I am exceedingly impressed with Maffy's performance.  Congratulations.

I suppose he now gets three little palmares indicators next to his name (Top Ten ... ) This should make him one of the most decorated people in the whole game.  I should check, but does anyone else have four markers?

Brilliant, consistent, experienced, and of course a little bit lucky.  A little more luck or a slightly smarter choice and he would have won.

2 points where i deviated - the only two 6 point options were nicholas roche and michele scarponi. it seemed ridiculous to have either of these two when i had 4 spare points to put my team in so contador.

the second area being the only 7 point rider was chris horner and no i am not putting him into the team so alexander kristoff got in instead.

Not terribly happy about my picks.
You will all see them tomorrow anyway when the game closes, and I have never managed to copy things easily from the game format.

Team Occitan has both Contador and Froome and Kittel plus a few others that were cheap.  My most serious team.

Home Boys is all French.  Who knows, they might finish in the top half, but I doubt it.

J Rod and the Boys is one that has nothing to do with J Rod at all (name left over from the Giro), but has neither Froome nor Contador, but Nibali and Valverde and Cav, plus whoever else I could dig up for a cheap price.

Was going to replace Frank with Van Garderen for sure and would probably have tossed a coin on Sagan vs Kittel. Still, Frank might not be a crazy option for KOM.

yes, I'd be similar opinion. it is why i fped reichenback for the the mountains jersey as i think the I Am an Iams Cat team would be looking for something from the tour de france and would both frank and reichenbach, they could win the kom or at least be entertaining in that respect.

Impressed with the palmares of some of our better team directors, I checked.  There is one guy, Suitcase of Courage who has four gongs next to his name, and a few others with three.  Maffy is in select company.

Suitcase is not doing well this year, he picked Froome and Contador, among others.  Most of the teams with those guys in them are not doing all that well, and if you have one or two others, like Cav, life is a bit more bleak than it might be.

Thanks.  But I have to say that there was a little bit of luck, a fair bit of calculation, a wild experiment to NOT pick either Contador or Froome and the stars must have been right.  I have never done this well in my life, even though I pretend to know something about cycling.  But shit, third is incredible.  Even if it is only a game.

Makes up for my miserable FPs in the JC contest and the Velogames contest, and the resounding defeat by Maffy (again) in the Cobblestone thing.

What is perhaps more noteworthy is that the team "Home Boys", composed entirely of French guys did better than any team of Italians or Spanish I have ever picked for their home GT.  France is back!
