A fair ending as well.

Have to agree. Great stage, great race, great fans too. Most enjoyable.

Koronin [Koronin] Saturday 13.Apr 22:20, 2019
Finally got a good finish in a bigger WT stage race this year.

Agree ... very fun stage ... the Spanish really can construct stages ... And stage race in large I would say ...

Only in your head my friend, only in your head..

Andy [Luxembourg Finest] Saturday 13.Apr 18:21, 2019
But the outcome of GC was known the last hour..

Even if Buchdog screwed it up in the end - a VERY entertaining stage.

Wrong turn last km, and Buchmann miss podium as well ... I think he would made it without it ...

Horrible day for Bora ...

Andy [Luxembourg Finest] Saturday 13.Apr 16:20, 2019
The situation totally changed from yesterday, just have to love the race :)

Andy [Luxembourg Finest] Friday 12.Apr 16:56, 2019
Bora doing very good tactics right now

goon1221 [Jinx.inc] Friday 12.Apr 16:24, 2019

Schachmann still in it ... I think he have a chance if he's in the group at the bottom of the final climb .... unless he's totally cocked :D

Andy [Luxembourg Finest] Friday 12.Apr 15:39, 2019
You were right about Mas! More than 60 km left and off he goes

Aragonite [TORA TORA TORA] Friday 12.Apr 15:11, 2019

Think both Yates and Mas will have a good go before this race ends.

goon1221 [Jinx.inc] Friday 12.Apr 15:07, 2019

And don't forget ... it's pretty tight behind Konrad ... 1.01 to Yates ... this is gonna be fun

Aragonite [TORA TORA TORA] Friday 12.Apr 14:44, 2019
26th FC-manager overall
I think he will lose his lead either today or tomorrow, he was under pressure yesterday on that Bikotz Gane climb. What will be interesting is how Bora play their other two cards.

goon1221 [Jinx.inc] Friday 12.Apr 14:36, 2019

Interesting scenario today ... Schachmann needs to do a TomDum speciale :D

Koronin [Koronin] Thursday 11.Apr 20:05, 2019
Computer issues that ended up with losing all my bookmarks. Just glad I made it back here.

Francisco [K92-Team Neverland] Thursday 11.Apr 11:23, 2019
Lets just hope he'll recover to Ardennes as well as Kwiato. :)
About Itzulia, hoping for no more problems!

Andy [Luxembourg Finest] Thursday 11.Apr 11:06, 2019
QS confirms that Alaphillipe does not start today.

Thanks Assassin. Big Max could be worth a bet @ 6/1, 12/1 Bar the three.

This is what came from the organisers:

Km. 25. Climbing Opakua dorsal fall nº 74 Steff Cras, transfer by ambulance to Txagorritxu Hospital.

Not heard any injury updates after today's pile up, but Bet365 have The Musketeer 5/2 favourite for tomorrows stage, and Kwiato 11/2 second favourite.

So .... who's Bora gonna go for GC here ? ... of course, plan A must be for Schachmann to try to defend it on Friday, but if he drops early ... is it Buchmann or Konrad ?
Oh well ... I guess they had wors problems before :D
In other words ... good race for Bora

And that's not even all that unrealistic either ... at least the stage in every stage race part... actually, i expect nothing less if he stays healthy

Andy [Luxembourg Finest] Wednesday 10.Apr 17:36, 2019
Probably most of my riders down there, so this manager doesn't go very well :P Hope Alaphilippe isn't too badly injured, feared for the Ardennes when I saw him down

johnjackjoe [JohnJackJoe Racing] Wednesday 10.Apr 17:34, 2019
Quickstep got fucked by that crash. So no

Andy [Luxembourg Finest] Wednesday 10.Apr 17:26, 2019
Win no.23 to come in 10 km?

He has won a stage in all stage races he done this year, and also won all one-day races he started. Imagine if he can have that stats at the end of the season

Man - we who have parents who are third(?) cousins learn early in life that semi-incestous relationships like the ones of your dynasty fantasy-teams are best avoided #BibleBelt #KidsOfAdamAndEve #GenePool

Meh I seem to recall someone forgot the deal but the other person wrote it down because they knew person 1 would forget.

Andy [Luxembourg Finest] Monday 8.Apr 23:26, 2019
Because somebody posted it even if we didn't had a deal

Why did you even get him in the first place?

Andy [Luxembourg Finest] Monday 8.Apr 21:06, 2019
Isn't that a good enough reason to kick him out of my #SF team kjeppen? :D

johnjackjoe [JohnJackJoe Racing] Monday 8.Apr 19:04, 2019

The dry roads are kicking in now... let's see how this holds ...

Another Schach attack.

johnjackjoe [JohnJackJoe Racing] Monday 8.Apr 16:27, 2019
DQS fucked up sending Mas out early. I think the times will still get a lot faster now with the drying roads.

Basque cycling fans always ultra respectful to the riders.

There is a bit at 21% towards the top according to the commentators.

johnjackjoe [JohnJackJoe Racing] Monday 8.Apr 15:39, 2019
Amezketa was really fighting with that ramp. Looked like he was about to walk it.

Don't see G going all in on this descent if it's still wet.

Come on it's not that hard. There's twelve must have's, then four or five maybe's. :)

Francisco [K92-Team Neverland] Monday 8.Apr 11:46, 2019
G., Martinez, Martin, Pogacar and a few more belong to my scary droppings list, as you wisely name it... :)

The more you look at this :D ... first glance it looked easy, but I see your point now Francisco... alot of scary droppings

Oooooor Kwiato almost as good on stage 2 3 and 4 plus maybe Jersey after stage 2 or even 1 :D

I have just swapped Dan's. One number nine, the other first reserve, but may switch them around again before the race starts. :)

Francisco [K92-Team Neverland] Sunday 7.Apr 19:46, 2019
goon, how can you talk about honesty saying it was an easy riders pick?.. :)
In a quick look i found about 18 riders i would like to have in my team! :D

The Musketeer captain. He will hover up a lot of points on the first four stages.

Pretty easy riders pick here ... but I still struggle a little bit with the ranking ... any suggestions? :D .... and I expect full honesty :D

19th FC-manager overall
I mean ofcourse ... Alaphilippe for the first 4 stages, but how far will he drop in the mountains... same question with Kwiato ... Yates maybe ? Thomas if he's in shape now ...

goon1221 [Jinx.inc] Friday 5.Apr 18:46, 2019

Captain choise for this one ... a pickle i must say :D

Andy [Luxembourg Finest] Friday 29.Mar 21:26, 2019
