Teams
You need to pick 12 riders, to a budget of 3000 points from the 31 December 2016 CQ download (so you can use your research from the main or youth games): this spreadsheet at Dropbox might help.
All riders are available (except Sagan, who would more than blow the budget single-handed), there are no doper rules.

There are 20 one day races that score CQ points in th...
