Grand Tour Elimination Game ( 2010s )

Page 34 - Get up to date with the latest news, scores & standings from the Cycling News Community.
49 - 2010 Giro
39 - 2015 Giro
18 - 2016 Giro
11 - 2019 Vuelta
05 - 2018 Giro
02 - 2011 Giro

Also, let's say, when/if there are only 2010 and 2015 Giro are left ( as they lead the rest by a mile ) , I think we should deduct 20 points from both races to make it faster.

As I said Mid Ohio is almost like a huge "back yard" the way they take care of it. Unfortunately I may have issues with Paris-Roubaix as well.
You should definitely choose the right pave sectors

** much more dangerous
*** exceedingly dangerous
**** ankle twist inevitable
Not really. Maths will see to that.
Maths can be full of surprises

EDIT: I had forgotten to submit my vote with this post
Heal: 2015 Giro
Hurt: 2010 Giro

Thankfully I have a friend who has offered to by my host/guide if I can ever get over there for Paris-Roubiax. Although I think I have to make sure I have time to be there for Flanders as well.

I suspect that might be correct for the stars, maybe just go to the velodrome. LOL

In principle it's good idea, but ...

With:
  • current numbers of points of Giro 2010 and Giro 2015;
  • only one more member voting for the latter;
Giro 2015 needs four days to overtake Giro 2010 (and the total number of voting member in 1 day shouldn't be more than ca. 17 - so currently there is no such threat).

But if you deduct 20 points from both races, with the same assumptions, Giro 2015 will not have enough time to catch Giro 2010 - on the second day will reach 0 points.

My idea: if we have 2 GT left we should wait a few days to check if (and how fast) the distance between 1st nad 2nd GT is decreasing.

Probably not a bad idea but I think it will go fairly quick anyway. I looks close right now but I doubt there are actually many people thinking 2015 was better than 2010.

Velodrome sounds better lol, but only outside at the entrance. Tribunes are sloping.
And no Murs in Flanders. ****
