awesome!

johnjackjoe [JohnJackJoe Racing] Sunday 23.Apr 13:40, 2017
Nibali won the first intermediate and is now in the virtual lead by one second over Roson!

goon1221 [BMC] Sunday 23.Apr 10:56, 2017
He is very good actually ... he knows this sport redicelously well ..... but I LOVE it if he gets it wrong once in a while :)))

Assassin [TheTrueAssassins] Sunday 23.Apr 10:49, 2017
Axelgaard isn't a mythical god you know :) He can get it wrong, not that i ever read his work though.

goon1221 [BMC] Sunday 23.Apr 09:59, 2017
Very very tecnical final in croatia today, alot of twists and turns and a 200 - 250m pretty steep climb over the line .... 7 8% ish at is seems from the profile .... and with Nibali 2 sec behind in the gc .... isn't posible we see Roson and Nibali in the mix for the stage win today ?? Non of them are mentioned in Axelgaards preview ( he isn't exactly known as the guy that leaves options out :D ).... I understand theres other guys here that are way more likely to win this than thoes guys, but still ... is it so unthinkable that not even Axelgaard mention them in his preview :D ... :)))

Aragonite [TORA TORA TORA] Saturday 22.Apr 02:08, 2017
They did win it in 2015 with Nordhaug. And Roche was runner up last year. I just can't see that type of rider in this years squad. But as I said I have not seen this years parcours, they may be different to the previous two years.

Viktor86 [Le Tour de Brabant] Saturday 22.Apr 01:19, 2017
Argonite. The only reason Sky is there, is because they're British. They don't care about the race, thus field their irrelevant weaker squad, as they need their races as well.

Assassin [TheTrueAssassins] Friday 21.Apr 22:45, 2017
My teams already dead so go Polanc!!

Francisco [K92-União Ciclista] Friday 21.Apr 22:44, 2017
No Assassin, they will show kids how to handle with that climb...:)
I hope...so miserable result so far... and to continue, I'm affraid...:)

Assassin [TheTrueAssassins] Friday 21.Apr 21:54, 2017
Kvasina and Rogina are aged heroes, they shall be put down :)

Aragonite [TORA TORA TORA] Friday 21.Apr 21:51, 2017
Hope you are wrong Francisco. And funnily enough, hope Assassin is right.

Assassin [TheTrueAssassins] Friday 21.Apr 20:44, 2017
Tomorrow Aragonite shall emerge victorious. He has the great Polanc :)

Francisco [K92-União Ciclista] Friday 21.Apr 20:43, 2017
Aragonite,this isn't over yet...
Tomorrow Rogina and Kvasina will smash them all... :)

Assassin [TheTrueAssassins] Thursday 20.Apr 22:04, 2017
Yep :)

Aragonite [TORA TORA TORA] Thursday 20.Apr 22:01, 2017
We are on the wrong thread here, better wind it down.

Assassin [TheTrueAssassins] Thursday 20.Apr 21:55, 2017
Yep, Certainly could be interesting

Aragonite [TORA TORA TORA] Thursday 20.Apr 21:53, 2017
Knox did finish second in that U23 LBL. Don't think he could be in any better form.

Assassin [TheTrueAssassins] Thursday 20.Apr 21:51, 2017
Saying that, Lawless rides for Axeon so perhaps not too far for him

Assassin [TheTrueAssassins] Thursday 20.Apr 21:49, 2017
I would judge Knox on where he finishes on Sunday but getting good vibes from him. But yes i agree perhaps a step too far but i wouldn't be surprised if one of them goes quite well. Also have Ethan Hayter as a reserve, who is an absolute tank.

Aragonite [TORA TORA TORA] Thursday 20.Apr 21:47, 2017
Gabriel Cullaigh was one of my picks for U23 LBL, but was a DNS. And Knox is currently top ten in Croatia GC. Do think its one step too far for these two, and the otherTeam GB riders at the moment.

Assassin [TheTrueAssassins] Thursday 20.Apr 21:39, 2017
Moscon is a reserve btw

Assassin [TheTrueAssassins] Thursday 20.Apr 21:36, 2017
It's a nice field, some of the Team GB lads look interesting and A-Frame from JLT has been in great form

Aragonite [TORA TORA TORA] Thursday 20.Apr 21:35, 2017
Any names sticking out for Yorkshire Assassin? Haven't seen the parcours, but if similar to the last two, I like the look pf Daryl Impey. Sky have put out a pretty poor team for me, Moscon would have been nailed on, if he had been given the chance again.

