- TdF Stage 6 – A Beautiful Landscape [Spoilers]
Horses for courses but it being more like having an actual team seems fair to me
Yep, velogames is the league for people who actually know what they’re doing, and makes it much more interesting. Means if riders crash or pull out it effects you a lot more, and you have to pick people on their previous form, rather then their form during the first few stages.
Griepel must expend 500 watts of power just gnashing his teeth.

There’s a lot of talk about the wind, keeps reminding me of this..

if i was going to be involved, its on the pick a team and stick with it basis.
in almost every incarnation that means you are doomed to failure as people pick the best team for the day/week
didnt see that velogames was different, till the entries had closed 🙁thisisnotaspoonMember
In his book when it refers tot he 2nd kick it’s more a reference to beig able to sprint flat out more than once in a day, not accelerate further in the last sprint. Examples like getting stuck at the back of the pelaton with 3k to go then having to sprint through the bunch, join a train and sprint again.
In the ‘traning and raceing with a power meter’ they refer to it as burning a match, a match being one interval. So cav can do 2 flat out sprint intervals, an average cyclist might beable to do 2 20min threshold in a session, a pro might do 5. Once you’re out of matches your power drops off a cliff the next interval.Posted 4 years agomudsharkMember

Well I disagree though I’m only doing Velogames this year as the other ones I did last year took a lot of effort and I didn’t think I’d be able to make the time this year. The one which has a limited number of changes over the whole tour was the best as you had to work out what changes to make when so you have the most appropriate riders available for the most number of stages. Really makes you study what’s going on and looking for good value riders as well as the obvious successful ones.Posted 4 years ago
