VaE stage 2

by Joelsim   August 24, 2014  

John Degenkolb (GSH)
Fabio Felline (TFR)
Jens Debusschere (LTB)
Andrea Guardini (AST)
Michael Matthews (OGE)
Jonathan Castroviejo (MOV)
Tom Boonen (OPQ)
Koldo Fernandez (GRS)
Moreno Hofland (BLK)

Expecting echelons now.

No Bouhanni or Sagan, too expensive. Probably a big mistake.

He did, so I had a quick £1 E/W on Gatto at 200/1.

1,2,9,10,12 for me, waiting for Felline to come in. Hoping he rolls in last so I at least get 10 points in before I drop him.

There are 2 people in my team who I have decided I'm never picking again. Boonen and Koldo Fernandez.

Happy with that for only the second stage.

There are no stupid questions, just stupid people.

Glad it was just bad luck for him. Normally, I have a principle with Guardini: never pick him, unless he's so cheap that taking a chance on him is pretty much like taking a usual chance on a 3 point rider. Today I broke that principle, and was prepared to take radical decisions about him like Joelsim above (by the way, Koldo is forever out for me since Basque Country earlier in the year).

Bouhanni too expensive. Stuyven saved me, sort of. Hope he does another good ride tomorrow.

I had Styven yesterday.

Which cheers me up no end.

Especially as I used 10 penalty points to swap him out for Debusschere today.

Ok... time for a joke then... ''An Englishman, a Scotsman, and an Irishman walk into a pub and each order a pint of Guinness. Just as they are about to drink up, three flies land in each of their pints, and get stuck in the thick head. The Englishman pushes his beer away in disgust. The Scotsman fishes the fly out of his beer and continues to drink it as if nothing had happened. The Irishman picks the fly out of his beer too, but holds it out over the beer and yells “Spit it out! Spit it out! You bastard!”

I imagine that the USA Pro race will have finished before updating completes, so perhaps just combine all 4?

Can't combine race results.

I have done Vuelta and Womens, had to redo Vuelta because combative was missing

What ! I demand a recount.
Can the biggest bigwig at road.cc contact the Vuelta organising committee and demand 10 good reasons why Van Rensburg wasn't the most combative?
And if that doesn't work, escalate the matter to Gary Imlach and King Juan Carlos, and send the navy in !
