Tour de Abandon

i.ibb.co/gJPjTpR/mikel-landa-giro-ditalia-abandon-3468429.jpg

We have entered the last week of Pro Cycling Manager and obviously i have to do something fun.

Tour de Abandon is basically world's best cyclists trying to tackle 21 stages without crashing and being out of time limit. I'll post daily updates and we will see who'll win

Settings
WorldDB2019v4 - Extreme - 3.00 Crash Frequency

Route
i.ibb.co/4fF4c9y/indir-14.png

First week kicks off with a downhill stage from Fuji. Following that we have a windy stage in Turkish landscape in Konya. Hilly terrain in famous Nürburgring followed by the long Sanremo and the week finishes with a tough italian triple: Giau / Sormano / Zoncolan... As it isn't enough the weekend is in Belgium with Ronde van Vlandaaren followed by Liege Bastogne Liege.

The second week is mainly based in France. Starting with the Hell of the North. Another cobble in North France followed by Paris - Tours. A mountain double in France with very tough climbs, followed by a long time trial. A swiss stage settles the week.

i.ibb.co/PDHSHnH/indir-16.png

A deserved rest in Zürich but the pain is back as the riders will climb 3 HC climbs. Then the route heads to Spain, first in Basque Country for hilly terrain and then basically 'on top of the world' for Bola del Mundo. The race is full of surprises and the penultimate stage being a TTT basically makes it harder, as it is in doubt how many riders will be left in teams.

Startlist

The 'best' 8 riders from all World Tour Teams. Best of France/Belgium/Rest of World/Italy teams.

Stage 1 - Recap - Mount Fuji Downhill


i.ibb.co/tMV4ytb/indir-17.png

It was a hectic race with many crashes and many withdrawals..

i.ibb.co/8M8MNMd/firstabandontratnik.png

Jan Tratnik was the first one to leave the race, 5 kilometers in. Throughout the course, Gasparotto, Turgis and Ewan attacked and had a gap. There were many falls. The organizers have put only 7 minutes as the time gap.

Caleb Ewan also had a minor incident which put Gasparotto and Turgis to a sprint:

i.ibb.co/7Sj4KgJ/s2-aband.png

A windy stage on the menu for the riders as they prepare for the first flat stage of the tour.

The Stage

It was very slow out there and therefore ended in a mass sprint. An interesting exceptin but was fun nevertheless. It was Viviani who brought it home.

Stage 3 Recap - Nordschleife Nürburgring


i.ibb.co/wJSqt32/s3.png

A hilly stage with 3 kilometers averaging 7% climbed 12 times.

Stage

i.ibb.co/pKvFR9Q/s3crash.png

Early crashes meant Bizkarra and Coquard were out respectively.

i.ibb.co/12rFk9D/s3crash2.png

Another big one, twice in one downhill. That means, Dupont, Rosskopf, Caruso, Van Garderen and THE YELLOW JERSEY Anthony Turgis were all out!

Halfway the race, crashes keep coming in, Consonni was also forced to be out, followed by Carthy, De Gendt and Trentin. The crashes weren't the only reason riders were worried, its about being over time limit as well, some riders seem to be struggling to keep up with the pace.

Alaphilippe attacked in the penultimate lap, bridging it with early break members Gallopin, Madouas, Wellens Rolland. The peloton cut down to 10 riders.

i.ibb.co/K0y7M8k/s3finish.png

In the end it was Alaphilippe who won the stage ahead of Gallopin. The race was spread out to 48 groups at the time, with one hour in the time limit, who will be out of it?

Stage 4 Recap - Milano - Sanremo


i.ibb.co/1bC5Cgy/s4.png

Here we go, a long 300 kilometer race with a sprint finish expected. You never know what is going to happen now, though..

Race

Oh no! Race started slowly in the first third, downhill of Turchino was a madness: Thibaut Pinot withdrew from the race in a crash involving yellow jersey Nibali.

i.ibb.co/tLx09fq/s4crash.png

Another crash in Capo Mele, and 4 good climbers said goodbye to the race: Aru, Martinez, Oomen and Reichenbach.

i.ibb.co/q0rShvh/s4finish.png

In the end it was a sprint finish and it was Groenewegen taking the win in front of Gaviria, Degenkolb and Ewan

Thank you for the comments. I’ve done this in 2018 (the year) as well but it was just a banter with my friend. This time i decided to post it here so you guys can have a look.

Gavia will be uploaded tonight, tomorrow might sense a triple upload.
