    It is supposed to go live any day now. So, this is basically a placeholder. Anyone that comes across the live game should feel free to setír up and share the code here. Looking forward to it!

    You can count on me.

    I sure wish Froome was easier to like. I just can't put that guy on my team, I'll take a loss before I could stomach that.

    Really went in a weird direction with my team, so no big aspirations here.

    I'm in and really liking my chances, of course I say that every time I pick my riders.

    Including the rider categories definitely forces you to have to make some difficult decisions in this particular game. It will be interesting to see how it all plays out, but I am comfortable with the selections I made as well. There are certainly guys 'I like' that I passed on, but I had sound reasons why I passed on each one, at least that's what I am telling myself right now.

    Iím in. Struggling like heck to pick my team... The wildcard is the saving grace for the classifications... as for Froome, what I like about the game is rooting for my riders, I canít put a rider on my team that I wonít root for, thatís no fun... I have done it once. Iím continuing to work on ďplaying the game,Ē to understand strategy... I used some of the 1 week races to try different approaches. Of course, I learned that you have to pick riders that do well, haha!
    To date, philosophers have merely interpreted the world in various ways. The point however is to change it.

    Lanterne Rouge is in. As with the Giro, can't bring myself to put Fr**mey in the mix. Going with one top tier guy, spreading the rest over some second tier guys. Too many variables to have a strong conviction on my success

    Our league should have a no Froome rule. That way if you are a poser fanboi who can't help but root for some doped up cyborg, you would be forced to exercise imagination and pick someone else, anybody else.
    "That pretty much sums it up. I'm 43 and my max is ~178-180. If that HR chart was mine or Froome's, we'd be on the verge of death. But for you it probably looks like a normal workout." -TLG
