message from Oska :

Due U23 NT manager is inactive I put you as new manager. I hope you enjoy with it.
Good luck !!


So I m since a few minutes the new Australian u23 NT manager. Thanks to WinterIsComing and Oska.   8)
(and of course also thanks to the in-active manager)

Easy start for me ; stage 6 is a very long time trial. Hopefully my tactics will be good.  ;)

Will look at it tomorrow, or very late this evening, no time now.

It's an honor to welcome you to our coaching staff, Mr. Vos, and good luck. :)

Glad for all the Australian recruits that we have a new and active manager to give our talents the nice and much needed experience. Would be nice if the U23 can get some results as well, but that's not the priority.

Thanks to Osca for taking care of business this quickly, just before X-mas. Good job :)

Thanks, and it s an honor to be the u23 NT manager of Australia.

Indeed, Australia u23 needed a NT manager, so now there will be a selection every week.

Indeed also, very swift and good job of Osca.  8)

STAGE 6  AUSTRALIA u23 :  FOX TAKES OVER

Since yesterday I m the new u23 NT manager of Australia because of inactivity of the former u23 NT manager.
Currently Australia u23 is 17th in the ranking by countries.
No points are expected in the upcoming NT race. In the u21 NT time trial (flat and 67,5km) of 2 seasons ago there was no Australian cyclist who scored points.
And there are just 2 Australian time trial cyclists who are good enough to be selected, including a 21 year old who was 3rd in the u21 NT time trial of one season ago. They both are by far better then the rest (many GV points difference ).
The other 7 places are for cyclists who just ride for the experience and they can eat and drink all they want during Christmas  :)



Australia u23 NT selection =

Walter Hoffman (21) Team_Boogie_Woogie
Ben Adams (22) FacHaBortoLo
-------------------------------------------------------
Henry Beckham (22) Absyntt
Paul Garza (22) Noldor
Herbie Springsteen (22) DD17EliteCT
Bruce Hooper (21) Rekutxu
Charlie Mitchell (21) Agolpede
Hank Thomas (20) FranšaiseDesJeux
Eric Lungby (19) Kilometervreters

As expected, no points in the time trial of last week.

STAGE 7 : BEST WISHES AND A HAPPY NEWYEAR EVERYONE !

This week no time to make a good study of the race below, even no time to ask help from others.
For example, the ratings of this race are unknown to me.
But the most important thing is that Australia u23 has a selection.
The expectations are again low, maybe only the leader can score points and get into the top 20. He needs very good help from his teammates to achieve that.
Also some cyclists are selected because of the experience.


I guess the weather icons are correct for the 1st of january  :) :

Australia u23 NT selection =

Earl Woods (22) Drollevangers
Herbie Springsteen (22) DD17EliteCT
Duke Pinkney (22) RackhamTeam
Oscar Cahill (22) LaFieraChurretes
Fraser Coburn (22) Patataman
Edward Jameson (22) WardCyclingTeam
Bruce Hooper (21) Rekutxu
Karl Janson (21) Matterhorn
Ken Emerton (20) Bolaverde

Hmmmm, my expertise on cobblehills races is very low, lol. Earl Woods (Drollevangers) finishes as 2nd !!
Tactics were good because I knew his teammates weren t good enough to help the leader in S4 ; so especially Cahill did a good job as helper and launched his leader a little bit into S4 because there Woods was ordered to attack a little bit and there he was leading together with just 1 other cyclist, a teammate from Estonia. In S5 there was a leading group of just 5 cyclists, so very happy with this second place.
This means also that Australia u23 is not longer on the 17th place, but moved up to the 14th place and more then doubled the total points-score this season with this great (and for me very unexpected) result.  8)

STAGE 8 : HILLS/SPRINT BATTLE



After the good result of last week, the Australian sponsor decided the cyclists could fly by helicopters to the next race like real VIPs.
I assume they are ready to battle and get a good result again.

Herbie Springsteen (22) DD17EliteCT
Henry Beckham (22) Absyntt
Duke Pinkney (22) RackhamTeam
Oscar Cahill (22) LaFieraChurretes

Rick Thompson (21) VOXIV
Karl Janson (21) Matterhorn
Mike Foster (21) LuzGP

Good race, I think, teamcaptain Springsteen finishes in the leading group and becomes 6th.
Perhaps one more energypoint less would have given even a better result, but probably that would v been too risky because his helpers weren t great (they couldnt ride faster, no energy left) and Springsteen was already isolated in S4.
Only the 21yo Janson was riding as a experiment in a free role, and he had a very strong finish and became 18th on 0:27"
