Albasini???? this stage goes up hill to the end :I know he has some up hill palmares, but I would never have picked him.

This is streaming well with French commentary, just ignore the plug in request, click the x in the corner of the ad.

I have Albasini.

Think I might go and buy a lottery ticket after the race. Interesting because if I had had unlimited transfers, he would have been transferred out.

Same Wig, without that transfer of albasini for kiserlovksi i reckon i would have had the stage win!!!
as i called nieve correctly and had frank schleck so would have had 5 of the top 7 had i not made that 1 transfer.

we will see when the full results go up, he will have cost me about 30 points

although the TdS website is very comprehensive with pdf files showing full details of results, has anyone else noticed how desperataly slow they are at updating results?

in the grand tours, the top 10 or 20 is usually put up very quickly but in the TdS, a couple of hours is usually the norm. How did they ever make a living selling clocks and watches? Thinking

You'll get nervous when you're leading the TdF with a day to go.

For me, with little live coverage and lots of decent footy on, it's been a bit of a bore. Can't wait for a decent comp! Oh yeah TdF in a couple of weeks and the footy's finished by then so nothing to distract my attention.

you taking him out is a slight consolation Alan for keeping you in sight in the overall, nice one chris, you should win it. cant see anything drastic happening tomorrow.

If it cost me the stage win i will be more disappointed.

Not going to get anywhere near challenging chrisdstripes or Wig_Billy but glad to get what should be some solid points today - seven in the top 20 including 1, 2 & 5 Smile

Looking forward to the TdF, but based on my Giro, I'm not expecting to get nervous at any point Wink

So dropping albasini cost me 60 points and would have come second on the stage had I not done it. On a positive note inside the top 20 overall in he premium league

yh you have, when i saw he was in a breakaway i was thinking you would have the stage win wrapped up for today.

I also bought in leipheimer but only cost me 4 points as it was for rui costa
