ToQ Stage 4

by ray silvester   February 6, 2013  

No changes for me this time as I couldn't get Phinney in for Bookwalter without sacrificing Guardini or Kruopis and I reckon they'll both top 5 today.

Extra insurance against any eliminations too.

Cav
EBH
Bookwalter
Blythe
Krupois
Guardini
Velits
Delle Stelle
Rasch

Purists:Cav,Voss,Degenkolb,Kruopis,VanAvermaet,Guardini,Elmiger,Huffman,Modolo(out).

Looks like saving 4 transfers might have paid off if these three can stay away?

Cav won from Markus and Guardini I think, Viviani 4th maybe?

Ah crap, was hoping that Blythe would do something, should have picked Markus but totally forgot about him when making my changes...

I think Degenkolb was in the top 20 for me too, but I may axe him tomorrow, maybe go Kristoff and Guardini in Thinking

Most of BMC crashed with less than 3k to go and rolled in 5 mins down, thanking the 3k rule.
