Can you edit your team and send in a new one if you have realised that a rider in your team is going to do ****?

Yes, Hugo has said that you can send updates until the 5th

Grab a few 0 pointers and throw them in there. Did you have any points left over?

No points leftover, and i was indeed going to throw in some 0 point riders but i couldnt seem to locate them? Couldnt find any in the ranking page at least, that stopped at 1 point.

Go to overview and click one of the rankings under teams (Protour, procont, etc.), you can scroll through the teams where it will display each riders current ranking and points. Any zero pointers it will show with dashes instead of points. Good way to find the zero pointers.

There are some must-pick zero pointers really.

Sitting in a camping ground on holidays dreading, all relaxed when I read I'm over the limit and remembering how long it took last year to change my team from a 7501 team to one below the limit! I now know what the first thing I need to do when I get home and it's not mowing the lawn.

Seriously, if you don't have 33 riders, just add some random 0 pointers. Even if they score just 10 points combined, that's always better than no points at all.

Not neccesarily. The average gap between places is 94 points

What about this year when 5th and 6th (I think) were 1 point apart
