Go to "Join a League", whack in the league number at the start of this thread then make sure you "confirm entry". Easily missed.

In two minds about Froome. He is going to get so much stick over this whole affair. If I was him I would park my ego for 12 months and go for it next year. I know he has the right to race, but is it worth the hassle?

As for Movistar, has Quintana trained enough to be taken seriously? Will Landa ride to help Quintana or will he just do his own thing ( not unlike Valverde)? I also like Soler but his role will be similar to Bernal's in the Sky team.
I think and hope Landa will do his own thing, he sat up to wait for Froome when Quintana was nowhere. Guess we'll see.

flying into lyon on 17th, got a car hired to drive to Bourg St Maurice. We booked a apartment there on the day the route was announced. Goinf to spend the Wednesday walking up a alpe to watch it, then it actually starts in Bourg on the Thursday, so we'll watch the start and then find a bar......can't quite decide on if am going to abuse Valverde or not.

Going over for the 'pave' stages in northern France on the 15th (assuming England aren't in the World Cup Final that day which is unlikely). Looking forward to it.

That should be good. I will make an effort to get over for pave at some point. We have friends in Chamonix so we're going there on the Saturday before we fly back on Sunday. I am trying to persuade the wife that we really should spend Friday watching the race but it's proving to be a hard sell at the moment.

Stage 3's 35km TTT will see SKY and BMC obliterate the rest of the peleton if the TTT's in the Dauphine and TdS are representative. Even a rider winning stages 1 and 2 will struggle to be in yellow after that. Sagan might do well in some sprints but looking at his Bora team i cannot see them being within a minute of SKY and BMC.

Therefore i think Porte and Froome will take a buffer into the mountains. What will be interesting is how Movistar then try to use their 4 GC riders to pressurise SKY and BMC.

Froome is rightly favourite though IMO with Porte probably just behind him.
Even after winning 3 GTs in a row? I just can't see how he can win with the Giro in his legs against a load of fresh, top riders. It's one thing at the Vuelta when everyone is spent, but this is a different ball game.

I would usually agree with you but he only rode 1 day in the Giro, more like a training ride

Just think with his rest that I can see why he starts favourite. That said he is not in my velogames.

You might be right but that seems an incredibly risky strategy. I thought the crashes had an effect. Like you say, the TTT in the first week will be key but if Froome has no time over everyone in week 1 I don't see how he can hang on. I just think the Giro is too hard.

BBC has all his data from his (Froome) Giro effort on their website today - starting reading it, will finish later but seems interesting

Froome and Porte will take an advantage timed in minutes rather than seconds over most of the GC rivals into the second week IMO.

Yellow at the end of the first week will be interesting. Would have thought the peleton will be relatively close behind the winner of stage 5 but stage 6 with 2km of climbing at the end as a cat 3 climb will probably see time gaps that might give someone from a team who has done alright on the TTT the jersey for a few days.

GVA looks a pretty solid option for finishing top 2 in the TTT and then having a chance of yellow on the 2 hilly stages. Probably up against Kwiakowski but is 4 points cheaper.

I took out Quintana. My team is strange, it only has 1 rider that is big time, and he's not really big time.

I'm in. Hardest choices in a velogames so far. Have there ever been so many possible stage winners or podium contenders??

I'm sticking with my theory of not picking anyone who rode the previous GT. So no froome for the third GT running. Dumoulin was tempting though. Good value if he really is going to have a go at the overall.

Quite a good turn-out so far but there are some others who have been put off by the WC.
