6th this month, partly due to his very valuable unique pick of Vuillermoz, extends Ludwigzgz' lead even further, and MCMountain gets close to the podium.  ItalianGigolo overtaking Black Bandit is the highest change in place, and Ingsve has a 3 place rise to get into the top ten at Leadbelly's expense.  Top scorer Cyivel gets the biggest rise of the month (7 places) and Mutschi and Fauniera share the igmony of the biggest drops (6 spots).

    Year 3 Month 4 To 1st May

    It could be said that when you do less well one year than the previous, that you are no longer emerging.  It seems unlikely that this crop if riders is as good as it will ever be, but the points haul in the main classics month was less impressive than it was 12 months ago.  The star of the month is the same as in April 2015, and because of the same races.

    ALAPHILIPPE Julian   262points    35 teams (2nd in Fleche, 6th in Amstel Gold, 8th in Brabantse Pijl
    VALGREN ANDERSEN Michael   180   13 (2nd in Amstel Gold, 14th in Liege)
    VAKOC Petr   150   6 (Win in Brabantse Pijl)
    KONRAD Patrick   129   5 (GC 5th in Giro del Trentino, 15th in LBL)
    LATOUR Pierre   104   4 (14th in Pais Vasco, 12th in Romandie)
    HANSEN JESPER   93   2
    BONIFAZIO Niccolo   90   4

    Ludwigzgz was 4th this month, his margin grows by another 222 points.  Perhaps, if Sebastian Henao wins the Giro for Skidmark, the last few months will be competitive....

    Top two tie this month: that gap is not getting any smaller.  Ingsve overtaking Karaev is the only change in the top ten, and no-one moved up by more than 2 slots.

    Standings

    Ludwigzgz already had a dominant lead, and has had since very early on (since May 2014: Skidmark meanwhile has never been lower than 3rd, and that was the very first month) , then he goes and wins this segment by a very healthy margin.
     Below the top two, there are several positional swaps, MC Mountain, Italian Gigolo, Ingsve and GP Blanco all moved up, Hugo Koblet, Rote Laterne, Blackbandit222 and Karaev moved down.  Flo rises 5 places to appear in the top ten, and Comodoro has a 6 place rise which, at this stage of the game, is in equal measure impressive and irrelevant.

    Standings
    This period comprised about 10% of the total points for the game, but hasn't changed the positions much.
    In terms of the overall, it has been a bit like Froome winning a huge MTF and a long TT by Wednesday of week 1: Ludwigzgz's lead has got bigger again, and Skidmark will need the equivalent of a half hour breakaway onto the Champs Elysees, perhaps a clean sweep of all the WC podiums would do the job...

    The highest in the table we see any change is GP Blanco up 2 places,and Karaev sneaks back into the top ten.  Fauniera manages to rise 9 places: with relatively few points still available, he should at least have ensured a top half finish.

    I had at least managed something on this edition during the Autumn, but I could absolutely have sworn that I had done an update on what (very little) had happened from the beginning of October to mid November: the spreadsheet had been updated, but I must have somehow lost the update without posting it.

    Nevertheless, here is the scoring for those last couple of months of the game.

    JANS Roy   194pts   1 team (Wins Nationale Sluitingprijs Putte-Kapellen, 2nd in Munsterland Giro for Vladimir)
    LAMPAERT Yves   132   3 (World Championship time trials: 7th as an individual and on wining team for Vladimir, MCMountain and Skidmark)
    MOHORIC Matej   125   41 (Stage win and GC 3rd in Hainan)
    SCHELLING Patrick   87   1
    BAUHAUS Phil   66   1
    KOLAHDOUZ HAGH Amir   64   2


    Like a sprinter in a GT, Vladimir takes the final laurels, even though he was last at the penultimate update.

    1   Vladimir   423
    2   The_Fool_on_the_Hill   367

    But like a GT, the finale made no real difference to the overall, and despite some recovery by Skidmark, what has been apparently inevitable since the autumn of 2014 has indeed come to pass.

    A bit more analysis of the data tomorrow, and the launch of the 2017-19 edition of the game, but unil then, congratulations to Ludwigzgz, as we have known would be due, and to Sidmark and MCMountain for being almost competitive, to all who sent in a team, and (and I should have made a point of doing this more often at the end of these games) a huge thanks to the guys at CQ, without whom none of this would be possible.

