Tirreno-Adriatico ITT

by livestrongnick   March 12, 2013  

So last stage in a strange but close run race as far as this game goes. Nerd

Tony Martin in for Contador
Christopher Froome
Michal Kwiatkowski
Fabian Cancellara in for Appollonio
Hayden Roulston
Stefano Garzelli
Alex Dowsett for Dumoulin
Alan Marangoni
Lars Boom in for Dennis in for Santambrogio

Took a last minute 20 point penalty, nothing to lose really..... Sad

I toyed with the idea of leaving Spartacus out due to yesterday plus his comments but I can't see him taking it easy tbh

Lars Boom
Bauke Mollema
Tony Martin
Jens Mouris
Alex Dowsett
Sebastian Langeveld
Anthony Roux

Looks like 141 for me(131 with the 10pt penalty)....not too bad and at least my penalty transfer worked with Cstroviejo placing 5th for 20pts.

Almost went for Amador. Would defintely have had Cataldo or Castroviejo if I'd had a few more points.

As it is, of the four I brought in, Martin, Dowsett and Dennis got me points, disappointed that my other pick, Bodnar, didn't.

Started day top of 3 of the 5 leagues I'm in, 2nd in another. Fingers crossed I got enough points...

I'd imagine Valverde would be delighted at the performances of Amador,Dowsett and Castroviejo seeing as the Giro,Le Tour and La Vuelta all have Team time trials this season?
