Well, if the race is anything like last year there may be very (!) few DSs that score in the top 20 (!). Ben Hermans is the only current DS I can see that scored any significant points last year. He came in 7th. Bram Tankink came in 19th and Fabian Wegmann 20th.

Wow, that was quick, checked Gaparotto's Wikipedia page and already the result up. By the way, if any of us had seen the result he had in 2010, those of us who take chances, might of had him. 3rd, and I believe it was his first time racing this race.

He was considered but I went with Martens at a similar price as had top 20's at all of the ardennes last year, and regularly has done at Amstel

Mollema 10th? At least I'll get something then - not looking encouraging otherwise. This was very difficult to call.

Unless I'm missing something, I think I've scored ONE POINT today. Quality result.

1 point for Gerrans 20th plus 10 points for Kiserlovski and Ponzi for being team mates with Gasparotto. Means 11 points in total.  31

Self-appointed favorites like Valverde, Rodriguez and Cunego were so bad. Shame that I put my money on them.

I scored zero.

Don't know whether to laugh or cry.

Mind you, proves what I said in the preview - it's a very difficult race to predict  3

I had considered both Voeckler and Freire. Those are the only 2 that "might have been" in my team.

31 points... but considering I had Vanendert, Wegmann & Nocentini in my team at various points before today, it feels much worse.  2

Sagan, Moreno and Rojas were my star guys i left out, Glad i stuck with Gilbert though

Vanendert, Iglinsky and Devenyns are also names on my list of 26 riders i picked from

At least Gilbert and Mollema grabbed me some points, seems i might move up if others 0's and 1's are anything to go by  3

Just Wegmann and Gerrans for me  2
took Vanendert out for cunego being the only change i made recently, so that one is frustrating. Especially considering Cunego looked like he would have top 10....@ arsene, youve got say Cunego was unlucky, on the shot it looked like got took out from behind, and as said looked good to at least top 10

Problem is going forward with the team I have  39

Puts me 14 points closer in the Classics comp then  3

However I think I will have suffered a heavy fall from 12th when Dave has done the points  20

A whopping 6 points. 5 for Kiserlovski being in the same team as Gasparatto, 1 for Gerrans. Should have stuck with Sagan.

That's my lowest ever score! By a long way. Very difficult race to predict for sure. At least I have a nice bottle of Albariño and roast chicken for supper to console myself with.

Looks like disappointing results all round today.

I wonder how many people who signed up and picked a team at the start of the Tour Down Under and havnt logged on again since then will have scored more today than those of us in this thread who spent the last week researching riders and painstakingly building a team.

Not sure - he may be in shock at having scored zero too, from what I gather.

I very rarely put 2 riders in from the same team, so dont play the teammate scoring bonus tactic at all

I have two stars who are not racing in the week, and a DS too, but I have my transfers and team planned based around that

Better hope there aren't too many crashes then! I'm playing safe and just got one star not riding midweek.

Well seems ive messed up, Nordhaug crashing out (didnt look like he will race wednesday) has now messed up my planned transfers!! argh back to the drawing board. and now dont have enough transfers to axe all those that were pants!
