The joyful glee and instinct not to scupper our own personal teams, err, vast knowledge and experience of the VR collective delivered a team that amassed a mighty 11249 points to sparkle in 103rd place (there's time to move up yet) overall. Not to mention the heady heights of THIS

There's a few categories I would change and a few I think that wouldn't be that missed if we could think of a decent alternative.

• Rename "The Sex Symbol" back to it's original title "The Pretty Boy"

Some picks had quite limited fields to select from so I would amend them slightly.

• Lose the East Asian bit from the Sponsor's Pick (or lose this category entirely)
• The Scandi instead of The Dane
• Not that many brothers in cycling, so I would extend it to "The Family Connection" ie. someone who's brother/sister/parent/grandparent is (or was) seriously involved in cycling

Ones we could lose if we had to? Mascot, Clown and the three specialists (America, France and Italy)?

New Categories?

• "Who?" Ideally someone you have never heard of before, but more realistically someone you might have heard of but couldn't tell us anything about
• "Close, But No Cigar" A rider who came very close to victory in 2017 multiple times, but couldn't get to the top step ie. someone from this list (http://forum.cyclingnews.com/viewtopic.php?p=2208542#p2208542)
• "Belgian Continental Dominator" ie. the next Baptiste Planckaert or Timothy Dupont (and rides for a Belgian CT team obv)
• "Sleeping With The Enemy" A rider from a team you don't like

Mentioned in dispatches on the final 2017 CQ update  :cool

(http://i68.tinypic.com/2mijvk.jpg)

The Sponsor's pick (East Asian) finishing off the season in style

Leadbelly has some ideas for the 2018 categories..

The Dane ----> The Scandi (I can live with this ;p)
The Sex Symbol ---> The Pretty One (it's a matter of words, still sort of the same in my head  :-x)

I like the sound of Close but no Cigar and Sleeping with the Enemy

UPDATE

Now that Archieboy's application has been ratified we are at  lucky for some

(http://img10.glitterfy.com/graphics/100/13.gif)

With JSGs single pick (which will be plastic doll related) that leaves us with 2.66 of a cyclist each. I'm certain the Maths will be less complicated.

I think if we give until until Sun 26th to sign up that should still give us enough time to pick/choose/bicker.

In the meantime

Leadbelly came up with some great suggestions (http://velorooms.com/index.php?topic=8809.0;message=2235751) earlier which I've subbed into the list below

Categories in red are where I've made the change already (the power has gone to my HEAD ;p)
The ones in italics are ones that make sense to me, but are up for discussion (see I'm not a total despot)
The ones in bold are suggestions we might like to think about. Possible replacements could be

Mr. Breakaway (or The Baroudeur).

I still like the idea of "Who?". It's genesis came in the Tour of Turkey when, despite the fact that I think I know a bit about cyclists, I was left scratching my head about who the hell Thomas Deruette was when he got in a break.
Title: Re: Collective CQ Team 2018
Post by: LukasCPH on November 25, 2017, 14:14
I'm in of course. And I'll try to figure out a new category to still bring in Rujano
The Chavista politician? :P


Stupid computer, failing me at the most important time of the year, the Collective CQ Team pick season! :angry
But now I am back in old strength.

If we scrap the 'national' categories (Italy one-dayers, Coupe de France, Americas), it would feel weird to me to replace them with a.o. the "Belgian Continental Dominator".
"Who?" is a great category (bonus points if the pick has a PhD). :D
"The Baroudeur"/"Mr. Breakaway" is an equally great idea.
The "Americas specialist" isn't necessarily from one single nation - in fact, many Aussies or Kiwis have seen their greatest success in the Western hemisphere. So I think this one could stay in.

How about then just "The Continental Dominator"? The 2018 version of Jensen or Cerny or Britton or whoever, that will rack up the points at the CT level.

Similarly another category that is rather limiting is "The Random Russian". Unless you take the category literally, there are only going to be a handful of good Russian picks. "The Random Eastern European" instead?

