Whats you team looking like?

by Gkam84   January 9, 2012  

Ok, guys, i know you wont believe me after last years antics Devil

But i really cant decided on a team to start the TdU

This is my latest changes

Replace Edvald Boasson Hagen with Matthew Goss
Replace Matthew Goss with Michael Matthews
Replace Mark Renshaw with Jose Joaquin Rojas
Replace Robbie Mcewen with Alessandro Ballan
Replace Adam Blythe with Cameron Meyer
Replace Jens Voigt with Luke Roberts
Replace Adam Hansen with Gorka Izagirre
Replace Matthew Lloyd with Ben Hermans
Replace Matthew Brammeier with Jose Ivan Gutierrez

Cant decided on a final team, changing guys daily, lol

Also, not looking forward to some of the big races, as its still a 2 per team limit, having Wiggo and Cav in the same team now and also the Schlecks, Cancellara, Horner, Kloden and Fuglsang to name a few of the RSN team Crying

Nope i really don't, i picked out a team just to try the system after having tried it in "beta" stage, then i changed it, the list as you see above and now i'm going to change it over the weekend when i finally decide who will be riding for me Big Grin

Most were ok, but some just didn't agree with my system at all, most time on the toilet than on the bike

I'm working on write ups for them all at the moment Big Grin

I've got the same problem - I pick my team, commit the changes, but hen I go back there's no-one listed and the big red button still says my team is incomplete?

Last night I would have considered trading a very loud baby for a really nice bike.

Hang on - just tried again using MS IE - there's a 2nd commit button on the transfer summary page - sure that wasn't there when I used Google Chrome?

Dave, c'mon, let's have a limit of 4 per team for the grand tours! What's the big deal? It'd be fun! If I could I'd have the whole GreenEdge team as my 9 riders for the TDU! I think it'd be fun! Fantasy imitating reality!

On another note:

Would you consider putting reply and quote links to the main thread of a forum topic? Thanks! Smile

Well I reckon he's a good bet, gonna be leading out the Boss so likely to be there or there abouts but also likely to hang in there overall. He'll be top 10 on a few stages I reckon?

The problem with GT is, he's in the "star" riders section, now he may well be leading out EBH along with Pate, but that then discounts him as a star and i don't have room for people like that in my team Big Grin

Well I think that's it . . . my final transfers for the TDU. I have now transferred out:=

Danny Pate
Nathan Haas
Heinrich Haussler
Michael Rogers
Cameron Meyer
Ruben Perez
Matthew Lloyd
Serge Pauwels
Alessandro Petacchi

But that would have been a good squad. Big Grin
90 minutes to kickoff.

Is Cav racing this time? Devil
