Daniel Jaramillo managed to join the early breakaway for us.

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2017/Races/HC/StradeBianche/SB-001.jpg

They got caught in the final 15 kilometers though after a good ride. Afterwards the team failed to position themselves properly for the final sprint. Like that, Mohoric & Quevedo could only sprint for minor positions off-camera in Siena, while Fl√ľgel won the race for Kraftwerk.

Positive Surprise: Daniel Jaramillo - A nice ride to show our colours in the breakaway of the day.

Negative Surprise: Captain Positioning - Looking at who finished in the Top10 there was so much more possible for our double force.

With huge ambitions we went into the Kazakh classic. After catching the break however, we couldn't prevent a group of favourites from breaking away on the last lap. We chased them down till the end, but it was no coming back.

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2017/Races/C1/Almaty/Almaty-009.jpg

While those favourites sprinted for victory, Isostar could only battle for minor placements. A bummer already, evenmore when Kump was pushede off the wheels of his teammate, so that the men in lime couldn't organize a proper train. Under that aspect the result is kind of reasonable at the end, though missing the Top 10 with 6 riders in the Top 26 is a critical disappointment

Positive Surprise: Train effort - The idea behind the race was perfect. And the train looked rather strong for a great depth result.

Negative Surprise: Marko Kump - He could neither mark the opponence when they attacked nor stay with the train. A horrible day for our captain, failing massively on his win campaign.

For our first full PT appearance we sent our strongest team possible with the goal to upset the favourites. And we should why we are called the "young, lime and free". The team managed to position themselves decently for the final climb, where nothing less than 4 riders climber into the Top20. Perfect racing especially by Mohoric and Mugerli, who both even managed to finish in the Top10.

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2017/Races/PT/Classique%20G-D/GD%2023.jpg

We overachieved our goals here by quite a margin, what a race!

Manager's satisfaction rate: 9.5/10

Positive Surprise: Matej - Both young Matej and old Matej managed to break into the top 10. Rumour has it that especially old Matej found some Strava magic on the road, both making it an outstanding result for the team.

Negative Surprise: -

Stage 1: The first stage should've been one for us, with one of our number of hilly sprinters here. Instead, nobody was even close to finish at the front of the pack, not even speaking of the 8 riders that finished ahead of it. Quevedo down in a crash and injured again.

Stage 2: A pure sprinter stage where we were led by Mansilla. It didn't work out as expected, he couldn't sprint properly and even finished behind GC captain Mohoric.

Stage 3: A pure drag race of puncheurs on the final climb to Ustran. Our only puncheur in the mix was young Matej, finishing 15th 2 minutes behind the winner.

Stage 4: Another sprint stage, but one lonely breakaway survivor spoiled the party. Again we neither attacked nor contended in the final sprint properly.

18Luis Miguel MansillaIsostar - Adriatics.t.


Stage 5: The next puncheurs stage to Jelenia Gora brought another opportunity to climb in the GC. Again a mid-range attack did the trick, this time for Sanchez, Netia superstar. Mohoric finished 12th climbing up the ladder, still third U23 and now 12th GC.

3Chris FroomeFablok - Bank BGZs.t.

Stage 6: In Bukowina Tatranska the final puncheurs festival should take place. But again the breakaway took it away. In the pack Mohoric had his best day, finished with the best in 11th and promoting to 2nd in the youth competition.

It didn't change anything in terms of the GC, where we finished 9th with Mohoric according to the expectations.

9Matej MohoricIsostar - Adriatics.t.
10Carlos BetancourtMinionss.t.


Loosing the U25 competition as well as no back-up points from the GC and no breakaway appearance at all made this race a really bad one though.

Goal: Stage Win, Youth Classification, Top10, Top 15, Top 25 --> failed

Points scored: 62 (Mohoric 62)

Manager's satisfaction rate: 2.5/10

Positive Surprise: Matej Mohoric - One rider saved our race alone, by finishing well up the GC. Only downside is his close miss to Yates in the U25 classification.

