GC or take a chance for the next couple of stages?

by bridlematt   July 10, 2012  

Who will score the most points over the next few days, as there are likely to be plenty of breaks off the front?

Do you go GC or take a chance with those star riders who are 15min + down?

I'm disappointed in De Gregorio, as I had in in earlier in the tour and he did nothing. You'd have thought with all those drugs rattling around in him he could have at least made it worth while and scored me a few points!

Drugs rattling or not....If he'd scored and has now been removed for the tour, he would have had his points taken from him Wink Wink

I also have a froggie who seems to enjoy sitting at the back, If only he would come in last if he's not going to hit the break Wink

lol - nice one Gkam.

I won't put him in my team and hopefully that will give you more of a chance that he scores some points Wink

I made the unwise decision of bringing in Di Gregorio after the TT, and promptly transferred him straight out again this morning without him even riding a stage. Crying

My wild card for a break today/tomorrow is Kevin De Weert. With stars, I couldn't decide whether to drop Brajkovic or Velits after the TT so copped out and kept them both! Now there's tactics for ya...

TER,

I put Sandy Casar in my team and that was the rider I meant. I presume you're talking about Vichot?

I had Casar and took him out and replaced him with Roux as he has got to go in a break soon!!

Casar went so that i could bring in evans so effectively lost out on 14 points by doing so. My TdF has been shocking

I dont know why but i decided to bring in Sagan for today and it seems to have paid off, however the rest of my team were shite !!!
