I've put him in by taking out moser and tschopp with haussler coming in as well.

I had set my team up earlier with a few credits spare to get sagan in for today.

I too am considering committing heresy by leaving out you-know-who. 'Cos it's him and someone cheap who won't do anything, or not him and two 20-odd credit riders who might post a better combined score. But who are they...?

I have picked Sagan and avoided breaking the first two cardinal rules of fantasy cycling (don't pick Goss, don't pick Farrar).

But surely you're going to need him in the next few stages!

Out with the old, in with the new for me. 30 penalty points allows me to bring in:

Sagan
JD
Haussler
Demare
Boonen

with all my eggs in one basket, the break will no doubt stick today!

Looks like I may lose ground today but with a pure sprinters stage tomorrow and only needing to bring one sprinter in I'm not gonna incur penalties swapping them back out after the fat stage  1

Got to love Farrar and Goss

Everytime I pick them they do nothing

Everytime I don't they do well.

Looks like a Demare win, but CLOSE with Goss 2nd, Farrar 3rd, Degenkolb 4th

Who left them out and went for Sagan.....  19

I didn't have any of them

1,5,6,7 standard (20 penalties)+ Frank
1 and 7 for my purist, but I doubt many purist teams will have Demare and have done as well as me so far, as I still have 3,6,7 on GC in my purist  1

At least Wyss got me 5 mountain points as well. Looks like he may try for a break at some point  39

I hate to sound ignorant, more so than usual, but is what you meant a) always pick Sagan or b) never pick Goss or Farrar, J?  1
