This is my first go at the game. Interesting format. I'm guessing it's actually quite difficult to work out the best team even if you have the year's results in front of you. For example has anyone had a go at working out retospectively what the maximum score was last year (or any year) ?

What site/sites are best for finding reliable startlists?

I have 7 Aussies and i think out of them only Porte will not ride the TDU (hopefully the nats though). I also have Gilbert and i consider him a favourite to win the TDU, whilst i have riders like Andy and Appollonio to maybe get high placings in stages. Hopefully Hushovd can also show signs of recovering at San Luis and Ospina/ Cobo can top 10.

My two least popular picks have been picked by 5 others. So not even close to having a unique rider... Can't see much happening in front before February really.

Of course its logical and I'm happy we get all these people around here. Unfortunately once they realize they are "out" of the competition they will be "out" of here too.

That being said, I think we will have more competition this year and it will be much tighter than before and that may keep more people around.

I hope you will be still around at least after Giro

It's hard to know with them since they have so many sprinters. Last year he was at least one who delivered most to his ability for them. Now they also have Matthews back and some more riders perhaps focusing more on the road than on track so perhaps that changes things. With the relative success he had last year I think he might struggle to make a massive improvement considering the added competition on the team. In the end though it comes down to who can deliver the goods so there is always a chance he will outshine the other sprinters.

Still, I imagine there will be more interest than the first year when Ricco getting suspended meant that two thirds of all teams had the rug swept from under their feet.

Akubra, 31 Aussies out of 32 total riders. And that 32nd rider is Sergent...from New Zealand.
