Starting a new thread about these two upcoming races, I will bow out and delete this thread if we wish to continue on the other. Mainly this thread exists to highlight Craddock's upcoming stage/over all win at Ruta del Sol.

I didn't realize how many transfers occurred in the off season - but Martinez, Higuita and Roglic all at Bora is wild. Also Ide Schelling to Astana huh?

Algarve is on the road with my bus full of poor choices.

Ruta del Sol is milling about smartly until Stage 2 hoping the Guarda Civil can suppress those unruly farmers.

If there was so much thought put into my selections that removing one stage might tilt the mix, I would be thankful VG is still open for roster updates. As it is, eh.

Don't cry for me, Andalucia.
The truth is, now just a time trial.
All those wild farmers, their mad existence

Wow. Yes he did!!

Checking the splits here, Sheffield lost less than 5 sec in the first split (start to T1) with the hill, and even beat Evenepoel by a few hundredths in the final segment (T2 to Finish). He bled a bit in the middle to the world champ, but darn, great result.

Del Toro. I picked the young bull and got the horns. Among other poor fringe pics.

Well done diphthong or whoever won.

Congratulations, diphthong . Cream of the crap by FAR and a commendable top 15% in the GenPop.

I thought I might had wrangled a first to worst performance here but semroc embraced the suck vigorously and snatched defeaterer from the jaws of defeat. He had the brown jersey locked up from the grand depart and impressed with a bottom 2% overall, even with Remco. Chapeau.
