by enrique   March 14, 2014  

And the big mountains are here! Finally! the showdown between Quintana and Froome won't materialize, but he'll probably have his hands full with Contador, Kwiatkowski, Uran and Porte! Smile Hopefully Evans and Horner will come out to play, too!" Smile

Was tough to choose, I decided to risk omitting Kwia, as most people will have him. He's in my purists anyway, and I'm quite optimistic about them.

STD (1 penalty transfer)
Uran
Contador
Quintana
Kiserlovski (my random shot, couldn't quite afford Pozzo)
Santaromita
Arredondo
Teklehambleblast
Nuyens and Goos

Not ruling out more from Mr Horner tho...

Guess who kissed the transfer deadline...

I guess it would be unethical of me to move it so that I could make my changes? Big Grin

I'm having deja vu with Tirreno Adriatico Crying I have a team with 5 (!) 3.0 riders in it, a la Le Tour 2013! Crying

*Sigh!* I feel like Steve did last year:

just with 4 men Sad

Then again, he also did (!) offer this (!) gem:

The only thing... I think would massively improve the playing experience of this game is an optional, 'Hide Enrique Button', for which I would happily pay another tenner.... As Carlsberg would say, "Probably the best tenner that a man could ever spend."

Big Grin Good one, Steve! Big Grin

This is getting ever trickier for the last couple of stages. A sprint and an ITT.
