2019 TdF CQ Game
« on: June 26, 2019, 21:16 »
We are in that strange fortnight that have National Championships and almost nothing else, and a few teams have named their teams, so it must be time to get my spreadsheet dusted off.


Your Team
8 riders, who must all be on the final start list for the Tour, with a maximum total cost of 4000 CQ points. 

Rider cost
Their CQ points for the year to 30th June, as compiled in the download that was made available on the CQ site on Monday 1st.   Their prices, and team selections updated as often as I can, are in a spreadsheet available on Dropbox.

Scoring
Points are won by the top ten on the stage each day (80, 50, 35 down to 1 point for 10th), holding the yellow jersey (20 points a day, but not on the last day) and for the GC (600 for the winner, then 450, 380, 320, 290, down to 160 for 10th, 72 for 20th, 21 for 50th, and 20 for every finisher) and also for the Points and KoM classifications (same scale as the stage points).  I will apply the standings every day, so your projected points can change quite rapidly. 

There is a subsidiary ranking, with points given to teams (on the same 80, 50, 35... scale) each day according to their points gained on the stage.

(For the team time trial, points are divided by 4 and rounded down, and only given to riders who finish in their team's main group, so 20, 12, 8, down to 1 for 7th, and only the top 7 teams)

Entering the game
By PM to me at Velorooms or Cycling News (you can't send a PM at Cycling News if you are a new member, and I'm not sure that I would trust CN on the day of its switchover to a new format on Wednesday) anytime up to the start of the race which is, I believe, noon in Brussels on Saturday 6th July.

Please give riders' names in CQ format (surname, then forename, particular care needed with Spanish, South American, Portuguese and Danish riders); if you use the dropbox spreadsheet with prices, the names are already in the right format.

Please do not add info like team and points in submitting your team: I'll only have to delete those bits, so it is a waste of time for both of us.


If there are any rules that I have forgotten to include here, then precedent applies.

    https://fantasy.letour.fr  I forgot to read the directions which I think were in the Release form.
    But you can make a League for Velorooms.

    The official TdF site legally threatened Velogames out of running its game this time last year too: I recall there were efforts to boycott their game in retaliation.


    They haven't tracked me down yet, though:

    The popularity rankings very from 36% to 87% of the max possible.


    29 of the 59 selected riders are unique picks; one team (but not the bottom of the popularity table) has 4 of them, while 6 have none.

    8 different riders costing 1000 pts + have been chosen.

    You even had 24 points unspent: keep trying more permutations until 12:00 (CET) to use them up if you want to.

    The teams

    38 of them in the end: two of the later entries had overbudget/non-competing rider issues, so I had to do some swapping-in for those managers.  And one team had its cheapestt rdier removed to make the standard eight.

    As usual, teams listed with their riders sorted by price, and unique picks marked with an asterisk.

    Rider picks

    71 riders picked, 105 neglected (including Teunissen)

    32 of the 71 are unique picks (I hope the previous post has 32 asterisks on it)

    The more popular selections are:

    28 (out of 38): BERNAL GOMEZ Egan Arley
    22:ARU Fabio, PORTE Richie
    16: EWAN Caleb
    14: BONNET William, URAN URAN Rigoberto
    13: PAUWELS Serge
    10: BARGUIL Warren
    Although it comes in a bit over budget (4202 pts), I will count these as the Collective Wisdom squad.

    9: KÄMNA Lennard, QUINTANA ROJAS Nairo Alexander
    8: HENAO MONTOYA Sergio Luis, MAS NICOLAU Enric
    7:  FELLINE Fabio, KREUZIGER Roman, LANDA MEANA Mikel, ZABEL Rick

    3:  CUMMINGS Stephen, DE PLUS Laurens, FRAILE MATARRANZ Omar, GESBERT Elie, KELDERMAN Wilco, ROCHE Nicolas, VACHON Florian, VAN GARDEREN Tejay
    2:  BERNARD Julien, CALMEJANE Lilian, COLBRELLI Sonny, DEBUSSCHERE Jens, DOWSETT Alex, MONFORT Maxime, REICHENBACH Sébastien, SAGAN Peter, WISNIOWSKI Lukasz

    Stage 1 From one spelling of Brussels to another.

