According to a.n. other website, Ben Hermans is out, replaced by Jan Bakelandts.

All I have to do now is try to work out how to beat gkam84 - my ambition for the year. Trouble is, I've forgotten everything I ever knew about pro-cycling. Time to start learning again  7

@Simon F - `how to beat gkam84'

TIP #1 - Just wait until gkam84 posts his team, then DON'T pick those riders  13

I can't find any scheduling on TV or cable, other than Sky Sports 4  31

Thank you  4 I have changed my tactics back to the start of the game last year, post my actual team, so by all means, PLEASE don't pick any of my riders  26

For me it's a learning kerb, on a daily basis, you just don't know what's going to happen in cycling anymore as there are so many good riders nowadays all about the same par..  13

Are the UniSA riders not in the list ?

I wanted to pick the man with the best name in cycling... Steele von Hoff.

Jack Bobridge is out BTW.

Dave, you're breaking the man's heart!  1 Could you add the Uni-SA guys? They seem pretty good and it would only be 7 guys, if I'm right! Don't mean to be annoying, but, I'd sure like to put some on my team! You can even slot them in at bargain values!  1 Maybe all of them at less than 4 points? It'd be a bargain. If it makes a difference, I put my vote in for Uni-SA to be included!  1 Thanks!

Cheers for Steele von Hoff... gotta put him in now so I hope he gets some points.

Looks like he was in the mix in the crit sprint today.

Apparently he can put out 2000 watts - Greipel was recorded putting out 1940 the other day.

Of course its not all about the watts, but still it's pretty impressive. He's riding with the Garmin development squad (Chipotle) this year I think so presumably the UniSA thing is like a President's XI squad.

I noticed Jan Bakelants [Bakelandts/Bakelands] is back in the pack, so have picked him as he got me not many, but some useful points last year.
The Von HOFFmeister looks like a new talent as well, so he's gone in for a punt.
