    I'm happy with my unclassified riders and sprinter(s), it's the rest of the team that's causing me headaches.

    The leagues getting big

    Some multiple entrants though. fifi_bellamy with two teams in. I'm inclined to DSQ the second team (alphabetically) if both are still there by race start time - sorry fifi if you are reading.

     This has become a futile exercise in procrastination.
    Change riders, then change them back, rinse and repeat.
    Bottom line is a horribly weak team, either in terms of GC or sprinters and puncheurs.
    I always end up wondering how other folks managed to produce such strong looking teams.

    Well done Tim Christian! I noticed that you Slappers were hanging round the top of the pops for a while, but you seem to have had a bit of a nosedive towards the end. Archie had the highest finishing position of recognisable VR members.

    The riders you wanted to pick from each category were:

    All rounder: Froome and Valverde
    Climber: Bardet and Majka
    Sprinter: Sagan
    Unclassified: De Gendt, Pantano and Kreuziger
