Tour of Oman. Stage 4

by rhysb   February 16, 2012  

Heres the profile for tomorrow http://www.steephill.tv/players/aso-profile/?race=tour-of-oman&stage=4&y...

Looks like an interesting stage lots of hills but only a small climb up hill for the last 5km. so who to drop who to keep is the question, Will the break succeed or will be another bunch finish? Lots of question and 4 transfers saed up. I think this stage and the next will be the ones to make a big difference in points

TBH we may well go with the volta next year. we picked the Tour of Oman because it's on the ASO website which means results are easy to come by. the volta website seems to have decent results although i'm not sure how timely they are with them as i haven't been following the race.

anyway it was a last minute addition, and the only person moaning seems to be gkam, so i'll call that a win Smile

I'm just moaning cause i'm an arse Devil and didn't listen to myself and decided i would chance it today for more points tomorrow Sick In the end it wasn't that bad, i still scored 63, better than when i had the sprinters in for the sprinting stage 2 Surprise

One thing i did notice today, i cant find a place to find ALL the riders who scored and not just the dream team? I was trying to work out what i would have scored against what i did score

I don't blame anyone for taking the tour in, I liked Qatar, BUT i'd like the foresight based not only on what race you can get results for quickly, i don't mind waiting for scores if i can watch the race live Big Grin

Cool 194 today, best score ever Cool
Can't understand all the whining, except for P**s poor TV coverage. I posted before, If you want to whinge, let's all get on to Sky/Eurosport/ITV4. I recorded 3.5 hours of b**dy tennis yesterday & paying Eurosport & Sky for the privilege Angry
Devil FYI - I didn't listen to Gkam84 either Devil

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

What does B**dy mean?

Can't think of anything that would fit the constraints of the two *'s. Perhaps Biddy?
Buddy? Boody?

Presumably, you meant B***dy.

or not? Devil

I think the lack of TV coverage is OK. It makes it easier to resist the temptation to make transfers, and therefore I can stay purist almost without trying.

This way I can say, "whatever, I never could have known THAT was going to happen" rather than kicking myself repeatedly for not seeing things coming and making the right transfers the day before the stage. I'll save all that self-doubt and other neurotic behavior for the later classics and grand tours. Wink

If you plan ahead, why would you ever need to use the -20 option.

I dont think the person had changed team since TDU

I also think the data base needs a chop over 3 pages of players who haven't played this year, maybe send out an email, log in or lose your fantasy account?
