Here were my last min changes

Mar 24, 20:10 Peter Sagan Edvald Boasson Hagen
Mar 24, 20:10 Philippe Gilbert Mark Cavendish

So i swapped 6th for 2nd and 0 points for 0 points, should have just kept Eddy and swapped Cav for Sagan Crying

Thought Cancellera might be sore so substituted him for Sagan

Original plan was Pozatto but he looked tired in E3 so subbed in Degenkolb and Pozatto did look tired in today's sprint, but he was in the 1st group and top 10.

Stuck with my original 2, Boonen & Freire

Picked wrong FDJ DS Chainel has been good past few years but I chose Ladagnous on E3 form

Hopefully Paolini just finished outside top 10.

Hopefully 1st, 2nd, 4th & 11th+ should see me hold my place in the overall, if not move up a couple of spots.

I don't know where Road.cc get the break away stats from, but Infostrada had 63 G. Izagirre (ESP, EUS) where as other places had Jon Izagirre, who was number 64 Thinking

I had Rojas and I'm gutted that he fell in the last few metres. That's cycling I guess.

So it was Jon Izagirre that was in the break and will score 10 so that was another transfer i missed points on

Mar 23, 10:39 Pablo Urtasun Jon Izagirre

I had 1st, 2nd, 10th, 11th plus bonus 5 for team win so 116 points

Cav not even in top 50

I could bet that Boasson Hagen crossed the line before Freire. Confused

Really? I'll believe that when i see it Wink

REMEMBER folks, don't go mucking about with your teams as you only get 4 transfers this time as the classic's are all grouped together into one "race" this year Surprise

1st 4th & 6th today. I'm starting to think I should have done a bit more forward planning for Flanders and Roubaix. Plain Face

1st and 11th. Dropped Sagen doh! Kept Cav no idea why. Maybe if I drop him he'll do well. Not a good day at all Sad

ok, WILL PROBABLY. . . .
Replace Greg van Avermaet with Sebastian Langeveld

Replace John Degenkolb with Fabian Cancellara

Replace Bernhard Eisel with Stijn Devolder

Replace Kristof Goddaert with Stijn Vandenbergh

Number of transfers: 4

Transfers completed so far: 0

But nearer the time when riders are confirmed a bit more.

1st ever stage win in the game. Took Friere out last night for Degenkolb but with 30 odd minutes to go this morning I changed it back again. What a stroke of luck. Monday morning blues will have edge taken off now... Big Grin Big Grin Big Grin

1st, 2nd, 4th and 13th.

Now, about RVV. How do I morph this team for cobbles?

Another note: anyone else here riding the RVV sportive?

Must remember to check for last minute changes - had Oss in as Sagan wasn't listed when I did my team Sad

fairly often in the classics the teams are making changes as late as the day before the race, so always best to check back. i did email everyone to let them know the last minute changes
