placed 1st, 4th, 5th, 13th, 24th and 32nd w/the six-man squadron. my sivakov pick finished just outside the points. woodsie in 5th!

good attempt by mcnulty. nice to see him up there in the last chunk of km's.

Wow 51 out of 5076!! I don't think I could've guessed how that race would have ended. Well, I suppose I had #2, #3 but those were the favorites. I little disappointed I didn't think of Carapaz, he was under rated but then pulled off his trade mark flyer of an attack!

Arashiro got a lot of TV time ... off the back usually ... so I'm mentally adding an extra 400 points to my tally

Donostiako Klasikoa

Back to the Basque country - big names showing up for a Vuelta warm up ... Thinking Vingegaard has a good showing before domestic duty at the Vuelta.


Hold onto your Txapela!

It's all over but the crying now. Well, if you discount the second guessing, wringing of hands, gnashing of teeth, etc.

I just saw that, but it's a good pick! I won't be fooled completely by your sandbagging before La Vuelta

slcbob picked Ayuso but I thought I'd keep my picks spicy with Adriá who finished third behind him this week. I didn't know how Ineos would approach this so I figured Bernal/Yates would work for Martinez as thanks/prep before Vuelta. Thinking I should've put Yates in for Bernal.

It appears apathy has gotten the better of some in the ongoing Superclasico event. It's just like a grand tour -- you can't tell how the picks will react (or if they'll react) after a rest day, or ten.

Three weeks off now. Then back on the weekly-ish grind for the second half.

Martinez a DNF, Adriá 41st 4:26 back Ineos aren't goofing around. Padun has been let out of wherever they had him locked up!

Might poke around the Volta a Portugal, haven't even looked up the race...?

so @slcbob is currently in the top .00154 percent of all 2598 participants. yah...4th. holy bleeping bleep! jfc congrats!

as is @slcbob's vibe/style/musings/custom/habit/lifestyle/je ne sais quoi...it's spent on a tour few care about or follow.
seems like something i'd emulate (or have, can't remember and don't remind/@ me). at least underdog had pretty polly purebred...

destroyed the bed this vuelta...o that olympic road race seems like an eternity...

Another race tomorrow. I think there are only a couple dozen more to go. Hang in there, those of you that haven't already hung it up.
