Everything went better than expected, still 5th, despite scoring only 74 points
It's alays nice when unusual picks like Dehaes or Cousin do well in these types of races, congrats to those who picked them!

This should keep me safe next week, just hoping these climbers will take the race a bit serious:

Tour de Med:
ROLLAND Pierre
PINOT Thibaut
TAARAMAE Rein
HUSHOVD Thor
SCHLECK Andy
DEKKER Thomas
BOBRIDGE Jack
MOLLEMA Bauke
VANMARCKE Sep
CHAVES RUBIO Johan Esteban

A shame this race is only 2.1 though, looking at the field 2.HC would be appropriate.

Completely missed Roux, remembered him two days or so before the deadline but somehow did not include him.

Also, don't go back to check how your first drafts are doing so far. Frustrating to see which safe bets I excluded just to get some "maybe top scorers" into the team.

Qatar
Thomas
Cancellara
Eijssen
Breschel
Appollonio
Chainel

Mallorca
Rojas Gil
Anton
Kuijswijk
Langeveld
Cattaneo

Méditerranéen
Hushovd
Eijssen
Schleck
Bobridge
Sicard
Bole

I thought I had Coquard, I was certain of it... looking at my team I didn't have him. Epic failure.

Matthews finished 20ish and Howard a dozen further back, probably had an inexperienced sprinter leading out an inexperienced sprinter. In any case Howard is overrated imo. Has to be around the Davis/Keukeleire mark with Goss/Kruopis/Matthews ahead.
I like Howard and selected him - and he just won a 1.1 race

But yeah a lot of competition for protected sprinter places at Ogre for sure.

I hope he does but he probably won't. Though because only ~30 people picked him a slightly lesser score than boonen may still have a pretty big impact.

Lol what is Matthews doing not earning me points

Hoping my team at Mallorca does better when the hills come next two days.

Nice for those who picked Howard though, I suppose he has the potetial to be quite a good pick.
