Regretting choosing Belletti/Nibali over Nizzolo/Uran, but was away for the weekend and had to do it in a hurry on my crappy phone. Might work out for the best anyway, last day sprints can be quite unpredictable...

Cavendish (for Evans)
Nizzolo (for Uran)
Viviani (for Pirazzi)
Mezgec (for Garzelli)
Nibali
Betancur
Majka
Rodriguez
Chalapud

Got screwed by the stage changes over the weekend as I was loaded with riders chasing KoM points (Pirazzi, Rodriguez and Chalapud) but the cancellation of 19 and the gutting of the main climbs from 20 made this tactic entirely useless.

Very obvious transfers and kept in the best combination of guaranteed points I could. Wanted to ditch Rodriguez and Chalapud but didn't think it'd be worth the penalty transfers. Today's sprint could be chaos but Cav should pull through and wrap up the red jersey.

I noticed with the teams packed full of sprinters that most of you (not all of you) have left out Ferrari, who is actually from the province of Brescia.

1,2,3,4,5,6,8 plus betancurs points for me which means iIl only have a 5 point penalty rather than the 20 finally a gamble pays off again Cool

Edit
Plus obviously Cavs points from the I.Ss and the points jersey

Possible 2nd in forum scorum Giro?

I think you'll get stage top ten or better with that, assuming no penalties.

Got 1/3/4/5/7, with 10 pens + 4gc scorers ( full house badge again),happy enough with that.

Got de haes that would have finished you top 8 Wink

True but I'd already had a 20 point hit and was banking on 1,2,3,4,5,6,7 to totally negate that , still c'est le vie

Got to say 'Chapeau' to Cav(and I've not always been his biggest admirer).....he done everything asked of him in this long,weather soaked,frost-bitten Giro winning EVERY sprint he contested AND the red jersey.
