Yes ... if there was any doubt about his Giro participation, he effectively killed that yesterday.... Sky's strongest guy ....

Andy [Luxembourg Finest] Friday 20.Apr 23:13, 2018
Elissonde also on fire. His best race in Sky without any doubt. Wasn't expecting him to be their best domestique here with both Rosa and De La Cruz on the team.

Great to see Padun winning a stage. Youngsters were on fire here.

The pack has been decimated and at the WC it'll be 7 time plus 2 times Gramart (3k >10%) on the final rounds. I think it will be hard enough :)

Today's stage is partly the wch course guys ... not as hard as I thought ... a little disappointing actually ...

Kolar it was, and Schwarzmann as well.

2015 Giro was the year ... if you fill your team with all Astana ... you wouldn't make a compleat ass of yourself :D 6 top 25, 2 on the podium ... and the big Aru Landa discussion ... it was great ... rememberable Giro :))

Astana going to go into the Giro super strong.

Andy [Luxembourg Finest] Thursday 19.Apr 12:31, 2018
Must be Kolar, he got time penalty 2 stages in-a-row now.

Bora losing one rider a day. Who will it be today? :D

Andy [Luxembourg Finest] Wednesday 18.Apr 14:24, 2018
4 men inside 16 sec. Can be fun final 2 stages, but Astana only 1 rider left there after Hirt failed to make it into the group today. Astana got the quantity, but not the quality here. A shame Sosa crashed, he could have been on same time as Pinot now.

Aragonite [TORA TORA TORA] Wednesday 18.Apr 14:22, 2018

Yeah, what a fail by Astana. And LLS couldn't even beat Pinot or Pozzovivo in the sprint for bonus seconds.

Andy [Luxembourg Finest] Wednesday 18.Apr 14:19, 2018
Lopez learned by Landa how to lose unnecessary seconds in the final km. Pozzovivo 1 second ahead of Froome in GC now, and very close between them and Lopez for second/third/fourth

Great win by O'Connor. Joining the long attack and still attacking later to win the stage.

Andy [Luxembourg Finest] Wednesday 18.Apr 13:30, 2018
Breakthrough race for Ben O'Connor. Really impressive what he has done this week, maybe GT debut in Giro? Look forward to see what he can do in the future, some real potential in him.

It is only a loan. Might have to wait after the Alps though. Little Louis has been something of a disappointment. ;)

You have a bench also? That is unknown to me ;)

Nice stage win for me. With De La Cruz in my team I have to hope for further Astana dominance^^

Sanchez did look in a bit of a state sat on that bench. Probably shat himself. :)

12th FC-manager overall - 15th FC-manager last 6 weeks
Agree ... I would think it was Sanchez .... the way he attacked the descent looked more like him ...

You seem to have a great record against me in duels

Andy [Luxembourg Finest] Monday 16.Apr 17:34, 2018
He was in the group a minute back. Yeah it is Pinot vs Dawg for 150/125 and then Meintjes and De La Cruz for you vs Hirt and Rosa. Probably few points to the Sky-riders there, and Hirt starting well, so I think you need Pinot to beat Dawg in the overall here. That can of course happen. I just checked earlier today btw, I have climbed 300 Elo points since Strade and all-time low, hope to get new all-time personal record soon. Need 2 or 3 wins for that and with my current form it is possible.

Not a great deal of difference in our duel teams Andy Think it is advantage you. Couldn't see little Louis anywhere.

Andy [Luxembourg Finest] Monday 16.Apr 17:24, 2018
At least so the commentator said. But don't know if it's correct since he didn't manage to recognize Pozzovivo earlier, and very few are easier to spot than him. Politt may be the only one.

Was it Lopez with INSANE luck with his chain in the descent ? The whole chain just hang far out from his bike, and miraclesly went back in place :D

Aragonite [TORA TORA TORA] Monday 16.Apr 17:11, 2018
6th FC-manager overall - 3rd FC-manager last 6 weeks
There were a couple of Astana finished 14th and 15th I think. Surely one was Lopez, and the other probably Hirt.

George Bennett was hit by a card yesterday. Seems to be fine, but who knows what impact that will have on his performance.

Maybe that's Boras version of the mountain crash test for their possible Giro sprinter :D
Probably just had to fill roster spots to give großschartner his "home race" captaincy.

Big fight between 4 wice/captain spot guys ...

Lopez
Pinot
Froome
and this is what makes it impossible to choose Pozzovivo ... he just loves it here .... Froome down for Pozzo? ...
I'm thinking Froome got something to prove for this race, but also he leaves doubts .... Pinot is on paper 3rd best climber here, and his offensive attacking ways when on form, suits well here .... Lopez' s top level is as good as Froome's ... but all Astana does well this season ... so he is in best position for top spot imo....
Any brave thoughts pre deadline guys ? Maybe a 5th or 6th guy ?

Andy [Luxembourg Finest] Monday 16.Apr 00:04, 2018
I was thinking why not Pelucchi captain? :D
