Would like to join in but have limited knowledge. The site says 9 riders but the Tour only has 8 per team this year. I assume that doesn't matter.?

You should take some time and read the rules. Your team is a sort of "pick 'n' mix". If you still don't get it after reading the rules, some of us will be able to help!
Good luck!

Put two teams in. It could be interesting comparing them.

Why?

Did you see the way he won the Giro in 1 day?

He is one of the best ITT's in the race, and there is a nice 31km ITT on the final stage before Paris, he doesn't need to be in yellow in the mountains just close enough to take it then.

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.

Porte either has one really bad day or he falls off.
Will Roglic last 3 weeks?
Who will have a bad day on the cobbles?
Will the first day be windy riding down the Atlantic coast?

Really hoping for a big showing from Landa.

Froome deserves to be the favourite of course. Would I back him after a grueling Giro? Nah. Hope he smashes it though!

I've not gone for Sagan or Froome. I like to pick outsiders, most of the time doesn't work but don't think I had Froome or Doumlin at the giro and got 4th.

Struggling to find unclassified riders at the moment

I don't think I've ever picked Froome and I won't this year. Some of the climbs will be too tough for Thomas IMO. I think Bernal is really good, but he will just be this year's Landa.
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'm in. Now starting to read through the above and note that some of my team are already being trashed. Might be back to the drawing board.

I've got Quintana in at the moment but taking him out would allow me to get rid of the 4 cost riders I have.

Sorry to be dim but once I've registered on Velogames how do I join the BBS league? Does my Velogames team name have to reflect my BBS username?

Froome looks like an alien. But he is no proven cheat,....yet.

I applaud his achievements, unless he is discredited.

Froome is a leg-end. It's gotta be him
