I suspect there will be further twists still, but I was certain both Nibali and Majka was turning up here in order to perform. However, given Majka talked himself down before the race I went heavy on Nibali - miserable choice in hindsight.
Nice to see Ganna performing well two days in a row, I'm hoping to see more good performances this year from what looks like a very promising rouleur with cobble potential.

If someone would like to take the time to re-write the manager rules for manager competitions, feel free update the text found on pages like this:
Help would be very much appreciated.

First I want to say thank you for your answers. I understood that there is nothing to do by myserlf, because the change to my reserve drivers will be happen by the system. I'm not sure because there are still 16 teams without any changes. (me too).

You can nominate 2 reserve riders. They function as a security against last-minute startlist changes for people that are in different time-zones or can't always check the latest updates to the startlist.
If a rider in your 9-man team does not start the race, then all the riders behind him move up one position and the first reserve rider (R1) will move into the last slot (#9)

Ralf, the reserve riders are supposed to fill in gaps in your team, when riders are removed from the start list or DNS the race/first stage. Every rider under removed rider is put a position higher in your team.

Is there someone who can explain how to use the reserve drivers? I 'm new here and couldn'f find anything in the rules. Good luck and a lot of fun to all of you.

The Shark DNS, Mark Padan DNF, and Ivan Garcia plum last. Would appear Bahrain-Merida camp have picked up something nasty. Lets hope Bonifazio escapes it.

I'm going for the Darwin-award earlier than usual this year, didn't put in reserves - not yet back in rhtyhm.
Bad race to lose out in too due to many stages as potentially big points-swing in the overall competition by going a rider down.
The above was also why I tried to play it safe and avoid the Bora-trio of sprinters for McCabe. Also a big question mark on teams with both Argentine and Colombian riders on whether they sort it out so the Colombians domestique for the Argentines here and vice versa in two weeks time.
That Lotto-Soudal team though, strange combination of riders to send here. Granted Benoot can climb a bit, but this is really high altitude and against regional mountain goats and none of their fastest finishers either.

San Juan - the race where legends are born in contrast to Down Under. I am of course talking about Francesco Lamon! Disappointing to not see him return to a secure 150% position on my team.
