Having just looked over the provisional start list thats been released i'm looking forward to this one  36 even if it does cross over with the Giro.
Any idea when this will be open, please?

Yep, looks interesting, doesn't it? Wiggles is after being the new (clean) Lance Voldemort in the US, apparently, so one would expect him to go well.

Just checked out the profiles and they look good as well. If i'm not doing well in the Giro it might be a great race to mull over.

Is there scope for a 'pick three yanks' comp?

There are only 36 yanks riding so it might be a bit tight for picking 3 but its worth having a go.

How about doing it on a smaller budget? Say 30 credits?  39

Carter Jones 17.0
Thomas Zirbel 5.2
Peter stetina 4.7
26.9  26

Tough to go from the Giro budget to the ToC. Very different beast.

Purist is 4 Americans, 3 Brits and 2 Aussies. Sagan too expensive...

If there are enough for a Los Tres Yanquis comp, then I'll pile in. 30 space credits total would be sensible.

Nah, I would say 40 credits is ok. 30 riders means over 900 combinations.

I've seen Danny Von Poppel on the PCS and SteepHill startlists but he's grayed-out in the game... Guess I should have asked earlier, but, is he riding? I think I should have put him in...  2

No BMC Joel, Thor, Phin and GVA... I would say its Thors turn as he went well here last year, but I like phinney and he been very fast last 12 months(see oman,qatar etc) and he should go close in TT tom.

Useless if you're not using M$ - needs flash 11.9, not available for Linux. Also, just for fun it shows the warning message in black text on a black background - Hitchhiker's Guide?
