Vuelta Stage 14

by TERatcliffe26   September 1, 2012  

Well I had 4 transfers for today, but bouhanni dropping out cost me...

I thought for today in the end it would better to keep viviani (could have a chance of coming last) rather than a rider not racing.

So ive decided Galdos is the guy for todays break and its in for bouhanni. Also brought in J-Rod, Contador and Nocentini

my team

J-Rod
Viviani
Valverde
Contador

Anacona
Galdos
Macrzynski
Nocentini
Talansky

Looks like Moncoutie does want to go out on a fifth consecutive Vuelta KOM.......good man Big Grin

I could certainly do with him gobbling up all the points

Thank you roadcc for setting up this game, although I only joined late I am enjoying playing very much. I will fully admit I am totally rubbish at it however I am learning. I am really looking forward to competing for a full season.
Yesterday was not a good stage for me 45points and like many I had Bouhanni who was a lucky pick for me when I started.
Today it is looking better.
Today's team for me is as follows
Christopher Froome
Joaquin Rodriguez
Alejandro Valverde
Nicolas Roche
Mikel Astarloza
Javier Moreno
Aitor Galdos
Simon Clarke
Andrew Talansky

Nope. Using the computer I normally use.

I've copied the last 10 posts. It seems there is a bug in the system or server somewhere

I don't think its anything to do with our equipment. Its the host system/server which is the problem as I've tried on the various computers/tablets and phone's in the house.

Dave might just need to give the server a kick and restart it Nerd

Well I am losing places and points but I'm sticking to my guns NO Contador on my team ever. Sorry, no I not, I just don't like him even if it means dropping position in my area I've been sitting Third most of the season but now steadily dropping but I don't care he won't be on my team Raised Eyebrow Smug

1,2,3,6,9,20 + Clarke. Not too bad a day. Around 50th in premium Vuelta after a week in Normandy, sitting next to a wall to get wireless from next door on my iPhone,(both gites owned by the same owner - nothing dubious). Bit easier now I'm home but didn't lose too much position on GC (the overall - 15th, maybe 14th today). Nice to see the race live though. I like Purito - I hope he wins it. [Good holiday as well!!]

1,2,5,6,9 plus Clark stage
1,2,3,8,gc
1,2,4 hills overall

1,2,4,5 in overall points

However as it is a summit finish I assume there are no mountain points.

There seemed to be some server and timestamp issues during the stage yesterday which led to the 'timewarp' jokes so I'm guessing that(and the fact that even admins have to sleep)may have something to do with it.

Unless they're totalling up the points for Lars Boom in the 'Invisible' Jersey competition Wink

I'm kind of bummed that the stage scores aren't up... Sad

It's kind of cool to assess your position in the overall competition before you pick your transfers, just because depending how much you trail by you might make risky or safer choices...

I don't think they've ever taken this long! Sad

But... I guess they can't be slaves to the game! Sad
