Omloop Het Volk/Nieuwsblad practice for the classics by submitting a team

by nickobec   February 23, 2012  

how about a test of your classic team management skills? for ego, no points involved. Though Dave can test / explain the scoring for 1 day races.

Same rules as usual, 150 points, 4 stars, 5 ds etc.

If I get organised I will do the same for Kuurne-Bruxelles-Kuurne tomorrow (and because it is practise only 6 transfers between races)

So who is in?

here is my team for Omloop Het Volk/Nieuwsblad

Star riders: pick any 4 GC PC KM AR

Philippe Gilbert (BMC)
AR Value: 40.0 Form: 1.6

Lars Boom (RAB)
AR Value: 20.5 Form: 0.0

Juan Antonio Flecha (SKY)
AR Value: 22.0 Form: 13.6

Sylvain Chavanel (OPQ)
AR Value: 25.2 Form: 4.0
Domestiques: pick any 5 DS

Luca Paolini (KAT)
DS Value: 10.5 Form: 2.6

Sebastien Turgot (EUC)
DS Value: 11.7 Form: 0.0

Christopher Sutton (SKY)
DS Value: 2.8 Form: 9.6

Martin Elmiger (ALM)

where is tomorrow's team being posted, and 6 transfers correct?

Also no-one has any of the breakaway riders so need to worry about those points. Would you like me to do the points at the end of the race today, i will be free to do that?
