Awesome performance, and I am sure you will just climb higher. At a week into the race we were neck and neck, but now my rank is in the 6000's. I was never looking at Rodriguez or Aru seriously as you had. But I did look seriously at Landa and Dumoulin, wish I would have kept them.

Looking forward to the rest day tomorrow. biggrin.gif

I can't help myself, but...Chaves is the difference between me and the top 20 or 30. rolleyes.gif Losing Froome so early also cost me a lot.

I'm enjoying the ride. I don't tend to have much fantasy success. biggrin.gif

Dumoulin with the stage win, but I don't think it's enough to shake off Aru for the win in Madrid. Still some climbing to be done, and Dumoulin will surely get attacked.

He's been countering those attacks remarkably well so far, but I too predict that he won't cope when they go all out to win it. Hell of a ride to be in it with a chance though thumbsup.gif thumbsup.gif thumbsup.gif

Amazing performance. I only picked him cos I thought he'd do well in the ITT. biggrin.gif

Comparisons with Indurain have been mentioned. That's quite the compliment.

Or the kiss of death. Depending on who pays the compliment. biggrin.gif

Yes, moved from the 6000's to the 5000's. rolleyes.gif

Chaves still annoys me.

Looks like Doom is doomed. I'll miss the end of the stage, but the writing is on the wall.

308th. I'll take it. smile.gif

Interestingly, despite all our moaning, only 1 of the top 10 teams had Chaves. biggrin.gif

Froome says he likes the course.

Now we just wait 9 months...

Fantasy Cycling starts early in 2016! I entered a team for Fantasy Tour Down Under. A mix of familiar faces and some new ones. Not sure how I will be able to catch any TV coverage, will need to rely on news reports.

Simon Gerrans - Orica Greenedge

Tiago Machado - Team Katusha

Nathan Haas - Team Dimension Data for Qhubeka

JJ Rojas - Movistar Team

Ryder Hesjedal - Trek-Segafredo

Wouter Wippert - Cannondale Pro Cycling Team

Oscar Gatto - Tinkoff

Michael Albasini - Orica Greenedge

Peter Kennaugh - Team Sky

Here's a good stream.

No idea if this same site will show all the stages. Do your own checking. biggrin.gif

I don't know Ewan, and I already had 2 Orica Greenedge cyclists - Gerrans and Albasini.

In my mind the critical decision was Gerrans vs Porte. Can't afford both without going into the cheap end of the cyclist for most of the rest of the roster. Hopefully I made the right choice, otherwise it will be a long week. biggrin.gif

You don't know Ewan?

Did you do any research? biggrin.gif
