League Name:   Velorooms
League Code: 58432719

If you have been part of any of the races so far this year then there is no need to enter the code again, you will automatically join the league. The code is only for new entrants, but if in doubt use the code.

If you are interested in winning the season long league please keep your manager name the same throughout the year and ideally have it the same as your VR name or Twitter handle. If you change it, you run the risk of not getting the correct amount of points. Also please limit yourself to one entry or you risk disqualification from that event.

I'm happy with my three unclassed riders so far. The other six will require a bit more thought.....and a huge dollop of good luck.

I am pretty sure of my one 4-pointer, three 6-pointers and one 8-pointer. The more expensive ones ... :-x

Sivakov instead of Ackermann, not the brightest of decisions by me

Rest Day #1

Ackermann the essential pick so far and those with him will be hoping he can break the 1000 point barrier in the next couple of days.

Dumoulin and Gaviria are the big DNFs so far, but at least the Colombian picked up 500+ points before going home. All hope is not lost for those that have them as I'm sure others wil come a cropper or blow up spectatularly somewhere down the line.

I'm almost certain I was 6th when I checked the league last night. Why would you join a league after the competition has ended? Unfortunately i didn't take a screenshot then....

Anyway Raffaele doubles up and adds the Giro crown to his win at California. Congratulations!

The riders you wanted to pick from each category were:

All Rounder: Nibali and Roglic
Climber: Carapaz and Landa. Masnada was a great cheap option.
Sprinter: Ackermann
Unclassified: Rojas (!), Carthy and Cattaneo. However there were no essential picks in this category.

Current top-ten:

Followed by a whole squad on 28 points.
