I was hoping for the same, but no joy, A Euski rider and Lloyd behind him, only 131 finished so far though

I wish I'd played purist. I had Westra, De Gendt and Wiggins in my original team. Would have got some points from Porte, Viviani, Pauriol. Only Martin would have been a disaster.

Wasn't expecting anything today, just played safe, but what to do about Leipheimer? Would have brought De Gendt or Taaramae in to cover, but that's out of the question now. Monfort maybe??

mmm if I was levi and wasn't badly injured i'd be having a go for that TT, to salvage something, so maybe I leave him in.

Levi went down 3 times today, i wouldn't bank on him for anything, he'll be getting the chop from my team and i have the ideal replacement Big Grin

Levi's gone from my team for tomoro.

Put tj in as a straight replacement.

How about Taaramae, finishing 6 mins down on De Gendt surely he was taking it easy in preparation for tomorrow?

He came in battered and bruised, skint knee, blood all over his right hand, so i suspect he went down somewhere on the stage and thats why he was lagging De Gendt, so i wouldn't be chucking him in there either

To be honest De Gendt didn't have to kill himself at the end. He'd already won from a long way out, so he might be ok. Can't afford Monfort and Chavanal, and the latter also went down, didn't he?

I agree, if he came 1st in the sprint then it should be 6 as thats how ive been scoring Tirreno and i got that from your scoring

As a purist, I was lamenting the fact that two of my star riders, De Gendt and Degenkolb, haven't done much scoring lately. And I don't think any of my DSes have scored at all for this entire race--in fact 3 of them have abandoned.

It had been a real rough last few stages, but today was a nice change of luck for me. I only wish that Valverde would have done a little better.
