Schlecky was last seen sitting in the shade of the team bus with a six-pack of california coolers.. making loud statements that everybody hates him and nobody really "get him" except Frankie..

Meyer

Think Chavanel could do reasonably well today.

Im going different, Acevedo and Deignan back in tomorrow for DZ and Jungels. Then penalty transfers for the final stage. Should be made up for by points from Jungels and Chava. Also Chava has finished in top 20 when leading out Meersman

MOFO on DZ.....I took him in over Dennis and left Frank instead of Pinotti....seems to have failed so far with them sitting 1-2

Why didn't I pick Dennis?! Obviously he'd've been a great pick.

Bit disappointed in Chavanel. Hoping he might scrape me a point or two by not dropping out of the top twenty, but otherwise my picks are looking pretty ropey.

Unless, of course, Andy...

I have Dennis in my purist at least (just for today, same with Jungels) but same with DZ in my standard, went with him as my Garmin rider. never considered Pinotti as he won't figure tomorrow, and Jungels and DZ are the riders for using my transfers on tomorrow

So mancebo should score points, I reckon my purist team is in with a shout of best purist team today Thinking

But a definite disaster for my standard team

1,4,6,7,10,16,18,19 and 24. Bit disappointed with that but I suppose it's another Full House as consolation.

Dammitt, missed out on another podium badge yet again! By my reckoning I've got 1,2,4,6 and whatever Busche and Chavanel picked up.

Will there be a 'Courage' award for the TT?

Podium badge for my purist team Smile

1,2,3,7,16,18 for purist (plus points jersey for Sagan)

1,4,6,7,10,15,16,19 standard could have ended u worse Thinking Only rider from my team who won't score is DZ Crying Should have gone Westra and Dennis instead of Chava and DZ

DZ didn't even start, he crashed in warm up, so won't be scoring anything

Captain America short of a Full House Angry

deadline time is difficult for me with work and such so I'm tending to make my transfers at the same time as at the Giro but hey-ho it's swings and roundabouts I suppose as our friends in other timezones probably have the same problem with european races......and to be fair I would have probably wasted a transfer and bought in Zubeldia!!

It wouldn't have made a difference, no-one knew he'd crashed until past the deadline Wink

Not quite true

..just managed to get him off my team Cool

But you would have had to be pretty quick off the mark (and on the ball) to get away with it.
