Hello all

A little info about the 2018 edition of this game:

1) I would not mind doing (most of) the updates again next year, as long as you all don't mind the updates being up a little later in the week. I'm busy with lots of other things besides cycling so I often only find time to do an update in the 2nd half of the week. I didn't hear any complaints about it this year, but I want to make sure this is not an issue.

2) I'm guessing I can still count on the usual suspects to help out with an update every now and then (snccdcno, search, DJW), of course all help is welcome so if you wouldn't mind doing 1 or 2 updates next year, let me know. Updating the spreadsheet is not complicated at all, most of the time goes into writing the update which could take anywhere between 15 to 60 minutes depending on the level of detail and how focused you are at the time of writing :D

and most importantly 3)...

I will be away from 23rd of December to 8th of January... the Australian championships take place from January 3rd to January 7th. So there are two options:
- either someone else needs to collect the teams during this period AND process them... while I don't want to discourage anyone, I have to be honest and say this takes quite a bit of time because you have to make sure all riders are eligible
- or we push the deadline back 1.5 week, the Tour Down Under starts January 14th, the deadline would be perhaps 24 hours before the start of the first stage. This means you could in theory select a rider that scored in the Australian national championships and get a headstart, but that shouldn't have too much of an impact on the final rankings, I believe.

I prefer the 2nd option because it seems unlikely to me anyone will volunteer to process the teams - of course there is a third option which is that all teams are send to me before the 3rd of January and I process them when I get back, however considering how often I have to get back to people and tell them to change an ineligible rider I don't think this would be a good idea
