Congratulations to pollyjean for the clear first place. And my deepest respect to carapaz for the tough fight for second place. Except for VdGG, I think we all had a good season with a fair share of wins. Thanks all for the fun and excitement.
Idioto got 60 points, Caso 30, for their 2d and 4th place in Emilia. Without Idioto, Caso would have gotten 40 points (3d). And Gurard would have been 6th instead of 7th, +5. So the purchase of Idioto, resulted in +55 points. Difference between Carapaz and my team: 70 points. So, even without Idioto it seems I would have achieved promotion.
Yes yes, everything being the same (Wautier falling today 3 times.)
Congrats to Polly and Naspa for promotion and to Carapaz for the big fight delivered to Naspa. And this, till the last race !
Happy to stay in the div. the aim of being in the 5 of the four last races of this season has ben reach with difficulties.
I hope my new generation will be more competitive next season because with Carapaz, MOI, Dustin, Levi's and Joachim it will be enough hard and division will be surely completed with strong teams... By the way TGV and Pantera were strong too...

* white jersey not in report * team standings (win) not in report
Ah, I was most successfull in whites. De Vidts (1x, Colorado) and Guidulli (3x, Oman, California, France) has most white jerseys. Guidulli was helped by the injury of Cardoso (TGV) in France, however still two grand tour white jerseys, Giro and Vuelta. The best U21 climber without a doubt. Carapaz was pretty succesfull with 3 wins. Talloen 2x (Suisse, Britain) and Wanbeke 1x (Paris-Nice). Dustin had Jonard (Alps) and Collet (Norway) win a white. Mothers had Kohlhaase in Yorkshire. And Panteras N had one as well (Salvatti?, Utah).
Hope I did not overlooked someone. Strange that Thys (Mothers) did nog get any. Probably 4-5 second places?
