It's always great to welcome new players to the game!

I'm known for being a generous host, so even if you forget to submit riders for half the races, you'll probably still beat me.
 
Phew, honestly I just lack the knowledge to do this. But I might throw in some random guesses until midnight.
You score the exact same amount of points in 2021 as I did in 2022, so having a bit of knowledge is not always better than blissful ignorance :sweatsmile:
And you could always just copy other people's predictions or exclusively select only Basque riders to make it less time consuming.

TDU

GC: Grace Brown, Brodie Chapman
Huntress: Ruby Roseman-Gannon

Something in me wants to make up new names for these three Australians, like Brodie Brown, Grace Gannon and Ruby Chapman, but I am going with these slightly unspectacular picks and their real names in order to have a better shot.

Also, the drawings are new, aren't they? Love them.
Christine Majerus is Luxembourgish champon of pretty much every cycling dicipline as well as drawing and knitting. I don't know if she's able to do the latter things while on a bike.


I was considering just writing "Bäckstedt" for the youth rider.
I only accept Elynor's married name from nown. But if you ever predict Schweinberger to win a race, I may give you the points, no matter which one of the two ends up winning.
 
With the first race almost under way, we're currently set for a ten player shootout, but other posters can still join the game free of charge :D

GODDAMMIT! I should have swapped Chapman and Brown. Chapman still wouldn't have gotten me any points, but at least Brown would have gotten me more points...
Well I also made the mistake of swapping out Manly for Wollaston after the criterium. And Wollaston only finished fifth in the youth classification, so my strategy of her winning the blue jersey by simply riding more races than the other contenders is off to a bad start. It'll be interesting to see if Christie, Wyllie and/or Smith will be able to challenge Van Anrooij in that competition.
 
Brown was never going to get around that course
Brown was the second best rider on Corkscrew in TDU and has proven herself to be pretty good on these kind of hills in LBL as well, so I don't think it was a certainty that she would struggle that much today. Especially not in a field that wasn't exactly the cream of the crop.
