Tour de France 23

I have opened the comp; there will be lots of rider changes I assume, but it will give you something to waste next week thinking about.

If you're new please join in and if you have questions pop them below and the forum regulars will answer as best we can.

It's really hard to know what to do for the upcoming sprints.  Some of the more expensive GC riders will score OK anyway, but if you don't drop them, you have to go without key sprinters.  I always find it tough when this happens.

Especially when there is a mountain stage thrown in the middle of the sprints! I notice that the leader in the TdF standard has gone five stages without a transfer and is comfortably in the lead. Must take nerves of steel not to tinker with the team for that long!

What a Tour that has been so far. I think I need the rest day as much as the riders! I hope the time trial doesn't upset the delicately balanced GC fight, it deserves to be decided 'mano a mano' on stage 17 or, even better, stage 20. Being the TdF it never follows the script though, and that's what makes it the drama it is.

Agree 11Waterloo, some of the stages have been mad. Pog & Vin seem to be joined at the hip and the better excitement is the other podium spot or KOM jersey. I hope it all goes in line with my proposed transfers from here !!!!!smileysmiley

I am just enquiring for the points Michael Woods got yesterday 41 pts. I thought for winning the stage and the HC climb it would be more than that but I probably have it wrong.

What a fantastic stage that was to cap off a brilliant first week! Now they have sorted the infrastructure out, the Puy de Dôme should be a regular TdF climb again. It's like a condensed Mont Ventoux with nowhere to hide.

The scoring process itself (I don't mean when it is done) seems to have slowed down dramatically. I think this is because the stage results email is sent early in the process, and everyone jumps on road.cc to check scores etc, to the extent that the server shuts down. I have asked Dave if it is possible to delay the email. In the meantime, if you could wait say, 15 mins after email to log on to road.cc, that would allow process to finish quicker. Thanks.

9 points from the Intermediate sprint. To quote from the "how to play" tab, section "scoring information",    "If a rider starts a stage or a single day race then any points they score for that stage will count, even if they abandon the stage. That includes team bonus points."

I'm sure someone in HQ will get their fingers out, but the biggest race of the year, a fantastic first stage result for the Yates twins and yet nothing from HQ with regards to the scores for yesterday. I appreciate that sometimes there are server glitches but Tony's thought that someone will probably get the scores done before stage 2 starts seems a little lame from the normally excellent team. Maybe they were celebrating too hard after the British win?

Hi All,

Anyone know when the scores / points for riders will be posted for Stage One of the Tour?  

The hopes and dreams of many fantasy cyclists rest on this info

Regards,

 

Nick

Sorry Nick, I've gone bush for a few days (I'm normally plan C for scoring Down Under), and haven't got good internet/facilities. I presume TER or Andy will score before next stage.

Is there any way we can give TER or Andy a nudge? Only 90 minutes before Stage 2 selection ends so it would be great to have the scores soon.

I was working last night from just after the stage finish until the small hours of the morning. Life just gets in the way sometimes, apologies.

All good. I should be more organised myself.

In the end it worked out well with who I already had in my team, and I've saved some transfers!!  1
