Want to see what the 'Within Budget' Dream Team for today's stage looks like? See below...
After my rant, I decided it'd be fun to see what the Top 10 riders could be tomorrow, so here's my Dream Team for tomorrow's Stage 1... Of course, it's a Dream Top 10 so there are no budget restrictions ...
29.7 Tony Martin Omega Pharma - Quick-Step
37.8 Michal Kwiatkowski Omega Pharma - Quick-Step
40.0 Christopher Froome Team Sky
28.9 Richie Porte Team Sky
20.4 Rohan Dennis Garmin Sharp
12.1 Michael Hepburn Orica Greenedge
20.1 Jean-Christophe Peraud AG2R La Mondiale
28.8 Tejay Van Garderen BMC Racing Team
23.2 Andrew Talansky Garmin Sharp
13.7 Brett Lancaster Orica Greenedge
If you think you can create a higher scoring Dream Team, feel free to post your Top 10 team below. This could be fun!
First, I hate prologues. They're so diffficult to predict. Will Froome come out charging and try to take the leader's jersey outright? Is he in good shape? Yuck. I wish I could put in 5 different teams. Will Stage 1 be ridden hard enough to get rid of all but the GC contenders? Is Porte going to make sacrifices or stick around for a good GC position? Will Kittel come through for more than one Top 20 placing? All of this, of course, could be made much simpler if we got a budget of 200 points Or (!) if we got 4 transfers a day! Can Kwiatkowski come through for a Top 10 placing on Stage 3? Will Voeckler go on a raid on Stage 3? Will Jens? Ugh. I hate this game sometimes.. But I love the people here and how sensitive they are to my emotional issues Dave should come up with another version of the game where you could buy more transfers with cash, not game points ... That way you could make all the transfers you want but it wouldn't affect your score And he'd get rich! But then I couldn't afford that either! Or maybe once in the competition you could 'borrow' future transfers with no penalty... Sometimes I think race organizers are so inconsiderate to Fantasy Cycling players! Why can't they have the 2 'Sprint' stages in a row, so we can save on transfers? Damned incosiderate people! They put no thought into the Fantasy Cycling fans! This is hard!
