - stage 6 - took out Hermans and Huzarski for Zoidl and Zirbel. The winning team for this stage was my exact team on stage 5. Balls

Man, that sucks when that happens. I should've brought in rosskopf for norris, but decided to save transfers for the sprint. Still sneaked a full house badge at least. I'm 102nd, feel like I've done better than that but not having reijnen on stage 1 or carpenter on stage 2 has probably cost me. I know the forum's gone a bit quiet on this race, but I've really enjoyed watching live cycling in the evening for a change. Tvetcov's face when crossed the line yesterday - he was utterly spent. So pleased for him that he held onto his podium spot, it was clear how much he wanted it.

Problem was the when the rain came down at the end it sent a tailwind up the hill meaning the GC guys couldnt help but beat all the other times.

Like you, I've enjoyed watching the tour tracker each evening and I'm pleased for Tvetcov
