Surely a sprint finish. Used one transfer, so 3 for tomorrow.

Don't buy upgrades. Ride up grades. (Merckx)

My purist outscored my standard team, thanks mainly to the god of thunder.

I would have hoped for a full house badge tonight in the ITT, but alls I will say is I still have Mancebo, and im unsure on his skills. I expect the rest to top 20.

My purist team has now fallen by the wayside, however a Dennis/Jungels 1-2 would save it.

Took out Deignan and Acevedo from standard now, but will come back in for tomorrow, penalty transfers will be required for the last stage though

I'd have kept Acevedo and dumped Mancebo for the ITT(even if just for the fact that 'Ace' is higher up the Gc than 'The Man')

I love making up new nicknames Wink

I based it on Mancebo having a better shot at top 20 for ITT but we shall see

Seems like although ATOC stage 5 scores are now showing again,they are still not included in each players overall total for that race,e.g.i have scored 941 pts but it only shows 817 which is 144 less which is my exact score for stage 5.
