Re: World Championships 2017: Bergen, Norway!
« on: August 31, 2017, 21:46 »
As we are a pretty diverse forum with respect to which country we are from...
Can I ask you to post your teams as they become available, please? Note the plural, I know some people here aren't that bugged with their citizenship and quite supportive of different teams. Write your heart out  :D

PS: I have put teams up in the order of the races (disregarding the TTT). Copy my setup as a template if you wish...
PPS: you are allowed to highlight your favorites / captains :)

*no Norway's teams
It is not all about the captains in the men's elite road race: Our two best domestic teams, #hitec and #joker are dominant across all classes in norway's line up, and may provide the best results for Norway in this championship. Smaller teams like #coop and #tss, #unox may also play an important role. While #champeu Kristoff and Boasson Hagen both get a qualified chance at the men's elite road race, they can only win if the terrible twins of  *pl and  *sk (Kwiatkowski and #rainbow Sagan) doesn't. Norway has better chances in the men's junior's time trial (#champeu Leknessund) and men's U23 road race (#rainbow Halvorsen).
Our women can't be expected to produce similar results but Susanne Andersen is an outside bet for a podium.