    What could have been

    Three years ago I challenged you to identify 18 riders who would emerge from the near obscurity of their early careers within three years.  Our convincing winner picked up 65% of the best possible score (I suspect that will be a challenging benchmark for years to come), which would have been achieved thus:
    ALAPHILIPPE Julian   2335
    YATES Adam   1950
    THEUNS Edward   1696
    BENOOT Tiesj   1674
    VUILLERMOZ Alexis   1493
    LAMPAERT Yves   1462
    BONIFAZIO Niccolo   1392
    FORMOLO Davide   1385
    YATES Simon   1371
    VAKOC Petr   1370
    EWAN Caleb   1363
    NAESEN Oliver   1300
    JANS Roy   1261
    VALGREN ANDERSEN Michael   1247
    ROGLIC Primoz   1174
    LATOUR Pierre   1169
    LOPEZ MORENO Miguel Angel   1129
    CORT NIELSEN Magnus   1101   (Total 25872)

    While the top two were on most teams, and Ewan and the Other Yates Boy were even more popular, this list shows the uncertainty of any correlation between hype and subsequent success as we did not between manage any of Theuns, Benoot, Naesen, Roglic or Lopez.  Vuillermoz was a unique pick for our winner, Ludwigzgz, but that cannot be taken as a sole key to victory, as Jans was also a unique pick, but for Vladimir, who only dodged the lanterne rouge at the last. Formolo (who also made the Collective Wisdom team with 18 picks) and Valgren Andersen (13) reflect a little better on the states of our knowledge 3 years ago, but the numbers selecting any of the rest of this perfect pool were in single figures: Lampaert (3), Bonifazio & Latour (4), Vakoc (6) and Cort Neilsen (9).

    Collective Ignorance
    There was a virtual team that outscored Ludwigzgz, and that is those who, like Theuns, Benoot, Naesen, Roglic and Lopez, were ignored by the whole lot of us 3 years ago. How did we ever ignore all of these?  The guilt is universal.
    THEUNS Edward   1696
    BENOOT Tiesj   1674
    NAESEN Oliver   1300
    ROGLIC Primoz   1174
    LOPEZ MORENO Miguel Angel   1129
    GAVIRIA RENDON Fernando   986
    MARECZKO Jakub   870
    TORRES AGUDELO Rodolfo Andres   858
    CLAEYS Dimitri   841
    BARBIER Rudy   796
    MOSCON Gianni   784
    FEDI Andrea   756
    MCLAY Daniel   752
    SMITH Dion   714
    GROSU Eduard-Michael   695
    CARTHY Hugh   694
    WOODS Michael   682
    MAIKIN Roman   660
    Total  17061

    Collective Wisdom
    Which is essentially the list of the most hyped young riders of late 2013.  Some of them have indeed lived up to the promise, some have probably been nearly forgotten already. 

    This lot were all picked by at least one third of teams
    (Name/score/popularity, in order of popularity)
    EWAN Caleb   1363   44
    YATES Simon   1371   42
    MOHORIC Matej   366   41
    STUYVEN Jasper   746   36
    ALAPHILIPPE Julian   2335   35
    HERKLOTZ Silvio   319   32
    HOWSON DAMIEN   348   30
    YATES Adam   1950   27
    ZABEL Rick   379   27
    SENECHAL Florian   704   23
    HEPBURN Michael   361   21
    EDMONDSON Joshua   177   21
    FORMOLO Davide   1385   18
    KUDUS Merhawi Gebremedhin   606   18
    ZORDAN Andrea   5   18
    HANSEN Lasse Norman   279   17
    HENAO GOMEZ Sebastian   588   16
    LUDVIGSSON Fredrik   94   16
    Their total score of 13376 would have come in 12th.

    Yep: 40% of us named Andrea Zordan as one of the riders most likely to be among the big hitters by now, and in all that time he has earned just 5 points (for coming 125th in Ghent Wevelegem)  Further causes for embarrassment can be found further down this post.

