5 antipodeans, 2 Spanish, 1 german 1 Slovenian. But I've tinkered 16 times so far that may change in the next three hours.

May not have picked Slovenian, may just want to imply I didn't pick Frank Schleck Wink

This is my first purist team and I've only picked three sprinters? Would you consider that to be a bit light?

I'd say that kind if depends whether they get dropped on Menglers tonight....if not you'll belight because they'll have the extra finish and competition points....but if they do then you'll be in credit because the allrounders/climbers will have all of the jersey comps sewn up early on

Antipodeans eh.....interesting....means you've probably got Bauer or Bennett

Same, basically I dropped kittel from my standard team for a GC contender.

I can't remember my purist team, but I do know it has at least 4/5 sprinters, and the rest GC guys, but may change that if the game will let me on!

Well my purist got me my first 1,2,3 of the season , not sure what happened in the race but that final hill must have thinned the field a bit as my sprinter heavy std team was a bust Waiting
