DEADLINE PASSED! Good luck all.

Rules fer reference, like:

1 - Pick three riders from the startlist who are Spanish and ensure that your three riders cost a combined 50 Space Creds or less.
2 - Only riders finishing the race count towards your points total. If one of your riders abandons mid-race (even during the last stage) then their points won't count towards your total.
3 - There are no restrictions on picking more than one rider from a particular team, if you want to pick three riders from Caja Rural feel free.
4 - Highest combined total wins, if one or more players get the same combined score then the winner will be chosen by a coin toss/random number generator or similar impartial method
5 - Deadline for entries was 17:30 (BST) Saturday 24 August 2013.

Spanish riders can easily be found by searching with ESP (not extra-sensory perception, but those actual letters in the 'Find' box).

Feel free to discuss riders/combinations etc but please try and make your submissions final where possible. The rosters will likely change a bit between now and the start of the race so don't jump the gun when submitting your team!

The teams are:

JAndrewHill: Rodriguez, Txurruka, Arroyo
stumps: S. Sanchez, Txurruka, Nieve

Hey, yes I'll run this but currently in Paris on my honeymoon and won't be back until Sunday so if someone could get it going and make sure people submit legal teams that'd be much appreciated.

Rules will be same as previous grand tours. Pick three Spanish riders for a total of 50 credits, there are no other restrictions, just that yours riders must all be listed as Spanish in the game (if you disagree with someone's nationality then flag it and someone will review it).

Hopefully I'll be able to drop in later in the week to submit a team.

Ghedebrav, would you mind just putting all confirmed teams into your first post (as I did with the Giro/Tour games) as they are submitted just so it's easy to find submitted teams. You could also stick some rules up there (copy and paste mine from elsewhere if you like) just so they're obvious. Thanks!

My first choice team is already taken, and my second choice is 50.1 credits! (So probably doesn't count as a second choice then really...)

So my final selection is...
J Rodriguez 39.0
Urtasun Perez 7.1
Arroyo Duran 3.0

None of whom are in my purist team. Hmm...

Whilst I'd never wish ill on anyone, Amets Txurruka abandoning would clear the way for the few folks (me included) who haven't picked him to dominate this contest.

A lot of eggs in that Basque-et...  4
