Plenty of Dutch/Belgian riders to start

Boonen(Riding in the Belgian champ colours)
Petacchi(No Cav/Greipel/Sagan so should feature)
Van Dijk(Why not?)
Boom(Rabo's team leader for this)
Westra(Another overall threat)
Steegmans(sprints and TT's pretty well)
Phinney(my pick to win overall!!)
Boeckmans(after Moser was delisted....can he continue TDF form?)

2,4,5,9 for me - happy with that. Didn't see it - did poor Boonen get involved in another crash?

Nah Boonen rolled in (behind the sprint, gave up with about 2/300m to go), whether he was in the top 20 time will tell

1, 3, and 4 for me based on the official top 10 that I've seen. Normally I'd say that's pretty good but it looks like everyone else had the same ideas as me (or better) so I don't know how I'm going to pull ahead in the purist league.

VERY confusing and I think its going to cause BIG problems with scoring, as they have the overall, but including the time bonuses. So everyone is out of position.

The finish line position is not listed Thinking

1,3,4,17 and 18 for me. Gonna keep it purist for the time being just to see how they do.

Hi guys - don't know if I'm the first to point out that the scores don't seem quite right unless I'm missing something?

EG Haussler 14? (gets at least 22 for coming 4th)
Blythe 11, Kristoff 4. Haven't checked any others so may be more...

Don't use the official site Dave, as they are not listing it as they cross the line, they are only listing the GC thats including the time bonuses. The link above is spot on. I'll paste it again for you

No young rider points?

It clearly says on the scoring criteria for the stage that there would be?

Also APPOLLONIO was scored 3 for 18th but he's 18th GC he was 12th for the stage which would be 9 points! Nerd

Stupid time bonuses have made it well confusing Confused Confused

So no young rider points then? Otherwise Kittel would be 55,Demare 47 and so on.

No young riders classification in the race, so no points in the game Wink

right, so i got a bit confused here Smile

there's no young riders classification. there is a primus jersey which i've awarded points for, on a 5-down-to-1 basis, Urtasun leads. I'd assumed without really looking at the riders that it was the young rider jersey. but urtasun's no spring chicken, is he?

so, what exactly is it? and shall we award points for it?

also, there wasn't any mention of the intermediate sprints in the stuff i found on the race (patchy at best) so i left them out.

Primus appears to be combativity NOT young riders(Millar's 6th on Primus!!).

Easy enough to get Young Rider standings via

http://www.uci.infostradasports.com/asp/lib/TheASP.asp?PageID=19006&Spor...

click on general clasification and award 5-1 for all 25 and under?

It was specified on the scoring criteria and was therefore a huge factor in selection even if there is no jersey.

Hardly a factor in selection. With only a max of 5 points, There is no way thats how most people picked there team as almost 1/3 of the field are under 25 if I've looked at it right Devil

No scores for young and the combative (Primus) Shouldn't be scored either, as thats normally just 10 points to one person. Which, without the intermediates, we cant work out who wins what.

Lets just have, GC, Points and Finishing positions

7 stages of 5,4,3,2 & 1 = 105 maximum Young rider points. Crying

Yeah 105 over all, but the chances of you having the top 5 young riders for 7 stages is about the same as winning the Euromillions Devil

if there isn't a young rider jersey then we won't be awarding young rider points, so sorry about that. my mistake. there won't be primus points either, so updating the scores.
