Two unique picks! :win

*mx Lemus not getting more love is a bit of a surprise, but not that much. I believe in the MexiCAN though and think that he'll score decently as one of the #academy climbers. In any case, I'm confident that he'll score enough in 2017 to no longer be eligible in 2018.

*no Calle Hagen was an "expert pick" by me: He's been very visible in the Norwegian races the past two seasons, but with (relatively) few point-scoring results. The move to #joker means a bigger and better race calendar and a great team to support him. He'll score at least 100 points this year and may well get a pro deal from 2018 onwards.

    Happy to at least have one unique pick. *za Ryan Gibbons should get a few opportunities with #didata as a neo pro, not expecting him to tear up the world tour but he can get a few top 10s in 1.1s and 1.HCs this year (and has the potential to improve his *za nats ITT and RR results). Expect him to feature more in the Autumn Classics.

    As for the rest, Scotson and Restrepo have already scored significant points this year, Storer, Guerreiro and Bernal have been strong in early races, and Dibben looked good with a top 10 in Mallorca. Storer aside, that looks like a promising group with guaranteed opportunities at a high level this season.

    Yonder Godoy  :cool  had him written down somewhere then forgot to include him.... :fp

    I've had Yonder for about 3 yrs  :( still waiting..

    Just noticed, other than the Izagirre cousin my unique riders are all carried over from either last years youth team or 16-18 emerging riders

    i dont know what i think of that?

    There was a smidgen of method to my madness. One thing I noticed when Armchair posted the end of year report for 2016-18 was the large proportion of CT riders in the best possible team (11/18) and it was naturally even more pronounced in the collective ignorance team (15/18?). Therefore I came up with the plan of not having any WT or PCT riders.

    Of course there are a few issues with this approach. Firstly it's not a one year game and secondly the successful CT riders in 2016 were a rather eclectic mix who maybe only did well in one or two races and could very well sink without trace in the new season.

    The chances of me not finishing bottom are slim to none, but I still have faith in people like Yssaad, Davies and TJ 2.0 (well, maybe not that much in him) to score well. Leemans and Mannaerts were my picks for next Dupont/Planckaert.

    Interesting. I went with the fundamentally opposite approach: Checking the 2014-2016 game results, many of the best-scoring riders were those who had been on WT or at least PCT teams for all three years.
    So I picked as many of those as possible.

    We'll see which approach will have more success. :)

    So here we go:
    Year 1, month 1 (to 5th Feb)

    Best scorers
    RESTREPO VALENCIA Jhonatan      148pts   20 teams (10th in TDU, 4th in Evvans' Ocean Race)
    SCOTSON Miles      127   13 (Aussie RR win, 5th in the TT and finishers' points)
    HINDLEY Jai      119   1 (2nd in Herald Sun, and a few other points, for Jakob747)
    STORER Michael      106   8 (5th in Herald Sun, 15th in TDU)
    MINALI Riccardo      75   14 (7th in GC and stage points in Dubai)
    HAMILTON Lucas      74   2 (7th in Herald Sun, 14th in Evans' Ocean Race for 18Valve and Jakob747)
    BERNAL GOMEZ Egan Arley      30   30 (9th in San Juan GC)
    GUERREIRO Ruben Antonio Almeida      28   16 (top 20 GC in TDU)
    DIBBEN Jonathan      28   12  (6th in one of the Majorcan races)


    Team scores

    Some popular picks there, many of them picked after they had started picking up points (but that is allowed), so a decent start for many teams, and everybody at least off the mark:
    1   DJW   485  (Restrepo, Scotson, Storer, Bernal, Guerreiro, Dibben)
    2   TheAsian   472  (Restrepo, Scotson, Minali, Bernal, Guerreiro, Dibben)
    3   Hakkie2   469   (Restrepo, Scotson, Minali, Bernal, Guerreiro, Dibben)
    4   18Valve   466  (Restrepo, Storer, Minali, Hamilton, Bernal)
    5   Madrazo   444  (Restrepo, Scotson, Minali, Bernal, Dibben)
    6   Murrjt   429
    7   Flo   416
    8   Blues_in_the_Bottle   409
    9   Kazistuta   395
    10   Ludwigzgz   354
    11   ValvPiti   348
    12   Cordi333   345
    13   RoteLaterne   344
    14   Squire   324
    15   Torcio86   293
    16   Josedin   285
    17   Skidmark   279
    18   HugoKoblet   271
    19   Kryvo   267
    20   Del1962   264
    21   GPBlanco   250
    22   Jakob747   238
    23   LukasCPH   215
    24   AmisVelo   214
    25   Scrooll07   201
    26   Armchair_Cyclist   200
    27   Joelsim   198
    28   Vladimir   144
    29   Leadbelly   127
    30   ThePirate81   89
    31   Laarsland   85
    32   Comodoro   81
    33   Togo95   50
    33   Trudgin   50
    35   Tych23   36
       CollectiveWisdom   444

