I'm in.  I'm wondering if we could work something out so that I could get the "Garmin-Sharp" team for this year, and give up "Sky" jersey. 

I'll keep all my current contracts.

Maybe BaggieBoy32 is okay with "Sky" or maybe he would rather be another team as well.

Thoughts?

Is it possible to update the rules page. It's still talking about keepers p.e.

What about the max riders per team, will it be 30 like in last year or will it be 25 which is in the current rules topic. Or maybe 35 or 40 because more riders are interesting with the .HC races included now

Good call, cleaned up a bit.

Good question. But regular real-life teams are also 30-deep, so I'd leave it. If anybody else also feels 30 is too few, let's continue brainstorming in the appropriate thread.

I think 30 is a good number, even with the HC races included.
Last year, the teams with a full roster (such as myself) still had a couple of riders who were basically filling up the squad, not contributing many points - if any at all.
Now, I suspect that more teams will try to get 30 riders or thereabouts, with the extra races. But with 40 riders, we'd be back at having 5 guys just sitting around.

This should be not only about spotting the best riders, but also limiting yourself in which riders you want.

I think bigger teams will give more action during season. Last season I almost selected the same riders every race because I only had more than 8 riders in some of the spring races. If we have more than 8 riders per race we have to make choices about who will be good in that race and who won't. Last year SKY would have won the game with only selecting the best 8 rides for all the races. Nobody could have beat that with making the right choices for selecting.
