I haven't got a bloody clue d'ya know that. I've done my transfers, but know I should have put geraint in, but it would have meant making 2 transfers to get one rider in position. I spent 2 days on a strategy to hopefully get the top 5 TTT teams and that went belly up, now I'm so out of shape it's not real.
I am however top of my regional league...oh did I say there is only 47 of us  26

didn't quite go according to plan for me either, fancied HTC for the win and i was spitting at the screen when they lost eisel on the first corner. That's those four seconds, right there.

was tempted to squeeze cav in as i fancy him for the stage 2mo but hushovd will be there or thereabouts, and he might even fancy a pop at the intermediate, he's not going to be in yellow forever so he might as well make hay  1

My TTT kinda went tits up aswell, i had 2 riders from Sky, HTC, Garmin and just because i knew Gilbert was going to get stage one, i had 2 from Omega, was hoping for a good showing from them

I did look at Cav, but i cant see him getting it, his tactics aren't working this year because they all know how to get into his train and when they do that, he sulks and sits up

Yup they need to split the train into 2 so the other teams don't know which one he will follw, that should work for a finish or 2

my problem is i cant afford a decent sprinter (maybe due to bad tactics) so that means its rojas for me again tomorrow

rojas is not a bad sprinter and good for stage 4.

I transferred out an AR to bring in a cheap Hincapie, thinking I had enough credit left to buy Cadel, and then realised I was 0.1 credits short. . . .  20

Dave Dave Dave, what are you doing putting the 0.1 on Cadel like that.

Thats my fantasy tdf scuppered here and now.. . . .
My only hope is that Gerdeman hangs in there now.  39

Yh ano he aint bad but would have prefered someone different for todays stage, but like you say i have him for stage 4 and allows me to bring gilbert back in but that may have to be at the expense of EBH tho

Thats very unfortunate, it can catch you out like that, especially this early on after the rider values had been reset

Thats how its done, just block Cav and push him off the train, Garmin win and Hushovd high up, i'm liking this cause he also gets a bonus for being in yellow and 5 extra from Farrar winning  19

Don't forget Hushovd also gets an extra 3 points for being 3rd in the Green Jersey too.

For the points update I think, rather than having everything on show mid updates it's now all being taken down and then scores and rider value changes are updated behind the scenes.

needs to borrow a couple of credits so i could get gilbert in for felliu. Although may just manage it if he gets 0.1 credit and if tejay does too, then can take tejay put in sandy casar and gilbert. will be gutted if i cant due to 0.1 credits

I'll concede a Martin, but raise you a Thomas (is it me, or is this getting all WH Audrey?)

Personally I'm not sure if Gilbert can take another stage win, my biggest headache is trying to guess who's going to end up in yellow tomorrow, whether Thor can keep it if I should try to squeeze in Cadel or even someone like Vino or Popovych as an outside bet.

I'm not sure about Gilbert winning, but he'll be there and Hushovd will keep yellow tomorrow, its the same kinda finish as stage 1

I don't reckon it's a long or steep enough hill for thor to get dropped. fingers crossed, anyway  1

Aye, fingers crossed, although I can see a breakaway staying away. With Gilbert favourite I doubt anyone else will want to chase back any breakaways and I don't know how much work OLO will want to do after Saturday.

Ok, a little switch about, bye bye TJ, Hello Kloden

So my men for tomorrow are

Kloden
Hushovd
Gilbert
Martin

thats the main 4, with a hope Jerome can keep last place and maybe get in a break, lol

Other 4 are

Mollema
Knees
Perez
Navadauskas (i think Garmin may put him in a break so they can say "we're not chasing it)
