Tour of Beijing Stage 1

by Gkam84   October 11, 2013  

WELL.....here we are, the last race of the season.

This year, been busy with the background of the game, so I haven't been sitting on the forum keeping stage update's going for those who may not get to watch it.

Stage one has just started. It goes live on Eurosport at 7.45am, I might put some update's in before that.

How do you think the whole race is going to play out, I don't see Martin (Tony) taking the win this year Day Dreaming

1,2,8,17,20

Irritatingly, dropped Sanz for Cimolai (who was waaaay off the pace) but otherwise fairly happy. Doubt I'll make any changes tomorrow; save the transfers for the lumpier bits.

Only having a BMC rider in the squad stopped me from getting a flat zero in my purist! It's actually pretty tricky to pick a non-comedy team and get no points.

That's a pleasant surprise - my first stage victory! I've missed a few races/stages recently (e.g. Binche-Chimay-Binche which I'd never heard of), but I'm glad I remembered to put a team in for Beijing.

Wrong Argos(Veelers instead of Mezgec)
Wrong OPQS(Stybar instead of Maes/Petacchi)

Other than that pretty happy with 80 pts considering I set up for stage 2 anyway.....Thor winning a day early!!

I'll probably make my changes for stage 2 now due to the start times and go Matthews and Wauters in for Viviani and Ferrari.
