Tdf Stage 10

by Gkam84   July 12, 2011  

Whats going on with all the froggies up the road??

Its messing with me because 2 of them were my picks for Bastille day, now i'll have to take another look at who might go for that

De Gregorio and Minard were going in my team for the 14th, but not anymore

I filled my team with a bunch of frenchies and a token italian, cause i fancied a bastille-esque day. the actual bastille day stage is a bit tough and won't be won on the break.

Needless to say i picked the wrong frenchies. and italian.

Is your token italian from astana? i've got my eye on him now Vino is gone

Gesink not doing well again today, had to be told by the team to start today Angry

I want him gone because the team is so much better than him this year, got a couple of Rabo's in my team and also Taaramae Devil

I hope Voeckler doesn't finish in the top twenty otherwise I'll feel really stupid for not drafting him in Sad

Damnit!!! What was Gilbert thinking???? Obviously trying to please the Gorilla with a stage win! Bollox! I knew I should have swapped in Feillu just thought he looked a bit off last stage! Sad

Is there something wrong with Petacchi? Except one stage, haven't seen him competing at the front at all. Thinking

Actually chill! He only lost 2 points to Feillu in the end. No Galimzyanov though! Plain Face

Actually scratch that all is well. Didn't count GC, Gilbert equal with Feillu. Not so bad apart from Galimzyanov no show! Smile

Same here, Thomas, Jerome, Bonnet, Gilbert, Feillu, Rojas and Kloden all scoring, only non-scorers were Uran and Galimzyanov so it could have been worse.

Nice team drheaton, seems you will score 15 points more than me for having thomas and jerome, whereas i have taaramae and jeannsson, so apart from that mine is the same as yours

I have Di Gregorio and Delaplace and they saved my day. I hope Galimzyanov will go for the bunch sprint tomorrow
otherwise I just have Boasson Hagen to score.

Thanks, I took a risk on Feillu in place of Voeckler to try and make up some points, my only dillema now is how quickly to start moving out sprinters for climbers. I don't really want to drop any sprinters but I also don't want to fall behind on the first day in the mountains Sad

Also, what does everyone reckon, will Kloden keep up in the Pyrenees or is everyone going for Evans/Schleck/Contador?

Seems like the leaders have already switched to mountain goats, the top score being just 95!

Well done @drheaton, top score.

Dave, I think you've mixed up Sam Sanchez with Luis Leon Sanchez?

I didn't bother to much with this stage, i've got my eyes on the hills, so my team doesn't have a sprinter thats in the race, was kinda hoping for Galimzyanov to get in the points Sad

took kloden out for van garderen, but otherwise not too bad. Popoviz out though, never mind scored zilch for me, might leave him in greyed out for tomorrow.

@storeys - you get 10 points for being the lanterne rouge ie coming last. Jerome is your man! I have him in every team as he is a guaranteed 10 points.

Woohoo! I managed to make up all of 9 points on 1st place Sad That gets me back about a quarter of what I lost on Sunday (stupid Voeckler).

Dave, is there any chance you can quickly implement some for of transfer carry over system so I can leave my sprinters in tonight and use 4 transfers tomorrow? Ta!

Thought about having Vichot but went with Delange. damn! Otherwise so-so. Think I'll keep in Gilbert. Now Greipel's got his win he'll prob. be a bit more selfish tomorrow. The idea was to burn off Cav but it nearly didn't work. Cav caught up a bit on ponts, but I had Rojas, which I might have to review.

@londonplayer - duh, silly me, that was the one aspect i hadn't checked... yes, have always found one or two of the lantern rouges good for a few points!

Was thinking of bringing in Gadret last night. Eventually, didn't.

And then just saw on twitter that he's pulled out of the Tour blaming fatigue! Oh boy!
