    Hello to you all. Anyone up for fantasy cycling? It's time to test your true predictive powers, that means not just picking Cav for every flat stage SB. I've created an NSC League so we can find out is the true King Geek. Rather annoyingly it seems they have changed the rules this year so any advantage I had previously is gone. One top tip though, do not pick ypur team for each event until the start list is announced, I got caught out by this several times last season due to last minute line up changes.

    It's probably nice to be Olympic champion. Like winning Gent-Wevelgem or something.

      Just looked at the riders competing this year, possibly the strongest field i've ever seen for this race.
      It's a marathon, not a sprint.

      I'll be up for a bit of this. I probably won't do that well, but I'll give it a go.

      that means not just picking Cav for every flat stage SB.
      I resent that, Cav always starts slow.
      Now if you'd said Gilbert on an up hill finish...

      Great idea, definitely in, I need to prove to a few people on here I know as much about cycling as Clarkson.

      Difficult to pick riders for this early in the season. I went for a bunch of Aussies as they will want to impress, especially Green 'We want to be Sky so much it hurts' Edge riders.

      True, they have also thrown in an uphill finish and some extra mountains I believe.

      Do you think a name like "LAs left ball" would be deemed as poor taste?
