From Team Sky

Sunday’s stage has been shortened to 116km and will no longer contain the early hors-categorie ascent of the Nufenpass due to heavy snowfall at the summit.The stage will now commence in Ulrichen“Even though the Nufenpass is a HC climb, it was never going to prove decisive coming so early in the stage,”It’s going to be a far faster and more aggressive stage as a result because the route now descends all the way towards the first category climb to Crans-Montana.

Normal BS from Sky, they don't know what other teams had planned, It may have been early, but not so early to shed people out the back and make them chase on the rest of the stage. Then drop them again up the first cat.

I notice it says on the TdS website that in the UK, Skysports have the broadcasting rights. I didn't see it listed anywhere though  39

Had both Saez and Riblon in one of my teams the other day (having said that Robert came last yesterday for one and Koch finished 7th for the other) so I cant complain

RIGHT, I will not adjust stage one, but the points WILL be based on the SPRINT competition and NOT the points category, because the points is just based on finish line....

Also the final mountain will be scored correct? It was a good 2km from the finish, as you can see by who scored and where riders finished

RIGHT, here goes. Because I know people are going to complain anyway.

It will ONLY be the intermediate sprint points that will count, because they are separate from the points competition in the TdS.

SO at the moment,

The POINTS competition looks like this

1 Cameron MEYER AUS OGE 25 15
2 Bauke MOLLEMA NED BLA 27 15
3 Ryder HESJEDAL CAN GRS 33 13
4 Mathias FRANK SUI BMC 27 13
5 Niki TERPSTRA NED OPQ 29 12

But that is PURELY based on finish line points, so it WILL NOT be scored in the game.

The SPRINT looks like this

1 Enrique SANZ ESP MOV 24 12
2 Adrian SAEZ ESP EUS 27 6
3 Johannes FRÖHLINGER GER ARG 28 1
4 Christophe RIBLON FRA ALM 32 1

and WILL be scored

That's just the point, rather than just handing out bonuses for the first few to finish a stage

Yo Gkam looks like you got your Dombrowskis mixed up with your JTLs. 3 points Dombrowski for 18th place; big fat zero for JTL at 119th! Thankyou, appreciate your great work but can I have my score updated please  4

Something still seems wrong with the stage 2 scores;
Hesjedal for example;
22 for 4th
12 for cat 1 climb
9 for 2nd overall in GC
5 for 1st overall in KOM
Total 48 points for stage 2?
Other riders have similar anomalies.
Could I suggest that the general scoring notes for each stage be refined; I have been caught before on the intermediate vs overall points competition concept.
Cheers

It was MY mistake on scoring notes. The Cat's are for Grand Tours. On normal tours its 1-however many score.

So if like today, 5 people score, It goes 5,4,3,2,1

So Hesjedal

22 for 4th
5 for climb
9 for 2nd overall in GC
5 for 1st overall in KOM

The JTL and Dombrowski is just about to be fixed  26

There were seperate sprint/points competitions in the giro and we scored the points competition for positions at the end of stages and the sprint points for the first 3 to cross each point?
