Quick reminder: although the deadline for entries is 10:45 (UTC) on Saturday, my travels mean that if you want your entry checked, I need it by midnight tonight.

30 entries so far, which makes me think we will have several more than last year by the time we start.  One team still needs correction for being over-budget, or will have one rider removed to bring him under the maximum spend.  If you think you have registered (as of the timestamp on this post), check the list in the OP.  If you are not there, I have somehow not received your PM, so please try again.


Edit: 3 more teams in by midnight, they are also on the OP: the rest of you will have to be extra careful.  Good luck with the late decisions, and I will be back with some stats on Sunday.

  • Of course, if this turns out someday to be the industry standard integrated handlebar-computer-braking solution then I'll eat my kevlar-reinforced aerodynamic hat.

    I’m home now, but have recorded the Omloop, so am avoiding result of that until I watch it.  So here are the game start details, and I’ll post Saturday’s races’ implications on Sunday morning.

    43 teams in the end, 42 of them within budget: here they are (alphabetical order of teams, price order within teams, unique picks marked with an *)

    The big spends

    It doesn’t take great mathematical expertise to calculate that a budget of 3000 points spread across 12 riders means the average spend per rider if 250: those on whom we have spent twice that average are:

    (Rider/price/teams)
    VAN AVERMAET Greg   2279   1
    ALAPHILIPPE Julian   1151   1
    BOONEN Tom   951   2
    GAVIRIA RENDON Fernando   833   9
    GILBERT Philippe   777   1
    TERPSTRA Niki   764   1
    VANMARCKE Sep   744   10
    STYBAR Zdenek   736   1
    NAESEN Oliver   643   3
    KWIATKOWSKI Michal   611   7
    FELLINE Fabio   607   3
    BENOOT Tiesj   588   26
    CORT NIELSEN Magnus   555   1
    GASPAROTTO Enrico   551   1
    DEGENKOLB John   550   34

    Some teams managed to buy 4 of these:
    GAVIRIA RENDON Fernando, KWIATKOWSKI Michal   BENOOT Tiesj, DEGENKOLB John:  Del1962, EvansIsTheBest
    GAVIRIA RENDON Fernando, BENOOT Tiesj, CORT NIELSEN Magnus, DEGENKOLB John:  Joelsim                     
    GILBERT Philippe, VANMARCKE Sep, NAESEN Oliver, BENOOT Tiesj:  AG   
    NAESEN Oliver, KWIATKOWSKI Michal, BENOOT Tiesj, DEGENKOLB John:  Just Some Guy

    Some found room for 3:
    GAVIRIA RENDON Fernando, KWIATKOWSKI Michal, FELLINE Fabio:  Los Brolin
    GAVIRIA RENDON Fernando, BENOOT Tiesj, DEGENKOLB John:  Tom-Jelte, Crevaison
    VANMARCKE Sep, BENOOT Tiesj, DEGENKOLB John   : Armchair Cyclist, Leadbelly, Squire, The_Asian, LightBing, GeraintTooFast
    STYBAR Zdenek, BENOOT Tiesj, DEGENKOLB John:  Kjellus   
    KWIATKOWSKI Michal, FELLINE Fabio, DEGENKOLB John:  Mellow Velo
    KWIATKOWSKI Michal, BENOOT Tiesj, DEGENKOLB John:  Togo95, Kazistuta

    Others have 2:   
    BOONEN Tom, GASPAROTTO Enrico:Trudgin
    BOONEN Tom, DEGENKOLB John: DJSprtsch
    ALAPHILIPPE Julian, GAVIRIA RENDON Fernando:  Josedin
    GAVIRIA RENDON Fernando, DEGENKOLB John:  Amis Velo, Spokenspin
    TERPSTRA Niki, BENOOT Tiesj:  Scrool07
    VANMARCKE Sep, DEGENKOLB John:  Rote Laterne, SemirS, Madrazo
    NAESEN Oliver, BENOOT Tiesj:  ChrisDK
    FELLINE Fabio, DEGENKOLB John:  Comodoro
    BENOOT Tiesj, DEGENKOLB John, Hakkie, Search, GPBlanco, Russell23, Archieboy, Shalgo, ThePirate81, NotMyCircus

    Or saw no reason to invest heavily more than once:
    VAN AVERMAET Greg: All In
    DEGENKOLB John:  DJW,Vladimir, Laarsland

    And some have entered very egalitarian teams, with no real leader at all:
    AupaPyama (Vuillermoz 437 is his dearest pick)
    Carlo_Algatrensig (Thwaites 322 is the highest spend)

    Rider popularity

    How many of our 43 teams chose each rider?

