I put a rider in my team at 19:08 last night.
That's a couple of hours after the first stage had been scored.
This evening I find that the rider I had put in wasn't even in the startlist.
The response I get is that it is my duty to check that the rider is racing. Let's not forget that this particular rider was on the road.cc roster as available to put in my squad last night, and until 17:30pm this afternoon he was still there.
So, for 30 ish hours after the race has started, this rider could be put into teams, even though he didn't start the first stage.
I personally think that this is not right and that I should get that wasted transfer back.
The alternative, of course, is every time I want to add a rider, no matter when during a race I want to add them, that I check against the official startlist that he is actually racing. That could become a bit laborious.
