Good rider who had a good year off a good race programme LAST year. Don't see how he'll surpass that significantly this year.

By getting some big points in week long races and classics.

I believe he has the potential and if he places high on GC in such races then he can easily improve on that score, particularly in his favourite race of Paris Nice. Though he will need to produce a Giroesque performance next year, which is easier said than done.

Pup don't listen to him. Listen to me

Don't pick him. he can score maybe 800-900 if he's really lucky.

As hitch said spread the wealth. pick 2 or 3 for 650-700 points combined and if you dont have enough places left, throw out some other guys
