Wrong leader WiC, really dissapointed  :'( :'( :'(

Guess a winning manager is always right. Like I said in the short preview, Friess and Omole are a good team.  :)

Your cyclist Benjamin Omole did a great job. As a helper, he even finished a spot in front of the first Dutchman, Luuk Kemna. In most countries, Omole would be the race leader in a sprintrace like this. Australia has got Angel Friess however.
We were agressive this race, and it paid of. Only the Belgians did even better, gaining 510 points. Australia got the win with Friess and 480 points. We take the lead in the overall standings.  :)

1    Angel Friess      31   0: 00"   300      Biciclistas
2    Gerard Willems      34   0: 00"   250      Tourmalet
3    Norvald Akselsen      30   0: 00"   225      Ciripolen
4    Ali VanDerHeyden      31   0: 00"   200      TeamTimidus
5    David Rapo      30   0: 00"   180      Leones_Del_Sur
6    Ollie Middleton      32   0: 14"   160      CC_MANICOMICOS
7    Benjamin Omole      32   0: 14"   150      AJFactoryCycling
8    Luuk Kemna      32   0: 14"   140      Cachuflines
9    Zintis Kozlovskis      33   0: 14"   130      JHONJHONFRITZGERALD
10    Janno Všli      29   0: 14"   120      TeamTimidus

18    Noel Thomas      29   0: 14"   30      JoebaCycling

Goal: Top 5    Achieved

@Joep (Check the team of the nr 7 and you know what I mean  ;D)

But indeed, great race Wic! Congrats. Why was Friess leader? For the individual classification?

Because Friess has the ability to win a race like this :D

They were quite similar in GV but Friess has a higher sprint stat and he is a bit more experienced. Plus, he can be the race leader in another race indeed.

PS> Thanks JoepJJ and AJ!  :)

Ah I understand. Didn't expet that the best flatsprinter of the game would be helper :P But if you also have Friess... Pff too strong this sprintgeneration of the Aussies

Yeah, John Hunter will be dedicated to improve his rather disappointing result (14th) in the TT last season. Maybe the 2 weather icons will be of decisive influence (Clavijo and Dubois have warm weather icon for instance), both are not in John's benefit. And of course random luck is a major favtoctor in TT's. Still, he aims for a podium spot. I think he will be the only Australian guy in points tonight.

Goal: Top 3.

I was afraid there would be many more Aussies in the top  :)

I'm sure you're noticed that Australia is currently sitting 1st in the NT table.
To celebrate, I've found an image of what Winter is like in Queensland.

It s very easy to see when WinterIsComing visited the beach, he still has some adjustment problems, lol :


I have adapted well, I think^^ :


And because of the very good results of the Australian elite NT manager, WiC, I ordered Santa to give him these 12 presents, enjoy WiC ! :)) :
