Tommeke; Obvs.  4

Apart from him, Hard to say whether being dropped will have added to the urgency of Mark Cavendish's winning needs

Sky putting all their eggs in the Cav basket again, EBH not getting the support he deserves from the team.

Plus, only 4 trades allowed between Gent and Flanders, so time for some tactical selections.

You think 4 trades is tough? Try playing purist, no changes for the next three races, got no idea who's riding what yet.

Best Eurosport can put on is Curling, Handball, Speedskating, Hockey & Tennis
Why not Tweet @spokesmen @BriSmithy or tell Eurosport what you think. I keep nibbling at them

Dave, can you confirm that the likes of Cancellara, Sagan, Westra among a few others are now riding this race. As they are not currently on the list of starters for the next race

Cancellara is riding in this according to the cycling fever start list but still greyed out on the game?

I was seriously considering Hushovd but he didn't have a number so I passed him by  20

David Millar has a broken collar bone BTW so I reckon he is now out.

Yeah, they're on the start list at:

http://www.cyclingnews.com/races/gent-wevelgem-2012/start-list

Also the game start list has Andrew Fenn on the Omega Pharma roster but he doesn't appear on the start list above.

Come on guys, use your loaf  3

On the Filter drop down, select "all riders" or search their names, if you want them in your team and aint on road.cc's startlist, i'm sure it'll be updated tomorrow  26

He's in the official list as is Fenn, but Hushovd and Gilbert aren't. Millar still in as well but that may change, it appears.

I guess that's the official start list you're linking to. Wow, I wonder why both Cyclingfever and Cyclingnews have them on their start list. Man, what a dilemma!  39

Im guessing that official startlist was printed a few days ago (as its a pdf etc), whereas cyclingfever update online when they are told there is a change

Following De Kort's crash I fear I need to remove him from my team. Head-to-toe bandages don't bode well, despite his recent form.

Dave, what start list are you using?... The 'official' start list shared above has Fenn in, but the game list grayed him out...

The official startlist doesn't account for changes since it was printed, therefore cyclingfever is more likely to be correct and up to date where he isnt on the startlist
