Update 21: We have a winner!

We've already reached the end of the season, the year has gone by so quickly again. The last few weeks of the season weren't very interesting from the perspective of our game, or from any other perspective  ;) One performance stood out, Jacopo Mosca's win at the Tour of Hainan which earned him and the 4 people that picked him a massive 200 points. The effect of this on the rankings? You'll find out soon...

The highest scorer was search, who, besides Mosca, also saw his unique pick Salah Eddine Mraouni score quite a few points. Kryvo was the 2nd highest scorer, he also selected Mosca and also scored with Doull and Gibbons. He shares this position in the highest scorers ranking with shawnm4747, who has the combination of Mosca, Doull and Bico.

Highest scorers
1   search   248
2   Kryvo   211
2   shawnm4747   211
4   AupaPyama   206
5   comodoro   85
6   fauniera   81
7   Pantani1   80
8   scrooll07   71
9   LaFlorecita   61
9   DJW   61

Shawnm4747, AupaPyama and search move up a few spots, but the top-10 is out of reach for them. Most importantly, we see Kryvo rocket up the rankings, from outside the top-10 he moves to 5th overall.

Highest movers
1   Kryvo   +8
2   shawnm4747   +6
3   AupaPyama   +5
3   search   +5
5   Pantani1   +3
6   DJW   +1
6   Kazistuta   +1
6   Squire   +1
6   Arb   +1
6   Trudgin   +1
6   Pentacycle   +1
6   comodoro   +1

Overall, CraZyCaLL and Hakkie2 both had a terrible week, scoring only 5 points, but they were too far ahead to be threatened by anyone. Kryvo's surge is the most notable thing in the final top-10, snccdcno drops out of the top-10 at the last moment, and curiously we have two people with exactly the same score in the top-10, al_pacino and Kazistuta in 9th, quite rare :)

So, CONGRATULATIONS to CraZyCaLL and THANKS to everyone for playing :)

Overall
1   0   CraZyCaLL   3026
2   0   Hakkie2   2954
3   0   LaFlorecita   2885
4   0   fauniera   2721
5   +8   Kryvo   2629
6   +1   DJW   2628
7   -2   GP Blanco   2610
8   -2   rote_lanterne   2583
9   -1   al_pacino   2519
9   +1   Kazistuta   2519

    Great work Flo: I tend to be happy with anything in the top half of the table given the way my powers of estimation have slumped since the first couple of years, so I'm alright with how it went.

    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

    A little info about the 2018 edition of this game:
    1) absolutely not an issue for me - it's great that you take the time and make the effort to do regular updates at all. :cool

    2) I may or may not be available to do the occasional update. This isn't a definite "yes, I'll do it" yet as I don't know how my 2018 will look, in many aspects; it's a "I don't rule it out".

    3) I agree that the second option sounds most prudent.
    And it also means that we can all point & laugh at those who picked the best U23 rider in the Aussie nationals who then goes on to do flip all in the remaining 11.5 months of the year (and, yes, that group will likely include yours truly).

    Case in point - Campbell Flakemore ;)

    The ones I could see go well in the Nats are all quite expensive - will require a lot more than a few dozen points to be good picks
