I have EIGHT points! I did not understand the rules of the game. I thought you could trade riders on a team each week, like one can do in a fantasy hockey/baseball/basketball team. So I picked a ton of sprinters and no one who has a chance at winning the race thinking I could trade the sprinters for climbers etc. I guess I'm not gonna win the TCR Team bike from Giant...oh well.

I'm currently 23rd! !Team Yahoo Internet! is the name. I wish I could say that this is due to my great knowledge of the sport. It is not. I read the blurbs that Yahoo puts on my home page. I used that scouting report to help make my picks.

I sure could use that new bike they are giving away for 1st Place. My 1994 Trek 1200 is getting a little long in the tooth...

I'm right there with you. I took more climbers than sprinters though so I'm looking forward to week 2. I'm pissed at Millar and what the hell happened to O'Grady today? 3 CA guys in the break and he only gets 5th, he could have been in yellow. BTW my team is Pack Meat Sportivo.

Give Millar a breakPaulCL

Because he almost broke a leg in the prologue. Did you see that bandage on his leg??? He'll be back. Tomorrow. I hope, since he is on my fantasy team too.

By the way, I'm in about 1000th place out of 2500 with about 45 points. yippee.

38 pts. I'm currently something like 992nd out of more than 2000. I'm waiting for the mountains. Team: e=mc2 I was counting on Millar to get some points early. I had Zabel and then changed it right before the start of the Tour. Aaaaaaaaaarrrrrrrrrrrggggggghhhhhhh! Never, ever, change your 1st choice. (I used this rule to good advantage in school many moons ago. Why did I forget that?!)
