Olympic TT

by frankiejay   July 29, 2012  

So who you got?

Seems like an easy-to-tier event, which means I'll be completely wrong, but if I'm making tiers for the race it looks something like this:

Tier 1: Wiggins
Tier 2: Martin, Cancellara (depends on how close he is to 100%), Froome
Tier 3: Chavanel, Pinotti, Sanchez
Tier 4: Fuglsang, van Garderen (is he in the race?), Phinney, Larsson, Westra, Grabsch, Kwiatkowski (is he in the race?)

Everybody else. OK, I probably missed a couple guys... looked at this in a hurry. So who'd I miss? Or who do I have completely wrong.

Is there a cut-off time in the TT?

ARGH, Rogers and Castroviejo were guys I was going to have, but though, nah Sanchez and Brajkovic are better bet than Rogers and Westra or Phinney would have Castroviejo

ROAD CYCLING
Strange scenes at the finish line. Michael Rogers is sitting in one of those ridiculous golden thrones, while Chris Froome rides off with a bag on his back, looking like he is about to start his commute home.

Still out on the road, Tony Martin is about to catch Taylor Phinney as they approach the line. All eyes on his time now...

Poor Phinney, fourth in the road race, fourth in the TT. You've got to feel for him.

Only two non-scorers but I suspect the winner will probably have Wiggins, Martin, Froome and Rogers plus a few others.

What happened to Chavanel? Thought he was up there at the time-check or did I make that up?

I did OK, shame I missed last place by one guy.

Awesome result though! Big Grin Big Grin

Bad luck. Did you have Sanchez as well! Bad luck for him, although I don't think he would have got a medal.

My team choice was very good apart from not having Martin, but Froome still scored well. Had 1, 3, 4, 5, 8, 9, 19. LLSanchez and Bodnar didn't score. 158 I think. With Sanchez maybe 5th/6th, would have had a shot at winning the stage I reckon.

I got 166 I think with sanchez the only one not scoring so you would have been behind me, good scoring all the same.

1,3,4,6,8,9,19 but made a mistake... my the other two riders were in last night when I updated my team but they didn't ride.

Shame to see Cancellara in what looked like a lot of pain at the end... hope he recovers fully soon.

Who were your other two as the list of riders hasn't changed in quite a few days since Evans dropped out.

The roster on here might have changed, but if you looked around you would have seen who was rider Wink

Had chavanel and sanchez as my two stars, if only i had gone with either rogers or pinotti, i flirted with all combo's except pinotti with rogers, so at best i lost out 5th place, but would have potentially had other scoring DS's had i gone a different route. my not wanting two spanish riders cost me as thats why i went with bazayev and chavanel over pinotti and Castravejo

Anyway roll on the next race and hopefully I can do better. Just seem to have got worse as the season has gone on.

Unlucky TER, yes I remember you having some tough breaks in the TdF as well. Glad you mentioned about roll on next race - I'd completely forgotten about the Eneco Tour - best get looking at the startlist!

PS - Today was OK for me - 1,3,4,5,9,19. Rogers instead of Chavanel would've been the way to go.

Dave's probably watching the Olympics like everyone else.

Reckon I'll hold my position in the overall which is my only concern until the Vuelta. Eneco tour looks like a bunch of sprint finishes. Not very interesting. Roll on the Spanish mountains, although I'm away for a week in a Normandy Gite with no Internet in the middle of that so not sure how I'm going to handle it.

I think you could sub froome in for Martin and still score same, but seems about right as apart from 1,2,3 the expensive stars didnt score well
