Road Nats 2018
« on: January 01, 2018, 01:27 »
Australia and Kiwiland are on this week.

Oz -

Provisional startlists are in the roadbook but they will not shock you (check metarace.com.au for finals later in the week). They added 1.5km of flat to the RR circuit to appease Mark Renshaw or something. The crits and Sunday road races will be broadcast (geo-restricted).

    Cycling Australia has advised that due to extreme weather being forecast for the region, and in the interests of the health and wellbeing of athletes, volunteers and spectators, the day of racing on Saturday 6 January at the FedUni Road National Championships will be shortened.

    The modified schedule will see the U19 Men’s and U19 Women’s road races now run concurrently.

    2017 had two examples of this not working very well. Will the Aussies manage to avoid the same mistakes?

    Both Aus races were pretty good generally


    Happy for Malseed - she worked really hard and certainly deserved the win.  I thought she was going to be dropped by Spratt when they were off on their own, but she kept at it.



    The mens race was a good race, and I was happy that one of those who made the race actually won it rather than someone who had spent the whole race following wheels.

    As in the womens, the Michelton Scott team (Greenedge) had a large numerical advantage .... and they did use their numbers pretty well.  The Drapac team had both the main team and a development team in there, so had quite a few in numbers as well .. but it fell to BMC to do the chasing mid race as they were the majors who missed the break.   Gerro and Scottson chased it back, then abandoned along with Rohan Dennis leaving Porte alone.

    Porte did try hard - but with Caleb Ewen in the final bunch, no one really wanted to bridge to the few up front and bring him with them ... allowing Edmonson to stay away.

    all in all - nice welcome back to racing

    Tratnik will most likely bring his newly-won #champsi ITT skinsuit to Sibiu! :win

    Please, let it not be #ccc with a flag across the chest ... (hoping against hope here)

    I happened upon a couple of CCC guys out on the road last summer. We all waited together for a canal bridge and I had plenty of time to look over their gear. It is really a TV thing, I was forced to conclude, because that orange looks absolutely fine in real life. I agree about the hope for the champion's skinsuit though.

    CCC #ccc orange is not exactly camouflage but hey, cyclists need to be visible:


    (felt like a good occasion to post my own photo from last year's TTT in the world championships here in Bergen)

    I agree, it looked far less in-your-face the past four years in Sibiu. Less fluo, more dull, if that makes sense.

    But #ccc with a *si flag ... just no.

    I thought the national champs would only be next week - as usual, the weekend before the start of the Tour.
    Turns out many of them didn't move to re-align with the Tour (which is a week later this year).
