|I believe Miller is dead last right now (185th), and Dekker is at 180th. They're having a GREAT Tour!! Too bad the organizers aren't using the jersey for the lanterne rouge. It would look good on Miller.|
|Dekker was a bad fantasy choice||mr_spin|

|Great rider, but he's going for the World Cup this year. He's using the Tour primarily as training. Expensive mistake!
Millar just had bad luck.
|Steels and Millar were bad choices...||jba|

|I picked Tom Steels and Millar for my fantasy team. Gee, I guess Steels really was sick like a dog because he's no where near the front! And Millar? Well, he tried his best but couldn't keep it right side up. I just hope he recovers well enough for the uphill ITT.
Despite Ludo's second place today, I'm in 1200+th place in the performance competition with only 74 pts. Everyday I lose more ground. I don't see how some people could "afford" the riders on their teams. Some guys have moreau, armstrong, and a good sprinter along with some good breakaway artists. I got some climbers though. I hope they come through before I'm in last place.
|What happened with Steels?||mr_spin|

|I'm #549. I took Steels, too. I still have hope for him, but I am feeling let down for sure. I couldn't see Millar winning anything but the prologue, and he seemed too expensive for that. Ludo was a good choice. He's a hardman, seemingly perfect for these past few stages.
I've got an awesome team (Armstrong, Steels, O'Grady, Piil, Basso, Zubeldia, Fred Rodriguez, Rous, and Pettachi), but little results to show for it. I guess if results were a sure thing, they wouldn't need to run the race!

|All I heard was some very vague statement about Steels being sick some time back and perhaps being out of shape for the Tour. Against my better judgement I picked him anyway thinking that if his team had picked him to ride the Tour, his form couldn't be all that bad. Looks like I was wrong. I'm hoping he'll pick up a bit after the mountains. (yeah, right.)
I didn't pick Zabel knowing that Fagnini was not selected for Telekom's team and he'd probably have to fend for himself against DOMO, Mapei and the other teams. Wrong again.
I just hope I'm not wrong about Armstrong. I hope I didn't jinx him by picking him!
