2 players picked Ventoso. Unlucky for those three who picked Petacchi. :p

Updated Standings:
2 Boomcie
2 Aarnold
2 User Guide
2 Mortand

(21 players with one point)

The provisionals, i´ll uptate after Stage 7.

I honestly don't know why no one else picked him. Ferminal and TLR already explained themselves though :)

Me too. I wasn´t thinking of sprinters for this stage and have 3 big loosers in my Top-20. I am already struggling after just 6 stages.OMG.

Freakin Jrod better win tomorrow :mad:

I empathise, however I would prefer Nibali ftw (but if he cannot then maybe JRod might). Being stuck on zero is a bummer...and some of my GC are in the doldrums (my fault...lack of ability in the Team manager).

Anyway here's to an action packed stage!

I am guessing a score of 20 will qualify through to TdF. Given I made a poor choice on 5 GC selections I better luck out on some stage winners and get some GC placings correct.

I doubt I'll make the cut :(
I am struggling. Worse, I have cav tomorrow. I clearly didn't look at the profile, because I doubt he will make it over that climb, and if he does, I expect he'll lsoe a position or two.. blahh... Menchov I have on etna wont come true either :(

Because of "the List"? Then we all would have the same problem.

I also have Cav tomorrow, but look worse than you now. At least i am in the cut for now. :)

Yeah... Cav. tomorrow is quite unlikely. Didn't see the final kms detail.

Ah well, this game isn't the most important. Cool stages like todays close finish make the Giro worth watching.
