Stage 6 TdS

by Gkam84   June 16, 2011  

Thought i'd start is slightly earlier today rather than just posting the stage results because some people are asking for a thread during the race to discuss things in the stage

I know alot of you out there work, so wont be sitting watching it live, but i dont work just now, so will try and involves others watching it live

Sad news Juan Mauricio Soler from moviestar was in a crash and is in hospital with a fractured skull, so thought go out to him

4km to go and it could be anyone's, green and yellow are still there, 3 rabo and 3 leopard are there aswell

Got 1st, 3rd and 4th Big Grin Sadly a Ubuntu update last night broke Flash so I couldn't watch the finish. My thoughts go out to Soler and is family, a brilliant climber, head injuries are scary Sad

Today was not the stage to drop Mollema for Soler.

Seriously, though, hope he's OK. Head injuries are, as mentioned upthread, particularly scary. Anyone know how the spectator got involved in the incident?

152. Also highest ever! Soler had only just come back from injury. Thoughts go out to him.
Following article I read today is relevant

Took me a min to understand what you meant

I have so many words, but ARGH will do Crying

I've done enough work, time for you to lead me out, hurry along Big Grin

On a bonus note, back in the top 100 and didn't even beat my top score Big Grin

Well i've made a couple of transfers and if they come off tomorrow they will be called "inspired" Nerd

If they dont, then no loss because the guys i transferred out dont have a hope of scoring

I want to be beating 139 my highest, if not then one day in the season i want to end up top of the pile Big Grin

Did better today but I seem to be a step behind for this race. I will be even further behind come Saturaday & Sunday as I'm 'incommunicado' with no computer from tomorrow Angry so there will be no inspired transfers after Friday.

My nearest rival in the league can leap frog over me and take the lead Surprise

MY wishes go out to Soler, Just as he was back in form!

"I'll be back!"

Are you sure your team is eligible? If you have 3 riders from one team it does funny things.

I remember that day. Thought my score of 168 was a nailed on winner. Humbug.

I'm really pulling for a Lastras breakaway today after the disappointment of losing out on 33 points when I brought in Soler for Mollema. Still, 121 points on a mountain stage with no KM rider isn't too shabby.

Well Timbo, that day has to be the best I'll do all season. I feel like my form peaked a bit early there, especially since I'm planning on doing the fall classics. Wink Does that mean I'll have to take a dip in form right as the Tour is about to start? Uhoh...
