Quite happy with mine, being a bit late into the game. 3 preety strong riders, Tony Martin, Rui Costa and Tejay. Two of them overpaid though. No problem with Costa, fanboy stuff. Tejay can be the rider to dump next year but I can see him hitting 1500~1600p what would make him a good pick. For the rest, big question marks on Phinney and Ulissi but, as Ulissi's expected suspension shall not be more that 1 yr lenght, both of them could be great assets for the 2016's season. Very happy with Juanjo Lobato and Jesus Herrada on board too. Fuglsang can do a bit better this year and next one go for another team leadership, something like IAM. The lot of Pro Conti guys I have are quite unpredictable. All in all, not a team to go ftw this year but I think a good bulding block for 2016.

I'm in the same boat as you I think. Great building block for 2016 and possibly a decent outcome this year as well. Don't really feel I've overpaid for anyone if you allow for 2016 too. Overall pretty pleased, just hope my youngsters can perform as well or better than last year.

Mind you next year I'm going to be bidding in the bargain bucket having spent 2/3 of my money already.

Just looked at your squad and I think you've got a few bargains in there - Herrada, Zakarin, Bole, Prades, Simon, Pellizotti and Gatto are good buys. Not sure about Ulissi and Cuddles tho!

Strong team but small as you say. You could do with getting 2 in for your remaining money surely??

Or, dare I say it, sacrificing someone and buying 7 or 8 with the proceeds!

I dunno, there are definitely some $30k riders who are capable of getting 200+ points. Most have gone but there are some good young uns around still. I have 4 or 5 on my list should people keep outbidding me.

Would 7 or 8 small purchases outscore Trentin? Difficult to say for sure.

Too early for me (or other 2014 top scorers) to post here or in the predictions thread. Still a lot of riders out there...

The only conclusion thus far: I shouldn't have touched Kwiato. I got too excited and ignored by golden fantasy/betting rule: always going against personal favourites. This way either they win and you're happy, or they don't but you score points/cash. So then I went and got the stupid dopehead Ponzi to bring back some balance :P

Also interesting to see that there are only 4 or 5 teams with decent budgets for 2016. Everyone else has gone large for 2 years, with most of the big boys taken for 2 or 3 years.

Are you serious? Kwia is a great buy, the boy has a huge future and could become one of the best Classics and week stage racers around. He is Sagan's equal in talent I reckon. I'd have him at that price in an instant! He can sprint, he can TT, he can climb...

Or he could be a one-shot wonder.

Cycling is littered with stories about riders who went large for one season and then disappeared into the peloton for the rest of their careers.

Nah, I can't see it. Love watching him but he needs to forget GC on GTs and concentrate on early season.