    34:  DEGENKOLB John
    29:  BOOM Lars
    26:  BENOOT Tiesj
    25:  VAN KEIRSBULCK Guillaume
    16:  BRESCHEL Matti
    16:  ROWE Luke
    16:  STANNARD Ian

    14:  RESTREPO VALENCIA Jhonatan
    13:  DEVOLDER Stijn
    13:  VANDENBERGH Stijn
    12:  BOECKMANS Kris

    That selection of the top 12 picks fits neatly into the budget, with  total cost of 2973, so comprises our Collective Wisdom team.

    Other picks ranked by popularity:
    11: CINK Ondrej, GOUGEARD Alexis, TEUNS Dylan
    10:  DOULL Owain, VANMARCKE Sep
    9: GAVIRIA RENDON Fernando
    7:  KWIATKOWSKI Michal, THEUNS Edward

    5:  OSS Daniel, PONZI Simone
    4:  BOZIC Borut, HAAS Nathan, MINALI Riccardo, PEDERSEN Mads, SIEBERG Marcel, TEUNISSEN Mike
    3:  BOUHANNI Rayane, CALMEJANE Lilian, FELLINE Fabio, GARCIA CORTINA Ivan, HARDY Romain, LAMPAERT Yves, NAESEN Oliver, OLIVIER Daan, SARAMOTINS Aleksejs, SIMON Julien, VLIEGEN Loïc, WAEYTENS Zico
    2:  ALBASINI Michael, ALLEGAERT Piet, ANDERSEN Søren Kragh, ARREDONDO MORENO Julian David, BOONEN Tom, CIMOLAI Davide, CORBEL Erwann, DE BACKER Bert, DE PLUS Laurens, DECLERCQ Benjamin, DILLIER Silvan, ERVITI OLLO Imanol, GATTO Oscar, GERTS Floris, HANSEN Lasse Norman, KORSAETH Truls Engen, MALORI Adriano, OFFREDO Yoann, PELUCCHI Matteo, PETERS Nans, SALOMEIN Jarl, THWAITES Scott, VAN MEIRHAEGHE Jef, VAN ROOY Kenneth, VERVAEKE Louis, VIVIANI Elia, VUILLERMOZ Alexis, WATSON Calvin

    The unique picks (72 of them) are marked above.

    That makes for a total of 142 riders.

    Race 1: Classic d'Ardèche

    I guess I can check the spreadsheet, and find the result of the Ardeche Classic, without it spoiling my enjoyment of the recorded Omloop.

    Riders finishing 2nd, 7th and ninth were the only ones in the point scoring top twenty that we chose between us.

    CATTANEO Mattia   48   1
    SIMON Julien   24   3
    CALMEJANE Lilian   16   3

    1   GeraintTooFast   48
    2   Scrool07   24
    2   Search   24
    2   The_Asian   24
    5   Josedin   16
    5   NotMyCircus   16
    5   Togo95   16

    With only 2 WT teams in this, it would seem unlikely to be included in the game next year (unless I am strongly petitioned to change the terms for race inclusion).  The same seems likely with the Drome Classic.  Points from these tend to make little impact in the game by late April.

    I was soo close to picking Finetto - but he initially wasn't lined up for Ardeche, nor for any other classics (not on PCS at least). I guess he may end up doing a handful of races, but without any confirmation at all it was just a tad too risky...

    when I saw the result I though Search will be happy but not as much as expected  ;)

    Race 2: Omloop Het Nieuwsblad

    The appropriately named team All_In, with more than 3/4 of his budget spent on one rider, who is twice the price of any other rider included in the game, gets at least some return on his investment with Van Avermaet's win.  Sagan, as noted in the OP, is effectively banned from selection, but third placed Vanmarcke was fairly popular for an expensive rider. 
    The next five finishers were all part of our game, Rowe and Stuyven even being in the Collective Wisdom team, as were Breschel and Van Keirsbulck (18th and 21st).  Between us, we named 12 of the top 20, and 37 point scoring finishers in all, and we are all off the mark (even if only through one finisher in 60th place)

    This is essentially the same as the overall ranking: GeraintToo Fast is 8th in the overall, and is the highest placed rider whose scored was enhanced in the Ardeche.

