Any reason NOT to use Quebec as a form guide?

Well thats what ive used as a form guide!

How can you expect someone to get form that didnt have it two days ago? its not like a stage race where you can build up some form.

Expect a similar top 20 in a different order in my opinion

I actually expect Rui Costa to be able to defend, or it not Tommy V or Sagan to actually win this time

There might be the odd guy who eased off in Quebec to save himself for Montreal (eg Fedrigo didn't finish Quebec last year but came 2nd in Montreal), but no way of knowing who they are...

But TER the three you mention are all in my team anyway.

With the exception of Sagan my team are all from the top 20 in quebec.

I was thinking of keeping LL hoever the way he tried to go and luterally stopped made me think the same could happen today..

5 that finished in the top 20 last year finished in the top 20 in quebec the other day, and 4 of those are in my team.

The one im still considering over is do i go gerrans or Ciolek

I'm not using Quebec in my decision, I'm looking ahead a bit and picking people who are not just there for a warm up for the world champs and won't be featuring in the champs really  3

So I've ended up with quite a random team + Sagan

Three guys I've just switched out as I can't squeeze them into my team. So no doubt it'll be the 1,2,3

Johnny Hoogerland
Christophe Kern
Yuri Trofimov

Daniel Martin
Peter Sagan
Gerald Ciolek
Giovanni Visconti
Christian Vande Velde
Eduard Vorganov
Michael Albasini
Maxime Vantomme
Maarten Wynants

Its feeling like another big fat 0 again today.

If I'd kept my Quebec team I would have had a few  14

I had Nordhaug and Kolobnev, and most of my other guys seemed to be hanging around in the lead group somewhere. Not seen the final result yet tho...

Points are up but it'd be cool to know the stage rankings - at present both the Montreal and Quebec pages show the results for Quebec. Presumably something to do with the races being loaded the wrong way round. I was aiming for top 100 - come on put me out of my misery!  4
