Tough probably not the right word to use, different suits it a little more closely. You have 4 selections to make for each stage, but you must select your riders from a pool of rider that the developers think are closely matched. Then depending on the stage you pick 1 team leader, 1/2 or a combination of sprinter/climber or both and a wildcard. So your team leader is your top GC riders, second pool are your better sprinters/climbers then there is a lower pool for your 3rd pick then your 4th pool is the wildcards selected riders with a chance to finish well. Unlike previous formats where you look ahead and plan for stages, trades and salary cap, this dictates who to choose from a selected pool so you cant grab the best riders in one team only the ones that you have been given to you to choose from.
