Oh well ... the road is the best part for the most :)) for me it's the setup ... the rest is crap :D

Thought this was on live on British Eurosport. Just seen the result. EPO beats me, whether or not he wins overall I don't know.

Haha .. yeah well, i love EPO... what a boring forum this would be without him .... but I hate him doing well in manager games :D ... big difference

EPO beats me unless, (a) big breakaway win. or (b) Alaphilippe is involved in the finish. Thanks for the support though, or nearer the mark, the lack of support for EPO. :)

Just noticed your comment below goon. Thanks. But I've lost too many of these on the final day that I now don't even dream about a win until all the GC pts have been added. :)

I'm joking EPO .... well done :)) but can you win ... a long way up to Aragonite

my team is currently the GC top 8 in perfect order. only 9th pick kwiatkowski gone, after scoring a lot of stage points

I'd take that too.

I have been aiming on that score for a long time! Would be nice if rest of the race + GC calculations had been cancelled now :)

Nice point score Andy .... intentionally of course :D

SKY did 57.5 km per hour ...

Sky putting in half a minute on BMC and a minute on all the other GC favourites at least. From Trek onwards it's pretty tight though.

Aragonite [TORA TORA TORA] Wednesday 6.Jun 16:11, 2018
6th FC-manager overall - 11th FC-manager last 6 weeks
Time gaps very close together.

Marek_c [Passionforbiking] Wednesday 6.Jun 11:21, 2018
Well, didn't realized that he won national champ. ..maybe i should shut up and do my homework :). However my point is that everyone is expecting BMC to rule in every TTT just because the reputation, but in Dauphiné their squad doesn't look strong enough to win.
I agree that SKY is pretty unpredictable in TTT. They even crashed out of a certain 2nd position in Hammer Stavanger, completely by their own fault.

Partykjeppen [Il Piccolo Partykjepps] Wednesday 6.Jun 11:17, 2018
I'd imagine Sky have bothered to put in the necessary work to make their riders into a fearsome TTT unit as well this year due to this being the dress rehearsal for a similar TTT in the Tour - thus edging out some of the advantage teams like BMC/Mitchelton usually have due to putting more emphasis on this in their general training regime.

johnjackjoe [JohnJackJoe Racing] Wednesday 6.Jun 11:14, 2018
9th FC-manager overall - 27th FC-manager last 6 weeks
My black horse for today is Movistar. The squad is very balanced and all can TT above average. If they can get the teamwork right that could be a Top3 surprise

LosBrolin [JuhaMieto] Wednesday 6.Jun 11:01, 2018
3rd FC-manager overall - 5th FC-manager last 6 weeks
Wut? Imo Joey ain't that bad time trialist, you don't win National champs by being "not a TT rider at all":)

Many times we've seen SKY coming with insane line up to TTT only to lose Orica or similar.

Marek_c [Passionforbiking] Wednesday 6.Jun 09:47, 2018
Bohli is maybe not that bad afterall, but Rosskopf is not TT rider at all. Either the rest of this BMC squad. The have like 2-3 "second-row" TT riders in this race, Sky has 3 of the 4 best TT riders in the whole team.
This is because BMC's "first row" is in Suisse ;)

goon1221 [BMC] Wednesday 6.Jun 09:19, 2018
13th FC-manager overall - 25th FC-manager last 6 weeks
Rosskopf and Bohli is no TT riders at all ? ... I gotta disagree that marek....
Not that I don't think SKY should win this pretty easy ... they will .... but BMC, like Mitchelton Scott can do TTT even without the strongest TT guys in place ... 
ITT and TTT is two different things ... A ITT goes 50 km per hour, while a TTT goes in 56 - 58 km per hour ... so we are talking about a teams ability to stay together and do the right priorities underway ... that is something BMC and MS do best in the world ..... the on paper, rider by rider TT-wice do not necessarily needs to be the best TTT team ... that is something we seen many times ...

Marek_c [Passionforbiking] Wednesday 6.Jun 08:04, 2018
BMC is not that strong as they used to be in TTT. Beside Bookwalter, Caruso and Bevin there is no TT riders at all. They barely managed to have one rider in top 10 in prologue, while Sky would have 4, if G hadn’t crash.

They are red hot favourites compared to that TTT giant of the WT, UAE. 10p to win £150. Or 1,500/1.

