Rest Day 1

by londonplayer   August 29, 2011  

I'm going to be really bored without any cycling action so I'm hoping we can keep each other entertained until Wednesday's stage.

I've already used all of my 4 transfers. Didn't want to spend hours pouring over the stats to work out who should be in or out. Anyhow, I think its more obvious now who to pick. I predict some big scoring for everyone.

I should have put Kessi in ages ago but have only just done it. Think I've made a mistake there.

Was on hols for the first 6 days with no internet access so playing catch up, 137 points yesterday helped big style but now i have the decisions as to who if any i should change.

Made 3 of my transfers, not sure what to do with the last one. Will decide tonight I think.

In other news, yesterday's events were graced with a full 3 column inches in the Daily Wail today, under the generic "world of sport". Pathetic.

What do you expect ? It's not primma donna footballers you know. Cyclists and every other sport come to think of it are insignificant to most reporters.

I've made 2 changes, just cant decide on my GC, should i go safer with Wiggo, but i think he's going to struggle tomorrow, its the perfect stage to sat with J-Rod to get some time back or do i risk it with Nibali or Van Den Broeck?

Play safe with Wiggo i think he will have the legs tomorro and he will have the perfect foil in Froome plus i think Xandio might show his worth as a DS.

I've got a funny feeling the rest of the GC boys might be a little bit nervous around Sky tomorro.

I think that a break will win tomorrow because no-one is going to help Sky shut down a break, they are going to make them sit on the front as suffer as much as possible

I can see Katusha doing a sneaky one tomorrow aswell, Send Moreno off in the break and then sit back and let Sky do all the pacing, if that comes true, i'm taking ALL the credit and will be charging Katusha for advice Devil

You might be right about the break but if you look at the GC Leopard and Radioshack have 2 each in the top 10 as well so they need to chase down any breakaway to keep their positions safe, Just a thought ?

Oh yeah, i forgot about the lion trekkers, they might do the same, but i dont think Radioshack have the team to keep on the front as everything was focused on Kloden and he's not doing well

Aye, your spot on there !

It's on Eurosport2 for about 80mins each day cos the bloody tennis and Athletics is on every other f'in channel including Sky.

Brailsford was on Sky Sports news earlier and he was questioned about Cavendish - gave nothing away but mentioned they were after other big names as well Thinking

Well what a let down. Wiggins comes in third.
So I've called it a day and discarded Wiggins.

And I've got rid of the other let down - Cancellara and wondering if its too late to pick Tony Martin . . . Rolling On The Floor

And I've also got shut of my Highroad DS despite him getting the fully expected 5 pts yesterday.

But which strong mountain AR did I pick? Thinking
And which GC rider is going to be a bit tasty tomorrow imho? Thinking
And which DS is going to do well foor me tomorrow? Thinking
