I decided to make two teams... one to submit with all the good deals, then one for fun with only riders I like.

I did that the first year too! It was fun to have my 2 teams compete against each other when I wasn't really moving up and down the official list very much.

I also wanted to do this but then I realized all the riders I like are good deals

So I've found some motivation to take a good look at my potential team in the last week, put together a long list after looking at transfer info, neo-pros, plus some notes I took during the year. I have just over 100 names (about 30 less than last year's list, I think partially because I was taking more notes during the season last year and so I had a bunch of riders that ended up doing better at the end of the season).

I'm about 2/3 of the way through checking them individually more thoroughly. A quick survey down the list indicates to me that there are about 22-25 names that are a pretty sure thing at this point, leaving 8-10 spaces to try to fit everything. This is of course without taking into account total points, it's just a wishlist, so making the final thing fit will be interesting. But it's fun to start getting back into this again!

I think I have found 16 riders that have a guaranteed spot in my team so far.

35 riders at 7144. Edited it several times this week. Still not a sure thing that it's the team I'll be submitting as I may continue to edit it in the coming weeks.

Hope it's not the one you submit because then I will have to send you a PM asking you to cut two riders to get to the 33 riders limit

Thanks for letting me know. I thought it was 35. Looked past the rules this time thinking I had them well memorized
