[CT19] Tryg - Season Evaluation
liefwarrior
Tryg Insurance Cycling Team


i.imgur.com/QiQT9JA.png


Following their earlier application to the MGUCI Tryg Insurance Cycling Team has been granted a place in the next season's Continental Tour competition. The focus of the project will be on ensuring the growth of Denmark's next generation of cyclists, with many new MGUCI prospects in the sights of team manager liefwarrior.

Generally, the advent of a new team sees a flurry of activity in the transfer window as the signing of an entire squad takes place. Unfortunately, Tryg's failure to find significant sponsorship outside of the TryghedsGruppen will limit the budget available to construct the squad, as such Tryg might find it difficult to compete for the stars necessary for instantaneous success. Instead the team's sponsor has decided to look to the future, with a three season deal currently in place.

As a part of these restrictions, the team has opted for complete cycling novice liefwarrior as their team manager. Not only lacking any previous managerial experience, even in series outside the MGUCI, liefwarrior doesn't come from a cycling background. The sponsors hope that his inexperience will quickly be overcome as he grows with the team. For his first season in charge Tryg have opted to focus on regional competition, with results expected in competitions in Germany and Scandinavia.

Welcome to the ManGame and good luck with the coming season!

The future of Danish cycling looks really bright right now, so this will be a very exciting project to follow. I'd expect you to have some competition in the transfer market from NENT and Carlsberg, but there should be lots of nice talents to choose from both this year and the next, so looking forward to see what you'll come up with Smile

Thanks. I have a feeling I'm going to need to come into the transfer window with my elbows up, but here's hoping I just don't screw up too badly.

Well I'd be lying if I didn't have a tab with your own HQ open the entire time I was designing this, trying to make it even half as impressive. Looking forward to getting stuck into ManGame with you guys.

Welcome to the Scandinavian market. Should be plenty of riders for us all even though it will probably be a tough battle for the top talents. Would love to see other teams than my own sign a Finnish rider, by now there's more domestiques than I can sign.

Speaking of experience you should probably be ready to soften you're budgetary restrictions during transfer season though.

That is quite the jersey! You've got a really good structure already on the HQ and a lot of potential in the whole scandinavian market (as others have mentioned) so there's every reason to believe you can be successful, good luck!

Rumour Mill #1 - Pre-Window Shortlist


With the MGUCI Transfer Window opening in only a short few days it only stands to reason that the buzz emanating from the Tryg Cycling headquarters has been picked up by a couple of resourceful journalists. Although nothing official has been announced, this is what the media have managed to suss out.

Employees have been spotted scouting out the upcoming season's cobbled terrains, which they believe to be the most open in the Continental Tour. The more astute among you will notice that all of the strong domestic cobble riders are currently held under contract. The biggest prospect Mads Pedersen is riding for Netia-Vonin, hilly classics rider Christopher Juul-Jensen is at Carlsberg - Danske Bank alongside sprinter Thomas Vedel Kvist, while Sebastian Lander rides for Farfetch Pro Cycling. Instead it may well be that the list of free agents is the place to look, with world class cyclist Alexander Kristoff looking like a prime target; however with competition for his signature likely to be fierce, alternatives such as Christopher Laporte and Ricardo Ferreira. Once they've secured a strong rider for the next seasons cobbles, the team shall likely look to the future, and once more the domestic scene appears relatively weak; as such it is unlikely to prioritised.

The obvious signing that any new team needs to make is their flagship GC rider, and it would appear that Tryg have already highlighted one specific cyclist for this position: Magnus Cort Nielsen. Sources have indicated that the management does not believe that Cort Nielsen won't see significant interest from outside the domestic scene, and thus are hoping to acquire him for a decent wage, but they are willing to spend a significant amount of their budget on the young climber. Compared to the cobbles, the regional scene appears to have a plethora of young talent, with the likes of Jonas Vingegaard, Lennard Kamna, and Tobias Foss all available on the scene.

Other talents that Tryg is pushing to sign include the puncheur Mikkel Honore, climber Georg Zimmermann, as well as sprinters Max Kanter, Niklas Larsen, and Casper Pedersen.

Thank you! I might say that your misfortune is my fortune, in that it has put a couple more Scandinavians on the market, but that might be a tad rude. Just hoping you won't be targeting the Danes as well.

