Maybe SHPILEVSKY Boris

Yeah.

Can't find anyone of actual talent going down that far.

Not touching Coen again.

I would take Boivin and Houle. It is a pity but Boily will not be joining a WT team next year.

Thx for the Klodi replies.

I admit I'm new to this so what do people think about Daniel Oss' chances next year.
With Ballan out for probably the entire classics season will he get a much more senior role in the classics that GVA isn't targetting. Or even as co leader?

Naturally with Ballan out Oss will get more opportunities but there is also Hushovd who will probably want to be leader. Anyway I believe Oss can score ~300 points anyway and probably more if he gets to lead in big races.

I have both of them in the team, not sure they will both do well but I think one of them will get a good result and bump their rankings

This game is hard

I've had Oss in my team every year, without much success. I'm dropping him now, so he'll probably score bucketloads of points...

i'm in the same boat. Oss made the shortlist but in the end got nowhere near the final team.

I was stranded on 7510 for a long time, desperately trying to keep everyone I wanted, then found another handy 0 pointer, kicked out my 10 point rider and my team is ready

14 sub-100 pointers and one rider who I've picked every year now.

I raise with 16 sub-100 and two ever-presents!

Four others were dropped for the first time: Kashechkin, Plaza, Oss and Sicard. Kash was the last to be cut from the final draft. I still harbour big hopes for him. I've finally lost faith in Sicard. So, can he please wait another year before coming good?
