Going to join, but spending far too long deciding on the team... does anyone know what sort of shape Cav is in?

I've picked Jack Bauer again. He's sh!te but he's got the name.

Me too. It gets difficult with those 4 pointers.
I also chose Pinot again although he let me down badly last year. Probably got too many Giro miles in those legs. Might nip over an re-tweak the team.

Joint effort from my son and I. Neither of us has a clue on form or tactics but we know who we like right up until we run out of money then we take the cheapest.

I looked at the table yday and felt very smug about my chances, especially after I'd swapped out Valverde in favour of 2 sprinters at the last minute. Then was less smug once old Pete got DQ'd.

Then I wondered, hands up who actually didn't have Sagan in their team?!

With Valverde and Sagan gone it doesn't look too good for me Laughing

But as you say a lot at the top all had Sagan he was the obvious choice but my back up gamble of Valverde will certainly not pay off.


This is a stupid game anyway Laughing

No Sagan, no Cav but I do have Greipel and Kittel....... I am also quite smug, and will remain so until they hit the hills.

This sort of makes up for having picked Valverde Rolling Eyes

Anyone know what happened to dekenkob (sp?)

He was my wild card but went down hard after failing to bunny hop Cav Laughing

With the whoohaa over Cav and Sagan he seems to have gone Awol from the Commentary!

No Sagan, no Valverde and no Cav for me. Maybe this could go well?

No Sagan and my Porte gamble to buy me some extra credits has now also failed to come off! Well actually he did indeed come off, but not in the way i needed!

Greipel needs to pull his finger out and actually win a stage as i'm getting a lot of 2nds and 3rds. Same as Warren Barguil (caught a few kms out the other day and 2nd yesterday!).

I think my only hope to stop anyone with Froome in their tean from just chugging away is for Aru to have a blinder.

Anyone with an FDJ rider in their team is likely to find their squad depleted for the next stage after 4 FDJ riders missed the time limit yesterday and were eliminated Shocked
