Any chance of some extra transfers tonight?

My new team got zapped along with everyone else, but I wasn't online yesterday, so didn't know about the issues.

It was 5 to 11 when I looked this morning, and I now only have ONE rider.

I'm sure I'm not alone.

I know the feeling. Updating on iphone last night and watching Cunego's mind bending descent I remembered with satisfaction that I'd chosen him for GC. Checked the web and found my team all zeroed! In my panic to restore some sort of team I managed to balls it up and not select a GC rider at all.  2

Hey ho.

As for extra transfers. If you look in the Road.CC rules and regulations 4.61 it clearly states: "If you are sad enough to take this competition seriously you will have to take the rough with the smooth and content yourself with the certain knowledge that at least the top ten players have no life and probably aren't even getting out on the bike."

I'm not bitter. Well - perhaps a little bit.

Same happened here, whoever I had transferred into my team, seemed to have been undone and merged with my Criterium De Dauphine team, so I have a lot of riders not riding, and somehow, Andre Greipel?!

Help help help!

You transferred Greipel in at GMT: Sun, 12 Jun 2011 05:33:46 for the last stage of the Dauphiné. I can't be held responsible for that  1

In a perfect world we'd all sing in tune . .but this is reality, give us some room ( Billy Bragg )... I moved my cyclists sunday too - Ouch ! Can we be quite clear and have assurances that prior to the TDF we will have an opportunity to re-shuffle, change, update, draft-in ,merge, and or buy a full team of 9 x riders, 'cos my current team of THREE ain't gonna win Zilch in Zurich.  20

At silly o'clock this morning just before heading off to work, I thought I'd mess with my team -was it just the Road CC server playing up or was it the top ten boys just hacking the system again. You decide .

Look at the stage listings, there's an unlimited transfer window before the Tour, as there was always going to be, and as is the normal practice between tours.

Do you mean you only have three riders, or only three active riders? I know some people got caught by the server problems and thus had incomplete teams, but this should have been solved when teams were reset to the end of the Dauphiné on Monday morning. If you have 9 riders but 6 are greyed out, you can transfer across over the next few days.

Probably we'll just run either the TDS or the DL next year, as it's a touch confusing whichever way you split it up...

I wouldn't be so quick to judge Dave - it actually would have been okay if not for the unfortunate timing of the server outage(s), and the unlimited transfers thing. However it has been confusing, as you say, and the purists are all up sh*t creek. A (planned) unlimited transfer window at either end of the crossover might have worked quite nicely?

i'm still currently 'transferring' my Dauphine libere 2011 squad for riders actually in the next race. It's taken me 3 days so far and i still haven't got a full squad! Lost points and no reply back from support after my team could not be re-picked for the next race. Should have a full squad by Saturday  39

I don't think I will win the overall now...  20 20 20 20

Ok, I admit it Dave, I was miles behind already.