    Other decent returns
    The remainder of the riders who have at least shown some serious progress (500pts + over the three years)  can be split not very flatteringly between those that at least someone thought of:
    DILLIER Silvan   1063   7
    SEPULVEDA Eduardo   952   5
    BARBERO CUESTA Carlos   945   2
    DE BIE Sean   907   12
    FERNANDEZ ANDUJAR Ruben   859   7
    MOLARD Rudy   857   1
    GOUGEARD Alexis   810   7
    HANSEN JESPER   707   2
    BETTIOL Alberto   680   2
    KONRAD Patrick   677   5
    THWAITES Scott   646   1
    CAMPENAERTS Victor   633   2
    KOLAHDOUZ HAGH Amir   600   2
    FRAILE MATARRANZ Omar   591   1
    BAUHAUS Phil   519   1
     and those none of us did:
    KÜNG Stefan   652
    BUSATO Matteo   641
    DEMOITIE Antoine   638
    PRADES REVERTER Eduard   628
    BEVIN Patrick   617
    TURGIS Anthony   616
    BUCHMANN Emanuel   609
    PARRINELLO Antonino Casimiro   596
    TEUNS Dylan   595
    CONTI Valerio   592
    BRANDAO Joni Silva   590
    ANDERSEN Søren Kragh   587
    SPRENGERS Thomas   582
    OOMEN Sam   577
    PARDINI Olivier   577
    TEUNISSEN Mike   561
    ROSSKOPF Joey   559
    VLIEGEN Loïc   548
    CAPIOT Amaury   525
    LAPORTE Christophe   523
    SHALUNOV Evgeny   521
    GRADEK Kamil   520
    EIKING Odd Christian   518
    MÜHLBERGER Gregor   516
    ZANOTTI Marco   505

    Oh dear
    So, who is willing to own up to having invested part of their hopes in this lot, none of whom managed to average even as much as 10 points per year over the last three years?  Whatever could we have been thinking?

    Of course, it might simply be that these riders will have the hoped for trajectory, but on a different timetable, but this game is all about identifying whether it happens in those particular 3 years.

    Year by Year
    I had expected the scoring to be rather more backloaded than it turned out to be: the distribution of the total points scored across the three years was approximately 25% - 35% - 40%

    The top scorers each year were
    2014
    1   Ludwigzgz   4452
    2   Skidmark   4107
    3   HugoKoblet   3753
    4   Blackbandit222   3676
    5   Froome19   3644
    6   Rote_Laterne   3625
    7   Karaev   3621
    8   Ingsve   3614
    9   Comodoro   3612
    10   Hilltop_Finisher   3605

    2015
    1   Ludwigzgz   5853
    2   Skidmark   5587
    3   MC_Mountain   5434
    4   ItalianGigolo   5127
    5   HugoKoblet   5085
    6   Rote_Laterne   5036
    7   Mutschi   4957
    8   NairoQ   4947
    9   Tuart   4699
    10   Blackbandit222   4696

    2016
    1   ItalianGigolo   6631
    2   MC_Mountain   6622
    3   Ludwigzgz   6453
    4   GPBlanco   6165
    5   HugoKoblet   6157
    6   Rote_Laterne   6011
    7   Ingsve   5991
    8   Skidmark   5963
    9   Karaev   5908
    10   Florecita   5792

    How it was won

    A dominant and consistent point haul (top, top and 3rd on year by year breakdown) by Ludwigzgz, gained by this bunch of riders:
    ALAPHILIPPE Julian      2335
    YATES Adam      1950
    VUILLERMOZ Alexis      1493
    FORMOLO Davide      1385
    YATES Simon      1371
    EWAN Caleb      1363
    VALGREN ANDERSEN Michael      1247
    BARBERO CUESTA Carlos      945
    GOUGEARD Alexis      810
    STUYVEN Jasper      746
    SENECHAL Florian      704
    KUDUS Merhawi Gebremedhin      606
    ZABEL Rick      379
    MOHORIC Matej      366
    HEPBURN Michael      361
    HOWSON Damien      348
    BOSWELL Ian      302
    HAUGAARD JENSEN Kristian      47

    What he has here is 12 of the best scoring 13 from the Collective Wisdom team (more than half of us can feel a tiny bit of oneupmanship in regards to selecting Sebastian Henao), and then 4 high scoring picks that most people missed: we have already seen Vuillermoz and Valgren, but Barbero and Gougeard were also very valuable.  Ian Boswell was not a total disaster: on the other 6 teams that chose him, he was on average the 13th highest scorer rather than 2nd lowest.  We will draw a discreet veil over the inclusion of Haugaard Jensen.

