Dave, I'm all for adding the Tour de Suisse to the competition. It's one of my favorite races of the year after the Grand Tours. Could you run the Tour de Suisse as part of the Dauphine? Make them a combo? Just call it Criterium de Dauphine/Tour de Suisse and make it one competition which includes both races? I think that's what happened last year from previous posts. I don't know, though. I think I understood that on the overlap days you could choose riders that are in either of the races and you would get the respective points they scored in the respective race they were in. Please let me know! I think it'd be fun!  1

that is what happened last year, yes. and it didn't work, people didn't really get it. so we made the decision not to do it this year.

it's possible that for next year we'll implement a system whereby you can pick a team for both. but for this year it's not going to happen. sorry.

I agree, it did get a bit nerdy  26 with points calculations & comparisons taking centre stage over the cycling for a couple of days....
