Bad news from Croatia. Simone Ponzi crashed and it's suspected that he broke collarbone. He's been transported to the hospital for the X-ray


Simone Ponzi
On 1/143 teams

Congrats to the producer for a confusing stage! Anyway, great to see Nizzolo finally wins, perhaps this is the year to win a Giro-stage also.

Sure ... this is what i talked about yesterday ... wierd combo, wierd manager ... i was close to fill my team with sprinters becaus of this, but i couldn't find 9 to trust, so plan B was in order :D what i would do IF TTT was first :)))

Hahaha this profile on stage 4 just cracks me up :D looks like a 27 km ish 5 % ish finish :)) let's hope the teams got riders for the TTT :D:D

That long a TTT AFTER that climb is just silly in my eyes. Some teams will be starting it with 3 riders..

PartyFinn went for the rider I originally had there, Mr.Franczak.

I had him as my last rider for 5 min, but ended up with Dan Pearson, Team Wiggo should be good at the TTT and he's a good climber.

The Ratto-revolution starts here (I HOPE).

Just realized this today, but the organizer is actually violating the rules of the UCI here, since a TTT shall take place in the first third of the race, as it stands in the rules. But I guess they have got a permission like ASO did in the Tour last year.

Very difficult to predict GC here, with not that good climbers and a monster TTT. And for the sprints, Cav have to be big favorite with both Eisel and Renshaw back in business, while it's always impossible to choose a sprinter at IAM, they're switching each day.

I am against TTT in stageraces at all, so this really make it to the top for me :D:D never seen anything even close to this combo of stages before by the way, and it sounds a little wierd :D Makes the manager wierd also :D:D we'll see how this goes :))

With that being said, i can't help, looking a little forwards to this wierd madness :D

, Rebellin out, as expected. Well, him or Paterski...

One TTT of 40 km is to damn much, I think. And in a 6 day race...
Trying to figure the diferences teams can make. Even a long climb like that one loses some importance...

Well, let see what happens...

Think it was illness last season, or the pre-season, but what has happened this season is strange. He was so strong in 2014, and Fleche suits him so well!

Taco Van Der Hoorn is racing, that looks like my captain here!

What's been the issue the past season and a half-ish? Illness?

Andy [Luxembourg Finest] Monday 18.Apr 20:30, 2016
11th FC-manager overall
There the official start list is added, strange to see Arredondo racing here and not in Fleche, so perhaps a return to the conti-scene for him after 2016.

Just wondering if Paterski, Rebellin and Szmyd will be all in Croatia...
With Turkey begining in 24th will CCC put all these eggs in the same basket? :)
Seems dificult to me...

Tour of Croatia added. As a replacement for RVV u23 that we removed from the manager calendar, since we couldn't produce a startlist in time. Also weighing in being the "biggest race from Balkan". Combine that with Eurosport showing it. And it should have been on the calendar in the first place ;)

And btw: the main manager calendar is set pre-season. We don't want lots of threads about adding new races to it. So please send a private message about it to one of the admins, if you find a race that you feel "has to be added". Thanks.

Ha ... i didn't knew that this race actually is something to looking forwards for :))) ES race and a 27 km climb :))) hope the startlist is decent also then :)))

I want to play both races, bring it on :-)

Tomas,I know TBL is famous with his fravel roads but honestly for me gravel roads aren't anything special.
And yes gravel roads means hard race,but one hell of a climb and a monstrously long team time trial will make this race special.Great sprinters battle will also make the race more interesting.
Why not decision tu solution for everyone-manager for both races.
I think this is the best cycling race on Balkan and I see this race as World Tour event in future (about 4-5 years).Istra (region where this race goes) always was cycling region and I'm sure opening manager for this race will be excellent thing :D

"100% sure it will better race than Tro-Bro Leon" <-- TBL are up there amongst the best races on the whole cycling calendar.

You're right. Ucka is one hell of a climb.A think best riders need about 50 minutes to do whole climb.
And 40 k TTT,I think this i the longest TTT this season.
Nizzolo,Cavendish,Pelucchi,Guardini,Colbrelli,Hansen,Rebellin,Paterski... What are you waiting for? Please open manager for this race,I'm 100% sure it will better race than Tro-Bro Leon

Parcours looks interesting - short and brutal queen stage followed by 40 k TTT.
