Wall Street Cycling / Re: The "WHAT WAS I THINKING?!" thread
« on: Today at 09:37:16 AM »
What was I Thinking not picking Restrepo in every league after predicting him my eternal love during vuelta last year  :doh:

I knew you'd love the topic :rofl:

I'd still say Orica and Bora weren't 100% predictable.

A. If Gerrans hadn't fossilized on the first hill, Chaves is such a nice guy that he would have helped him out for a 5th overall instead of going for 2nd himself.

B. I felt McCarthy was risky for two reasons:
1. There was more climbing added (goodbye, messieurs Slagter, Swift, Sagan, Gerrans etc.) so I honestly didn't believe he had the legs.
2. There is a new boss on the team. I imagine if Sagan wants to go for it, he asks you a favour you can't refuse :P

But indeed, I'm happy I invested a lot before uncertain races begin!

Speaking of which, just realized a loophole in the spreadsheet. You could invest 754950 in one rider in the last race of the quarter, then use your amnesty, and still pay no tax. Fixed now :koolaid:

none of my expected scorers performed

Like I said, nobody knew which of Sagan/McCarthy and Chaves/Gerrans was going for GC, so in fact I'd argue all four were immense gambles.
Two paid off, two didn't...

A topic reserved for eating humble pie, ex post facto brilliance, and self-harm ideas? We'll need one :thumbsup:

Seems like most people should score nicely in the TDU. Haas - and Valls to a lesser extent - stand out as excellent gambles, while the biggest losses predictably came from teams of unclear leadership in Bora & Orica.
