    Oh and with my 18 points, I look down on you!
    With my 12 points from stage one turning into 94 points after stage two...I now look down on you

    Up to 6th place in the league now.

      Any chance of a review so far then Pantani ?, as it's your baby.

      3rd place finish in the league for me so far

      I'm happy enough to just be looking down on SB at this stage in proceedings

      Easy tiger.
      It took me a while to get to grips (read) the scoring.
      I think you'll fine I finished strongly and won't get caught with my bibs down, come Nice.

      I'm also liking the idea of a 'cycling' thread for 11 months of the year, before we all move, en masse, to The Tour thread every July.

      To that end, I was just looking for another film to put up, but I'll be jiggered if I can find it now.

      Yep, nice strong finish on the final two stages there it has to be said. A good while until Paris - Nice, so plenty of time for you to swot up. ;)

      All good fun of course.

      There it is.
      Admittedly I've not watched it myself yet, but now I know where to find it.

      Hmm I thought I'd joined the league, apparently I hadn't, doh!
      It's a marathon, not a sprint.

      I think they do scoring for overall and for each event (with the spring classics counted together), so there is plenty of fun still to be had. Plus you can score crazy amounts of points per day if you get it right, the overall leader has 831 points which I believe is over 130 points per day.

      Heads up every body they seem to have added the Tour of Qatar to the game so the next event starts on 5th February, not Paris-Nice as it was before. This really will be a Tour for the geeks. Not like Australia where you can just pick all the home riders, famous Qatari cyclists... err... erm... no... there aren't any. Plus I think my top secret ultimate weapon will probably be competing in this Tour so beware. My top tip pre this tour starting, only pick sprinters, the official website does not even show stage profiles because it is so flat.

      Congratulations Mr Collins on a superb start, I was hoping my previous experience would give me an unfair advantage but alas this has not been the case.
      It's probably nice to be Olympic champion. Like winning Gent-Wevelgem or something.
