drheaton has kindly agreed to run a 'pick three...' comp for the Tour of Britian. Submissions closed now, but rules for reference are:

1 - Pick three riders from the startlist who are British 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 Madison-Genesis 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 11am (BST) Sunday 15 September 2013.

Teams are:

ray silvester: Cavendish, Bibby, McEvoy

Wiggins, Edmondson, Downing

With Cavendish the only Brit over 20 credits it gives this game an interesting flavour. It's not about maximising your budget, it's about picking the best combination of riders possible and you're only going to get tight on budget if you pick Cav.

Plus, only 8 stages so should be fewer DNFs too.

There are 4 possible stage wins for Cav but to be honest the sprinting competition is probably better than that of La Vuelta with the likes of Viviani and Nizzolo around.

Decent spread of riders being picked so far. May have mugged myself not picking Cav, but he's in my purist (and Wiggo is not) so what the hell.

Not sure those of you picking Dowsett and or Wiggo have thought things through.....they will probably pull out before the end for the World TTT(last day of the TOB) and World ITT(day after TOB finishes).

I've picked them both...  13

May need a rethink! Thought the ITT was on the 25th, though!?

My mistake it is the 25th for the ITT but still a bit close and I'd be surprised if Wiggo and Dowsett weren't in the Sky and Movistar TTT squads......if they dare take on OPQS?

It seems Wiggins has been making a thorough recon of all the ToB stages. He may well be looking for the win as a confidence boost before the Worlds ?

I had considered that, the last day of the ToB is the day of the Worlds TTT but with Wiggins in particular, if he's leading the race after the ToB ITT he may try and win the race.

I suppose it all depends how much time they lose on stages 1 and 2.

Anyone have a third-party link to stage profiles? The official ToB website is flipping useless.
