Thanks Oaky. I'll have a look later in the week - I don't imagine all the rosters have been settled yet.

It looks particularly tricky to pick from the top 4 favourites this year.

I'm waiting for the riders available to be the same as the start list

Tom Dumoulin is missing for example

Yesterday I scored a big fat zero. However, today Gripel bagged me 200 points for the stage win & I got some extra points for Kwiatkowski, Rogers & Rowe. Quintana, Nibali & Rodriguez better make amends for their performance in the mountains!
What on earth am I doing here on this beautiful day?! This is the only life I've got!!

I'm quite pleased with 6th place.

I'm very disappointed by my second-from-bottom.  1 DNF was to be expected, but to have - in addition - one of my team quit because his wife was having a baby,another disqualified for getting a lift up a hill in a rival team's car, and my main sprinter having to ride 17 stages recovering from badly bruised ribs was a bit of a bugger.

The DS of Marsh Gibbon Pro Cycling was sorely tempted to quietly delete the whole thread ;)

I find it helps if nearly all of your team stay upright throughout the tour. And if they win it that helps too.

I can't believe I made the podium! I spent most of the race mid-table mediocrity  :)

The trick is to pick riders that complete the bloody race, not disappear in tears with broken bits after pathetic crashes! Stupid game, anyway.

Yes, I came last. What of it? ;D
