NT Teams / AUSTRALIAN NT - Season 23
« on: March 06, 2022, 01:38:48 PM »

Flooding in Gympie 7-9 days ago : Queensland - Australia

Welcome to the season of the great Qld-NSW floods, or in CFF land, season 23.  After yet another NT championship-winning result by Vos (Sportlife), Australia is up to six championships in a row.  You have me instead of Vos, but the good news is that race 6 isn't a cobbles race given that Hunter is 33 years old & aging fast; and is instead a sprint race, which may be one season too early given Sacido's 23-year-olds are still developing, however it's better than the alternative.  And the rest of the season is pretty much block standard races of the main race types.

Current Australian cyclist rankings below.

No season 20 thread, so there is now.

Anyway, Kirk Clinton has snagged his first victory in Stage 1 Catalunya, also claiming the race record off CFF's best ever TTer Richard Levin (and without a weather bonus - Levin had been 33 years when he set that record).

NT Teams / AUSTRALIAN NT - Season 20

Perth City : Swan River Cycling Loop - 6km, 10km, or 18km - Western Australia

Welcome to season 20.  Australia is golden and besides Vos or one of several other Aussie managers being in this position, or if WiC came to Australia, it would be hard to see how Australia could be shorter priced favourites to win the NT title for the third season running (well we could have a 2nd flat-TT race but anyway).  I did notice that we're void of any cobblers younger than 25, so if anybody is training cobbles get your international scout to Australia for almost guaranteed NT selection in upcoming seasons.

But anyway, current Australian cyclist rankings below.

NT Teams / AUSTRALIAN NT - Season 19

A normal road near where I live : Queensland - Australia

Welcome to season 19.  After yet another NT championship-winning result by Vos (Sportlife), you have to put up with my efforts.  Besides having me instead of Vos, there are also several differences in the schedule that's not exactly to our best suit (ie no flat in the hills race), however we do have the bonus of some key cyclists being a season more mature so it works out.  The Brits still have their star NT manager in charge, so retaining the NT title will be the goal to beat them again.

NT Teams / AUSTRALIAN NT - Season 13 - Ending of an era

Somewhere on the road in Queensland

Welcome to season 13.  It's an ending of an era, with all of our favourite cyclists entering the twilight of their careers.  A few may make a farewell tour in season 14, but for so many their NT careers will end here.  Others will see opportunities & a new beginning.  So welcome to season 13, the ending of an era, heralding the arrival of the new.

We're coming up towards the end of an era, the winds of change are marching.  Why not make a change yourself, like Zatarra last season & TeaMetal this season, and join us Down Under.

Our seasonal table of best Aussie cyclists plus up & coming cyclists will be posted shortly, but first, welcome TeaMetal & anybody else who joins us this season; I trust the motel quarantine has been up to standard, and we get to see you competing under the Southern Cross on Monday.

Want to see what CFF's best looks like.  Then look no further.  See what's required to be the best of the best.
And if you have one of CFF's top tier cyclists, why not show them off here.

Off-Topic / Italian Cycling Laws
« on: March 21, 2020, 04:01:37 AM »
Does anybody know when various changes to Italian road use regarding cyclists were made? I'm particularly interested in things like:
  * Safety equipment (helmets etc).
  * Distance cars need to be from cyclists when overtaking (1 metre rule).
  * Single file (or two file) for cyclists.
And if there's any source I can quote, that would be awesome.

NT Teams / Australia NT Season 7

Part of the Brisbane bicentennial bikeway & Kurilpa Bridge over the Brisbane River, William Jolly Bridge in background

Welcome to season 7, and my final season as NT manager for a while.  We have two flat TT races.  My Richard Levin is complaining that they're 40kms too short; however he can suck it up.  Of course the fact they aren't long means finishing 1st isn't a safe bet, but at least we do have a chance of beating the all-powerful Spanish team for quite possibly the final time (unless the Spanish elects a poor NT manager).

We're still going to need decent points in the non-TT races, and can be certain of assistance in the cobbles race 7, however from there it gets into overperform territory yet again (for example my Fraser Morris who's a lowly GB domestique is rated 1.6av higher in pure climbs to Anthony Garza; my silver starred Daniel Cerdan [Spanish domestique] rated 0.6av higher in sprint to Tony Carter [near zero experience]).  Still, we have hope for some further luck coming our way.

Bugs / Winner of 15 Grand Tours Achievement
« on: January 11, 2020, 11:01:44 AM »

I have a mathematics problem.  We've had 6 seasons of CFF3.  The first season nobody was a Div1 team, so effectively 5 seasons.  Three grand tours in a season, equals a maximum of 15 grand tours raced.  Now, unless the same manager has won every single grand tour, it can't be possible for anybody to have won 15 GTs.

I'm pretty certain after my cyclist's NT results & stage victories in the current Div 1 tour, this shouldn't happen.
