    Big Budget selections
    3000 point budget for 12 riders makes for an average of 250 points/rider, but who wants a team full of average riders?

    No very expensive, very popular riders this time,
    Who spent big on whom? Any riders dearer than Cancellara (449 points, or 150% of budget) listed. * again shows unique picks.

    Van Avermaet* (1685) Just some Guy, who also has Dan Martin(526)
    Degenkolb* (1412) Guilhermo Ribeiro, who also has Rui Costa* (1108), hoping for remarkable recovery from the car crash.
    Gilbert* (1301), AG
    Stybar (952) Armchair, Los Brolin and Trudgin (also Roelandts* (703))
    Benoot (872) Amis Velo, Comodoro, Del1962 (those 3 also have D Martin, and Del also has Demare(464)), GeraintTooFast (also has Vanmarcke(600), LukasCPH (also Drucker* (503)), Togo95
    Lampaert*(724) Scrool07
    Vanmarcke (600), GeraintTooFast as named above, but also with B'baas (also Bole*(475)), GPBlanco, Murrjt, Search, Tom-Jelte (those 4 all also having D Martin), Joelsim, Josedin, LeadBelly, Madrazo, Rote Laterne, Vladimir (has Demare as well)
    Kreuziger*(552) and Rosa* (507) both in Flo's team
    D Martin (526) Several already named, also Kazistuta (also with Demare), Asdfgh101, DJW and MellowVelo
    Breschel*(452) for Not My Circus
    And the answer to the earlier question, "who wants a team full of average riders?" seems to be DJSprtsch, who has no-one dearer than Cancellara in his side.

    Taking Cancellara as the definition of average is, I concede, open to challenge.

    The entry criteria for a race are:
    a) one day races
    b) in Europe
    c) between Omloop and Liege
    d) WT, HC, or 1.1 if at least 6 WT teams took part the previous year.

    Yeah, errrmm, you are aware that getting unique picks, of itself, is not a goal.  It would have been very easy to pick 12 unique picks, but they would score almost 0 points.

    Day 1, a double header to start
    No-one ever looks forward to the Sud Ardeche race as the real beginning of the season, but it usually happens on the day that many consider to be that annual landmark.

    It will not be much looked back either in this game, except perhaps by Murrjt:
    VAKOC Petr   80 points   1 team (Murrjt)
    ARREDONDO MORENO Julian David   12 pts   1 team (Search)
    VICHOT Arthur   5   5 teams

    The main event, however, was the Omloop,
    VAN AVERMAET Greg   140   1 (Just Some Guy)
    BENOOT Tiesj   72   6 (Amis Velo, Comodoro, Del1962, GeraintTooFast, LukasCPH, Togo95)
    ROWE Luke   62   4 (DJSprtsch, DJW, NotMyCircus, Scrool07)
    PETIT Adrien   42   12
    STUYVEN Jasper   30   9
    LADAGNOUS Matthieu   26   1
    VAN ASBROECK Tom   12   1
    and 8 other riders getting 5 to 9 points, for up to 5 teams.

    Top scoring teams in the Omloop:
    1   AmisVelo   144 (Benoot, Petit, Stuyven)
    1   Togo95   144 (Benoot, Petit, Stuyven)
    3   GeraintTooFast   140 (Benoot, Petit, Ladagnous)
    3   JustSomeGuy   140 (Van Avermaet)
    5   DJW   134  (Rowe, Petit, Stuyven)
    6   Comodoro   119  (Benoot, Petit, Van Der Sande)
    7   Scrool07   104 (Rowe, Petit)
    8   DJSprtsch    97 (Rowe, Stuyven)
    9   LukasCPH   80 (Benoot, Gatto)
    10   Murrjt   72 (Rowe, Stuyven)
    10   Del1962   72 (Benoot)

    The combination of top in France and joint 10th in Belgium is enough to make Murrjt our first overnight leader:
    1   Murrjt   152
    2   Togo95   149
    3   AmisVelo   144
    4   GeraintTooFast   140
    4   JustSomeGuy   140
    6   DJW   134
    7   Comodoro   119
    8   Scrool07   104
    9   DJSprtsch   97
    10   LukasCPH   80
    11   Del1962   72
    12   NotMyCircus   67
    13   Josedin   54
    14   Search   52
    15   GPBlanco   51
    16   Kazistuta   47
    16   Flo   47
    16   Bbaas   47
    19   MellowVelo   42
    20   Vladimir   39
    21   Leadbelly   35
    22   Trudgin   19
    23   Madrazo   13
    24   Armchair   9
    24   Asdfgh101   9
    26   RoteLaterne   8
    27   Joelsim   5

    28   AG   0
    28   LosBrolin   0
    28   GuilhermeRibeiro   0

    So I really need my riders to dbl up in the top 10 a few times.

