For stage 4 i've taken a gamble, swapped Gerrans for Hutawhatshisface. It's flat for the final 3k so whatever bumps there are in between he should be ok. Will swap him back for stage 5 as Gerrans, I believe, will attack.

I hope i'm right or i could be kissing goodbye to a lot of points....  20

My question to you is... can Hutarovich climb, and therefore will he make the sprint?

I toyed with putting him in but I agree with LabMonkey so he'll probably win going on my start to the season. I'm keeping the same team as today then seeing what happens tomorrow. Unless I get a surprise breakaway win then my TDU is over anyway.

I say hutarovich can't climb, but that's more out of hope than any actual knowledge as i've consistently failed to transfer him in and stage 4 is no exception

The climb is approx 200 mtrs over 2 kms so its not exactly a ball breaker, a professional cyclist should be able to manage it  39

The worst climber in the peloton is going to be stronger going uphill than all but a few of us lot playing the game, but the issue is, how does he compare to the others in the race?

I reckon 2km at 1 in 10 that close to the finish is enough for some of the stronger climbers, especially those with an explosive kick, to get away - and for some of the weaker ones to be too knackered to figure in a chase once they get to the top.

First sprint
1: Andre Greipel
2: Michael Matthews
3. Jose Joaquin Rojas

In other news, police and fire brigade were called to a section of road near Tanunda where the race will pass through later on in the stage to clear nails, drawing pins, rocks and other debris that were scattered over the road, many people were taking part in an Am race over the same route and encountered the things over the road  14 14 14 14

It would seem it was, but more down to others making 'bad' transfers from what i remember or the teams around me after yesterday

Bugger it, i swapped out Gerrans for Hutarovich thinking he would make the climb and be there at the end. Lost out on 13 points. Wouldn't make much difference to the overall scores but in the long run you never know.  39
