My knowledge of cycling is next to nothing, but a good cyclist friend enters this and I just would love to beat him!

Same, plus I'd got a nicely balanced team with him in it, whereas now I can't get one I'm happy with

(mind you I always think I've got a nicely balanced team til the race starts :-) )

Another who had Pidcock and a well rounded squad!
Good luck all. Strade is one of my favourite races.

Lovely bit of acrobatics from Ala. Very lucky to still be in the race. Pretty much just blown off the road by a crosswind gust.

Benoot out, Gogl out (so I'm 2 down already), Mohoric, Bling, Campanaerts, Versmeech, Van Moer all out as well

Just about got my team changed in time, although tbh its a bit of a lottery. Cav plus a few second string sprinters from T-A, plus Sagan. Went Sagan more because he'll probably be a popular choice but not sure whether he'll be up for a sprint just a few days before MSR

Hopefully get a few more days notice before MSR. Just seen that Ala is out with a chest infection, which is a shame as he'd be sure to light up the Poggio. Still plenty of talent there though.

of course after Strade the talk is whether Pog will attack on the Cipressa, but almost certainly its going to be the Poggio and the subsequent fight to catch whoever escapes over the top.

New competition opened. Spring Classics. Difficult to get a balanced squad within budget. There is need for a sprinkling of 4's

I remembered to go in and set my superclassico team for MSR but forgot completely about the separate spring classics game☹️

Anyway, De Panne is on today in superclassico if anyone hasn’t realised

And there'll be a record ten Brits at the Grande Partenza, including three in the EF squad. Judging by PCS archives I believe the previous record was nine in 2009.

Just added myself (late) into the league - you might not notice as I am 22nd of 22, on less than half the points of 21st.

Overall Rank: 17636 of 18268

Only got points from 1 rider - thought Demarre would have got something from the intermediate sprint as he got jersey points :?
