Rise and shine, fellow pro cycling dorks: it's classics season. This year of course we bid farewell to the iconic spring rider of our time and also Tom Boonen I guess, so you obviously don't want to miss out.

The Velogames format is a little different from the grand tours. So make like Sean Kelly, study all potential bonifications, make the calkewlaytions, and choose your roiders (ok easy there) carefully.

I've created a TCC league with code 15145934. You have until the start of Milan-Sanremo on Saturday to select your team.

Yeah, 10 races left, which means an average of 2-3 changes per race...!

This is more a stage race than the stage races.

I thought I'd picked Gilbert for the Ronde but totally missed the boat. Still tight up at the top.

I'm running a bunch of scrubs for the Shoulder Prize though so we'll see what happens.

Lost both Sagan and Naeson in the Ronde. That was annoying.

Looks like almost none of the riders in Paris-Roubaix will be doing the Ardenne classics. Next round of transfers is going to hurt.

Fancy Bears doing better than expected.
Will David Failshard not fail so hard?
Or will he be running back to Aruba with a jiffy bag of undocumented TUEs between his legs?
