Somehow I really suck at this game.

Although I don't think I do.

I've had 3 stage wins and aomewhere around 10 days in the maillot jaune (whatever Cancellara+Schleck adds up to). Plus I number 2 and 4 from GC.
Still I'm only in 75th place :(

Well I suppose if Fränk Schleck was still in there I'd be a lot higher.

Riders I should not have "signed"

- Oscar Freire (Is he even racing ?! I only saw him on the day of the World Cup Final because he had put red and yellow tape on his handlebars. Complete disappointment)

- John Gadret (After a strong Giro I thought he might get a stage win or place in Top 15 but all he seems to do is p*ss of Nicolas Roche with pointless moves)

- Jacob Fuglsang (Did in no way live up to the expectations that his team put in him, I thought he might be a future GC contender but there's still a long long way to go for that apparently)

- Marcus Burghardt (After Tour de Suisse and based on his previous Tour performances I thought he might be in some good breakaways, but again: barely seen him except pulling for Cadel when he was in yellow)

Now I guess all I can hope for is a good placing of Menchov and Schleck on Tourmalet and a good placing of Fabian in the final TT (although he's been looking pretty bad for a week).

Ha Well Done :)

Just edged out ACF, and Bro, you really slipped down in the last week!

I died big time. Mr. Toad's wild ride across the cobbles featuring Frank Schleck killed me. To make matters worse, I had Mick Rogers, also known as the Australian Tommy D., who did nothing. Brajkovic sucked along with the rest of the Radio Shack team, excepting Horner.

The rider cost were completely screwed up for this game.
 
So glad I picked Rojas and Van den Broeck. Funny that the first scored about as many points as the latter, but I guess being 4th and 5th in a bunch of stages without a chance in hell of winning them amounts to a better Tour than a 5th overall.

Most people beat ACF.. ;)

Happy to come position 4 but yes Jaylew looked like he had it sown up a couple of days back. I made a blunder in not picking Van den Broeke but i'm proud of my team..

Can you still log in? Being the super user you are? :D

How about posting the final results for those of us that were off site and didn't get a chance to see it before it went down?
