Three spaniards?
That's probably more than I'll have in my regular team throughout the race!

Who are you going to pair him up with when he's at 40.0 credits?... Waiting

I'm just curious to see whether they will manage to make more points together than Purito alone...

Sammy Sanchez will probably get into double figures by the end

I may also add in a 'Tribute to Gkam' team of the three cheapest Spanish riders - I think that's Fernandez, Mas and Reynes.

Incidentally, so far I think Gmancervelo has entered the best team... Nerd

Then maybe Twybados? I reckon Landa will do well (though I still haven't included him in my Purist Thinking )

The value on your 3 Spaniards is 59 credits. Total value must be less than 50.

My three Spaniards are;

Daniel Moreno - 25.8
Luis Leon Sanchez - 10.4
Daniel Navarro - 13.6

Yah, you're all in.

BTW, Jonas Lorenzen - you've got until noon TOMORROW to swap out one of your team for another, otherwise I'll drop Purito for Mas on your behalf Big Grin

EDIT: I've put in Aramendia for Purito, who is the most expensive player that can fit in.

Enrique, thank you for the scores. You gave me happy news. I entered my 3 Spanish guys just to see whether 3 good riders, designated leaders in their teams (S Sanchez, Navarro and Pardilla), can make more points in this race than J Rod alone. After stage 6 my lads finally turned the tables on him, and they lead him 54 to 53. Party Obviously, J Rod hit back in stage 7, but it's far from over... Anyway, as of right now, I'm glad I didn't think to have my brave lads measure themselves against Valverde...

And it keeps getting better! And better! And better for you! How much better can it get? If Valverde stays with the others in all the next stages, it's too hard to imagine that someone will overtake him! Unbelievable! I thought choosing Valverde was a foolish propositon at first, now, well you're a Pick3 Spaniards Fantasy Cycling God! Smile He may be uncatchable! Nice job! Smile

I just seem to be better/luckier at this game than the real one.
After all I got lucky with the tdf too.
