    Yeah, very good break for a flat stage, they should have enough nous to draw this out right to the line too unless OPQ shut it down early.

    ...actually, with Grabsch in there I assume he won't be doing much work so I don't give this break much hope.

    Annoyed with Van Hummel, but I've now officially given up on a decent placing, I was doing well and making up ground until yesterday when I threw it all away Angry

    That black CAAD10 frame looks very classy IMO. However, those bulky Di2 mechs look... stupid. Which begs the question: why no frame only CAAD10 option?? Crying Surely they would sell zillions - I would buy two if I could!

    I've never seen an exercise bike with a saddle I could spend 8 hours on. Good idea though, I wonder if they can do it in bits, like 2 hours a day?

    As for what convicts could be doing, they could be sorting the contents of bins for recycling and thus preventing the eyesore of four different bins outside everyone's house.

    Yes, they would complain about their human rights.

    Yup, gonna stay on his bike after the Champs-Elysees, ride home to Slovakia to wave hello to his family as he passes the house then turn round and head to London, arriving precisely as the flag drops for the road race.

    Apparently he thinks it's only fair to give the others a chance Wink

    But yeah, he's riding.

    Apparently, he's going to do the ride back to Solvakia on back wheel only - just for fun.

    I hadn't really thought about Sagan for the Olympics, mainly because he didn't quite blossom in the early season classics. But after his TdF form, you're both right - he's got to be in with a good shout.

    Chavanel is a good call too. Maybe a Cancellara, Sagan and Chavanel break will go up the road?

    Getting excited about it now! Should be a cracking race!

    Greipel - same as above + it's his birthday. Party
    Cavendish - was going to keep Goss, but he's stopped contesting int. sprints and I think Cav will get more points at the finish.
    Dumoulin - was planning to bring in Van Hummel, but he had abdominal pains yesterday.
    Arashiro - could finish top 20 today
    Simon - same as above
    Huguet - said something about being in the break today

    Like you said, it's just another way of running the game. Whatever transfer system is used it'd still have problems and people'd still complain Wink

    If you're after suggestions for next year though I'd still like to see fantasy jerseys (KoM, Sprint, Combative etc) in the grand tours and maybe some more functionality added to premium membership so it has more to offer than the chance to win a prize and some extra races (which, if the Tour of Poland is anything to go by are crap Devil). Something like teams of players (9 fantasy teams combined into a team) and a league for these available to premium users only. A built in purist team on your premium account or other options.
