Thanks both - biggest race win of my manager career! Andy, finally having a period of rejuvenation after too many months of overtime, alcohol and bad food, so celebration has been repentence on the turbo trainer and then crispbread #Fit4Fjellda

Key takeaways today for me:
- Varmarcke gently floating up the Muur, hope he finally gets a big win this year
- All the big contenders being way too eager, GvA, Stybar, Vanmarcke, Naesen, Benoot attacking multiple times and then getting blindsided in the end
- Golden horny frog-award today for Tim Wellens
- I've been waiting for Valgren to properly break through in the Ardennes, that boy has a major engine
- Gatto the only one riding without arm- and legwarmers?

Not a great race to have a duel with you Partykjeppen. :)
120 managers selected Phil Gil. I didn't and finished 121st.

How many drinks tonight Partykjeppen? Have to ask since Tomas managed to miss both races today

I'm pretty sure those who enjoyed grainy footage of the Vuelta Al Tachira disagree! (me)

Koronin [Koronin] Saturday 24.Feb 18:12, 2018
I'm pretty sure those who enjoy the early Spanish races would disagree.

As for this race, I'm happy I got a top 10 in it.

I disagree goon. No point in starting any classics season when winter season is so much more fun this year :)

FIrst race of the season -> pick boring :D

Francisco [K92-Team Neverland] Saturday 24.Feb 10:46, 2018
Second time I make a quick enter here (while wife’s bathing kid) because I want to keep Lutsenko and Wellens in my team but at the same time I fear they will not be able to follow the cobble monsters...

Partykjeppen [Il Piccolo Gregari] Saturday 24.Feb 10:15, 2018
I want to be slightly adventurous with my team, but there are just so many undroppable dudes. Both in what will probably be a small group contesting the win, but also in the bigger group finishing behind them and sprinting for lesser places..

Looking with interest to see how Ganna, Pedersen and possibly also Garcia will progress on the cobbles this season.

Super hard race to predict! I need more picks :D

I assume you're talking about Haut Var a week earlier, Troy ;)

Assassin [Troy The Trader] Friday 24.Nov 10:29, 2017
Even less to proper start of season :D
