Getting hammered in my division at present so may have to reinforce my ranks but I am not clear what sort of rider to buy? how much to pay? and what to search/look for?
Have up to now generally tried to develop my own cyclists but dont seem to compete this season.
If you want to win some races you should buy any rider who has Sprint and TT >= 5 and some good value in one of the other skills (at least 7+). To me it seems you just can buy some age 35+ cyclist. You shouldn't waste any training to him but he will be good enough to win any race that you choose for him.
