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 Teams up to up to the original deadline: about ten hours from the datestamp on this post, but your team can't be checked (Bit of an extension, see latest post).

    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.

    So far I have received 19 teams (listed in the opening post), including 5 who were not in the previous edition.  Between them they have chosen 94 different riders in whom to invest their hopes, 42 of whom are unique picks, and 8 are on more than half the teams. 

    The current Collective Wisdom selection would have a popularity score of 172, while the popularity range for the entered teams ranges from 158 to 48.

    You have until the last instant of January (UK time/UTC) to submit or adjust your team: that is 3 days 11 hours and 17 minutes by the timestamp of this post lest there be any time-zone confusion.

    So there has been a bit of a family emergency arise, and I am going to head directly from work to a relative 2 1/2 hours away tomorrow, and won't be back until late: too late to start formatting and posting teams and calculating popularity data.  It also means that I won't be able to check eligibility of the teams that come in between 8am and midnight. (Teams listed in the OP are checked and all OK)

    So if you send your team in tomorrow (unless very early) you wouldn't have any chance to change your team (if necessary).  I will therefore extend until midday (UK time) on Thursday so that if my late night check on Wednesday reveals any problems they can be changed until then.  And so I may as well allow entries until midday Thursday if you are happy to run the risk of riders being rejected, and I'll ask all to hold off until then on releasing your teams.  I will do the usual team listings and number crunching late afternoon/early evening on Thursday.
    ;
    Short version: Deadline is midnight if you hope I'll check it, or noon Thursday if you are confident you will get it right. No publishing teams until Thurs afternoon (all times GMT)

    So here we go:

    No new entries during the extension, but one team made a couple of changes, and another decided to join the rest of us in having 18 riders.

    34 teams it is then, and here they are, alphabetically sorted.  As usual, unique picks, 52 of them, indicated by an asterisk.

    The January effect
    There is always a bit of a January races effect in this game, and although I didn't keep a strict record, there were some definite shifts in emphasis.

    Hodeg and Ganna were both fairly popular even before the San Juan race, although Ganna did increase his proportion of teams and prompted a couple of swaps. Najar, not surprisingly, was not in any teams until he had a guaranteed 142 points.  Even if he does nothing else for 3 years, he would probably not be the lowest scoring rider on most teams.

    Madouas looked like he was going to be a unique pick until he got a flurry of support after La Marseillaise, and although most entries came in long after the Vuelta a Tachira, Sosa received several late selections and overhauled Rivera who had been well ahead of him on picks.

    Some riders became more or less relatively popular even without having raced in January.  McNulty became popular from a very low start, Riabushenko was popular, but always behind Jakobsen and Narvaez until the last day or two, and Eg was ahead of everyone for most of January, but not as fancied in the late rush.

    Kicking yourself or gloating
    Bjerg is the rider I am most annoyed at myself for missing: not sure how I let him slip under my radar.  Who is your facepalm rider?

    And who is an absolute banker for being successful in the course of the three years (let's define that as definitely over 1000 points over the three years: that should assure him of being one of the best possible 18)?

    Have another go?
    Last year Albanese was almost universally selected, this year he is on just over half the teams.  Should a rider (any rider, not just Albanese) be considered a failure who lacks the potential he was thought to have if he is still eligible a year later; or is it a great opportunity to harvest year 4 scores for a rider who would probably have been good enough  just on the basis of his first three senior years?  And likewise, is it worth passing over a rider in the hope that you will be able to select him next year?

    The January effect
    I only started picking my team this week (yes, really).
    Filippo Ganna would have been high up on the list anyway, but his performance in San Juan ensured that he was 100% in.
    Najar I wouldn't have dreamt of including, and his San Juan performance, if anything, only dissuaded me more.
    The Antipodean rider picked up their usual early-season points, and though I picked two Aussies, that was based on their year-round point-scoring potential (though those first couple of points don't hurt).

    Kicking yourself or gloating
    Looking at the popularity ranking, I'm pretty satisfied. All 18 riders in the Collective Wisdom were on my shortlist, and I picked eight of them. The other ten I chose to leave out for various reasons: I expect them to not score highly in what's often their neo-pro year or another year on the U23 circuit, meaning that they should still be available next year. Sometimes I had to pick between two riders and went with the one where I had more belief he'd break the 200-point barrier (and yes, that includes Brendon Davids; just you see).
    Other times, I picked riders closer to home over those I'm not as familiar with - there's a reason I have six Danes.
    I have to say that I'm astounded that Gregaard and Vingegaard are unique picks. But I certainly don't mind!

    The most-popular rider that slipped below my radar is #movistar Jaime Castrillo. Until today, I've genuinely never heard of the guy. He'll probably go on to win Burgos, Avenir & a half-dozen other races in 2018 now that I've said that before taking Catalunya & Route du Sud in 2019 and his maiden Vuelta in 2020. :lol

    And there's probably a handful of riders that none of us picked who will develop into world-beaters within the next three years. But as long as nobody else spotted their potential, I'm fine with that. :P

    Have another go?
    I wouldn't consider such a rider a failure. However, I would very much consider my picking him the year before an act of stupidity. In this game, I'm ruthless: I don't want to identify the next trusty domestique who picks up 40-60 CQ points every year. I want to pick the next world-beater. So if I pick a rider and he then dabbles along for the first two of the three years before finally scoring >400 points in year 3, that was just not a great pick.

