Team complete now, which allows me to answer the question :beer:
I guess I did ok, mostly disappointed with Wiggo (didn't read the news), Ponzi (a crisis on the Italian front made me reach for a doper), and Mollema (thanks to increased activity and know-how around the league needed to ignore my rule of thumb where I only offer contracts that riders should double-outscore, and he can't possibly pull off a 1320 season). Really happy with David Lopez and good ol' Sylvain tho :disco:

Mollema will do ok but you are right, he isn't good enough for over 1,000.

I'm really pleased with my team on paper, just hope they aren't all racing San Luis, Algarve and Ruta del Sol. D'oh, I should have checked the spreadsheet instead of assuming all these were in there. Oh well.

Particularly pleased with Tschopp  :DL:

Even over 1000 is nowhere near what I need :(

You will be up there at the ending barring injury disasters. Your team is definitely one of the strongest on paper IMO. I actually had you down to win it on my predictor before I changed it to myself, stupidly.

Not so happy with mine.  I have some decent riders but misjudged some auctions/work getting in the way so I missed out on few riders i'd have liked  and have the money left over to have got a couple of them.

You can have Rojas if you want to spend some of it.

Mollema isn't such a bad buy; gotta spend $ somehow.

Looking again at my team, I'm happy with a few bargains (including Uran at 550) but there are definitely a few duds in there as well.

Coquard is a big question mark now Europcar are out of WT. 360 p.a. is a lot for him, but having him for two seasons might pay off.

I was happy to secure Gougeard, but 100 may be a little over the odds. I have a tendency to sign riders I like rather than those who will score me a lot of points... I'll enjoy following oddball picks like Goss at MTN and Cunego at Nippo though.

Well, what I need is Purito to find his 2013 -form and Barguil to take a next step, if possible. Also I'm lacking of real sprinters. Nizzolo can win some for sure, but the 2nd best sprinter I've got is Pellucchi  :doh:

...just too much weight on grandpa Rebellin's aged shoulders  :P
