Clement Koretzky seems quite a good rider. I'm surprised he didn't sign at a French WT team, although he'll get more chances at Bretagne, together with Sepulveda.

And what about the first Algerian on a PCT team, Youcef Reguigui?

If that's the case, I might be lucky enough to get a Lutsenko avatar

Anyway, too bad I can't make two avatar bets because I would love to have a competition of Dennis vs Ospina.

Im wary of riders who dominate the youth ranks then suck in the pros. Haller actually played with the big boys 1 day and looked very good.

But what sealed the deal was that i saw no mention of him anywhere in the threads. So i figured people wouldnt pick him - hoping they had forgotten because everyone was looking at the u23 ranks, missing the talent hiding in plain sight.

Sorry Maaaaaaaarten, I overlooked your message.

So Vino and Maaaaaaaarten we have a three way deal? What about you, gustienordic, you want in on it with Coquard as well?

The winner choses an avatar for the losers for how long?

Ryo is of couse welcome as well, but I don't expect it to happen.

I don't have enough faith in Coquard to beat Lutsenko or Dennis
