With tomorrow being the last day of 3 in the mountains do we change anyone cos lets be honest they are all going to be knackered.

Taaramae was fab today but will he have the legs to carry it off again tomorrow.

I'm not going to win La Vuelta, i'm not going to win the World league, basically i'm not going to win anything, so feck it, i'm taking risks

Also, WHERE are the spot prizes that were supposed to be coming??

I think they may have disappeared under the weight of Eurobike. Or they may start when Dave gets back. Or something.

As I mentioned in the other thread, I've put Mollema in for Moncoutie, because I think he'll be on the attack tomorrow.

And Dan Martin in for LL Sanchez.I was going to put Barredo for Sorensen but that would leave me with 3 Rabos.

I had LL Sanchez in today, but once the break was caught he left everything he had on the hill to try and pull everyone in for Mollema, so cant see him doing much tomorrow, just trying to drag Mollema up towards the end

Where as Dan Martin doesn't have anyone to work for, You've only just got Mollema in, i've had him in from the start apart from on stage for Macaroni and he's now gone

BUT the guys who have dropped out are still in the list of riders, i guess they have forgotten to take them out, i wonder if my tactics will work overnight  19 19

You guess wrong  3

Anyone who has Kroon or Scarponi in their team would be well advised to transfer them out (Vuelta over for both), they WILL be removed from the rider list as soon as we are able to do that.

I always guess wrong, lol, not so happy you told people, if they were playing this game as an addition to their love of cycling and cycle racing, like myself and many others, they would have known

The ones who are just after freebies shouldn't be told  19

Its like your schwag posts, i have to laugh, some news items attract a little attention here and there, like the CTC one just now, but then you post "look something free" 2386 people on the Giant bike one  37

After much thought I'm not going to change my team. They got me 149 points today so a repeat of that will do nicely.

In all honesty though as long as Wiggo keeps the jersey i will be happy.

You think JJ could do it??

Also, i've come upon a new tactic, using my 1200+ post power to try and sabotage others cause i aint gonna win, lol, Just remember that for next year cause its a bit late now  3

But if it backfires and the two guys i've tried to lead people to picking go on and win, GUTTED  31
