I had 6 transfers and went on a gut instinct of who would be in the break today, that failed as the 3 guys I left out of the 9 I had picked are in the break.....

Kept my sprinters for tomorrow though Wink

Yay! Battaglin. Good lad. Not in my fantasy team but one of my favourite riders - his blog of last year's Giro was a nice read too. And I had a little each way bet on him today - puts my betting account for the Giro in a much healthier position than my fantasy team!

On a side note, this commentator is getting so much wrong - is it annoying anyone else?!

Balls balls balls balls balls.

Last night I took out Felline, Visconti and Paolini, all three finished in the top 10 Angry Angry Angry

I really hate this game sometimes, I totally misjudged today's stage and paid the penalty (literally). That pretty much ends my overall hopes.

Ouch. Unlucky dr. Although the last 2 days have been very unpredictable, you've probably still hung in there over the 2 days after your pick yesterday. 17 stages to go...

I had some green arrows yesterday but I reckon I'll fall way behind today. If I'm within 150 points of the leader I'll be lucky but that's a long way behind after just 4 stages.

3,8,14 plus bits and bobs for me, so not great, but really chuffed for Battaglin. (Shame Wiggo lost a few secs - but if that's his bad luck out of the way, at least he didn't lose much).

Jeannesson and Pellizotti up there for my purists which was a nice bonus.

Now to decide whether the sprinters can get up this hill near the end tomorrow...

Annoying is not the word...getting the odd rider wrong is understandable....but he cannot tell the difference between green and flourescant yellow....the commentary and the Italian camera work is a tad disappointing.... Plain Face

I think a small gap developed in the sprint, which was judged sufficient to be considered a different group. If that's right, a bit of bad judgement.

I also took out Felline but thankfully I left the other two in. As for the overall, just need to get some more picks right....looks like that's tough to do but it does open up an opportunity

At least my transfers kind of paid off, brought in Uran, Santambrogio, Paolini and Weening last night (for Bouhanni, Haas, Zandio and Vicioso who would have scored me zilch) and already had Visconti

Think I will keep it the same for tomorrow

Just looking at transfers for stage 6. I have not made any for today so should have 4 for tomorrow. The transfer window is open but is showing that I only have 2 transfers. Just to clarify I am a premium player so I should have 2 rolled over for tomorrow. Can someone kick the coggs please. Thinking

OK forget the above. Just gone back into it and now it says 4. Perhaps the window had just changed and the coggs were still turning. Big Grin
