Just over 24 hours to go: 34 teams submitted so far. Please check the OP that I have received your squad.

Good luck to all, especially those quickly cobbling a team together at the 11th hour.

I had my team done ages ago but didn't send it in in case I wanted to make some changes - I'll send it in tomorrow

    Sorry for the delay: I was away for a few days, then a chaotic start to the week.

    Most popular picks (out of 45 teams)

    EWAN Caleb 44 teams (Del1962, uniquely, is impervious to the hype)
    YATES Simon 42 teams (Al Pacino, Hilltop Finisher and Vladimir are unconvinced)
    MOHORIC Matej 41 teams (unappealing to Al Pacino, asdfgh101, Jakob747 and Manafana)
    STUYVEN Jasper 36
    ALAPHILIPPE Julian 35
    HERKLOTZ Silvio 32
    HOWSON Damien 30
    YATES Adam 27
    ZABEL Rick 27
    SENECHAL Florian 23
    EDMONDSON Joshua 21
    HEPBURN Michael 21
    FORMOLO Davide 18

    ZORDAN Andrea 18
    HANSEN Lasse Norman 17
    HENAO MARIN Sebastian 16
    LUDVIGSSON Fredrik 16

    This is our "collective wisdom" team of 18  (popularity ranking = 482)

    Remaining riders chosen:

    Have to say I'd forgotten who was on my team. I could have sworn Magnus Cort was on it, but I went back and checked and I must have swapped him out for somebody else.

    Think I spent more time working out who was eligible then on picking a well thought out team, which possibly explains my high popularity score. Don't think there was too much tactics involved either, other than pickling the majority of my team from the ranks of WT+PCT (greater chance of big points in the following years if they're already at the top lvl?) - the exceptions being Ewan (going to the Ogres), Chevrier (one year at Bissell and then back to France?) and Herklotz (Stolting going PCT next year?).

    One month into a three year game, the first monthly leader list is probably about as relevant to final placings as a yellow jersey in Harrogate, but at least it has given me a chance to test the spreadsheet.

    You might have been surprised not to see any points for the very popular Sebastian Henao.  The spreadsheet didn't give him any points because he somehow seems to have changed his maternal surname:  maybe the family has had some sudden shocking news about who his mother's dad is.

    Now edited: looks better for teams with Henao, drops in rankings for those without.

    I did think this game might come down to picking the riders who would score 1000+ in the third year, but already some teams are ~1500 points behind the leader and we're not even halfway through the first season - could be game over already for them.

    ItalianGigolo is the best riser of the month, up 9 places to 21st, bettering the top 3 scorers of the month (Karaev rose 7 to 14th, Hilltop rose 5 to 13th, and Blackbandit's 6 place rise brings him into the top ten)

    44   Il_Pirata   1256
    45   Vladimir   980
       CollectiveWisdom   2703

    The top two retain their positions, but asdfgh101 replaces Froome19 on the podium.  Del1962 and Florecita have dropped out of the top ten, yielding their places to Hugo Koblet and BlackBandit222.

    So, how will l'Avenir shake things up?

    This time, the update really is to the end of the month.  However, as the last one was to the 10th of August, it is a short term update.  I had expected it to be rather more substantial though, due to the Tour de l'Avenir.  None of the top 5 overall there were selected, so either us, or the race, has failed to identify the stars of the next couple of years.

    Top scorers over these 3 weeks:
    ALAPHILIPPE Julian   196   35 teams (5th in Plouay, 3rd in London, 4th + stage in Tour de l'Ain)
    LAMPAERT Yves   99   3 teams ( mainly from Arnhem - Veenendaal Classic)
    DILLIER Silvan   78   7 teams (mainly top 10 in Vattenfalls)
    JANS Roy   63   1 team
    OLIVIER Daan   56   13 teams
    LATOUR Pierre-Roger   44   4 teams
    VAN DER POEL Mathieu   35   6 teams
    CHEVRIER Clément   34   5 teams
    STUYVEN Jasper   34   36 teams
    SÜTTERLIN Jasha   34   13 teams
    FOLIFOROV Alexander   30   1 team
    RUFFONI Nicola   30   1 team

    I think I can lay claim to the first major fail of the game: my unique pick Ignazio Moser ("Look at that surname, he will surely turn out to be a great"), far from emerging, has retired to make wine.

    So how many CQ points does he get for a gold medal at a major international wine festival?

    No changes in the top three, but Hugo Koblet had the joint biggest rise of the month (up 4 places) to reach 5th, and Karaev is the only new entry into the top 10.

    Re: Emerging riders CQ game
    « Reply #89 on: November 04, 2014, 20:29 »
    Not many of our selected riders scored points in October: only 7 of them hit double figures for the month.  But one man leads the months scores by a huge margin:

    BONIFAZIO Niccolo   319   4 teams
    FORMOLO Davide   99    18 teams
    JANS Roy   92    1 team
    VALGREN ANDERSEN Michael   67   13 teams
    RUFFONI Nicola   36    1 team
    EWAN Caleb   29    44 teams
    GAIMON Phillip   10    3 teams

    It is not difficult, therefore, to spot which teams chose the multi-stage winner and GC runner up in Hainan in the monthly scores:

    Those 4 Bonifazio teams all rise 7 or 8 places, but there are still none in the top 20.  Ludwigzgz extends his lead still further, Hugo Koblet moves up 2 places to the virtual podium, and Froome19 has a similar rise to fifth.  Rote Lanterne slips from third to sixth to allow this, while Commodoro and Hilltop Finisher nudge GPBlanco and asdfgh101 out of the top ten.

    Apologies to Al Pacino, who has been systematically deprived of points throughout the season as CQ changed Beltran's first name from 'Eduard to 'Edward'.  The additional 84 points, now added, raise him from 26th to the dizzy heights of 25th.
