2015-17 Emerging Riders CQ game
« on: January 03, 2015, 19:57 »
Here is a game for the more patient: the scores are totalled over three years, so you won't know if your selection has been successful until late 2017.

You need 18 riders, and eligibility is a lifetime CQ total of less than 200 points to the end of 2014.  This dropbox file has about two and a half thousand names who each have less than 200 points, are at most 27 years old, and have scored some CQ points in the last 3 years.
You can, of course, pick riders who are over 27, or who have had bad seasons for the last three years, or, more feasibly, who are CQ virgins.

This game has a later closing date than most: the end of January.  In the context of a 3 year game, knowing the points from a few southern hemisphere races in one month is of negligible value.

As usual, names in surname forename format, with the CQ version of spellings where possible, and nothing else, to be PMed to me.


I will aim to provide monthly updates.  However, I would be very happy for someone else to take on such updates: I'll set up the spreadsheet and do the initial analysis, but with the already in progress 2014-16 edition of this game, the decline game, and classics and GT games (and real life) intervening, I might not be able to dedicate much time to analysis and commentary.

We have 45 teams in the first iteration of the game, and 127 riders chosen, with some riders already emerging as significant both as selections and as collective omissions. 

Can we find the stars of 2017?

    Yes, you need to send in a new list. The 2014-2016 game still continues though.

    9 teams so far, 6 days to go.  We have 45 teams in the first edition, so I hope I am in for a busy week of submissions.

    So far there are 67 different riders named, 29 unique picks, one rider on 8/9 and 4 on 7/9 teams.  One rider so far who is new to the CQ database.

    One late entry, from Karaev.  He has been a regular in these games, and the team is 23rd on the popularity of picks chart: I see no reason to suspect cherry picking from the teams already submitted, but if any of you wish to imagine that team in the tables with an asterisk, feel free.  He has no unique picks, but has robbed no-one of any.

    HilltopFinisher submitted a team with 2 Campbell Flakemores in it.  Again, he is a regular participant in CQ games, and I have told him that so long as the replacement is fairly low among the popularity rankings, there should be no difficulty in believing that it was someone on his radar anyway. (Later edit: he has replaced one of the Flakemores with GIBSON Matthew, a unique pick and a member of his youth team)

    Karaev's inclusion of Gaviria releases the perhaps unsurprising statistical quirk that Gaviria was absent from all the early submissions, up to Stage 2 of San Luis, but in more than half of those sent in after that.

    One other footnote to the team submissions: one entrant , perhaps confusing this with the Career in Decline game, sent in a team of 15 instead of 18 on CN.  He then sent, via Velorooms, another team of 15, 7 of whom had been on the original list.  With no reply to my having alerted him to my awareness to his ruse, I have entered his team as the 15 names from the first submitted list, plus the first three non-repeated names on the second team. I shall respect is anonymity to protect the guilty.

    Apologies to Hilltop, Karaev and the unnamed dual-entrant for the use of male pronouns if they are not male.

    Just sent you a PM Armchair, my squad doesn't correlate with what you have down for me above. My records include Mareckzo and Gaviria rather than my initial picks McLay and Van Lerberghe. I'm sure I sent an update to you last week with a revised team.

    True: there were a number of changes to Joelsim's team, and I missed one important submission.  My bad. Now corrected in the spreadsheet and the list above.

    End of month 1

    18 selected riders are off the mark:
    Name/points/popularity
    GAVIRIA RENDON Fernando   56   14
    FLAKEMORE Campbell   54   16
    CONTRERAS PINZON Rodrigo   50   3
    SPOKES Sam   40   1
    JARAMILLO DIEZ Daniel Alexander   35   1
    VALLEE Boris   19   5
    BOSWELL Ian   16   4
    MARECZKO Jakub   13   17
    ORAM James   13   1
    PUTT Tanner   7   1
    ZEPUNTKE Ruben   6   9
    POWER Robert   5   24
    ROOSEN Timo   5   3
    DOMONT Axel   5   2
    ALAFACI Eugenio   5   1
    WATSON Calvin   5   1
    QUINTANA ROJAS Dayer Uberney   4   26
    MARINI Nicolas   3   1

    And all of us have at least one rider on that list (in fact, at least two), so everyone is underway:
    1   Joelsim   147
    2   The_Fool_on_the_Hill   136
    3   GPBlanco   133
    4   Blues_in_the_Bottle   132
    4   HugoKoblet   132
    6   Kazistuta   128
    6   Ruudz0r   128
    8   Josedin   127
    9   Mutschi   125
    10   Jakob747   124
    11   Asdfgh101   114
    12   Karaev   113
    13   Scrooll07   87
    14   Del1962   84
    14   ItalianGigolo   84
    16   Alykaptan   82
    17   Madrazo   78
    18   HilltopFinisher   74
    18   Snccdcno   74
    20   Skidmark   71
    21   MCMountain   63
    22   GeraintTooFast   61
    23   Comodoro   59
    24   Flo   58
    25   Ludwigzgz   40
    26   Vladimir   28
    27   Nuvolablu   24
    28   Multispeed   22
    29   AlPacino   19
    30   RoteLaterne   15
    31   Armchair_Cyclist   9
    31   DJSprtsch   9
    31   Leadbelly   9


    (Fool on the Hill's score is provisional: he is the second rider to have a duplicate Flakemore entry.)