Assassin [TheTrueAssassins] Thursday 20.Apr 20:56, 2017
:) Yes it is difficult.

Aragonite [TORA TORA TORA] Thursday 20.Apr 20:50, 2017
Very cool. But I found it impossible to ignore the title!

Assassin [TheTrueAssassins] Thursday 20.Apr 20:46, 2017
Ignore the title of the link but Jan thinks i'm great too! :)

Viktor86 [Le Tour de Brabant] Thursday 20.Apr 20:38, 2017
I don't know any obscure riders well enough to have a mancrush on, but my most favourite pretty obscure rider is Marc Goos. His place of birth is not really a coincidence in this one.

Aragonite [TORA TORA TORA] Thursday 20.Apr 20:28, 2017
Mine is really obscure(now anyway). Brice Feillu.

Assassin [TheTrueAssassins] Thursday 20.Apr 20:25, 2017
Just going to send that to Mr Jules. I'll make sure your funeral is nice EPO :)

Erythropoietin [Erythropoietin] Thursday 20.Apr 20:24, 2017
if we are all to pick an obscure rider to have a mancrush on then i want kris boeckmans. not letting convicted murderer justin jules get away with any bullshit

grivko still up for grabs

Assassin [TheTrueAssassins] Thursday 20.Apr 20:17, 2017
Yeah attacked Chava and couple of others at base of Abetone climb.

Aragonite [TORA TORA TORA] Thursday 20.Apr 20:16, 2017
Remember it vaguely. Came home alone from a breakaway.

Assassin [TheTrueAssassins] Thursday 20.Apr 20:10, 2017
2015 Giro :) And the bet scenario :)

Aragonite [TORA TORA TORA] Thursday 20.Apr 19:46, 2017
Why the Polanc love?

Assassin [TheTrueAssassins] Thursday 20.Apr 19:37, 2017
No i didn't go with him and it's killing me. Nice choice from urself tho :)

Aragonite [TORA TORA TORA] Thursday 20.Apr 19:36, 2017
Polanc owned by 2/121 Assassin. I'm one of them. Just looked at your team, and you are not the other. Have you had a bet on him, at an outrageous price?

Assassin [TheTrueAssassins] Thursday 20.Apr 19:12, 2017
Durasek loses Jersey and a it of time, Niemiec DNF. Leaves a certain Jan Polanc. Assassin is very happy :)

Viktor86 [Le Tour de Brabant] Wednesday 19.Apr 18:17, 2017
I was forgotten I selected Durasek in my team.

Nathan [De Adelaar] Wednesday 19.Apr 17:54, 2017
I want a top 100 :D

Aragonite [TORA TORA TORA] Wednesday 19.Apr 17:17, 2017
Another race where the parcours has been changed, due to snow.

Assassin [TheTrueAssassins] Tuesday 18.Apr 18:43, 2017
They up on website now i see

Erythropoietin [Erythropoietin] Tuesday 18.Apr 18:42, 2017
you sure about that? i added the top 30. valdicchiana takes the stage by 0.75 pts

Assassin [TheTrueAssassins] Tuesday 18.Apr 18:42, 2017
PCS doesn't count

Assassin [TheTrueAssassins] Tuesday 18.Apr 18:40, 2017
There are no official full results yet

Erythropoietin [Erythropoietin] Tuesday 18.Apr 18:33, 2017
full results havent been added yet. looks like you will get the stage win

Lol123 [High Flyers] Tuesday 18.Apr 18:19, 2017
grrrr

Logreid [JohnGadretPartykjepp] Tuesday 18.Apr 14:34, 2017
I had Matteo Rabottini at 80% but chickened out :*(

Andy [Luxembourg Finest] Tuesday 18.Apr 14:07, 2017
Is this the time of regretting of not having the myth Mustafa Sayar on my team? Think he will win this race if he has the Turkey 2013 climbing legs.

Francisco [K92-União Ciclista] Tuesday 18.Apr 13:18, 2017
There are plenty of room to those thoughts grow, i'm affraid...
Too many people entering, radical movements growing inside, unemployment, insecurity, etc, etc...
Some measures needed? Of course!!!
Give up? Not the best choice, i believe.
If we look to the planet where's the best place to live on? US, Canada, Australia, New Zeland, Japan and maybe a few others out of discussion, of course...

