I don't do velogames anymore, I'm convinced it jinxes the riders I picked :fp, last year in the tour Alberto was nothing, nothing I tell ya, and finishing in the last three in the tour mini league, with only nibs scoring decent points, well flip I'm not doing it again

    Its just luck flo. a question of probabilities. You play enough fantasy games, you are bound to win 1. I mean i wont deny that you have a slightly better chance the more you know, and that moments of tactical brilliance can often be the difference between winning and losing, but mostly, its just luck  ;)

  • Despite the self-serving data benders and associated propaganda to the contrary, I am led to believe that there are pockets of organised, highly sophisticated dopers, even within 'new age' cycling teams. Personally, I don't accept that the 'dark era' has ended, it has just morphed into a new guise.

    I wish. Your other climber is Froome. My is Mollema. And you've got Viviani too, Swifty's not doing as well.
    I wish I had your team!  ;D

    I ain't complaining - actually doing quite well. Sitting comfortably on the wheel of Tuart and his GreenHEDGE guys, just waiting to strike. Or waiting for Degenkolb, Purito and Froome to strike even further, that is.

    And 24 hours later you're top of the pile already. Nice balanced team for sure.

    3rd at the moment, the key being all 3 of Contador, Froome and Purito, backed by Viviani and Meersman and Henao, but cant see it getting any better unless Henao gets some freedom or Kessiakoff pulls up his socks..
