Thanks for the good wishes: a bit of a scare, but she seems fine now, and back home.

Mr Loyalty: a tricky restriction, what idiot suggested that?  But I found someone with a sufficiently lazy agent: he had done two 4 year stints before embarking on what is to be a 6 year association with his current employers Christopher Juul Jensen.  Did a bit more research and began shortlisting for my own team (although after top tens in the first two years of the game, I have done appallingly ever since), and have come up with a better option.  Max Kanter has been on Sunweb and its development team for three years, with at least two to follow.  A return to what he did as a 20 year old would see a 2500% return.

I spy with my little eye, someone beginning with A:  there were a few possibilities, and at least this is easier to verify than the loyalty one.  I still have faith that he can recover: Fabio Aru.

Sorry: I wasn't going to recalculate the points left for those between 14 and 21 on the picks list, so I moved it.

Looking ahead to my next pick, does the drop from WT to Conti have to be in the current off-season, or is it anyone who has been WT and is Conti in 2020?
