I suspect I'm being thick, but where's the "pick your team" link? I can see rules, lists of riders etc.

Yes, I'm registered as perpetualdan and joined in before, but can't see the "enter a team" link.

I'm in, representing a certain banned Spanish rider.  For some odd reason he's decided to race in Rapha Condor kit this time.

I've got Sagan and Cav to look after the sprints, Wiggo to win the GC and Tony Martin and Spartacus to top up my TT points.  Apart from that, hopefully EBH will be let loose to win a stage - or at least he will if Brad goes out of contention.  You could say he's my insurance policy.

Ah, now I see it, the big button with red around it.  :-[  I was looking for a link in the text.

I'm in as VC Ostrica.

Had a look at some of my rival teams and keep seeing riders I wish I'd picked. But then I wouldn't know who to drop from my team to accommodate them... this is almost as difficult as actually riding the race.

...and to think I'd considered the name "Ass-tana" but decided it was crude.

I'll hopefully bump into you in Liege, where I fully intend to be wearing the YACF yellow jersey by the end of the day.  Fingers crossed.

16 team, 15 with Wiggins

Or maybe 16 by the start.

16 team, 15 with Wiggins

I had a quiet spell at work yesterday afternoon, so I did a bit of statistical analysis of the team selections. There were only 14 teams then, 13 with Wiggins. More interestingly, there were only two with Evans (Gus being one of them, of course).

I'll update the stats and post them later if anyone is as sad as me interested.

I think the riders are too cheap this year.  A lot of the teams have the same names popping up, because everyone's selecting all the best riders.  Where else could I get Wiggo, Cav, Peter Sagan, Spartacus, EBH and Tony Martin in a team together?  I'm not sure even Sky's budget could stretch to all the riders in Team Audaxtanta.

I had Wiggo on my team at first, but discovered everyone else had him so I picked Hejsedal instead. I still might last minute adjustments
since all teams still haven't named their line up.

I'm hoping mine don't go the way of every horse I ever bet on for the national, or there'll be a lot of cyclists heading to the glue factory tomorrow morning.
