Moser: Oh, there's always someone crazy enough! You'll be surprised to hear that three managers picked him in 2013. But he's still not the right answer, because nobody knew about him in 2011. He's been picked every year since though.Trivia: there are three forum darlings on that list (Dombro, Betancur and Moser).
I don't think there was anybody crazy enough to pick Moser after his monster 2012 season (I wasn't playing the game after all).
Betancur is trickier cause his career trajectory was much more linear until 2013, so I guess it made sense to pick him even after his best season to date (scoring 950 at 23 years old). And then there was always hope he could turn things around.
Dombro is hard to assess for me, I never really considered him as a high potential rider so I can't see reasons to pick him say after his 2015 season. But I know he's got diehard fans over here so it's not impossible.
All things considered I'm leaning towards Betancur cause he's got the most aficionados on the forum.
And I'm sure you'll tell me it's none of these three
Dombro was also completely unknown in 2011, but his results in 2012 made him a top 10 pick in 2013. And if you never considered him a high potential rider, you were probably not around at that time. He was seen as an Adrien Costa level talent or better after coming 4th on Mount Baldy ahead of many of the big American names like Horner and Leipheimer in California, and then absolutely destroying Aru in the Baby Giro, putting almost a minute into him on the Terminillo. He outclimbed Leipheimer and Horner again in the Tour of Utah before moving to Sky to become the next big GT star.
Betancur is indeed the right answer! And the streak could possibly continue next year, if he can find a team.
Haha, I'm so sorry!Go on then, make a point of telling everyone else how badly I did.
Well you came 36th out of 38 in the TdF game, so neeuuughhh!
I'll remember to make it up and then some if you return to the top 10 next year!
