The rider stats

Here are those 130 riders, except for the 55 unique picks indicated with an asterisk in the lists above.
There are 31 teams, and the three who do not buy into the hype for Evenepoel are DJW, Leadbelly and Rote Laterne.

28:  EVENEPOEL Remco
25:  DEWULF Stan, MOSCHETTI Matteo
16:  ALMEIDA Joao Pedro Gonçalves, VAN DEN BERG Julius
15:  AFFINI Edoardo, HÄNNINEN Jaakko
14:  ARENSMAN Thymen, DAINESE Alberto
13:  RIVERA SERRANO Kevin
12:  BENNETT Sean, CONCI Nicola, HONORE Mikkel Frølich, JOHANSEN Julius, WILLIAMS Stephen
11:  FABBRO Matteo, OSORIO CARVAJAL Alejandro
That is 17 names so far, so to complete the Collective Wisdom team, I will be taking an average of the scores of the three riders with nine picks each:
9:  BAGIOLI Andrea, RODRIGUEZ GARAICOECHEA Oscar, VACEK Karel
8:  BARCELO ARAGON Fernando, DE DECKER Alfdan, TANFIELD Harry, VANHOUCKE Harm, VILLALOBOS HERNANDEZ Luis Ricardo
7:  BOUCHARD Geoffrey
6:  BARBIER Pierre, CIMA Imerio, GROVES Kaden, HAYTER Ethan, MUÑOZ LANCHEROS Cristian Camilo, OLIVEIRA Rui Filipe Alves
5:  CASTRILLO ZAPATER Jaime, CHAMPOUSSIN Clément, GREGAARD WILSLY Jonas, MÜLLER Patrick, PARET-PEINTRE Aurélien, PIDCOCK Thomas, VINGEGAARD RASMUSSEN Jonas
4:  DE BOD Stefan, DONOVAN Mark, LYU Xianjing, MACIEJUK Filip, THIJSSEN Gerben, WHELAN James
3:  BADILATTI Matteo, FOSS Tobias Svendsen, GIBSON Matthew, HIGUITA GARCIA Sergio Andres, LEKNESSUND Andreas, LONARDI Giovanni, MÄRKL Niklas, PEAK Barnabas, PRONSKIY Vadim, STEIMLE Jannik, WARLOP Jordi
2:  BATTISTELLA Samuele, BYRIEL IVERSEN Rasmus, CONTRERAS PINZON Rodrigo, ERRAZKIN PEREZ Xuban, FLOREZ LOPEZ Miguel Eduardo, GALL Felix, GARCIA SOSA Jhojan Orlando, KOOISTRA Marten, LARSEN Niklas, MAYRHOFER Marius, MERTZ Rémy, NORSGAARD JØRGENSEN Mathias, QUINN Sean, RUBIO REYES Einer Augusto, SCOTSON Callum, SEIGLE Romain, VAN MOER Brent, VINCENT Léo, WAERENSKJOLD Soren


De Wulf was neck and neck with Evenepoel in the popularity for a long time (and actually overtook him briefly), Moschetti caught up with him only with the later teams.
Dainese ended up making the Collective Wisdom team, but it is as though there was some lobbying going on: with about half the teams in, he was still a unique pick.
There were two late swap-outs of Higuita, with his non-appearance in the EF team listing, but one manager swapped him into the team on that revelation.

Of course, popularity is even less of a guarantee in this game than in the other CQ games: In the three editions that have finished so far, the following have been among the best 18 picks that could have been made, but were not picked at all, or by 3 or fewer teams: THEUNS Edward, BENOOT Tiesj, VUILLERMOZ Alexis, LAMPAERT Yves, NAESEN Oliver, ROGLIC Primoz(twice), LOPEZ MORENO Miguel Angel, MOSCON Gianni, CALMEJANE Lilian, OOMEN Sam, ANDERSEN Søren Kragh, CAMPENAERTS Victor, BERNAL GOMEZ Egan Arley (twice), ACKERMANN Pascal, VAN AERT Wout, MAS NICOLAU Enric, CARAPAZ MONTENEGRO Richard Antonio and several others, while the Collective Wisdom team has featured such disappointments (at least to the end of their respective games) as Alex Peters, Andrea Zordan, Frederick Ludwigsson, Campbell Flakemore, and Vincenzo Albanese (twice)

Nestling in there among the 5 pick riders is Aurelian Paret Peintre, who is the Carlos Betancur of this game as someone who managers keep coming back to, having been on at least one team each year since the 2015-17 edition.

Honestly, look at those riders that could've been picked, that weren't.

We're supposed to be cycling fans and yet Lopez, Bernal (twice)....what the flipity flip are we all on?
