I envisage a requirement for a contract with a  WT/Pro Conti team with no previous announcement of early-mid season retirement during 2015.

Just thinking about it a bit more, I'd also consider not allowing any riders from Team Novo Nordisk.

Due to their special circumstances they're more than half full of virtually risk free zero cost riders. If they weren't excluded you might end up with certain unnamed managers using their little grey cells and thinking "Since I can't use the retired riders tactic any more, I'll replace it with the Novo Nordisk tactic".

    Before the final rankings, apologies to MC Mountain for false confidence of placing him in the top 10 previously,

    To be honest I was suspicious about my score last month, but couldnt work out why it would be wrong - but if CQ changed the spelling of a rider that I had already acquired points with (but wasnt necessarily scoring big points in that month) that makes sense.

    re next year, agree limiting to contracted rider seems wise, but wonder whether the pre season mid season retirement announcement should still be allowed. but perhaps with 25 day minimum race days, to make them a bit riskier?
