The first season:
To buy, to sell, to train, to do everything without thinking why.
The second season:
To build a team, to go for results, points and money.
The third season:
Now it is time to look to the future, to build up a young team, with talents and train them each for the skills which are good for the later function of the rider. Later on in the season I must go looking for a real good captain, but that will not be easy.
At the moment I have 15 riders, may be, if I have money enough there will be come some more.
This is it for the moment.
"Where are the nominees for 'The Eleonor Berka Trophy' for Best Downhiller? Has anybody see them? Look there in the distance, oh my ... what's that, holy ... a speedboat passes really close by a rowing boat with the nominees."
We are going to our reporter somewhere on the water. "Hello, what happened, have you some information about the downhillers?" "Yes, they are alive, no real damage to the rowing boat, no contact between the boats, only a real big wave, o wait, problems, a lot of water in the boat, what now."
The manager of Jonte Seger call him and says, the boat is to heavy, do something, the others hear that and look to each other, bye bye Jonte (4th).
The boat still sinking, what now, the three survivors go to fight to survive, Shimon Samuels loses his balance, see you later Shimon (3rd).
More and more water in the rowing boat, Sandy and Jan looks to each other, and in a second Sandy makes a decision, Sandy takes a paddle of Jan and pull and push, it works, Jan Stuyck (2nd).
Finally Sandy Bousquet goes as fast as possible to take his award before the boat sinks, mission accomplished.
"Where are the nominees for 'The Sterling Dorsher Trophy' for Best Climber? Has anybody see them? Reporter do you see the climbers, we do not know where they are, the award ceremony is beginning?"
"Yes, a while ago they passed our boat, we shall go after them, I shall report what I see. In the distance I see several boats, that must be the climbing nominees."
There is the first one, it is Kholadeth Ammouayphone with his slowboat. It was a good season for him, with 4 wins, among which 2 stage wins in the Norway Tour. (4th)
A bit before him we see David Engalychev with a wikingerschiff, that must be the boat of his manager. Also a good season for him, 2 division one wins, in total 15 top 9's in division one. (3rd)
Then we see nothing, o yes, a lot before the other 2 boats. Next one is Bengt Dahlström with his kayak. 6 results for him, 2 wins (Devil´s Tour of Tasmania, Picos de Asturias), all in division one. (2nd)
In front is Todd McVanblarcom with his canoe. A great season for him with a nice classic win, Alpe d`Huez Classic, 4th in another classic ( Zürich-Bern-Zürich), another division one race win, in total 6 division one results (+ WT-A win and CoN result), good for an award.
Cut down your team to 9 riders including 2 jobbers. Release all 35+guys. Do not train leadouts! Focus on buying or training one good captain and start from there.
