Quickstep have Johnatan Narvaez in their team.
He is still showing as not competing and should score 5 points for an assist today.
Could you investigate please?
Last minute change in the start list that fell through the cracks, he's now in and De Plus is out.
I missed the cutoff (a) because I forgot , but (b) the cutoff time was over an hour before the race start. Couldn't the cutoff time be closer to the start?
Was this just today's stage?
Edit: I've changed the cut-off because the stage is now starting later. They've shortened the route due to weather. I've added some time for transfers.
Great race so far this Catalunya lark. Slightly easier to negotiate than that Terrino race for sure...well for us newbies anyway...
Second overall after 4 stages in the standard game...crikey...still having no luck whatsoever in my purist teams though. Kiss of death to most riders....
Good work Winston! Yes, with so few sprinters here and a hilly parcours it is slightly easier to manage. That being said, I completely messed up yesterday, but I have a few transfers left to rectify the situation.....hopefully.
What did you do Andy?...
also...Are there points available at the top of all those small hills on the last stage?...
I'm now top after five stages with 5 transfers left but that last stage is confusing me?...If there 's a pts bonanza for intermediates to be had then it has TDG written all over it for another haul.
I just haven't made any transfers since stage 3.
It's not sprints, but the finishing circuit has a cat 3, and there will be points for each summit
Really....And how many seconds for each one for the riders?
None, it's just KOM.
Done my transfers Andy and left two for the final day. One will be for Quintana > TDG and the other one i will keep under my hat. A stage like that is made for the excitment of TDG...sadly no amount of mountain climbing or GC rank can replace the excitment of the maverik TDG...Agreed?
Stage 6 has been shortened to 117km due to snow. I'm trying to find the new profile, but the stage is also starting later.
Holy crap I won stage 6
Hey guys, did you miss Roberto Ferrari's points today? He's showing as zero in my team but I thought he finished right up there...
Lemme check, I'm sure I got him.
Edit: Gave 'em to the wrong Ferrari....It's been a long week.
Edit 2: So I didn't win the stage.....curses
Fantasy Tour of Catalunya has a winner...AND IT'S ME...!!...whoo hoo..
Nice one dude! By nearly 50 points too! Nice effort.
I might start doing some 'round up' posts every now and then to highlight who's had a good game. I did it last year for the grand tours, but it might encourage forum participation.
Indeed it may Andy....and i hope so. There must be a few ways of encouraging some more convo...
After much consideration last night, I decided to remove Simon Yates from my roster. BIG CALL. When I checked results this morning (Down Under) ... you guessed it, he wins
BUT ... I replaced him with Soler who actually scored more points.
Sometimes it just works out.
Good call runaround. He was tipped on Mytwospokesworth for the win but a points haul was even better.
I was top before the day started so i had an easier call by bringing Yates inwards instead. I just had to look at who those below me had to preserve my lead...so i did Quintana > Yates because nobody had Quintana and they all had Yates...
Stage 7 scoring
I think the 2 sprints have been scored 3,2, 1 instead of 6,4,2 points
So they have, fixed now. I was concentrating too hard on getting the mountain points right.
