Sneaky!

Brought in Talansky and Pinotti hoping to get a high placing and GC points over the next couple of days.

My team:

Talansky
Pinotti
Feillu
Oss
Nizzolo
Clement
Roy
Pauriol
Navardauskas

Hoping for a strong score tonight then a limited amount of GC change tomorrow as it's only smaller hills.

Good luck - I had trouble with this one. Early season - first race for some who you would expect to be there in the TT - and the hill at the end? I assume they are riding their full TT rigs - anyone know?

Why the obsession with badges when you're high up in the overall table? I much prefer aiming for a high overall place. It might work though with the pen being only 10 points now but that climb at the end makes it all a bit unpredictable. Got Talansky, Rogers and Pinotti for this along with a few others who might do well. Last time I took penalty points it went wrong so playing safe at the moment.

I get the idea of using a minor race like the Tour de Med to pick up any badges you think you can aim for rather than perhaps getting the to TdF or Vuelta and still having some to collect. In the overal scheme of things the Tour de Med isn't going to get you nearly as many points as the Grand Tours, combined they're worth at most maybe 7000 fantasy points.

Anyway, people play it how they want, last year in the TdSuisse I got hacked off and needed to blow off some steam so torpedo'd my team and made loads of penalty transfers, ended up winning a stage!

It was always my plan with this race because of the discrepancy but between the first two stages (although I think I've got it wrong today). I'll be playing seriously for the rest of the race.

Unless my French has deteriorated it appears that Pinotti 'has not crossed the line'.....whether that means start or finish I'm not sure but he was due out just before Ramunas?

not sure as its only 3km and Boom is much better than people make out him to be. It will be close

Either way a 1-2 for them is good for me
