<> Fantasy Cycling Teams - 2012 <>

* 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 700 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.


* For this season's line-up, Steve makes three changes to his Nightowlers team from last year. He lost Mark Cavendish to Sky, Carlos Sastre retired and Stijn Devolder was not deemed worth keeping having failed to trouble the scorers. New to the team in their place are Philippo Pozzato, Andrew Fenn and Damiano Cunego.

* For her part, Lisa has only had to make one change to her Ready Steady Riders, brining in Daniel Martin in place of the retired Roger Hammond.

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