vac stage 4

by JAndrewHill   March 21, 2013  

Wiggo might enjoy another peak finish today, but sky might do better if he acts as lead out man for rigoberto, if he can sprint better... so I should pick lopez if I do my usual fantasy pick strategy. Liar

OOps, I might have let slip Skys tactics at the top of this thread...
just seen Wiggo at the back of the skytrain, but who was that on his wheel??? Was is Rigoberto?
Wiggo to do the lead out for Uran today I reckon.

Transferred out Martin and Gesink so I could bring in Valverde! Martin and Gesink score lots of points and Valverde crashes out! I was already badly in this race too.

Gutted, only got 170 points then had a 10 point penalty. Thought i would have got more. Still green arrows across the board which cant be bad.

Took a 30 point penalty because I thought I had all the wrong riders, scored 83 (113) NOT great, but at least I have a decent team now

Had Salerno and Martin but unfortunately Valverde as well. Time to bring in my favourite doper, err, sorry, I mean, rider, Purito. Without a timetrial and a strong team Wiggins is lost.
