Hmm, does that mean those are good picks or you'd be better off picking someone who hasn't scored anything yet?

It means, this will keep enrique happy.....lol

But there are a couple there you could count on being in another break. The only way you are going to win a stage is having all the GC guys and then someone cheap that mops up all the points in the break Wink

Yeah, you need one very high scoring break rider (Visconti scored 73 on Sunday) plus all the GC guys scoring 30-50 points in order to take a stage win at this point in the race.

That said, the possible sprint stages (17/21) and the TT (18) won't have as high break points so if you're crap at picking breakaway riders those are probably the ones to focus on.

Strange that Keizer hasn't gone for a break yet?

Everywhere I've looked has had the current stage(16) as the most likely breakaway win stage.

No.....I haven't got him so.....cue the Keizer!!
