Not bad 21st with a rider less than the others :D

Aragonite [TORA TORA TORA] Sunday 16.Jul 14:44, 2017
Another top five, but no cigar.

Sivakov just missing l'Avenir of the big U23 climbing races when he wins this tomorrow, just a exceptional season from him, and the only question is when he turns pro, could be smart to wait until mid-season 2018 just like Lambrecht and Vanhoucke are doing with Lotto. Will be a surprise if he is not going to BMC since he already is at their devo team.

Assassin [TheTrueAssassins] Friday 14.Jul 22:52, 2017
We should have Toscana-Terre Andy, fastest results ever there............ :)

Andy [Luxembourg Finest] Friday 14.Jul 20:51, 2017
Second stage win of the year, both of them in Italian U23 races, I want more of them next year! Zaccanti is the biggest surprise for me so far, didn't know he was such a good rider. Carboni had some good results last year, but didn't deliver in the biggest races, finally he is doing and lucky enough to see him on startlist and pick him. Pure luck really.

Storer a surprise. As italian also glad of the good performance of the two yung guys of team Colpak, didn't know much of them

Nathan [De Adelaar] Friday 14.Jul 13:38, 2017
Good to know that I wasn't the only one with that thought on Storer!

Logreid [JohnGadretPartykjepp] Friday 14.Jul 12:35, 2017
Hope to see the current applecart upset - hipster picks of Areruya and Pronskiy not vindicated at all yet. Had seen Storer as bit more of a puncheur than pure climber, great to see him able to do so well.

Aragonite [TORA TORA TORA] Thursday 13.Jul 14:28, 2017
Thank you Goon.

goon1221 [BMC] Thursday 13.Jul 14:12, 2017
I luaght. ... but then again, I laugh at anything :D

Aragonite [TORA TORA TORA] Thursday 13.Jul 13:59, 2017
The post was meant, 'tongue in cheek'. A joke. Obviously not a very funny one, as no one is laughing.

Koronin [Koronin] Thursday 13.Jul 02:17, 2017
I'm going to guess you are referring to the Eastern time zone in the US. However there are 4 in the continental US. If it's 11am on the East Coast it's 7am on the West Coast.

Viktor86 [Le Tour de Brabant] Thursday 13.Jul 01:32, 2017
''US time'' doesn't exist. :P There are 4 time zones in continental USA.

Aragonite [TORA TORA TORA] Thursday 13.Jul 01:06, 2017
Shouldn't sleep in so late Jspear. This comp. started very late for the European races, 4pm. Which is what 11am US time?

Tomas [Second Coming] Wednesday 12.Jul 22:58, 2017
Just as a side-comment since you meantioned small races and reserves: atleast they are at x1 for the overall.

Jspear [Jspear] Wednesday 12.Jul 22:08, 2017
I was sound asleep. :)

Assassin [TheTrueAssassins] Wednesday 12.Jul 22:05, 2017
damn good job i checked during my lunch break :)

Viktor86 [Le Tour de Brabant] Wednesday 12.Jul 21:21, 2017
Great, already handicapped with only 8 riders...

Andy [Luxembourg Finest] Wednesday 12.Jul 20:18, 2017
All races has different rules about this. Here there are not posted any jersey classification for points and mountain, so no jersey leaders there. It would anyway just be Fabbro, so only reason to give points is to have all jerseys on riders tomorrow for sponsorship reasons.

Aragonite [TORA TORA TORA] Wednesday 12.Jul 20:16, 2017
In the Tour, pts jersey went to winner. No mountain jersey though.

Tomas [Second Coming] Wednesday 12.Jul 20:08, 2017
Wasnt it a tempo stage? Do they give away does jerseys then?

BartVelo [BartVelo] Wednesday 12.Jul 20:02, 2017
no points and mountain jersey awarded?

Tomas [Second Coming] Wednesday 12.Jul 20:02, 2017
Its on the todo-list, and will be introduced once our drag n' drop rider selector goes from testing to implementing.

Jspear [Jspear] Wednesday 12.Jul 19:44, 2017
How close to the race did the start list come out? It really sucks living in the US for these no name small races with last minute changes....I agree there needs to be reserve riders for at least these small races.

sker [Team Paracarri] Wednesday 12.Jul 19:04, 2017
Damn I got Hindley in my team. A reserve pick is really needed for minor races at least

Francisco [K92-União Ciclista] Wednesday 12.Jul 15:05, 2017
Glad to take a quick look at startlist otherwise I would be without captain. Hindley replaced, team ready to race and win.. :)

goon1221 [BMC] Wednesday 12.Jul 13:25, 2017
Thanks guys .... I would never be even close to check out these things :))) I got a pretty star heavy team going here :D

Well, let's hope we can have some echelons today then :D i agree ... this tour is pretty boring .... when the highlights are riders crashing or get kicked out of the race, well, that sais it all .....

LosBrolin [JuhaMieto] Wednesday 12.Jul 12:48, 2017
Live coverage from here would be amazing. I mean damn, small teams, very active racing and to top it off parcours are fantastic. But nah - I'll rather watch Kittel sprinting day in day out :D

johnjackjoe [JohnJackJoe Racing] Wednesday 12.Jul 11:56, 2017
From official Michelton-Scott Twitter he is not listed as starting. Just start times for the other four. https://twitter.com/greenedgeconti

Andy [Luxembourg Finest] Wednesday 12.Jul 11:25, 2017
Looks like Hindley is out also, but no official startlist yet, so he is not removed from startlist.

Nathan [De Adelaar] Wednesday 12.Jul 03:31, 2017
Goodluck! Hopefully you pick the right 2 you believe in ;)

Bst222 [Bst222] Wednesday 12.Jul 02:24, 2017
This is my first race back after my exams let's hope for some a good result!
This race is pretty much 6-7 obvious picks and 2 people you believe in like Eg and Covili for Aragonite.

Aragonite [TORA TORA TORA] Tuesday 11.Jul 17:39, 2017
Thought that was how they were given.

Tomas [Second Coming] Tuesday 11.Jul 17:36, 2017
@Aragonite: probably since u rock ;)

Nathan [De Adelaar] Tuesday 11.Jul 16:58, 2017
Mark Padun is not riding! He has gotten the flu.

Aragonite [TORA TORA TORA] Tuesday 11.Jul 16:54, 2017
What is going on? Every time I pick a new rider, a star is stuck on him. First Covili, now Eg!

johnjackjoe [JohnJackJoe Racing] Tuesday 11.Jul 16:21, 2017
The climbiest U23 stage race is starting tomorrow.

Let's see who else apart from Lotto, BMC, Wiggins, Colpack and Michelton can turn it up. I see a few candidates that can surprise, but 5 difficult days will probably leave the same known talents up front in GC