    So, to remind you, these scores are a mixture of stage points, and projected points for the GC and the sprints and mountains classifications.   I'm only showing those who have been selected.  Sagan's score is made up of 50 stage points for coming second (which cannot be lost, even if he doesn't reach Paris), 450 points for being second in the GC, and 50 for his current second place in the sprints category.  Had anyone picked Teunissen, you would also see 20 points for being race leader.  Every rider has at least 20 points, as that is the reward for finishing.  Given that there were no DNFs today, every team must have at least 160 points: those who have noone in the GC top 50 have that score.

    The team time trial tomorrow will shake this about a bit, and will force me to explain the negative points that will occur and the green points.

    I won't put up the link to Dropbox every day, but the spreadsheet will be in the same place regardless.

    Stage 2 Team Time Trial

    (I had to re-jig the spreadsheet: suddenly realised why I had columns for the early stages before the totals columns, which I had previously "corrected", thinking it was a rationalisation.)

    Stage points today were relatively unimportant, no rider got more than 20 of them (although Teunissen gets another 20 for the yellow jersey).  Far more significant were the changes in projected position: Van Aert was 16th yesterday, with 94 points projected for that position, now he is 2nd, and if he stays there, will have 450 GC placing points.  So he is the biggest improvement of the day.
    However, none of us expect Van Aert to hang on to that podium spot, so he will at some time get negative points: that has already happened for some, most obviously Peter Sagan.  He has dropped from 2nd to 48th, so his projected GC points are now 23, not 450.

    I won't list every rider's point fluctuations every day: I'll choose a cut off depending on how dramatic the stage has been, and I will only show those who have been selected by at least one of our managers.

    VAN AERT Wout   382   for Archieboy
    KRUIJSWIJK Steven   380   for 5 teams
    MARTIN Tony   320   for Otoxiep87
    BERNAL GOMEZ Egan Arley   222   28 teams
    THOMAS Geraint   192   for Ripley
    MAS NICOLAU Enric   108   8
    ZABEL Rick   70   7
    KELDERMAN Wilco   65   3
    KÄMNA Lennard   60   9
    ZAKARIN Ilnur   53   1
    ...
    PASQUALON Andrea   -100   1
    MATTHEWS Michael   -157   1
    TRENTIN Matteo   -208   1
    COLBRELLI Sonny   -260   2
    EWAN Caleb   -360   16
    SAGAN Peter   -427   2


    Daily Scores
    Anyone who had a decent day yesterday courtesy of Ewan or Sagan saw most of those points evaporate today, even if many of us had that mitigated somewhat by the rise of a member of one of the higher placed teams (most commonly Bernal).  That still left a lot of us in negative territory.

    Very close for the honours on the day:

    1   Laarsland   626 (Kruijswijk, Bernal and Zabel, but Debusschere and Garcia lost points) (80 Green points)
    2   Search   624 (Kruijswijk, Bernal and Geschke) (50)
    3   ArchieBoy   620 (Van Aert, Bernal and Van Garderen, but Boasson Hagen) (35)
    4   Carlo_Algatrensig   434  (25)
    5   Ripley   410 (15)
    6   Tobydawq   386 (10)
    7   Josedin   384 (5)
    8   Vladimir   378 (3)
    9   Mellow_Velo   362 (2)

    Green points
    You'll have noticed that the top ten each day have a bracketed number, these are their points towards our minor classification, the green points jersey.  These get totalled every day.  No-one who scored yesterday in this was in today's top ten (the Sagan/Colbrelli/Ewan correction factor), so when the scores for the two days are totalled, we have a lot of drawn placings.

