    I don't want to poach anyone's strategy but is anyone else worried about the high price for Contador? I am sure he is worth it but paying 30vc for one rider seems crazy. It puts a real crimp in the rest of ones roster. That coupled with the disconcerting way he gave stages away in the Giro has got me on edge.

    Hard not to pick Contador. He's about as close to sure points as it gets. Even if he gifts a stage or two he'll still score big points.

    What's really tough is trying to fit Contador & Cav on the same team. I'm not crazy about the choices in the "All Rounder 2" slot and they force you to use 10 credits there.

    I'm excited to see everyone's teams. I have a feeling there will be a ton of very different teams, and a couple very similar teams. The smart people and then the front runners...

    Strong showing in the league so far. That should make the view from the podium all the more enjoyable. Same from the other end, too -- eddiepliers, are you going for a three-peat of the lantern rouge?

    Let the games commence!

    Yes, George has made the top tier folk pretty pricey, AC in particular. On top of sneaking some extra velobucks out of your pocket with GC #2 and climber #2, this one is a puzzler.

    The nrtoone site is ready now: http://www.nrtoone.com/fantasy/cycling/

    I found it much easier to field a strong team over there. I actually like all of my riders on that team.

    I enjoy the fact that the more likely winners are much more expensive. It makes for a much more difficult decision, and likely some gambling. I cant wait to see everyone's teams.

    Maybe a four-peat with the vuelta!!! It's really hard to build a team around Contador this time around due to his and everyone else's pricing..

    I think this is all part of the deception plan by some nefarious schemer to gain advantage in a cut throat competition. My top secret elixir of victors shall remain covert until George unveils it all on the morning of Le Grande Depart, and ye shall see your fate coming at you with great vengeance.

    My only hint is that my team will definitely have Contador. I made one lineup with Cav and one with a cheaper alternative. I keep going back and forth on Cav because I think he'll win ~3 stages, but how hard will he try for green? I feel like he's worth the 20 points if he goes for green, but if he's just going for stages I'd rather gamble on two lower-cost sprinters and hope one gets green.

    I'd feel much better about my non-Cav team if they'd put Gesink in that second "All Rounder" slot and I could build a team around him and Contador. I end up spending at least 10 points on a guy I'm not crazy about and then I can't afford him.

    Made a bunch of chances, disregard my previous line up.

    And I'm keeping this one secret.

    I watched the Kobyashi Moru episode of Star Trek 3 times before I finally broke the code. Now I've got Contador, Schleck, Cav, Tyler, Thor, Gilbert, Gesink, Wiggo, and even threw in whiny Cadel just for laughs.

    You guys watch out. I'm coming.
