Tour De France - Étape 1

by backflipbedlem   June 28, 2013  

So We're nearly there! Last bit of tinkering to be done!!
Thought I'd open the post early!

Are we confident?

Think my team is finally nailed down. Done my most amount of planning for a race so far, and planned up to stage 2 transfers! Beat that!

Good luck all!

So now official results are form the 3km mark??? What is going on??
Good luck sorting the scores out Dave Wink

The difference between me and lance Armstrong is that I still have a chance of winning the Tour de France Smile

Everyone is reporting Kittel as the win

Official computer has taken times at the 3km to go, with Gutierrez in yellow

Guess we shall see soon

Sounds like the bus was at fault but organisers should have had someone to prevent such a mistake happening in the first place.

The crash might have happened in any case but Cav seemed to be ok. Need to find out how Sagan is as I was going to bring him in tomorrow. Now I'm not so sure.

Had Sagan and Cav in today so not so good. Mind you i also had Kristoff so not all doom and gloom.

Decision now is do i keep sagan in for tommorrow or ditch him. Will hang on to see how he is first i suppose.

1 and 6 is still better than nothing, plus the IM sprint, should still be a solid score

1,2,15 plus cav and greipels IM points. Should have over a hundred.

Think it will be wise to wait before making transfers.

Was going to bring Sagan in tomorrow, maybe not now.

An award, awarded by the commissioners, as to who they deem to have been the most combative, aggressive, courageous rider on a stage = 10 fantasy points to that rider

Stumped for tomorrow, who to keep out of Grepiel and Cav, as Greipel looked worse off, but as for the IMS towards the start if they both go for it Greipel is better priced. Will axe Bouhanni and keep Kittel now, as Kittel will still get a couple of green jersey points.

Then who to bring in, Sagan? he went down, maybe one for Gerrans, or Nava Thinking Already have Dumoulin and Hivert who id expect to be there

I'm well pleased with 108th.....especially as I stacked my team for stage 2

Cav plus either Kittel or Kristoff out tomorrow.....probably Kristoff as it's more credits and Kittel is higher placed in all competitions.
