Correct Schleck has dental problems and Cadel said a while ago he wouldn't be racing this year

Hmmm, dental, i knew it was a problem for him in Canada, but thought he had it sorted, its a shame because it would have given 2 people for others to waste their credits on  19

Well, my ideal 9 riders turn out to be 105 points over budget  40

Lucky there's a few days to think about it  39

yh so did my ideal 9 too, so ive got 4 you could class as sprinters, 4 guys who could do something on there own, and a guy who you could class as more of a GC type.

My only gripe is im missing out on being able to afford one of two guys i would like from a certain european country that could do well in this race

I have a good feeling about Rojas... but do I drop Hushovd, Cavendish, Gilbert or Sagan? This no restrictions game is fun.

No restrictions is fun, but its a hell of a lot more difficult to pick my team now because i can have any amount of any category its making my life harder, lol

Rojas and Thomas or Thor and Gallopin are my choices i think as i dont think my plan for gavazzi should be entertained rather than either Rojas or Gallopin should be entertained

5 sprinters for me!

Its technically know as "putting all your eggs in one basket".

Edit: I have replaced one of my eggs with a certain Beglian.

2 that are classed as sprinters but would say 2/3 of my DS's are also sprinters

AARRRGGGHHHH! This is a tricky one indeed!

Currently have 4 DS sprinters, 1 DS all-rounder, 3 AR, and one pure SP. Definitely not happy with the lineup yet though!
