  Right, he would need a max at AV48 at least. Which is quite a gamble : p

Squiffinator at 02:22 22/11-2016
  I've had some fantastic talents... I believe Brunton was a talent as was Stockford. But I think there was a period where they were too good and that has been adjusted. Not had much recently for a while until Grover. @Fissa - with a high average, your guy is pretty nice! Of course, any rider without a high average is crap! :(

lastplace1414 at 23:29 21/11-2016
  I used to get very good talent results, then the well went dry, I left the game and came back it has been a mixed group. Had a solid sprinter which I sold, a few forgettable one, then Garcia, easily the best I've ever gotten.

Fissa at 22:57 21/11-2016
  Interesting indeed. Yesterday, I pulled the only valuable talent since I play this game. Not as good as yours but still much than the trash I had once a month

  @Pekac: hell yeah!
  @Squiffy: praps. Maybe a secret aspect of the last update?

Squiffinator at 20:48 21/11-2016
  Talents maybe are improving, I picked this guy up last week. I wonder if there is correlation between the talent potentials and what you trained recently? I've been just training HL and SP as of late.

PEKAC B at 14:55 21/11-2016
  With this name and potential, he must be relative of Cedric Garcia ;-)

Anonymous Cycling Project at 13:53 21/11-2016
  With his name he could be an American who moved to England...

lastplace1414 at 11:22 21/11-2016
  Yeah, if the RNG is truly random, in theory I would have gene the same rider except with our flag. Maybe I'll switch back for a bit. In my previous prime I had 4 stars on the NT (Jeremy Murphy, Edward Simon, Ron Sherman, and Giovanni Faulk) plus a few optional teammates.

Cokol Breakaway Team at 07:19 21/11-2016
  Shame he is not flying American colors...

lastplace1414 at 05:10 21/11-2016
  I decided to set to international in the hope of getting some rare countries so I could get the national championship jerseys. I currently have the only rider from Sierra Leone, and also rocking the colors of Bahrain and Papua New Guinea. I'm hoping Samper can earn his stripes the hard way. Still not maxed.

Squiffinator at 05:04 21/11-2016
  Very nice! But why are you pulling from England?
