TdS Stage 7

by TERatcliffe26   June 15, 2012  

Well I could lie and say my team is the same as yesterday, only decided to make 3 transfers as dont wanna mess up my DS's too much with the climbing stages on sat/sun, and also the fact i couldnt identify a larrson type that should top 10.

So my team ive gone for

Rui Costa
Cancellara
Fuglsang
Danielson

Pinot
Caruso
Albasini
Izagirre
Moser

Im hoping that if 3 of my stars can top 10, the other top 20 and maybe albasini and moser top 20 then i can stick in there, but today is all about trying not to loose ground. then hopfully take some risks that pay off tomorrow with my 3 transfers i will have

Cancellara 1-2 with the bookies. One horse race?!

Quite fancy Danielson to come top 3 overall ... only 29" behind and can TT.

I've got a feeling Roche will go well today and fully expect Kreuziger to be race leader by the end of this TT.

My Team

Roche
Cancellara
Rui Costa
Kreuziger
Moser
Lofqvist
Cooke
Anderson
Pinot

3 transfers for tomorrow

Had to decide between...
Leipheimer and Cataldo OR
Fuglsang and Lofkvist.
Went with the latter but don't know much about Lofkvist so might be wrong.

Anyway, I have...
Cancellara, Fuglsang, Costa, Frank
Albasini, Moser, Elmiger, Lofkvist, Pinot

I'm hoping I'm right when I say I think Costa is a better TTer than some people think. And that the Swiss are peaking for their home tour, as I have 4 of them!

Actually, it doesn't really matter if I'm right about Costa or not, as pretty much everyone has him anyway...

10 or 12 left to finish - Kessiakoff leads with Cancellara second, then Monfort, Roy and Gesink...

That top 5 stays the same, Rui Costa finishes 8th - best of all the top 20 on GC I think.

Fuglsang was a disappointing 33rd, must not be fully recovered from his injury yet...
