New fantasy league factor

Ricco getting popped killed me. Went from 49 to 382 in the Performance Fantasy League.

Failed to handicap the likelyhood my draftees would test positive.

Think I can sue Ricco for the value of the bike?

Well I hoped you learned your lesson. You will be lucky if Performance invites you back to their Fantasy League next year, for having dopers on your team.

yeah i took the hit too. if only i had seen that article in cycling news saying that a bunch of the riders were known to be using Micera in the Giro but they couldn't test / throw any riders out for it yet. I would've picked up a different climber.

. . .thats why they call it gambling. Last year I picked up a bunch of places when Rasmussen left. I'm definitely toast after losing Ricco unless maybe Chavanel has a brilliant last week (which doesn't seem too likely).

I've lost two riders through crashes (Soler & Cooke), so no sympathy from me. I'm actually rooting for more doping DQs to shake things up a little bit. My team needs a miracle.
