That's a bit lastminute.com?

I can't see the need really with Paris-Nice opening on the same day

No, I read on another thread that there are no transfers for purists between Strade and Roma.

Bring it on, I say.

My understanding is that you pick one team for all three of Le Samyn, Strade Bianchi and Roma Maxima and that's it.

No transfers at all between the three.

Personally I think I might pick a team for Strade/Roma and largely ignore Samyn. Only problem though is that I'd have to pick my team before Samyn without knowing the full and final startlists for the others.

the pick one team for all the races thing I missed that meeting, so a lot of my picks are redundant now, I will need to pay more attention, but it is difficult if not logging in all the time etc. Maybe there is an argument for not including 1 day races only a day apart in Purist leagues.

He wasn't on the startlist released by organisers a few days ago and he wasn't mentioned in article about the race on official site yesterday.

Put him in Ter, I'm just about to do the startlist now and his will be on there.

I WILL be using this startlist

Because I know a couple of rider have pulled out and it seems most upto date  4

Oh poot. Having checked Nibali's Twitter feed, and Astana's website I was hoping he'd win and I could be smug. Now you're spoiling it by telling everyone. Darn it to heck, I can't even sneak an advantage.

Agree with livestrongnick about Roma Maxima history, but what about a 2.9km prologue as per Paris-Nice. any history on that one?  7

TDF had a 1 kilometre prologue in 1988.

Hell, if that had been more recent, it would almost have been worth signing up Chris Hoy and grabbing the maillot jaune for the day  3

i did have the winner in my team - Jimmy Engoulvent - but now he is not riding. I would give you a tip on where to look for the best info on the most recent short prologue but that would be telling  3
