Yeah, a couple of the dates on the competitions page are a bit squiffy - eg it says Beijing starts and finishes on the 16th, and it says the "Autumn Classics" start on 2nd Oct, but I can't find any races on that day. What races constitute Autumn classics out of interest? Just Lombardia and Paris-Tours now? (I know they cancelled Piemonte - did they cancel Milano-Torino as well?)

There's also the fact that Cannondale and Team Canada have both been given the same abbreviation(and jerseys)....however it does allow you to pick 2 from each team.

I've sorted that out, CAN for Cannondale (as they're in more races) and CND for Canada. Shouldn't be required too often.

Do purists have to keep the same team between the two races?

Oh no! Missed the cut-off before being able to monkey around with my team!

Oh well. Standard, I went for:

Sagan
GVA
Chava
Veilluex
Coquard
Mezgec
Nordhaug
Parisien
Duchesne

Think I've managed three Quebecois in there, though! Wish I could find teh time to see these races; on my honeymoon last year we went to Montreal & Quebec and had a fabulous time. Montreal a great cycling city.

Yeah, I've still got the best part of 5 hours to go before I have to finalise mine  4

I'll be doing a last sweep up of roster changes at lunch time, I don't think there have been any changes in the last day but I'll check anyway.

Also, scores will probably be going up in the morning and there are four transfers available between races so plan accordingly!

I've half a chance of grabbing third overall in purist, so even the lesser races have become important, although looking at my purist team now I'm not sure about it at all...

STD
Sagan
Caruso
Kolobnev
Stetina
Nordhaug
Albasini
Pozzato
Gallopin
Sutherland

Purist is...
Sagan
Caruso
GVA
Hesjedal
Gallopin
Pozzato
Izaguirre (Jon)

Duggan
