Youth CQ Ranking Game 2017

Youth CQ Ranking Game 2017

Hello fellow Veloroomies, welcome to the fifth 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, but I am organizing it this year.

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 ITT 5 January 2017) 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
My aim is to have an update every 2 weeks. I would greatly appreciate some help from other participants. If you are interested in doing an update every now and then, let me know via PM!  :)

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 1992 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.

Players of the game are encouraged to include at least two riders from 1995 or younger who will ride at ProConti level (ie eligible for u23 world champs) or lower and one rider from 1995 or younger who will ride at Continental level or lower (ie will be riding x.2, x.2u, x.NC races). NB: this is entirely voluntary, no additional points can be scored by following up on this encouragement and neither will points be deducted for those who do not follow up on it, nor is this seen as cheating.

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 3rd, 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 4th 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 whose 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 4th deadline.

    Breaking even is the goal of my team, and I could be struggling with that.  :lol

    4 WT
    7 PCT
    2 CT
    2 Club

    Neither Guilherme nor Murrjt have any Frenchmen, but I have four and they're the country with the highest representation in my team.

    I think I might have asked the same thing last year. but if a rider has been a stagiare twice, is he allowed? 

    Not the case in terms of anyone I am considering (or anyone at all, as far as I am aware), but what if three or more stagiare contracts have been undertaken?

    I don't see why not.
    They haven't been on the roster of any pro team in the period January-July before, so even multiple stagiaire deals shouldn't be a hindrance.

    Yes, riders who have only raced for pro teams as a stagiaire are an exception to the rule, no matter how many times :)

    Players of the game are encouraged to include at least two riders from 1994 or younger who will ride at ProConti level (ie eligible for u23 world champs) or lower and one rider from 1994 or younger who will ride at Continental level or lower (ie will be riding x.2, x.2u, x.NC races). NB: this is entirely voluntary, no additional points can be scored by following up on this encouragement and neither will points be deducted for those who do not follow up on it, nor is this seen as cheating.
    Just FYI, the U23 cut-off for 2017 is "born on 01/01/1995 or later" - riders from 1994 aren't U23 anymore.

    You're right - I had already changed the date but turns out I didn't change it last year :fp

    FYI: this isn't a requirement, it's just an encouragement. So it doesn't matter much :)

    Hello everyone!

    Last day to get your team in, after the deadline I will do one last check, please don't post your teams immediately because I want to give people who send their teams in just before the deadline the opportunity to correct possible mistakes in their lineups :)

    We have 36 entrants so far and I'm waiting for a couple more to get back to me with replacements/amendments, so we should definitely break 40. I've listed all accepted teams in the 2nd post of this thread, if you sent in a team, please check to see if your name is in this list, if not, send me a PM just to be sure. NB this list does not include those who've sent in a team with ineligible riders.
