3 of the 6 stages will probably end in a sprint (1, 4 & 6). The other stages are indeed for punchers/GC guys

Tour de San Luis : I have picked 8 cyclists from South America, they are hopefully more motivated. Not much happened so far because stage 1 was a team time trial. 4th in ranking, and....olé, Vos has the white jersey (for now)  :)

Tour Down Under : I have picked 8 Australian cyclists, so more then half of my team. They should be in better shape because of the Australian Championship last week. And they can stand the heat of the Australian summer better.
So far, a bad start, 8th  :-[

sjiz, true.

Only one thing to remember every time. a race given as a flat stage gives more points compared to a hill stage so do not underestimated the amount of points sprinters can score.

About myself.

Tour de san luis.
I picked 3 riders no one else has, the other riders are more common for the most of us. These riders are Gonzales, Jaramillo anf vuillermoz. All of them in my opinion top 5 possible so I hope they can do it. I also hope contreras can prove himself better compared to Miguel angel lopez.

Tour down under
The pickes are so different for everyone so hard to say. Marnixstar made a perfect start with a team with mostly sprinters, he is first in the whole competion, I hope he can hold it but I doubt it because of the two hilly stages and one sprint uphill.

I just made one mistake, I kicked Porte out of my team who I thought would win but doubted it so I siwtched porte for rohan dennis. I forgot to switch the winner of the GC. stupid me because i don't think porte can win it.

Vuillermoz is one of the most commone riders who rides San Luis? :P Jaramillo and Gonzales are indeed not really common and indeed good dark horses for the GC. But you didn't pick the future winner Lopez!

I didn't pick Nibali btw, i think he is gonna help Lopez instead of going for the win. My dark horse is Acevedo, but i see i'm not the only one who picked him.

yeah 30% of the game picked him but somehow in our competition I'm the only one. I was doubting about Lopez but I don't think Nibali will help Lopez that hard so I think Diaz will win.

I didn't choose him because his form is probably not so good. For Majka counts the same but i prefered Majka. Diaz has a bloodpassport now so i don't think he will win hehe  ;D Lopez doesn't need Nibali to win btw.

I'm happy Grosu ended 4th. He was my dark horse on a other poule. Too bad i didn't choose him instead of Chicci like i did in an other poule.