    Some of us already have riders who could already usefully replace members of our 2015-17 team, but although the points in the bank may be welcome, do they really have something to offer over the three years of the game?  Time will tell.

    I hope to keep up with monthly updates, but offers of help, especially during the GT and Classics games, would be welcome.

    Year 1, Month 2 up to 5th March

    The top scoring rider (and the top scoring team, on account of the said rider) are ahead of those in the equivalent games for longer established riders this month.  That's what comes of Langkawi having HC status.
    (Name/pts/teams)
    GIBBONS Ryan      288   1 (GC win, stage win and 3 podiums in Langkawi for DJW)
    BERNAL GOMEZ Egan Arley      116   30  (7th in Langkawi, 5th in Larciano)
    CARAPAZ MONTENEGRO Richard Antonio      89   12 (2nd in Lariano)
    OWEN Logan      65   1  (stage win & 6th in  GC in Volta ao Alentejo for Joelsim)
    CINK Ondrej      64   16 (9th in Ruta del Sol, top 20 in Strade Bianche)
    DUNBAR Eddie      59   3 (5th in Volta ao Alentejo GC)
    O'CONNOR Ben      56   3  (8th in Langkawi for Comodoro, Laarsland and Scrool007)
    RESTREPO VALENCIA Jhonatan      53   20  (2nd in Vuelta a Murcia)


    2nd win out of 2 for DJW, with no close competition this time

    Standings

    Although this is only month three, there was very little change in the table, and none at all in the top 7: 8th and 9th swap places, and Squire rises from 12th to be the only new entrant into the top ten.  Togo95 links top score this month with biggest riser, but 5 places is scarcely game shattering.
    A third place to follow up on 2 wins: DJW's lead already looking serious.

    Two wins yesterday for my guys. Lambrecht at LBL and Ficara in Eritrea.

    The LBL finale was a bit messy as the chasing group, who were about to get the bell, didn't exactly get out of the way for the leading four.

    Year 1, Month 4 3rd to 30th April (yes, that is a week ago, but it was the most recent update when I went to CQ this evening.  I guess it fits the intention of monthly updates...

    Two of the more popular picks came up trumps
    BERNAL GOMEZ Egan Arley      98pts (2nd in Appenino, 9th in Tour of the Alps) for 30 teams
    GAUDU David      81 (7th in Finistere, 9th in Fleche) for 34 teams

    Standings

    DJW still leads the way, but he had a fallible month to give the rest of the contestants some hope.  Blues in the Bottle and 18Valve are new on the podium, and the volatility pf the early stages of the game is shown by Jakob747's 7 place rise into the top ten.

    Year 1, Month 5 1-28 May
    This period was dominated for cycling fans by the Giro, but not in this game.  We had a Giro stage winner in year one of the Emerging riders cycle last year, no more than a few top tens, culminating in a 5th place, this time.

    Year 1, Month 6  29 May to 2 July
    There were some important U23 races this month particularly that only yielded few points (Nat U23, Baby Giro): lack of points not necessarily reflective of performance here.

