Tour Week 1 Update
A week of highs and lows.
The standings are as follows:
1 IrishCornersteve 1256
2 Zjuul23 1188
3 kingofnomountains 1136
4 lukegjpotter 1133
5 anarres cycling 1027
6 Ladyluck 777
7 Not a hill 663
8 Dguver 646
9 werrahesse dixie 234


We hav a clear leader, and a three horse race for second hoping for a crack. Plus an outside shot at a podium.

SOS has peaked at 9th in the world.
But it might be an early peak, using 23/45 transfers.
This second week goes from Mountain (from week 1), Flat, Mountain, Flat, Flat, MM Breakway, Mountain.
So lots of batch transfers will be required.

Jules in second place using 19/45 transfers. Only a couple of picks of Merlier has slowed Jules down.

Luke waited until Stage 6 to make his first transfers, then used 18 transfers in 4 stages.

I (other Luke (how have I become a sidekick in my own story?)) have used 23/45 transfers. So will need to be prudent. Wrong picks of Merlier over Philipsen, and accidently picking breakaway no hopers (my kryptonite) has cost me.

Outside shot for the podium, Anarres, has used 23 transfers too. They've done very well to pick Jasper Philipsen at the right times.

Tour Week 3 Update
Two weeks of stress for the top of the table.
Two flat stages, didn't end in a sprint, which costed many a transfer.

Final Standings
1 IrishCornersteve 3006
2 Zjuul23 2737
3 lukegjpotter 2569
4 anarres 2557
5 kingofnomountains 2440
6 Ladyluck 2270
7 Dguver 1360
8 Not a hill 1353
9 werrahesse dixie 586

SOS peaked at 2nd in the world during the second week. Unfortunately the third week was tough on Steven and he ended up in 21st in the world.

Jules remained in second place since week 1.

Luke, me, main Luke, had some brutal brutal stage results, but I beat other Luke.

Anarres put together a two weeks to rally up to fourth.

See yis/yous/ye in the Vuelta for a sunny September.

Shaun is keeping him honest.

As we head into the third, and final, Rest Day, one man played with Panache and subsequently went ThermoNeuclear in the Alps. He reclaimed 91 points on the leader, courtesy of some Mutant performances. This same man will be looking to press his fantastic form into the Pyrenees.
P  Name           Score
1  Niall Kieran    2084
2  Shaun Kelly     2042
3  Luke Potter     2015
4  Ruairí          1731
5  Upthedubs       1701

Niall still looks good for a Giro-Tour Double.
Shaun could seek to keep the pressure on.
Luke seems to have secured the podium and now looks up at the higher positions.

The Tour is over.
Niall has completed the Giro-Tour Double. He got third in Ireland and 108th in the world. Congrats to Niall.

Shaun pushed Niall close, only for Jakobsen's unshipped chain to dent his hopes.
Luke may have bought too much into his own legend after the Alps, and jumped the shark.
A debut for upthedubs, seen him finish fourth.
P  Name           Score
1  Niall Kieran    2993
2  Shaun Kelly     2936
3  Luke Potter     2831
4  Upthedubs       2559

The only question is that can Niall get the Triple Crown?
Or will legendary players such as SOS and Jules make a triumphant return?

We'll see you on August 19th for the Vuelta.
It starts with a Team Time Trial in Utrecht, followed by two Sprint Stages that could be affected by Crosswinds, aka Waaiers.

The Giro and The Tour have come and gone, Epic Gamers. The bad news is, that you're out of contract in the Winter. This is your last chance saloon.
We also need to stop Niall from winning the Triple Crown.

The Vuelta a España competition is now open on Road.cc's Fantasy site.

It's the same league code.
If you've played the Giro or Tour, you've already entered the league for the year.

This year's prize is a 1.5mm Allen Key.

Vuelta a España
The Vuelta starts with a Team Time Trial in Utrecht, followed by two Sprint Stages that could be affected by Crosswinds, aka Waaiers.
You'll need to have your team picked by 16:00 on August 19th.

Congrats to Niall Kieran for completing the Triple Crown.

But most importantly, he's won the grand prize of a 1.5mm Allen Key. He can place it beside his Baguette NFT and Street Cred.

I will be immediately drafting a Motion for the Orwell AGM requesting that we rename the race the Wednesday before the Nationals in Niall's honour.
