Oohh new socks would be great
I think I got a magic washing machine, cos it either makes my socks change colour or it makes them disappear.
I now have 6 odd socks [but they're all the same funnily enough]

I'm always in two minds
Then I go and pick the wrong one Sad

Heh, had an email from Puerto Rico about a name change almost straight after replying to your post fluffchucker. V. satisfying explaining that it was something you can do yourself - hoping the word gets out over there.

Socks well earned.

Hopefully not as much as a bike's worth cos if you are playing outside the UK you have to pay the postage. Them's the rules I'm afraid, I don't make 'em, I just… oh, hang on

So if they win a bike they get a pair of socks then, seems fair to me

My post just went up 1.
Seems all post are changed to show present count

Nice to see we're all on first name terms now, with the riders that is

By the way, what's the postage for a bike to Puerto Rico if they win?

Just checking my leagues & notice the `North West & Isle of Man' have disappeared.

At present there are only the `Evans Cycles' & `The big play the road cc team league' shown as being available.

Do I assume therefore, all the `local' leagues been terminated as it's been added as a bonus stage?

As far as i understand it, because its a one off stage, its only going to be scored on its own and not added to any leagues

the lombardia stage scores won't be added to the overall game at all, there'll just be a stage league

Looking forward to this race - already feeling withdrawal symptoms. When does the TDU start ?

Anyway, my team:

J Rod
Mollema
Duran Duran
Awesome Phil
Jello
Tommy V
Eros
Niemic
Wout Poels

I have a nagging feeling I should have had Sammy Sanchez but it was two out of three for him, Rodriguez and Gilbert.

Right, so are the people who have picked based on the world champs "pick anyone you want" going to score points?

Did the Fantasy competition not happen today because of the problems with the website? no scores from what I can see and possible to change your team during the race ie no cut off time for selection.

scores are up, chaps. Wig_Billy takes the final win of the season... they won't be added to your overall score though, you'll just have to look at the stage table

I looked at the results of the Giro dell'Emilia, GP Beghelli, & Giro del Piemonte, and Zaugg finished high up in all three so I figured he was in good form. Also, he was cheap. Wink
