Dauphine stage 6

by rcorbin   June 9, 2012  

Big break of 20 or so clear at current.
Rolland and Chavenel are there. Sarmiento as well.
Eurosport coverage begins at 12, anyone know why it's an early one today?

Schleck is off the back already!

Cool Could be a nice break group for me with Sarmiento AND Kadri picking up mountain points Wink

Might be early because of the Roland Garros tennis and also there's the Tour de Suisse later. Think it was the same last year.

Dropped Chav for Moncoutie both in the break, but Moncoutie got points already Big Grin
Shame Edet and Bernaudeau seem to have given up on the KOM!? Sick

Is it me or are Colombians having a good time of it at the moment?

I assume it's early cos it's the queen stage and it's gonna take all frickin day.

Quite annoyed at my choices for today. Had a triple change so went for Sarmiento (good), Edet, and Gallopin (can't blame me really). A bit more risk I would have swapped out Tony Martin for Moncoutie, then I'd of had the cash for Sarmiento and Kadri.

But hell this game is always promising in foresight and frustrating in hindsight! Hoping the Postman delivers me 5 bonus points. Smile

If I was doing well I'd have brought in Evans, Nibali & Amador - but I'm not so I brought in Moncoutie, Rolland & Kern. Not bad so far Smile .

you think you have problems.
I'm running Sprick, Bouhanni and Durbridge in my team, and they've gone home. Big Grin

He said on the official site that his DOS wants him to win the jersey so I picked him. Already had Moncoutie who has gone out and might get a good placing at the end if the break stays away, which it might well do. Put in Jeansboz rather than Feillu from Saur though so didn't quite get it all right. Still got Wiggins and Evans as well as LLSanchez so I think I've got the bases covered.

Lot of sport today as football was always my main sport. So two stages of racing and the Netherlands game. Plus I should do a decent ride today for a long ride next month. God knows how I'm going to fit it all in.

Looks like Feillu might get caught. Quintana gone away. looking very good for Wiggins. Most of the break out the back but Moncoutie picked up a few points, not as many as I'd hoped though.

Ive messed this up so it seems from trying to win it, i took risks just the wrong risks it seems, now to try and stick with you in the overall

Wiggins must be odds on for the tdf, collar bones permitting . . .

Ok day for me. Not so good as it promised at first. Should have kept Rogers it seems and only switched for LLSanchez for tomorrow. Hope he does well tomorrow as the stage suits him more.

Switched out Moncoutie now as he's too far behind Sarmiento so I doubt if he'll bother much. Sarmiento will prob pick up a few more points early on to make it mathematically impossible for him to be caught and then sit up. Wiggins uncatchable now and Evans has some work to do for the Tour. Green and white still up for grabs.

Don't we get any Mountains points for the Joux Plane? It wasn't the finish.

Nice work on overtaking me, i dropped from 16th to 46th, nevermind, needed a good day to try and win and my transfer risks back fired, So for tomorrow rather than go safe and put in Cadel for Martin, ive gone for JVDB as i reckon he may win the stage. Still very close in the overall

Although ive had a terrible start to the TdS (42 points, although could do well tomorrow, fingers crossed)
