Haha, yeah your top 4 riders are about as good as it gets halfway through the season. And the two that I don't have (Evenepoel and Girmay) both have very good opportunities to further add a lot of points.I wonder how unusual that is. When you start with that many points it's tough to score more over half a season (guys that can drop 450 easy in a few months of racing tend to cost a lot more than that so they have to score more too) whereas lower priced riders only need a couple good results to break even. Still it's funny to see how we collectively whiffed on the best high priced riders. It looks better if we include Evenepoel but I'm not sure that thinking Remco is a good rider is much of a flex of our cycling knowledge.
If we combine your lower priced riders with my more expensive ones we could make a hell of a team. Not sure skidmark would let us do that unfortunately.
As I said above, I need my big names to step up, but I don't quite see either of Moscon or Pidcock turning out to be amazing picks. But I'll be in trouble if they don't. De Lie can't continue to carry my team indefinitely! Saying that, he also has some very good point scoring opportunities going forward. An injury to him would be disastrous for me though, touch wood.
