Stage 13; Discuss.

by Squiggle   July 15, 2011  

Reckon a break by EBH or Hejesdal today. Hope so anyway as they're both in my team along with Contador, Zubeldia, Farrar, Riblon, Bertagnoli, Barredo, and Devenyns. Devil

I guess Petacchi, Hushovd, EBH and Bak will drop back after the IS.

Roy could do win loads of points today but wonder how much he's got in his legs after y'day.

Pineau seems the guy in there who can last the distance. Anyone got him?

Looks more like a launch pad for a Boassen Hagen stage win to me. Thinking

There's no way all of those guys in the break will stay out over the aubisque, surely?

I fancy that a couple of decent climbers could break from the main pack and still win this one. they only have 4 mins.

No fighting for the IS points!

Seems like everyone's aiming to stay till the end. Half of them can climb better, other half can descend really well. Any bets... other than EBH for Squiggle?

Thor Bloomin' Hushovd eh! What a ride, wonder if Moncoutie will be patriotic and work with him if he gets up to him.

Here comes my man Vanendert now... better late than never but can't see him staying out until they catch the group in front.

Go on Jelle please save my day!!!!

If Hushovd wins today, as seems likely, I'm picking Roy in my team for tomorrow. I'm sure he'll go again...

Only a win today can keep him quiet tomorrow Smile

Right, outta the top 10 finishers i've had 5 of them in my team lately

If i score under 50 points today i think i'm just gonna give up on everything and press delete because its now spoiling rather than enhancing my viewing of the tour cause i'm shouting at the tv Sick

Turned out I didn't have Gilbert in my team. Forgot I had swapped him for Frank yesterday Sad

Need Vincent Jerome in LR to push my total above 50 today Plain Face

Hope Dave didn't do too well today either, I was finally withing 5 points of him y'day... though have a feeling he had Thor in his team today.

... of course, chapeau to the god of thunder! Thought his defence of MJ was good, today he took it to another level Smile

Best TdF in recent years?

Dave didn't have Hushovd yday, so hopefully not today else he's going to be right on my tail in the overall

I dont know if Jerome is last cause he came in near 10 mins down and pile came in 22 mins down Confused

Not the best TdF in recent years, but after 2moro it could be

There... that ensures I get my 2nd lowest score in this TdF ... 44 by my calculation. Crying

Also decided I'm running 2 teams in the Vuelta - my team and those I swap out of my team. Plain Face

I could run 45 teams in the Vuelta and still not get a decent score if its anything like the TdF

I'm fecked for 2moro tho, cause i want to take Contador out and put schleck in, but i also want to get rid of Hoogerland and Jerome, but i think Jerome will come good again tomorrow and drop enough time to get it back Devil

This stage was made for Hushovd, and I was too blind to see it. He's done it before. I did get excited that Riblon might come good. This tdf is doing my head in. Snd I took Hushovd out my puny halfords team too yesterday.
