Giro del Trentino - stages 1a and 1b

by drheaton   April 15, 2013  

Is anyone else having a real headache picking teams for this race?  I can't decide what to do for the first day (is stage 1a a sprinty or climby stage!?) and there seems to be a lack of pickable mid price climbers.  There are the expensive (30+) GC guys and the cheap 10 credit and under riders but in between are a lot of riders I think are overpriced or unlikely to do anything.

Cheers. I think just one penalty transfer would leave me in the red today!

Wow a whopping 9 points for stage 1a people! When it became obvious that breakaway was going to stay away I was convinced of a big fat ZERO. Plain Face

I made four penalty transfers with Bouet,Rodriguez,Cerny and Moyano coming in for Ferrari,Gatto,Niemiec and Viviani as I think there GC,Points,KOM and youth competition points during the TTT and the other 3 stages to come will easily outweigh the 40pt penalty.

Well, I had stinker today! Missed out on the late transfer jiggery pokery - would 've snuck in Lunchtime O'Bouet if I'd known - and got an incredible, hilarious 4 (four) points, easily my lowest ever score. Maybe this should be added to the 'My Palmares' section?

Not sure how the TTT has shaken down, to be honest I've never taken the time to figure out how the scoring works. I had one person each from the top three teams, so hopefully that'll add up to something (anything!)?

Bad day for BMC, no?

Pleased on the whole. A huge 9 points for 1a, then Sky and Astana riders x 4 in 1b. Expected Androni to do a little better but it'll do. Tomorrow, I'm confused about.

Went OK today except for BMC letting me down, unfortunately my last transfer last night was Duque in for Bouet...

21 pts this morning was enough to put me top of the East Anglia league for the first time ever - could be the shortest ever stay at the top tho if Alan Tullett scored well in the TTT!

Good day for me with Bouet, Duque and Kennaugh giving me 7th place, but BMC let me down in the TT, but was saved by 4 x Sky & Astana!

My question is, should I bring in Serpa for tomorrow?

It seems that Pellizotti is greyed out of my team but he finished stage 1a in position 53. Am I right in thinking he should not be greyed out?

Interesting that you can be top in EA as I had Bouet in my purist team and I am in your region. Just wondering how that works?

Sorry! got it easily confused me, probably cause I have been having a bad time and slipped to 4th, not looked at the overall, which is what you meant.....

Sorry again for being so thick.

Right just got in from work, going to do the part b scores now.

As for Pellizotti, I don't know why he is greyed out, I never removed him so will investigate if he is still greyed out after the next update.

most aggressive rider is being scored as I was unsure on how on how they do it, as alot of tours are not as straight forward as le tour and have weird points systems

Seems his selection has somehow been altered, I will get this fixed, however it won't happen right away as I need to re-do the scores and re-update

In trying to sort out Pellizotti's points, when I re-did the scores I missed putting his points in, will re-update again now

Incidentally I didn't receive a full house badge for stage 1b.......perhaps you don't get one if you take penalty points?

Yes, no full house badges for TTT's, think it's somewhere in the badge info (which only shows up if you don't have the badge yet annoyingly).
