Submitted my team. So many obvious picks... Someone who will be brave enough to leave some of the hot names and pick some less bright riders might earn a lot (like me w/o Jungels in my team )

I don't have Jungels and neither do the asian, Pentacycle and Tigerion unless they didn't pick that other Luxie

To be honest I haven't seen anyone mention him in any of the cq threads

I left out Phil in my first version but after hitch forced me to change my team I have now ended up without Alberto and with phil

It doesn't matter if you fail, just make sure you learn from your mistakes for the next edition.

He-he . In this case, you received some really good advice.

I saw him for the first time live in 2011 where he won the youth jersey in Clásica Internacional del Café. He really rode with great authority.

This year I saw him on the famous Alto de la Linea in RCN and he was insanely strong. Really a super-talent.

The question is if he will leave his mark right away. Maybe he will need a transition year!

Damn I haven't left myself enough time to do this properly. Ah well I'm sort of out of touch anyway.

We're starting to have a competition here. With 8 new teams submitted in the holidays, we're now at 56 teams. I'm still hoping for 100 entrants, but that might be a bit too optimistic
