Title: 2017 Vuelta CQ game
Post by: Armchair Cyclist on August 12, 2017, 00:39
Here are the details, no major changes from what we have had before (and in fact this post is largely a copy.paste and edit job)

I will be away from the Thursday before the start until the following Tuesday, so will probably only have very brief opportunities, if any, to check teams submitted in the last two days or process early results.  I may not be able to warn you if you select riders who are not in the race or if your team is overbudget if it is after Thursday morning.

Team of exactly nine riders   If you pick someone who is not riding, I'll replace him with the next cheapest of his team, or the next cheapest in the race if there is not one in his team.

Budget    Budget will be 3500 points.  If you are over budget, I'll take out the cheapest rider who can be replaced with a cheaper member of his team that will bring you into budget, or the next cheapest in the race if there is not one in his team (first in alphabetical order if two or more meet that definition).

Price of riders
CQ score for 12 months to 13th August, for which the update file that CQ released on Monday 14th will be considered definitive. 
There is a dropbox spreadsheet of riders likely to participate and their prices for the game (, and a facility for checking the team total.

Submitting your team
By personal message to me, either here or at CN.
Please wait until the accurate prices are available.
Please send the team with names formatted as per CQ. (Surname[space]Forename and nothing else: Spanish/Portuguese names need particular care, as do accents or other diacritics) Please do not riders' teams and prices.  It makes an enormous difference to the efficiency of adding teams.  If you use the dropbox spreadsheet it will be a simple copy and paste job.

I have lodged my team with the first person to submit a team (Hayabusa).

The start of the race, which I believe to be Saturday 19th August at 5:30 pm  (CEST, 15:30 UTC)

Points issued according to the points tables of CQ (column GT2) (  Note there are no points issued for the young rider category.

Entries will be listed here, when and as I get a chance.  If you are on another forum, by all means plug the game there.

Good luck to all.

15 of the teams are (according to PCS) finalised, the prices are fixed, the dropbox team selector file is updated (, my team is lodged with Hatabusa: the game is fully open.

Eight teams in so far: a reminder that you have until Saturday late afternoon, but only until about 12 hours from the date stamp on this message if you want me to check your team.  I suspect I will have very little on-line time after that until Tuesday: normal updates should be available after that.   

Good luck, all.

Teams so far:
McLongan *

*: team needs adjustment, manager aware.

I haven't been able to keep the list of entries updated, but I see that they have been arriving, and getting updated resume Sanchez.

Last reminder if you have not yet entered, the race starts, and the game closes, in just under 9 hours.
