I fear Zulko may have other insights. Dude has been on a run. I need to find that voodoo doll. The good one.
please do but conveniently lose it for the last week of the giro and entire vuelta-for now. check is in the mail...

I fear you may be right.

In our tight SuperClassico battle, I left MVDP in and passed on Juju because I didn't have enough transfers to make them both work with the budget.

Costly mistake here. I see now I did not swap out Bennett for Mads as planned. Ouch. Too late to change. I find myself rooting for an extraordinary and unlikely cast of characters from a breakaway. I'm going to get slaughtered.

The moto was just a piece of road furniture that Alaphilippe happened to catch being at the back of the three-man breakaway. Bad luck.

^ Don't get me wrong, I'm not blaming the moto. So, yeah, I partially agree.

However, riders don't draft off road furniture and road furniture doesn't slow. The way WVA and MVDP moved past the moto with a swerve out of the draft was different than how they'd pass road furniture. JA is notorious for those glancing passes.

Odd that MVDP also seemed to jerk it, too. He just had a moment's less inattention than JA.

Zulko delivered a spirit-crushing stage win in classics squad. Yikes.

More on the moto... https://www.cyclingweekly.com/news/r...s-crash-473090

Cliff notes -- probably shouldn't have been there.

I made my picks. Or, in Classics Squadville, should I say pick since I was down to only one transfer.

It was a hard fought season made less hard by my moment of inattention in Flanders. At least I didn't run into a moto.

I think another obvious win for Ewan and I don't believe there are enough points left on the cutting room floor to hoover up what it will take to catch Zizi Pro. An early chapeau, Zulko. ooga-booga, always a pleasure.

Not sure I'll rise above last in Superclassico, since I gave y'all a bit of a headstart. I'm not counting the noob who torpedoed us all in the last day or two and took last. Honestly, I should similarly be not counted.

I'm pretty damn jazzed that I seem to have finally got the best (worst?) of GrainBrain in la Vuelta. Honestly, I picked to win. Ain't gonna happen. What a topsy-turvy Stage 1!

Congratulations to Trollstigen in Superclassico land

yeah, Trollstigen slayed it in superclassico in consistent and convincing fashion.

Zizi just beat out X Merckx The Spot in fantasy classics squad.

Trollstigen killed it in the last race-ag driedaagse bdp in superclassico
X Merckx The Spot had quite the ag driedaagse bdp day in fantasy classics squad.

thanks to all that played, saluted and won, crashed and burned or just rode a hard tempo and sheltered others from the wind.
