I'm not mad because somebody is bidding on my favorite rider or any rider at all. I know that's how it works. I've played this kind of games before.

But after 3 days and only 100 topics for riders opened when there are plenty of others to choose from, you have to admit that something is wrong. This way the riders will get way too overpriced while some aren't even auctioned for.

Well, there is another way to look at it. For somebody less familiar with fantasy games (and with the faces in the peloton), 100 threads can be an intimidating number. If you think riders are overpriced, simply pass and wait for those to be auctioned later. I'm sure your team will be ready for Paris-Nice.

Yeah, 100 riders isn't a tiny amount, considering there are "only" 18 teams, of which a few haven't bid at all yet, and a few are only involved in 2 or 3 auctions. That leaves like 90+ riders being bid on by 12ish teams. Seems about right to me, considering there's still more than a month before the next race.

There are a few different tactics/styles of bidding. Some seem to bid on everything with two legs, others are a bit more patient (a few even "hellooo, wake up!"-patient). I think it works, so far.

I'll just ask for people to bare with me on the transactions front. My internet connection has been dodgy today. Tomorrow and Tuesday will likely be a bit better. Sorry if people think I've forgotten about this but I'll likely do a lot of cross referencing, by that I mean check keepers, completed transactions, the transactions on hold etc to make sure I don't do any repeating etc.

No worries, tony, I wasn't referring to you. you're out of the starting gates. :)
I was talking about guys like pimmen and Jaroslav. Hellooo, cycling fans! Get out of the beer tent!
And Fus, of course, who's still a poopyhead for not cutting his vacation short.

Excuses, excuses!

(just kidding. :) yeah, it's pretty slow at the moment. Lot of sports events updating on a Sunday, I'm guessing.)

I do not understand the Kittel and Degenkolb bids. Is their team part of the World Tour?
I think not. Hence the question, are Degenkolb and Kittel part of this game?

Yes, but they will score only when invited, and maybe in their 2nd year after possibly joining WorldTour.

It's damn hard trying to keep a Basque identity in the team when people keep bidding "insane" amounts for my low life Basque riders with little chance of scoring any points at all. :soapbox:
