My team are up against it trying to gain the 2nd promotional slot so I can be promoted to level 3 from level 4.
The top team are way out ahead and their riders are far superior to mine my nearest rival. He therefore grabs all the top slots, winning most of the stages and all of the tours. We (2nd and 3rd) are scrabbling for the scraps therefore.
His (2nd position nearest rival) tactics have been to go for individual races and stage wins. My (3rd position currently) tactics have been to go for best I can do in GC and the odd mountain points or sprint points competition win (or high placed position). My nearest rival has slowly gained on me through the season and has now past me by about 100 points.
I am keen to re-gain 2nd slot (promotional slot) and wondered how the divisional points work in races and tours? For example is better to get a stage win but low GC ranking or better to get a 4th or 5th and not bother to get stage wins? How low do the points go in GC?
I believe me and my nearest rival are very equal in rider ability.
