Love the fact that I have Kwia in Velogames biggrin.gif

Never just put a team up and then forget about it entirely. Lesson learned rolleyes.gif

Just playing around going for stage wins in the practice phase. Won't mean anything in the race phase.

I was wondering how you got Kwiatkowski in Velogames. That's too bad. sad.gif

I think those roundabouts and other traffic islands on the flat stages make it as hazardous as the mountains sometimes. biggrin.gif

Yeah, my bad for entering June 20th. Just stupid.

I'm always in awe of how they manage to navigate these traffic islands with 60km/h during the last stages of the race. Scary stuff. Did you know the call the small signs 'holidays' in the peloton?

Final NBC team in.

Wide open field, all 198 riders still alive. No one did us any favors by getting injured although Contador tried hard.

We will see who lasts just one more stage. laugh.gif

Even with the cheaper prices I still have too much dead wood in my team.

I'm struggling to sort out my sprinters in my main team.


In a couple of days I'll do my usual spreadsheet showing everyone's teams, for comparison.

Was very tough. My final choice in the end was picking Quintana and a cheapie over two more medium-priced GC chancers (Kelderman and Rodriguez). thinking.gif

The only riders we all picked are Froome and Sagan.

Good to see some different strategies at play. BRFC with more top sprinters, broadview goes without Quintana.

Not thrilled with the lack of depth on my team. A couple of early withdrawals and I could be screwed.

Good luck everyone...except sallan. smile.gif

PTC sprint team #12 for today's stage! Great work, the only team to select Cavendish, so I guess you deserve it. biggrin.gif

Meh. One day I'll win that bell or a hat or something.


Really looking forward to the next few days. I love the mountain stages. smile.gif

If by 'fun' you mean the inflatable banner collapsing, then I agree. biggrin.gif

Ridiculous. Still, at least it wasn't a bus this time.

I still prefer it over Champions league's plastic perfection. Love cycling, precisely because of the chaos and impossibility to orchestrate everything.

It's just another reminder why I can never take fantasy sports seriously, and why I don't bet on sports.

All this talk of extra police for the Tour's safety, but no one thought to consider the rogue balloon deflator taking out the riders. laugh.gif

Anyway, fantastic ride from Cummings today, and extra fantastic from Van Avermaet. He won't be in yellow after tomorrow, though.

Wish I could see it. NBC won't have their primetime coverage some evenings including tonight and tomorrow. angry.gif
