I do like having riders from Veranclassic, and Roompot. They both seem to let all their riders have a go, and are invariably very attacking.

Can see him in Veranclassic or do like Wirtgen, sign for Ago (their farmer team) and then go to Veranclassic the season after. Many good races in Belgium for a rider who can both sprint and survive short climbs.

A bigger team to come in for Pit, after this weeks performance?

Even Colin Heiderscheid? Not surprised if he is in Leopard next year

You might have competition. I'm getting a taste for these Luxembourgers. :)

Main goal for next draft is #WirtgenBrothers and #LeyderBrothers

Get his brother. :)

Should have stolen him when I had the chance in penultimate round ;)

Best 2 Gadrets worth I've spent in the SF. :)

Pit Leyder podium overall is one of the biggest surprises this season for me.

Nathan [CT Glory] Sunday 3.Jun 15:44, 2018

Very solid performance again, hup Pit!

Andy [Luxembourg Finest] Saturday 2.Jun 18:11, 2018

Never expected him to be this good. I have looked at Misch to be the most talented of the brothers, but fantastic that Pit has take a major step to this season

My boy Pit did good Andy. :)

Kirsch's name was mentioned several times towards the end. But I think it was because they were also surprised he wasn't there. I certainly couldn't see him.

Aragonite [TORA TORA TORA] Saturday 2.Jun 17:41, 2018
6th FC-manager overall - 11th FC-manager last 6 weeks
There was a group of about 12/15 went to the line together. Don't think Krieger or Kirsch were there(commentary in a language I didn't understand, not surprising really as I can only speak/understand English. :).

goon1221 [BMC] Saturday 2.Jun 17:35, 2018
13th FC-manager overall - 25th FC-manager last 6 weeks
Kirsch gone to? .... If so, i gotta say i am a little surprised 

goon1221 [BMC] Saturday 2.Jun 17:30, 2018
13th FC-manager overall - 25th FC-manager last 6 weeks
Ah, well.... be careful what you wish for :D ...

Aragonite [TORA TORA TORA] Saturday 2.Jun 17:22, 2018
6th FC-manager overall - 11th FC-manager last 6 weeks
Got dropped on the last big climb, I think.

goon1221 [BMC] Saturday 2.Jun 17:17, 2018
13th FC-manager overall - 25th FC-manager last 6 weeks
Sure?

Aragonite [TORA TORA TORA] Saturday 2.Jun 17:08, 2018

Let's say it like this . .. I HOPE these climbs are too hard for Krieger today :D

goon1221 [BMC] Friday 1.Jun 17:40, 2018
13th FC-manager overall - 25th FC-manager last 6 weeks
Sometimes reserves hurts :D .... this is definitely one of those .... I blame Leopard for not answer my mail :D

Andy [Luxembourg Finest] Friday 1.Jun 17:39, 2018
26th FC-manager last 6 weeks
Because of intelligence-led doping controls?

Nathan [CT Glory] Friday 1.Jun 17:37, 2018
15th FC-manager overall
Worst timing ever from Krieger to do so well :D

Partykjeppen [Il Piccolo Partykjepps] Friday 1.Jun 17:33, 2018
Yeah - I rid myself of Nairo to be able to afford Krieger

Aragonite [TORA TORA TORA] Friday 1.Jun 17:25, 2018
6th FC-manager overall - 11th FC-manager last 6 weeks
First in GC. That queue for Nathan's asset is going to get longer. :)

Andy [Luxembourg Finest] Friday 1.Jun 17:18, 2018
26th FC-manager last 6 weeks
Still no win

goon1221 [BMC] Friday 1.Jun 17:17, 2018

Krieger second :D

I heard there is a queue.

Andy [Luxembourg Finest] Thursday 31.May 19:35, 2018
26th FC-manager last 6 weeks
I know about some who has him as main goal for the draft

Nathan [CT Glory] Thursday 31.May 19:31, 2018
15th FC-manager overall
Is this a threat?

