Paris Nice Stage 5

by obutterwick   March 7, 2012  

Going to stick my neck out and disagree with Geraint. Not convinced Lloyd will be up to it. However, with the way this race is going, it'll probably come back to haunt me. I wish Chavanel would step up and show his class.

16:12 - Chavanel dropped
French champion Sylvain Chavanel (OPQ), 4th overall, has just been dropped.

I suspect that not picking Chavanel will be my best decision of the day.

1,2,3 as well however I suspect today may be a very high scoring stage and 120 points for 1,2,3 and GC will be about average.

185 today. Agonising whether to put a sprinter in for tomorrow, or just stick with what I've got. And then who to take out. I love this game....... Thinking

Swapping Chavanel for Haussler and Astarloza for Veuchelens today thinking that this stage(six) may well be Garmin's day and that Veuchelens should hold Polka Dots at the end no matter what happens......what's the betting Chavanel goes on an early charge,cleans up all the bonuses and takes yellow?

170 pts yesterday represents my best for a long time.
