I'm in! Somehow managed to win our Dauphine league (crashed and burned at Suisse) so hoping for a good showing but I highly doubt it :)

All the 8 point all rounders and climbers are ****, it's so annoying. The top riders are so much more expensive than last year.

Yeah, it's not going to be easy.
It sucks that Castroviejo isn't riding, for 4 points he'd have been an awesome pick (ITT and assists points).
I'll go with 2 sprinters, 1 normal and 1 as a wildcard, my team Mors Sola will compete once again (I was able to win the 2014 TdF CN forum league with a small margin of 6 points :D )

Gallopin at 8 is great. Izagirre at 8 could turn out good as well. But only Izagirre is climber/allrounder, so I agree with your point. You get much more value at 10.

Many, many good 6 pointers as well. Vuillermoz, Pantano etc.

Argh. I'm gonna have to pick a Castro replacement. That sucks.

Same here, though Katie is hanging tight. We usually get one or two in the top ten, but this year is funky for sure.

My biggest flops have been Pinot so far and Sicard has brought me 41 points only. But because I have Pantano, Vuillermoz and Alaphilippe I managed to improve my situation today.

Flopped with Teklehaimanot and Irizar (thought they'd be much more active in breaks so made sense for lower picks). Gerro was doing fine but he's dropped out. Also had Martin for breaks but of course, no dice.

I see I failed by not picking a punchy kind of stage winner - picked Gerro and Valverde, forgot about Bling and Bala being on Quintana support duties - d'oh! Sagan and Balaphilippe are scoring huge points left and right. Picked Greipel as my sprinter and he's both won jack and actually dropped out of two flat sprints where he should have been scoring big. Had Bardet and Rolland as climber roles but the first is embroiled in the GC battle thus winning jack. The second had a crash. Really, my only decent score is for Froome so far with Bala a distant second. I mean, nobody's been miserable, but lots of disappointment all around.
