Tour of Flanders(provisional, I guess):
AAEN JORGENSEN Jonas
BOONEN Tom
KRISTOFF Alexander
BRESCHEL Matti

I want Matti to win and then Tom second. And Jonas to grab another 5 points. I've given up Kristoff. I AM DISAPPOINT.

Pais Vasco (same here):
KING Benjamin
PUCCIO Salvatore
HERRADA LOPEZ Jesús
FARIA DA COSTA Rui Alberto
RUYGH Rob (hopefully he can do something so that he gets his first points)
BRAJKOVIC Janez
KISERLOVSKI Robert
ULISSI Diego
HERNANDEZ BLAZQUEZ Jesus
DE LA FUENTE RASILLA David

Pretty happy with these line-ups, I hope it stays like this.

Another top 10 for Kiserlovski I hope, and Brajkovic, Jesus, Costa and Ruijgh in the top 10 too, De La Fuente for a stage win out of a break, and I hope either Puccio or Ulissi (or both ) can grab a stage.

Tour of Flanders:
Matteo Trentin
Matti Breschel
Martijn Maaskant
Sep Vanmarcke
Stijn Devolder

Pais Vasco:
Sergio Henao
Wout Poels
Stefan Denifl
Janez Brajkovic
Robert Kiserlovski
Fredrik Kessiakoff
Arnold Jeannesson
Thibault Pinot
Jelle Vanendert

If only I hadn't missed the obvious picks Boonen for the classics, and Velits for the GC, I'd be pretty content with my team, but alas, I'll just start comparing myself to the other people without Boonen for now on.

Now scoring a lot of points but later in the season it won't be that good anymore, with all my classic riders

Yeah, well if you look at my team you'll see that's definitely not my style of choosing, as I have one of the least risky (big-points-wise) teams. However, even if Valverde gets, say, 2500 points to equal last year, you can then fill your team with super cheap picks that will cost less than 100 points that will possibly get you more than 500 points. Again, big risk because you have to pick all the right talents, but it can work. And, perhaps because of my own cautious approach, I really admire someone who takes a big risk.

Whoa, just did the calculation for the week and it's 1048. My best week by far, but I'm worried that I'm gonna move down, crazy. Still, pretty good considering my grand total of 15 points from the GC of Catalunya.

Well I guess it was all in a weeks work. The results from Gent-Wevelgem, the overall from Criterium International, overall at Catalunya, and all that type of stuff. Those results were put in today so that's why I put today.
