2020 Youth CQ Ranking Game

Youth CQ Ranking Game 2020

Ciao fellow Veloroomies, welcome to the eighth annual Youth CQ Ranking Manager Game. This game allows you to showcase your knowledge of upcoming youngsters, and hopefully take a gamble on a couple of really young riders.
Originally this game was invented by mc_mountain, based on Hugo Koblet's CQ Ranking Manager Game.

Your task is to create a team with 12-15 riders at 1000 CQ points to get the best possible return.

1. How the game works

1.1. Duration
The season starts when the first race is held (Australian Road Cycling Championships 8 January 2020) and ends when the last major race (.1 or higher) is held. The winner will be crowned when the next update after the last major race (x.1) is out - submissions can be made to extend the season to include late season smaller races, should there be potential for them to affect the top placings. A victor can be declared earlier if there is no prospect of the leader being overhauled.

1.2. Updates
My aim is to have an update every 2 weeks. I would greatly appreciate some help from other participants. If you are interested in doing an update every now and then, let me know via PM!

2. On doping
Hopefully doping will have much less of an impact on this game, but the Main game rules will apply.

3.Submitting your team

3.1. How do I?
You pick between 12 and 15 riders whose combined value doesn’t exceed 1000 points and submit your team to me via PM (either on CN forum or on Velorooms forum). Please be sure to use the naming format as found on cqranking.com and only send me your riders' names, not their scores etc. Please also be wary of any spaces or other characters after your riders’ names. I will try to correct all mistakes but some could slip through.

Example of how to send in your team:
GAVIRIA RENDON Fernando
DE PLUS Laurens
MAMYKIN Matvey
etc...

3.2. Eligibility
Riders need to fit one of the following two main criteria
i) be a first year professional rider (of any age), be it at World Tour or Professional Continental team.
ii) be riding at Continental level or lower, born in 1995 or younger, without having previously ridden as a professional.

Important new rule:
In the past there was some discussion about the definition of a first year professional rider, especially due to the distinction between stagiaires and 'officially signed' riders. Formerly the rule was that traineeship/riding as a stagiaire didn't qualify as professional experience, no matter how many times a rider was a stagiaire. For contracts signed halfway through the season the rule was that any contract signed August or later wasn't considered professional experience. It was brought to my attention by Armchair Cyclist last year that perhaps it is a bit arbitrary to allow stagiaires that joined late July, but not allow riders that signed an official contract late July. On top of that, search unearthed information that states contracts signed after 1st of July are different from contracts signed before July.

For that reason, the new rule regarding criterion i) be a first year professional rider, is:
* Riders who have only raced at Pro level as trainees/stagiaires or signed their first Pro contract after July 1st of the previous year can be considered first -year professionals

If you are unsure about the eligibility of a rider, feel free to PM me.

In previous years, the rules included an “encouragement” to include riders from several age categories, this encouragement has been scrapped to avoid any confusion.

Deadline
You can submit your team as of right now. The deadline for submission is January 7th, at noon i.e. 12:00 CET(http://www.timebie.com/timelocal/centraleuropean.php) which means you'll still have some time after the main game submission deadline to get your team together for this game.
After this deadline, team submissions will no longer be accepted. I will then process all teams, which includes checking eligibility. If I encounter an issue with your team, e.g. you've included the same rider twice, you are over budget or a rider you selected is not eligible, I will contact you via PM and give you the opportunity to correct the mistake before January 8th 20:00 CET. If after this deadline, you haven't yet gotten back to me, or there is still an issue with your team, I will:
i) in case you are over the budget, remove a rider to bring you under the budget. This will be the cheapest available rider on your team whose removal will bring you to or under the budget;
ii) in case you selected too many riders, remove the cheapest available rider from your team;
iii) in case of ineligibility, remove the ineligible rider.


I would like to ask the participants to delay the big reveal of their teams until after the January 8th deadline.


Best of luck to all! :)


Important: please read paragraph 3.2 regarding eligibility to find information about a rule change.


Also important, but not important enough to warrant a larger font: as I wrote in the 2019 thread, I probably will be out of the country in the second half of 2020 and unable to do any updates. So I will collect all entries and do the updates for the first half of the year, but after that we'll have to figure something out.

