Can we really pick our teams for the FW the day after the race? Or do you know something the UCI and Eurosport don't? Please could you confirm when on (presumably) Wednesday the transfer deadline actually is.

Cheers,
Simon

I must say the limits on transfers are very challenging. I've only got 5 riders for tomorrow and I even had to waste a spot by swapping one non-runner for another non-runner just to free up the funds.

Not a complaint - I just hope we're all in a similar boat.

yup, 5 for me, must be the limit for thid one. Thought about keeping some back for the next race to see if they carried over, but bottled it!

With people complaining about 'inaccuracies' in the road.cc designated start list... it makes sense to let everyone do there own research, rather than publishing a list that is liable to change at any point... that way each player is master of their own (teams) destiny. Plus, it will save Dave, Tony et al a lot of time... I am sure they are working hard enough as it is already!

we will continue to do the start lists and they'll mostly be correct. if you want to back that up with some research of your own, that's definitely an advantage.

bear in mind that this is only really an issue for the one-day races, once we get to the Giro the roster won't change appreciably from day to day.

Right, quick question, Had a few riders up in the top 10 this time, very happy with my picks because i only had 6 riders today

I had Vanendert, so does that mean, i get his points plus 5 because Gilbert won?

Boost, could be a decent scorer this time round, now on to the weekend, its not so bad because its mostly the same riders, so i should be able to field a 9 strong team

Vino was 4th. Eurosport called Andy Schleck as 4th at the end of the race (it was wrong on our race report too for a while) but in fact he rolled in well down the field.

I dont know if you have finished with your points, but i'm getting 0 points for Andy Schleck and he finished 4th  17

Looking at others, Vinokourov seems to be getting 17 even though he wasn't in the top 10

1. Philippe Gilbert
2. Joaquim Rodriguez
3. Samuel Sanchez
4. Andy Schleck
5. Igor Anton
6. Jelle Vanendert
7. Frank Schleck
8. Daniel Moreno Fernandez
9 Christophe Le Mevel
10 Paul Martens

they're the race organisers though, so that's the one that counts. Watch the vid: vino is clearly fourth.

Have to laugh tho, just checked eurosport, still listing Andy as fourth, but if you watch the video, they call Vino as fourth

My stage-by-stage points, in order:

64, 50, 47, 38, 24, 21

At least my trajectory is consistent  4

I’m a bit worried though that according to my current projections, at some point in the first week of the Giro I’ll get negative points, and dip increasingly into the red as the season goes on…  39

Forgot to make any transfers today. Couldn't catch up on the race as Eurosport once again wants to carry on with Tennis/Tiddly Winks or in this case two blokes in waistcoats stood around a table. But what do I find? Leaving my team as it was gained me another 44 points anyway. : )

Reminds me of the time last summer I missed 4 days of Fantasy Cycle action to go and actually ride the Tourmalet myself to come back and find my team doing just dandy without my anxious tweaking.

To compound my guilt I'm in the top 20% even though I didn't realise there were 2 rider called S.Chavanel until last week...