    Though it would still be a better pick than Andrea Zordan whom I chose ahead of the 2014 season and who went on to score a total of five points in the following three seasons, retiring at the end of 2016. :fp :D

    Year 1 Month 1 and up to 4th February


    The highest January scorers who were picked for our game (some of them were even picked before they scored their points)

    NAJAR Gonzalo Joaquin      142pts for GC win and a stage stage in San Juan for Fauniera and Hakkie
    GANNA Filippo      91pts from 3rd in GC and other points in San Juan for 23 teams
    HAMILTON Chris      69pts for 6th in Aussie Championships, 16th in TDU and some for CERORR   8 teams
    DLAMINI Nicholas      55pts, mainly for winning KoM at TDU for AmisVelo, DJW and Trudgin
    WARLOP Jordi      39pts   3 teams
    MADOUAS Valentin      33   10
    BASSO Leonardo      32   4
    EG Niklas      28   21

    Resulting in these points (no need for separate standings and monthly points at this stage)

    1   Fauniera   318 (Mainly from Najar, Ganna and Madouas)
    2   Hakkie2   288 (Najar and Ganna)
    2   Blues_in_the_Bottle   288 (Ganna, Hamilton, Madouas and Basso)
    4   Kryvo   273 (same main scorers as BitB)
    5   Scrooll07   247
    6   TheAsian   237
    7   Skidmark   230
    8   AlyKaptan   228
    9   Kazistuta   219
    10   AmisVelo   218
    11   LukasCPH   214
    12   JonEzeitza   212
    13   DJW   199
    14   Joelsim   188
    15   Laarsland   181
    16   Flo   179
    17   Shalgo   172
    18   HugoKoblet   166
    19   Squire   153
    20   Cordi333   149
    21   Armchair_Cyclist   148
    22   Ludwigzgz   136
    23   Vladimir   131

    32   LosBrolin   43
    33   Karaev   34
    34   Leadbelly   27
       CollectiveWisdom   153

    At least we are all off the mark (and the spreadsheet works)

    There will always be those who we all managed to miss.  You might have riders in your team who by the end of three years have still scored less than the likes of:
    PHOUNSAVATH DESTRIBOIS Alex Ariya      113 from Tour of Indonesia
    HARPER Chris      101 from Aussie nationals and Herald Sun
    KIPKEMBOI Salim      101 from Sharjah and Tropicale Amissa Bongo
    CHAWCHIANGKUANG Peerapol      100 also Tour of Indonesia

    And the spreadsheet is here, and its updates will be here each month though I might not always publish the link.

    *la Phounsavath & *th Chawchiangkuang aren't going to become grand pros, I think. Winning and placing in the Tour of Indonesia will most likely be the pinnacle of their careers (as winning San Juan will be the pinnacle of Najar's career - provided he even keeps that).

    But missing *au Harper & *ke Kipkemboi might come back to haunt us - if only in the bragging rights game.

    Indeed: I'm not saying that our lengthily named friends are going to be stars of the game, but in the recently finished 2015-17 edition, there were an average of >2.25 riders per team who got less than 100 points in the entire game.  Only 5 of 33 teams had no-one in that category.  So even if this pair score nothing more this side of 2021, they might prove to be better picks than at least one rider in your team, or mine, or any other (probably better than several of mine).

    Standings

    Blues in the Bottle shows early consistency in the game, 2nd in each of the 2 summaries so far and so leading the way.  Scrool07 had also done pretty well in January, before this monthly win, and is second overall at this early stage.  Hugo Koblet was the highest (9 place) riser, and Laarsland the only other to enter the top ten.

    Year 1, month 3 5th March to 1st April

    Three big scorers this month, but all three among our most popular picks.

    HODEG CHAGUI Alvaro Jose      190 (won Handzame and a stage in Catalunya)    22 teams
    JAKOBSEN Fabio      155   (Handzame win) 27 teams
    PHILIPSEN Jasper      132   (3rd in dreidaagse, won the triptique: I'm guessing his lucky number is 3) 21 teams
    DAVIDS Brendon      62 for Lukas CPH
    WELTEN Bram      59 pts   10 teams
    TURGIS Tanguy      54   3

    13 teams have all three of those popular picks, three of us have none of them.

    1   Karaev   690 (Hodeg, Jakobsen, Philipsen and Welten)
    2   TheAsian   651 (Hodeg, Jakobsen, Philipsen and Welten)
    3   Comodoro   644 (Hodeg, Jakobsen, Philipsen and Turgis)
    4   Kryvo   638 (Hodeg, Jakobsen, Philipsen and Turgis)
    5   Skidmark   622 (Hodeg, Jakobsen, Philipsen and Welten)

    Standings

    The Asian moves up from 6th to take the lead, and is sweating under two yellow jerseys, as he also leads the 2017-19 version.  Kryvo was immediately ahead of him, now immediately behind in second, having dislodged Scrool, who hangs onto his podium place ahead of Skidmark, who makes an impressive jump from 12th.  Also bursting into the top ten are Flo, on the back of a 7 place rise, and Ludwigzgz, whose 10 place rise is matched only by monthly winner Karaev.

    Last Monday passed me by without my noticing it was the first Monday (normal update schedule), and this week looks rather busy for me.  Working on these three games during the build up to, and in the duration of, the TdF game is likely to be impossible if I am to maintain a marriage. So with your forbearance (or, frankly, without it), I'll do an early-May to mid-June 'month' next week, and another 6 week 'month' ending on the first Monday of August.  Hopefully we will be back on schedule thereafter (though I won't promise that any update due mid Vuelta won't also be postponed). 

    This applies equally to the 2016-18 and 2017-19 editions.  If you feel I have seriously undermined your enjoyment of the games, I will reimburse 25% of your entry fee if you send me the receipt.

    Enjoy the additional tension waiting to see how you have done.
