STAGE 1 : LONG DISTANCE MOUNTAIN TT

 

Australia u23 has just one cyclist who is good enough to score points in stage 1, was my opinion before the race started.
And that is Callum Caan because he was 19th two seasons ago in a shorter mountain TT u21 NT race ( the same as TdF stage 8 ).

In this race his very good stamina (and possible very good training of his manager) was the cause for a way better result ; 11th  :)

Almost all other cyclists were selected for the experience. Next time I post the selection in time.

Caan nicely drove his way upfront, first points are on the board. But what is this about the Danish mountain-TT breeding program?  ;)

Yes, nobody really knows the secret Danish mountains, where we send our youth to reap, ride and rule 8)

147m That is with tower I think.

Himmelbjerget - Could be translated to: The mountain that touches the sky or directly Sky Moutain. But that sound more like a stripper name.

The sky mountain is part of the Middle-Jutlandia - Funen ridge.  Nobody can't say that Danes not are the most modest people  ;D

Everything is relative.  :)

As a dutchman, I totally understand the fact that 147m feels like a huge mountain.

STAGE 2 : HOME ADVANTAGE ?

 

Welcome to Melbourne8)
Very sunny and 36 degrees ; perfect for the Australian cyclists.
After the 11th place in the mountain TT of last week, now the season really starts.
Australia u23 is very motivated to score points in this race. Their manager expects a good result when the cyclists listen attentivly to his tactical instructions. And of course nothing is certain, there is wind and it is cycling.
But there are also thousends of Australian spectators, so no worries that they will perform.

The selection of Australia u23 :

Karl Janson (22) Matterhorn
Rick Thompson (22) VOXIV
Mike Foster (22) LuzGP
James Derby (22) Jimena_Cycling_Team
Lance Rooney (22) Puertollano
Hank Thomas (21) FranšaiseDesJeux
Stephen Jons (22) TeaMetal
Eric Lungby (20) Kilometervreters
David Montgomery (22) Absyntt

the selection is now complete, the last 2 cyclists are added :

# The 20yo Lungby is one of the greatest talents of Australia. Last week he was 2nd in the u21 NT race, and I m sure he will be the teamcaptain again in the u21 NT race of tomorrow. He rides the u23 NT race in Melbourne for the experience.
# The 22yo Montgomery rides for semi-experience. He is one of the best hills - and flathills-specialist of Australia u23, so maybe he can, besides gaining xp, be a good helper in the first 2 sections.