Negative Surprise: Supporting Cast - 0 points in a race where you get points until the Top50 and a perfectöy made stage for us is just not acceptable from Mansilla, Navardauskas, Bazhkou and Quevedo (crashing on the first stage though). Potocki and Bostner weren't expected to score, but could've found some better placing as well, at least in breakaway attempts.

March offers the option to take some of the missed points back. Highlights surely should be Kumps opportunity at Tropicale, the wilcard at De Ronde and the opportunities for Brajkovic in Switzerland and France.

It's an easy plan: All for Kump. Leadouts are there for every type of stage, especially stage 2 and 3 should be perfectly fitting for our Slovenian star. A stage win there is anticipated, and from then on it's defending the GC.

Goal: Stage Win, Top 3 Points Classification, Top 3 GC

Again Brajkovic will get his chances to lead the squad. With a great supporting cast for the TTT the base should be set, and the final ITT should fit both him and Brändle very well. While Brajkovic can hopefully keep up with the best climbers, the Austrian TT champ needs to try and hang on for as long as possible, especially on the hilly stage. Potocki could even have a shot on the young riders jersey in Austria.

Our second wildcard race, and this time we are even more of an outsider. At Grand-Duche we surprised all with our best season performance, and this time we'll try to repeat that. Depending on how the race is raced, both Kump and Polanc could have a scratch at the Top10 if PCM treats them well. Whether that will happen is questionable though, and our duo will try to answer that positively.

We are sending the same squad as in Vlaanderen, only changing one rider. Does that mean success in PTHC? Doubtable. Captain Kump is taking a rest for later tasks, while Polanc leads the team. The opponence will stay strong, while at the same time we miss the hills on this cobbled classic. A top 20 is the realistic goal, but it will be a tough race for us most likely.

The third time we see former winner Brajkovic and Brändle together in action, and the third time it's because of a stage racer. We are focussing on the ITT that comes ahead of the mountain stage to predetermine a GC order, that our riders will try to protect up the classic mountain stage. A Top 10 has to be the goal.

Goal: Top 10, Top 20, Stage Top 5, Youth Classification Top 3

Nice updates. Gives a good read.

Viano was of course very disappointing but taking home two top 7 finishers as well as two more top twenty guys is at least somewhat decent in a rather unpredictable race.

Almaty was a desaster, Bianchi a bit disapponting and a top ten in Pologne okayish imo.


You still have lots of races in March left Shock
A Big Thank You To All MG And ICL Reporters!
And To All Who Organize Something On Daily As Well!

You achieved your Amissa goals, how quick! Grin

A lot of the rest of the month relies on Brajkovich, will be interesting to see how he holds up. Smile Also, that RVV participation will be fun to see! Smile

@knockout: thank you for your comment - nice to receive some recognition for the hours of work put into the HQ. I share your analysis on the races, though I see Viana a lot more critical than you Wink

@trek: But quicker then Robots in a sprint? Pfft Yeah Brajko needs some big time legs to make it a good month for us. Vintage time.

Polanc as our leader was the man to protect for our reduced team. While Giaux suffered crash issues, the others guided him as long as possible, so that he managed to be in the right group for the final sprint.

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2017/Races/HC/Herning/Herning-014.jpg

With 300 meters to go he looked very good in around 5th position.

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2017/Races/HC/Herning/Herning-017.jpg

However, at the end Polanc faded far down, to even just miss out on our targetted Top10 here.

Positive Surprise: Jan Polanc - He did well to hang on for long, leading in a good position for the final sprint. With 300 meters less it would've been a great performance by him, now it's bittersweet.

Negative Surprise: Support - In a starlist lacking depth it is vital to score the minor points. Our (reduced) supporting cast even failed to place any rider besides our captain in the Top50, which hurt us quite a lot.

With better support, Polanc would probably have secured a better result at Herning. Might have been doing too much work early on. March has started off much better for you than February and hopefully the momentum continues.

