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.

Chaves still annoys me.

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

No Caleb Ewan? huh.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

I was home early today and a site had live coverage of the race in Argentina (I forget the name) with Quintana, Nibali and others.

It would probably have been interesting viewing if the coverage wasn't, quite simply, the worst coverage of a bike race I've ever seen. One camera on a helicopter, one at the finish...and a lot of random commercials and route maps. Just weird. laugh.gif

Nothing beats Phil Liggett's race coverage. Hope he never retires.

Porte wins stage 5 and trails Gerrans by only 9 seconds going into the final stage tonight. Barring another Gerrans crash, I think he has it locked up.

How did you end up, broady?

Would have been better with Ewan, right? biggrin.gif


Did you see that Nairo Quintana has a baby brother who is also a cyclist. And he's good, too!

I did pretty terrible, as though I just slapped a team together at the last minute. biggrin.gif

Yes, my team would have done much better with Ewan who obviously wasn't on my radar. Though I should have taken Diego Ulissi, who was on my radar. A lot of Aussies did well, as was to be expected, I just didn't some of the right ones.

I'm in.

We share Van Garderen, Cavendish, Sagan, Poels.
My others are Gaviria, Cancellara, Tony Martin, Falls, Kiriyenka.

I barely looked at the profile of the stages, saw the word TT, so went with a couple of ITT specialists.

I doubt I'll even be able to watch it, so not sure what the point was in me bothering. biggrin.gif

Still trying to mess around with the team a little, but the site won't let me atm. If get on, this won't be the final team I guess. Looking at Valls, Chaves and Pozzovivo actually. Hope there's a way to get at least one of 'em in.

It's good prep for the tour for me. I'm not going to watch, but I'll try and read up on some of the stages which should prepare me a little better for this year's tour biggrin.gif

I guess with there being only one mountain stage that's where the race will be won or lost.

Been reading about Cavendish and his quest for the Olympics, coupled with his desire to do the TDF.

I think he's going to choose France over Rio. I can't see him doing both unless he leaves the tour way before Paris.