    Our winner was 13th in the popularity stakes, and the top team there was his closest challenger throughout, Skidmark, with this selection:
    ALAPHILIPPE Julian      2335
    YATES Adam      1950
    LAMPAERT Yves      1462
    FORMOLO Davide      1385
    YATES Simon      1371
    EWAN Caleb      1363
    SEPULVEDA Eduardo      952
    STUYVEN Jasper      746
    SENECHAL Florian      704
    KUDUS Merhawi Gebremedhin      606
    HENAO GOMEZ Sebastian      588
    ZABEL Rick      379
    MOHORIC Matej      366
    HEPBURN Michael      361
    HOWSON Damien      348
    HERKLOTZ Silvio      319
    HANSEN Lasse Norman      279
    OLIVIER Daan      143

    The first cycle finishes, the fourth begins
    If I don't put up the post for the beginning of the 2017-19 cycle (the 4th iteration of this game) tonight, I will tomorrow. Same idea: 18 riders, less than 200 lifetime CQ points to their name as of end of 2016, to be resolved by end of 2019.

    Let's have a look back at which 18 riders I picked three years ago - and how many CQ points they have scored since then. I end up at 1 point less than what Armchair Cycling calculated, but who's counting:
    Name 2014 2015 2016 Total
    YATES Adam 662 599 689 1950
    YATES Simon 207 543 621 1371
    EWAN Caleb 95 716 552 1363
    DE BIE Sean 89 466 352 907
    STUYVEN Jasper 158 160 428 746
    KUDUS GHEBREMEDHIN Merhawi 241 131 234 606
    VALLEE Boris 54 277 83 414
    REGUIGUI Youcef 31 273 79 383
    ZABEL Rick 116 117 146 379
    MOHORIC Matej 55 97 214 366
    HOWSON Damien 71 105 171 347
    HERKLOTZ Silvio 207 52 60 319
    BOSWELL Ian 50 191 61 302
    HANSEN Lasse Norman 91 142 46 279
    GAIMON Philip 149 32 43 224
    SLIK Ivar 39 5 5 49
    HAUGAARD JENSEN Kristian 43 4 0 47
    ZORDAN Andrea 5 0 0 5
    Total 2363 3910 3784 10057

    Gaimon was never meant to be a serious pick, but even he scored more than double of what Slik, Haugaard, and Zordan brought in combined. :o

    Looking at my 2014 Youth CQ team, those 15 riders (so 3 less) didn't fare much worse:
    Name 2014 2015 2016 Total
    ALAPHILIPPE Julian 358 826 1151 2335
    EWAN Caleb 95 716 552 1363
    VALGREN ANDERSEN Michael 563 143 541 1247
    DE BIE Sean 89 466 352 907
    STUYVEN Jasper 158 160 428 746
    KUDUS GHEBREMEDHIN Merhawi 241 131 234 606
    PEDERSEN Mads 15 175 195 385
    MOHORIC Matej 55 97 214 366
    HOWSON Damien 71 105 172 348
    VAN DER POEL Mathieu 166 93 38 297
    GAIMON Phillip 149 32 43 224
    PARRA BUSTAMENTE Heiner Rodrigo 29 63 105 197
    BELTRAN SUAREZ Edward Alexander 84 64 0 148
    LOH Sea Keong 2 14 0 16
    ZORDAN Andrea 5 0 0 5
    Total 2080 3085 4025 9190

    It hurts to have included Alaphilippe, Valgren & Mads P in the youth game, but not in the emerging riders game. I knew they were going to be good, I was just too stupid to listen to myself.
    Had I picked them instead of Slik, Haugaard & Zordan, I would have finished with 13923 points. :fp

    Better luck next time, I guess. :lol

    Hey AC, I'm late to the wrap-up party on this thread but I just wanted to say thanks for putting on this game! I haven't visited this thread often enough (I guess the updates are fairly spaced out) but I love the premise of this game and I have enjoyed following my teams over the years. Great work. My fate was sealed early in the current year with Sepulveda and Lampaert's injuries, so that made it a bit less thrilling to follow, but it was fun. Congrats to Ludwigzgz!