Assassin [Troy The Trader] Thursday 31.May 19:02, 2018

For now :)

Nathan [CT Glory] Thursday 31.May 19:02, 2018

I know it wasn't pointed to me haha, just wondered what it was about. I can call myself the lucky owner of alexander on sf too :)

Aragonite [TORA TORA TORA] Thursday 31.May 18:39, 2018
6th FC-manager overall - 11th FC-manager last 6 weeks
Like I said. He has been, and still is super consistent.

goon1221 [BMC] Thursday 31.May 18:35, 2018
13th FC-manager overall - 25th FC-manager last 6 weeks
Oh, I'm sorry Natan ... if you thought it was pointed in your direction in any way, i can asure you it wasn't... it was a response to a little discussion around his great prolog yesterday and Aragonite ( I think it was) remarkes.... that's all ... you was not on my mind for one second :))

Nathan [CT Glory] Thursday 31.May 18:16, 2018
15th FC-manager overall
Correct, goon. What is the point you are trying to make? I don't really geti t haha

Andy [Luxembourg Finest] Thursday 31.May 18:15, 2018

Mistake to put Kirsch down to 100, when is second today he gonna win GC

goon1221 [BMC] Thursday 31.May 18:00, 2018
13th FC-manager overall - 25th FC-manager last 6 weeks
Krieger 5th today ...

Did Jimmy not have a good few podiums too?

Andy [Luxembourg Finest] Wednesday 30.May 22:28, 2018
26th FC-manager last 6 weeks
Just 2 more years and he got it

Aragonite [TORA TORA TORA] Wednesday 30.May 22:12, 2018
6th FC-manager overall - 11th FC-manager last 6 weeks
Gaudin is probably to old to eclipse Jimmy's record. Started to late. :)

goon1221 [BMC] Wednesday 30.May 22:00, 2018
13th FC-manager overall - 25th FC-manager last 6 weeks
No way ... this is what Engoulvent is known for, and it's still his stage :D 3 years with all podiums, and we can discuss it again :D

Aragonite [TORA TORA TORA] Wednesday 30.May 21:47, 2018
6th FC-manager overall - 11th FC-manager last 6 weeks
Is it time to rename the Jimmy Engoulvent stage to the Damien Gaudin stage?

13th FC-manager overall - 25th FC-manager last 6 weeks
sendt an e-mail to Leopard to ask about Krieger actually... they didn't answer me, so he stayd on reserves unfortunately....

Now looks a good bet to finish in top ten pts scorers, which is all we are after.

Francisco [K92-Team Neverland] Wednesday 30.May 21:24, 2018
21th FC-manager overall
Yes, he's very regular.
Good for Nathan, collecting points with a very consistent conti rider..

But that kid never wins anything, but often top 10

This guy Krieger has had a super consistent season. Looked at him but thought he couldn't do ITT's. 34th last year, massive improvement. On a more positive note, I'm really surprised only seven managers had Gaudin, not going to be punished as much by him, as I thought.

Aragonite [TORA TORA TORA] Wednesday 30.May 21:11, 2018
6th FC-manager overall - 11th FC-manager last 6 weeks
He has had a good few then.

Is it. I'd read rain coming in for the start or middle of the race and getting worse. That was yesterday though.

26th FC-manager last 6 weeks
Looks to be dry for the prologue, but not for the rest of the week. Good to have rain in race again, can give better races sometimes than just sun

Aragonite [TORA TORA TORA] Wednesday 30.May 16:56, 2018
6th FC-manager overall - 11th FC-manager last 6 weeks
Raining now, and forecast on and off all week, here.
More pertinent rain forecast for this race. Considering how technical, explosive, and so short, add a touch of rain and todays result could be a complete lottery.

Andy [Luxembourg Finest] Wednesday 30.May 16:50, 2018

You should try Norway then. No rain for many weeks and new heat records

For a race included a time trail ( only 2.3 km though, and barely a time trail :D... sprint/puncheur show off :D ) this is a nut.... even wors than Fjords, which I think was one of the hardest teams to set this season ....
U23 is in a league of its own, so I don't count them in :D

No WT teams this year so no big favorite like GVA last year. That makes it both a more fun race and manager in my opinion.
