1,2,5,8,13 + GC for Horndog, Nibs, Valderde & Roche.

60th on stage, finished 421st overall  39

Still, highest placed I've been on the whole of this Vuelta.

1= on a stage.
24th in purist overall and 1st in the forum.
187th overall but wasn't really playing for that after a bad start.
So not bad at all!

Zubeldia shouldn't have been a surprise, he's finished inside the top 20 of a grand tour 9 times

Richeze was a good sprinter before his ban and has got some of his form back lately, but getting a little old for sprinting  3

The best Purist team possible for the Vuelta? Mostly climbers, of course... Here's my stab at what would have been the best possible Purist team :

40.0 Alejandro Valverde
29.1 Vicenzo Nibali
20.9 Daniel Moreno
14.3 Nicolas Roche
12.9 Christopher Horner
12.8 Domenico Pozzovivo
9.5 Leopold Konig
6.1 Maximiliano Ariel Richeze
3.0 Haimar Zubeldia

For a total of 2792 points... benwatson1989's Rouleurs Revenge Purist) got 2229 points with the following riders:

Alejandro Valverde
Vicenzo Nibali
Sergio Luis Henao Montoya
Samuel Sanchez
Nicolas Roche
Tomasz Marczynski
David Arroyo Duran
Ivan Basso
Christopher Horner

I guess the biggest surpises for me were Richeze and Zubeldia, well, at least for the beginning of the Vuelta...

Without adding up id hazard a guess that Gilbert scored more fantasy points than Pozzovivo, as although high on GC didnt have that many stage placings, but could be wrong, as Gilbert scored more than Sammy

Congrats Alan! Foiled again - I've not won a purist or standard forum comp yet this season, despite being 25th overall in standard and 3rd (somehow) in purist!  102

50th in Vuelta purist and 95th in standard - I'll take that considering I came 575th in the Vuelta last year!

Thanks Chris. Wished I'd believed in Nicholas Roche but wasn't convinced by him even though he's the favourite rider of Phil Unwin, an erstwhile colleague. (Not convinced by Horner then or now but that's another thread and I don't want to set Gkam off on a rant  3 )

Fair enough, I hadn't added it up, it was just a guess, but its quite tight