    1   Laarsland   80
    2   Koronin, RattaKuningas   65
    4   Search   50
    5   ArchieBoy, LightBing   35
    7   Carlo_Algatrensig, Googolplex   25
    9   BicycleBoy, Ripley   15

    15   Armchair_Cyclist, Vladimir   3
    17   Mellow_Velo, TotalPackage   2
    19   BikeRacer33, Fauniera   1
    The rest have yet to score.

    Standings
    At least no-one's score is totally dependent on 20 per rider for being outside the top 50 any more.  Don't expect these to be much more of a prediction of the final outcome than the current GC rankings are.
    There again, Archie won the Giro game, and there he is again, on the back of a 20 place jump.  Even that is outdone by Carlo and Search (24 and 28 places respectively)

    I am out tomorrow evening: the update will be late.

    PS  I see there has been a late adjustment on the results, with Sunweb now being given 4th and Katusha 5th.  It only makes a difference of 3 pts give or take for 9 riders, three of whom aren't selected and none of whom are very popular.  I will hope that any differences it would have made to the Daily points would not be relevant to the final Green Jersey classification, rather than re-calculate everything.  Similarly, I note that Julien Simon was 16th in the results table I used for the stage one calculations, but now he is shown as 29th in yesterday's results: that correction was incorporated in his drop of points today.  These things will hopefully all be resolved by Paris.

    However, given how close the top of the daily table was, it turns out that the three extra points given to Rick Zabel were quite significant.  Once those are taken away, Search pips Laarsland to the day's win (by just 1 point), and a 30 point switcharound in the Green points is significant.  Vladimir has 2 of the Sunweb riders (Kamna and Kelderman), and so catches up with Josedin, so they get 4 green points each.

    2 Koronin, RattaKuningas 65

    Stage 3 Champagne version of the Ardennes

    Those who can't cope with a series of short sharp hills fall away, and those who can move up the GC to replace them.  We need to wait until stage 6 removes those who can't deal with longer climbs before the table takes on a really meaningful shape.

    MATTHEWS Michael   268pts for LightBing
    SAGAN Peter   104   for Bicycle Boy and Googolplex
    KELDERMAN Wilco   81   for Carlo Algatrensig, Triley36 and Vladimir

    Green points

    Yellow Knight and Just Some Guy come from no score to the top 10; LightBing has a 1st and a 3rd to secure top spot, and Koronin, Carlo and Bicycle Boy all have a second top ten placing in today's stage.

    Standings

    Archie retains his lead, through unique pick Van Aert, but there are some teams with early momentum behind him: Carlo is up 6 places in 2nd, and BicycleBoy up 7 to 5th, but those are as nothing to LightBing's 27 place move to 7th.

    Tomorrow should see far less change in the GC, and the sprinters we have chosen, or left unchosen, will probably affect the green points more than the main event.

    Now I'm just hoping that ASO don't nullify that 5 second gap between Bernal and Thomas and render all my numbers incorrect.

    Thanks for the swift updates. Is there a chance you include the guaranteed points standing again as there's more fluctuation at the beginning of the tours?

    Stage 4 One for the sprinters

    Far fewer points changes, and the biggest ones, for 1st and 2nd on the day, don't affect our riders:

    Green points
    Total Package already had a couple of points, so the day's win brings 2nd place.  Shalgo and Comodoro get the top ten with their forst points: 6 teams are still waiting for theirs.  At this stage it is odd to score, and yet drop in the table, but Ratta Kuningas manages it.

    Guaranteed points
    I had envisaged the Green points replacing this as the secondary classification, and once the GC rankings take on something resembling its final shape, this should become fairly redundant, but I have been asked for it on both sites:

    Standings

    Small scores mean fewer changes in the rankings: the top 4 are unchanged, Ratta Kuningas and Otoxiep make minor steps forward among the top ten, Googolplex shows up in the top 10, and Total Package gets a 7 position leap forward, the best of the day, even if undramatic compared to the last couple of days.