    The riders that scored well this month had gained a high profile before entries to the game closed: those who chose them, for the most part, knew they had done well this month.  But will they be good picks after 3 years of racing rather than 3 weeks?

    Glad I read the 14-16 game thread first because being bottom(however early it may be) is no good.

    Top riders of the month
    All about Kung this month. Volta Limburg win, 4th in the HC Dreidaagse de Panne GC, and winning a WT stage in Romandie mean that he has an early claim to be of another level than the rest of this cohort has yet shown.  21 out of 33 teams have him: might the remainder be out of the race already?

    I don't think I have ever noticed collective wisdom outscore every individual selection before in these games: well done all of us, we are collectively champions.

    Rather ominously, the manager who dominates the 2014-16 edition was 2nd this month and leaps 19 places.   Joelsim, top scorer this month having been 2nd at the end of last month, takes over at the top.

    May Year 1
    Best scoring selected riders
    ROGLIC Primoz   148   1 team (Win in Azerbaijan; unique pick for MCMountain)
    PEDERSEN Mads   103   2 teams  (Dunquerque + Fjords; Asdfgh101 and Comodoro)
    EDMONDSON Joshua   83   1 team (Dunquerque + Fjords; Scrool07)
    EIKING Odd Christian   82   10 teams (Norway + Course de la Paix)
    NAESEN Oliver   73   10 teams (mainly Norway)
    BOSWELL Ian   72   4 teams  (California)
    VAN DER POEL Mathieu   71   21 teams (Tour of Belgium)
    MCLAY Daniel   63   4 teams
    VLIEGEN Loïc   59   3 teams
    WARBASSE Larry   56   2 teams
    DE BUYST Jasper   55   9 teams
    Pedersen and Edmondson were much more popular as picks for the 2014-16 game than they were for this one: will that look like a case of 'optimism too early, despair too soon' for many of us.

    Month's points
    If you have the best scorer of the month as a unique pick, at a stage when scores are generally still pretty low, you have a good chance of being top of the month's rankings:

    Roglic was only on my radar as he was on Geraint Too Fast's main game team last year.  Nice to get me into the lead though.

    Last month's top two scored well again: surely too early for a decisive gap though.
    Vladimir's top score of the month got hima 14 place rise, and a 4 place rise puts Leadbelly on the virtual podium.

    At this point last year (in the 14-16 game) the leader had scored over 1000 points more. Adam Yates probably had something to do with that.

    July, Year 1
    And up to 2nd August.

    I have tweaked the spreadsheet, so that I now have any rider eligible for the game on my radar, not only those who were actually selected (although I might still be missing those who had no CQ record before this year)

    So this is not only the best of our picks in July, but also the best ones that we missed.

    CAMPENAERTS Victor   152   0 teams (2nd in Tour de Wallonie)
    ROGLIC Primoz   109   1 teams (Stage win and 4th overall at Qinghai Lake: MCMountain)
    NAESEN Oliver   85   10 teams (Polynormande win)
    VLIEGEN Loïc   78   3 teams (8th in Wallonie and 11th in London/Surrey; Leadbelly, Madrazo, RoteLaterne)
    WARNIER Antoine   74   0 teams (5th Wallonie)
    VALLEE Boris   73   5 teams (6th in Wallonie: Comodoro, Joelsim, Karaev, Ludwigzgz, Scrooll07)
    LATOUR Pierre   70   23 teams (7th in Österreich-Rundfahrt GC)
    SAVITSKY Ivan   61   0 teams (Qinghai Lake, including one stage win)
    BUCHMANN Emanuel   55   6 teams (3rd to Cauterets in the Tour, plus finishing points: AlPacino, Del1962, Joelsim, Mutschi, Scrooll07, Vladimir)
    KOSHEVOY Ilia   55   3 teams (Stage win and 13th GC in Qinghai Lake: Alykaptan, ItalianGigolo, Snccdcno)
    POLJANSKI Pawel   55   3 teams (9th in GC in Austria: Flo, Mutschi, The_Fool_on_the_Hill)

    And as I have for the 2014-16 Emerging game, I can now reveal a "Collective Ignorance" team: the best 18 riders eligible for the game but overlooked by each and every one of us.  Consider it a communal shaming, and its first incarnation is:

    BEVIN Patrick   397      
    CAMPENAERTS Victor   325      
    TORRES AGUDELO Rodolfo Andres   310      
    ANDERSEN Søren Kragh   257      
    FRAILE MATARRANZ Omar   255      
    BACKAERT Frederik   220      
    CLAEYS Dimitri   210      
    SAVITSKY Ivan   206      
    NIKOLAEV Sergey   162      
    PETILLI Simone   162      
    OCKELOEN Jasper   155      
    GALTA Fredrik Strand   152      
    COMBAUD Romain   146      
    LAAS Martin   139      
    TALIANI Alessio   139      
    DUCHESNE Antoine   135      
    VANGSTAD Andreas   135      
    LAPORTE Christophe   129      
    for a total of 3634 points, way ahead of any real team, and ahead of the 3442 that would be the total of the best 18 we did pick.

    Standings
    These are effectively end of year positions, but still two, hopefully higher scoring, years to come.
    Multispeed has laepfrogged MCMountain to reach the podium, Skidmark's 3 place rise is the best in the top ten and Hilltop Finisher's top place this month (well, seven weeks) saw him rise 6 places.
