Paris-Nice stage 7

by TERatcliffe26   March 10, 2013  

Coppel currently fastest 20'33" although that was half a minute slower than he managed last year. I reckon that will see him finish somewhere 10-15th

My team is this

Porte
Westra
Talansky
Chavanel
Tejay
Peraud
Spilak
Ullisi
Navarro (my wildcard Thinking )

My wildcard was Siutsou but he's just come in 12th. Apart from that, switch Spilak for Menchov and you have my team - I think a lot of teams will be pretty similar today!

Also my gamble to go with Navarro over Jeanesson has not paid off either

Westra > Quintana is the illogical transfer that could have been a stage-winning move for me and doubtless many others.

Should be a full house and 1-5 plus 7, 9 and Coppel.

Poor for me apart from 1-8 on GC

Should have kept Quintana axed Westra, and gone for Jeanesson over Navarro

This team will win the stage and can be afforded

Porte
Talansky
Tejay
Chavanel
Qunitana
Spilak
Peraud
Ulissi
Jeanesson

I think it's a full house and I expect most people will get one (will be my second - they're hard to get) but should have swapped Velits for Spilak instead of Ulissi. Peraud for Menchov worked out well though. Nearly didn't use my transfers as well until I checked last year's result.

I have 7 of those 9, Coppel for Jeannesson and Westra for Spilak.

Should get another 180 badge if I'm lucky.

234 points for me I reckon and actually a decentish score for my purist team for once (111 points)

I think 264 will win the stage

Had a few transfers held back for today, so badges galore... 180, Full House, Stage Podium. Bonus was having Hutarovich in my Purist team which also gives me my first Lanterne Rouge of the year Devil

Thanks, I was worried about the Stage Podium badge as I've been close but it seems to be getting more competitive as the season goes on.

TTs are always tight but today seems to have been really really close.

I fluked my full house - thought I'd blown it but Menchov just sneaked 18th, and Siutsou got 5 for Porte's win. Managed to watch it all this afternoon and Tirreno as well, first time in a while I've been able to do that! Hopefully San Remo next weekend.

On another note - anyone know if you can watch Eurosport Player through a PS3? I feel like you should be able to, but can't work it out. Or should I just get a cable and plug my laptop into my telly?

Damn. 1 mistake today cost me. Swapped Quintana for Peraud. Should have been Westra for Peraud. 242 points and only 14th. Missed the Podium badge again Sad Oh well, at least I got another full house and high stage score badge.

Wow! That was impressive, dr! Pretty cool! How long did you plan that out, dr? Out of curiousity, did you have to save a lot of transfers to stack that team that way or did you already have it looking pretty much like that for the previous mountain Stage, Stage 5? That's gotta be up there near the top of the High Scores for the season, right? Pretty cool! Wow! Smile

I only had the two transfers and used them to bring in TJVG and Coppel for De Gendt and Lofkvist. I already had the others and had gotten fairly lucky by dropping my sprinters for GC guys a day earlier than most and having Talansky when he won. I'd kept Chavanel from stage one and had Porte in time for his win too, got fairly lucky really Big Grin
