Just a minor point on high scores - my Palmares shows a highest score of 222 (from yesterday - St 5 of VPV) but I had 242 in the Col D'eze TT in Paris-Nice. Any idea why?

i'll have a look at that

Bizarrely I'm in the same boat except my best stage score is shown as the 212 I got in the 2012 Tour of Britain stage 6 Welshpool-Caerphilly rather than my 242 for the Col D'Eze ITT in Paris-Nice.

scrub that, the data was right in the DB but wasn't displaying correctly. should be now...

Thanks, Dave! Appreciate it! Smile I know I moan a lot but I am definitely thankful for all the attention! Smile

By the way, not that you're in the mood to do any research on this, but I would expect there's a ton of scores this year that far surpass last year's - 2012 -Season High Score, right?...

Hi - a very minor point, but I don't seem to have the right number of 180s in my achievements - I'm assuming both purist and standard count?

Wun hunnert an' EIGHHHHH - TTTY...!!!

Sorry, just get an urge to say that whenever I see the number "180" written down.

Once chalked an office darts match where the post boy got three into the treble 20. Proud moment for him, and for me... Big Grin

I've thought long and hard about this. The Game seems to he getting increasingly competitive, and the Forum more controversial. There's one solution. Ditch the Bianchi-esque prizes and offer cycle clips, valve caps, the odd roll of bar tape etc. Any takers? Thought not.

Personally play for a bit more interest when watching cycling on Eurosport.....Not really interested in the prizes, although its always nice to get prezzies (had 2 parcels off roadcc so far).....

If I won a Bianchi.....I would probably donate it to enrique, so that he could ride off into the sunset and never be seen or heard of again.... Smile

No, not in the Giro, not making any transfers in the Tour of California yet but it wouldn't matter if I did because it's a premium comp and therefore everyone can bank transfers.

I can't lie, in the Giro I did from the first few stages, so I could switch my whole team out. It failed to improve. Haven't made any changes on rest day because I have the team I want, so storing transfers for the flat stages, so I can make big changes to a decent sprint team and back to climbers
