  2018-05-18 23:35:
  another 5pts, another session.
  2018-05-19 09:37:
  another 5pts, another session.
  2018-05-19 23:00:
  Another 5pts, still not avmaxed What is this sorcery?
  2018-05-21 15:06:

  Lute is a dud, good call

Byttingvik at 21:42 10/2-2017
  In other news, Malecki got 2nd in Trofeu de Transalpina today! I possibly made a mistake captaining him instead of Lute, but I weighted impact of profile's CL7 more than HL3/FR4.

  I wondered what happened to the potato farm :)