    Whew, I should be all caught up now. I got so many messages over the last 24 hours! There are 38 of us now, which is actually exactly the same as last year. Still a little over 12 hours to go till the submission deadline, so let's go one better at least ;)

    Important: if you submitted a team but do not see your name in the 2nd post of this thread, please contact me

    Only 25 minutes until the submission deadline. Please delay the reveal of your team until the revision deadline, tomorrow at 20:00 CET as I'm still waiting for some revisions. Up to that deadline I will also accept new entries at my discretion.



    We have 47 players now, with 21 entered in the last 30 hours or so :P



    Please check the 2nd post in this thread to see if your name is on the list.

    My team page suggests that Meeus is a unique pick Flo, but Madrazo also has him.

    Naturally Flo has no Kometa riders again, but I ride to the rescue with Marton Dina. :P

    DAINESE Alberto

    If you're playing to win, an essential pick. Youth game or main tbh.

    CHAMPOUSSIN Clément

    Not starting till April with the WT team. Showed enough as a stagiaire to see that he should turn a profit anyways.

    VAHTRA Norman

    A good signing for the team (I think he'll be a good leadout), but probably not for CQ this year.

    DINA Marton

    132 is a lot for a CT rider, but he should be their leader in all races.

    EEKHOFF Nils

    Forget the Worlds. Fast finish, powerful TT and not bad in the classics. Lots of potential sources of points. Like Dainese, essential for both teams really.

    FIORELLI Filippo

    Late developer in cycling terms. Showed in his short time at Nippo that there could be more improvements.

    SCHELLING Ide

    He was my last rider and I had ~50 points left.

    KRIEGER Alexander

    Have to see how he fits into the Alpecin food chain. Probably nearer the bottom than top, but could still get enough opportunities.

    BAIS Davide

    His brother looks good, but a bit more expensive. Should have more chances this year with others leaving the team.

    CEPEDA ORTIZ Jefferson Alexander

    Not convinced he'll score big this year, but he should be fun to watch.

    PEAK Barnabas

    No standout classics men at Mitchelton now = freedom for Barnabas

    NONNEZ Théo

    I remember him being bigged up somewhere. Can't remember where or how exactly...

    VERMEERSCH Florian

    Joining the main Lotto team in June. Had a crazy run of late season form in 2019.

    RENARD Alexis

    Probably out of his depth at WT this year. Might drop down to the devo team to get some results.

    TORRES BARCELO Albert

    Inteja represent! Bound to pick up something in the one of the SSSRs.

     -------------------------------------

    Four double digit popular picks (Dainese, Champoussin, Eekhoof and Cepeda).

    Four unique picks (Vahtra, Dina, Fiorelli and Bais).

    Ah, something must have gone wrong while copying teams onto a separate tab as you made some changes and MADRAZO as well. I'll try to fix that tomorrow.

    My team, as always a little bit different than the youngsters in the main game and the emerging riders game although I do not have a reasoning for every rider why he is in this particular game team and not in another.

    LEKNESSUND Andreas   186
    CHAMPOUSSIN Clément   170
    MOLENAAR Alex   170
    ALEOTTI Giovanni   122
    BAIS Mattia   119
    GROVES Kaden   106
    BAGIOLI Andrea   83
    ALBA BOLIVAR Juan Diego   20
    FRIGO Marco   10
    MACIEJUK Filip   6
    ARENSMAN Thymen   0
    BALMER Alexandre   0
    PICCOLO Andrea   0
    SIMMONS Quinn   0
    TIBERI Antonio   0

    3 unique picks with Molenaar, Frigo and Balmer. In general a pretty unpopular team I like nonetheless.

    And in case you're wondering why I only picked four Scandinavians ... I also put together an all-Scandinavian team to run 'out of competition' (because otherwise they would clearly win): :D

    Team sent.

    15 riders
    -> 5 are zero pointers and for the other 10 I have spent a budget of 965 points.
    -> 10 WT, 2 ProConti, 2 Conti, 1 amateur.
    -> 3 elite, 12 u23.

