    The Final Event

    Race 20: Liege-Bastogne-Liege


    There were scenarios around good, but not impossible, performances from Teuns and Haas that might have seen a change in the outcome of the game, but it didn't happen. 

    Instead, the rider who has been the most popular of the big scorers was again our main scorer.

    KWIATKOWSKI Michal   3rd, 145 pts for 7 teams
    ALBASINI Michael   7th, 90 pts for 2 teams
    VAN AVERMAET Greg   54 pts for 1 team
    FELLINE Fabio   32 pts for 3 teams
    SIMON Julien   28pts   3 teams
    VANENDERT Jelle   26   1
    TEUNS Dylan   16   11
    FRAILE MATARRANZ Omar   14   1
    VUILLERMOZ Alexis   7   2
    plus 15 five point finishers

    Points today
    1   MellowVelo   182 (Kwiatkowski, Felline and 1 fiver)

    13 teams failed to score.

    Final standings

    Just Some Guy took the lead after race 11 (Dwars voor Vlaanderen), and has stayed there ever since.
    Kazistuta hung on for 2nd, and top score on the day gets Mellow Velo, just, onto the podium.  A final burst gats Los Brolin into the final top ten.  The consolation to those in the crowded mid-table that is a mention as top riser of the day, is shared this final time by Comodoro and DJW.

    The Spring season has been dominated by 5 riders:
    Sagan (who was beyond a team budget)
    Valverde (much of his dominance was in stage races and therefore no advantage here, and he would have been a very expensive pick given that these races are not his main source of points),
    Van Avermaet (who seemed prohibitively expensive, but one team didn't think so)
    Gilbert (who proved a very good unique pick)
    and Kwiatkowski (by far the best value of these in points/cost balance, and chosen by all the top 4)

    The top ten consists of the teams that had Van Avermaet and Gilbert as unique picks, the 7 teams with Kwiatkowski, and Shalgo, who managed 7th place without any of the big 5.

    Congratulations to JSG on his win, and to Kazistuta and Mellow Velo for their podium positions; thanks to everyone else for your interest and participation.

    HANSEN Lasse Norman   46   50   2
    DE WITTE Matthias   1   26   0
    BUDDING Martijn   32   25   0


    That extraordinary bit of insight could have given a team in profit, with 3190 points.

    Impeccable picks:

    VAN AVERMAET Greg   2279   1331   1
    KWIATKOWSKI Michal   611   803   7
    DEGENKOLB John   550   358   34

    {CARRETERO MILLAN Hector   0   15   0

    Here is the spreadsheet on Dropbox if you want to do any further analysis, see where your team went wrong, or see if you can calculate a better best possible team.


    I should have had GP de Denain as part of the game: it was 1.HC but I hadn't noticed its promotion.  None of the 1.1 races this year met my threshhold of having 6 WT teams competing (poss because of other races having been promoted to WT), so I envisage none of them being in the game next year, so it is due to be the 17 1.HC or above races, and possibly any others that get date shifted into the scope of the game (as Lugano date shifted out of it this year).  If you have any proposals otherwise, let's hear them.