    But picked GVA as he rider MSR L-B-L plus most races from now until Paris - Roubiax and while not the most winning in generally the most consistent

    Then Fabs as the obvious

    Then I looked at the ardennes and picked Martin and Gerrans who could win 1-2 and hopefully get a nice back of points

    The issue then becomes filling the team so I looked to teams who got invites Breen and big Björn are cheap so hope for profit, Goss is 10 but a waste Wagner, Honig, Laton I am hoping can get into profit Bouhani may not and Delfosse probably not either, so backed in for the big riders


    BREEN Vegard   
    THURAU Björn   

    GOSS Matthew   
    WAGNER Robert   *
    HONIG Reinier   *
    LATON Eryk   *
    BOUHANNI Rayane   *
    DELFOSSE Florent   *

    bummed I couldn´t get Howard in my team this he will be a good pick

    My strategy was simply to go for riders who have a chance of scoring their price. Hence Kittel and Gaviria even though they'll probably only race a couple of Spring races.

    Day 2: A three headed beast


    In France, the Drome Classic was somewhat of a repeat of yesterday's Sud Ardeche, much to Murrjt's delight.

    VAKOC Petr   80pts   1 team (Murrjt)
    VICHOT Arthur   40   5 (B'baas, LeadBelly, NotMyCircus, Search, Togo95)
    GASPAROTTO Enrico   9   4 (Kazistuta, MellowVelo, Rote Laterne, Vladimir)

    Lugano is an HC race, so more points available, but its field is not filled with the riders most of us look for here, so it has rather less impact on the game, except on the score of our only newcomer to the game: B'baas had both GAVAZZI Francesco (11 points) and BOLE Grega (5) as unique picks.


    And so to the main event of the weekend, Kuurne-Brussels-Kuurne:
    STUYVEN Jasper   140points    9 teams
    GROENEWEGEN Dylan   62   2
    WISNIOWSKI Lukasz   54   1
    DEMARE Arnaud   22   3
    PETIT Adrien   15   12
    KREDER Raymond   12   1
    OSS Daniel   9   5
    VAN LERBERGHE Bert   8   3
    VAN ASBROECK Tom   7   1
    VANDENBERGH Stijn   5   15
    FENN Andrew   5   1

    The top race scorers were:
    The top nine all had Stuyvens: Kazistuta being the best of the rest.  Here is who else got them points today:
    1   DJSprtsch   207 (Groenwegen and Vandenburgh)
    2   DJW   169 (Petit, Oss and Vandenburgh)
    3   Togo95   164 (Petit and Oss)
    4   Vladimir   162 (Demare)
    5   AmisVelo   160 (Petit and Vandenburgh)
    6   Murrjt   155 (Petit)
    7   Leadbelly   153 (Van Lerberghe and Vandenburgh)
    8   Search   145 (Vandenburgh)
    9   Flo   140
    10   Kazistuta   91 (Wisniowski, Demare and Petit)

    So after 2 days and 5 races, the standings are:
    1   Murrjt   387
    2   Togo95   353
    3   DJSprtsch   304
    3   AmisVelo   304
    5   DJW   303
    6   Search   237
    7   Leadbelly   228
    8   Vladimir   210
    9   Flo   187
    10   GeraintTooFast   155
    11   Kazistuta   147
    12   JustSomeGuy   140
    13   Comodoro   134
    14   NotMyCircus   133
    15   Bbaas   126
    16   Scrool07   124
    17   Del1962   94
    18   Josedin   81
    19   MellowVelo   80
    19   LukasCPH   80
    21   GPBlanco   71
    22   LosBrolin   67
    23   RoteLaterne   27
    24   Madrazo   26
    25   Armchair   23
    26   Trudgin   19
    27   Asdfgh101   14
    28   Joelsim   5
    29   TomJelte   0
    29   AG   0
    29   GuilhermeRibeiro   0
       CollectiveWisdom   232

    More than 25% of the races gone already, but the major point races are still to come: my team might yet make triple figures.
    Next up: Le Samyn on Wednesday.

    Race 6: Le Samyn

    The race was more impressive than our picking: Terpstra was prohibitively expensive, but the unselected Scott Thwaites has taken enough points in the first half a week of the game to have been worth a place on many teams.

    But we didn't miss the point earners entirely:
    SENECHAL Florian   40pts    5 teams (Armchair, Asdfgh101, Flo, GPBlanco, Vladimir)
    GROENEWEGEN Dylan   28   2 (DJSprtsch, Los Brolin)
    BYSTRØM Sven Erik   24   3 (DJW, Flo, Leadbelly)
    WYNANTS Maarten   16   1 (Search)
    MARTINELLI Davide   5   2 (Del1962, GPBlanco)

    So the points earned are:
    1   Flo   64
    2   GPBlanco   45
    3   Vladimir   40
    3   Armchair   40
    3   Asdfgh101   40
    6   DJSprtsch   28
    6   LosBrolin   28
    8   DJW   24
    8   Leadbelly   24
    10   Search   16
    11   Del1962   5
    12    Everyone else, including Collective Wisdom    0

    Standings:
    DJSprtsch is 3rd rather than joint third, DJW moves to 4th, Vladimir came third on the day but still loses one place to Flo, and GPBlanco, Los Brolin and Asdfgh101 all move up at least 3 places, but within the lower half of the early table.

