giro del trentino stage 2

by JAndrewHill   April 17, 2013  

You must pick Bouet, but I think the gc guys could easily tale 6 mins off the breakaway guys from scrambled eggs.

My team is pretty bad - could've taken penalty transfers but found it difficult to find anyone obvious to bring in, so kept one or two guys for tomorrow instead. Not good on these Italian races, doesn't bode well for the Giro!

Wiggins (seems to be struggling with saddle sores tho')
Nibali
M Rodriguez and Duarte (gotta love them crazy Columbians)
Pardilla
Santambrogio
Konig
Felline
Lander (kept in the futile hope he'll be last man)

I've taken a punt and left wiggo out. my squad is:

Scarponi
Nibali
Pozzovivo
Santambrogio
Rebellin
Bouet
Vigano
Rodriguez
Lander

Big risk leaving out wiggo, but Pozzovivo could be a gamble that pays off. And wiggo did say he was thinking of getting off his bike yesterday, in a youtube interview I watched. What a joker!

hadnt heard of his comment!
But sky clearly dont care for the GC here, having given 7 min head start to bouet yesterday, and i dont think he's necessarily the man to cross the line first unless he's soloing to the win. also hasnt shown top form yet, which might be the plan, but ive got a feeling he might not be fully there this year. think nibali trumps him today. now watch him beat everyone by a minute!

Forgot to make any transfers so have:
Wiggins
Tiralongo
Pate
Basso
Bouet
Jacek Morajko
Jarlinson Pantano
Francesco Failli
Johann of Zyl

Should be alright, would only have got rid of Pate anyway, maybe Wiggins for Scarponi on a whim.

For those not watching - 7km from the finish on the climb, Rolland, Pirazzi and Siutsou have about 20 secs from a group of 20-30 chasers.

Well done Ray!

I had 2,3,4 standard, 2,3,5 purist, but I don't think many of my other riders will have scored, if any.
