How do you LOSE green jersey points?
Ok. So I was looking at http://www.letour.fr/2005/TDF/LIVE/u...ement/IPG.html which contains the points classification standings through stage 12. The bottom half-dozen or so riders actually have negative points! How did they manage that?
I looked through all the daily points-related results, and I didn't see any reference on there to people losing points.
Dude wheres my guads?
fines/ docking points for illegal team car pulls or somethin??... I sure know some people got docked recently..
