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?

Ouch, that's a poor time, I assume he crashed? Potential for Lanterne Rouge?

Either way he should do better than Boom on the slope of the last 3k?

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

2,3,4,5,11,14. Didn't get the badges I was targeting, but I might have fluked Lantern Rouge if Pinotti isn't hors delai.

Scores are up and Pinotti has been listed as last finisher so gets the Lanterne Rouge award.

Well, your penalty point system worked quite well Wink Wink I meant to put in Monfort but forgot and put in Pinotti instead who ended up with lanterne rouge, the second time I've fluked it !! I'll be glad if the whole race is cancelled as I've been crap at it so far. Could have had 1-4 incl. in the Tour of Qatar if I hadn't taken out Hut last night and got the badge you were looking for. Not my day Crying

When I saw the route for today's TT I wondered how riders would cope with a flat windy 20kms followed by a steep finishing climb. Theo Bos has tweeted that Lars Boom did a cyclocross style change from his time trial bike to a road bike at the bottom of Mont St. Clair.
Clever tactics and probably what got him the win.
Very glad I had him in my fantasy team.
