Oh, and then I just stumbled across this old message:
So one would imagine that Jakob used another tactic this year, right? Well, uhm, no. His oldest rider is Taaramäe. Jakob - what do you have to say to your defence?
Nothing. Guilty as charge.
My conscience just doesn’t allow me to add P. Gilbert. F. Cancellara, C. Evans. T. Hushovd or Andy Schleck. Ect – Ect… All those obvious names. I just don’t find it fun to have a squad who is similar to more or less everyone else’s.
I would rather finish dead last I guess
. For me this game gives me another reason to follow the young guns extra close. That’s enough for me. So while everyone will probably be off to a great start with P. Gilbert for-example, I will instead be following Tom Jelte Slagter, Elia Favilli or Kenny Elissonde with suspense on Old Willunga.
I stand by my last sentence as well though. It truly is an awesome game and regardless of how everyone plays it, whether it’s to win or just to follow some of your favorite riders or whatever, I truly wish everyone have as much fun as I do during the year.
I strongly hope I am around in May as well… Then, we can continue the debate Hugo… I am always up for discussing some of your picks… But more so the likes of Diego Rosa or Emilien Viennet for-example than Andy Schleck or Davide Rebellin.
Good luck tonight with Rohan Dennis. I don’t know the course, but surely he will top-3?...
