Here it is, Andy.
Not too much but...

Do you have a video from stage 4, the queen stage?

Of course we do, I have the ultimate team at each manager! But there's a long time ago since I won something, but if I win Luxembourg this year it's worth it.

Thanks Andy :)
I'll not, i love this game:)
Simply, i had high hopes for these last 4 races and only in Oman i got a good result...
I guess everybody starts a race thinking to have the best team :)))
Let's see how the month ends, but my confidence is little, specially with such a tough duel ahead... ;)
Yesterday i was so close to win a stage: Andalucia-4º, Oman-6º and Algarve-8º...
I've only one since i begun, in September.
P.S. My faith and passion for this game will not disappear, for sure :)

Don't get panic. You get a new opportunity tomorrow in Haut Var! That's something what I appreciate with the manager, you always gets a new opportunity if you fail in a race.

Bad choices.
Bad luck.
Bad manager...

Tomas now leading me by 1.2 pts... I would've been in the lead and felt comfortable if not for Izaguirre's mechanical yesterday. Good news for me is that Tony Martin won't win this race. The GC should be between Geraint and Kwiatkowski. Formolo vs. Gallopin might decide our duel tomorrow. It's so tight that it could also come down to the last stage even if we don't have different sprinters...

Porte sure sucked today.

Close in the big duel, right behind me. Why didn't I even think about Geraint Thomas here?

I think PCS's some kind of live result page is the best we could get : http://www.procyclingstats.com/race.php?id=150060

Are there any camera from the finish line today?

Quite impressive, yes...

Nice 2-3-4 by Astana there. Are Kwiato and Styby the Cav's new train?

Link for the 1st stage. From third minute and in portuguese.. :)

RTP2 gives the highlights at 23h45.
You can try to watch in rtp.pt/play/direto/rtp2.
P.S. For anyone interested don't forget in Portugal is one hour less than in Spain, Norway, Netherlands, Belgium, Danmark, etc.. And two hours less than in Finland

Booya, already 20 pts ahead of Tomas! Something I forgot to factor in, but that's already working in my favor, is the white jersey points for Formolo. Him being a youth rider never even crossed my mind when selecting the team. Our teams are a lot more similar than expected though, unforunately. The only two differences are Formolo vs. Gallopin and me having Jon Izaguirre higher up than Tony Martin.

jepped [TeamSolex] Wednesday 18.Feb 17:19, 2015
I can't understand didn't Eurosport broadcast this race some years back?

Anyway my worst fear came true Etixx dominance. I was about to choose the whole team for this race :p

It is amazing they can keep all riders happy.

And the 1st stage goes to: Meersman!

panteras [joao s] Tuesday 17.Feb 23:28, 2015
For anyone interested, the Tour of Algarve has a twitter accont @valgarve2015. could be useful to follow ;-)

Epo: yeah.. like you've done so fare this season ;)

Still largely undecided on my team here. Nevertheless, I'm gonna murder your balls, Tomas.

Andy [Luxembourg Finest] Tuesday 17.Feb 22:26, 2015
12th FC-manager overall
Well, I only have one negative thing to say about him, so that should work.

LosBrolin [JuhaMieto] Tuesday 17.Feb 22:16, 2015

Oops! My bad. Can I change Bardet to Formolo then?

Andy [Luxembourg Finest] Tuesday 17.Feb 21:24, 2015
12th FC-manager overall
Wrong race! But I agree with you, I remember he was 240 km in breakaway in Amstel as neo-pro, perhaps 2012.

LosBrolin [JuhaMieto] Tuesday 17.Feb 21:12, 2015

I'm hoping Romain Bardet to shine here, maybe he can win someting big this year. Cool rider!

Andy [Luxembourg Finest] Tuesday 17.Feb 21:00, 2015
12th FC-manager overall
A family reunion by the Kreders here?

Thank you K92, hopefully I have found a competitive team.

Francisco [K92-Team Neverland] Tuesday 17.Feb 18:29, 2015

But even if it is different, it won't be much.
The same to the other stages, TT included...

Francisco [K92-Team Neverland] Tuesday 17.Feb 18:27, 2015
24th FC-manager overall
I'm not sure if they'll climb in the same side.
It will be up and down and with the final climb at 5 km from finnish. This final climb is 4,5 km with 7%, i think. In the 4th stage the final climb is at finnish line and it's shorter (2,5 km, more or less) but hardest 9,5 %, +/-. They'll make this climb twice!

Andy [Luxembourg Finest] Tuesday 17.Feb 18:07, 2015

Is the stage to Monchique a copy of last year's stage? Three good stage race this week, and we are only able to watch one live, that's disappointing, but the economy isn't the best in the world of cycling at the moment.

Francisco [K92-Team Neverland] Tuesday 17.Feb 16:58, 2015
24th FC-manager overall
Logreid, you can bet on that! 5 days race with 2 flat stages, 1 TT and 2 mountains finnish (one long and another short but very hard).
Andy, the 10 min highlights it will be on RTP2. I'm not sure but i hope that it will be on RTP on-line or play.
I will check and, if so, give the link :)

Great! Is it RTP1? I didn't find any TV guide there..

Partykjeppen [Il Piccolo Gregari] Tuesday 17.Feb 11:06, 2015

If you have a link for the daily highlights, that'd be great! Too bad there's not more as both the parcours and riders looks interesting.

Final sprint is sunday, not monday...

Francisco [K92-Team Neverland] Monday 16.Feb 22:37, 2015
24th FC-manager overall
After a few days with clouds, strong wind and a bit of rain the sun return this afternoon :)
Is expected sunny days until next sunday wich will be great to the race!!!
I want to be in the depart, wednesday in Faro, somewhere in the last km, saturday (the queen stage) and, maybe, in the final sprint, monday :)

For everybody who may be interested:
Portuguese Public TV will give a 10 minutes daily report of the Volta ao Algarve.
I guess this it will be possible to watch in RTP.pt/play
I'm not sure but you can try if you want :)
