Lisa's Team

As in the last two years, 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 McGee enforces one change and Samuel Sanchez has been brought into the team this season.


Steve's Team

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.


Introduction to the 2010 Season

This year we've skipped the Tour Down Under in Australia and the Fantasy calendar will just comprise the major European races starting at the end of February.

The basis of the Fantasy competition remains as described before and the next two posts will outline our team members for the coming season.
