I put my team in.

29 riders, 7495 points.

I have seven riders under 100 points, only one a questionable doping guy (the one others have mentioned at 60 points).

I'll admit I'm not exactly picking super logically. I've got 7 riders from the US... many young that probably aren't going to develop as quickly as my heart would want them to.

Don't worry I guess most are not completely logically.

Yes, I got Mollema in there, now I know he will win the Tour and the Vuelta (not the giro, as he won't start there) but still the rest of my team is not completely logical :p

Hopefully someone will bump this in a few weeks (if deadline is new years eve).

Well, if you count all riders in the CQ ranking there are about 3300 that rode during 2010 I think.

I wonder what the winning score might be...Must be possible to reach 15-20000 at least for the best one.

If anyone scores less than 7500 points I suggest they get banished from this forum.

This sounds like a great game. I'm using (mostly) my PCM team!!

How is it that everyone is using less than exactly 7500 points? Get some nobody that had 5 points on the year... some points is better than 0 points, right??

Well, if we can have 25-30 riders, I'm afraid I'll have to submit some changes. I have a secret weapon in mind, one rider who's not officially dodgy (even though everyone knows he is), has not been injured, will probably have a great season next year and, best of all, is completely free.

Wait, I thought it was 33, as I already send my squad in, but I came out at 32 riders

I wonder if it's the same rider I have on my team.

I suppose we should wait for an official confirmation for now.

It probably is. I doubt the description fits many riders who aren't Qatari or something.

Free riders?
I thought the whole idea was that we had to buy riders using their CQ dollar value, based upon their 2010 CQ ranking.
If they don't appear in this year's CQ ranking at all..............

I had the same thought about one rider in particular, but thought him ineligible.

Well, if a rider rode in 2010 but didn't score any points then his value would have to be 0 wouldn't it? I don't see why such a rider would be excluded...

Why not? It's not like the situation would be any different in practice if the guy had finished a single Pro Tour race and scored 5 points that way.

Hell, he might not even be worth it even for free! :p
