Was hoping that the Aussies would be a bit higher in the WiC sprint train, particularly as points opportunities are running out, but anyway.

Race 6

Selections
Name   Team   Age
Richard King   JaviTeamCCF   22
Leroy Davidson   EskorbutoTeam   22
David Edgar   Drollevangers   22
Christian Madsen   BetisCFF   22
Angus Mikkelson   WinterIsComing   22
Markus Warrenburg   BetisCFF   22
Nick Owens   Sacido   21
Martin Warrenburg   Monster   20
Ben Duncan   Shiro_Lions   19

Prospects
Not sure, but the season starts getting harder after this race, so we could hope for a win (pretty please).
Sigh, I'm thinking 3rd or 4th.

Results
Position   Name   Age   Time behind   Points   Team
1st   David Edgar      22   0: 00"   300      Drollevangers

Well, as Dirk said, we have got what we've badly needed.
Not expecting much next race, so no preview, Keith Owens is leader with a couple of domestiques, remaining cyclists are on sight touring runs.

Last race
Position   Name   Age   Time behind   Points   Team
5th   Keith Owens      22   0: 08"   180      WYGRAM_to
A great surprise, but hey, we'll take it.

Race 8


Selections
Name   Team   Age
Leroy Davidson   EskorbutoTeam   22
Keith Owens   WYGRAM_to   22
Gerard Ford   WinterIsComing   22
Angus Mikkelson   WinterIsComing   22
Markus Warrenburg   BetisCFF   22

Prospects
Yet to decide whether the sprint-hiller (Mikkelson) or the hiller-with sprint (Warrenberg) should be team leader.  It's the best final chance for a podium, so we'll see.

Results
Position   Name   Age   Time behind   Points   Team
2nd   Angus Mikkelson      22   0: 00"   250      WinterIsComing
19th   Gerard Ford      22   0: 34"   20      WinterIsComing

Well it's good to have 2nd.  Maybe I expect perfection, but I wonder whether a win was possible?

Race 9 

Selections
Name   Team   Age
Donovan Ryan   Toblerone   21
Duke Madsen   HtcItalia   21
Clive Butcher   CobbleCrushers   21
Vince Acree   CobbleCrushers   21
Bob Aldrin   Euskadi2017   21
Brad Mount   Toblerone   20
Will Fagan   Losbicikoalas   19
Vince Alpin   FranšaiseDesJeux   19
Ashley Jones   Losbicikoalas   19

Prospects
21 year olds are never looking to win.  But maybe a top 20 if there's not too many quality 22 year olds, or even a top 15.  It could be our final points for the season.

Results
Position   Name   Age   Time behind   Points   Team
31st   Donovan Ryan      21   0: 48"   0      Toblerone
37st   Bob Aldrin      21   0: 51"   0      Euskadi2017

I think 2nd was maximum result. In fact, I think there were a few cyclists who were better than Mikkelson, but you outclassed some other countries. Good job!  :)

Just to let everybody know, I'm not intending to seek an NT position next season.
Race 10

Points would be nice, but all cyclists are either climbers with a little hill, or hillers with a little climb, so we'll see if we get lucky.