The categories listed in Italics are changes for this year.  When the number of participants is set, categories will allocated at random and the whole darn choosing circus can begin tomorrow - look out for the post.

One final ask this morning. Does anyone know an easy way to get the CQ values onto a handy spreadsheet???
 1. let's hope I get the maths right - never my strong point  :angel

Just so I get this clear in my head. The rider has to ride for Continental team? ie not just dominate races that take place in a geographic area. This would exclude a lot of  PC / WT riders on French / Belgian teams where they ride a lot of races on their national calendar. More of a problem for PC than WT perhaps

You got the maths right! :win

If we get two more entrants, everyone will get two picks and thus be special (except for JSG, who is already special) - so go forth and find players, one and all! ;)

Post by: Not My Circus on November 27, 2017, 06:55
Here we go ....

We have 14 people. JSG requires only one pick (yep he's THAT GOOD) so 6 of us will get 3 picks and the rest will get 2.

You get 24 hrs to get your pick in or I will get your pick and then there will be more Danes and Pretty Boys  #fairwarning  :P
Hopefully this will ZIP along like Roglic up Mount Fløyen or we're going to still be here when the champagne pops on New Year's Eve.

First up the lucky, lucky 6 people who get 3 picks are *drumroll please*

Search, Joelsim, Armchair, Flo, Carlo, and Lukas.

You have been chosen at random by Jarvis Cocker at the Bingo Hall the other night https://twitter.com/LaureJames/status/934703108181188608

Listed below are the 33 categories. We have 7500 CQ points to spend, which equates to somewhere around 230 points / pick on average. not that such budgetry restraints ever stopped anybody before  ;)

 I stole JSG's csv list from last year and also his instructions. After you go if you could do the maths add the name of the rider how many points and how many we have left , copy the csv file below and fill in between the ,, and the total left to spend at the bottom.

And finally, the order generated by RANDOM

Madame Random has given Joelsim 'sleeping with the enemy' *crosses Elissonde off my list*. But she has awarded me Pretty Boy - JSG let me know if you wish to switch :P

Does anybody want to pick "the drugs cheat"?
If you do, I'll happily swap that one for ... well, just about anything.

Also, clarifying question on the "Fall from Grace (WT->Conti)": Does he have to have fallen from grace this transfer season (i.e., WT in 2017, Conti in 2018), or is it enough if he had a WT contract once and has never raced higher than Conti ever since?

Will Harry ever come back. Feel sure I read an article saying he's had surgery for a long standing problem and the future was uncertain. (or maybe I mis - remember)

I suspect that some of you were really hoping for No 25, The Scandi; I certainly wasn't.

Happy to swap that one.

When we swap, is it the category or the picker who changes order in the list?  So if Midge took me up on swapping the Scandi for her "Who?", would I do 2 picks in a row at 11 and 12, or would the 11th member of the team be Midge selecting a Scandanavian?

(not that I am asking for that as my swap...)

maybe in 2019 he said, as far as I can remember. He needs a break to recover from his injuries.

and well Lukas, this category is almost the same as the one you just gifted away. Plenty of good names. Rebellin, Mancebo, Schumacher... ;)

Pretty Boy (providing JSG does not wish to have the ideal Plastic Doll category ;p) and Scandi... it's like all my Birthday's at once .

Happy to swap who for a scandi...though in full disclosure mode my Who, would have been a scandi anyway... so net result of swap is one less Scandi... errr

I'll take "(Doctor) Who" off you for the "Fall from Grace" - and I promise that I will consider unknown Scandis. :D

Tempting, very tempting... but Armchair has first refusal on Who.

Why anyone would wish to swap Scandi is beyond my understanding though, so many good ones to choose #happymidge

Just realised I got so excited about Scandinavian swaps I didn't answer the second part of the question. The categories are static, it's the picker who changes, so if we switched Who for Scandi, you would indeed pick a rider for #11 and #12 one after the other.

