During the Spring Classics, no GC points were awarded in the FC comp. (probably because it would be impossible to calculate them!). As the Giro has just finished, I just wondered what other players views are on whether they should be awarded during Grand Tours.
The alternative name of this game is "Guess who's going to be in the Top 20 in this Stage". Why should you get points for GC places?
As has been mentioned on a previous thread, once someone obtains a high position in a particular Grand Tour, it can be difficult or almost impossible to catch them. I plead guilty to doing this myself, as I stock up with GC riders who may also place high in the individual Stage. eg Joaquin Rodriguez, Ivan Basso, Pozzovivo etc. etc.
Wouldn't it liven things up a bit to abolish the points for GC classification? Players would have to guess their nine riders for each stage and it would make the game more fluid.
BTW, before anyone lays into me, I'm just throwing this out there as an idea, not necessarily saying it should be implemented.
