As Far as I can tell the system is as follows?

For standard:
Omloop-4 transfers-KuurneBruxelles-Unlimited transfers-Samyn-6 transfers-Bianchi

For Purist:
Omloop+KBK-Unlimited transfers-Samyn+Bianchi

Startlists:
Make your own checks as it sounds as if those racing in just one of the races may be listed for both i.e Cavendish is in the provisonal OPQS line up for Kuurne but not for the Omloop but will be listed in the riders list for both.

Just a scoring question:
Will the scoring for Purist take all 4 races as a whole OR split it into the 2 sections as divided by permitted transfers?

Basically for the startlists, all riders for the first two races highlighted as available, so what Gkam is saying foe everyone, is don't come on here and moan after if you Pick Cav thinking he is riding Omloop, when he is just riding Kuurne  19 3 check it for yourself basically.

As for scoring it will all be together as one competition I believe, just the startlists differ so greatly it would be very difficult for all four races to be together without any changes. Abit like how the normal classics worked last year, I think there was an unlimited window halfway through

Why do people bother posting when they do not have an answer to a valid question....I am well aware of how and by whom a selection window is opened....  2

There are around 20 riders who are riding one and not the other. Its not painfully hard, but I have created this side by side view for you.

As TER said, its just upto Dave to press open, we only create the races and rosters, then score them, Dave to use is the boss and have all the crucial buttons  26

I would be tempted with Belgian riders or those on Belgian teams or those who live in Belgium or those who were born in Belgium or have Belgian parents.....you get the idea.

People like Matthew Brammeier and Gatis Smukulis  19

Procycling stats have a nice team if you look at their top 10 one day racers on the KBK page

http://www.procyclingstats.com/race/1181501-Kuurne-Brussel-Kuurne-2013-O...

And all of them are riding this weekend.

I hadn't heard of that race but it certainly looks fun, especially as it features a section of the Appian Way! Bike racing on Roman roads, excellent  4

As for adding it, I think it's too late. Once a 'race' or collection of races such as this are open it's not possible to add/change stages.

Perhaps one to watch and consider next year.
