Anyone know of a startlist available out there? Picking a team could be a bit hit and miss without one.

I've put a team together using pro-cycling stats (some teams not available) no big names to speak of.
D.V.P & G.V.A are down but that is about it, so some research into the conti teams is needed Nerd

Startlist came out not long ago, I just got home. So about to update it

http://www.binche-tournai-binche.eu/documents/20131007-bcb.pdf

The race has been around since 1911 as the Binche–Tournai–Binche, it wasn't run from 1931-1983

This year its renamed, because its not going to Tournai Applause

Is this the lowest value startlist of the year? I don't think any combination of riders is unavailable here.

Nevertheless, though some obvious choices will be picked widely there are a lot of riders in the 5-12 range who could definitely do something.

Because I had to load in so many new riders. Then yes its got to be the lowest.

It will be interesting to see how it goes. Because you can, if you wanted, pick the 9 most expensive riders within budget.

Nightmare to pick. When you can have all the most expensive riders you have to justify to yourself that you know better than the person who set the price Wink

Went for this...
Danny Van Poppel (VCD)
Lars Boom (BEL)
Maxim Belkov (KAT)
Jurgen Roelandts (LOT)
Michael Morkov (SAX)
Adrien Petit (COF)
Greg Van Avermaet (BMC)
Mark Renshaw (BEL)
Samuel Dumoulin (ALM)

Trying to cover both the breakaway and sprint finish options; can anyone confirm what the position is? Can't find any live text.

Just 23km to go, its a scary one fantasy wise to predict, 18 second lead but quite a few riders out there, not many sprint trains helping out, all very fast.

Bah - 3,5,6,8 in both teams, not bad but left out RJVR to be a bit different.

Only seen the top 10 so maybe there's a bit more to come...

Standard, 1,3,4,8,20. Not too bad. Just missed out on David Apollonio as LR.

Any idea on breakaway points?
