DePLus and five sprinters for China. I guess it will be worth watching to see if i can crack the top 30.
And in early February:Having finalised my team relatively quickly this year, I had originally settled for Matteo Trentin as my most expensive pick at 581. I really liked the look of my rather equally priced team. But then a few days ago I realised that Richie Porte could quite realistically have 500 points before the end of February and that it would be stupid not to have him. So I begrudgingly changed Trentin and Keukeleire (who I wasn't crazy about anyway) for Porte.
So, 711 points from Porte & Brøchner vs 1915 and still counting from Trentin & Keukeleire. The difference between 56th place, where I'm currently at, and 19th place.I'll be livid if he scores less than Trentin+Keukeleire, who I took out to fit Porte in. The only thing worse than cheering for a rider I don't like, is cheering for a rider I don't like who does poorly for my team.
Are you sure about that? Guangxi doesn't finish before Tuesday, so there will be two more significant updates.After next week it's not technically over, but for all intents and purposes the final standings will be set. I hope everyone has had a fun year, let's see how the rest of it goes!
I don't know what I ever did to offend the CQ gods the last couple of weeks. Now even Gaviria is hurting meI haven't been that interested in a Chinese race since the Olympic road race 2008.
Edit: Actually i must have been quite interested in the 2017 edition of the Tour of Guangxi as well, even if i hardly remember it.
Stage 1 went quite well for me as i lost only 4 points to karaev. And the best part is that Kämna lost 19 seconds already.
Apparently he had muscular problems earlier in the season because of his seating position on the bike.Yeah, I echo everyone who says that it's been great following the main competitor's battle in this thread. Keep it up. Very close ending to the season. I myself am 10th now - that's a nice surprise for me. And Max Kanter decided to check in as well, scoring his first 2 points of the season - he's now at that elusive 1% return barrier. Does anyone know what has been up with him this year?
I also have Kuss and Eg in the Japan CupACT 3: The podium battle
The forces of Hakkie and Tigerion take the field for the final battle. Most of their troops are exhausted and have no strength left to challenge so it will come down to their final remaining champions. A number of them are evenly matched so will have no bearing on the outcome so the 2 commanders address the remaining warriors.
For Tigerion we have
WANG Mei Yin
For Hakkie we have
DE PLUS Laurens
It's a 4 v 5 slugfest upon the battlefield that will forever be know as Tour of Guangxi
I need to depend upon Ed Theuns to cover them for meI also have Kuss and Eg in the Japan Cup
(and if I win Euromillions this weekend, I'll invest some of the money in the Bardiani team so they participate in Tour of Fuzhou with Albanese.)
I know it is almost ridiculous.I haven't been that interested in a Chinese race since the Olympic road race 2008.
