Does anybody know Coquard's schedule by the way?

Van Leijen could do even worse. The fact that he had to abandon San Luis due to fatigue isn't exactly a promising start.

Not picking Roux might hurt me a bit as I had him on my shortlist. At least Coquard and Bardet started scoring.

Technically, you need about 500 points on average from every rider on your team to win this game and even though he is a great talent, and most likely will be profitable rider, I just dont see him grinding 500 points this season.
He is Europcar's, probably the second strongest team in France, only real sprinter. If 2011-Ravard with less team support was able to score 500+ points in French sprinters classics and if Dumoulin does it every year, I don't see any reason why he could not also do it. I don't think he'll score 850 points like Démare/Bouhanni last year but 500 is a real possibility. BTW considering his cost he would be a great pick well before he reached the 500 points.
Roux and Bardet were good today and might pick up a good GC considering that the differences won't be big on a 10k ITT.

Yeah, me too. Strange, he fit the mold of exactly what I was looking for - fast, not many points, focused on track last year, on a team with lots of chances in small races... and yet I took him off with no note of explanation on my spreadsheet. Ah well.

Hopefully my blind faith in keeping Haussler in my team every year will pay off this week and should get some results in Qatar

Bummer, didn't hear about that.

I think next year I'm going to stack my team with random crap Bbox riders.
