by obutterwick   June 6, 2012  

Surely some points for Degenkolb today? Ciolek for the win, for me.

Yeah, got him too. Had a disappointing stage 1 but I was hopeful after his Tour of California.

Got EBH, Howard, Kluge and LLSanchez. Not that hopeful to be honest. Kept back transfers for the TT which is more predictable than these sprint (?) stages.

Not really been following the race, just caught the last few updates on the ticker.

No points for Degenkolb today

Degenkolb has a flat tyre with 2km to go, it’s game over for the hot favourite!

16:41 - Gilbert attacks
Philippe Gilbert goes clear!

16:42 - Gilbert insists
Gilbert stays away in the last km...

16:42 - The winner is... Boasson Hagen
Edvald Boasson Hagen wins the bunch sprint. It’s his second stage win at the Dauphiné after 2010. Bozic is second.

Pleased with the result today given that my team was not oriented to this stage. 1 and 4 is ok as I have plenty of table points.

Pauriol and Howard are the only two riders I've picked so far who have done nothing for me.

Now got to think about my transfers. Make some good ones today to set me up for the next 2 stages and then see how it goes.

Liking this idea of building up transfers for every two days rather than blowing them every day as I normally do.

Not bad for today got 1, 4 and 19th. Had Degenkolb in as well but never mind.

There are no stupid questions, just stupid people.

Sky are pretty much showing Liquigas how to control a race after the Italians completely got it wrong with Basso in the Giro.

If Liquigas hadn't done that, Basso would not have finished in the top 100.

That's how you do well in races.

24 for me, I didn't have anyone in the top 20, so that was a bonus, I thought it would have been less. I was at 12th in Purist and 63rd Overall, guess i'll have dropped a bit. But my team is still looking good for the stages to come Wink

I haven't really been focusing on the Dauphine (and I think my scoring has reflected this) - but it's all part of my plan...

I'm treating this race as a rest period after the Giro. I'll then try and build up some form during the TdS, with the aim of peaking for the TdF Cool. (Please ignore the fact that this stupid analogy doesn't really work for fantasy cycling). #CrapExcuse

Might pick it up again during the TdS but enjoying the break, will be going after the TdF though and hoping by being terrible this week and.next I'll use up.all my bad luck for the season.

I agree Wig billy and dr heaton. I have also been doing terribly in this comp. I don't expect to win it but then I didn't expect to be coming 851st either.

Dare I say it..... a game which I was completely addicted to is now becoming a bit too involved. Noone's pointing a gun at my head telling me I have to play but I don't want to lose my position in the top 50 overall so feel obliged to try to work out a team every night.

On the other hand, I guess I wouldn't be complaining if I was higher up the leader board.
