I guess the rules for Le Samyn / Strade Bianche purist teams are the same as for the previous stages, so it would probably be a good idea to go full house on Strade Bianche participants as the weather in Belgium seems to be somewhat on the crappy side for cycling.

Yes you can Mr Hill  3

I've just lumped in EVERY rider from all the times I have filled out. Just missing Astana and Caja Rural at the moment.

Off to make up the rosters for teams in La Samyn that were previously not in the game

This looks like the most up to date one:

Though cycling fever is looking similar too.

Sorry if this has been covered, but can we clarify if purist teams get any transfers between Strade Bianche and the newly added Roma Maxima? Or is it, as I assume, unlimited transfers for Samyn, and then thats your team for the three?

Why dont you go over there and ask them face 2 face. Wheres the commitment to this fantasy game. surely as the master of the early classics, it should be your duty...

Apologies for this as it's probably already been stated elsewhere but between Le Samyn and Strade Bianche how many transfers do we get ???????

I've got my purist team sorted based purely around Strade and Roma but need to get my head sorted for Samyn

I think that this comp needs a major rethink for next year. Trying to pick a purist team for 3 races in 2 different countries when the startlist for at least one of them only contains 16 names and one of the others has almost half the teams empty is nigh on impossible. I realise that it's the same for everyone and it's far too late to change anything now for this year but the grouping of races needs to be looked at. The one day races are enough of a lottery as it is, without having to guess whether any of your riders will even be starting, let alone scoring points.

True Simon, I think it would all be fine if organisers were as punctual with startlists etc as RCS are, as they had Strade out exactly a week before, and if that was the same for all races it would be much easier. ASO are normally pretty good for there 'big events' but were poor for, Qatar and Oman, Oman especially

I think had KBK gone ahead something like this culd have worked

Omloop - 4 trans - KBK - Unlimited - Strade - 4/6 trans - Roma

To be fair Roma hasn't taken place for the past 5 years

In fairness, the problem here is that once a race is opened it's very hard to change anything so it's not possible to swap a 6 transfer window with an unlimited one.

I like the smaller one day races and I think Omloop was a good addition, I think Strade Bianchi will also be a good addition too. I've never heard of Samyn and Roma Maxima is new so we'll have to see how they go.

Purist comps for the classics are ALWAYS complicated. last year you had to pick teams across two or three major one day races which was hard but it's purist, that's the nature of the game.

If everyone is saying that you want unlimited transfers between every one day race so that purists and standards alike can tinker to their hearts content then that's a separate issue but otherwise where there are a limited number of transfers (ie 4 or 6) then purists are restricted to zero because that is how the game works, and how it has always worked.

yeah, possibly it would be better to run it just with unlimited transfers between all the races and do away with the purist element for it. it took us a couple of years to get the spring classics working okay as well  39

I have the Roma startlist

http://www.gazzetta.it/Speciali/RomaMaxima/2011/it/download/Iscritti_201...

To be fair, Roma was never on my radar until it was suggested about replacing KBK with it. So yes, its all a bit last minute.

If you think its sent you into a pickle, think about poor old me trying to get startlists and things  19
