I wish I could put Nibali in but I ran out of transfers.

It will be interesting to see how Scarponi does.

created some points last stage to get him in for this, fingers crossed he does well. everything very unpredictable so far. Got in Sagan last time and he has his first bad race of the year!

ah Mr Tullett, how is your team doing? I am 600 and somethingth at the moment. My tactics were immaculately prepared but the best laid plans of mice and men as usual deteriorated quickly.....

so-so, about the same as you, had a great start in the Tour de France but not so good this time, 15 is my worst ever stage by a long way. However it's early in the race and one or two good stages could change things fast. Still got Mollema, who saved me today and brought in Taaramae, but he may be knackered from TdF. Got to get in more climbers and break guys as sprinters are a waste of space. Put in too many for Stage 2 and not the right ones!

how on earth does one select break guys? That is a complete mystery to me.

If i told you that, i'd have to puncture your tyres Devil

I wouldn't worry to much, just looked at the top 2 overall

Jau scored 4 points and eaju scored 8 points today and they are the "best" guys overall throughout the season Surprise

I managed 9 points yesterday. Guaranteed that on a day I pick Boonen, Chavanel will do well (and vice-versa). I don't have either today Wink

Nice pick with Lastras! Don't know much about him, can he climb? Is he going to try an Arroyo/ Voeckler et al?

I think Rodriguez will win today, seems to be in good form!

Well I managed what I thought was a fairly respectable 30, only to see someone had both lastras and chavanel, tripling my score. Infuriating. Today I'm pinning my hopes on nibali, taaramae, mollema and le mevel. Wasn't great to see the latter's fall yesterday, mind, having already picked my team for today.

Don't buy upgrades. Ride up grades. (Merckx)

Despite three days where I've expected to plummet down the rankings, it appears that I have plummeted at a much lower rate than everyone else, leaving me in 16th.

As it is the highest rank I have ever achieved in Fantasy anything, and am ever likely to achieve I just wanted to commemorate the fact Big Grin

It's entirely possible of course that there are only 30 people actually playing the Vuelta stages and the other 4000 think the game finished in July.
