Il Lombardia

by stumps   September 25, 2012  

I thought i would get things going for the race on Saturday.

I appreciate its still a few days away but the forum has gone strangley quiet so i thought it could be given a boost.

Team wise its a climber / all rounders stage and with only about 6 points between Wiggo and J-Rod for No1 in the world it could be exciting stuff.

Yep, 31k to go and Nibali and Tiralongo go down heavily. Both back up and cycling but not looking good.

Hi stumps

Basso on the front, not looking too bad for me at the mo but treacherous roads so anything could happen

17k to go and we have Faria Da Costa with a 31 sec lead over a small peloton of no more than 30+ riders.

final climb, should be a further selection here. I don't think Pinot is there and I'm not sure about one or two others in my team but still quite a few in play. Will Purito take over Wiggo??

Purito ahead with Contador, Uran and Henao. Quintana and maybe Santabroglio. Got 3 of those.

Only 8k to go and J-Rod out on his own, weather is horrendous with standing water on the roads.

Amazing that no Spaniard has ever won. Not much of a gap though so not sure he'll make it. Could all depend on staying upright now.

So that was crap! Got 5th + team bonus and hopefully breakaway bonus for slagter......Which should give me a grand total of 35 Rolling On The Floor

Went up one place to 18th. Not bad overall position and won a stage in TdF. Think I'll play again next year.