    *uk *uk *uk *it *it *no *no *es *es *au *ec *co *usa *nl *dk

    Now is time to reveal the names with a brief analysis. Ordered by popularity:

    - mainstream-

    40 -> *usa SIMMONS Quinn (2001, 0 points). Trek WT.
    As expected, almost everybody has THE guy. Missing him is not an Evenepoel-kind mistake, but close enough.

    34 -> *co ARDILA ORDOÑEZ Andres Camilo (1999, 44 points). Emirates WT.
    Very chosen, not strange as he was impressing in the u23 Giro and is quite cheap. He's coming out of injury and has almost 0 experience outside Colombia, but those climbing legs worth the shot.

    29 -> *it DAINESE Alberto (1998, 201 points). Sunweb WT.
    The most expensive guy of my team. And I think he's a key rider this year. He's a great sprinter and I believe he's going to be a 1st option for Sunweb since the start.

    26 -> *it BAGIOLI Andrea (1999, 83 points). Deceuninck WT.
    Classy rider, going pro with Quick Step. Easy choice.

    - popular picks-

    19 -> *no FOSS Tobias Svendsen (1997, 127 points). Jumbo WT.
    The winner of the Avenir is always a good option, don't you think?

    17 -> *no LEKNESSUND Andreas (1999, 186 points). Uno-x Pro.
    Norwegian power! In my opinion, he was the strongest GC rider last season in the u23 field. Instead of going ahead to WT, he has decided to stay a year at ProConti level leading his UNO-X team in its debut season. I expect good results in the Europe Tour races.

    17 -> *nl ARENSMAN Thymen (1999, 0 points). Seg CT -> Sunweb WT.
    Unlucky last season, so is a zero pointer. Mandatory pick cause he already proved it in 2018.

    15 -> *au GROVES Kaden (1998, 106 points). Mitchelton WT.
    Another fast guy going to a WT team without a clear leader for the sprints. He's not as quick as Dainese and I'm not as hyped for him, but in the other hand he's good on hilly courses as well. So I believe is a good pick.

    15 -> *es RODRIGUEZ CANO Carlos (2001, 0 points). Ineos WT.
    Maybe the next spanish great rider? I've been following the junior ranks and he was soooo dominating in the spanish scene, but not as good as expected abroad. Probably he's not ready yet and there are other juniors more prepared like italians Piccolo or Tiberi. But if Ineos believes in him stepping up right now, I must do it too.

    13 -> *uk DONOVAN Mark (1999, 5 points). Sunweb WT.
    Similar case to Arensman. Bad season last year, but going to WT and already showed his legs. Cheap. Go.

    - rare picks -

    6 -> *uk PIDCOCK Thomas (1999, 116 points). Trinity amateur.
    Yes, I know. He's expensive and his road calendar probably stinks. But he's pretty good, isn't he?

    4 -> *uk CULLAIGH Gabriel (1996, 50 points). Movistar WT.
    He's been out of radar cause last season he wasn't u23 anymore. But his kinda like Dainese and Groves, a young and promising sprinter going to a team without a leader in that area. Just a little less young and promising.

    2 -> *ec CEPEDA HERNANDEZ Jefferson Alveiro (1996, 47 points). Caja Rural Pro.
    This is the best Cepeda. Period.

    2 -> *es TORRES BARCELO Albert (1990, 0 points). Movistar WT.
    Track specialist finally doing his pro debut on the road. He used to be fast, a decent sprinter. Maybe, with the lack of speed in the Movistar ranks, he can be the option and score in the lower races.

    1 -> *dk CHARMIG Anthon (1998, 0 points). ColoQuick Ct.
    I'm hyped about him? Hell YES. He was one of the hottest prospects in his junior years. Then he quitted. But after more than two years out of the cycling world, he decided to come back and since the beginning he collected good results in Denmark amateur races. So he's back at the continental level. I was hoping for an unique pick and this is good enough.
    PD: How I reached at him? Cause he won the Taiwan KOM making Dyball and Ficara bit the dust.

    You could argue that  *fi and to a lesser extent your beloved  *dk don't belong to Scandinavia.  ;p I like your OOC team BTW.
