    We doing it that way again?

    I had a different idea about constructing a real team - half serious, half tongue in cheek.

    The serious (boring) part of the team would see x amount of the 33 slots assigned to different types of riders.

    #1 GC rider
    #2 Young GC rider
    #3 Cobbles rider
    #4 Young cobbles rider

    etc etc

    This could be extended/varied/shortened as seen fit to include sprinters/TT-ers/puncheurs/domestics etc

    The more interesting part of the team would be given over to certain stereotypes of riders that you see in a lot of teams. For example:

    #14 The Colombian Climber
    #15 The Drugs Cheat (has served a ban)
    #16 The CX-er
    #17 The Trackie
    #18 The Pretty Boy
    #19 The Glue Factory One
    #20 The African
    #21 The Sponsors Pick (an East Asian)
    #22 The Injured One

    People could suggest/add to this list before the selection process starts.

    etc etc

    Combine the two halfs to give a roster of ~28 (with a few picks left over to mop up any unused points). Assign the slots randomly, et voila, a very strange team.

    While an interesting proposal, it is absolutely not in the spirit of the collective team.
    We're meant to pick one rider each, groaning about the others' picks as we go. :D

    We're meant to pick one rider each, groaning about the others' picks as we go. :D

    But that's what will happen!

    I might get assigned "The African" to select and no doubt you'd be the first to groan if I pick the wrong one.  :P

    People could also challenge picks if they feel they don't fulfil the criteria. For example, Joel is challenged after being assigned "The Injured One" and picking Gaviria as he missed one race last year due to a cold.

    Can anybody think of other categories? The Non-Traditional Cycling Nation One? The Next Big Thing™? The One Trick Pony?

    YES! The Less Famous Brother.

    My pick is Barry Froome. He's an accountant in Jo'Burg and hasn't owned a bike since 2003, but I feel that won't hold him back from picking up a few points here and there.

    You don't get it, do you?
