Johannessen said on IG that he abandoned due to illness, didn't mention the knee issue but who knows?
You are right.He retired
Eh, no home-run in these races. Only some decent placings and minor points in the end. Tulett finishing 6th in Jaen was good to see, hope he develops further during the year. Uijtdebroeks is 9th on the GC atm in Tour of Oman, so maybe some more points will come in there.
More races coming up, which is always good after a quite mediocre week.
Volta ao Algarve em Bicicleta
VAN WILDER Ilan
VAN UDEN Casper
Looks okay. Should score some points from this line-up.
Vuelta a Andalucia Ruta Ciclista Del Sol
GARCÍA CORTINA Iván
DE GENDT Aimé
Ouch... expectations are low for this race, when it comes to scoring points. I think it could be a fun race to watch though.
Edit: Shame with Bernal, but Sivakov in the line-up makes it more interesting for my team here.
Tour des Alpes Maritimes et du Var starts later this week, but missing a lot of names in the provisional startlist.
Dont think I will have anyone in Rwanda.
You are right.
He retired on 16/01/2023 lol. And then got suspended in february for good measure.
I could have sworn CQRanking showed a 2023 tab for him or at least with a team name underneath his name. I have had retirees in my team before so I was extra attentive to that this year.
Was about to post the same about Van Wilder. Think I've had him the past two years as well.I am starting to wonder why I did not pick Van Wilder, I had him last year and maybe 2021 as well (I can't remember...) but not sure why I suddenly decided not to take him this year and I think it was a mistake.
Pretty good week thanks to Paret-Peintre in Tour of the Alps. He's off to a good start of the season.
Not many points in Ruta del Sol and Algarve, but several riders showed some good form. Laurens De Plus is looking good, doing domestic duties and still finishing strong. I hope he get's some chances later in the season (maybe Belgiun and Benelux tour)
UAE Tour: 2nd place for Ewan, hope he get's his win and a nice confidence boost. Vine already lost time, but it's not over yet
