Fantasy Vuelta? 684230628 (velogames.com)


#1682

is this velogames or the shit one


#1683

velogames


#1684

ASO own the Vuelta, so surprised this is still running.


#1685

Think yer man’s come to a deal with them. Site’s full of disclaimers. GOOD though, love me some velogames.


#1686

I missed this so I hope I’m not too late.

This book is a really good primer on racing dynamics / tactics:


#1687

Is it? Thought it was more around setting the scene around some epic TdF stages and the people involved. Still a good read even though it’s by Richard Moore


#1688

Yep. Really made loads of things fall in place for me a couple of years ago when I read it.


#1689

Excellent, thanks! I’ll stick that on the list!


#1690

Not a particularly well-kept secret, but this is the absolute dog’s danglies of news today :mage:

#1691

yes mate! :smiley:


#1692

what’s your beef with richard moore all of a sudden?


#1693

GUYYYSSS


#1694

Never really been a particular fan tbh (that etape book is good though), and seems to have made a tidy living out of perpetuating Sky myths and is also the weakest of the TCP lot imo


#1695

moore > friebe > birnie


#1696

Tommazeau > Friebe > Birnie > Moore


#1697

aw yeah tommazeau is pretty good.

moore is good at chairing it. the few times he’s not there it feels well amateurish and clunky.


#1698

Saw this v. Expensive book in a magazine yesterday

Looks quite pretty eh.


#1699

Oh just seen there’s a less expensive version for £40


#1700

Yeah, always had him down more as the presenter/chair than a journalist on TCP. Plucks out opposing viewpoints and lets the other two whinge about stuff.
