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
I doubt I will take him, but I just see him as more than a 600-700 points rider. Then again if I was faced with a choice between him and Quintana I would take Quintana any day.

I doubt I will take many guys in the 650-800 bracket as I am taking Gilbert. If I would be to take anyone it would be probably Quintana or one of the young talents TT who starred brightly last year.

My take was it was a slightly condescending way of making out that her cycling knowledge and experience is superior to Froome19, whilst still coming across as a friendly poster.

I second this. Don't know why the other posters are putting him down. We are talking about a guy who with a broken arm rode mano a mano with Schleck and Evans up Alpe d huez and then the next day smashed the time trial for 4th place.

I also think he'll be particularly effective if you take him with Joaquim Rodriguez. Then youd have both the mini explosive, and tt rouler type gc contenders covered for the Tour, putting you in a very good place to take the overall lead in the post TDF cq update in August

Even worse. Whole year built around the Tour, possibly only doing the one GT, and tougher competition inthat race than the Giro or Vuelta. Serious.

Stijn Devolder: one of the most popular picks last year at 145pts: now 1/3 off that price in this year's sale. Even more of an irresistible bargain than last year with his Radioshack relaunch, or has he tried everyone's patience too much by now? (I'm in the latter camp, I think, but if I think too much, I might rethink)

Evans... though i do not know if i will get him.
Devolder has tried my patience and i will probably not get him, he shall have to ride for Cancellara anyways.
