How did you manage that?
I picked a cheap GC contender who is likely to ride in the next classic. . . I hope . . and then picked loads of good quality AR and DS riders. . . . as well as Cav

Hmm… I'm not sure it will be, but it is interesting that the system allowed you to take the 5th domestique cos it shouldn't have.

We have been talking about changing things regarding picking domestiques in the classics and one day races, but we'll probably try that later in the year rather than in the middle of this competition.

Dave is off on checking out the new Dragon Ride sportive route today, but he should be back later so he'll be able to say more on the ins and outs of all this.

nope, it shouldn't have. that was down to a bug in the system, sorry... bug now fixed.

i'd switch out the extra domestique for a GC rider if i were you (i'm assuming it's a GC you haven't picked) as the script that checks whether your team is valid (and awards you points) won't validate your team. sorry...
