It's fun counting every point in the beginning - all points for the top20 riders beside Porte,McCarthy and Gesink is a bonus compared to last year ;)

GC men: Oomen, Latour, Kennaugh, Mas
Designated sprinters: Halvorsen, Minali
Wildcards: Senechal, Navardauskas

Unfortunately, all my GC aces that were up there after stage 5 dropped some positions on stage 6. Oh well. As Kazistuta said, these points are a bonus for all of them compared to last year, and they showed a solid base for this upcoming season.

Latour 48
Oomen 38
Mas 30
Minali 5
Senechal 5
Kennaugh 5
Navardauskas 5
Halvorsen DNS

I'm glad Navardauskas showed some sort of shape after last year's woes - he was mostly on domestique duties anyway just like Senechal and Kennaugh, I assume. I had hoped for a little better from Minali - his best result being 10th on stage 1 - but perhaps he struggled with the heat.
I am disappointed we didn't get to see Halvorsen in action and the injury will set him back a bit - but better at the start of the season than halfway through I suppose.

Next week's roster:
Vuelta a San Juan (2.1)
Pantano
Nizzolo

Only two riders but both could score. This race doesn't have a very good GC field, I'd only rate Nibali and Majka as definitely better than Pantano so I'm hoping for a top-5 on GC for him. Of course at this point in the season it's always a guess how well a rider will come out of the off season.
For Nizzolo I am just hoping he shows some sort of shape, I would be delighted with a couple of top-5's.

Sharjah Tour (2.1)
Coquard

I had no idea this race even existed but I have a rider racing! I have no clue if this race is climby or not but it appears to have a TT which should negate Le Coq's chances to win the GC. Still hoping he wins 1 or 2 stages, he should have "a fire in his belly" ;)

I'll leave the Mallorca startlist for later as that's always a mystery to me until 1 day before the event.

Maybe it's a French Damien he is referring to.

OK, but still such poor evidence for the optimism that the comment is scarcely justifiable.

Bennett, Gesink, Latour, and Oomen all with some nice GC points in Australia. Hoped for at least 1-2 of them getting into the Top10, but happy that they still scored decently making Kennaugh the guy I'm currently most disappointed in. (early season is fun, right?)

Next (this) week started of nice aswell with Bonifazio and Nizzolo already getting points in Argentina.

Full rosters
San Juan
Bonifazio
Nizzolo
Padun
Carapaz
Ganna

Looks like a well balanced team... Looking forward to see Padun and Carapaz in action.

Sharjah Tour
Coquard

Like almost everyone....

Well Padun is already out so you'll have to wait a little longer.

Absolutely. Hopefully he will achieve some more good results this year but he got back to back wins now with Tour Of Rwanda last year and now La Tropicale La Amissa Bongo at the start of this year so seems promising at least :)

In the Tour Down Under I got many points. My cyclists have been very good:
Guerreiro 80 points
Bauhaus 51
Dlamini 50
Mccarthy 49
More 30
Edmonson 7
Arndt 5
Minali 5
Restrepo 5
Scotson 5
Sütterlin 5
In total, I now have 475 points, so I hope to continue very high in the classification CQ RANKING MANAGER 2018.

In the Vuelta a San Juan we have started with many illusions, although with few points. I have a good team, so I hope to accumulate many points. Hope that nobody will take it from us! These are my workers:
CAVAGNA
GARCÍA CORTINA
MULLEN
NIZZOLO
SBARAGLI
VAN DER SANDE

Isn't Hodeg a pretty quick guy? Would be too bad if he is used to slave at the front in most races.

Pantano didn't finish among the GC contenders in yesterday's stage. Hopefully he can bounce back in today's TT or maybe Trek will focus on Stetina for GC.

the update didn't come out until afternoon my time yesterday and I got real busy, so I have just tweaked the spreadsheet now but won't have time to post an update until about 5-6 hours from now. I know the early season is an eager time so just thought I'd send a message!
