    Obviously I suck at picking riders for the cobbled classics. LOL

    Hang in there. It typically takes playing a couple of times to find your mojo. I had to learn to hold my personal feelings about certain riders in check and learn to focus on who is riding well at the time and/or who rides the race at hand well consistently. Keep playing and you will eventually be a challenger.

    Good point on that. Although the points thing doesn't help either as I couldn't figure out how to get the points right for a rider I did want but wasn't completely confident in. I should have put in there somehow anyway. I'm going to have to work on that in the future.

    Thank you. Having put Colbrelli on my team FINALLY paid off. LOL I think I'm going to wait until Friday to make my transfers for the Ardennes. Although I am sure you can guess one rider who HAS to be on my team. LOL.

    Team for Amstel is ready. I am more confident in my picks for the Ardennes than I was for the cobbled classics.

    That would be nice. Amstel's course change makes it more interesting as to who the true contenders are, although I still expect the usual suspects to be in the mix maybe with a few others whom wouldn't have been there with the old course.

    Scores appear to be up. And I finally figured out how to get a jersey color for my team. LOL

    There's no turning back now, I think you are hooked, lol. A team jersey and a second straight podium, you are officially legit my friend.

    Yep, you got me hooked on it. Fun, but not easy. I have to make some changes for the last two Ardennes races, because Valverde was correct yesterday when he said this year's Amstel race is not for climbers. He thought the course was too easy for him to have any success with it.

    Thank you. Always good to have great friends.

    Missed a couple more - hopefully I choose a team for LBL and can claw my way out of the gutter.

    Valverde is a beast!

    Unfortunately due to work I never got to make changes for Fleche Wallonne. I really need to make a few changes before LBL.

    The Mur de Huy fits Valverde's abilities perfectly.

    Because they haven't finalized the start lists for LBL yet.... I don't know why you'd want to pick riders for the race if you don't know who'll be racing in it yet.

    That is a wrap on the Classics fantasy. Well at least did fairly well in several of the later races and had the top three finishers for LBL on my team. Plus one lesson to try something for next year.

    It definitely has been fun. Thank you for playing everyone. Congrats to the victor! You took control of that thing and never looked back after Roubaix. Nice comeback @ Koronink and you had a great first run @ Tricrossrich! To get a podium, win Liege, and almost overtake second overall shows you are a real threat for the future. I am definitely down to play more this season, but probably won't be excited enough about stage races to set it up, but count me in if someone else gets us going.

    Ugh, if I hadn't joined late - would have left the Old Man spinning in his rocker!

    Congrats to Koronink.
