well with the quick turnaround for this one

the info i have suggests that the current rider list is incorrect compared to the actual startlist, anyone got any more info on this?

Well if the start list to other races this weekend is anything to go by it will be ALL wrong, i watched a bit of the Paris Brussels, and it flashed up on someone who crashed that it was Jan Bakelants  19

well cycling news and cycling startlists are different to cycling fever (which i presume is where dave got the list from)

As i want a certain OPL rider in my team that isnt on the startlist dave has put up but is on the other

The OPL team that is currently on the game database is exactly the same as the one on the official start list we were emailed by race organisers just before 11pm BST yesterday evening.

That suggests that the source with the other OPL rider you mention doesn't have up to date info.

I was tempted with Edward King because it was listed as King Edward, but i know a bit about Ben King, He's cleaned up most of the American championships as he's come through the juniors and U23 and won the Elite last year

Gautier and Gallopin for a break, Rojas, Gilbert Uran and Eddy Boss to commence battle again  4

not bad for 3 minutes, i think most will have gesink, uran and gilbert (was too much of a gamble to go any different despite there 1,2,3 the other night, no doubt Gkam will have gambled) yh i had more time and made consideration on my DS's which could make the difference but we shall see

Anyone got a link for the live ticker?

Well i went for Hesjedal rather than EBH but could both be up there, thought about gallopin but as id gone for dumoulin, didnt fancy two from cofidis

and you did throw in the gamble with Tj

my outsider that i didnt go for in the end, is mccartney for spider tech, so if he now does well it will be a Gkam moment where i should have trusted my gut

Look for the GPCQM Twitter feed... its is in French... and sometimes translated to English.

Gilbert has crashed and is sitting on the tarmac.

Edit: Gilbert is back on his teammates bike (I think) but is some way behind the peloton.

But the gap got closer with each GT so you'd better watch out next year.  16

FFS, Gilbert punctured, got a new bike and then crashed and has someone else's, hope the puncture on the bike he threw to the ground has been sorted, else he'll be regretting throwing it if its damaged  4

I'm going to ignore the tracker twitter sh*t cause its annoying not having little pictures and a race map, lol, thought sky might have done one, but i'll just wait for Eurosport coverage of the last few laps at 8pm

There's also a ticker in french on eurosport.fr You'll need to look under cyclisme etc. I tried to post the link but I'm not sufficiently trusted to do that without moderation yet. It may appear but probably far too late.
