Big block of stage-racing coming up. Even if they all pick the same GC guy, stages will make a difference.

I'd be happy with 19th overall at this stage in the season. :!:

I think the Giro will favour the brave for stage picks at least.

I've finally started moving up. My tactic this year was to build up slowly and lull everyone into a false sense of security before destroying everybody in the grand tours....watch out!

Mind games? What mind games?

You'd be a fool not to pick Wiggo for the Giro GC after his Romandie performance :wink:

Forget the Tours - my rear-guard action is going to start with all guns blazing at the Vattenfall Classic.
Big dog style.

But this is where it starts to get difficult. A week of sprints and TTs was never going to be all that unpredictable.

Giro over. Mad_Malk walked off with the pink jersey, but in the overall standings Art Vandelay keeps hold of his lead. Rick closes the gap a little, though, and is now just 24 points behind.

I thought I had a sh!te Giro. always picking the wrong person on the wrong day, but I'm up to fourth.

The missus won't care when I tell her later though, and the kid's not old enough to understand

The spread is prety narrow for a GT.

Ignoring mad max who smashed the Giro like he was Contador (and he's nowhere near in the season-long competition) the top 40 are spread by just 50 points, or a classics win. I gained that much over a fair few competitors with my Scheldeprijs pick.

From 3-48th is also just 50 points.

God knows how i held 19th - woefully, kept changing picks at the last moment - like was set on Pinotti for ages for today, but switched to Phinney at the last moment...

Ah well, live to fight another day - top 10 is the aim this season I think.

Bah, poor show so far for me. Some poor shows in the classics. Seems My picks but GTs are better but I've always found them relatively easy to predict. AFX, is there a way to work out points scored in and outside of stage races, or like a mark out of 100% ? Would be interesting to see where people pick best.

My missus doesn't care either and my daughter's view of my triumph was still 'sad'
