2018-20 Emerging Riders CQ game
« on: December 31, 2017, 22:16 »
Cast your mind back to January 2015.  How many of the following might you have expected to accumulate 900 CQ points or more between then and now?  If you had managed all of them, you would have had the perfect score for the 2015-17 game.  That is the challenge of the Emerging riders Game: what riders who currently have a lifetime total of fewer than 200 CQ points will score best by the end  of 2020?

ROGLIC Primoz
GAVIRIA RENDON Fernando
NAESEN Oliver
LOPEZ MORENO Miguel Angel
MOSCON Gianni
LATOUR Pierre
MARECZKO Jakub
CALMEJANE Lilian
KÜNG Stefan
TORRES AGUDELO Rodolfo Andres
BUCHMANN Emanuel
CLAEYS Dimitri
BETTIOL Alberto
MCLAY Daniel
OOMEN Sam
ANDERSEN Søren Kragh
CAMPENAERTS Victor
BERNAL GOMEZ Egan Arley

Your Team  18 riders, no budget restriction except that which applies to each rider.

Rider Eligibility  Any rider who has a maximum of 199 CQ points through their career, so long as that title is not kept low because of results removed under doping sanctions. Here is a list of some who have appeared on CQ in recent years and are eligible, but it is not exclusive or exhaustive.  When the Main Game and Youth Game teams are announced, I'll try to make a list of riders named therein that are eligible: that might be more manageable than this huge list.


Submitting your team  PM to me, by the end of January (I operate on GMT/UTC), with just the rider names in CQ format.

My team hasn't yet been decided, but I will do it in the next day or two, and will send it to the first manager to submit a team (which seems likely to be Rote Laterne), but I reserve the right to adjust it in the case of a rider emerging Gaviria-like before the deadline.

Scoring CQ points over the next three years, the end of 2020 update being the end.  I might need to be alerted to points from one year  that are deleted the next.  I'll give updates monthly (at least that is the intention)

Entries up to morning of 16th Jan: two weeks (and a day) to go.

    Monsieur Hulot, a new poster at CN, has made a spreadsheet that you may find helpful, totalling CQ scores from 2012 to 2017, and available  here on Dropbox.  On the grounds that likely picks for the Emerging Riders game are unlikely to have scored much before 2012, and with the warning that a few riders have not had their names treated consistently down the years by CQ, I recommend it.

    I've got mine in as well now. Same format as last with only CT riders or lower. Probably the same result at the end of the first year too.

    Still plenty of time for entries, but for those who consider the several thousand rider strong lists of eligible riders a bit intimidating, here is a list of those selected for either the Youth or zero pointer game that are eligible for this one.  There might, of course, be great picks for this game who were either ineligible or overlooked for those games. If you are in a hurry, just harvest 18 names from this list: someone has thought they have some promise.

    I never said it was a recommendation...

    There are many, many riders eligible for this game who were not allowable in either of those games, some of whom are among the 84 riders already selected, but this might help build a long-list for some entrants.
