So again it will be done as a purist game if people want to join in and submit teams

Haha! I didn't even look at the profiles, but according to Cycling News there's a 145k time trial on the last stage... Hopefully blind luck will kick in and I'll do ok, figured with Euskatel being based in the Basque Country the route would be pretty hilly  4

EDIT: Dissapointingly it's only an 18.9km ITT, not 145km  2 That would have been a laugh, a four hour long TT would really shake things up.

I think it is pretty hilly, and Livestrongnick I know theres is wrong, been using the one on the offical site and cycling fever which are both correct.

That would have been interesting!

Rojas takes the bunch sprint from Poels and Wegmann, followed by Ratto, Vichot, Hesjedal, Meersman, Izagirre. Luke Rowe around 12th I think.

Yep Luke Rowe 12th, gutted with team selection, if i had kept moreno rather than change to hoogerland, i would have had vichot  2

As with the Volta a Catalunya, no young rider category, however we have separate sprints category/points and a separate points category/points

Not that it affects me but, in the official site's website, it shows Martin Velits 14th not Peter (If you scored Peter instead of Martin)

Thanks TER - very bad for me today, as usual the not-quite-as-hilly-as-I-thought stages are my downfall - BUT I do have Peter Velits as well as Sammy Sanchez so I should have slightly more I think...
Cheers, Chris

No i scored Martin (well no-one had him) but cheers anyway Bubby

It was Martin Velits that scored im afraid Chris (and just 4 for sanchez which quite a few people got), i almost gave you the points. Still time for big changes yet

I have probably counted this wrong, but . . .
Galdos = 2
Sanchez = 4
Gorka = 14 + 3
2 MOV riders = 10 (kiryienka and Inxausti)
Total 33 ???
