Inxausti wasn't riding at all, there was 8 MS riders finished, so he wasn't in their team to start with

Just a thought, can you create another thread TER, kept ONLY for stage result list and scores, keep this thread for the chat, the one day races were getting 100+ comments, so over a 6 day race its going to get hectic in here

Mmmm, should have put in Rojas for the flatter stages. 46 not bad given I'm going more for the uphill finishes.

Damn I just found out De La Fuente went on a massive break and I was going to have him in my team but I couldn't find his points so I chose a different Caja Rural rider  20 20 20

Just checked again and he's not on the list but I had him last year in the Vuelta I'm sure.

It's funny how people mention people not in their team and the rider they were talking about gets big points. Nickobec said in an earlier post something about De la Fuente and he goes and scores him points in a breakaway. I have done something like that in the Paris-Nice prologue where TER said he had an ace. I scanned through the riders and found a certain sweedish rider by the name of Larsson and asked if his "ace" was of this nationality. He replied no but Larsson went on to win and gain big points.

To be fair Alan did want de la fuente, but he is not in the database (for some reason) so we dont have a price for him

Having said all that the 3 big points scorers in my team for the stage yesterday are 3 of the 5 riders i hadn't change from when i drew up my original team. But at some point had another who scored big, just decided not to pick him in the end. Was just saying its frustrating when you do that

Yeh my ace bombed at paris nice if i remember correctly.

Not great for me today, only two riders in the top 20  20

Results are up

Brajkovic and Pineau got me some climb points with the later also getting some sprint points, was he in a break?

Well another Caja Rural rider went on a break but not my one yet. At least I get 5 points for Albasini, not much else I think, but I hope to do better on the next 2 stages. I suppose this is what happens when you knock up a team in 10 mins!

And I really, really would've picked De la Fuente, think he was about 3 last time so I had plenty of points. You can always bet that one rider from these smaller teams will go on a break and so it has proved so far.

I banked on Sanchez being in a break just like he was during the last one and it paid off  4

Unfortunately I didn't check out the profiles in advance so I've got a very climby team, fingers crossed for the next few days.

I've done the points but gonna check them again when I get home from badminton

Brako wasn't in the break, think he just got you 2 mounntain points, pineau only scored 8 points as well despite being in the break. Pinot and anchez racked up 22 and 25 so took all the points

Ter?
How are we scoring this Tour?
Is there points for the overall Sprints, Mountains and Points?
I'm asking cause i can't figure which rider i scored my enormous score of 1 with?  7
I've Poels 5th in points and Kiverlovski 5th in sprints?
I'm assuming its Poels, but seeing as there is no Young rider are we not having sprint points too?  4

Hope you can shed some light and maybe i might double my stage score!  4

poels 5th in points? i need to check that then as i haven't scored anyone points for poels

Kiserlovski is where your point came from

Yes we are scoring sprints separately from points, so overall for sprints, points and mountains

Right ok, seems it may have been wrong when i first did the points. Everyone with Gavazzi will loose a point, and everyone with poels will gain a point

Cheers for that Livestrongnick

Only 1 rider in that top 20  20

Seems my gambles of getting points early and hanging on aint worked either

My only bonus is that a Euski rider won and that Rojas still has the points lead  20
