Well, to be fair, I didn't know about it either, but he isn't on my team. My research amounted to "have I heard of this guy? yes!" apart from Sagan who I read about for about 5 minutes.

You witnessed me doing my careful research ... on Wikipedia  ;D

I tend to pick people I like.  At least this year they all started and all of them have got me some points.
I think you'll find it's a bit more complicated than that.

Well done Mr Bunbury, though Citoyen was running you close by the end.  My flops were Leipheimer (what was I thinking?) and Iglinsky.  Shame about Kittel but I'm sure most teams had abandonments.  Velits P redeemed himself a little in the TT.  I must read the scoring system next time - Jurgen VdB only 528 points?

I think it's only updated as far as the TT.  There should be mega points handed out for the overall results whenever it gets updated, maybe tomorrow.

I certainly hope so, as I've been beaten into 2nd and 3rd in the other leagues I'm playing, so I'm hoping the final results will reverse that!

How many riders did people finish with?  I had fie left at the finish, I think:-

Wiggins #1
Taaramae #36
Froome #2
Cav #142 ;)
Casar #22

Most of the rest were lost by stage 7 -

Astarloza - stage 6
Freire - stage 7
Hesjedal - Stage 7

With Mollema lasting past halfway...

Mollema - Stage 11


You are in a maze of twisty flat droves, all alike.

Oh yes, I'm second to the appropriately named team of Bradders and Cav.  Of course, I selected the team understanding the scoring system perfectly.

Unbefrickinglieveable!  I wear the yellow jersey for the entire tour and then get beaten into fourth place on the Champs Elysees!  I thought that the last day was meant to be a procession? 

Oh well, I won last year so I suppose I really needed to let someone else have a turn  :P

 ;D

Tejay and Van Den Broeck turned out to be my most inspired choices, but then "Bradders and Cav" and "No Limits" had both of them too, plus Froome...

Foolishly, I went for EBH as my second Sky pick instead, thinking Froome would have been used up by the end of the mountain stages.
