The problem I'd have with nicknames is I'd never remember who they really were.

FAQ, might be in your best interests to put Gossy into your TDU team. I don't think there's going to be much of a Cav/Griepel showdown, Gossy is stomping at the moment and I expect Cav and Renshaw to be leading him out.

@stumpy here you loud and clear he won one of the Jayco Bay crits as well didn't he? What I would really want to see is Cav leading Goss out on one of the sprints that would be so cool and should catch alot of people of guard but egos are more important I guess.

@Thomskie really loving your avatar, well you can't have it all at once but a good consideration for next year's FCL upgrade list.

He won one or two of them and the overall, plus the Launceston international. It's some of the best form I've seen him in at this time of year and he's normally going pretty well due to track nationals always being February ish. Good to see the Goose get the win, I was really expecting one of the Uni-SA boys to win it out of a break.

I noticed from the TDU beta that if we make up our nicknames for the riders in place of real ones, it is hard for others to view your totals and see where one team is doing better than others. I often look at other teams pool of riders when setting active riders. For this reason, if I give a nickname, I will also leave their last name in as well.
I buy everything that JMT lists on this site.

I thought it was a bit more fun that way. I might change my mind though and if you have any suggestions I'm all ears.

Just watched stage 6 of TDU man that was an exciting ending, a bit boring in the middle but a lot of action overall.

And finally Sky made a lead out train work for them took'em long enough! :)

if anyone can download/watch even the highlights it's worth it!

@Slisk well you could do a lot of things the possibilities are endless ;)
