Tour De Pologne - Stage 7

Its TT time! I've just moved house, I'm feeling lucky! Or out of the loop! I can't decide which! Well one of the two anyways!

Somehow I don't think the big guns are going to be firing. I've got a feeling I'm not going to do the obvious.

In was wondering the same, will Wiggins and Cancellara really go for it or will we see one of the lesser guys take it?

Also, which of the guys at the top of GC are the 'least worst' against the clock?

Ive brought in Cancellara for 10 penalty points.

I think the current leader will win overall

I think Phinney will win the day

4 transfers no pens, stuck with 5 GC riders and brought in 4 who have TT form this season. No Wiggo or Spartacus though Nerd

Mine's a bit messy to finish off, one pen to bring in four obvious ones - I actually think Wiggins and Cancellara will go for it today but we shall see. Don't have them both though. 11th at the moment but expecting to fall short of the top 10 unless Luis Leon Sanchez has a stormer. I Enjoyable race from a fantasy point of view for those that had time for it after the TdF, which I did, fortunately.

Yes, mine looks a bit similar. I've passed on Brad and Fab but I'm hoping Tayl Phinn will fly.

10 points penalty

Cancellara
Phinney
Riblon
Weening
Izagirre
Cappechi
Sorenson
Marczynski
Rohregger

Phinney currently fastest is all I can tell you

Got a feeling the top 3 on GC will be Riblon, Weening and Izagirre

current top 5

1ST PLACE PHINNEY Taylor (BMC)
2ND PLACE PINOTTI Marco (BMC)
3RD PLACE SERGENT Jesse (RLT)
4TH PLACE MIHAYLOV Nikolay (CCC)
5TH PLACE CLEMENT Stef (BLA)

Doesn't bode too well for my team, need Fabian to do well, should finish soon.

Before I went mad yesterday and wasted my transfers I would have had the top 3 currently Sad

As I post that Cancellara goes fastest by 18 seconds Smile looks like my penalty will pay off, I think Fabian will end up at least top 3

Picked up Wiggins, Cancellara, Sergent, Clement and Phinney so relatively happy although I did consider Pinotti which is annoying.

Kept Majka, Riblon, Matysiak and Mestre so two GC, five TT and some filler.

Currently 54 points behind the race leader so no real chance of winning but want to secure my 7th 'Tour Top Ten, badge Smile

I think the top 6/7 will stay the same now.

Didn't gamble on Wiggo, big mistake, I went Riblon instead Thinking

Dropped a couple of place but still managed 8th overall and the Forum Scorum title, not a bad weeks work Big Grin

Clement and Sergent were disappointing and I regret not picking Pinotti but c'est la vie.
