Australia s27
« on: September 18, 2022, 06:53:20 AM »


A new NT season starts !  :)

A pretty common NT schedule, with one exception ; a climb-sprint race, for the first time ever a NT race.
Also remarkable ; most races are in Switzerland.
This season there will be less TT points, and Australia is not good in flat-cobbles despite having a new 24yo teamcaptain on flat-cobble.
Still, if the tactics go well, it should be possible to battle for the podiumplaces or even battle for the worldchampionship.
Of course, another WC title is the season goal, although I did not look yet if Australia is good in the exceptional NT race 6.

season 27 schedule =

1.   Baar  HHHHH  118 km
2.   Leukerbad  MDFMM  155 km
3.   Bellinzona  FFFFF  120 km
4.   Zaragoza  TT-FFFFF  52 km
5.   Waremgem  FHC^C^C^ 180 km
6.   Genève  FMMDF  150 km
7.   Fribourg  CCCCC  189 km

I have some computer issues, also with the Australian NT evaluator that seems to be gone.
But luckily I found an old Dutch NT evaluator that has almost all GV's exactly the same as in the Australian NT evaluator.


RACE 1 : SWISS HILLS

26ºC

Baar, Switzerland,
Probably every point is needed this season, so, Australia goes full power with the best 9 hills specialists in this NT race 1.
Even 34yo Fergus Emerton is selected because he is a better helper due to his max. xp, compared to a few with simular GV but low xp.

For once I will mention my estimated GV's for this specific short pure hills race.
( Carpenter has a little misleading high GV due to 100 on hills-skill, therefore he is ranked lower in my selection. )
Of course it is possible that my GV estimation is not entirely correct or even not correct at all.
If it is a bit correct, then it is clear that we do not have a top contender. But if the tactics go very well, top 10 should be possible for Bush.

Australia NT selection :

91,16  James Bush ( 31 ) Kelme4ever
91,09  Paddy Friend ( 30 ) JGMTeam
90,24  Rob Mitchell ( 29 ) Villavante
90,24  Derek Jons ( 25 ) RHyNeStOnEs
90,51  Callum Carpenter ( 27 ) Rekutxuteam
90,09  Nate Gailes ( 31 ) Elgrand
89,60  Danny Gill ( 31 ) LanihuliCycling
89,43  Natham Middleton ( 25 ) Teamclaes
88,78  Fergus Emerton ( 34 ) Hero_cycling

1º  James Bush ( 31, Kelme4ever )  = VICTORY ! ! !  8)

s1 = All 9 Australians in the front peleton of just 52.

s2 = Still all 9 in the front peleton that narrowed down to just 30.

s3 = Time to take it easy, Bush ( captain ), Friend ( free role ), and 3 helpers dropped to the huge 2nd group.
The front group of 14 was just 0:09" ahead, including 4 Australian helpers in so called forward pawn tactics to control this race.

s4 = The front group has still 14 cyclists and still just 0:09" ahead, but it is a different front group in s4 ;
Gill, Emerton and Middleton dropped out of the front group, and as expected a big drop, they were useless in the 3rd group now.
Mitchel stayed in the front hoping that captain Bush would join him.
And if it was up to Jons, he would have brought the Australian teamcaptain back to the front, because Jons made a jump to the front.
Unfortunately Bush could not follow him and stayed in the 2nd group in order to save energy for a fierce full force attack in the final.
Luckily Bush had still Gails as the very important helper in s4.
The other helper Carpenter could not follow the high pace and dropped in s4,
and too bad that free role Friend dropped to the 3rd group also, to me very unexpected,
and no chance now to score some extra points because the 3rd group ( nrs 39 to 58 ) is already 0:16" behind.
Situation s4 = 2 "helpers" in the front group of 14, and Bush + 1 helper in the 2nd group of 24 on 0:09"

s5 = Fierce attacks of 4 teamcaptains who all came out of the 2nd group, and formed a break away group of 4.
They stayed 0:06" ahead of 3 chasers, and Bush finished it off by outsprinting Maza ( SPA ), Aas ( NOO ) and Lorca ( COL ).

Helpers Mitchel ( 21º ) and Jons ( 26º ) almost scored points, 6 foreigners out of their group of 14 did score points.
Free role Friend had an off-day, or bad tactics, and finished as 31º, 10 seconds behind the last points-scoring group.
But because the points were approximately equally divided among the nations, it resulted in a lead of Australia with 300 points. :)

Next week a mountain race in cold weather, and again in Switzerland.
There Australia is going to try to defend the current nr 1 position, despite many countries are very close in points.

Australia u24 ( 111 cyclists ) :


CFF u23 Dream Team =
TT
6. Pat Ray  ( 22, Ingaunia )
cobble
1. James Crickton  ( 22, HTCHungria )
tours
4. Dudley Bell  ( 22, AmericanChow )

Only 3 Australians in the u23 DT, what might be a low record.
The Australian pride in the u23 DT is James Crickton, a cobblehills specialist.
Although we have also excellent cobblehills specialists in the generations before and after him, see the u24 lists.

The u22 and/or u21 lists will be published later this week.
And hopefully soon we have 15x 19yo's so I can post the u20 lists too. So, send your scout to Australia and good luck ! 8)

Thnx Vos! Good to see GV lists  8)  It's a suprise that Bob Pernom is the best sprinter in the U24 generation. That says a whole lot about the australian sprintgeneration.

You're welcome.  :)
And indeed, Down Under a lack of good sprinters below the current 27yo great sprinters generation.
So, it might be possible in the future that Bob Pernom gets extra NT selections as one of the main sprint helpers.  :o  :))
And perhaps for a future sprint teamcaptain that is pulled by me this season. So far already one potential very good sprinter recruited.

Of course, Bob Pernom gets other NT selections as well, and that is in his speciality ; flat cobbles.
If he trains well this season ( especially one skill needs much higher, you know what skill I refer to ), most likely he will be Aus. teamcaptain.
And we need a good flat cobble specialist desperately, because at the moment just 2 Australian golden flat cobble specialists ;
26yo Rooney ( nr205= 52nd on flatcobble ) and 24yo Ray ( nr93= 22nd on flatcobble )

Good luck with training your 3x 23yo Aussies, B.E-L !  8)

RACE 2 : SWISS MOUNTAINS

5ºC

Gstaad, Switzerland,
Good to see that 4x 24yo's made this selection, based on my estimated GV for this specific mountain race.
No debuts, because all 4 were in the picture of the Aus.NT managers when they were younger, and had NT-selections already.

Despite the average young age of this selection, Australia should be pretty strong and has Stu Vaughn as undisputed teamcaptain.
There are many fierce foreign rivals, but Vaughn likes this stage too. He should be able to get a top result ( if the tactics go very well ).

Australia NT selection :

Stu Vaughn ( 27 ) JGMTeam
Garret Mitchum ( 28 ) barrio
Garret Woods ( 29 ) FlyEaglesFly
Rick Cann ( 24 ) Wizards
Ken Holland ( 24 ) ForzaItaly
Barry Carpenter* ( 29 ) LottoGranadier
Rick Pierre ( 24 ) Kalenjicycling
Allan Sheehan ( 24 ) Stuttgarter
Henry Footman ( 31 ) BLOEMENAANDEMITTE
