Thank christopher for Demare, at least i scored something. I had van hummell and Hutarovich in my team originally, but never intended Cav, fancied Griphook, and thought boonen would make up for yesterday, but hey, good game good game.

Yesterdays team would have given me 10 for GVA and thats it.

Can't find most combative as the website is not as good as the one that does paris-nice, Le tour etc and my dutch isnt good so cant navigate the site very well

Thanks for working out the scores.
First time i've won something, apart from 1 stage two years ago.

So is the prize an all expenses paid trip to watch the TDF in 2012 , staying the the team hotels?

...maybe not ! Big Grin

Great fun, a bit awkeward flicking between websites, to see who was actually racing, and remembering not to replace my paris nice team once i'd worked out the points.

thanks for the points working outs.

The other race i didn't even look at anything to do with it, i just took a few guys from everyone's teams Devil