P.S. Well, maybe Butan i wouldn't mind BUT with my wife and daughter, internet and eurosport, please! :)

Aragonite [TORA TORA TORA] Tuesday 18.Apr 13:04, 2017
Can't agree more. Baffles me how its the minority point of view in the UK.

Francisco [K92-União Ciclista] Tuesday 18.Apr 12:59, 2017
Too sad to hea.
I still believe in a Europe united with all the diferences between...
Even if the dutch minister is right about some things concerning south, there's still place to drive things in the right way...
Pretty sure not so soon but i think it's much better europe working together and not building walls...
At least, between the Atlantic and the Baltic/Aegean line and the Mediterranean and Barents...

Aragonite [TORA TORA TORA] Tuesday 18.Apr 12:38, 2017
Me to Francisco. Me to. Both with Brexit and the party in power. But highly unlikely, they have a huge advantage in all the recent polls.

Francisco [K92-União Ciclista] Tuesday 18.Apr 12:28, 2017
If you allow me i would love to see the elections giving a diferent result, this time...

Francisco [K92-União Ciclista] Tuesday 18.Apr 12:25, 2017
Well, we can think about it... :)
Big changes on the horizon...:)
At least, the jersey would be similar, i love it.. :)

P.S. and Kwiato and Rowe and Moscon and Tao and Kennaugh and Rosa and (maybe) Thomas and Henao, Sergio...:)

Aragonite [TORA TORA TORA] Tuesday 18.Apr 12:14, 2017
Brexit all over again! June 8th General Election.

Aragonite [TORA TORA TORA] Tuesday 18.Apr 12:08, 2017
General Election it is. Thought I was in with a chance too. Was going to offer you team leader Francisco. If only eh?

Francisco [K92-União Ciclista] Tuesday 18.Apr 12:05, 2017
Yes, this time will be way far... :)

P.S. Your island is living hard times, isn't it? About 1st and 2nd issues, no doubt you all have a lot to think about...
The 3rd point it's a non question to me. Where do i sign?.. :)

Francisco [K92-União Ciclista] Tuesday 18.Apr 12:00, 2017
I wasn't Aragonite. :)
The big one was Nibali but not the only one.
A third sprinter (the Astana kid) or Ramunas who can sprint but also win alone in Zagreb, for example...
Durasek, Canola, Grosu and Moreno who can "replace" Vicenzo...
Some doubts as you can see.. :)

Aragonite [TORA TORA TORA] Tuesday 18.Apr 12:00, 2017
Wont be close this time Francisco. Only five picks the same. None of our 125's match. And I dont even have your 150!

Aragonite [TORA TORA TORA] Tuesday 18.Apr 11:48, 2017
I was thinking you!

Aragonite [TORA TORA TORA] Tuesday 18.Apr 11:47, 2017
Big breaking news in the UK at 11.15am gmt. Three favourites seem to be, 1. General Election called, 2. PM resigning, 3. I'm the new DS for Sky.

Francisco [K92-União Ciclista] Tuesday 18.Apr 11:46, 2017
You or me?.. :)
I'm with a HUGE doubt, really!
I'm not confident about the Shark, we all know he do little outside GT's.
I hadn't him but i got coward and i replaced Hansen for him.
probably, i will regret my decision..

Aragonite [TORA TORA TORA] Tuesday 18.Apr 11:42, 2017
Bluffing again Francisco.

Francisco [K92-União Ciclista] Tuesday 18.Apr 10:04, 2017
Glad to see my opponent with so many doubts...:)
Same here as usual...:)

Aragonite [TORA TORA TORA] Monday 17.Apr 23:37, 2017
So many 'ifs and buts' with a lot of the stand out picks in this one.

Assassin [TheTrueAssassins] Monday 17.Apr 22:03, 2017
I might be able to pick Polanc and justify it for once :)

Assassin [TheTrueAssassins] Monday 17.Apr 21:44, 2017
I hate having to use a pcs startlist but i have no choice it seems

BartVelo [BartVelo] Monday 17.Apr 21:36, 2017
PCS names those full teams, no bib numbers though. Sorry Hitman :-)

Nathan [De Adelaar] Monday 17.Apr 21:36, 2017
Reliable

BartVelo [BartVelo] Monday 17.Apr 21:32, 2017
How reliable is this startlist, since 2 teams are not complete?
