Looking forward to it. My fantasy teams have served me well in the Spring and Autumn classics. I say well, I mean not atrocious like the rest of the races! Right, time to pick my team *sits down with tea and cake*

Muro di Sormano?

Yes.

Jered Gruber's video of the Muro is included in last year's preview:

My (standard) team:

Reichanbach
Nibali
Rui Costa
Martin
Vichot
Pozzovivo
Barguil
Uran (about whom I have 'a feeling')
Ulissi

Was *this* close to selecting Roche and/or Purito, but they've been dumped in my purist instead (along with Phil Gil, Caruso, Cunego, Bakelants, Basso, De Gendt and Meyer).

My team

Domenico Pozzovivo (ALM)
Patrick Facchini (AND)
Michele Scarponi (LAM)
Rui Alberto Faria Da Costa (MOV)
Joaquin Rodriguez (KAT)
Vicenzo Nibali (AST)
Rafal Majka (SAX)
Thomas Voeckler (EUC)
Simon Clarke (GRE)

Took out Quintana and Pelizotti for Rui Costa and Majka, although I think the course probably suits Quintana better but not sure about his form. Facchini a good cheap option, I hope.
