Dauphine Stage 5 - Help!

by backflipbedlem   June 5, 2013  

Ok Guys!
I'm 13th overall, don't know how it happened, but so close to a high roller badge! Don't know when this chance might happen again! I'm 10 points off and only got 2 transfers!
I'm basically asking for your help!

Current team:

Froome
Meersman
Porte
Barguil
Janse Van Rensburg
Veilleux
Fairly
Martin
Pinotti

Thinking of getting out Martin, and Pinotti, as only brought them in for TT, but doesn't give me much money to work with!

What do you guys think? Any help would be greatly appreciated!!!

I couldnt make anything fit well on a 2/3 transfer combo, so made only one change and stuck with the rest, gives me a bit more leeway to switch to sprinters tomorrow, and switch back again after...
Its either a break, or I think more likely a sky train blowing everyone out, froomedog taking the win.

Christopher Froome (SKY)
Michal Kwiatkowski (OPQ)
Richie Porte (SKY)
Tony Martin (OPQ) OUT ------> Leopold Konig IN
Rohan Dennis (GRM)
Thomas Damuseau (ARG)
Natnael Barhane (EUC)
Reinardt Janse Van Rensburg (ARG)
David Veilleux (EUC)

I actually think vielleux will ry to get in the break again today to try to claim the mountain jersey , I also think Roland will attack on the summit finish to take the win ....still after the way my picks have gone I wouldn't bet on them Sad

with Vielleux only 1.09 down on the leader he wouldn't be allowed to get in the break. Nerd

Realised that may be a possibility but was hoping they would have let him go because of the finish .....still either way I was wrong ....Again!

Please don't let Enrique beat me overall ....I'll be suicidal if that happened Sick

107 in the end, missed a couple of points for Barguil. still 9th overall and leading Forum Scorum but dropping away slightly. Top spot is out of reach so fighting to stay top 10.

Plus, with De Gendt and Kwiatkowski my purist team had a poor day and dropped a few places.

111 for me after a 20 point penalty. Not bad, but not good either.

It can be difficult to come from behind but a top 10 finish isn't out of the questions, you just need to call the next few stages correctly and possibly take a risk or two (time for penalty transfers?).

Thoroughly enjoyed that, the look on Bertie's face as he could not keep up with Froome was priceless Big Grin .

You could almost see his TdF hopes get obliterated, mind you thats another race and still a way off yet.

142pts good enough for 25th on the stage backing up my 3rd in the ITT......so when you see that I'm still not in the top 250 it's obvious what a shocker I had during the early 'V fo Victory' stages!!.
