I've half a chance of grabbing third overall in purist, so even the lesser races have become important, although looking at my purist team now I'm not sure about it at all...

STD
Sagan
Caruso
Kolobnev
Stetina
Nordhaug
Albasini
Pozzato
Gallopin
Sutherland

Purist is...
Sagan
Caruso
GVA
Hesjedal
Gallopin
Pozzato
Izaguirre (Jon)

Duggan

There always is in this race...The hotel that the riders stay in is on the circuit....If they fall off the pace or are having a bad day, they just pull off and go for an early bath....Always think that its a bit unfair on the fans who turn up to see them...

Just not worth continuing once you're dropped and because it's a circuit you're only ever 16k away from a nice warm team bus.

When I use the previous results solely as a blueprint it never pays off, as I certainly would have had Wegmann (based on previous, and I had him last year), but what has he done this year so far? Not a lot.

Scores are up and I've done a quick seep up of roster changes ahead of Montreal although I expect a couple of changes before the race so I'll do an update a few hours before the race starts tomorrow.

Thats more like it, had an average last day of the Vuelta and poor first day of ToB, but Montreal saves the day!
Standard - 1,4,5,6,8
Purist - 1,3,4,5,9 plus Bell in the break, and 5 for Caruso if he finished...

126 pts. Quite pleased with that. I'm usually crap at one day races. Also, just squeaked over 20k with the 3rd race of 3-race Super Sunday Smile