    Stage 5 Hilly ride through Alsace, main sprinters dropped

    Sagan got a substantial (but probably very temporary) rise through the GC positions today, which was worth more points than the stage win.  Few other substantial changes, as those who dropped away today were, for the most part, already outside the top 50 anyway.

    Given the margin by which he was the biggest scorer of the day, it is no surprise that Sagan is behind the two most significant jumps in position: BicycleBoy and Googolplex getting onto the podium.  But not the biggest jump: BlackBandit has moved up 9.

    Puncheurs have a huge influence on the scores at the moment: I suspect that will not be the case after tomorrow.

    Almost selected Ciccone,  he was so so impressive at Giro.  How he made all those breaks and beat everyone to the top of those climbs when I’d never heard of him before.  Then again I don’t follow Italian riders on Italian Pro Conti squads!  I didn’t think he could replicate it a month later.

    Also just because team average is 500/ per rider doesn’t mean I can have all the high 500 riders TVG, Porte & Ciccone

    Trentin really letting me down.  Sits up stage 4 and doesn’t bike throw on 5.

    Huge changes, including ne sall of more than 30 places.  5 of the top ten weren't in that group yesterday, and those new entries to the top ten have an average jump of more than 12 places.  Del's is the biggest (19 place) move, but the most significant move is of our first-time player from PCM Daily, and new leader, Ripley, who has Geraint Thomas as a unique pick and therefore might, on today's evidence, take some shifting.

    Peter Sagan's third place is enough to bring Bicycle Boy into the lead, while those in 3rd and 4th close the gap to the leaders.  Otoxiep, Rote Laterne, Amis Velo and DJSprtsch are new entries in the top ten, with jumps of 6 to 9 places, but Total Package has gone up by 11: more volatility than I would have expected on such a neutral stage, and testament to how closely bunched most of us still are.

    Stage 8 Hilly transfer to St Etienne

    Apart from stage and KoM rankings, there were quite a few points for moving up as Teuns and Woods slipped down.

    DE GENDT Thomas   125 points for Koronin
    MATTHEWS Michael   63 folr LightBing
    URAN URAN Rigoberto   40   14 teams
    BUCHMANN Emanuel   30 for Josedin
    KRUIJSWIJK Steven   30   5
    TRENTIN Matteo   27   1

    COLBRELLI Sonny   -15   2
    CHEREL Mikael   -16   1
    VAN GARDEREN Tejay   -37   3

    Three teams become the first to register a non-finisher (TJVG): they lose the 37 GC points he was in line for by virtue of the 36th place spot he held on GC, but retain the 2 points he got on stage 2.

    On the day

    Koronin not only had De Gendt as a unique pick, she also had De Marchi in back-up

    1   Koronin   129 (De Gendt and Mas, but Ewan and Colbrelli) (80 green points)

    You have to look down to 7th place before you will find any team that has made progress, and there Del, immediately followed by Fauniera, sit as new teams in the top ten.  Yellow Knight and Squire match Del's 6 place rise, but Koronin outdoes them, jumping 10 spots.

    Stage 9 Unchased breakaway through the Massif Central

    A few of us had those who gained points in the break, a few of us had riders overtaken by those who were in the break, one of us had an unfortunate non-finisher, and a lot of us had nothing at all.

    Ratta (is that a forename?) moves onto the podium, but JSG, coming from way down the table, nearly prevented him from doing so.

    Guaranteed points

    The top 6 here have points from expensive sprinters/puncheurs (Sagan, Groenewegen, Colbrelli, Matthews), so although they have a good margin over the rest of the field here, they are missing out on GC points, and have an average position of about 19th in the main ranking.

    The exception to the low ranking of the teams with high guaranteed scores is found at the top of the table.  Bicycle Boy retains his place, as do the rest of yesterday's top six.  On a day of low scores, DJSprtsch and Just Some Guy make Roche-powered jumps of 6 and 7 places respectively into the top ten.
