Criterium Du Dauphine prologue

by thefatcyclist   June 3, 2012  

Thought i'd start one for a change. This should be an interesting one. Will Wiggins breathing let him down, Will Gilbert wake up. Will Cobo show the Vuelta wasn't a fluke.
Will Sylvian Chavanel win a stage?
Time will tell.

Real teams only here please guys. Big Grin

Here is mine.

Bradley Wiggins (SKY)
Rein Taaramae (COF)
John Degenkolb (ARG)
Arnold Jeannesson (FDJ)
Blel Kadri (ALM)
Joost Posthuma (RSN)
Lieuwe Westra (VCD)
Bram Tankink (RAB)
Luke Durbridge (GRE)

Now you know why it's called "another bunch of losers". eh. No Tony martin, every time I pick him he does rubbish, so good for all you guys.

@samjackson54 - know the feeling, only I managed to remove Durbridge in favour of Pauriol last night having looked at the previous form this year Crying

I really need to go with my instinct on these - that's not the first time I've done that (most recent was only two stages ago, not putting de Gendt in on the stage to the Stelvio)... Sad ... one day I'll learn!!!

You have made your transfers after the start of the prologue (Barredo, Gerrans, Plaza...) a very good strategy... but I don't know if it's ethical Wink

Not that it matters to me cos i'm miles behind the leaders but i think some people might be a bit peeved with transfers after the stage has started considering the end result in your score. I know its not your fault and i cant blame you for doing it, and as you say rules are rules but i can see a bit of a stink heading towards the powers that be. Thinking

Only put Durbrudge in after Zabriskie pulled out Big Grin though my other research fell flat - Rogers beat Porte last week and van Garderen wasn't far behind Zabriskie at the USA nat champs so fnished between 20 and 30 today!

In all seriousness now, you are both correct, I was a bit naughty today. I send my apologies to one and all. It is only a game after all.
