yep. The downside of this game is having riders you dislike on your team, if you want to win..

Don't you hate it when a target rider doubles their score in November...

Even as a Norwegian I really don't like Thor, but he is excellent value for next season nevertheless. So he is in my first draft, but might be dropped to get in more young talents. I also considered an old australian TDF winner after ditching Spartacus to get below 7500, but luckily found a more likeable option

Thor is a possiblity.. but I just get the feeling he is gone.

Even so he still could easily double his score even if he is "gone" so to speak..

I started to like Thor after his 2010 WC win then at last years TDF he was great. Sure he did not win a classic but he tried.

He may be past his prime but still a good pick, he has the potential to get anywhere from 800 to over a 1000 points.

No he didn't. He rides like a loser and a coward. The way he races, he will never get anything better than 2nd in a monument.

He tried to win the race by making sure Cancellara could not attack so much, so he could then beat him in the sprint. Why would he pull when he had JHVS up the road?

It's not about last year. It's about every year. He is the most pathetic cobble rider I have ever seen, compared to his strength.
