well to keep the forum moving have posted my purist team, gone mainly for climbers, a few Caja Rural who we should hopefully see up the road in breakaways, and a sprinter who has already picked up some nice points!

ALBERTO CONTADOR (TSB)

STEVEN KRUIJSWIJK (TLJ)

MIGUEL ANGEL LOPEZ (AST)

CHRISTOPHER FROOME (SKY)

EDUARD PRADES REVERTE (CJR)

SIMON YATES (OGE)

SERGIO PARDILLA (CJR)

GIANNI MEERSMAN (EQS)

ANDREW TALANSKY (CPC)

Similar to your team in a way. 4 riders the same, Contador, Lopez, Kruijswijk and Meersman.
I have Chaves where you have Froome. Then my downfall could be that ive gone for the breakaways. So where you you have Yates and Talansky I have Fraile and Atapuma, then a couple of nothing guys in Herrada and Senechal where you have Pardilla

I also went heavy on climbers. Hard not to, with this course. I added one TT guy, and one sprinter. Of course Meersman looked like a good deal at the cost. Then I took Froome, Contador, Chaves, Sammy Sanchez, Meintjes, De Clerq, Arroyo and then Castroviejo for the TT.

Looks like it'll be a challenge to hold onto the season Purist lead. I'm really hoping Sanchez can do well. Enjoy the race!

Also, I don't know if she reads the forum yet, but I want to welcome my friend BehindBars4Life who just joined, playing her first fantasy game. Go Katie!

Here's mine:- Felline, De Clerc, Gesink, Meersman, Froome, Valverde, Contador, Senechal, and last but not least Sammy Sanchez.

Question to anyone who knows:- Is there no Young Rider comp/jersey?

you are looking  good 1wrangler, I was 2nd on overall purist behind you but dropping like a stone now,  your Chaves/Sanchez/Meintjes combo is looking much stronger than my pick of Kruijswik/Lopez/Yates...

I didn't take any of Froome, Contador or Quintana.  Happy with the latter two, but Froome looks like he'll have a good race.

Kruijswijk

Chaves

Valverde

Rojas

Meersman

Haig

Lopez

Taaramae

Drucker