Do I, or don't I? That was the question for me.
"Young GC rider" - it spells Egan Bernal, doesn't it. He did great in 2017, and stepped up from #androni to #sky for 2018. He will almost certainly stand on a GT podium in the coming years.

But will it be in 2018 already? I have my doubts.
Therefore, without further ado, I place my confidence in The Silver Fox' ability to pick The Next Big Latinamerican Thing.

Drumroll for ... *cr Kevin Rivera! :win
May he win the Sibiu Cycling Tour and half a dozen other stage races in 2018 before moving on to world domination.

And JSG picks Barbie, of course.

Midge, Carlo wants pick no. 8 and gives me pick no. 19 instead. :)

For me, "young" is a flexible category. It shouldn't be Kiryienka, of course ... but it doesn't have to be an U23 rider, either.
U25 and/or in his first couple[1] of years as a pro would have been my talent pool to choose from - with a younger rider being preferred if all other things are equal.

#22   The Sponsors Pick ??????????.......I dont understand

As I understand it, a rider on team at the behest of a sponsor - the most obvious examples would be on account on their nationality but it could be other reasons.
Title: Re: Collective CQ Team 2018
Post by: Armchair Cyclist on November 29, 2017, 17:20
#22   The Sponsors Pick ??????????.......I dont understand

I would read it as someone whose signing was at least eased by some factor pleasing to the sponsor: probably nationality, but possibly a well known interest in laminate flooring, or a name shared by an actor in a drama broadcast by a certain UK satellite TV channel...

Name a Spaniard at Movistar, a Belgian at Lotto Soudal, a Brit at Sky etc etc and you'll probably get away with it.

#11 Who? "Someone you have never hard of before or more likely you might have head of but couldn't tell us about." Very difficult to be aware that someone you have never heard of is likely to have a good year.  But I looked through new signings at ProConti teams, and spotted Bardiani recruit CARBONI Giovanni (28 points) who had reaped over a hundred points the previous year without breaking into my personal awareness: I guess I didn't watch Tour of Turkey very assiduously in 2016, and 'enjoyed' the theme music without watching the Tour of Azerbaijan. 

One can only hope that, in the custom of Sandy Marry, David Stream, Dan Brown and Michael Snow, he will come to be known to us as John Coals.


#12  The Baroudeur/Mr Breakaway  By definition, riders who take on the role of sacrificial lambs don't often get great finishes, so it is going to be a low stake punt: SMUKULIS Gatis

We're approaching the halfway mark and it's time for more maths!  So far the average spend per rider is 296 points. There's 4140 points left in the kitty and 18 categories left to spend them on (allowing for the 19th nil points) = 230/rider. Veto tally is at ZERO  :o

Another two zero pointers I can see are Parra and Burton. Spookily enough, just like Bos, neither have competed in a UCI race since 2015.

