Even without Ballan I don't see Oss getting many opportunities to be leader. He'll probably be more of a domestique for the leaders. There's always the chance he could get a really good result from the breakaway in one of the big races, but hoping for that is risky. I had Oss listed as a possible pick but there were always riders I had more faith in to deliver, so he never made it in.

Selecting this years' team is quite hard. The youngsters who got me lot of points last year like Henao, Moser, Quintana and even the likes of Kelderman and Slagter have overpriced themselves.
I'm also not too confident about this years' neo-pros.

The uncertainty surrounding some riders named in the Mantova Investigation makes it even more difficult .

Daniel Oss was in my short list by I've dropped him from the team i have selected for now.

Is anyone taking Bole? An absolute bargain, but being Slovenia's version of Yaroslav Popovych makes him very risky. Also unknown if he will feel at home in VCD's allsorts lineup.

I have him in my team currently. Very risky pick though because he could get popped any time.
If i find a better bargain i'll definitely drop him.

Very. Stay away from him.

Is it likely that Katusha will take a step down to pro conti if they can't get into the WT? I've got one Katusha rider but am not sure if I should keep him if Katusha goes away.

Is Kash not racing this year? He was on the TdU lineup for Astana but apparently didn't sign the code of conduct?

But as this is the name dropping thread; I think this was quite disapponting Hugo. You should at least hint at some names if posting in this thread
I noticed that also. IMO it's a clinic matter and I'll look forward to it being explained in the future.

Made a point of submitting my team before reading the thread - there's always one obvious pick you miss (edit - fuuck it,I swapped him in ) Unsure why I didn't put Gilbert in either.

Anyone else buying Rujano? I said he would never materialise at Vacansoleil, but I threw a team together last minute and decided to take the chance.
