Critérium du Dauphiné comments [newest on top]

sker [Team Paracarri] Saturday 15.Jun 21:30, 2019
7 guys in 33 seconds before the final stage. If we count TJ and Teuns out (they will play defence) there should be fireworks between the other 5

Koronin [Koronin] Saturday 15.Jun 18:58, 2019
It appears Quintana actually attacked today. (Watching Le Mans so haven't actually seen the stage yet. Will play catch up tomorrow.

Yes, they refused him a bottle 10-15k from the finish. Didn't seem too happy about it either.

Alaphilippe ? caus he didn't got that last bottle :D

Aragonite [TORA TORA TORA] Friday 14.Jun 16:54, 2019

That's because he was dying of thirst. :)

But he didn't get it easy ... Mühlberger sprint good ...

All hail the Musketeer. :)

Viktor86 [Le Tour de Brabant] Thursday 13.Jun 18:13, 2019
Froome should have lost 2017 due to his own infringements, but then the UCI did nothing.

Andy [Luxembourg Finest] Thursday 13.Jun 17:39, 2019
I only see one Sir on that podium

Aragonite [TORA TORA TORA] Thursday 13.Jun 16:30, 2019

Froome looking set to become first British GT winner. :)

How many years until the Sirs are DSQ'd as well? I love antidoping. Vuelta 2011 podium in 2025: Mollema, Monfort and Van den Broeck.

Froome breaks his leg and seemingly wins another GT. 2011 Vuelta.

Fun cliffhanger though :D

Andy [Luxembourg Finest] Thursday 13.Jun 15:55, 2019
He said that in some interview? And if that is known, it is impossible for him to succeed since he can't surprise anyone

goon1221 [] Thursday 13.Jun 15:48, 2019
19th FC-manager overall
Edvald is gonna attack from the peloton 2 km togo in a roundabout today ... so that's something to look forward to :D ...

Viktor86 [Le Tour de Brabant] Thursday 13.Jun 09:57, 2019
Who rides so fast in a recon...

goon1221 [] Thursday 13.Jun 09:53, 2019
19th FC-manager overall
He was blowing his nose ....
And this is not a joke :D

goon1221 [] Thursday 13.Jun 09:47, 2019
19th FC-manager overall
Froome with fractured femur, elbow and several ribs ... 
Well, there goes 2019 .... 
But what the hell was he thinking with one hand on the handle in a technical downhill in 60 km p h ? ...

Viktor86 [Le Tour de Brabant] Thursday 13.Jun 09:38, 2019
I am less surprised on the lack of faith in Van Aert. He was not expected to do so well in the time trial and the sprints.

Partykjeppen [Il Piccolo Gregari] Thursday 13.Jun 01:12, 2019
That’s just what I’ve been saying regularly for Mike Teunissen this year, Aragonite.

Aragonite [TORA TORA TORA] Wednesday 12.Jun 17:28, 2019
26th FC-manager overall
He will have to be considered for Tour teams. Shame he will be used as Groenewegen's lead out man.

bminchow [Man Chow] Wednesday 12.Jun 17:19, 2019
Hmmm. Only 3 people picked Wout in the Fantasy? That is surprising.

goon1221 [] Wednesday 12.Jun 17:01, 2019
19th FC-manager overall
Yes ... absolute.... count him in the mix ... maybe even Quintana ... 40 sec behind

Aragonite [TORA TORA TORA] Wednesday 12.Jun 16:34, 2019
26th FC-manager overall
If Buchmann hadn't got into the break on stage2 he would probably be leading now. Still has to have a chance of being thereabouts for me.

goon1221 [] Wednesday 12.Jun 16:16, 2019
19th FC-manager overall
This should be about Yates and Fuglsang now ... and Kruijswijk maybe ... Pinot ...

goon1221 [] Wednesday 12.Jun 16:01, 2019
19th FC-manager overall
That he could do a good ITT doesn't surprise me at all, but on this level was a little bit over the top :D

goon1221 [] Wednesday 12.Jun 15:59, 2019
19th FC-manager overall
Yes.... thats what i ment ... the gap here is insane

Andy [Luxembourg Finest] Wednesday 12.Jun 15:57, 2019
This must be his second TT win on the road, first one was also a big surprise at the Belgium prologue one year ahead of Tony Martin. 47 seconds ahead of Dumoulin is crazy even if he is not 100% yet.

goon1221 [] Wednesday 12.Jun 15:53, 2019
19th FC-manager overall
Wow ... i gotta say ... Van Aert surprises me big today

Aragonite [TORA TORA TORA] Wednesday 12.Jun 15:48, 2019
26th FC-manager overall
No quick way back from one of them.

Andy [Luxembourg Finest] Wednesday 12.Jun 15:42, 2019
Broken femur likely. Ineos is of course still the favorites for the Tour with Thomas and Bernal there

goon1221 [] Wednesday 12.Jun 15:42, 2019
19th FC-manager overall
WOW ... Van Aert ... what the hell ... let's see if he can stay ahead on the power stretch as well ...

Aragonite [TORA TORA TORA] Wednesday 12.Jun 15:40, 2019
26th FC-manager overall
What is the injury?

goon1221 [] Wednesday 12.Jun 15:27, 2019
19th FC-manager overall
They probably win le tour anyway though Andy :D

goon1221 [] Wednesday 12.Jun 15:20, 2019

Remi took a long shot and droped Froome for Poels ... worth mentioning :D:D
I remember a dog in tour of Turkey also Remi :D

Andy [Luxembourg Finest] Wednesday 12.Jun 15:18, 2019
First Bernal before Giro and now this, not the year to Ineos this?

