U23 Australia S38
« on: June 03, 2018, 01:49:20 pm »
Welcome to season 38.  Below you can click on the image to see the current u23 rankings for Australia as calculated by me.  You'll notice I've experimented with creating a Grand Tour ranking, no guarantees to its accuracy (take it with a few grains of salt).
Not the best calendar for us, only one flat TT, and one climb stage.  But worst of all is 3 stages with cobbles (one year out on that), so that's three stages we will lucky to get points for.  But it is what it is, so we'll see how we go, and we can always surprise.

Not expecting any surprises for the race tonight, so I'm not writing up a preview.

He is.  Pity that with only one climb race, this season isn't more favourable for him and the fellow climbers.   Still, maybe we can get a good result in race 4.

Cool, Telamon gets to do my job for one race.
But I've got to prewarn you, if the ABS team gets a result, I'm taking the credit; and if the u23 team gets a result, I'm taking the credit as well.

Anyway.

Well done with a 6th place, seems like the tactics worked out well, there was always a teammate around the leader.