Free Rider Mathias Brändle found himself in the breakaway of 4, which later went up to 8.

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2017/Races/HC/Qatar%20Oil/QOM%202.jpg

But the size of the breakaway constantly changed, as due to the enormous pace the race was on a full rampage anyway. Brajkovic had some problems early on with Duarte, both made it back a couple of times but constantly suffered due to the chase they had to do.

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2017/Races/HC/Qatar%20Oil/QOM%207.jpg

Brändle got dropped from the break with 55 kilometers to go. Together with Alizadeh the Austrian fell behind and got taken in by the group.

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2017/Races/HC/Qatar%20Oil/QOM%2018.jpg

At the end he lost some vital positions on the final kilometers, though still managed to finish 16th, by far our best result for the day.

Positive Surprise: Mathias Brändle - A perfect scenario to for once have one of our riders in the break. And Brändle did a great job there, until he cracked on the final 55 kilometers. Not the best of performances from the break, but being in there saved us from a desaster.

Negative Surprise: Janez Brajkovic - Our veteran never had the legs in a race where he should've been able to fight for a Top 10 in a scenario like this. He almost got beaten by freakin Jaramillo. Potocki in 53rd also a candidate for this.

Everything set up for a deep GC run for Marko Kump. Arguably we offer the most versatile leadout of all teams here.

Stage 1: The team set up Kump perfectly on the wheel of Erik Mohs.

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2017/Races/C1/ltab/ltab1-8.jpg

He accelerates on the slightly uphill last kilometer, streams past Mohs and into the yellow jersey winning stage one!

3Maxime VantommeNetia - Vónins.t.


Stage 2: We worked hard for the bumpy stage that approximately should fit us the best. That means we caught the break together with Ferrero, even dropping Mohs in the process. That led into a position where Jans and Mansilla were in the perfect place to lead out Kump.

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2017/Races/C1/ltab/ltab2-7.jpg

Kump however faced technical issues, dropping from Mansillas wheel. Most likely a slipped gear, but he lost his momentum under the flamme rouge.

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2017/Races/C1/ltab/ltab2-10.jpg

He tried everything to come back, but was too late to prevent van Asbroeck from winning the stage. Instead he achieved a podium at least finishing third.

Stage 3: The second punchy sprint stage, time for a revenge for Kump. However, this time he went too early, almost a copy of Mezgec last year.

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2017/Races/C1/ltab/ltab3-12.jpg

He gets passed towards the line and has to settle for a disappointing 6th.

Stage 4: A flat stage, and again the breakaway is caught in time. Kump with his first positioning issues, picking Nelsons wheel which proved to be the wrong one. He couldn't turn the necessary speed on the flat, not able to pass enough riders to climb higher than 6th again.

Stage 5: Another calm one, surprisingly the breakaway couldn't get any opportunities. Fablok dominating the leadout, with Kump in the slipstream of Vantomme.

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2017/Races/C1/ltab/ltab5-8.jpg

He grabbed the opportunity pretty early, going aggressive and streaming past his opponence.

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2017/Races/C1/ltab/ltab5-10.jpg

Head to head with Guerao they battled it out for the stage win.

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2017/Races/C1/ltab/ltab5-12.jpg

And eventhough also Vantomme came up strong late, our Slovenian yellow jersey managed to win the stage in an awesome manner, also grabbing back green too tired to celebrate.

Stage 6: The final stage was about to defend green and yellow. Thus we didn't mind the breakaway being successful this time, leaving most of the bonifications on the road.

Kump sprinted from the front for minor places (9th+), to secure green.

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2017/Races/C1/ltab/ltab6-10.jpg

He failed, going too early and only coming in 7th, missing out on green.

Negative Surprise: Sprint Communication - On both hilly sprints we could've used better communication, to transform our great preperation into results.

Fantastic performance from the team right when you needed the points. March is going quite well for you. Should see you comfortably climb back into the top 10 Smile

Yes indeed, we really needed that one from Kump. Half of his season is over after Tropicale, with the best races for him having taken place already. Now the gamble part comes, and hopefully we gambled well enough.

