Purist:Navardauskas,Valverde,Albasini,Irizar,Visconti,Nieve,J-Rod,Landa,Gilbert

I've gone for quite a few riders coming out of the TDF hoping that they've got 'Tour Strength' still in their legs rather than using this as a 'warm-down'.

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

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

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  39

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  14

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.

Gee... I'm so disappointed... I trust them so much... I shall have a word with them... This is unacceptable... How many riders were they off?.... 4? 5? 10? A lot?... Wow... How sad...  22 So whose start list did you end up using?...

Why am I so bad at one-day races? Hmmm. Point for improvement next year, I think.  39

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.

Well that was pretty poor - my team, not the race.

4 and 8 plus however many Txurruka gets. Onto Poland  102
