Thanks Minardi. See my comments in the "Overall Season League" thread.

I see that you are no slouch with a 4th and a 3rd in overall seson and purist. And a 5th and a first respectively in 2017. Very consistent. Well done.

In stage races you need to do some forward planning to make best use of transfers & budget. eg. having a cheap rider who may not score points in your team could allow better options in later stages.

I always look at the actual teams' strategy for a race. Not all teams publish this but some do, you can find this on their twitter feeds or websites. You may discover that they are going to support a different rider than you think, or two riders could be sharing the sprint duties.

Not sure how consistency works in the Purist Competion, I have done well in the overall competition but my results in individual competitions aren't anything special. Possibly comes down to having less completely disastrous races than other people.

enrique, (who was playing this game when I started), my strength is in planning transfers, and my yearly goal is the overall season, not individual races. So one has to be switched on and consistent for 9 months of the year. It is a lot of work.

Allan, swinso put in a purist team for the Vuelta, but no standard team. Why, I don't know.
