Nothing for me since TDU, one reason I went for Lecuisinier is for the amount of potential for 5-point bonuses from Bouhanni and Demare, but no stage wins from Demare in Algarve unfortunately...

Let's hope so.......he'll be a real asset in any prologue

No scorers in Kuurne-Bruxelles-Kuurne

Lools like F.Schleck and Mohoric are pencilled in for Paris-Nice,Zoidl for Strade Bianche and Brajkovic for Roma Maxima.

My guy hasn't even raced yet (although put up a decent showing in Langkawi). Was hoping he would ride TA but nevermind, looks like he will ride Catalunya though.

Yes, Zoidl is buggered and so are my chances of winning this thing unless he comes back with a storming Vuelta or something like that.

Alaphillipe has got 62 points from the last two days which would put him on 73 overall, one behind Zoidl.

And Lasse Norman Hansen is again in a race we aren't doing Crying

My boy Zoidl is back on his bike, not sure what his program is like for the rest of the season but hoping he rides at least one GT and maybe targets something like the Tour of Poland or ENECO tour.
