I should have taken some Aussies

Ah well, Kwiatkowski will win the San Luis ITT anyway

The first year microdose had a huge lead at the end of January cos he'd picked a team exclusively of Aussies. He ended up 80th or something. Perhaps Akubra (with his all Aussie team) will do the same this year, but have patience young padawan

Good start by Matthews.

Bobridge disappointing, but he'll have some up and down days considering he has Arthritis.

Indeed his medical condition can hurt him but he can't be a dissapointment in the game because he was 'free'.

He already had it in 2011 when he had his 395 season... surely he can score some points even with his arthritis

Indeed, warm and dry weather will be the best for him. On paper, he should rule the game in the current Australian races, considering the temperature. Downside, is that his medication consists of pain killers, which can affect his reactions.

No-one is free when there's only 33 slots.

There are only a handful of teams who don't have him and would benefit from a failure of his part.

Haha, I played this game last year too but it is nice to participate from the start

I don't know much about arthritis, but I do know that it gets worse over time.

Of course since he's won a silver medal on the Olympics in August it would be quite surprising if he suddenly couldn't turn the pedals anymore. Maybe the TT is just a fluke result.