I might've hoped to be the only one joining you in our little domestic scene, but alas it was not to be. It's going to be tricky to build a squad for sure, but hopefully we'll be able to work for the betterment of Danish cycling.

Tryg Transfer Centre

First Signing


A day of jubilant celebration at the Tryg Cycling HQ as they confirmed their first signing of the season earlier this morning. Although much had not gone to plan, with competition for their targets much tougher than expected, and at least one inexperienced scout negotiating a deal far higher than the team had hoped to pay. In spite of this, Tryg have secured the services of a rider that they hope will grow into a leader for the team, introducing:

i.imgur.com/5ne7Awe.png


Just as Honore is Tryg Cycling's first rider, Tryg Cycling is Honore's first professional team, as he arrives a neo-pro from the Danish amateur scene. Scouts have noted that he operates well on a variety of terrains, but that he seems to prefer either an uphill finish or a cobbled section, preferably both. As it stands, his development will tend towards the former, as the team aims to mold him into a high-class puncheur.

Further Talent Acquisition


Having secured their first rider yesterday, this morning has seen the addition of another two talents on year long contracts. The pair had been highlighted early on as potential signings, and mean that the majority of this years domestic talent pool will be riding in Tryg's colours. Thus Tryg Cycling is proud to announce:

i.imgur.com/mtyPcQd.png


The two are young neo-pros aged just 22 and 23 respectively, and are reportedly very excited to be joining the squad. Neither are the strongest riders as of current, and not known for pushing into breakaways, so expect a quiet year from them. Larsen has potential development routes as either a time-trialist or a sprinter, with the coaching staff focusing on the latter. Vingegaard is a strong climber, but it is uncertain if he will be developed into a more well-rounded rider or if his training will remain focused on the mountains.

General Classification Leader Confirmed


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2018/Races/GTM/Vuelta/VAE-14-006.jpg
On his way to seventh in Stage 14 of the 2018 Vuelta a Espana


The first big signing in the teams history is that of Magnus Cort Nielsen from free agency. He joins Tryg following the disbandment of RBC Pro Cycling Team, for which he had ridden in the 2018 editions of Vuelta a Espana and Giro d'Italia. He had been a superdomestique for Phinney in the former, before riding for himself in the latter, managing 31st and 21st in the General Classification respectively. Cort Nielsen is also incredibly young, just 26 years old, and scored second places in the U25 classifications of the two Grand Tours he attended last year. The machine that is Herkoltz defeated him in La Vuelta, while he was beaten by Lecuisinier in the Giro. This is the pedigree that he brings with him to the Continental Tour, where he will hope for strong results after his sometimes disappointing appearance at the top level of cycling.

Cort Nielsen:
"I'm glad to be riding for a Danish outfit for the first time in my career, and as their flagship rider I intend to forge a fruitful long-term partnership with strong results this season."

Star Cobbler Purchased

Sprinting to the finish in Gent-Wevelgem


Another big signing for Tryg Cycling, as they secure their second leader for the upcoming season. Hailing from Belgium is cobbled specialist Nikolas Maes, who joins us from newly promoted outfit Indosat Ooredoo - ANZ on a deal worth €350,000. Having done well on the cobbles in last season's PCT, Maes has now stepped down to a lower level of competition, so the management is looking to see him push those Top 10 finishes into Top 5s.

Nikolas Maes
"I'm grateful for another opportunity to ride at the front of the peloton, and I will be working towards some victories in this latter part of my career."

Big Spend on Sprinter

During the 2017 Deutschland Tour, there at the back


The latest signing by Tryg Cycling have left many in the Danish media scratching their heads. Why on earth would a team focused on national development sign a mediocre 28 year old from Japan, much less spend a rumoured €200,000 to do so? It has been theorised that it is a result of the GM's failure to acquire a suitable scout for sprinters had meant he was unaware of hometown favourites such as Thomas Vedel Kvist, who is rumoured to be leaving Carlsberg - Danske Bank, or the PT star, Alexander Kristoff. Tryg Cycling has so far denied this speculation, and asserted that they believe in the talents of Genki Yamamoto, claiming that his domestique role has prevented him from attaining the results he is capable of. After a false start in 2012, Yamamoto returned to professional cycling in 2014 as a domestic for (the then called) Meiji-Cannondale. He would ride for the team for the next five years; his only notable results coming in the 2017 Deutschland Tour, where he managed three points finishes, including a 9th place in Stage 5, pictured above. Aside from this, Yamamoto has primarily ridden as a domestique, occasionally taking part in a lead out train for other sprinters.

