Last year I made Top 20 which was a surprise considering I was one of very few having doper GALIMZYANOV on my team. Not sure if I will be able to repeat that as the competition is pretty tight this year and I'm missing some "obvious" picks.

Good luck to all!

I agree with those who predict the game will be closer this year. I think so as well.

Oh, and then I just stumbled across this old message:

I guess no matter how much I wish it was different, there is no way to totally ignore bargains and focus solely on a pure talent-squad. It simply won't add up. Back to the drawing board!

Thanks again for an awesome game!
So one would imagine that Jakob used another tactic this year, right? Well, uhm, no. His oldest rider is Taaramäe. Jakob - what do you have to say to your defence?

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.
It looks as though he atleast will go head to head against Guardini in Langkawi

Watch Berhane win Tropicale now I dropped him for scoring too heavily in November

Nothing. Guilty as charge.

My conscience just doesn’t allow me to add P. Gilbert. F. Cancellara, C. Evans. T. Hushovd or Andy Schleck. Ect – Ect… All those obvious names. I just don’t find it fun to have a squad who is similar to more or less everyone else’s.

I would rather finish dead last I guess . For me this game gives me another reason to follow the young guns extra close. That’s enough for me. So while everyone will probably be off to a great start with P. Gilbert for-example, I will instead be following Tom Jelte Slagter, Elia Favilli or Kenny Elissonde with suspense on Old Willunga.

I stand by my last sentence as well though. It truly is an awesome game and regardless of how everyone plays it, whether it’s to win or just to follow some of your favorite riders or whatever, I truly wish everyone have as much fun as I do during the year.

I strongly hope I am around in May as well… Then, we can continue the debate Hugo… I am always up for discussing some of your picks… But more so the likes of Diego Rosa or Emilien Viennet for-example than Andy Schleck or Davide Rebellin.

Good luck tonight with Rohan Dennis. I don’t know the course, but surely he will top-3?...

I think he'll do good(reasonable) numbers for the few that selected him. Of which I'm surprised tha it was only 5 of us.

I was a little cautious of picking Berhane after picking Chtioui the year before, who did ok and doubled his score but was mainly stuck riding a lot of 1.2 races and I feared the same may happen with Berhane.
