Transfer Period #3

The third and final transfer period will open on Monday the 18th at 8 am.  This transfer period will close at midnight on Friday the 22nd just in time for the start of the final grand tour of the season, the Vuelta a Espana.  This transfer period takes place during the Tour of Colorado (USA Pro Cycling Challenge), your current rosters will count for this race and transfers will not start to count until the Vuelta.
  
We've got a close competition this year with a heated battle for first as well as the rest of the podium spots. So, make some moves and enjoy the last part of the season.  Look for a few more Team Wiskota events including a Vuelta viewing party before the end of season team banquet.

Wiskota!

Broom Wagon: Giro Recap

Nitro!
Nairo-Quintana-y-Rigoberto-Urán.jpg (410×301)
Viva Colombia!!!
Nairo Quintana secured his first (of many?) grand tour wins last Sunday.   With the Giro wrapped up the WFL leader board saw its first big reshuffling of the season.  Gregario Forza comes away the big winner scoring a massive (epic) 395 points.  The Tours of Belgium and Bavaria were in there too but for the most part Greg scored his points in the Pink.  Two Giro wins in a row for Gregario Forza, was made even sweeter with Forza beating the Commish in Velogames for the first time ever.  Is this the beginning of a new era?  The Nairo Forza era?  Can Gregario keep it rolling through the summer?  Will the Wiskota Fantasy League crown a new champion this season?
Stay tuned for more details and a previews of the weeks to come.
