How my fantasy cycling team finished. As you can see the Aussies let me down. Finished 42nd out of 240. So happy days. But I'd gone with Reusser instead of Vos, i'd have been top ten.

Already started with next years squad... Lizzie, Cul, Kool, Brown, Steels, Fisher-Black, Manly... so many of my favourite riders had good seasons & thus are going to be unaffordable for next season.... literally suffering from success.

Break out stars according to cycling news.
Charlotte Kool
Mishca Bredewold
Antonia Niedermaier
Ricarda Bauernfeind
Gaia Realini
Christina Schweinberger

Honorable mentions, Kerbaol, Shirin van Anrooij Daria Pikulik, Kasia Niewiadoma

Ignoring the fact Kool, & Realini broke through last year, I would add Ewers, Steels, Pfeiffer, & Fisher-Black

Realini didn't really progress that much between 2021 and 2022, so I think it's fair to call this year her real breakthrough.

I guess theyre talking about stage wins and stage win contenders as "breakthroughs", as Id have said Kool broke through last year in terms of talent to spot, but its this year when shes winning stages in races and considered a likely stage contender among the other main winning riders. Realini well she should have won that stage at the start of the year, which makes her stand out, but she also was considered a contender for stage wins for alot of races where it did seem Trek had dulled her chances as the year went by.

You may be able to afford them in the Women's CQ game here, or some permutation of riders you are happy to cheer for. Yes: I have found another thread to plug it on. Entries by the start of the women's TDU which is on Friday: that's 11:10 NSW Aussie time, so 01:10 am CET, or in effect, before you go to bed(or out) on Thursday night.
 
It was a surprise victory for Ruegg, however, she was the fastest - I find it hard to beleieve that the Liv Alula Jayco team are not riding these races as its a chance to race their European contingent in lesser competition - It seems a waste of time for them to go to UAE tour.
