  • 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.

    The absence of anyone decent under 10 points makes this rather difficult. Finding it hard to find a team I'm happy with.

     It's like the UK will be after Brexit with rampantly inflated prices. ;)
    Not only the fact there is no one half decent under 10 points, but that so many half decent riders are 14 points or more.
    Rock hard game. :S

    My lack of confidence was well founded, but losing Matthews is just bad luck.

    Jungle Bob my only GC contender to make the front group. :fp

     Welcome to my world. I call it the kiss of death.
    I pick 'em and they tend to fall off. Or else I pick the right riders, but for the wrong race.  :lol
    Somehow, this time I managed to miss Sam Bennett, when looking for 10 point sprinters. :fp

    Nice one Flo! A successful navigation of a very tricky edition of PN and with a significant gap back to second and third.

    Calling it tricky is probably an understatement. A lot of rider's (and Velogame manager's) hopes disappeared with all the echelon action and even some of those who came through it relatively unscathed and finished high up in the GC (Bardet and Quintana) didn't score many points due to successful breaks on the final days.

    Kwiatkowksi (with all his bonus points), Bernal and Lulu would have been excellent picks. Flo had two of those and a significant contribution from a quartet of fast men.

    Current top-ten:

    Rank Manager Points
    1Lord Di Lego12
    2Florecita10
    2Luciano10
    4Raffaele Filippetti9
    4Sammy Suplesse9
    6JSG8
    6Rossi8
    8Miguel7
    9Albert Secall6
    9Carl Sibley6

    Only our new leader Lord Di Lego and Raffaele managed to score in both this and the TDU.

    Spring Classics should be starting this week.

    Looking at the profiles I quickly decided I wanted 4 sprinters, 2 GC men and 3 stage hunters with an option for GC. It was a risky decision that could have gone poorly because of the echelons and crashes in the first few stages but I guess I was lucky. :)
