Well the TdF forum was a bit quiet so maybe we can get some discussion going for the Vuelta. Here is my team, made 2 changes and hopefully enough sprinters to pick up a few points

JOSE JOAQUIN ROJAS (MOV) 
JEAN-PIERRE DRUCKER (BMC) 
ALEJANDRO VALVERDE (MOV) 
JOHAN ESTEBAN CHAVES (OGE) 
GIANNI MEERSMAN (EQS) 
NICCOLO BONIFAZIO (TFR) 
NIKIAS ARNDT (TGA) 
MAGNUS CORT NIELSEN (OGE) 
PETER KENNAUGH (SKY)

I also made 2 changes, I have the exact same team as yourself, except I have Gilbert where you have Kennaugh (purely because Im hoping Gilbert will be a threat tomorrow, so axed both Puccio and Kwiat)

Gone for it today as it might be more predictable than some stages?

Similar team though Sabragli and Battaglin for Valverde and Kennaugh.

What a mistake taking out Kwiatkowski indecision

 

Tossed between him and Gilbert and got it wrong

Got a feeling transfers are going to be like hens teeth towards the end of this Tour.

Good on you triccky100, the forum has been like a morgue lately.

I think there is a problem with KOM points.

The scoring notes indicate 3,2,1 points for a cat 3 climb, which would mean Pichon 3, Benedetti 2 and Nauleau 1 road.cc points.

Add the intermediate sprint Gilbert 6, Pichon 4, Nauleau 2, gives a total of Pichon 7, Benedetti 2 and Nauleau 3, which is not what is shown on the stage scoring page. (12, 6, 6).

I can't find mention of the most aggressive rider (do they have one in the Vuelta?), but another 10 points would not fit either.

Its not critical today, but later in the race KOM points will be critical to selection decisions. Could someone please sort this out (TER?), ie change stg 2 scores or ammend the scoring notes, or sort me out as to where I've gone wrong.

Cheers

Don't forget the 5 points pichon got for leading the KOM, so 4 for IM, 3 for Cat 3, 5 for leading comp. Bendetti got 2 for cat 3 and 4 for 2nd in mountain comp, Nauleau got 2 for IM, 1 for cat 3 and 3 for 3rd in that comp.

Hope thats cleared it up.

Couldnt find anything myself for most aggressive either

Derrr; Thanks TER; I just realised that myself; plus KOM positional points. Sometimes I can't see the wood for the trees. I'll sleep better tonight.

Cheers
