Quite fitting with a close finish to mirror the real race..;) ..Kangert could have made the difference but you're always likely to lose at least one guy along the way.

Top ten in my first GT CQ game. Gotta be pleased with that. Hadn't Kruijswijk abandoned it would've been even better, but as Crevaison says, there's always some bad luck to be factored in. At least my strategy proved successful.

Thank you for doing this game and adding to the enjoyment of the Giro, Armchair Cyclist!

Some number crunching:

Best scoring riders:
(at least a stage win worth of points)

The overwhelming favourite to win was simply deemed too expensive by nearly everyone, and the one who did win was several hundred points dearer than riders who most pundits thought had a better chance.
Pinot finished behind Nibali, but gets the podium of point earners through better stage placings. Gaviria and Landa (on plan B) are the main riders whose place points are more important than GC.

Best Possible team
My record for doing this accurately is not good, and if there is a way of getting Excel to work it out definitively I don't know it, so the best I can come up with is:

DUMOULIN Tom
GAVIRIA RENDON Fernando
LANDA MEANA Mikel
POLANC Jan
PÖSTLBERGER Lukas
FRAILE MATARRANZ Omar
DE PLUS Laurens
PETILLI Simone
PLAZA MOLINA Ruben

for a total of 2248 (and a popularity score that would have been the second lowest)

Not really related to this game, but for the last few GTs I have set up a ninja thread: highest placed rider with no daily top ten placing: it was Hubert Dupont in 19th place.

Small improvements to the Best Possible Team:

Landa
Polanc
Postlberger
Fraile
Rolland
Dumoulin
Zakarin
Cataldo
Kozontchuk

This team would have scored 2322 points. A special mention goes to Postlberger who was also part of the best possible spring classics team.
