Any idea what's going on? Sounds like a small group out front with the likes of Albasini and Meersman in it. Is Gesink in there?

Mistakes are costing me big time. Was sitting pretty at the top of the South West league but now i'm in danger of being 3rd after Romandie if i can't up my game! (Classic's didn't help) Crying

Hoping for Astarloza now I bet???

3,6 & 9. Interesting set of results, not something I think anyone would have expected.

hmm, not sure how this all works, 640pm in the UK and the window for TdR picks for friday is already closed. Seems a bit unfair to the folks who cant get on a pc till the evening. Scores not updated since Stage 1 either.

1) the window is fine, check to see if you're still on your purist team
2) stage 1 was yesterday as the first stage was denoted as a prologue

Anyway, scores updating.

72 for me today, not sure how that'll stand up against everyone else but I can't see too many people having Navardauskas but Gasparatto can't have been an uncommon choice.

EDIT: Up 54 places to 52nd but 100 points off the lead in just three stages!

Now, do I use some transfers and bring in Nerz/Mezgec or a GC guy going well like Costa or do I stick to the plan and keep my team as it is?
