    Make the top 20 people from the previous year captains, and let them choose their teams.

    Thanks for all of the assorted comments and the great (and some stupid) ideas!

    I'm still sort of new at all this, and was stupid enough to volunteer to be a team captain in my 2nd year, so I had only started this discussion after team mates had brought it too my attention. I most likely would never even had noticed, as I'm sure that most people wouldn't have, either.

    I'm ok with leaving everything as is, since as someone pointed out "stuff happens" and that this is not that unusual. I certainly don't want to stir up any trouble or have anyone tossed from a team. I just want to go for a ride (in hopefully some warmer and less windy weather).

    However, since I will be presenting a prize to Rod for creating his dumb "circle" ride, if they happen to end up ahead of our team, his six pack may be Natty Boh instead of a fine premium craft beer. (And in case you can't tell, that is some of my strange humor)

    No fisticuffs at the awards ceremony, if you please. This will not be that kind of biker bar.

    Cheating is an integral part of every cycling competition.
