You know what I mean though with it being the end of the season and before the worlds. You can have riders using it as prep for the worlds or those suffering from a long hard season already. Add in that it's not the flattest race either and you never know how riders legs will cope.

What should have been a straight forward transition day with a bunch sprint has turned into a really interesting stage today. Quintana in the 40 man breakaway with Jakobson and Sam Bennet also getting away. Roglic and Jumbo will have to work all day to try and bring it back together maybe with a bit of help from UAE. They'll get no help from Movistar or the sprinters teams. Quickstep actually have 7 in the breakaway who will most likely go full steam all day. Movistar have 4 I think...

I probably wouldnt have bothered watching the stage tonight but I think I'll have to now.

Quintana is 7 mins back so they are going to have to go some to eat significantly into Roglicís lead but interesting as you say. Interesting. Holding at 3 mins at moment but wind a factor. Also Quintana will need to work hard with big mountain stage tomorrow.


Bennett Jakobson and Degenkolb in the break so thereís todayís podium probably.

Boro_Gypo Posted on 11/09/2019 12:23

If Quintana could get himself back to within 2-3 minutes at least it would give him a squeak in the final stages although Roglic looks unbreakable in the mountains so far.

You are right with the likely podium but there are others with a chance. Boassan Hagen could get involved and I wouldn't be surprised to see Gilbert have a go from maybe 2 or 3 km out. That would allow Jakobson to make Bennet do the work.

What do we expect today?

I would guess Movistar will try and get 2 or 3 in the breakaway then we will see Valverde and Quintana take turns on attacking Roglic up Puerto de la Morcuera with help up the road if they manage to get away. This is probably the last stage that major time can be taken.

I got yesterdays tactics spot on with DQS albeit the personnel changed roles as Jakobsen was dropped. It was executed perfectly.

I need a De Gent win today then Luis Leon Sanchez to win on Saturday for me to take the overall I reckon. Even then it'd be Plazmahiraculous for me to top the table [:D]

I thought I had an outside chance of sneaking into a Podium spot until Higuita did that yesterday. With the 3 guys in front of me all having Higuita and Roglic, it's out of reach now. (Go Slow Stripes)

You've got to love the Vuelta [^]

Great to see the Sky rulebook of racing a Grand Tour ripped up and just have riders trying to destroy each other at every opportunity.

Congratulations to borolad for his lunge at the line [:D]

Pleased with my 3rd place, but can't help but think that losing Hugh Carthy on day 5 and then Mezgecs to a crash on a sprint stage cost me a good few points.

Congrats Borolad, not having Pogacar killed me in the end, but backing him for a couple of stage wins eased the pain [8D]

Something's amiss Abel.

When I visit the Spring Classics link from my team page I'm only seeing 9 riders in the FMTTM league.

If I then go to one of the teams missing from my view (eg Peloton Brief) then there is no link to the FMTTM SC league on their page [?]

It does seem a bit odd as Si is ranked in the top 100 for the entire season so a good SC performance would make sense. I'm guessing my view of the SC league is screwed up

Computers eh?

Think I know whatís happened. No itís velogames clunky software. You have to go to ďFMTTM Grand ToursĒ link to get the full result of the Spring Classics when on the Spring Classics page. . And have to say it confused me when I did the thread last April which was wrong and apologies to my self for doing myself out of the overall win but also Cardiffdaffs who finished second.

What I can only assume has happened since on the FMTTM Sc is that the three missing teams including mine ďresignedĒ from the SC league - in my case to ensure I could see all the leagues on the Dashboard.

Similarly, thought my Vuelta team was pretty strong (Roglic, Pogo-car, Gilbert) but Carthy cost me and Chaves had a mare.