    1   Murrjt   387
    2   Togo95   353
    3   DJSprtsch   332
    4   DJW   327
    5   AmisVelo   304

    Race 7: Strade Bianche
    The most popular rider in the game makes the three who did not pick him suffer:
    CANCELLARA Fabian   140pts    28 teams (out of 31)
    STYBAR Zdenek   84   3 (Armchair, Los Brolin and Trudgin)
    VAKOC Petr   54   1 (Murrjt)
    VAN AVERMAET Greg   48   1 (Just Some Guy)
    BENOOT Tiesj   36   6 (Amis Velo, Comodoro, Del1962, GeraintTooFast, LukasCPH, Togo95)
    OSS Daniel   12   5 (Armchair, DJW, MellowVelo, NotMyCircus, Togo95)
    MOSCON Gianni   8   2 (Joelsim, Kazistuta)
    STUYVEN Jasper   5   9
    BOLE Grega   5   1
    GRIVKO Andriy   5   1

    Points on the day
    Maybe I should just stop the game here, and declare it to have been the CQ Strade Bianche game.  I won't bother naming Cancellara as a point earner in the breakdown of the top teams' hauls, take it as read.

    1   Armchair   236 (Stybar and Oss)
    2   LosBrolin   224 (Stybar)
    3   Murrjt   199 (Vakoc and Stuyven)
    4   Togo95   193 (Benoot, Oss and Stuyven)
    5   JustSomeGuy   188 (Van Avermaet)
    6   AmisVelo   181 (Benoot and Stuyven)
    7   GeraintTooFast   176
    7   Comodoro   176
    7   Del1962   176

    Standings
    My magnificent and glorious victory on the day makes me the fastest riser as well, but humility kicks back in when I admit that the height I've reached is only 14th.  Vakoc is still maintaining Murrjt's lead, and although it might look as though the first two have already opened daylight between themselves and the rest of the field, things can change quickly when we get the bigger points from WT races.

    1   Murrjt   586

    4   DJW   484

    11   JustSomeGuy   328
    12   LosBrolin   319
    13   Comodoro   310
    14   Armchair   299

    If I had known that GP Industria was going to get so many WT teams entering when I posted the game details, it would have made the list.

    Of course, the picks we have made would have been altered by the major strategic implications of this, but as it stands, it would only have made a difference to 2 teams:
    LukasCPH has the winner, Simon Clarke, and would have had 80 points,
    Bbaas has both Fedi (2nd) and Gavazzi (5th), and would also have got 80 points.

    If I keep the same criteria next year, then this point fest will be part of next year's game.

    Race 8:Nokere Koerse

    Timothy Dupont, had anyone been able to predict his win, would have instantly been a worthwhile pick with 140 points for a 198 point payout, and Halvorsen could have been in your team with no expenditure and with 84 points will outscore many of our pricier selections.

    But in the realm of who we did actually pick, we find these:
    GROENEWEGEN Dylan   72pts    2 teams (DJSprtsch and Los Brolin)
    MOSCON Gianni   36   2 (Joelsim and Kazistuta)
    VAN LERBERGHE Bert   22   3 (B'baas, LeadBelly and Madrazo)
    VAN KEIRSBULCK Guillaume   12   4
    MARTINELLI Davide   10   2
    WISNIOWSKI Lukasz   5   1
    FENN Andrew   5   1
    VAN DER SANDE Tosh   5   1

    1   DJSprtsch   72
    1   LosBrolin   72
    3   Kazistuta   41
    4   Joelsim   36
    5   Leadbelly   22
    5   Bbaas   22
    5   Madrazo   22
    8   DJW   12
    8   Scrool07   12
    8   Josedin   12
    8   Trudgin   12
    12   Del1962   10
    12   GPBlanco   10
    14   Comodoro   5
    14   RoteLaterne   5
    Everyone else drew a blank today.

    The only meaningful change in standings is Groenewegen lifting DJSprtsch from 5th to 2nd,but the big points start on Saturday in San Remo, that should really shift this table around.
    1   Murrjt   586
    2   DJSprtsch   549
    3   Togo95   546
    4   DJW   496
    5   AmisVelo   485
    6   Leadbelly   419
    7   Search   398
    8   Flo   396
    9   Vladimir   395
    10   LosBrolin   391
    11   Kazistuta   336
    12   GeraintTooFast   331
    13   JustSomeGuy   328
    14   Comodoro   315
    15   Armchair   299
