    Pretty much all the sprinters have pulled out of Paris-Nice at this point.

    But that's bad when you might have one team left between two races.

    I'm going to take my Paris-Nice win (with the help specifically of LL Shanchez, I Izagirre, and Soler) and be happy for the entire season. My T-A is back near or at the bottom where I expect it to be.

    Haha! Congratulations!! Neolithic and Scorcho as well! You put the hammer down and just stayed full out on the gas to 8 stages! Fabulous team you put together! Thanks again to the organizers, great race and good group of people to take it all in with!

    Congrats to the victor and the podium. It was fun to have everyone back playing and talking trash (even if it was mostly about ourselves and our sorry teams). Letís keep it going!

    I have often said that second place is the first loser. Well, today I am the Bridesmaid and it still feels better than being last.

    Couldn't catch Koronin, a well picked team.

    I really enjoy the little bit of extra I get from the league. Thanks to everyone for playing.

    Congrats to Koronin and the other podium spots. I started off strong and then faded away quietly. My T-A team just decided to stink from the beginning.

    I was sunk from day 1 in Paris-Nice with TJ abandoning... I'm doing better in Tirreno-Adriatico.

    Just lost another one smh.... This whole UCI suggestion that smaller teams will result in less crashes isn't really working out, at least not for me.

    I feel like I stole that podium spot. Way too many points showed up on those last two stages between Yates, De La Cruz, and Fraile. I was bouncing around the bottom 5 when I was checking through the work week.

    What a crazy week.

    Congratulations all!

    Fractured hand for Gaviria in Tirreno-Adriatico crash | Cyclingnews.com
    Yea... sucks to see him go out, but he's got no one to blame but himself. He hit his team mates wheel, right in front of him. I don't know how Sagan avoided going down. He did another bunny hop over a falling rider, similar to the one he did in Paris Roubaix (can't remember if that was last year or two years ago).

    That gust of wind you felt was me falling like a rock off the podium as you ascended.

    Hey!! That T-A stage 6 was really exciting! Sprint stages arenít usually... But Sagan getting back on, weaving through the entire remaining peloton, jumping a curb while continuing to accelerate, not losing one place, making it back up to the front and losing by a wheel to a guy whose team plan went perfectly and had a lead out train that could have pulled coal!

    Thanks guys. I got really lucky with picking Soler. I was hoping he would finish top 10, truthfully I didn't expect him to win, but when he put in that really good ITT I started hoping for a podium. I did get a nice team.

    My T-A team on the other hand is a total disaster.

    Rashadabd, I didn't like the reduced team sizes before and I still don't like them now.

    Next up is my favorite game and races every year, the Classics. If anyone sees the sign up window before I do, please go ahead and set us up and I am all the way in on that one. Hoping to do a lot better than PN and TA though....

    I believe Milan San Remo is open. When I get home from work in a bit I can crank up a league.

    Thanks. Ah yes, the put together a team and make sure you keep a few transfers open for the Ardennes, hope you have enough guys racing the majority of the cobbled races before the Ardennes.

    This one is, IMO, the hardest to pick for those reasons. However, it's the classics and I love the classics.

    Trying to put together a team right now. The big question is who do you trust more, Sagan or GVA?

    Thanks for putting together the group. I'm in, but my team is going to be not very good.

    This was another difficult team draft. Does not bode well for me...again.

    Another second place for the Cat 6 Allstar squad. I will absolutely take it without complaint.

    He definitely makes it tougher here by requiring us to pick twelve riders instead of nine.
