Great start for the teams with Mathews and Dennis unfotunately none of them made my team.

Had my hopes on Cam Meyer and Hephurn, why did'nt any of them ride. Cam better win the road race, or i get mad.

Had the feeling that Boobridge either would be storming and podium or be totally crap, that he was crap don't bother me much as almost every team has him.

Bad start on the first race had expected some points, but hard to score point when the guys on your team don't ride. Frustrating it is.

Hope that Cam Meyer, Hass and Sutton will get my team on the score board in the road race.

Matthews off to an unexpectedly good start. Didn't see that coming. Could be a very serious contender for both the nationals and Tour Down Under.

Don't care much about Bobridge, as most teams have him. Sad to hear about his medical condition though. I like him as a rider.

Even though it is a surprise that he beat Porte, I don't think Matthews' result is that much of a surprise. He got 3rd in 2010 as well, and the field just isn't that strong.

In any case I'm glad I have both Matthews and Dennis. Only 38 have the latter... could prove to be a costly mistake for those who didn't pick him.
Lol, yeah, 2nd at the Aus TT nationals (a race usually dominated by young pros as the old pros don't bother) is a sure sign of a great season ahead.

Not saying that I don't expect anything from Dennis (in fact he's on my CQ team as well) but we still don't know if the guy can properly climb, for instance.

Might struggle to defend his points at the TDU. It depends on his schedule, if it's non-WT I think he should get 5-600 without too much of a hassle.

Huh. I said "could," not "almost certainly will." To me, it's relevant to compare his time with that of Durbridge, who has already proven himself as a TTist in the pro ranks and clearly peaked for this race.

Dennis, meanwhile, had to come back from an injury. I don't think he can "climb," either, but he's more alround than Durbridge, who picked up plenty of points last year. I think it's a promising start, yes.

...and Durbridge crashed during a training ride yesterday. So comparing the times they set to make any conclusion about their general qualitites does not make much sense

I read that it was nothing serious, but you're right... it could have had a significant impact on his time.

and yes, I've both Matthews (he was in my team even last year, so I think he can reach 1k points...) and Dennis (he can be the Moser of the year...)

Ahh, I've forgotten the pleasure of going online and finding out I've got riders that scored points!
