It's time for our second season review with no serious races left. It was quite unexpected but we topped our performance of last season. A record breaking 21 results of which 8 wins.
Not only the amount of results were outstanding. The team aimed to train 3 talents this season as fast as possible. What we did not foresee that it costed way over 600k. A sum that still dazzles us, but we survived. It remains to be seen if they can truly shine on high level although they form a solid base for the next generation.
Some managers seem to be into continuous fights with the OCM gods. This season it seemed like the Don was visited by several hitsquads for instance. Let's not forget the occassional offdays that swarm around like killer bees. And we all know doomed topforms don't we?
Well i decided to tempt the gods with an unorthodox approach to tours. The gods did not seem to approve the bold move to ride with 3 captains in Perm Tour. All three were stung by the killer bees, though miraculously two of them were cured the day after. Whoppa 3rd and 4th in GC. What happened at Norway Tour was the true shocker. There i deceived the gods with 1 strong captain and 1 sidekick for the YC. Obviously the captain was struck by bad luck but the youngster slipped in between. He managed to score a possibly unprecedented grand tour win with only a 7th as highest stage result. How crazy is that.
