[PCT '18] Philips | NC Update
Jakstar22
Amazing jersey for Lotto! I'm glad that you guys seem to be taking care of him!! Will be following him as he was always a great rider for my team!!

@jandal: I think you underestimate the 'fight' in my punchers! A repeat of last season's Wyss heroics would do nicely.

Got a fine team yourself, I must say! I think it's quite certain we'd be competing in every terrain this season. Should be fun Grin

@roturn: Maybe because we needed the money more? Pfft

@Jakstar: Yeah he'll be looking great in the peloton, that's for sure. Hopefully, he can contribute well for the team.

Such a strong team, Saber and Henao are awesome riders, but then you've got strength most the way down your roster, amazing to do that straight out of PCT, will be great to see how you end up, should be high! Smile

Thanks Smile Not exactly sure how high we'll be able to finish, and a lot will depend on planning I guess. Although, I do like my own team too!

Looking forward to lining up alongside your team soon Grin

Season Goals
"The Future in Motion"
We stuck to our strategy of spreading the goals around different terrains, something that had worked well for us last season. Having missed out on our top two transfer targets, we're thankful that we went down this path instead of putting all our eggs in one basket. The following is a look into our goals for the 2018 season.

Tour de Pologne - Win
pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2018/profiles/hc_pologne.jpg
The compulsory Lutsenko goal! Like everyone else, the Kazakh puncheur was our top transfer target this off-season but that plan went out the window a couple of hours in. As such, the responsibility will fall on our lead puncheur to try to pull a surprise result out of the bag. If it happens, even we'll be surprised!

Berlin Pro Race - Top 5
pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2018/profiles/hc_berlin.jpg
Our sprinters have something to aim at as we target a high result in one of our sponsor's countries. The choice for setting a goal on flat terrain was between this race and another home race at Veenendaal but we were not confident whether we would get to ride the latter because of band preferences.

Kenya Mountain Classic - Top 5
pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2018/profiles/hc_kenya.jpg
The third goal on the third terrain. Our mountain train will be up for the challenge as we climb the high slopes in the Kenyan wilderness.

Volta a Portugal - Top 10
pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2018/profiles/pthc_portugal.jpg
Mountains were the only terrain where we did not have a goal last year and so we've compensated and gone for two this time around. This race will need more than just climbing prowess to tame but we do feel that we have the riders to achieve this goal. This is also our only PTHC goal, with the other three goals in HC races.

PCT Standings - Top 10
Just like last year, we came into our first season of the PCT with the target of establishing ourselves in the division before aiming for promotion. It worked well last season, as we built an all-round team who were able to achieve direct promotion. Although we have more or less met our transfer goals, we still believe that Top 10 is the realistic finishing position that we're looking at. Achieving that would give us an excellent platform to launch a promotion challenge next season.

Volta a Portugal... Rui Costa someone? Smile

Would be quite cool to see him in his home race and obviously, he's a great fit there, imo. Will be interesting to meet you there on the road. Don't bring your best game, mate Pfft

@tsmoha: Would be great if we can send Costa to lead his home race in his last year at full strength. Still have to work how our puncheurs will share leadership, and how that will affect Henao's planning, but Costa getting us our goal in this race would be extra special Grin

@Vien: Or everyone else could be crying in 'the Kazakh puncheur's' dust all season Wink

Spreading out the goals over multiple terrains is something i used to do as well whenever i started in a new division and it looks like a good decision for you Smile

A Big Thank You To All MG And ICL Reporters!
And To All Who Organize Something On Daily As Well!

Yeah this definitely helps us as the goals in the non-Lutsenko terrains look much more achievable now. The plan was to target three terrains anyway, and luckily we're able to get leaders for that.

*Races in bold are goal races.

Our Thoughts
It was a huge step up from deciding the CT calendar this time last season to making sense of the PCT calendar for this season. 19 more races to compete in, two new race bands to consider (we had not even considered HC races as a possibility last season), and countless possible race clashes to navigate; finalizing our calendar was an experience in itself.

The big news to report from recent days is our acceptance into Giro d'Italia as a wildcard team. We hope we can justify their decision and believe we can send a competitive team to Italy in April to make best use of the opportunity.

Our season starts with the first outing in a HC race, all the way out in Australia for the Down Under Classic. On the same day, we will also be represented in Cuba for the San Cristobal Classic, a race which got our season underway last year as well. January is a month of one-day races, with three in total, but business picks up in February and we have a busy schedule all the way up to June with two-thirds of our calendar covered in those five months.

Our goal races are skewed towards the second half of the season. February sees us chasing our only win goal of the season in the Tour de Pologne, but it's a wait till May for the next goal race, the Berlin ProRace. After that, goals come every alternate month with the Kenya Mountain Classic in July and Volta a Portugal in September.