    Top Scorers
    SCHACHMANN Maximilian      124 (4th in Ster ZLM, 4th in Nat TT, 5th in Nat RR)  23 teams
    CARAPAZ MONTENEGRO Richard Antonio      90pts (2nd in Route du Sud)   12 teams
    LAMBRECHT Bjorg      84   (win Course de la Paix, 2nd in Tour de Savoie Mt Blanc) 7 teams
    GUERREIRO Ruben Antonio Almeida      66   (National Champion) 16
    VENDRAME Andrea      66    (4th in Boucles de la Mayenne) 8
    POWLESS Neilson      66   (2nd in Nats RR, 3rd in the TT) 20

    Early thoughts that DJW might do a Maes, a Bottecchia or a Frantz by leading from stage 1 to the finish are put aside.  Blues in the Bottle moves from second to the leadership, June's top scorer Cordi333 is also the top jumper, with an 8 place climb to second, and a 7 place rise makes Amis Velo the only new entry in the top ten.

    An unchanged podium, but the lead is much reduced.  Madrazo's top score of the month is rewarded with a jump from 8th to 4th, and those 2nd and 3rd this month move into the top ten, Del with a month's best 5 place rise.

    Madrazo's riders have had a great couple of months: he was top of the monthly scores last month, and 2nd this time, which has brought him to the top of the rankings.  Cordi333 retains 2nd place, with previous leader Blues in the Bottle dropping to 3rd.  Madrazo, the month's top scorer, GP Blanco and ValvPiti share the best rise mention (3 spots), the latter breaking into the top ten

    Year 1, Month 10 25th Sept to 5th November  (but not much likely to happen for the rest of the year)

    Those low profile end of year Chinese races with disproportionately high rankings are the unpredictable sting in the tail in these games each season, but we also have Italian Autumn classics and the final WT tours of the year in the month's summary.

    Points this month
    MOSCA Jacopo      201 pts (Stage win and GC win in Tour of Hainan) for Pirate81
    MARTINEZ POVEDA Daniel Felipe      192 (9th in Tre Valli Varesine, 7th in Milano-Torino, 4th GC in Turkey) for 16 teams

    Year one lays a foundation in this game, but even if we have had 33% of the races, we have probably only had about 20% of the scoring if other editions are anything to go by, so much still to happen.

    RESTREPO VALENCIA Jhonatan      236   20      
    BERTAZZO Liam      232   1 (Trudgin)      
    SCHACHMANN Maximilian      221   23      
    KÄMNA Lennard      220   23      
    LAMBRECHT Bjorg      218   7      
    MARTINEZ POVEDA Daniel Felipe      217   16      
    POWLESS Neilson      216   20      
    Team Total      5367  So at least our collective best beats the ignorance score.

    And putting those together yields the Best Possible squad: (6 of them popular enough for the Collective Wisdom team, 7 of them not selected at all)

    BERNAL GOMEZ Egan Arley      766
    THOMAS Benjamin      409
    GIBBONS Ryan      357
    GAUDU David      352
    CARAPAZ MONTENEGRO Richard Antonio      349
    VAN DER HOORN Taco      334
    MOSCA Jacopo      325
    CERNY Josef      311
    JANSEN Amund Grøndahl      304
    MAS NICOLAU Enric      285
    CAVAGNA Rémi      281
    STÜSSI Colin      276
    GUERREIRO Ruben Antonio Almeida      273
    FILOSI Iuri      271
    VAN GESTEL Dries      269
    KUSS Sepp      261
    HINDLEY Jai      260
    HAMILTON Lucas      255

    Team Total      5938

    So our leader is returning 67.6% of the maximum possible, and 80% of us are at least managing more than half of the potential.

    All the numbers here


    Similar to follow for the games that started in 2016 and 2015 to follow in next day or two, if all goes to plan...

    Re: 2017-19 Emerging Riders CQ game
    « Reply #55 on: November 27, 2017, 13:23 »
    Apologies to ThePirate81 and to Joelsim.  The rider entered as Kevin Rivera on the spreadsheet (per their entries) is known to CQ as Kevin Rivera Serrano, and so the single point he got in June wasn't credited to those teams.  Nor were the 154 that he gained in the last update period, for a stage win, 4 yellow jerseys, and the overall win in the Tour of China II  (wherever China II is).

    The Pirate was already top of the October rankings: with Rivera now noticed as the 3rd best scorer of the month, he how has all of the top 4 that month in his team, and won it by a 172 point margin.  In the overall, Pirate moves up one place, and Joelsim four places.
