He might get 2000. He might get 2500. He might get 3000 if he goes well in worlds

He'll have better competition than Wiggins though you never know with sky riders of course. He might go all alien on us and win every race from now on.

Hmm... got around 250 points this week, can't be too bad, but it sure isn't good either.

Next week should be better; TGBM for a good GC in Andalucia, and Pozzato, Vanmarcke, Langeveld, Hushovd and some others for Omloop and KBK.

Well i have had a really bad week, also not helped by the fact Vichot could just escape with 2km left, taking the GC lead from Hushovd- who was evidently quite strong and had a team who wanted to keep the jersey amoongst other members of the team (but Oss had lost time the day before- so he wasn't that best option)

Oss (a rider who placed 2nd to Cav in a stage in the 2011 TDF) is then beat by Boom and Vichot.

Or he may crash next week ... every expensive pick is a gamble and you will need a lots of luck to avoid any misfortunes.

If Gilbert goes down, the game may not be over for those 94 teams because, well he is on 94 teams but if Cadel, Cav, Spartacus etc goes down, those teams are most likely out of the TOP 10.

And Froome? At 1427 only idiot or hardcore gambler would pick him. I will not even comment on picking up Contador or Sagan

Pretty bad week for me I think, 215 or there abouts

I'm with Hitch and starting to really regret taking Evans out of my team. He seems to have good form and think he will be into good profit.
Still can't work out why I thought Kittel would be a better choice, although he was cheaper so I could fit him in easier

Farrar is looking pretty damn good right now, gotta say. I think he could go 1200-1500. In the end I left him out because I wasn't sure if he still had it, but it seems so...
