Expensive picks

It is the biggest buys, and the proportion of the budget entrusted to him/them, that determine the main hopes of any team in these games.  Here are the riders selected who cost 700 points or more:

Dumoulin and Pinot: Bicycle Boy      
Aru   and Lopez: Blues in the Bottle, Search, Shalgo   
   and Lopez: BikeRacer33, Fauniera, GPBlanco, Handbrake, Laarsland, Leadbelly, LightBing, Minessa, Semir S, Squire
   and Yates: Los Brolin, Mellow Velo                        
   and S Bennett:Tigerion                           
   on his own: Axl, Comodoro, Del1962, Gotland, Nathanptz, Russell23, SafeBet, Salvarani, The Pirate81, Trudgin

Lopez and Pozzovivo: Googolplex                           
   and Yates: Rote Laterne, Scrool07                        
   on his own: Armchair Cyclist, Caruut, Drebola, Hakkie, Kazistuta, Koronin, Premier Andrew, Ruvu75, Vladimir

Poels with Yates and S Bennett: Yellow Knight                           
   and Yates: Bminchow                           
While half the teams made room for 2 of these expensive riders, and Yellow Knight even managed to squeeze in 3, three teams invested rather more cautiously: Amis Velo and Carlo Altrensig both have George Bennett as their most expensive riders, and Chiron picked no-one dearer than Mareczko.

Odd that nobody selected Aru without also including Lopez.
