Hi there,

Just wondering when we'll be able to pick our teams for KBK? I'm going bush this weekend, away from the interwebs, so Friday arvo (Sydney time) is my last chance to get a team in.

Can we get some sort of rider list up before then? Thanks!

As is in the same competition as Omloop,you wont be able to pick your team for KBK until after the deadline for Omloop has passed which is 9am UK time on saturday morning.

However whatever team you pick for Omloop will roll forward as your KBK team if you make no changes

Does that mean if you fail to set a team it will run with your Omloop team as if you made no changes between stages in a Tour?

Correct Ray (unless I have cocked up my thinking somewhere) as they are effectively set up on the system as 12 stages, with unlimited transfers between them (so your team rolls forward, as they are in the same competition). As we manually select the number of transfers between a stage, as you may remember last year in qatar in error unlimited had been selected for the last stage by mistake

actually, a lot of the teams have very similar startlists for both races, so I've just picked riders who seem to be going in both races

I see Kevin Peeters (Vastgoedservice - Golde) and Boris Dron (Wallonie - Bruxelles) on the PCS startlist for Kuurne but they're not in the game. If they're riding could you add them? Thanks.

Kevin Peeters (Vastgoedservice - Golde) is now appearing twice in the game. One profile with a photo another without. Can we pick either, just in case he scores?  39

Id pick either, and then can amend with scores if necessary, as I don't want to remove one for people to have already picked the one I remove

I think I went too sprinty today, but having said that if its not a sprint then anyone could be up there, so a risk worth taking I hope. Went for the tactic of 140 credits on 6 strong sprinters, and anything from the 3 cheapsters is a bonus.

Both teams
Greipel
Demare
Kristoff
Boonen
Coquard
Napolitano (Markus in purist)
Planckaert
Koretzky
R Kreder

I'll be honest , as last year's kbk was cancelled I don't really have a clue based on previous years so gone with form guys that don't mind it slightly lumpy

Yes, I've never actually seen this race either. I get the impression its lumpy in the middle but with a fairly flat run-in for it to potentially come back together. Most of my sprinters are actually fairly strong, rouleurs-of-the-future anyway I think, so hopefully they'll make it to the end...

Both teams: Demare, Boonen, Greipel, Coquard, Jans, Kristoff, Planckaert

Don't know whether Belkin will go with Hofland or Markus for the sprint so put one in each team

Then a couple of 3.0 riders, Van Asbroeack (TSV) and Corbel (BSE)

I bloody hope its a bunch sprint
