Brian Clickett had a good race, being in a breakaway of 3 riders since S2. Unfortunately no extra points from free roles.

Pos   Name   Team Points
3   Brian Clickett   OffTheFront    225

Columbia had a good day in the field with a 1st, 10th and 18th position and making me feel a little less comfortable in the general rankings. But Australia is still 555 points ahead and the next two races should be good ones for us.
Results updated.

Race 8 - Slagelse
I have good hopes for this race. Will Fagan has a high GV but his main skill is a little low so it might cost him a little bit in the last section. Ashley Jones is also looking good and hopefully he can get decent points in a free role. Chapeau to Losbicikoalas for training these pavé riders.



Pos   Name      Age    Rating   Team         Role      
1   Will Fagan      20      68.3      Losbicikoalas      Leader   
2   Ashley Jones      20      66.8      Losbicikoalas      Free   
3   Adrian Clinton      20      62.7      Losbicikoalas      Dom   
4   Kenny Williams      20      61.7      Wolfsraider      Dom   
5   Steve Johnston      20      61.8      Losbicikoalas      Dom   
6   Neville Paxton      20      60.7      Losbicikoalas      Dom

There was a unfortunate split in the first section and winner came from this group.
At least Will Fagan had a helper in S4.
Decent points scored with a 9th, 11th and 19th position.

Pos   Name   Team Points
9   Will Fagan   Losbicikoalas    150
11   Ashley Jones   Losbicikoalas    130

Well done Dirk, enough points (7th, 9th and 19th)  to stay ahead with a big gap towards the other countries.
Hopefully next week also enough points because I suspect in race 10 there will be not many points.
So far it is looking very promising that Australia u21 will be world champion for the first time ever.
But still too soon to predict that. Well, whatever happens, an amazing season of you, Dirk !  8)

Race 9 - Ruta por Avila
One of those interesting races where riders aren't trained to excel at but rather born to win.
Hopefully I have one of those riders, namely Ike Johnston.

Great to see that your tactics turned out to be perfect, Dirk ! 
Well done and congratulations with the victory of your own Ike Johnston8)

Your rival and number 2 in the ranking by countries, Estonia, scored more points in this race.
But the gap is still very big with 745 points, probably and hopefully enough to be the u21 world champion.
As you know, I think Australia u21 will not score points in the last race ( if I m wrong, not many points will be scored), so you did everything you could in this race 9, and now waiting and hoping that Estonia will not score an extreme amount of points in race 10.
It would be amazing if Australia u21 will be the world champion for the first time ever ! Good luck !

Thanks Guys,
The last race went well and Ike Johnston performed as well as I hoped.

If think Columbia was in 2nd place before race 9 and now moved to 4th place because no points gained but Estonia must have only been 30 points behind Columbia given the current standings.

At this moment I do not see how we can not win 8) except if Estonia have some weird generation of hill time trialists.
Although, they did score the most points in the flat time trial  :o which was 640 points and we scored 480 in stage 5.

Australia scored 480 points in race 5, and probably zero in race 10.
Hopefully the Estonian flat time trialists are also bad in the hills TT, of course a big chance one or a few of them score also (many) points in the hills TT.

Estonia has 3 or 4 TT specialists, in the flat time trial they were 1st, 4th, 8th and 32nd.
To reasure you a little bit, Dirk :
I think I have one of the best 20yo for this race 10 in my team, so that are points Estonia does not get.
He was 3rd in the flat time trial, but he is better in this hills TT, I assume. Top 3 again (almost) for sure.
Let's say my British TT specialist wins, and Estonia will be 2nd, 3rd and 4th.
That is still 70 points short for Estonia to be the u21 world champion.
If my cyclist is 2nd, than Estonia needs these results ; 1st, 3rd, 4th and 19th.
If my cyclist is 3rd, than these results ; 1st, 2nd and 4th.

So it is looking very good, what are the odds of such results by Estonia ? Fingers crossed of course.  :)

Race 8 - Chaville
I think we have 2-3 riders which can score points in this race. Below GV table is just one of the GV % which I used to select riders and used a couple of permutations to select the riders since I am not very confident on 1 single GV.

Yay.
Happy to have played my part and to think no-one wanted to manage the u21's.
