Well yesterday's race must have been very predictable as it produced the highest scores of any event so far. I contrived to get the top score of 180 - mainly from Gilbert, Kwiatkowski and Haas. For what it's worth I made the wrong decision and went for Valverde instead of GVA, but it only cost a few points.

Russell maintains his comfortable cushion, but the big loser on the day was Omer Ozden who has gone from 2nd to 11th. That's what happens when you don't leave yourself enough transfers.

  • Of course, if this turns out someday to be the industry standard integrated handlebar-computer-braking solution then I'll eat my kevlar-reinforced aerodynamic hat.

    Another predictable result brings the highest score from a cat 2 race this year. Yesterday's winner was Felipe Botero who had six of the top-seven riders (just missing Albasini).

    I'm going to say that Russell has the GC wrapped up, but who is going to finish on the podium with him?

    The four contenders (Lord di Lego has a very small chance too if the stars align) all have Valverde, Kwiatkowski, Henao and Martin. So we can forget about them. Bearing in mind this doesn't include any transfers, here's the team analysis:

    Arley Hidalgo (2nd) looks to have the weakest team. Gaspa making a miraculous recovery is his only hope I think of hanging onto a podium spot.

    Ozgur (3rd) and Stephen Tunstall (4th) are only 4 points apart and have very similar teams. It will come down to who does better between Wellens/Woods (Ozgur) and Haas/GVA (Stephen).

    Diogo (5th) is a bit further back, but could possibly snatch third if Wellens/Woods and his wildcard Uran do well while Albasini falters.

    All hail Russell! Lead the entire competition apart from after MSR and it was a convincing win by just over a hundred points. Quite a bit off the record score for the Classics game, but I think this reflects George tightening up on his rider costs more than anything else.



    Ozgur just held off JSG for the final stage win at LBL and that was enough to give him second in the overall. Arley managed to hold onto the final podium spot after all, my analysis above didn't factor in Matthews being a threat.
