Not too bad. Yes, i actually picked Simmons because i saw he was entered in a race almost every week. Even as a youngster i thought there might be points. Hopefully he is learning a lot for the second half.My team scored points this past week with Simmons, Paret-Peintre, Asgreen, Jorgenson (if seventh in a TTT actually nets points), Steimle (same situation as Jorgenson, except DQS got second), Higuita, and Hodeg.
This week, I have two riders starting in the Algarve (Pöstleberger and Arndt), five in Andalucia (Molenaar, Mas, Vanhoucke, McNulty, and “just race him everywhere” Simmons), and one at the Faune-Ardèche Classic (Paret-Peintre).
Ciccone should be good in UAE Tour, and if he does well you might already be up 50% on him.Early in the season but not loving my team. Mostly because I didn't have the guts to pick Evenepoel or Pogacar. They might rule this game. Also missed on Bagioli. I didn;t even consider him. I had him last year and didn;t really see this coming. I should have known when DQT picked him up. All I need is to have Ciccone (unique pick) win every race he enters this year (one for one) and I have a shot. Good start but we'll see how he goes when racing with Nibali.
Good point, there's no way they can survive those finishes (I assumed the first stage would be flattish).I would check the profiles if I were you
Thanks, appreciate the news. Hopefully he can hit the grouns running.He's been training on Tenerife together with Tiesj Benoot. Both of them down to ride Het Nieuwsblad.
Alright then. Now we know.Next weeks Tour de Algarve will be very interesting for this game.
It will give us the first indication whether the game will be won by one of the 26 players who went for Evenepoel.
If it will be, you could become my main opponent.
If Evenepoel fails to live up to the hype, it's game over for both of us.
I know we all love to over-analyze early races in this game but let’s not bury a guy after a mediocre day in mid-February especially when he has spent almost all of the last decade as a world class rider. I mean it’s still so early in the season that Ben Swift is outclimbing Geraint Thomas, I wouldn't worry too much yet.Kwiatkovski is a bust
To overanalyze something you need to analyze first...I know we all love to over-analyze early races in this game but let’s not bury a guy after a mediocre day in mid-February especially when he has spent almost all of the last decade as a world class rider. I mean it’s still so early in the season that Ben Swift is outclimbing Geraint Thomas, I wouldn't worry too much yet.
With that being said please let me overanalyze Almeida’s and Evenpoel’s ride in peace
