When the first attacks started, Ballan got them all back (before that the 4 riders all worked well together). I wouldn't do anything either if I had Ballan doing the work. Let him do the work and save your strength. But Freire saw Ballan wouldn't get Popovich that last time and still stayed; that was a mistake.
Didn't expect to see Klöden go off yesterday, but I loved it was Boogerd who did it! Great Rabobank riding yesterday; especially Rasmussen/Boogerd. Still think Klöden can get on the podium.
I'm hoping Kloden does as I'm a T-Mobile fan - always my team of choice on Pro Cycling Manager! I think I'm one of about 14 cycling fans in England!
The game is a little way off yet but I'm working solely on it. It'll be print and play amd Formula De style but having to be tactical (you can make a break for it (and use a larger dice) but that cyclist's power will drop by one for the remains of that stage for example, and will include slipstreaming and relaying)...
I'm working on up to forty cyclists which the players choose five of each to race for their team. Stages will be released two per 'board' as and when I create them. Of course playtesting will cause things to change slightly.
