Review Season 42

Written by Cyclists at 12:29 25/11-2017

  It was quite a strange season. While the greatest goal (scoring with Alfons in Topform) didn't really work out, we did win though a fourth trophy in VCK Classic, the second time Bohdan does it, so that's of course great. The rest of the season was pretty good, but there's not much to say about it. However, we finally managed to end up in Zyte Division at the end of the season again, so that's great. Let's hope we can keep this going in the next season.
  About the NT, it all began great. Winning CoN with a big advantage over the other countries was great, but afterwards, the results started to get worse. Only in the last race (Oslo Grand Prix) we lost the first position to Italy, which had a fabulous last part of the season. A bit of a disappointment of course, but, we now have something to aim for in the next season!

   Goals and Future Plans Season 42:
  Maybe the biggest goal of all in this coming season is winning the World Tour. Now I have won the CoN and came in second in the World Tour, I cannot be content with anything else than winning the World Tour!
  Looking at our own team, the biggest goals will be at the beginning of the season. Ainet - Bruggen will be a target for Henk Houtman: we can now finally participate in this classic. Close after, Rupert Bacilieri will be given a first try in Volta ao Porto, the one tour he is made for. Very curious to see what he is able to do here. For the rest, we hope to find a new HL-captain to train, because Bohdan is slowly getting older.
