Vuelta stage 9

by Joelsim   August 31, 2014  

Is anyone going to miss out today? Tricky climb at the end, with a flat bit for the last km which should suit Valverde and J-Rod.

Are there a few penalty points to be considered here amongst the road.cc top teams?

There seems to have been a big break, but not having much luck finding out who is in it

Break of 27 and a break of 16 ahead of the peloton. Anacona in the first group so the peloton should keep it reasonably tight as he's only 2'50" back.

Too drunk when I did my transfers, was totally intending to bring in anacona, but it appears I forgot and inexplicably picked ellisonde instead. Gutted!

Have a feeling it's going to be a low scoring stage.

I wouldn't worry about those, they are being cut by Dave if enrique doesn't do it himself. There is no excuse for 229 teams TER.

I think the score for Anacona is wrong? 35 for stage win, 3pts for second on cat 2, 4 points for second in mountains and 7 points for 4th in GC which makes 49 I think, rather than the 45 scored?
