The above list is by the way a prime example of how NOT to send in your team

My last last-minute change was Ponzi for Aru. I'd been unsure on Ponzi for a while as he was rumoured to have been named in the initial Padua investigation documents, so when the last few adjusted scores pushed me over the limit I plumped for Aru.

Trentin, Millar, Dowsett, Kruopis, Rollin, Offredo, Vorobyev, Duarte and Guardini were all in my team at some point, so will probably come back to haunt me.

Martin Reimer. Looking through the list it seems only 3 other teams have picked him. He costs 0 since he returns from retirement last year. He is likely to be super motivated so as long as he is back in decent shape. As a sprinter on a small ProConti team I think he is likely to at least get a fair share of opportunities even with Ciolek obviously being the main sprinter.

129 teams, 119 have included Andy Schleck (2, apparently, stripped from the team because of being over budget)

So 8 teams who either thought he wasn't good enough value, had forgotten about him, or are second choice teams.

Greatest optimist award:
to Phoenix118, who reckons that Tom Boonen can improve considerably on his price of 2202 points (and who also one of two entrants to have bought Contador at 2272)

Whats the point of having a second choice team if you dont even have schleck in it?

Hushovd almost as popular as Schleck: on 118 teams I believe. Bobridge and Geraint Thomas also on more than 100 teams.