Andy [Luxembourg Finest] Tuesday 5.Jun 23:35, 2018
26th FC-manager last 6 weeks
The probability of all other teams to crash is not 1/600, more 1/10000

Partykjeppen [Il Piccolo Partykjepps] Tuesday 5.Jun 23:34, 2018
I still find it fanciful that they would win 1 in every 600 iterations of this.

Aragonite [TORA TORA TORA] Tuesday 5.Jun 23:32, 2018
6th FC-manager overall - 11th FC-manager last 6 weeks
25p to win £150. Or 600/1. :)

How high is Vital Concept? :)

Aragonite [TORA TORA TORA] Tuesday 5.Jun 23:16, 2018
6th FC-manager overall - 11th FC-manager last 6 weeks
In laymans terms. Too win 150. You need to stake :- 1 on Movi, 7 on MS, 14 on QS, 40 on BMC, and 525 on Sky. :)

Aragonite [TORA TORA TORA] Tuesday 5.Jun 22:42, 2018
6th FC-manager overall - 11th FC-manager last 6 weeks
Sky are red hot favourites with Bet365. 2/7 Sky, 15/4 BMC, 11/1 QS, 22/1 MS, and for Koronin 150/1 Movistar.

Koronin [Koronin] Tuesday 5.Jun 22:25, 2018
If I were to pick a team for the TTT tomorrow it would be BMC. They have a good TTT no matter who they have on their roster for the race. QS could also beat Sky if they have a good day. MS should be close as well. Movistar is a huge question mark as they sent a very young team to this race.

Andy [Luxembourg Finest] Tuesday 5.Jun 17:13, 2018
26th FC-manager last 6 weeks
For me it is still most likely that Sky wins the TTT and if Kwiato isn't hurt by the crash he will regain jersey. Will never rule out QS either, but with only Terpstra and Jungels as their machines it is going to be hard for them to win.

Aragonite [TORA TORA TORA] Tuesday 5.Jun 16:44, 2018
6th FC-manager overall - 11th FC-manager last 6 weeks
Bora must have confidence in him. Would of thought they'd go with McCarthy on at least one of the last couple of stages.

LosBrolin [JuhaMieto] Tuesday 5.Jun 16:40, 2018
3rd FC-manager overall - 5th FC-manager last 6 weeks
Impressive ride by Ackermann again. He's climbing better and better at every race.

If I had to bet on someone to be in yellow after the TTT, it would be Bookwalter.

goon1221 [BMC] Tuesday 5.Jun 16:30, 2018
13th FC-manager overall - 25th FC-manager last 6 weeks
Yes he did .... so maybe back in yellow tomorrow ... although ... if someone could threaten SKY tomorrow, it's definitely MS.... and BMC of course....

Kwia looking ok.

Impey in yellow.

And Kwiato in the ground

No Coquard either.

Jacobsen is not there.

goon1221 [BMC] Tuesday 5.Jun 16:07, 2018
13th FC-manager overall - 25th FC-manager last 6 weeks
Kwiato will have to sprint today to try to keep his jersey ? ... is Jacobsen gone ? ... no QS in front ...

Marek_c [Passionforbiking] Tuesday 5.Jun 11:13, 2018
I was really tempted to put Kwiato as captain, but was uncertain about his role in team against G. Should have also picked Moscon, as he rulled Hammer Stavanger together with Impey. Now waiting for Sky to win the TTT, and Marczynski to win a stage.

Apart from producing gt riders that can hold 3 weeks :D, Mitchelton Scott really do something right with their riders ....

goon1221 [BMC] Sunday 3.Jun 15:25, 2018
13th FC-manager overall - 25th FC-manager last 6 weeks
I placed Kwiato on 125 for the same reason ... maybe degrade Thomas would be an idea, but didn't know who to trust with the top spot, so Thomas it was.... I thought maaaaaaybe for once :D

Andy [Luxembourg Finest] Sunday 3.Jun 15:21, 2018
26th FC-manager last 6 weeks
This is why I didn't trust G enough to put him captain. He never do any races without crashing at least once.

Aragonite [TORA TORA TORA] Sunday 3.Jun 15:05, 2018
6th FC-manager overall - 11th FC-manager last 6 weeks
Kwia, 'Both of us(him and G)are team leaders for the GC'.

goon1221 [BMC] Sunday 3.Jun 14:48, 2018

Thomas 21 sec behind after that crash .... would have won without it ... no doubt....

Koronin [Koronin] Saturday 2.Jun 02:40, 2018
TY. May go need to make some changes. Don't think Soler can over come the time loose he's going to get with that. (Well at least not to be my captain.)
