Just a thought for an off-the-cuff contest for us forum types - each 'adopt' a rider currently rated 3.0, and track them through the season. Whichever rider has the highest aggregate fantasy points at the end of the final race of the season wins (or rather, the person who picked them does).

The deadline for picking has now passed, so here are your riders:

Ghedebrav: Matej Mohoric
ray sylvester: Fronk Schleck
drheaton: Riccardo Zoidl
NeilG83: Cristophe Kern
DylanChurchill: Caleb Ewan
stumps: Michael Hepburn
Dave Atkinson: Julian Alaphillipe
livestrongnick: Gabriel Rasch
enrique: Axel Domont
JAndrewHill: Janez Brajkovic
chiv30: Jesse Sergent
TERatcliffe26: Johan Esteban Chaves Rubio
giff77: Mikhail Ignatyev
plynie: Alexander Rybakov
Gizmo: Rick Zabel
Twybados: Lasse Norman Hansen
Timbo13: Sebastian Henao
chrisdstripes: Pierre-Henri Lecuisinier
backflipbedlam: Phillip Gaimon
turboprannet: Michael Kolar
leortp: Caleb Fairly
stevemarks: Jasha Sutterlin
debbieg: Nelson Oliviera
JohnnyRemo: Dennis Van Winden
Mikeh789: Nathan Earle
arkadiak: Campbell Flakemore

To be fair, that's cousin Henao, not *the* Henao.

I imagine cousin Quintana is also a 3.0

I think F. Schleck and Mohoric would be the best picks, but they have been taken so I'll go for Christophe Kern.

You may well lead after the TDU and then not score another point all season?

Hello everyone - happy new year! Nothing like a good forum comp to get things started. Its a toss-up between Lecuisinier, Alafaci and De Bie (can you have a toss-up between 3 people?) - so I'll go for the one with the best name - Pierre-Henri Lecuisinier.

No-one gone for Nathan Earle yet? A late replacement for Sutton in Sky's TDU squad.

Just to confirm....this is for the season and we have to locate our own rider's scores and claim them?

It certainly reads that way. Not going to be an easy task if they are participating in a lesser known race.

Think it'll just be fantasy points and you can easily find their year long score by viewing them in the game because they have "Total points (last 12 months)" listed in their profile.

Alternatively http://fantasy.road.cc/rankings shows a rolling 12 month score for all riders which can be used to find your rider scores.

Ghedebrav, any chance you can list the riders picked so we can avoid duplicate picks?
