AUSTRALIA S17: The best nation of CFF
« on: May 14, 2021, 01:50:01 PM »



Season 17 Calendar:



A season with 2 TT is always a good season, even if the old hall of famers from Aurora are not with us, new kids are coming, and probably, this season they will raise again!

Rankings






Comments about rankings:
  • TT: Bad Mount seems to be our best guy, with Kirk close, but then, from 3rd to 8th, differences are quite small, just changing a few % here or there...the list changes. The new Auroras are there, but they still have a long trip to the top of the list
  • Hills TT: This a list with default values, for the race of this season, it will be different, so this list has not a lot of value for the current calendar. The % for the coming race will have less hills and more flat for sure.
  • Climbing TT: Nothing to say here, Oscar is the king here and now is on the market!
  • Climbing Hills and Hills Climbing: 2 list for the 2 tipes of races that we have usually in the Teams Calendar, not very useful for NT as it is strange to have this kind of race here. Martin is the king here.
  • Climbing flat and pure: The mix of this 2 list will be the list for the race of this season as the % for that race will have less flat than the default Climb-flat values. Colin, Jason and Ryan will fight for the leadership.
  • Sprint: There is only 1 leader here, and is The Bullet, now, the #2 in the DT. A flat sprint is not his best terrain, but he will try to be in the top10.
  • Hills: Same situation as in the Mountain race. The race of this season has a bit of flat, so a combination of both lists (pure and flat) will give us the final list for the NT race. Anyway, there is not way other guy that is not a bronxie will be the leader, Fergus has to gain experience to be the leader. He is our future.
  • Cobblestone: A bit surprising to see Friend still there, his HUGE experience is decisive, but Keith is close...and the season is long...
  • Cob-Hills: Marc Huling is our man. He will be very good helped by the TeaMetal kids.

Unfortunately my 24-year-old TTers have to compete against 30/31-year-old TTers, and TTers grow with age (see the difference in Levin's & Trump's stats in the season 6 thread compared to season 13).
Levin 95.92 > 98.64
Trump 95.13 > 98.44

The good news is that:
Nobby Licuria is 95.89
Tod Henderson is 95.50

And we're also no longer a one-race nation.

Awesome! The 'Ali Haber' in your climbing U23 DT should be 'Ali Steele'. My Haber received some text messages wishing him good luck in the mountains this season following your post and he ran to me angry how I dared to let him climb mountains. He almost cried...

Ali Steele is disappointed with the mistake. He wants to change his nationality.

S17 RACE 1: Les Vieilles Forges - Monthermè



The Nine:


Comment: Shields will be our leader this year again, but Emerton is close, his lack of experience can be decesive. No U24 has been selected for this race, we need the more people the better to try to help Gerard to the goal, a TOP 5.

After checking fail in sector 1...



But at the end, I achieve to have 2 helpers with Gerard in sector 4, even if we were in the fourth group...the saved strenghts were good to climb to the 5th position...

Not sure if starting harder would be better, probably yes, to get a podium...

5   Gerard Shields      28   0: 21"   180

Australia is likely to lose the number 4 & 7 on the TT Flat list in the next couple of days to make way for 19-year-olds.

No Australian selection in NT race 2  :-[
Too bad, Australia could have scored points in the mountains, ánd could have competed for world championship with this season calendar.

Indeed, I hope the same. Hopefully he just forgot it.

Good to hear from you, Franky, and that you are allright. :)

The horrible feeling you can wash away by trying to get a good sprint result with the Australian Bullet. ;)
For example his very first top10 result in a NT race would be great.
But of course there is a big chance it will not go the way you planned ; I know that can happen to the best in sprint races, hahaha.
The 1 stripe of wind can make it even more difficult / unpredictable. Anyway, already good luck !

And don't forget to make a NT sprint selection, because Down Under we have a very harsh penalty for NT managers who forgot it twice ;
you will be tied to a swinging stick, and then we will send you to the eurovision songcontest where you have to sing a song.

in the picture ; The near future of Franky ?  ;D
