I had Bobridge and Lloyd last year. Needless to say how dreadful it was...

But Bobridge did the Olympics and a track programme last year.

What does everyone think about Klodi? In my view he seems as if he could go way better than this years performance but he might be too old (less of a doubt) or could be banned. Is the risk worth it?

Brambilla is one of the few climber on the team. I think he'll be the leader in the Giro and have a free role in the classics.


What about Guillaume Boivin? He comes off a great season and he is now in the WT. I need a french canadian and I don't know which one I should take. Boivin, Boily or Houle?

I would take it if he were on an other team, but since he is riding for Radioschleck, he won't have a lot of opportunity to ride for himself (maybe Paris-Nice and Pays Vasco)

And what's the cost of Pellizotti?

euskaltel's leaders anton or nieve? Or neither :P So much potential for both yet for me there is not enough assurance that they can perform well

Not worth it IMO, too old and is on a downward trend. I fail to see him improving much at 37 years old. He might go a little better next year than this year, but I doubt he will be scoring anywhere close to the 800's he has scored in the past.

Pellizotti is 987, his 2009 score.

Just submitted the team. The following riders were in my first save but got replaced. Just to have it documented if they score really big next year

WELLENS Tim
COLBRELLI Sonny
DEHAES Kenny
ARNDT Nikias
POSSONI Morris

In an even earlier save I had Spartacus and young russian Victor Manakov, and in addition I have an Excel save with around 40 riders that almost made the final team. I had promised myself to pick more sprinters this year, but it seems I have failed miserably at that attempt

I haven't actually even started this, very lazy/not with it. Who's this year's version Marko Kump?
