The latest start list for the Amstel Gold race on Sunday has been uploaded to the game site. Here's what the current leader of the game had to say about his team selection in the Gent-Wevelgem: "The key to success in this race was to shy away from the favourites. It seems all the big guns had Roubaix on their minds so you knew it was a day for the opportunists. In Flanders the top three favourites took 1-2-3. That is why over 100 teams finished within sight of the top Fantasy team. In this race [Gent-Wevelgem] however, Mattan and Flecha were 25-1 mid-range longshots, having both of them was the key along with Hushovd, Cooke and De Jongh."
