The commentator says "we're going to have to wait an awful long time to see if Bouet can hang on to the jersey".

Well, about 4 minutes actually.

Aru back on to Niemiec with 2km to go, no idea how far back Bouet is!

The ticker was saying 2.05 with 3/4km to go

I need cardoso to finish top 18 to have a chance

Hope so as I didn't see who was between Pellizotti and Bouet/Siutsou, and he defo didn't come in the next lot of riders after that off which I saw about 6/7

I believe so, I think for you Niemiec scored 30 points (non for Kochetkov, unless he came anywhere in the KOM/Sprint stnadings) for you, putting you 49 ahead of me. For me I make it Aru scored 39 and Locatelli 24, giving me 63 points, making me 14 ahead of you.

Looks like it was Cardoso 13th - full results are on PCS (although they can be unreliable initially...)

kochetkov was a bad choice for me 2 days ago and I haven't a clue who Aru is so overlooked him despite his form

Astana picked up Aru halfway through last season - he was being talked about as promising for the future, and I remember him riding well in the USA but that's all I know!

There will be a piece about Aru in my next fantasy DS blog, which will be up before the Giro starts.

I do a piece on a neo-pro or up and coming young rider in each blog, so ive done previous pieces of Kwiatkowski and Ellisonde and Aru will be my next

Got 180, won a few badges and moved up a few places.

Wasn't particularly bothered by this race, didn't like the mixed parcours and 4 days seems kind of pointless, either have a short race, or make it a week!

Roll on the Giro.

Nice last day for me Big Grin 184
stages 1a, 1b, 2 & 3 together came to 191 so very happy in the end.
Brought in Locatelli and Aru but had to drop Niemeic to do it so worked out for the best and got me my 4th 180 badge too Big Grin

Shame Suitsou didn't feature today.... Thinking

'Don't look back. Something might be gaining on you'

My 150-odd points was just enough to scrape into the top 100 - keeps my run going of top 102 (yes, 102 Thinking ) in 6 comps now since Algarve. Should add to that on Sunday (touch wood). Steady but unspectacular so far!

I listened to you about Elissonde too much and after his good performance in the Oman Green Mountain stage I put too much faith in him for Paris-Nice and Catalunya.....a long way to go for him yet but these neo-pro's will always get a good look in tours with a youth jersey.

Four days does make for a really weird race. At least five makes sense, I think, preferably a week. From a fantasy POV, if you're unlucky (ha!) at the start then it's tough to catch up later.
