Tour of Beijing Stage 3

by Gkam84   October 13, 2013  

I wasn't going to do stage 3 comm's, but I'm up watching Bathurst 1000 and then onto F1 and Moto GP, then Cycling....

So to start you off, bad news if you have Hushovd in your team. He's gone home for a family emergency, his daughter have been hospitalised with an illness.

As far as I'm aware, he's the only non-starter today

Scant joy for me so far today. Hope its does come down to a bunch; left in Bouhanni and Mezgec from yesterday just in case (seems to me this is actually a MM stage with a just-about-cat-one lumped in there as well).

However, my other picks of Gavazzi, De Gendt, Beyer, Gusev and D. Martin haven't done owt and don't look likely to.

A little bit of a problem in China, it seems around 37 riders have gone missing.....not actually missing, just no-one can find their times if they have finished Rolling On The Floor

Updating the scores now, these are provisional and might change a touch. Most of it is set, except last man home, because of the missing riders.

I just totted up, I lost 90 points by making transfers Crying

Gutted would be an understatement. I dropped 29 places to 52nd, If I had made no changes, I would be sitting 5th.....

My only hope at the top 10 badge now is getting a good score on Paris - Tours and moving up from 14th D Oh

Wow that is impressive! makes me feel better with my 4 points.......

Silver lining though it does rather help my purist team, which I filled with sprint type guys and seems to be going very well Smile
