Yeah, my problem is that in summer, mostly August, I will be out of home, I'll have good connection, but not time to focus in the game  ;D ;D

haha, I'm not going to reconsider it, for sure. It's time for new blood, anyone different than VOS, Aurora or me. We had Ophi once... we have new good aussies now, like Zatarra, NervionBike, the team with the most awesome name in the game ꧁༒•TheKing•༒꧂or oldies like TeaMetal or Frenkie that never came here  ;D

I'll keep watching from the sides for a while; real life took over, and I barely sign up for races and change trainings from time to time... maybe in a few seasons

Good luck to whoever will be NT manager next season!

I'm afraid race 2 would appear to be the difference.  You'll just have to get a bunch of top-class 19-year-old Aussie climbers to train up next season.

...or Frenkie that never came here  ;D

I was NT coach for Australia some years ago (worldchampion with Australia NT, U23 and U21  ;D)

There are less than 100 points of difference to decide who will be the next NT manager...  ;D

10º      SPORTLIFE   7144      
11º      Zatarra   7062

Lol, oh dear... I better not with the Aussie championship then.

On a serious note; I'm not going to win. SPORTLIFE has some great hillers that Zatarra is currently lacking.

Well, it is not decided yet ;
You have TT specialist Zwinkels versus my hills specialist Rubiera, who has a too low stamina for the WC race.
And Rubiera has just a 23yo helper with extreme low health who is not allowed to rest of his manager, even not for the WC race.
Zwinkels is bought a week ago, perhaps just in time that he has TC bonus.
Good luck in the time trial, Zatarra !

Zwinkels indeed had TC and pretty good staff/circumstances. Yet, he finished 30th for just 50 points. I don't think my 6* hillers will score 34 more points than your Rubiera, Vos.

In hindsight I shouldn't have sold Caldeira just yet. Becoming the Aussie champion is a goal, but I just didn't expect it to be manageable this season. Kasper van der Goor did surprisingly well.

Clearly a 30th place of Zwinkels is by far not good enough.
And indeed, your van der Goor did very well, including his individual Dutch championship. That is also a very nice, prestigious price.

There are still no candidates to do the honorable and fun NT job of next season with a good Australian generation.
No problem to me to do the job next season,
but I like it much more when for example someone makes his debut as Australian NT manager.
