Damm, I lost a big chance today. Never expect that my rider could follow in the flat parts without a good helper but seems the flat training I gave him let him keep in the 1st group with only 85% used. I think I could have done better, don't know if I could win but at least a podium place. If... If... Really frustated
Very surprised to see Galante win, did not expect that at all. My first win in 10 races as well, happy to see we can still do it . Today it seems Bam's riders will have some fun again and maybe Gueroult (although the decrease in skills seems to be hurting him as well)?
I was expecting to make my season result today but Grande couldn't drop Ercolini and Faia in the mountain parts, the influence of TT is bigger that the mountain and I didn't drop them.
I will keep fighting for a stage win and my season is done, I could go to div 2.
Melres United S1 Div 5:38 | S2 Div 4:23 | S3 Div 4:26 | S4 Div 3:13 | S5 Div 2:2 | S6 Div 1:1 | S7 Div 2:2 | S8 Div 2:2 | S9 Div 2:2 | S10 Div 2:2 | S11 Div 2:2 | S12 Div 1:1 | S13 Div 2:2 | S14 Div 2:2 | S15 Div 2:2 | S16 Div 2:2 | S17 Div 2:2 | S18 Div 3:2 | S19 Div 3:2 | S20 Div 2:1 | S21 Div 1:1 | S22 Div 2:1 | S23 Div 2:1 |
Either bam or me probably ;-). After this week the gap between is back to only 50 points, so every thing is possible. Also the youngster tour is still to come, which always can give some unexpected results. To my feeling bam has slightly better chances then my team, as his squad seems a bit broader.
Looking at the standings there are also some other interesting battles: for place 5 & 6 between WC Bloedzak and Tossboom, to avoid relegation (and for an all Dutch 1-7) between Gonzalez, En Danseuse and the Mothers of Invention and to end non-last between Joanteam, Melres United and Thors Thunder.