The full punchy squad led by Mohoric & Quevedo attempts to prove themselves strong in our first PTHC outing.

Stage 1: In the opening TTT we managed to show our colours well and finished 9th, finishing with 3 NCs of Brändle, Bazhkou and Navardauskas.

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2017/Races/PTHC/Pais%20Vasco/PVS1%2029.jpg

However, we managed to drop both of our captains though, not the smartest of moves.

Stage 2: The first hilly stage, but no action from us. we were only visable in a big crash involving Mohoric. Our best riders didn't even scratch the Top 30, being part of an anonymous race in the peloton far behind the best.

Stage 3: Quevedo, clearly injured, struggeling early on the next stage. Mohoric instead grabs his heart with his hands and attacks with 35 to go.

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2017/Races/PTHC/Pais%20Vasco/PVS3%2012.jpg

He's setting quite a pace in the attack, but in the end it wasn't to be.

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2017/Races/PTHC/Pais%20Vasco/PVS3%2016.jpg

Mohoric even loses 4 minutes on the final hill, finishing together with Navardauskas. However, this performance was still enough to bring him into white (5 seconds over Watson), now sitting 26th GC with Navardauskas in 18th.

Stage 4: Back to normal business on Stage 4. A hilly stage, where the peloton split up into two parts. All our riders in the second one loosing some time, but no contenders for white could stream passed Mohoric, who defended white before the ITT.

Stage 5: Brändle's day should've been the ITT. While he looked great on his bike, he never was up to the challenge and finished far down the order in 19th.

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2017/Races/PTHC/Pais%20Vasco/PVS5%2011.jpg

Even worse day for Mohoric, who finished a couple of seconds behind Watson, meaning that he lost his jersey by a spare couple of tenths of a second.

Stage 6: The final hilly stage saw us in the attack for the first time, and it was Matej Mugerli to go there. He even won a couple of KOM sprints on his way.

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2017/Races/PTHC/Pais%20Vasco/PVS6%207.jpg

Despite some great efforts they got picked up right before the finishing hill though.

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2017/Races/PTHC/Pais%20Vasco/PVS6%2011.jpg

There Mohoric sadly couldn't attack Watson anymore, so that he had to settle for 2nd in the youth classification. Navardauskas sadly lost his Top 20 having a horrible final day, moving down the order. Mugerli though could sneak inside the Top 8 of the Mountains Classification, taking away some points as 6th. Bostner the painful 101st.

Points scored: 62 (Mohoric 32, Mugerli 11, Navardauskas 8, Quevedo 7, Bazhkou 2, Brändle 2)

Manager's satisfaction rate: 3/10

Positive Surprise: Almost decent approaches - We had some smart moves. Mugerli in the break on the last stage, Navardauskas trying to hang on to a solid GC, Mohoric to concentrate on white. It could've worked out, sadly all of our riders had that couple of sloppy stages that prevented us from scoring decent.

Negative Surprise: Aggressiveness - If both of your leaders fall behind on stage 1 already, you assume that your team should attack hard. They didn't even try.

Janez Brajkovic sees himself leading the Team in one of our rare C1 Mountain appearances. His strength in climbing together with decent Hills and Chrono abilities should give him a shot on the Top 5.

Stage 1: The opening TTT didn't look too good at the beginning. Our team shined in a beautiful snapshot however.

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2017/Races/C1/romandie/MG17_romandie_1_001.jpg

And at the end of the day we could make up for a lot of time lost, having a strong unit together. Brändle, Brajkovic, Bazhkou, Navardauskas and Potocki finished together in 4th, unluckily just outside the podium. However, our captains look well set for the race.

Stage 2: A totally flat stage where we decided to focus only on keeping our leaders save. We did with all in the first part of the first group, having Navardauskas as our best finisher in 11th. As the two persons ahead of him lost time, Potocki takes over white.

