He lacks plain, that's why hes not on the u23 dream team. But hes high talent and the best Vuelta a España prospect of his generation i think  8) ;D  :P

Ah yeah, forgot he was more of GC guy than a climber. He won the U21 title because of his cobble. He will be a nice one yeah. Very curious to see how our generation will end up. Leones is also doing a wonderful job.


And good start kekipi. Kelly won with a very large margin.

I went into the stage thinking that Kelly was the hands-down favorite and the only way he wouldn't win is if I blew it tactically.  Glad I didn't.

Victory #2 of the season for climbing phenom Kelly.  And with another mountain stage forthcoming (race # 4), he appears to be the top candidate for the individual title this season.

I am too ;) I have 3 or 4 riders I deem equally good for a stage like this as Kelly. His flat is still not very good so figured that's were the others would get something back on him. Guess flat counted for less :P

I don't doubt you.  In fact, while looking over your roster, I saw that you have no lack of 22 year old mountain men which, happily for me, include three Americans, the best of whom is the precocious Kelly. 

Thanks for training and racing these guys. 

I anticipate lots of good results for you in the future, both on the road and in the bank.

Ha, thanks. Very happy with my riders. There are some excellent ones between them. Kelly is a bit of my favourite though. While i usually buy most of my top riders i scouted him myself. He had brilliant stats and an excellent talent. He will be trained as an awesome climber first and then made to suit the Tour de France.

Captain Kirk will head up the Starship USA.  The hope is for a top 5.   Dallas will ride free and the rest will be obedient Federation crew members.   We'll see if there will be harmony or a mutiny.

83   Fletcher   Tactic=33420      25/34/30/47/1:13     USA

Not a happy day on the Starship Enterprise as captain Kirk failed to deliver them from the Klingons aka the Netherlands.  Next week, we'll have a captain who has already delivered twice so far and attempt to boldly go where no rider has gone before, AFAIK, that is by winning three U23 NT stages in a season.

Stage 4, Season 34

ST19 CL47 FL4 TQ10 DH16  TW4

Selection
Bob Kelly   TeamRolf   22      Exp=38      GV=82.2
Craig Dallas   Cachuflines   21      Exp=10      GV=77.3
Leroy Duffy   TeamRolf   22      Exp=25   GV=76.6  (weather bonus)

Derek Arrington   GMV_Cycling   21      Exp=12   GV=73.0  (weather bonus)
Daniel Green   TeamEuroscalt   21      Exp=8      GV=72.5

We'll see if Kelly can win his third stage this season.  The windy, cold weather is a concern but we're hoping that the assembled helpers can form a Team Sky-like protective cocoon to deliver him to the final section ala Froome.

Using 2ep for the first two sections for Kelly was a certainly a gamble but I thought he'd have lots of help and was more than strong enough to propel himself to a powerful finish for the final two sections.  Well, he did rally and surge but he was too far back to challenge for the win.   I'm bummed about the stage but am still hopeful that his 780 pts will be enough to garner him the individual title.