#22   The Sponsors Pick ??????????.......I dont understand
I'll give you some examples:
*pl Tomasz Marczynski is at #lotto because co-sponsor Soudal is big on the Polish market.
*tw Sergio Tu got a ride with #dsu for 2018 because the bike sponsor Giant is from Taiwan (and because he raced in Denmark where several of the team staff come from).
*jp Yukiya Arashiro, *tw Feng Chun-Kai & *cn Wang Meiyin are with #bahrain because Merida wanted some Asians.
*ca Hugo Houle was hired by #astana for 2018 because their bike sponsor Argon 18 is Canadian.
Probably all the Italians on #androni are linked to one or several of the five trillion minor sponsors that Savio has.
*ch Tom Bohli, Kilian Frankiny & Danilo Wyss probably wouldn't be at #bmc if they weren't Swiss and therefore from the same country as team sugardaddy Andy Rihs.
The *es Spaniards at #cofidis are on that team because they're from Spain, a key market for Cofidis.
The presence of *co Betancur, *ec Carapaz or *ar Sepulveda at #movistar is at least partly explainable by the fact that Latin America is a huge market for Movistar.
*cz Stybar & Vakoc might not be at #quickstep if the team wasn't bankrolled by a Czech billionaire.
*za Dougall, Gibbons, J. Janse van Rensburg, Thomson, van Zyl, Venter, Dlamini, *er Debesay & Gebreigzabhier would have a hard time getting a WT at another team than #didata.
*se Kim Magnusson is from Sweden - the same country as new #efd title sponsor & team owner EF Education First and kit manufacturer POC.
*de Mathis, Politt, R. Zabel, even Tony Martin & Marcel Kittel were interesting for #katusha mostly because there is a German co-sponsor, Alpecin.
*it Enrico Battaglin got onto #jumbo in part because the bike sponsor Bianchi is Italian.
At #novonordisk you only get a contract if you're a diabetic; and most of the team's riders wouldn't have gotten a contract anywhere else.
*it Moscon, Puccio, Rosa & Leonardo Basso are at #sky because the team is partly funded by Sky Italia who therefore demand that the team has a few Italian riders.
The same is (partly) true for *it Alafaci, Felline, Nizzolo, Brambilla & Conci at #trek - here it's Segafredo who want Italians.
*ma Anass Ait el Abdia & *ae Yousif Mirza Banihammad wouldn't have been hired by #uae if they weren't from Arab countries.

There will be more examples. But you can safely pick any of those I named (and who haven't been picked already).

I know I'm on shaky-ish ground with Avila as a climber and there are a couple of other 50/50 ones, but if we allow picks which are the complete opposite of the category, we might as well just forget them and just pick whoever we like.

According to my garbled memory, Joel can accept the veto and pick a different rider - or put Superman Lopez to a vote of the plenum.

We have a Veto in play for Joel's pick of Miguel Angel Lopez as his 'Sleeping With The Enemy' choice to the grounds of his tweeting some sort liking for the men in turquoise (remembered by Midge, evidence of said tweet provided by Leadbelly)

I have rechecked the 'rules wot I wrote' at the beginning of this and it defines the category as a rider from a team you dislike .

Joel has provided a very firm rebuttal of the claim that I for one accept,

About that ... does the rider have to have fallen directly from WT grace to Conti mediocrity, or is a year (or several) of ProConti cliff-hanging acceptable (as long as he's stayed at Conti since he got there on his downward trajectory)?
Title: Re: Collective CQ Team 2018
Post by: LukasCPH on December 05, 2017, 22:17
Has a rider who's stepped back from the glitz of the WorldTour to the bread-and-no-butter of Continental racing really 'fallen from grace'? Some have, such as Francisco Mancebo who's now been plying his trade at various Conti outfits for almost a decade.
Others found their natural level of competition and carved out an occasionally very successful niche, such as Oscar Pujol, the best Spanish climber on the Asia Tour.

And then there are those who only made the step down this off-season, with the future still ... in the future.
Including my pick: With his new team, he should be in a prime position to win about a dozen sprints in lower-category races. Maybe. Or maybe not. But I'll cross fingers and toes.

Welcome to the pride of Algeria, Youcef Reguigui!

Unless of course you don't spend the budget, in which case I'll change my category to 'The 23 point rider'.

Is it just me, or do we have a potentially very decent team there, despite our self imposed handicap of adhering (tenuously at times) to these categories?

There is quite a bit of overlap between this and the team that is gradually forming itself in my spreadsheet.

Edit: Joelsim PMed to say that Nizzolo's price was incorrectly posted.  Now changed, so the excess funds we have to consider doing something with are down to 29.  Luckily the error didn't push the total cost to over 7500

Edit edit: Liepins' price also corrected, so 37 points available for consideration.

Thank you for the Math and the Nizzolo correction Armchair #phew we had 6 points in hand.

The only possibility might be that in the window between the last update (31st Dec) and the Aussie Nats a subranking search of the current year will reflect their new teams and not their 2017 ones, but I don't know if it will or not, that may only kick in for the update after.
