get the gen here.
Well it's already got very interesting and we're only a little more than a week in.
The Avatar Riders have been working hard with de Tier (Liz S) and van Poppel (Rachael P) pedalling their socks off for Lotto NL Jumbo and each earning 15 points. Vicky and Laura B managed to bag 15 and 30 points respectively in a class challenge.
Movistar managed to find themselves a super-sharp pair of pointy elbows apiece, and someone (actually it was Vicky) send Laura B a wobbly wheel which meant she lost 10 points.
Confused? It gets worse. Gourgeard, who is the avatar rider for Cupid (AG2R la Mondiale) was doing nicely and earning 15 points for breakaway effort not once but twice, then got a hurty and was forced to withdraw. That means Cupid's just lost all his points. Bad luck, mate.
Dr Lamborghini says...
"Ah, you learn fast. Excellent progress, ragazzo. Would you like to try a little something stronger?
I have here a ride in a Fiat Punto. This will put you 5 points ahead of everyone else in the peloton.
Want something for the opposition? No problem, how about a Roundabout Misjudgment? This should never happen, but sometimes a whole team will get carried away and take the wrong side of some road furniture, like this long side of a roundabout. Each member of your least favourite team will lose 15 points. Interested? Si cierto; you should be."
Fancy a ride to the finish line in a Fiat Punto? Only £4. Or prefer to hamper an entire team with a Roundabout Misjudgment? Total bargain - £5. Click the naughty button. You know you want to.
