San Sebastian tomorrow (Tues)

by chrisdstripes   August 13, 2012  

This has come round quick. Has anyone seen a final startlist? There are some disrepancies between the one on Cycling Fever and the current list of available riders in the fantasy game (eg Cycling Fever lists Lulu Sanchez and Diego Ulissi, but not Contador - there may be others).

So Contador? Valverde? Vinokourov? Gerrans/Albasini? Rodriguez/Moreno? I've never watched it before so really looking forward to seeing how a one-day classic with some proper hills pans out.

Mine is...
Valverde
Moreno
LL Sanchez
Uran
Nocentini
Sarmiento
Gavazzi
Ulissi
Fedrigo

Think Visconti looks good too but couldn't decide who to drop so just left as is. There are a lot of good stars, but I think there are also quite a few DS that could certainly get top 10. And we thought LBL would be all stars, and a DS ended up winning it... Thinking

Double digits for the 2 leaders. After 66km Palomares (ACG) and Aramendia (CJR) have 10 minutes on the peloton!

How can you confuse Chris Anker Sorensen(it was Majka) and Johnny Hoogerland(it was Valls Ferri) with ANYONE else!!

Then calling Henao as Uran too made it 3 out of 5 wrong in the break!!

That added to calling Gerrans as the OricaGreeny at the back without taking account of Aussie Champ colours makes the coverage very poor......reminiscent of their TDP coverage.

Simple, they get the same view as us. The numbers on their jersey is what they are trying to use. But their startlist is wrong after alot of changes overnight.

If you don't have the right riders and numbers, you can only go by what you have

1 and 2 so far, hoping for a strong result from Moreno and Rodriguez. If I can get another DS or two in the top 10 too I might be on for a stage win Big Grin

EDIT: 1, 2 and 8, that's it. Not so great after all as I suspect Gerrans, maybe Florencio, Anton and a few others were probably quite popular.

Sour grapes for Lotto-Belisol: Meersman in the wake of LL Sanchez to third place gespurt. Simon Gerrans, winner of Milan-Sanremo, finished second. Greg Van Avermaet's thirteenth.

Well at least I was wrong about Meersman beating Gerrans. I got 1, 2 and that's all. Better than 1, 3, at least.

What should of been a great one day race was ruined with too many of the top riders saving their legs for next week....And people wonder why one day racing is rapidly losing all of its sponsors....Not impressed....

Today's scores are being updated as we speak. Apologies for the delay, 'bigger fish' and all that. All league tables should be updated in a while, just need to coax the road.cc hamster to run faster in his wheel.
