The FSA DS submission deadline has handed, however the taking part in is nearly to start out
Whew! I don’t learn about you however because the one answering password requests and different emails, I’m actually glad we now have the entry deadline behind us and might begin the enjoyable of truly taking part in the 2023 FSA Directeur Sportif! Use this thread to inform us about your squad. I’ll edit it in a bit so as to add within the stats, though you might beat me to it in feedback.
My crew has 4 fundamental options:
- I needed to take Remco once more as my GC man. I can’t say no to the man, for no matter purpose, and anyway he did so proper by me final yr. Certain, he’s no Pogs, however he’s form of Valverdean in that he’s tremendous dependable for scoring factors. Very excessive ground, assuming he stays off it.
- I needed to take Mathieu van der Poel, as a result of he’s merely my favourite rider and he dropped out of the double restricted zone this yr attributable to some again bother whereas we had been doing the pricing. He’s high-quality for now, though nonetheless working along with his docs to unravel the continued problem. Fingers crossed.
- I took 5 Individuals — all the massive names besides Sepp Kuss. I simply actually like all of them — Powless, Jorgenson, McNulty, Simmons and Sheffield. I do know for positive I’m going to be rooting for them, so it would as effectively profit me. [Yes, I have moved on from Simmons’ politics.] As my crew title says, I’m So Bored With the USA (however What Can I Do?).
- Lastly, I predict Jonathan Milan shall be a very powerful younger rider this yr. Johnny Milan appears like a superhero, and he seems like one on the observe too. I’m all in! [Or he will waste his time doing track, but whatever.]
On the ladies’s facet I simply piled on a bunch of Dutch athletes round my new fave Silvia Persico. Staff deal with is the Ongoing Dutch Hegemony, which for older members right here you’ll recall me happening and on about how Dutch males had been about to take over the game within the aughts. [And Lars Boom would become President of the Netherlands.] Nicely, it didn’t occur fairly to that dramatic extent, however on the ladies’s facet, the dominance is getting out of hand. So why combat it?
OK, what’s your squad about? Any themes, predictions or methods you’re prepared to share? Do you might have each males’s and ladies’s? Does your crew title want explaining? We all know you’ve been dying to share, now’s the time!