This being our second season, makes things like logistics and support easier, and we're looking forward to our globe-trotting adventures while travelling to different races. The volume of clashing races are a very new experience this time around, as we had to deal with only three of them last season. Our final verdict on the calendar would be that we've made a couple of mistakes having picked certain races without having looked at how feasible it would be for us to be competitive there. However, things look manageable despite this and we should be competitive in most races we turn up to.

Leader Planning
It was so much easier to our leaders in the CT!

We have had our race planning verified and approved by the MGUCI and they've given us the go-ahead to reveal it to the MG universe. Race planning in PCT was way harder than we expected, with multiple revisions necessary before we could finalize our riders' schedules. Unlike last year, where we basically had every leader go to every race expected of them, there are a couple of surprises this time around.

The following, in order of terrains, is where our primary and secondary leaders will start in the coming season.

Our Thoughts
Our first priority while planning for the season was to send competitive squads to our goal races. Rui Costa leads us is Pologne with Navardauskas and the other Costa in support. Unsurprisingly, we will have the full sprinting arsenal at the Berlin ProRace, with Krieger and Te Brake both in support of Saber. Henao is our designated leader in the Kenya Mountain Classic, with Pantano, Mai, Ruijgh and Poels all starting and forming our mountain train. Finally, it is the fairy-tale story of Rui Costa leading us in the Volta a Portugal, in the last year at his peak. He will have the support of Dieteren and Ruijgh in this race.

We are leaving no stone unturned in our quest to make a good impression at the Giro d'Italia, for which we've received a wildcard. Our GC hopes will be led by Henao, ably supported by Pantano and Poels on the climbs, and the latter also in the TTT. Rui Costa will lead the charge on the hills with support from Navardauskas, both of whom will also form a key part of our TTT train to keep us in GC contention after that stage. Saber is our leader for the sprints and he'll have Krieger as his primary lead-out along with Navardauskas as the first man in the train. Per will also ride this race, mostly as a candidate for breaks, and also as the fifth man in our TTT train. This chance to ride the Giro is also our way of rewarding the youngster for his outstanding season with us last year.

Other notable races that we are targeting this season are the Hilly TT tours of Vuelta al Pais Vasco, Scandinavia Open Road Race, Jelajah SKL, Tour of South Africa and Tour of Britain, both of which will be lead by Rui Costa with a host of hills and TT support tagging along. Navardauskas will also be present in most of these races, and is a contender for a high GC spot in the lower category ones. We are also hoping for a good result at the Cheshire Cycling Tour, with Saber's combination of sprints and cobbles prowess suiting the course to a large extent. Most of the flat classics have both Krieger and Te Brake supporting Saber, and while he's not the fastest in the peloton by any stretch of the imagination, we hope he can be consistent with top 10s and the occasional over-performance.

We have high hopes from Henao in all the races he attends, but are particularly looking at his home race, the Vuelta a Colombia, and Clasique Pico Basile, in addition to our goal race in Kenya, as ones where he excels, mostly because of the absence of hills or TTs in those races. Tour of Japan is an interesting experiment where we've looked the Mountain TT and hoped that it provide enough of an advantage to Henao to make up for his losses in the two hilly stages.

We have also picked our C2 races as ones where we can be competitive, with Dieteren leading in San Cristobal Classic and Copa Placci and Pantano leading in Sakartvelo Trophy. Another important race that the latter will lead is the Tour of East Java, while the former will have leadership duties in quite a few races, including PTHC outings like Strade Bianche and Balkans International.

Like we've mentioned before, our planning is not the best it could've been, and we could've better chosen our C1 races, but we've done the best we could with what we picked. There are many races where certain riders have had to be assigned because of the unavailability of others more suitable for the terrains. It's not ideal and it's not what they signed up for, but that's how it goes sometimes.

Now it's time to wait for the racing.

First Grand Tour Adventure - Giro d'Italia Lineups Announced

Philips - Continental have been granted a wildcard to ride in the Giro d'Italia this season. This is a huge moment for us a one year old team and an opportunity we are not taking lightly. We would like to thank the MGUCI for this opportunity.

The team management takes this opportunity to announce our line-up for the first Grand Tour of the year in Italy.

Stage Profiles

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2018/profiles/ptm_giro2.jpg
pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2018/profiles/ptm_giro3.jpg


Lineup
Rider Role
Sergio Henao GC Leader
Jarlinson Pantano Super Domestique
Lahcen Saber Sprint Leader
Alexander Krieger Leadout
Rui Costa Puncheur/Time Trial
Ramunas Navardauskas All-Rounder
Wout Poels Domestique
David Per Free Role
The management wanted to make sure that we did not go to this race just to make up the numbers. We have selected a team to be competitive in the GC as well as to showcase our diversity.

