<> Fantasy Cycling Teams - 2010 <>

* As has become our custom, Lisa & I will be adding to our interest in this year's professional cycling season by following the fortunes of our own fantasy cycling teams. We've been doing this since 1997. We select our teams on the basis of each rider "costing" his total UCI ranking points earned last season divided by ten and rounded to the nearest five, with a minimum cost of twenty points and a maximum of 200.  We allow each team 550 points on this basis, with nine riders to be selected. No more than two riders in each team can be selected from the same real life trade team.  Throughout the season we score our riders performances in all the major races according to the points system adapted from one used by Roger Hughes in his Fantasy Cycling League. The tables below summarise the fortunes of our teams throughout the season.


* With Dekker departing in disgrace during the season last year and the defection of Wiggins and Cummings to Sky, this season's line-up of Steve's Nightowlers features three new names: Stijn Devolder, Alessandro Ballan and Adam Blythe. The team's sprint duo: Thor Hushovd and Mark Cavendish returns alongside David Millar, Carlos Sastre, Philippe Gilbert and Andy Schleck.

As last year, Lisa has also held on to the bulk of her Ready Steady Riders in the shape of Alessandro Petacchi, Tom Boonen, Robbie McEwan, Alberto Contador, Thomas Voeckler, Roger Hammond, Michael Rogers and Fabian Cancellera. The retirement of Bradley McGeee enforces one change and Samuel Sanchez has been brought into the team this season.

For a blow-by-blow details of our riders' successes throughout the season, see the accompanying blog.
