Looks good Garfield  :toast:

Thanks! Preparing the spreadsheets as we speak.

However, I'm asking myself whether it even makes sense to play as national teams. In the end the rules make it irrelevant, and it doesn't really feel natural to draft cyclists to join your nation. Maybe we stick to our trade teams after all?

I'm going 73%-offline for 3 weeks, but this is just to let you know I haven't surrendered entirely on the national teams league front.

One format I've been thinking about is something similar to RC, but you'd start with a team of 3-5 (fixed or your choice?) riders representing your country, and your budget gets limited accordingly.

Optionally, one of those riders could cost you 90% of the budget he should, another - only 80%.

What about we have mini competitions during the season, which work on the same basis as The Rainbow Cup i.e. quick-fire draft - each team has 6 picks for 3,000. So do you go for a biggie like Froome or Kristoff, or do you go for a few smaller riders.

1) Spring Classics
2) Giro
3) Tour
4) Vuelta

We'd have to start them a week or two before the race and do quick picks. But most of the big riders will have been confirmed way before anyway.

Not bad!
A. I could request a separate forum for "Mini Leagues".
B. I'd split 1) into cobbles and Ardennes.
C. I'm in Rio almost all August, so possibly would need help setting up la Vuelta.

Well it would add a bit of excitement with auctions during the season.
