Australia u20 ( 58 cyclists )


To unexperienced managers ;
The season is halfway, and almost everyone stopped with recruiting and scouting by now.
Because 19yo's who enter the game so late in the season, have a very big training delay compared to other 19yo's.
It is still possible to recruit/scout a good 19yo the next few days, but this is exceptional and rare.
In my opinion ; after the Giro d'Italia it is a waste of money to continue with scouting/recruiting.

Yes, I had this impression also, looking at all 9 selected Australians.
Although I'm not sure about the experience, it just seems like it to me.
Much more obvious to me ; the active weather icons were of less influence as normally.
What sucks, Australia could have really profited of the weather in this NT race. Probably we missed out many points.
Not good, because Great Britain is a very fierce rival in the worldchampionship battle.
The less weather influence in this time trial might have a big consequence in the end.

Eschborn-Frankfurt ;
10º  Baiao
A very good result.

   selection SPORTLIFE

Baiao was 10º in Romandie and 10º in Frankfurt ; so a good Giro goal seems to me top 10 GC.

This Giro selection is a last minute mess.
Also because allround helper Pizzinat was sold today for almost 200 times more than what I paid for him 4 days ago.
Besides allround, he was the only good helper in the 3 Giro stages with sprint finish.

Hopefully this lack of "sprint"help, is compensated a bit by selecting 1 hillsclimber and 2 climbers.
Now Baiao should have excellent help in the mountains and the hills.
All 3 were not planned to ride this Giro, but for my climbers it does not matter and they can use the experience.
To Vorre it is less good, because by riding this Giro, he has to ride the Vuelta with 99 form.
Probably a very needed sacrifice ; Baiao really needs a main helper like Vorre, to achieve his GC goal.

Only Rubiera was also planned to ride this Giro, but he is not much of use as helper besides flat-hills stage 5.
And maybe Rubiera will get a free role in stage 5, because helper Vorre is also a better hills rider than teamcaptain Baiao.

91 Baiao ( 32 ), tour
92 Vorre ( 30 ), hillsclimb
93 Rubiera ( 26 ), hills
94 Kummer ( 27 ), climb
95 Macannazi ( 27 ), climb

stage 1 Giro ;
22º  Baiao  on 0:46"
27º  Vorre ( free role )
This seems to me a good result of Baiao, despite being isolated in s4.
I had no faith in Vorre as helper, due to the big s4 difference, ánd because Baiao should have had enough good help of the climbers.
But the climbers did not help in s4, and Vorre his free result was dissapointing, so it would have been better if Vorre was a helper too.

It felt to me based on my cyclists' results as if the weather bonuses & experience were of little benefit.

Very small differences in this time trial, and unfortunately no victory of Workman.
Almost 9 Australians in the points ; Judd was very close, and Iverson had bad luck what most likely caused finishing outside the top 20.
Workman, Shields and Clinton dissapointed a bit, my expectations of them were higher.

Iverson had a mechanical breakdown in s3.

Australia scored 695 points in this time trial. Thé rival Great Britain scored 560 points.
TOP 5 season ranking after 4 NT races ;

1.    1.645
2.    1.340
3.      830
4.      630
5.      550

Next week a flat-cobblehills race in France. It will be extreme hot with 39ºC, so I need to select enough water carriers.
The highest ranked GB cobblehills specialist has an active sun icon, ánd he is better ranked than the best Australian.
Maybe bad news. Although I cannot estimate if this is really bad, due to the different GV of this specific NT race 5, where flat counts a lot.

For now it seems it will be a battle for the worldchampionship between Australia and Great Britain.
But Norway and Spain have amazing cobblehills specialists, and with 2 cobblehills races to go, they might join the battle too.
Not what I expect, because both nations are far behind already, but it is possible.
What is the most worrying ( according to me ) ;
Great Britain will be amazing in flat-cobble race 7, and might gain up a bit in the next 2 cobblehills races.
