Thought i would start the post off early. I've made my transfers and got rid of Paolini and G. I think they spent to long out front today to make a go of it again tomorrow.

Hope i'm not wrong  39

Is Mr Boom racing tomorrow?

He's still in the list but not the official start list.

On official start list it looks like Tankink NOT Boom. I hope not as I picked Boom on the basis of form and the fact he was in the road cc list. I've just looked at official start list to check it out. Looks like a wasted pick if the official start list is correct  14

No Boom, If you had looked at the startlist and the PDF I provided, you would have known this.

But we won't know until 11.30am if there is even a race. -9 forecast, so it might be cancelled.

Also just done my transfers and accidentally left Boom in, now time to work out if its worth spending 10 points on taking him out, I think probably not.

I've been looking.... Nobody of same value or lower thats worth the risk in my opinion. If you have some credits banked there might be someone but nothing concrete within 4 or 5 credits. I still think I have a good team and rather the race went ahead than not.

Gone for

Geraint Thomas (SKY)
Andre Greipel (LOT)
Jurgen Roelandts (LOT)
Elia Favilli (LAM)
Yauheni Hutarovich (ALM)
Sep Vanmarcke (BLA)
Preben Van Hecke (TSV)
Greg van Avermaet (BMC)
Niki Terpstra (OPQ)

Left G in, after thinking about it. Reckon his form is good enough to go for it again. Brought in Greipel, Hutarovich, Favilli and van Hecke (didn't realise he was in the break today, just chose him on the name as I needed someone cheap - still, you never know - riders do sometimes go on breaks two days in a row).

I couldn't see anything as I had to take my younger daughter on photography trip. My older daughter has got a football match tomorrow so I'm going to have to see if I can get an Internet feed while I watch her game and see the end at home. I might manage it if I'm lucky.

I'd like Cav to win but I have the feeling this is not the right day for him.

Gone big for this one - Cav AND Gorilla! It's a gamble, but I reckon they've both started the season in such form that a face off is inevitable.

Cue A.N. other Belgian worth 5.3 taking the win with EBH second, Boonen third.

Seen as Boonen isn't riding the KBK, its doubtful he'll be third  19

Neither Cavendish nor Greipel for me. May live to regret it.

Course it may not go ahead at all. 'Decisive meeting taking place at 11.15am CET' to decide.

Looking very doubtful now. Suspect this may be nul points for all.

Where do I address my complaints. My purist team was loaded for todays stage  14 Just as I'm on the brink of having a good result "the devil vommits into my kettle once more"  19

It'll just be zero points for everyone. It's an unlimited transfer window next so it doesn't affect the game too much except of course if you loaded your team for today, in which case, unlucky!

These things happen, its already happened once this season during the Tour Med (zero points for everyone then) and it'll no doubt happen again.

Just annoying for my purist team as I put in riders for today on that when I would have had Paolini had I not done a split deal. But hey ho on we go

Not too bad for me as my team was more for Omloop really. Would have had Paolini in Purist though if I'd known! Won't have to race back from football either so not all bad! Samyn was also cancelled in 2005 for snow according to wiki.

Quick question I made five changes to my team thus incurring a 10 point penalty as the race did not take place will i be reimbursed with the ten points lost?

I think you only have the points deducted from the day's score, so you didn't lose any.

Thats because you took the risk and made changes and took penalty points.

If the race had gone ahead, you would have still lost 10 points because of the transfer, I don't see the difference. You may or may not have scored points in the race

I suspect another trial by "Judge Dave" coming up.  16

I toyed with taking penalty points due to the Boom or not Boom issue. I decided to leave him in and not take the 10 point hit- Feel much better now if what gkam says sticks- I'm with gkam on this one  19
