    #9 AGR



    1000 points from one race! Some very similar teams out there, but Axel made the difference with his cheaper selections of Lambrecht and Madouas.



    MV's slide continues and it's instead Russell who leapfrogs Jempy. Russell is actually 4th overall for all entrants which is very impressive and has a significant cushion over second in our league, but then again he did enjoy a lead going into last year's final race and we all know how that ended....

     ;)

     Yup, my slide. I was going to post those exact words earlier.
    Can't see a way back, either, given the rather unorthodox AGR result and the respective rate of scoring!
    Inspired, as opposed to my :slow  :flustered :cheesy

     And the good news is that almost everybody went for the wonderfully successful, Martin/Yates combo. :fp :lol

    I mean, I knew Fuglsang would do well, but in that price range I could only afford two and I was sure Martin and Yates would do better :S :angry
    But at least most went for those two so it's not too big a deal

    We're always quick to accuse teams and riders of racing conservatively to preserve their 8th or whatever in GC. Who's gonna practice what they preach and go for the win in LBL?

     Well, at least I already know that I can't win.
    Why?
    Russell and I have picked identical teams. :lol

    Well a gambler did win on the day. Tom Baa bravely left out Alaphilippe and spread the budget about with Woods, Konrad and Formolo picking up good points.




    Congratulations to Russell. In addition to the overall, he also won the PR and BP stages. Archie made a late surge to jump from fifth to second and it was marmot who rounded out the podium.

    MV's claims of a Velogames curse are ringing a bit hollow......for the moment. ;)

    Out of interest who won the limited transfer version of the game? Screenshot of the top-ten?

     It's early days yet. Still plenty of time for the curse to return and I've been riding my luck.
    It was particularly strong in Romandie last year and I have to say this year's game is an absolute pig.
    No idea who is going for the GC and who is just riding for the kms. Plus even domestiques are costly; some as much as 12 points.  Roglic, at an eye watering 26 points, is just the icing on the Alp.
