I'll be signing up. I shouldn't do any worse than the TdF where for some reason I only spent 90/100 rider points.

I don't know why but I always make mine 100 even, not that it helps:lol:. Good luck to everyone.. and since college football is about to start too..."Tigerbait, Tigerbait"

Just joined. I got lucky with the Roche victory today, but something tells me I'm going to regret not having Nibali.

definitely. he just seems to be in the right place at the right time more often than not. kinda like cadel. rarely spectacular but seems like a quiet fighter/grinder.
never your flashy first choice but consistent.

Damn that Chris Horner is a cheap date.

slcbob 08-26-13 12:22 PM

Oh, just found that "never bet on Euskatel" note. Oh well, won't need it again after this race anyway. C'mon, Sammy. I'm hoping for some surprises because, not that I look at it again, I'm sort of surprised at who I wound up picking a few days ago.

Creatre 08-26-13 02:15 PM

Horner paid off today! Regretting Betancur and Arroyo so far though. I dropped Moreno for them....bah.

Creatre 08-27-13 11:45 AM

BAHHHHHHH really regretting ditching Moreno now!!

DXchulo 08-30-13 08:20 PM

Today was a good day for me. I have Stybar and Gilbert. My 6-8 point guys are doing well except for Gerrans. I still have hope that he'll go for a stage win later on, though.

My 10+ point guys might be a problem. Laurens ten Dam hasn't been able to repeat his TDF success, but I'm a fan of his and I don't regret picking him. He's only a little over a minute down, but I don't think the super steep stuff is going to suit him well. Meanwhile, Betancur is 52 minutes down. I was hoping for more from him.

Wish I had paid more attention to some of the 6-8 point guys but I gambled all my points on the podium positions and took 2 and 4 point guys to fill the team. Oh well, still hoping.

slcbob 08-31-13 09:25 AM

Well stick a fork in me, I'm done. See you all at the Giro. Heading back to the sag wagon now.

indomikey 09-02-13 10:01 PM

wow first time I've ever led. Horner pick was gold.

Creatre 09-06-13 09:41 AM

Looks like the podium is slowly cementing into where we are at. Not sure I'll be able to make progress on you guys in 1st and 2nd.

ooga-booga 09-07-13 03:42 AM

shelled early and doesn't look like i'll be able to ride myself back into contention. and i felt sooo good about this team. oh well.
bring on the 2014 giro!

DXchulo 09-07-13 05:53 PM

Damn...I was really hoping Roche would podium.

slcbob 09-15-13 02:47 AM

So my last minute thinking before I slapped the table on my team was: Horner will probably crash out by stage 3 because there's a turn there, and I've got 2 extra points, so I might as well pick Dan Martin -- he'll have a few good days and will get me some stage finishes here and there. Good thinking!

I had other issues, too.

Great to see the old man come through and have the ride of his life, even if he most strenuously clarifies that it is NOT the form of his life.

indomikey 09-15-13 08:31 AM

I've got the lead coming into the last stage. Creatre needed one more week and would have caught my team. Every mountain stage brought him closer and closer.

mdphoto 09-15-13 05:52 PM

Good race everyone. Nice to see an old guy take a win in Horner. Till the next race all.

Hills and Spills.

Creatre 09-17-13 10:12 AM

Phew pulled off 2nd because of ending GC bonuses! Man, I can't imagine my score had I kept Moreno...Still hitting myself for dropping him last second!!