Sergio Henao will look to recapture last year's form which saw him finish fourth in this race, once again as a member of a wildcard team. Looking at some of the names that have already been announced, finishing so high looks unlikely but we are still hopeful of a Top 10 showing.

Lahcen Saber, supported mainly by Krieger in the sprints, will not be a top contender but we hope for a couple of Top 10 finishes from him.

Rui Costa will target the three hilly stages and hopefully try to get into the breaks in the second and third week.

Ramunas Navardausakas will be an important figure, as he leads our TTT team, will support Saber in the sprints and will help get Costa into good positions on the hilly stages. He will also have a job of keeping Henao safe on the flats, playing the role of our road captain.

Jarlinson Pantano is assigned with the task of being the last man helping Henao on the climbs.

Alexander Krieger will be the chief leadout of Saber, if at all we are able to get a sprint train organized.

Wout Poels will act both as a climbing domestique for Henao and as an important part of our Team Time Trial setup.

David Per lives the Grand Tour dreams at the very nascent stage of his cycling career and will have free role on most stages. His most important role will perhaps be as the fifth man in our Team Time Trial line-up to keep Henao in GC contention into the second week.

Really nice to see Krieger having a GT this season. Not that he is doing to do anything with Saber not getting a leadout most likely.

But still very nice. That`s a nice squad with a potential top5-7 rider and good support. Costa might have a good first half even.
 
AbhishekLFC
@jandal: Thanks! Hope to create some chaos among the WT elite at least Pfft

@roturn: Thanks again Smile Yeah not really expecting Saber to get a lead out but still one can always hope. We had to have at least one German in our first GT team. Hoping for Costa to take advantage of possible low punchers turnout. Also interested to see how Nava and Per go.

January Preview
"The Future in Motion"


Clasico San Cristobal
pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2018/profiles/c2_sancristobal.jpg
Startlist
Rider Role
Jan Dieteren Leader
Jaoa Costa Domestique
Rob Ruijgh Domestique
Patrick Muller Domestique
Lennard Hofstede Domestique
Jonas Bokeloh Domestique
Piet Allegaert Domestique
Riccardo Minali Domestique
Tactics
Jan Dieteren leads us in our first race of the season, and his first race in Philips colours. In a change from his co-leader status from last season, Jaoa Costa will be his chief domestqiue, with Ruijgh and Muller as backup. The rest of the team is here for the experience which will hopefully help them in the future. We don't expect fireworks from this race, but a solid opening showing would be good.
Expectation: Top 15
Watch Out For: Patrick Muller


Down Under Classic
pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2018/profiles/hc_duc.jpg
Startlist
Rider Role
Lahcen Saber Sprint Leader
Remco Te Brake Leadout
Alexander Krieger Leadout
David Per Pace Setter
Ronan Van Zandbeek Pace Setter
Wout Poels Free Role
Ha Jeon Jung Free Role
Tactics
Saber, another debutante on our team, leads the other race we are scheduled to start on the first day of the season. Much like San Cristobal, we are not getting our hopes too high for this one and would just like to see Saber up there at the end fighting for a Top 5 finish. A Top 10 is a more realistic hope however.
Expectation: Top 10
Watch Out For: David Per


Clasique Pico Basile
pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2018/profiles/c1_picobasile.jpg
Startlist
Rider Role
Sergio Henao Leader
Jarlinson Pantano Super-Domestique
Cristoph Mai Domestique
Rob Ruijgh Domestique
Wout Poels Domestique
Patrick Muller Free Role
Lennard Hofstede Domestique
Piet Allegaert Domestique
Tactics
Our final race of January is one where we actually go in with high hopes. Sergio Henao leads us for the very first time this season, and just like every other time he'll do so, the expectations from him is high. This is a course that should suit him, with the shorter climbs too early on in the piece to be decisive. His climbing prowess should help him power away from most of his rivals on the long final climb to the finish. Our whole mountain train will start in support of their leader to try to take control of the race in the final slope and put Henao into a good position to be in the fight for the win.
Expectation: Top 5
Watch Out For: Jarlinson Pantano


The excitement is palpable as we approach the start of the 2018 ManGame season. Our expectations for the opening day are moderate, but we do have a progressively higher expectation of results as the month progresses. We hope the hard work in the off-season bears fruit and look forward to an enjoyable season.

It's show time folks Cool

With Pluchkin and Uran confirmed not to be racing Pico Basile, i think Henao has a golden chance of winning a race there. Also, it should be the first of many duels between Henao and Kudus Grin
