Thank you. It's nice to have a couple of days to try out different combinations. Must say I really enjoy the feel of a 150 budget!  4

Hmmm... Is Boonen in?  39 I'm surprised he's not on the PCS start list...  39

The issue was just that some of the teams were loaded in, but they are in, so just waiting on a proper startlist

OPQS just announced Boonen's girlfriend has had a miscarriage so he is no longer taking part in MSR.

Right, everyone is keeping their cards close to their chest for this race it seems! I'll start then.

Very tough to pick a team for this race (less climbs this year but it's always unpredictable). Not sure whether to go for all-out sprinters or go for a mix of sprinters and classics specialists (that finish well even in sprints). Very hard and lots of riders are quite expensive as well  102

So far I have 2 dedicated sprinters, 4 classics riders, 1 um...classics/sprinter, 1 former classics rider (good value for money), and 1 random. I'll name one name: Sagan. He just doesn't want to fit in my team without me sacrificing the quality of a few of my other riders...

Is it better having 2 semi-decent classics specialists than going for another sprinter and a cheaper rider??? Decisions decisions. I think my second team will be very different - maybe I can find Sagan some team mates  17

I'm having the same dilemma with Sagan - he should go well but could get two riders who might also go well for the same outlay...  39

I don't think you'll be able to win without Sagan on your team! Unless he comes in 4th or lower... What a dilemma!

Hopefully people get their emails, some people have 3 riders that I've just removed from the startlist  103

Gerro was in my purist. Replaced by Cancellara (who was originally in neither of my teams).

Super strong field, always a tough race to predict. Perhaps unwisely I'm going against the bookies and picking Greipel over Cav for my standard. Sagan in purist only (but got five very strong contenders instead in standard - as long as it comes down to a sprint).

No more tinkering for me, by the way. Doing the Sport Relief thing tomorrow, so will be up early doors. The hailstorm I can hear outside my window does not bode well for what should've been a straightforward 50-mile jaunt...

Well i've gone with the weather forecast and gone classic/AR riders no sprinters!  35

Seems to me that OPQ are the only team set up for a convincing sprint finish but im not convinced, hoping for the same kinda out come as last year  39

This should be good entertainment.....The OPQS train will have everybody running scared and there should be some pretty exciting lung-bursting, leg-knackering shanannigans to try and derail it....... Let the lottery begin.....I would not be confident of picking the winner if I could pick 20 riders...  1
