I think Moreno's a DNS Joel....caught it just before the window closed and managed to swap him.

Thought id took Moreno out of the game when I updated last night?

He was greyed out in my team when I logged on this morning so it's more than likely you did.

Definitely did. I searched for him and he wasn't available.

Ahhh thats ok then, updated pretty much when I got in from work, as they only released the full startlist yesterday at some point

Oh and just for Enrique as he loves PCS, there startlist was incorrect as of when I went to bed last night, but was updated in time for the deadline, but the game would have had the wrong riders had I used them

Also i may have forgot to send the roster update emails last night Thinking

Looks like it will all go down to finish line points then, with it 99% likely now that Txurruka will be the only breakaway scorer

Gah, Gilbert Angry

Convinced he just hates my fantasy team; every time I pick him he does as badly as possible.

Bloody weird rider he is. Total law unto himself.

1,3,4,7,9,14 - pretty pleased for what little effort I put in. Should've had Mollema over Meersman to be in with a shout.

A fair few off, you can add up how many I changed in the roster changes thread. I just used the official startlist

So did you use PCS to get the first pass game start list up and then used the official one once that was out?...

Used the official for both, used the initial official one (which is why Kreuziger was on) and then as it showed updates throughout the week. They just did a full update for riders yesterday. I was just curious how up to date PCS had been

Damn.....had all of the correct riders except Mollema.....even had the breakman....only problem was I split them across my two teams.

Imagine seeing the result and struggling to remember the configuration of teams!!

If I'd have had Gallopin and Gilbert,Stybar and Navardauskas,Txurruka and Landa,Kolobnev and Albasini plus Zubeldia and Irizar the other way around 'I Cudda beena contendah'!!
