Vuelta Stage 9

Wrong in stage 8. (not that it mattered scorewise). GCs weren't interested. When I first started playing this game, GCs took pride in trying to win a summit finish. Not anymore; all defensive riding. Individual brilliance has been squashed by the grinding tactics of Sky/Movistar/xxxx.

Second tier GCs Yates/Talansky/Scarponi are hovering tantalisingly outside top 10, and if a 10 to 20 rider break makes it to the finish everyday, there is not much point in carrying them.

Cheers