    Race 3: Kuurne-Brussels-Kuurne

    Given that the winner was impossible to pick, we collectively did very well with 2nd, 3rd and 4th all being very popular picks (and Collective Wisdom came joint second on this race), and also between us getting 7th, 8th, 9th, 4 other top 20 finishers and another 2 five pointers among the top 30.

    Race 4: Drôme Classic

    Not the race most of us will have been predicting in building our teams for (and unlikely to be included next year, as it had only 2 WT teams), but nevertheless, three managers picked each of 8th, 12th and 13th.

    HARDY Romain   24   3
    SIMON Julien   9   3
    CALMEJANE Lilian   8   3

    1   AupaPyama   24

    4   The_Asian   9
    7   Josedin   8

    Geraint has been the expert in this French mini-series: he might miss them next year.

    So with 4 of the 20 races gone:

    Race 5: Le Samyn

    Not many scoring riders but they were 3 of the first 4, but one of them made many teams happy.

    1   Spokenspin   120  (Van Keirsbulck and Keisse)
    2   Vladimir   116  (Van Keirsbulck and Senechal)
    3   23 other teams   80   (Van Keirsbulck)

    Those who missed out on Van Keirsbulck were concentrated towards the top of the standings this morning, including 1st, 3rd, 5th and 4 more of the top ten.  Not any more...

    Hated my team right after submitting, but I'm behind them anyway. I was kind of bummed not to be able to play Le Samyn on some other fantasy games, so nice consolation prize my team here finishing first there! GVK and Keisse. Nice-a. Can't wait for Strade Bianche... :-x

    Wait no longer:

    Race 6: Strade Bianche

    A great race, and a popular annual event, and a decent performance by our selectors. 
    We had a moderately popular winner, two UPs in second and fourth, and one of the top picks in 8th, and rare picks 10th and 13th.  Four more of the top 25 are part of our game, along with eleven other finishers, one of who was popular enough to make the Collective Wisdom team.

    Standings
    The table is still very volatile:  the average rise of the Kwiatowski teams was more than 18 places.  The Pirate relinquishes the lead but hangs on to a podium spot.  Other than 4 Kwiatkowski teams(Mellow Velo, Los Brolin, Just Some Guy and Togo), the other re-entry into the top ten is Van Avermaet-dependent All In.

    CQ are still only showing top 10 for Larciano and top 5 for DDWV: bit of a delay before there will be a full update for you to gloat over.

    Race 7: GP Industria & Artigianato - Larciano

    Some of the big point scorers here are expensive GC guy looking to Tirreno-Adriatico, who don't do enough of these races to be a good pick here.  There were, however, some good bargains who performed well, some of whom were selected, and some were missed by us all.


    2nd CARAPAZ MONTENEGRO Richard Antonio   84pts for Joelsim
    4th CATTANEO Mattia   62pts for Geraint Too Fast
    14th ARREDONDO MORENO Julian David   12pts for Joelsim (again) and yours truly.

    96 points moved Joelsim 12 places to 24, 62 points gave Geraint a temporary 10 place hike to 18th, and I had a 2 position bump up to 17th.

    Then I added in:

    Race 8: Dwars door West Vlaanderen
    Like all the other 1.1 races, this event had not enough WT teams to remain in the game next year (unless we change the criteria: I am open to suggestions).

    But it was an interest chase from what I saw, but not one in which our popular pick managed to close down the leaders.  If the race does get dropped next year, it might not make a vast difference.

    2nd  DILLIER Silvan   48pts for Joelsim and Laarsland
    3rd  HANSEN Lasse Norman   40pts for Kjellus and Vladimir
    5th  VAN KEIRSBULCK Guillaume   32pts for   25 teams, including all of those who had another scorer in this race
    10th  KEISSE Iljo   12pts for   Spokenspin
    13th  JANSEN Amund Grøndahl   8pts for Squire   

    Standings
    Winning both events today brought Joelsim from 36th to 14th, and Kjellus remained above him by also having a 10 spot rise through his picks in this race.  Very little change at the top, as this morning's top nine all had Van Keirsbulck and no-one else today: Archieboy didn't, so falls to 15th, as EvansIsTheBest took his tenth place.
