Need to remember the valuable lesson I learned last year…now what was it?!

Hmmm. Where to start with this one!? I can’t even decide on my first rider, letalone who should be my key GC man.

I did really well in the Giro. Not sure why, but think i’m going to bomb on this one! :rofl:

edit - ok i’m in. First draft done. I’m not bothering with trying to be all tactical with my credits, i cba. But i’ll use them if any of my key riders are totally bombing or crash i think.

Team provisionally selected. Odd to see Chris Froome ranked as worth 9ts!

Pogacar or Roglic? Roglic must be coming back with a renewed fire after last year, but not seen much of him this year. He will be fresh, but is he race ready. Tricky decisions.

No Cav either? I thought he was looking good and likely to be picked. Guess not

Only if Bennett didn’t recover from his injury. Bennett was always the first pick i believe.

@iwaters

WRONG!! :rofl: (well i was right in my reasons, but Bennett hasn’t recovered)

Cav has just been announced in the squad

Excellent. Love a bit of Cav. Even if he doesnt do well in the race he is good for entertainment

Same format as the Giro where you select a team and it’s done?

I seem to remember captains being decided daily last year?

Yeah - captain earns double points that day.

You also have a few hundred ‘credits’. It costs 50 credits to swap a rider out. So up to you if you just select and leave it … but the like of @poet will clearly be swapping in and out depending on the parcours for the next few days e.g. Caleb Ewan out after a week when he cries off home after a stage win.

Yes remembering to select the correct road captain each day can make or break your scoring

Yup. Personally i prefer the one and done way of doing it. That way you have to roll with the road. If your team DNF due to crashes, sorry. Tough luck.

That will save me a few quid then. Who is the dominant sprinter now?

What’s the etiquette on race discussion - are we doing it on here?

Mark Padrun out - clearly the kryptonite was glowing too brightly to put him in another race… :wink:

Having fluked the Giro I’m going to pick my ‘personalities to win’ team again, rather than my ‘I think they are the best’ team.

a - it saves a lot of research time and head scratching
b - it’s more fun
c - picking Cavendish as my sprinter over Caleb means I’m screwed

Didn’t Cav beat Caleb in a sprint the other day?

One can always hope. :slight_smile:

I can’t believe Cav will cut the mustard when everyone brings their A game but surprises do happen
