A nice 'call to arms' email from GKam there. Have to say, I needed no persuading. This one is one of my favourites of the whole season.

I thought I'd hit the jungle drums and maybe some of the tribe would come out of the woods and join in the forum. Trying to keep it looking slightly busy in the run up to La Vuelta when everyone comes piling back  4

Yeah, good stuff Gkam, I liked the email too. Looking forward to this one, shame I'm away next weekend so won't be able to watch the climax - you're right it was excellent last year.

Having enjoyed last year race I'm looking forward to this also - think will be able to watch live on the web as last year also. One question as to rosters most website are showing Darwin Atapuma as racing, but he's not currently in the fantasy start list.

Won't be touching Teej with a barge pole. Every time he says he's going to do something he totally fails.

surely this is getting too late to update? For those that have to work, they can't keep logging in all afternoon in the hope of being able to add Atapuma to their team. Add him to the listing of players for Stage 2 and then everyone is on a level playing field. Assuming he is racing that is?

Team picked - I'm away this weekend with no internet connection so won't be able to do well, just need to cut my losses and hope the purists do OK...

Who's going to be leading Garmin? I think probably any of their riders could turn out to be a decent purist pick!
