Hope he improves? he is like 18th overall, which is decent, came 13th on the last proper mountain stage. There can only be 10 people in the top, and are more than likely to be GC guys, he has been by far the best on the KM guys and the cheapest, not to moan about or to consider from where im sitting

everybody is in the same position though arent they? by which I mean, we could all do with 9 possible transfers per night but that's part of the game.

Just cos he's cheap doesn't mean he is crap, by far the best climber on the list and i think he will go even better in the alps Big Grin

Yeah Uran is one of the cheaper climbers, but there is another one, even cheaper who is up there everyday and not in the KM cat, he'll be coming into my team shortly Big Grin

Uran is the only rider I haven't changed so far and I can't see any reason to do so yet, but as a lot of other people have him it doesn't make much difference to the game.

I haven't looked at his team. I don't know where he is in the standings.

Me neither but he usually brags about his team the night before a stage. Smile

@squiggle I see you are quite high! We got the same points today, but with a couple of different riders. If Sammy had won I would have been a bit ahead of you. I'm just above you but I don't think either of us are going to catch scorekeeper. He's a very canny player. Who's your sprinter? I've stuck with Rojas for a while after Thor lost yellow.

"just" above me... "JUST!" no you're WELL above me! I really can't believe I'm up there myself, you must be stoked/ s**ting yourself! I made up 7 places today but I see that the gaps are bigger above me but a lot smaller below me. Anyway good luck in the final week, Contador can still win the tour (That was a metaphor by the way, he wont get a place on my team!). I had Ten Dam in today and I thought he'd have placed pretty well if he hadn't crashed.

My current sprinter is Hinault. I won't get green bonuses but I needed the cash to react to all eventualities, and I'm confident that my 2 new DS boys can combine to outdo any other combo. You'll have to wait until tomorrow to find out who they are but you're above me anyway so you must have made some pretty good descisions!
