My team

Rafal Majka (TSB)
Tejay Van Garderen (BMC)
Thomas Danielson (GRS)
Jens Voigt (TFR)
Leopold Konig (TNE)
Graham Briggs (RCJ)
Hugh Carthy (RCJ)
Patrick Konrad (TNE)
Jure Kocjan (TSS)

Decided to go for Jens in his last race, he's gonna go one day.

The main protagonists as it was too hard to call stage 1, but stage 2 and 3 should be GCers. Then a few youngsters who look like value and have got a few results.

Viviani and Cantwell the sprinters

Carthy,Kocjan and Rosskopf the CN picks

Tejay,Magicman,RickyZee,LionKing the GC guys

PURIST

The race itself is set to start at 2:40 PM MT, which would be 9:40pm London time, I think... About 2 hours and 20 minutes from now...

Results seem abit of a mess on the official site, as they have Formolo and Kiserlovski as riding. 100% certain Kiserlovski isn't riding and pretty certain neither is formolo, seems they have just subbed in the riders from the provisional list into there results. Oh and Beltran is in the results twice

Anyway scores going up as I don't think there results affect what we score and are correct as far as they go

Hmmm... You know you aren't too good at picking for a race when your purist significantly outscores your standard on day one! Still, had Reijnen in both, so not all doom and gloom.
