Rujano is back, LeMevel, Gadret were good picks. Wish i had Dupont instead of Ardila (it was a close, but wrong decision back then). The guy who has Deignan may also like to have Dupont instead ;)

Now you´ve got to keep it.... Anyway i think you are on the safe side already. I am struggling in a tight race for the 16th spot. Hope Rujano makes it back into the Top-20.

Yes Eric, we both have a big struggle in front of us. I am juuussstttt in for now, you need "to find" 3 points to be on the safe side.

I bet the Top-6 in the provisionals already have made it after half of the Giro. The going gets tough already for the other 27.

P.S.:

Congrats Timmy you have the laterne rouge for now... ;)

:D

Oh man, this is the other game (after CQ, where I have failed) i really want to succeed at.

My only hope is that the riders I have in the top 20 come the place I actually predicted. I guess there are still many stages left also.

:(

-----

In terms of stages left....
10. Pettachi
11. Scarponi
12. Cavendish

13. Purito (J.Rodriguez)
14. Contador
15. Scarponi
16. Rujano
17. Nibali

18. Kreuziger
19. Anton
20. Contador
21. Contador


Bolded ones I think could come true..
----
As far as top 20...
1. Contador
2. Menchov
3. Scarponi
4. Anton

5. Purito (J. Rodriguez)
6. Nibali
7. Rujano
8. Pozzivivo
9. Machado
10. Kreuziger
11. Sella
12. Arroyyo

13. Sastre
14. Le Mevel
15. Lovkist
16. Pinotti
17. Kruijswijk
18. Duarte
19. Seeldrayers
20. Ulissi

Bolded one I am very confident of making the 20
Guys I think might make the 20
red = no chance / withdrawn

And machado, who I thought could make the 20. But I'm really doubting it now.

as for correct placing... at this point only AC fills me with confidence.

I hope to still get 3-5 stages wins..
And would like to have 15 in the top 20. With a few correct placing. Optimistically hoping for 20-25... Unlikely tho.. but that probably would be enough.
I expect somewhere between 10-15 :eek:

Machado is far away. I have him too. The others still have a chance. But 3-5 stage wins is very optimistic.

Hmm, it sure is close. Hopefully a few of my top 20 contenders will improve. I have 4 riders in the 20-30 placings.

I thought Machado would be one of this year's surprises but now he has to do a Porte to make a comeback.

Looking at Lampre's team setup I honestly don't know why I picked Spilak. Agnoli at least managed to do allright last year even though Liquigas did a lot of pulling. Moreno has shown good form and might make it into a break on stage 11 or the later mountain stages.

Seems like I have to bet on Contador wanting to make a statement before the CAS ruling.
