I did my team and completely forgot about Sagan  39

Im going with no Martin for the ITT, so maybe I will go with no Sagan for the road race

The problem with that is its not cut out the riders who are not going to be there. So for GB, its listing 14 riders.....

Where can we find the FINAL startlist for the TT?  39

As a purist, can you re select your team between the TT and the road race?

I was going to ask the same question, I assume that we can as it's an unlimited transfer window between the two races but the fact that there's a 'purist World Champs' league confused me.

I'd like a shot at trying this format out in a different setting, where there are (!) lots of Star Riders. Could we try this for the World Championhsip Road Race?  1

Im guessing thats something that could be in the pipeline for next year maybe.

The only reason the ToB was done that way ,was there was literally 6 star riders, whereas in the Road race there is still a pretty even split between DS's and Stars

Yeah, it's a bit short notice to be rolling it out for the road race now but I would like to see it trialled for one of the other races, possibly the Lombardia or Tour of Beijing?

I would hope the answer is yes. That's how the Olympics and the GP Montreal/Quebec races worked. In the real world, the TT and the road race are treated as separate, independent one-day races with no cumulative scoring, so purists *should* be able to make transfers in between.

I hope so, seeing as I've already made my changes...

Every other unlimited window (such as the ones mid-classic season) have been fine for Purist transfers but it seemed odd having a purist league for two races with an unlimited transfer window in between.

there's automatically a purists league for each comp. in this instance it'll be the same as the main league

It is a shame the 4/5 split is in place becuase I'd quite like to run a team of 5 stars for the Worlds, with the likes of Gerrans, Boonen and Leukmans all at fairly low prices I reckon you could just about squeeze 6 stars in if you were prepared to go cheap on DSs.

the main reason we changed it for the ToB was because it was a small field with very few stars; neither of those are true of the world champs

I love the way cav is playing this down saying he has no chance but there are no major climbs so I expect tim to hit the front with 50m to go. Allez sky! They have learnt their lesson from the olympics.

Cav won't be at the front with 50km to go, Expect to see him dropped with around 75km to go  3

Climb 5, its not hugely steep overall, but there are hard parts and its a 3km climb......Cav will be done for

Why is LL Sanchez not racing - is he injured ?

Thought he would be a cert for this type of race.  39

I don't think he's injured. But Contador, Valverde, SS, Freire and J-Rod are there. Do the Spanish need another leader/contender?

I know what you mean but three of them have just kicked merry hell out of each other in the Vuelta and looking at Bertie in the TT he did not seem "in form".

Sammy looked good in the ToB but he wasn't up against much competition.
