    Evenepoel is on the way of being ineligible next year. I make the bold prediction DJW, Leadbelly and I won't win this edition.

    The leader is the top scorer of the month, and so Skidmark's lead stretches from 31 to 162.  The highest placed mover is Squire, and DJW and Flo have also risen within the top ten, with Hakkie and Vladimir joining the top ten.  Laarsland has an 11 place boost.

    Year 1, Month 6 3rd to 30th June

    Our first big win of the season, and the hype that 90% believed is looking true.

    EVENEPOEL Remco      297 (Overall GC, with a stage win, leader points, plus third in national ITT and Limbirg Hammer team win) for 28 teams
    LEKNESSUND Andreas      124 (National TT Champ, and 2nd in the road race, and Course de la Paix stage and GC wins) for Alykaptan, Lukas CPH and Squire
    VAN ROOY Kenneth      87 (8th in national RR and lots of small point hauls) for DJW
    LEYDER Pit      78 (12th in Tour of Lux and 3rd in national RR) for Joelsim
    RODRIGUEZ GARAICOECHEA Oscar      74 (10th in Occitanie, 8th in Mt Ventoux, 7th in national ITT)   9 teams
    BUDYAK Anatoliy      56   1
    HAYTER Ethan      50   6
    LARSEN Niklas      50   2
    OURSELIN Paul      50   1

    but we all missed Daniel Munoz, winner of the Tour of Bihor, and Filippo Zaccanti, winner of the Tour of Korea, both outscoring all bar Evenepoel this month.

    1   AlyKaptan   690 (Evenepoel, Leknessund, Rodriguez and Larsen)
    2   Squire   662 (Evenepoel, Leknessund and Hayter)
    3   LukasCPH   623  (Evenepoel, Leknessund, Ourselin and Larsen)
    4   Joelsim   613  (Evenepoel and Leyder)

    31   RoteLaterne   166
       CollectiveWisdom   497
       CollectiveIgnorance   918

    Standings

    Top scorer in June, and he was already in second: AlyKaptan takes the lead.  Squire leapfrogs Ludwigzgz to move 3rd, and behind that nearly everyone moves up as DJW suffers an Evenepoel related drop from 5th to 16th: he would be right up among the leaders if he hadn't been so resistant to the hype.  But none rise so rapidly as Joelsim, up 6 places and into the top ten.

    I believe Paul Ourselin is the only rider selected in this who is riding the Tour de France, so we will have to look outside the hexagon for our July points. 

    Can't be sure when I am travelling, so July, for the purposes of our emergent games, might end on the 28th, or might end on 4th August: hopefully one of those two.

    Until then, here's the spreadsheet.

    Leknessund and Bagioli look soooo good... Two more that were in my pre-list. Finally I chose other two '99 guys, Donovan and Arensman, who are having an awful season so far, with injuries and health problems.

    I'm away from my laptop for a few days, so the update won't be for the first Monday as I usually try.  Will probably do a mid August update, and then late September (after the Vuelta).  Same applies to the other two current editions.

    Year 1, Month 7-8a 1 July to 11 August

    Waiting until next year to pick Evenepoel really didn't work out for three teams

    EVENEPOEL Remco      325 pts (San Sebastian win, Euro ITT win, Adriatica stage win and top ten overall)   28 teams
    RIVERA SERRANO Kevin      145 (Sibiu Tour win and stage)       13

    PARET-PEINTRE Aurélien      49   5

    Joao Rodrigues and Daniel Munoz both got over 100, to the benefit of none of us.

    Skidmark was 2nd at the end of June, but top scorer this period, and 300 points more than the previous leader, gives a vert healthy looking lead at this stage. Joelsim and Vladimir make progress within the top ten, and Armchair Cyclist jumps 10 places to the heights of mid-table obscurity.

    I even had Higuita on my team, but dropped him at the last minute because he didn't have a team for 2019 (yet) and I couldn't find anything definite on the #ef contract.

    Year 1, Month 8b-9 12 August to 29 September (sorry, I know that the data is a week old, but I don't want to get the three games out of synch)

    LARSEN Niklas      218 points (Tour of Denmark win and stage points, Lillehammer win) for Alykaptan and LukasCPH
    RODRIGUEZ GARAICOECHEA Oscar      212 (2nd in Vuelta a Burgos, 22nd in Vuelta a Espana) for 9 teams
    HIGUITA GARCIA Sergio Andres      211 (Stage win and 14th on GC in Vuelta, 4th in U23 WRR)  for DJW, Ludwigzgz and Skidmark

    Vladimir picked Cherkasov for the 2017/19 and 2018/20 editions, but had given up on him by the time this one came around, and no-one else picked him up either, but he got 201 this session.

    The top two consolidate their positions by being the top two this time.  Ludwigzgz has moved up one place, and Hakkie three, but more dramatically Madrazo charges into the top ten with a 7 place rise, and Karaev is up 10 places.

    No Trudgin this year, so it'll be harder to keep off the foot of the table for another two years.

    Considering we have only had the first year, that lead of Skidmark's is getting serious.  Nit many significant scorers, so no-one moved up more than one place: Flo and Hugo did so within the top ten.

    I'll do an end of year update for the few remaining races, and any adjustments.  Until then, consider whether it is worth recycling any of your less successful riders in this game in the 2020-2022 edition.

    Year 1 Months 11 & 12 28 October to the end of the year.

    Not much happening:
    LYU Xianjing got 68 points, mainly for 4th in GC in the Tour of Fuzhou, benefiting 4 teams (Fauniera, Jon Ezeitza, Josedin and Ludwigzgz)
    CULEY Marcus earned 55 points for Leadbelly with almost ridiculous domination of the Tour of Selangor
    and ROCHAS Rémy picked up 3 points for Flo when Yonathan Monsalve was disqualified from July's Tour of Qinghai Lake.

