Dauphine prologue transfer deadline snafu

by widgetkicker   June 3, 2012  

The deadline for transfers is 14:35 CET, but by that time all but a handful of riders will have actually finished. According to the official site at letour.fr and every other source I can find, the first rider is scheduled to go off at 11:40 with the last rider finishing around 14:40.

Also the transfer deadlines for stages 4 and 5 are an hour after the race start times.

I noticed that too . . . .I might get top points today if the window does not vlose at around 10.30 am, but then I am out until 1pm . . .

hm, that's an error - looks like i picked the 'last rider off' time out of the grid instead of the first.

i've had to change that. hopefully everyone's already picked their squad

Crap!

Checked the closing time for the window yesterday, figured I had plenty of time today to swap out Talansky and Zabriskie for Roulston and Kluge only to find the windows closed Crying

This is always what happens when I leave it to the last minute Sad I should just go back to making my transfers asap rather waiting to see who pulls out.

Bah! The riders I was thinking of bringing in didn't do anything but I'm still pretty hacked off, I've now got to use tonight's transfers on swapping out Talansky and Zabriskie rather than being able to bring in sprinters like EBH and Degenkolb, might just write this one off now and have a week off before the TdS starts Angry

drheaton, i wouldnt worry about getting a good start. If you look at the results i dont think there will be any mega high scores due to the rain spoiling things a bit.

If you must break the law, do it to seize power: in all other cases observe it. Gaius Julius Caesar.

I'm not so bothered about today, its more the fact that I need to swap out my non-riders rather than being able to bring in sprinters Sad I'm tempted to just sack it off but that mean losing points in the overall leagues (not that I'm doing too well).
