Paris Nice Stage 3

by Gkam84   March 5, 2012  

So who we all thinking will be first home today?

I'm hoping for something better than my last two days, but as with anything in this race, its so hard to pick on because everything changes with the wind direction and the weather, they are even talking about snow redirecting the route this week

A bit happier today, i knew LL had something in him, so kept him in, Also had Hivert in 8th, might have made some back on those who have Boonen, Levi and Teej Big Grin

4th 8th 12th 20th +5 for win bonus, then 2nd in points and 1st 8th in GC

Better day, still not good enough Crying

I wont be catching anything on Teej and Boonen, Because Boonen is still up there in the points and Teej did not get dropped, so he'll be a high scorer being in the top places of everything Angry

1st and 3rd but nothing else, hmmm is that good or bad? at least meersman came good for me and at least my transfer of valverde for kittel last night was justified.

so what that gives me is i dont know 80ish points?

Jaroslaw Marycz was your last man home today

Vladimir Isaichev jumped off and i think there are a couple more who will pull out tonight, so hold off on transfers, a couple of nasty crashes today which could claim a couple of riders that limped home

Just checked the last home for the previous stages, i'd had 2nd last home in the ITT and 2nd last home yesterday, my riders are extracting the urine, at least GET last for me Wink

Im baffled by tactics in this race....Boonen is talking up his Milan-San Remo ambitions...well surely today was a tester for that....Oh well at least Wiggo is looking good for the overall..... And Taaramae is doing my head in.... Sad

OMFG!!!! 35 points... I think that's my lowest score EVER. Mind you if I hadn't put Teejay in (my risk free boring switch) I'd have scored 14 points! I've made 2 more safe type changes for tomorrow. Finally got rid of Phinney - what a total disappointment and changed him for a much cheaper DS who ought to start scoring from here on in. Next few stages should be a bit more predictable although might get a break staying away soon!

Decent score. I only got 37. Thinking of Valverde for 4 and 5 but he does have a lot of time to catch up. Hoping for better from my DSs tomorrow. Still 2 above you in overall but that might change tomorrow.

You beat me by 1 point so its better than i did. That is my lowest score ever, not to bothered as my transfers were for later in the week.

There are no stupid questions, just stupid people.

Taaramae either isn't bothered, doesn't have the legs or is planning a big day soon.