    Fauniera somehow made a 4 place jump up the table from that little end of season bonus: maybe more importantly, Ludwigzgz moves up one to second place at the end of year 1. Leadbelly, at the other end of the table, also gains a place.

    Best Possible team
    The scoring has been dominated by two riders, one of who was selected by all but three managers, the other by only three.  Having both of them is a big reason why Skidmark and Ludwigzgz are the top two in the standings, and having neither of them is largely why Leadbelly and Rote Laterne are in the bottom three.  But looking at the best possible team, 11 of the 18 were not selected by anyone (maybe the ones we picked will come through in years 2 and 3)
    EVENEPOEL Remco      952 pts   28 teams (out of 31)
    HIGUITA GARCIA Sergio Andres      914   3
    RODRIGUEZ GARAICOECHEA Oscar      401   9
    VALTER Attila      361   0
    AFFINI Edoardo      358   15

    NOVIKOV Savva      264   0
    AULAR SANABRIA Orluis Alberto      243   0
    SWIRBUL Keegan      232   0

    That team would have 6734 points thus far: Skidmark's score represents 64.3% of that, about the middle of year one leaders as a %age of perfection in the game's short history.

    Between us, we chose 12 riders last year who haven't scored a single point in 2019: 2 of them were chosen by more than 10 of us.  They, and lots of others who did less well than we might have hoped, are still eligible for the 2020-22 edition, now open for entries, as are hundreds of other riders with dreams of emerging over the next 3 years into the elite.

    Where you have gone right or wrong.

    Quote from: PM to Armchair in January 2019
    Hello once more,

    apparently Higuita isn't on the EF roster for 2019 after all. At least, he's never been announced by the team ...
    Only found out just now. With that in mind, I'd like to exchange him for Harry Tanfield.
    :fp :angry :fp

    I blame Vaughters and his late announcements. :P :lol

    Year 2, Month 1 to 2nd February

    If  Evenepoel and Higuita hadn't had the 2019 that they had, I would say that Year 2 is when the best riders of the cohort begin to make themselves factors in bigger events.  Those two feature again, as does one of the most popular picks other than Evenepoel, but some interesting unique/rare pick performances too.

    Top January scorers:
    EVENEPOEL Remco      210 (San Juan stage and GC wins)    28 teams
    MOSCHETTI Matteo      160 (winning both Challenge Majorca sprint races)   25
    TESFATSION Natnael Ocbit      130 (stage and GC wins in Tropicale Amissa Bongo) for Leadbelly
    HIGUITA GARCIA Sergio Andres      100 (Colombian national RR win)   DJW, Ludwigzgz and Skidmark
    FLOREZ LOPEZ Miguel Eduardo      95 (stage win and 5th on GC in San Juan)   Blues in the Bottle and Madrazo
    CULEY Marcus      62 (3rd (RR) and 7th (ITT) in Aussie nationals)   Leadbelly again
    DAINESE Alberto      50 (3rd in Race Torquay)   14 teams

    Having topped the last three full updates, Skidmark can only manage 2nd this time around.  Has the decline set in?

    1   Madrazo   625 (Evenepoel, Moschetti, Florez, Dainese)
    2   Skidmark   589 (Evenepoel, Moschetti, Higuita, Dainese)
    3   Ludwigzgz   535 (Evenepoel, Moschetti, Higuita)
    4   Blues_in_the_Bottle   524 (Evenepoel, Moschetti, Florez)
    5   HugoKoblet   514 (Evenepoel, Moschetti, as have the next 17 in the table)
    6   SafeBet   505
    7   Karaev   490

    That lead keeps growing, as does Ludwigzgz' claim on second place.  Is there a rider out there who these two have missed out on that will emerge to make up for another team not having Higuita between now and the end of next year?  If not, these monthly comments are going to be even more repetitive than they have become.

    Madrazo moves up 2 places to 4th, Karaev is into the top ten, and BitB moves up 4 places.

    Year 2, Month 3 (and to month 5, at least) 2nd to 14th March, or 2nd March to end of May, or sometime)

    HIGUITA GARCIA Sergio Andres      214 (3rd in Paris-Nice, with stage pts and Pts classification)   DJW, Ludwigzgz and Skidmark
    CULEY Marcus      66 (3rd in Tour of Taiwan)   Leadbelly

    WAERENSKJOLD Søren      38 (Won Tour of Rhodes and 2 stages)   Jon Ezeitza and Josedin
    PARET-PEINTRE Aurélien      18  (GC points from Paris Nice) for 5 teams

    Standings
    Higuita is now only 11 points behind Evenepoel in points gained in this game (and they are both more than 900 clear of the next best), so the two teams that have both dominate, and DJW overtakes some Evenepoel teams in rising 4 places, the biggest shift in this period. Vladimir in 13th is the highest placed to have changed position.

    Standings
    After the long gap, the 6 teams behind all close the gap on Skidmark, although maybe it is only the ose 2nd and third who he really has to watch out for.  There were only a few dozen points in this period between all those teams (and any other that had both Deceuninck Burgos youngsters), and Flo and Hakkie both move up one (past Kazistuta, who missed Almeida), and Del makes the biggest (3 place) move.

    Standings

    Skidmark had Fedeli and Vingegaard to prevent him having a disastrous month, but thoroughly outscored and he relinquishes the Lead that he has had since last August.  Other than Ludwigzgz going top, the notable progessions are Flo rising two places, Kryvo nudging into the top ten, and SafeBet managing a 6 place jump.

    We will have a few months without Evenepoel dominating the scoring, but I doubt the teams that chose to leave him out will make that big an inroad into the deficit they have brought upon themselves.  Otherwise, this is not the season for predictions about what might happen in the autumn.
