Well i failed at Qatar.

Appollonio, Kreder and Guardini did not get any GC points and Haller and Thomas did not get enough- 63 they had to work for Kristoff/ Eisel (who looks as if he might have been a good pick).

449 points just from Dubai...

Cav - 278
Phinney - 109
Thomas - 47
Stannard - 9
Fischer - 5
Cancellara - 1

A few bits from Mallorca and Med, too, which will puts me on 1291 so far. That might be tough to beat.

Surprised so few went for Cav, given his lack of team last year, and his addition of one this time.

Cav will have a good season this year no doubt, but will he repeat 2009? Unlikely. I'd say max 1400, maybe 1500 if he's especially good. Plus at 1150 he was still pretty expensive.

Was expecting zero points out of Qatar so the almost 50 from G came as a nice surprise. Add that to my Mallorca week and I think I'm looking pretty good for the week.

I think Cav could get quite a lot of wins though at small races, along with the ones at GT's. The fact he has a strong team also means he could continue to win the overall at those races. I also think he is harbouring thoughts of going well at the classics again.

2 thousand pointers in there, kind of risky but could pay off for sure.

My sprint squad of Cav, Howard, Farrar did OK so i've had a reasonable week despite my oversight of the French riders.

Cav is close to 200 points better off than at this time last year, and is therefore looking to be a very good pick (ask yourself whether you would have picked him at 950 - I certainly would have done).

Its a stretch to try and squeeze in 2, thousand pointers though let alone 3. Cav was 3rd on my.list but Gilbert and canc were cheaper.

Canc ain't looking all that atm though.