Stage 3: Another flat one, another one not to talk about normally. But Navardauskas tried to mix it in, closing a gap before the final sprint to be in a decent position.

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2017/Races/C1/romandie/MG17_romandie_3_007.jpg

Closing this took too much of his energy thogh, meaning that he couldn't make the Top 10 again.

Stage 4: Now the party is getting started. The hard hilly stage before the mountain screamer. While 3 Top-Favourites marched away, white jersey Potocki set up a crucial chase for Brajkovic, limitting the losses of the second group all by himself.

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2017/Races/C1/romandie/MG17_romandie_4_006.jpg

On the descent for the final climb then it was Brajkovic to attack this group together with Roglic and van den Broeck.

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2017/Races/C1/romandie/MG17_romandie_4_010.jpg

While Roche won it up ahead, Brajkovic led in the second group 1'38 down.

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2017/Races/C1/romandie/MG17_romandie_4_015.jpg

And even better, Potocki crowned his awesome race with a 7th place leading the next group in, 3'02 down.

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2017/Races/C1/romandie/MG17_romandie_4_016.jpg

Stage 5: The queen's stage, a mountains festival. And climbers that previously lost loads of time went in the attack. Sadly not Brändle though.

The race completely blew up with attacks from Marquez, Talansky Barguil and Sicard, and Potocki was dropped more earlier than later. He would loose his GC ambitions, but manage to hold on to white later on.

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2017/Races/C1/romandie/MG17_romandie_5_020.jpg

Brajkovic led a successful chase, the realed some riders icluding Sicard back in.

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2017/Races/C1/romandie/MG17_romandie_5_012.jpg

Together they chased on the final kiometers, but couldn't prevent Barguil from a famous ride to overtake Jani for the podium. Our captain came in with the main race protagonists, making him stay in 4th as Roche lost crucial time.

Stage 6: The final short ITT was one for our team. Brajkovic needed to defend 4th, and Brändle was a major candidate for the stage win. The austrian champ set the first great time.

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2017/Races/C1/romandie/MG17_romandie_6_001.jpg

At the end Cornu though was slightly faster, setting Brändle down to 2nd of the day. Brajkovic also found a decent turn of speed, securing 4th as 11th of the day.

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2017/Races/C1/romandie/MG17_romandie_6_006.jpg

Bazhkou rounded of the day very well in 5th, while we celebrated Pavel Potocki as the best young rider of the race.

Sadly Brändle as 31st just missed out on the points spots. Potocki in 18th is decent, though it could've been much more without stage 5 difficulties. Brajkovic finished where to expect him, slightly above par but with smarter control of Barguil and more help of other teams a podium was in sight.

Potocki comfortably won the youth classification. Sadly in the Teams Classification we missed out on our leading position after stage 4 with our Stage 5 problems.

Points scored: 99 (Brajkovic 62, Potocki 22, Brändle 12, Bazhkou 3)

Manager's satisfaction rate: 6/10

Positive Surprise: Pavel Potocki - After a difficult season so far he had one hell of a ride on Stage 4, being almost the strongest of the entire race and pulling Brajkovic to a great result to then finish notably himself.

Negative Surprise: Brändles climbing form - He just looses too much time on the climbs right now, has to need to work on it in an altitude camp maybe. Could/should have scored far better.

Sadly we wrote a very anonymous second wildcard race. We could neither manage to compete in the breakaway, nor find the right groups with either Kump or Polanc, our double captains. The biggest issue for us seemed to be that De Rounda was nowhere near as hilly as it used to be. Hence our captains couldn't use its strengths on the uphill terrain properly. They finished in a group far down, while on the front van Avermaet unsuccessfully challenge Sam Bewley for another monument win.

Positive Surprise: Consistency - 6 riders finishing one of the toughest monument is quite an achievement for young Isostar

Negative Surprise: Aggressiveness - Our biggest goal, a breakaway appearance, was unsuccessful. We would've wished for some showing of our beautiful colours.
