Did somebody say glutton? I'm in.

Just kicking myself for removing Alaphilippe from my Dauhpine team at the last minute. I need to get all this stupidity out of my system before le Tour.

So I just switched out van Garderen and put in Matthews in my roster.

Let's hope that plays out better than removing Ahlaphilippe in the Daupine.

Hey, figured I should post so I'm not just thatnother guy that joined your league. Looks like it's going to be an incredibly entertaining race already! What the heck happened to Gaviria at the end of today's stage?!

Bling? Where the heck are you? Well, at least I didn't go with Gaviria,

Richeze is sure looking like the value pick of the race. >100 pts / velobuck.
