Leipheimer 22.6
Viviani 10.9

Porte 14.4
Gretsch 9.9
Engoulvent 7.7
Kreder 3.2

Total 148

There are another interesting riders like Van Garderen, Kloden, Brajkovic...

Not saying we don't believe you, but as you'll notice, no-one publishes their team until the deadline for transfers has past, as people who cannot be bothered to research their own team might just copy others  3

Got 3 of those guys  22
As of the other Paris/Nice thread, dont think many players will be giving much away before the transfer window closes  39
But good luck  3

Yes but that was different as we were playing that on the forums, everyone had to publish their time  4

I don't think people will copy my team. There are many interesting riders and any choice could be better than mine.
Maybe I'll make one or two changes (Van garderen...) but I'm sure that my final team will be very similar than I've published.

Well ok, I've nothing to hide with my team and people can copy if they wish, I'm not going for all the top TT guys as thats stage 1, then a sprint stage 2, I'm thinking more about the mountains and gaining some points while saving transfers for later on  4

wow, dont believe your team will look like that Gkam....but ive actually only got 1 rider out of the 18 you and and JAndrewHill have put down, which says either both you guys are playing to the fishing game, or my tactics maybe up s**t creek....but for me neither of you have a must rider for stage two and a must rider for the rest of the race (in my eyes anyway)

My team adds up to exactly 150 credits, and that's as much info as I'm giving away for the moment.  4

That's a pretty nice team you have there. My only doubt is Engoulvent. You might be able to do beter for his value. Kreder would have been a great addition! Wish we could see him against the big boys after his recent successes!  1

Race starts Sunday - officially it's Stage 1 but it's Prologue distance.

I've gone for Wiggins and Martin, on account of not knowing enough about all this (yet!) to know if anyone is likely to be better over that distance. So playing it safe.
AND a cheap teammate of Martin's, a couple of cheap sprinters for Monday, 2 good American TT-ers, one prologue specialist and a French guy I've never heard of but was the right price and seemed to place high in a recent TT elsewhere. Can then bring in a top sprinter for Monday, and then... well then I'm pretty clueless frankly. Any opinions on how stages 3 and 4 are likely to pan out would be of interest!  1

My 9 guys above were just guys who won a stage or classification in last years paris-nice.
It looks nothing like my current squad.

My master plan / genius tactic has been foiled. The cheap team mate of my winner for the ITT has pulled out znd the other team mates are too dear.

Well that's it. I won't win paris nice now.

Nice

Someone brought up an interesting point on the other Paris Nice forum. Rasmussen is on the official list as a replacement but he is still on our list as racing - is it that he is a replacement and therefore on our list or is it an oversight or has someone dropped out from Garmin.  7

I think at the moment as the "official" startlist has not been finalised, Dave may have left the replacements on the selection process as it will be easier just to take off those who are not riding when offically confirmed than add on once confirmed (i may be completely wrong)

On a seperate matter, i love how people still continue to post teams on the forum, whether they are serious teams or just fishing or what. its just funny
