Apologies but never entered one of the unofficial races - is this the same format with 150 points to play with and 2 per team ?

Nice, obutter! But, c'mon, Dave, be a sport and pop it into the game for us! There's not much of a season left and we've been good boys this year!  3

Ok, I'm in. This is my team, for anyone who studied the startlist will see what I've done  3

Daniel Moreno
Samuel Sanchez
Alessandro Ballan
Borut Bozic
Enrico Battaglin
Koen de Kort
Robinson Eduardo Chalapud
Carlos Alberto Betancur
Matteo Rabottini

I had another team lined up that had Gilbert and J-Rod, but it seems far from the races claims. They are not riding  39

Quote:

The riders entered for the 98th Gran Piemonte include: Philippe Gilbert, Christopher Froome,
Joaquin Rodriguez, Samuel Sanchez, 2011 winner Daniel Moreno, Italian national champion
Franco Pellizotti, Diego Ulissi, Alessandro Ballan and Daniele Bennati.

The first three rider's aint going to be in the race  26

I guess its becasuse they were when the race wrote that promotional piece of the race, and have since dropped out.

Gilbert dropped out on Monday or Tuesday

Picked the first 9 riders that will be wearing the number 1....

No-one with the winner today then. Uran. Why didn't I stick to my Gilbert/J-Rod team. I had Paolini and Verdugo in it  20http://www1.skysports.com/cycling/news/15264/8114386/?utm_source=feedbur...

Uran

5,13,38,45,87,102 and 3 non finishers

If I'd gone with my Gilbert team I would have had there

2,3,5,9,11,17,15 + Gilbert and J-Rod who weren't racing  14

But I had to change my mind instead of just swapping them out  20

You would have beat the crap out of everyone with that team!  3 I think that would have been more than 97 points!

57 for me, i think !

30 for Paolini and 22 for Henao + 5 for Uran winning.

not bad for only 2 riders scoring.
