Right, thoughts on the 'big one'? Predictions? Please, just no more moaning about having more transfers.

Ooh, that's interesting. ASO currently listing Sep Vanmarcke as last finisher. A few people will get a bonus there.

Another 10 points if vanmarcke is last, hope he is, then that would be 7 scorers for me

It's Eisel now. But I'm pretty sure I saw Guesdon crossing the line and he hasn't been listed yet, so I think it will change again. Unless there is a time limit?

135 points for me, will go above you now Alan

poor showing by sky? only team that did any work to try and bring back boonen. You cant work yourself into the ground and expect them all to finish in top 20

Probably, if you had Flecha. 3 of my 4 transfers were ok. Ballan, Rast and Vansummeren, just made a mistake with EBH. Was thinking of Terpstra and Paolini as well but that meant getting rid of Vandenbergh, who did ok himself at 24th and picked up 5 points. Thought long and hard about Flecha and EBH but in the end experience won out and his injury wasn't so significant. Pity about Pozzato's slip as he was probably the only one who could have challenged Boonen,(apart from Cancellara), but he is in a different league this year. Agree about Sky, at least they tried, just think they need to change bike as I mentioned below your original comment.

Eisel still listed as last so no points for Vanmarcke. Poor campaign for Garmin, but Phinney did well at 15th for his first time out. Defo one for the future.

A respectable 127, and even managed 92 for my purist team with only 5 runners. Quite happy with how that turned out and I hadn't really considered anyone who did better so can't really complain.

Dropped only one place in overall so not so bad and increased my lead in East Anglia a fraction.

60 points behind in Classics so need a good next race to catch up. Completely different set of riders so I expect a lot of movement at the top after the next race.

I had turgot in the non-game races we did, but had pichot in the game as i didnt have enough transfers to get turgot in (all 4 of my transfers were correct as all finished in top 13)

Hey, Dave, how about some stats? Out of curiousity, can you tell us how many teams had Eisel, how many featured Turgot and how many had Tossatto? Eisel was probably very popular, although he got points for the wrong reason! Smile But just wondering if there were any souls out there that picked Turgot or Tossatto! Thanks! Smile

If you click on the riders name when in the pick team mode, it tells you the % of teams that picked the rider for the previous race/stage depending on the comp

Ok, thanks! Smile But, just to clarify, when it refers to % of teams that picked that rider, is that registered teams, or teams actively playing in the latest stage? or in the current competition? And what would that figure be? I still am curious because on some of these riders, like Tossatto, it says 0%. Does that mean 0 teams picked him or that less than 1% picked him, and it's rounded out to 0?... Just wondering Smile
