Giro d'Italia stage 2

by stumps   May 6, 2012  

Ok the stage should be off and running by now with BMC having the lead so will have to work to cut back any breaks.

Will that effect any sprint by Thor or Phinney - only time will tell.

Going to work now so any updates would be appreciated.

Hmmm, not the end of the world having Hushovd but Cav will be coming in tonight I think, although I might wait and see how much Bos suffers from his crash.

on another note that means my planned transfer of bringing in Kristoff tomorrow will now not happen

Demare was 3rd i believe, nope he wasnt Sad

I'm slightly happier that Hushovd finished in 7th, but thats the end of my Giro after making my transfers and them not registering Angry

So i'm not making any more transfers and going purist Angry

Nah, you've got 4 transfers now, if anything you're in a better position than me who chose to transfer in Chicchi and Guardini who've done naff all. I'd love to have 4 transfers tonight to bring in Cav, possibly Ferrari, Bonnet and someone else.

Really Thought it was after tomorrows stage....as they fly to Italy after tomorrorows stage, so an unusual but enforced early rest day. Its sort of given me some options todays result

Tuesday's a rest day isn't it? I figured it'd be four transfers, not that I have any idea what I'm going to do with them yet.

EDIT: Gkam's four are because his first two didn't register last night, so they carry over, it'll be four on Tuesday for everyone.

Yeah i only have four just now because of the system being an arse and taking my transfers and then spitting them back out......I'll sell them to you for 10 points rather then the 20 you would incur Wink

So 40 transfers 10 points each, then i make back my loss of Cav not going into my team. Pissed off, but laughing about it. Still not playing the rest of the Giro, concentrating on the ToC now

Good result, 1,5,8,10. Although a couple of my riders got caught up by the crash i think.

Reasonable day today, decision is, do I ditch Hushovd for Cavendish and what do I do about Bos? Likewise, keep guaranteed (ish) GC points with Rasmussen or pick up Bonnet as another sprinter?

Still not certain Bonnet is the no 1 sprinter in his outfit. I'm going for Demare. Then again, I transferred Bennati out last night, which clearly wasn't the best move...

Narrowed my choices down, bringing in a cheap-ish DS and I can afford to swap out GT for Cav, or I can ditch Hushovd... Guaranteed GC points would be nice but if it's a straight finish this time I can't see Thomas scoring another 10th.

Delayed bringing in Cav by a day which is a shame, but I have him now so hopefully he gets another win later. Had Bos and Kristoff so shame about the end yesterday. My team of 9 now consists of 6 sprinters, and the top 3 overall, so hoping for good points today...
