At least you've brought two riders into the Top 25. My next best rider was Konig in 29th

Race Report Part 3/3



Tour de France

Week 3! Can we make it to the Champs Elysees in Paris?

Stage 15 was the penultimate flat rated stage, but far from flat in the profile. Miha Poljanec was able to make it into the breakaway and the break did survive. The youngster showed his inexperience by chasing the late attacks and launching his sprint too early. So only 10th on the day, but still impressive. Stage 16 was a brave ride by Matic Groselj as he actually recorded some points on a KOM. Stage 19 was the hardest mountain stage of the race and unfortunately the team suffered some casualties. Dusan Rajovic and Goran Antonijevic both finished outside the time limit.

Coming off stage 19 things looked bad for a few of Swisslion's riders on stage 20. Marin and especially Groselj found themselves alone in the mountains. Each doing their best they were both able to make the limit. Off to Paris we go! The last stage was always going to end in a sprint and the team wanted to give Lahcen Saber one last chance to shine. Poljanec even tried to surprise with a late attack in the final lap on the Champs Elysees. In the end the entire team ran out of steam from the tough mountain trek. Saber finished 7th on the stage and that netted him a final 5th in the green jersey competition.

Over what was and still is a difficult season for Swisslion. The team can walk away from this race with some pride and a sense they accomplished something. They were really part of this race and didn't just come along for the ride. Everyone here associated with the team is hoping this will give the riders and staff motivation and confidence to finish out the season strongly.

Ranking update #4 has been released for the PCT division. Well it hasn't been a spectacular period, but we have actually done solid here. Moving up one spot in the ranking is mostly down to us using more RDs than some others. The gap to our rivals has mostly remained the same as the last update. So what were our results?

Pico Basile didn't offer the points we expected, some of the CT best were there and we couldn't quite compete with them, while Cristobal wasn't really a race where we expected to score in. The big race was in Berlin. Kris Boeckmans finished 5th and Lahcen Saber 12th, which was a big result in a HC race. The biggest points windfall of the period. Another big race followed a day later in Torshavn. This time it was Stepan Kurianov who stepped up to deliver a 5th place finish with a late attack. Saber added another 12th place and both amounted to another decent points haul.

We have expectations of some good stage results from Boeckmans in the Middle East, but we couldn't really find our footing in the sprints. Two of our three climbers did alright on the final mountain stage, to at least take something back home. The 2nd of the two time-trial events, the Celtic Chrono ended up being worse than the one in Windhoek. 11th from Mottin and only 24th from Nepomnyachsniy simply was not good enough. We finished the period with two mountain classics. Tyron Giogieri took advantage of a weaker startlist to finish 5th, his best result of the year. Unfortunately Abolfazl Gilanipoor who was also among the favourites had to work for the Albanian and only finished 15th. Negating any depth result we targeted. The last was in Kenya. Eddy Beltran went there to stretch his legs, before his final part of the season in September. His legs weren't great though as he finished 13th on the day.

So all in all a decent month for the team, but we have to keep this up and we need Eddy Beltran to produce his best form in the late season hilly races!

Still sitting awkwardly close to the relegation zone which is hard to see since barely anyone could have expected Beltran to flop this badly. Really hope that your team can make the turnaround and at least stay in the division.

I suspect that Edy still has a couple of good race days left, especially Balkans has one of the best profiles for him all year long. Not sure where else he will ride but iirc San Sebastian is in the very same band so i suspect he will still have a fair bit of scoring in the remainder of the year.

So despite how close the projected ranking looks i think your team still controls its own fate. But getting additional help e.g. by Fablok barely scoring in the Tour of America would obviously make the situation ever so slightly easier for you...
A Big Thank You To All MG Reporters!

Having a stinker so far, but I reckon you should be fine in the end, it seems that the Philips stank on Saber is slowly dissipating and he may provide some biggun result towards the end.

Slowly but surely more teams are looking at a "sure" relegation, but so far Swisslion is holding on. I hope you can keep battling until the end, and manage to secure your spot in the PCT. EAB's races will be crucial indeed, it's time for him to finally redeem himself!

Well Balkans is on the menu, that's no secret really Pfft But I expect most of the best puncheurs from PT or PCT to be there and we have already seen Beltran's propensity to finish around 30th in these PTHC races. Also his mountain stat has shown to mean diddly-squat in hilly races this year. I guess the potential 8 RDs wasted will at least kill our season at the earliest possible.

Fablok have so many RDs in hand and more dependable riders that I don't even factor them as relegation candidates Wink

Whatever is on Saber is purely down to me putting him in cobbled races Rolling Eyes Unfortunately his RDs are practically spent, so no big results left I'm afraid.

Only Campari looking at "sure" relegation I think. It is all mostly down to EAB indeed. That's the scary part Sad

Race calendar - Part 4



August

04.08Macskako KerekparversenyC1
07.08Clasica San SebastianPTHC
17.08 - 21.08Arab TourHC
21.08Ronde van Het IjsselmeerC1


It's a fairly busy end of the season for us. We go to Hungary for Macskako Kerekparverseny, then to Spain for the new Clasica San Sebastian. The two more important races though are the new Arab Tour and Ronde van Het Ijsselmeer. Some last chances for our sprinters.



September

03.09 - 07.09Tour of BritainC1
04.09 - 11.09 Balkans InternationalPTHC
17.09 - 21.09Deutschland TourPTHC
25.09Tour of the BattenkillPTHC
26.09 - 29.09Tour of LithuaniaHC


We were in the Tour of Britain last year and it didn't really work for us. We have a different approach this time, hoping for some better success. Balkans International is our one true home race on the calendar. We hope we can show our best form there. The Deutschland Tour will be the first time for the team and literally the last chance for a big sprint result. Battenkill is simply a race we attend due to the PTHC band, we don't have any result expectations for the race. The Tour of Lithuania replaced the Tour of Beijing. We placed 2nd there last year, we will try to go one better this year.



October

03.10GP LuganoC1
12.10 - 15.10Bayern RundfahrtC1
18.10Giro dell'EmeliaHC


Last month of the season still has some important races for the team. GP Lugano is a hilly race we saw last year. The profile has changed a bit, we hope for the better for us. We will participate for the first time at Bayern Rundfahrt and it's the last chance for our two timetrialers to deliver some results. The season finishes in Italy at the Giro dell'Emelia. It wasn't the final race last year, but we did win it. It's a sponsor goal so we would love to win it again!

Macskako Kerekparverseny. That's a mouthful isn't it? The penultimate cobbled race of the year for the team. Not much was expected on this hilly course. As the race developed and lots of long range attacks were going up the road, Swisslion remained largely anonymous, but we found out Lahcen Saber was successfully holding his own with the other favourites. The race completely broke into pieces in the last 10 km. Saber ended up a couple groups behind the front. It was an every man for himself situation on the final cobble section and the Morrocan finished a season's best 12th on the day. The first cobbled race of the year, that the team walks away from it content with what they achieved.
