Very quickly made team by me so I have surely missed some good riders due to lack of research. Had 5 certain picks with Enger, Intxausti, Tanner, Castrillo and Bol, while the rest were a bit randomly picked (mostly going for faster guys that are sure to score a bit) and a good pick like Florez was completely overlooked in the haste. One unique pick for me with Sebastian Lander, that used to be a big talent and then has done nothing for several years, but some months ago it was reported he had had been ill with hypothyroidism since his early BMC time and had then been reacting badly to the medicine for years, but that he had now switched to a new medicine that seemed to have solved his problems and that he now wanted to make a big comeback and start winning again next year, so hopefully that will work out for him making him a good pick and also saving his career. I see Pidcock is very popular and he was close to make my team also, but I just think riders on the smaller british teams usually score very low so I skipped him. Same with the 2 very tempting young germans Appelt and Bokeloh that are unique picks on Search' team. Again their team usually scores very low, but they were 2 of my last cuts still.

Am I right that people only picked cuadros because his other two names are Alvaro Morata? I mean how can you not pick that guy :lol:
I picked him out of a sense of trust of Caja Rural's knowledge of young Spanish climbers. Who is Alvaro Morata?
A footballer. :D
But man, I swear picked him only because of his results: 1st in Valenciaga, 2nd in Gorla and the National, isn't bad.


BTW, very good unique pick for "search" with Heiner Parra. Think he's a good searcher.

thanks ;)

not sure what kind of program they'll have though, I didn't really take into consideration that the Vuelta a Colombia isn't a UCI race anymore. But seeing GW lining up in Tachira next week could be a good sign
 
right in the centre of popularity which will do, 5 out of the top 6 picks, I don't have Florez Lopez which I think was deliberate, I can't remember who were the 3 or 4 riders I dropped from my initial list but the fact that I recognise his name means I must have at least stumbled upon him during my limited research. a limited research that meant I missed Tanner and Bol who look like useful picks.

I have never heard of my 2 unique picks but my reasoning was something along the lines of:

Ben Turner - very young and English but he is on a Belgian Continental team so should do a lot of races
Norbert Banaszek - on the same Polish Continental team as Maciej Paterski and thought I would take a chance on him

He raced for the Fundacion Contador team in 2013 and 2016 :) yes last year at Caja Rural U23 he seemed to flourish

A guy who could have been a very good exclusive pick is Juan Lopez-Cozar. Along with Samitier, Castrillo and Cuadros, one of the best Spanish amateur 0-pointers that jump to profs.
 
Damn, this came up right in the middle of main game entry madness and I am not seeing it until now! When I saw it suggested on the main game thread I thought it was a great idea - nice work, rote. Well good luck everyone, I'll for sure play next year.
 
In this game I have not won any points yet :redface: . In this week, in Valencia, one of my youngsters will be running, the Italian Michele Gazzoli, from Polartec. Let's see if he gives me the first points, to give us a little encouragement :razz:

I accepted a late entry, DJW who will participate with an *. This is their team:
BOUHANNI Rayane
DE KETELE Kenny
ENGER Sondre Holst
FLOREZ LOPEZ Miguel Eduardo
INTXAUSTI ELLORIAGA Beñat
KELLY Jake
PIDCOCK Thomas
RICE Michael
TURNER Ben
VISSER Louis

After almost one month of racing, all but one team scored. And we have an undisputed leader in Nicosix, scoring 84 points with Enger, Florez, Castrillo and Scott Bowden who I never before heard of. This unique pick, who participated in the TDU (and was 3rd in the Mountains Classification) and Cadel Evans Race in the TDU contributed 28 points thus being the second most scorer after Enger. The later one is on every team except the one of jon_ezeitza leaving them without points.

7 of the 82 chosen riders scored, the others being unique pick LYONS Angus, PARRA BUSTAMENTE Heiner Rodrigo and TRARIEUX Julien.
