TdS stage 9 - uphill ITT

by cherrypicked   June 16, 2013  

Will the GC contenders prevail or will the specialists dominate the top 10? Van Garderen seems likely for the win and near certainty for the podium - but can you fit him into your team?

I made three changes at no penalty and note that I have nine different countries represented in my team. Regretting not having moved Vrecer into my team earlier in the week...

I could tell everyone my team, but I'd be given my £10 back and banished forever from road.cc.

I don't know how I've managed to contrive such a wholly inappropriate squad, but there it is. Kangert for the win today (N.B. I haven't picked him). Surprise

All change for me, 5 transfers, 2 penalties. Probably another 2 point scoring stage

I've gone for the dubious tactic of picking riders that I want to do well:

Frank
Velits
Rasmussen
Schleck
L.L Sanchez
Kreuziger
Borghini
Rui Costa
Mori

Was tempted but I went against my better judgement as its that that usually costs me points Thinking

I know, but I like him. In any case, I ran out of transfers.

@stevemarks - did you mean Wuss... I wouldn't say that to his face Wink

I had two transfers for the stage and enough credits from taking out Kristoff & Demare for either Tejay & a cheap DS or Kangert & Meyer... went for the latter... here's hoping!

He was outside the time limit (902 code on TdS results, OTL on procyclingstats). Last man should be Jonas Ahlstrand. Please let me be right as I had Ahlstrand in my team Big Grin

Kangert, Pinot and Peraud in for 10 pen points. Just got home from scoring at our round of the National Youth Omnium series to 175 points Big Grin So glad I didn't go for TJ + 1 low priced rider.

Costa + TG, or costa, kangert + Pinot but 14 point penalty? Rather unlike me, played safe and it cost me tour top ten badge Plain Face lesson learnt...

Looking forward to a break now before Tdf!
