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  105

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.
