Game set up for opening weekend races and should be good for Hamburg and the Canadian classics. There will be some tinkering, stage lengths, profiles, and teams will be added when we know more. Any <PCT level team will be added to the game and all riders probably valued at 3 by default, unless there's a very good reason why they shouldn't be.

I have a question: once you entered a competition, how can you leave it? Or is that not possible?

Yeah. The lottery that is the one day classics. Good luck everybody...we’ll be needing it.

So many great riders, so few podiums.

I Like the new route, Erliatz, is a hard climb, but it's probably too early in the race. I'll be there wearing a really old HTC shirt, keep an eye out for us.

A lot of teams only announced who would be riding quite late on, so I guess the race database was only updated quite late.

If you want to pick a rider who is not on the game race list, click the 'show all riders' box in the Rider Options column.

Quite happy with a poor showing today for this one. Decided this might be one to go easy with the transfers. Dropped from 3rd to 7th...that’ll do.

As usual the people I took out did better than their replacements.

Teunissen >>> Halvorsen

Demare >>> Ackermann

Probably messed this one up, I didn't realise they had completely changed the course this year.

Looks like a race for puncheurs & most of my team is sprinters.

Tim Merlier from Corendon is down to do the Brussels race but isn't on the 'show all riders' list.

I'll do an update in a couple of days to set it all up. SEG Racing need adding as well so watch this space.

Quebec; Naesen is on the startlist, but doesn't appear in bet 365 odds. Any ideas why?

Ouch, Giro D'Emilia is included in the Autumn Classics, I was planning for one less race, time to start saving transfers.

Couldn’t decide, and dithered and dithered,  between Teuns and Gaudu for Emilia...Ha...should have saved myself from the thinking time.

Never fancied Roglic after his showing at the worlds...maybe a week is a long time in cycling.

I saved transfers by completely forgetting about the Bretagne Classic during the Vuelta.

It wasn't the best strategy, I got 7 points for the race.

I did go for Roglic today though.

I did exactly the same.

Could have been worse Winston, you could have spent all Friday meticulously updating the start list and then forgot to make any changes at all! Luckily I still had Mollema and Ulissi so it could have been worse I suppose.

There was an autumn classics stage during the Vuelta?

At least I didn't know I'd missed it until now.

Missed all of that Milan race apart from literally the last minute. What happened to Higuita?

No idea, I had the stream on but forgot about it and had a bath.

I got lucky this morning, I saw that Lopez was a non-starter, and swapped him & Landa out for Woods & Yates but wasted 2 transfers. Hopefully I have enough transfers left for the last few races.

I fancied Higuita to do well so’kept him.  I was late home today so missed removing Bernal...I didn’t expect him to do as well as he did.

My dither was Yates out for Gaudu, Mollema or Nibali.

I thought i’d go for the one with no form who’s been a bit rubbish for a few months in the end. Sheesh.

How is P Latour rated at 3.0. I went through the 3.0's and I didn't see him there?

Latour has done nothing until the Vuelta this season and the values for this were done before that. Lucky 3 pointer if you found him....I did not.

Obviously not paying enough attention. End of season lethargy probably, Thanks for the prompt reply though.
