4 races in the game today, that must be a first!

Hamburg deadline 9am, Cav a late addition, Sam Bennett looks like he's dropping out with a cold. Would like greipel to win but has he recovered well enough?
Women's deadline 10am, I'm 7th in that comp somehow. Have got four big guns and five cheap ones, could backfire hideously...
Vuelta deadline 11am, sprinters won't get many chances this tour but people are saying it could be windy, I hope they can hold it together. Just realised I have no OPQ riders which is surely an error if the wind blows.
Colorado deadline 4pm, sprint to finish off, depends how many transfers people have saved I guess. Voigt's last day in the saddle, will he go one last time?

Should be a fun day anyway!

Open Suede Vargarda and it has been confirmed that Lizzie Armitstead has won the World Cup. She has led the competition from start to finish and becomes the first Brit since Nicol Cooke in 2006 to win the competition.  41 36

I think Pawlowska is wrong, that was Lizzie, but we'll wait and see, because Lizzie finished ahead of Johansson on the live stream

Hamburg - 1 Kristoff 2 Nizzolo 3 Gerrans 4 Appollonio 5 Cavendish 6 Kittel 7 Cimolai 8 R Kreder 9 Lobato 10 Dillier

Greipel crashed, got back to the peloton but was near the back when they hit the last climb and got dropped. 1,4,6,9 for me...

EDIT - might not be correct, another source has Farrar in 4th with Appollonio 11th. Wait and see I guess.

I honestly think four comps in one day is too exhausting. Anyway, my Super Sunday:
Vargarda - rubbish
Vattenfall - mediocre, but wasn't expecting much anyway
Vuelta - disappointingly mediocre

I hope the USA will turn things around, a decent day there might get me a podium spot  38 . Having just one competition going from tomorrow on will feel like a vacation...  39

Mine pretty similar to your day today. Average to middling on everything although I did get 1,2 in Vattenfall.

5th on the stage in the wwc, or maybe 4th as gkam's score looks a tad suspicious  3

Would have tied for the win at Vattenfall without my late transfers, getting rid of Gerrans for Alaphillipe and Appollonio, cost me 15 points, hey ho still 6th on the stage