LosBrolin [JuhaMieto] Wednesday 12.Jun 15:14, 2019

no Le Tour for Dawg

Assassin [Troy The Trader] Monday 10.Jun 22:27, 2019

Correct. Tried to streamline this part of the month with managers before the big Nationals weekend and therefore Belgium became a casualty.

goon1221 [] Monday 10.Jun 21:49, 2019

Wierd ... 6 years, and it's gone ?

Aragonite [TORA TORA TORA] Monday 10.Jun 21:27, 2019
26th FC-manager overall
Are we not doing the Belgian Tour this year?

Andy [Luxembourg Finest] Monday 10.Jun 17:41, 2019
For flat sprint stages I often say that :) But not for stages like this

goon1221 [] Monday 10.Jun 16:28, 2019
19th FC-manager overall
With 4-5 hours ToN available in mind :D

goon1221 [] Monday 10.Jun 16:27, 2019
19th FC-manager overall
Ironicly i guess :D

Aragonite [TORA TORA TORA] Monday 10.Jun 16:26, 2019

Thought you said, 'not much point in showing more than the last 10k', Andy?

goon1221 [] Monday 10.Jun 16:07, 2019
19th FC-manager overall
Hats off for Martin and Teuns ... really strong to stay ahead here ...

Andy [Luxembourg Finest] Monday 10.Jun 14:53, 2019
1 hour of coverage with this great stage is just great..

goon1221 [] Monday 10.Jun 13:41, 2019
19th FC-manager overall
Andy ... yeah ... that can be a problem .. no doubt

goon1221 [] Monday 10.Jun 13:38, 2019
19th FC-manager overall
Yeah .... too bad he most likely will have to deal with Bennett though :D
Today is the day for Alaphilippe... birthday present in advance :D

LosBrolin [JuhaMieto] Monday 10.Jun 11:27, 2019
21th FC-manager overall
perhaps Alaphilippe will try tomorrow as well, birthday and everything.

"Do you enjoy racing in France?

Absolutely. Especially Tuesday. The stage will arrive in Riom, not far from the Center region where I come from. Lots of people who like me are coming. Especially since it will be my birthday!"

Andy [Luxembourg Finest] Monday 10.Jun 10:59, 2019
How many Dimension riders to be there if no break established in the beginning of the stage?

goon1221 [] Monday 10.Jun 09:27, 2019
19th FC-manager overall
Interesting stage today for Edvald fans ... the profile might be doable for him on paper, but i couldn't spot him yesterday when Stybar sat speed in the last climb ... so this will be guessing...
Dimension Data is far from strong enough to control any breakaway, but if i was in charge, i would order the team to do their work early on the stage and keep the distance to the breakaway on a minimum in a attempt to keep the Jersey ... then it will be up to QS if they want Alaphilippe/Gilbert to win, and Edvald to hang on ...
I think it will be tough for him in any way, but not impossible ....
A little surprised btw to see Alaphilippe do the lead out yesterday and drop bonus seconds ... he is obviously not here for GC ... so today's stage must be a goal for him ...

Andy [Luxembourg Finest] Sunday 9.Jun 16:40, 2019
Sorry for that :)

Thought this was live on TV until I read your comment Andy. :)

Quintana for Porte. Apart from that we have the same selections goon. This field does live up to the title 'best stage race outside of GT' s'. Should be enjoyable.

Fuck, forgot to set a Team yesterday... nooo :D Remembered 10min too late

Team sat... if my logic has a good day :D

Who's best in 2019


Who's always good here


Who's fast


Who's in shape


Who's best on paper


Who's is Mr. Consistency


Who's unsure of those best on paper

TomDum and Porte .... so I droped them :D ...

First in line outside my team is


Excited about if Edvald can take a big win again ... looked pretty sharp in ToN ... today maybe ? Jersey and everything .... would be nice

Partykjeppen [Il Piccolo Gregari] Sunday 9.Jun 00:01, 2019
I like the parcours, shame if broadcasts are restricted to last 75 mins as always.

Roche is perhaps maybe a serviceable mid-level mountain domestique, but apart from Kelderman and him all Dumoulin's lieutenants in the mountains are 25 or younger and more or less unproven apart from Oomen. Shame, though I can see why they splashed cash on Matthews instead of someone like Caruso.

A bit strange to bring up in the same breath, but Kittel going back on performance based-pay should be a fit for both parties.

Andy [Luxembourg Finest] Saturday 8.Jun 23:14, 2019
Sunweb has a lot of talented climbers, but few of the extraordinary mountain domestiques, maybe because of a budget which is not the exactly highest in the WT.

Viktor86 [Le Tour de Brabant] Saturday 8.Jun 20:26, 2019
The whole stellar support for Big Tom relies on an injury prone Kelderman anyway. Whch in itself is ridiculous mismanagement of Spekenbrink.

Koronin [Koronin] Saturday 8.Jun 06:08, 2019
Landa isn't racing there and likely won't be racing again until the Spanish National Championships. Quintana is leading Movistar's team here. I'm thinking possibly Soler is leading their team at Suisse.

LosBrolin [JuhaMieto] Thursday 6.Jun 12:12, 2019

Not gonna ride GC so it doesn't really matter tho

Partykjeppen [Il Piccolo Gregari] Thursday 6.Jun 12:04, 2019
Not exactly stellar support for Big Tom.

guest4126 [team_guest4126] Wednesday 22.May 09:05, 2019
Not a lot of opportunity for Landa here.
