From 2nd last to 2nd. Not bad for a last minute entry! Going to be a wild ride... Should be the best tour in years.

Nice 1 rod. I like the idea of no trades. And yes should be a great tour. I'm tipping the winner to be outside the top 4 favourites this year.

Greipel is doing the job for me, but I've lost Gerrans and Bauer now, and I swapped Tony Martin out rather than choosing the cheapest possible 9th rider. Hoping Contador and Quintana are forced onto the offensive in the mountains

Yeah Tony Martin and Rohan Dennis were the two guys humed and hared about and eventually missed out on. Peter Sagan was the first guy I picked and surprised nobody much went for him. Will be interesting to see how well Froome goes in the mountains. He is the one guy who is surprising me so far. You can't have all of them I guess :-)

Yeah also like the idea of the set and forget game without trading (even though impey and now bauer are gone). Way too much trading and carry on with the likes of supercoach.

The teams can't swap and trade when they lose a rider, so why should we in the game? I agree, I like it, it's not like fantasy premier league over 40 weeks, it's one race, 3 weeks, and everyone does not finish

Well done Stydz! And thanks to all that joined the league. Next year I will start this a lot earlier. As this year was a last minute decision to make this league.

Congrats Strydz, Pulled out a great win with Pinot the difference yesterday. Neither of us had Froomey so I think Cyclo was a bit stiff personally after leading for so long.

Anyway well played everyone and thanks Bardy for setting up the league
Cheers, Rod.

Good stuff, I had a reasonable run to the top half of the table, thanks in no small part to the gorilla and valverde.

Cheers matey!
Pinot was an early disappointment but came home strongly but having 2nd and 3rd in the GC is what got my Pigs over the line. The Velogames comps are getting better each year and if you guys want a real challenge then check out the Volta a Portugal game starting tomorrow, it's a real close your eyes and guess type of game :D