Genki Yamamoto
"For most of my career I have ridden for other riders, been an important part of others' success. The Deutschland Tour gave people a glimpse of what I can do when I ride for myself, and now, here at Tryg, I'm looking to solidify myself as a sprinter in my own right."

Deutsche Expansion


In entering cycling, Tryg where not only looking to expand their general profile, but more significantly in Germany. As such, it is important for the sponsors desires that at least some German talents ride in their colours, and several potential prospects were identified by the scouting team. Their signatures now secured, the team is proud to announce Max Kanter and Georg Zimmerman as part of the squad. Tryg will be the first professional team for both of these riders, and joining them will be a third young German: Jannik Steimle, who joins the squad on loan from Team Puma - SAP. We are grateful to have been granted the privilege of hosting him in his first season of professional cycling. We intend to have Kanter develop into a sprinter, while Zimmerman will grow into a world class climber. In addition the Germans, the team has picked up another Dane: Casper Pedersen.

Punching Pedigree


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2018/Races/C2HC/benelux/MG18_benelux_5_006.jpg
His stage-winning attack during the 2018 Benelux Challenge


In the first few days of transfers the team had managed to secure a leader on three of the four terrains. Danish mountains, Belgian cobbles, Japanese sprints, leaving only the hills untouched. The team had asked about, looking at various riders from other professional squads, before landing on Daniel Hoelgaard. Hoelgaard had ridden for Team Cerveceria Costa Rica in last seasons Continental Tour, amassing an impressive number of results despite playing second fiddle to Dylan Teuns. As Cerveceria chose to pull out of cycling at the end of 2018, Hoelgaard was left without a contract, and despite competition from several others, Hoelgaard decided that a return to Scandinavia was on the cards. Although he is strongest on short, sharp, slopes, Hoelgaard also has decent capabilities on more gradual inclines, and even the flat. Despite his only mediocre physical abilities, Hoelgaard makes up for it with a better than average attacking skill. This comes together in a rider who is capable of scoring a handful of Top 10s in the Continental Tour. In fact, last season he pushed Teuns to 19th in the Continental Tour Individual Standings, while himself scoring 35th, meaning he is already a proven force at this level of competition.

Daniel Hoelgaard
"It was fun to have a year based in Costa Rica, but I missed the the weather up here. Coming to Tryg Cycling will allow me more time in Norway, and it'll be good to race for a Scandinavian team again."

Foreign Imports


As the number of available domestic talents began to dry up, Tryg talent scouts began to head further afield, searching for young riders in other nations who were looking to secure a professional contract. They encountered two such riders in Norman Vahtra and Didier Munyaneza, from nearby Estonia and the distant Rwanda, respectively. Vahtra was a stagiare for Generali during the 2018 season, and rode at two professional events, Macskako Kerekparverseny and Rund um Koln, failing to make any impact in either. Vahtra also rode in the Tour de l'Avenir and the U23 World Championships, meaning he already possesses some experience riding in MGUCI events. Munyaneza has only been brought on as a stagiare, and will be fighting to earn himself a full-time contract in the few events he will attend throughout the coming season.

His singular televised appearance in the Stage 8 of the Tour de France


Talents aren't the only ones being acquired from overseas, on the final day of the transfer window a more experienced rider came to an agreement with Tryg Cycling. Hailing from the South American nation of Chile, and riding in the Pro Tour for Hugo Boss throughout 2018, Wolfgang Burmann will be in Tryg colours in the coming season. Burmann is strongest in the mountains, riding as a domestique for Jose Alacorn in last seasons stage races, including the Tour de France. Only scraping in at domestique level in the PT, Burmann will be asked to fulfill rather similar roles, this time riding for Cort Nielsen.

Wolfgang Burmann:
"With the dissolution of Hugo Boss, I was left without a contract. Towards the end of the window I was worried I wasn't going to have anywhere to ride this season, but now I have the fortune to have found a team which isn't that distant from my last home."
