Does it say anywhere which races are included in the "Autumn Classics"? The Competitions tab says they start tomorrow, but since a) its not open yet and b) I don't think there are any races tomorrow, I'm assuming thats not the case?

Just want to make sure I don't miss anything!

I've loaded in four races, I had six lined up, but lack of information made me drop two.

This isn't my race, its Dave's. I've just set it up, so he may well change it.

So far I have

Milano - Torino
Giro di Lombardia
Binche - Chimay - Binche
Paris - Tours

Milano starts on the 2nd, so just a couple of days away  3

These are the races I see on the Cyclingnews.com Race Calendar for October...

October 2013
2nd Milano-Torino Road Italy 1.HC
3rd Giro del Piemonte Road Italy 1.HC
3rd Sparkassen Münsterland Giro Road Germany 1.1
3rd Tour de l'Eurométropole Road Belgium 2.1
3rd Tour of Marmara Road Turkey 2.2

Is the Oct 8 race Binche-Tournai-Binche the same as the one you have listed as Binche-Chimay-Binche, or is that a different one on a different day?...

Ok, they are open, the Milano roster isn't totally completed, hoping to have a full startlist tomorrow.

Its been made unlimited transfers for each race....I had it set up differently, but its Dave's race, I was just mucking in  3

As i've lost all my results for the year i have nothing to play for so my standard team is made up purely from Italy and my purist is set up with a few long shots just to have a bit of fun.

Stumps, what was the last stage where you had scored and your account was working?

Gkam,

Dave has managed to recreate my account with all my stage scores and most of my badges. I was never in with a chance of winning any of the comps so i'm happy just to have my account back mate.

Now worries, I was just thinking, doing an update of the last stage before your account went might bring back everything  3

Still struggling with a full start list, but going most of them in

The start lists are starting to fill out (below) and they're looking very much like the start lists for Milano-Torino and the Tour of Lombardy. I hope we can at least add the more challenging Giro dell' Emilia? The more mountains the merrier!  1http://www.cyclingfever.com/editie.html?detp=view&_ap=startlijst&editie_...

Paris–Bourges and Tour de Vendee were the two I cut.

I also had Coppa Placci and Chrono des Nations on the list, but decided not to include them. With Beijing starting soon, that will bring an end to the season, then the real work begins to get 2014 set up.

Some big changes coming

I guess I've never followed the races you considered and put up... except for the Tour of Lombardy, and sometimes Paris-Tours... I'm kind of surprised you didn't think of the Coppa Sabatini and the Giro dell' Emilia...

Shame the Tour of the Vendee didn't make it, kind of assumed it would be in, but no matter given the lack of info available.

More to the point, WHAT AM I GOING TO DO AFTER THE TOUR OF BEIJING FINISHES!?

Well?

Start working out where you went wrong this season, work out how to correct it and plan for the Tour down under....

Then get researching your women's racing

Oh, lets see, how about planning your list for Santa which includes lots of nice cycling gear, then its just a short hop to the Tour Down Under and it all starts again  41

Given that the wife's on maternity leave and I'm in in the unlikely role of family breadwinner, I essentially AM Santa this year. So I doubt I'll stretch much further than a pair of socks and a tenner (of course!) for 2014 fantasy cycling!

If I'm extra-good, I may splash out for the Eurosport player.

But for the off-season, I suppose football will have to do...
