Boom won, followed by Vino and Wiggo.

Not a good start for my team at all, surprised martin finished outside the top 30

Looks like the rain made a lottery of the prologue.

Yeh same for me, i had evans and ribon, 7th and 8th which were expected and tjallingi 20th, and extra points for him due to boom. But those that i expected to do better including thomas, martin, zabriskie all in my team failed to deliver

Luckily I had Vino. I put him in more for the 1st stage, but he saved me here (a bit).

stop grumbling about your 5s and 10s. I scored another 0. I usually have a rabo rider but not today. At least none of them crashed out. Damn rain.

it was just before the first riders went off, so it wasn't actually raining while the prologue was on but the streets were wet.

Depends where you watched it too. Eurosport's coverage was late starting and jumbled, according to many on twitter.

MY fall back if they are streaming it is Eurosport audio stream in English coupled with any live coverage in any language with the sound turned down. However there are always some "live" differences

I don't know if it is ok to mention it here as I am not sure if it is a competing site but the site that sounds like a hors category climb on the tv is a good place to start looking for listings.
