Well crud. Other than one last man from the stinking breakaway, I had Stage 16 pretty well nailed. I don't think I'm going to get to 42 points.

29 points - woot for 5 on a breakaway day! I might still get to 42 with the jerseys.

31 points. I'll get 4 for Nibali and 5 for Moncoutié tomorrow, and I think 4 for Nibali again (second on the stage moved him up in a rank in the points classification, which should make him first in the combo classification. Just GC guys {and Gilbert} below him, so tomorrow's sprint won't upset him), so I should hit the magic number after all I kind of like this points system.

Nice - Okay, I'll play along for the rest of the year if you set it up!

Final total is 44 points. Given how unpredictable bike racing really is, I do think getting >1/3 is pretty good.

For Lombardy? Hmm k, you want Cunego or Gilbert? :p Seriously though, it works better for the GT's.

And note to Denis Menchov: Ride ONE Grand Tour next year. Whichever it is, make it your one. Or maybe Giro/Vuelta. He's proven he can't recover fast enough when the Tour is involved, as either his first or second Grand Tour of the season.

2009: wins the Giro, 51st in the Tour
2010: third in the Tour (and one missed break away from maybe winning it), 41st in the Vuelta (behind such aces as Marco Marzano, Kanstantsin Siutsou, and Johannes Frohlinger - even GT greenhorn Tejay van Garderen finished better than Menchov. Yeesh)
