Youth CQ Ranking Game 2016

Youth CQ Ranking Game 2016

Hello fellow Veloroomies, welcome to the fourth annual Youth CQ Ranking Manager Game.  This game allows you to showcase your knowledge of upcoming youngsters, and hopefully take a gamble on a couple of really young riders.
Originally this game was invented by mc_mountain, based on Hugo Koblet's CQ Ranking Manager Game. This year, I will take over as mc_mountain will be too busy to run it properly.

Your task is to create a team with 12-15 riders at 1000 CQ points to get the best possible return.

1. How the game works

1.1. Duration
The season starts when the first race is held (Australian Road Cycling Championships 7th-10th January 2016) and ends when the last major race (.1 or higher) is held. The winner will be crowned when the next update after the last major race (x.1) is out - submissions can be made to extend the season to include late season smaller races, should there be potential for them to affect the top placings.  A victor can be declared earlier if there is no prospect of the leader being overhauled.

1.2. Updates
I will attempt to do an update every 2 weeks, but I am not sure I will be able to. At the very least I will do monthly updates. Another member, search, offered to do an update every now and then. If you would be willing to do an update sometimes too, let me know. If 3 or 4 people, besides me, could do updates, we could work out a schedule in which I post an update at the end of the month, and another member does one halfway through the month.

2.  On doping
Hopefully doping will have much less of an impact on this game, but the Main game rules will apply.

3.Submitting your team

3.1. How do I?
You pick between 12 and 15  riders whose combined value doesn’t exceed 1000 points and submit your team to me via PM (either on CN forum or on Velorooms forum). Please be sure to use the naming format as found on cqranking.com and only send me your riders' names, not their scores etc.

3.2. Eligibility
Riders need to fit one of the following two main criteria
i) be a first year professional rider (of any age), be it at World Tour or Professional Continental team.
ii) be riding at Continental level or lower, born in 1991 or younger, without having previously ridden as a professional.

For clarity, riders should not have already ridden a full year as a professional at either World Tour or Professional Continental level – riding as a stagiaire does not prevent selection.  Riders who have signed their first pro contract in August (or later), are considered for the purposes of this game as no different from stagiaire riders.
EDIT: For example Loic Vliegen signed with BMC from 1/07 on last year, he isn't eligible.

Players of the game are encouraged to include at least two riders from 1993 or younger who will ride at ProConti level (ie eligible for u23 world champs) or lower and one rider from 1993 or younger who will ride at Continental level or lower (ie will be riding x.2, x.2u, x.NC races).

If you are unsure about the eligibility of a rider, feel free to PM me.

Deadline
You can submit your team as of right now. The deadline for submission is January 5th, 16:00 CET (http://www.timebie.com/timelocal/centraleuropean.php). After this deadline, team submissions will no longer be accepted. I will then process the teams, which includes checking eligibility. If I encounter an issue with your team, e.g. you've included the same rider twice, you are over budget or a rider you selected is not eligible, I will contact you via PM and give you the opportunity to correct the mistake before January 6th 23:00 CET. If after this deadline, you haven't yet gotten back to me, or there is still an issue with your team, I will:
i) in case you are over the budget, remove a rider to bring you under the budget. This will be the cheapest available rider on your team who's removal will bring you to or under the budget;
ii) in case you selected too many riders, remove the cheapest available rider from your team;
iii) in case of ineligibility, remove the ineligible rider.

I would like to ask the participants to delay the big reveal of their teams until after the January 6th deadline.
I have sent my personal team to CN Forum and Velorooms members just some guy, after the 2nd deadline he will confirm my team in the spreadsheet is the same as the team I sent to him.

    Yep it has... http://velorooms.com/index.php?topic=7678.0

    Quote
    two deadlines: a submission deadline and a revision/publication deadline, spaced 24 hours apart.
    The submission deadline is 23:59 (CET) January 4th, so early January 5th for Aussies and sometime on January 4th for North Americans. The revision and publication deadline is 24 hours later; I would ask that people refrain from posting the riders on their team until after that, so midnight CET on the start of January 6th.

    Alcohol and sugar high fuelled selections all the way  :lol :lol

    WT - 3
    PCT - 5
    CT - 6
    Unknown - 1(!)

    It's so cool that this game will carry on.  Many thanks to Flo and her team of helpers for taking on the task.  I am very hopeful that the game will go on to even greater things in her/their care.
