Stage 2 Results

Picture_13_medium

With 3 favorites in the first three places, no fewer than 9 of our DS's swept the podium. However, hot favorites don't get big points in this game. As you can see above, outsider Pettachi with only 4 picks got 3.4 points for his 5th place, outscoring both Greipel and Goss. Thus, the best possible three picks today were Cav, Greipel and Petacchi. As the only DS with this exact combination, wannabe_scattista is our solo stage winner.

Our prior GC leader lt333 was one of the nine who swept the podium, an admirable defence of the casquette jaune.
