So we both picked Voeckler, Garate and Cunego, and both wish we'd picked Thomas?  I'm starting to like you  ;)

Just had a look at your team... we both picked Wiggo and Cav as well.  :-*

I should have been more careful with my choice of cheaper riders.
I think you'll find it's a bit more complicated than that.

Me too. Damn. Was trying to avoid seeing todays results as I watch the ITV highlights but the flaming Guardian put the story on its front page.

That's annoying about Wiggo and Garate, there go my hopes.  

Still, good news for me with EBH, Cav and Voeckler's stage wins [Err, I mean EBH and Cav's wins and Voeckler's yellow].  I do like a plucky Frenchman  :thumbsup:

Who are people's best and worst riders so far?  as of today (the points last updated after stage 8 I think) mine are:-

Best: Philippe Gilbert - 711
Worst: Sylvain Chavanel - 0
You are in a maze of twisty flat droves, all alike.

Cav - 439

Three of mine still on zero:

Cyril DESSEL
Kristjan KOREN
Cyril LEMOINE

Next year I will build a more balanced squad :)

Garate and Chavanel are both on zero points for me. Chavanel is having appalling luck this season.

Top rider for me by a mile is Cadel on 773 points.

Next year, I won't pick Cancellara. Not sure why I picked him this time, tbh.

Next year you should at least aim to select riders who are taking part.

Really should have paid more attention with the domestiques shouldn't I. I just clicked some random cheap ones  :)

Does anyone still have a full complement of nine riders in their team?

I think mine are all still riding, not that its got me a great spot in the ranking.
Cav is my clear winner so far; Gadret, Porte and Arroyo aren't covering themselves in glory yet. Sanchez in 2nd overall isn't what you'd call high scoring either.
I'd make a claim about my team being a long game with an eye to the mountains, but I fear that they'd all turn into fat asthmatics overnight if I did that.

Cav: 439
Kreuziger : 6

I'm hoping that Mr Kreuziger will do something in the mountains. I originally got him to win KOM, but he seems to have been beaten by gravity this year.

edit. Only 2 riders under 100 and only 4 under 200. A pretty good spread I think!

3 riders between 2-300, 1 rider in the hundreds the rest are pure crap, including Chavanel on 0 point  :-X

Just heard Cunego being interviewed on Eurosport. He's in combative mood, from the sound of it. About flipping time - been quiet so far, I could do with him starting to pick up a few points.

This isn't going too well.

My highest scoring rider is Frank Schleck.

My riders keep crashing out of the tour. Epic fail!
I almost feel I jinxed them by picking them  :-X
