Today, I woke up to the news that Matthew Holmes won on Willunga Hill! :o

I thought he'd be a decent pick and was confident he would score points. I didn't expect he'd start in January by winning a stage of a WT race! :cool :D

    Year 1, Month 1 Up to 2nd February

    The first update is probably of little significance to the final scores, but offers an early slice of pride, and gives me a few mouth in heart moments as I see whether the spreadsheet does what it should.

    Top ten scorers who were selected:
    HOLMES Matthew   65 points, mainlyfor finally dethroning Porte on Wilunga Hill, for Del1962, hfgon1 and Lukas CPH
    HAILU Biniam Girmay   45 (two stage wins and a third in Tropicale Amissa Bongo) for 6 teams
    VIVIANI Attilio   34 (stage and some other points in Amissa Bongo)   10
    OLDANI Stefano   32 (5th in Trofeo Playa de Palma)   5
    BUITRAGO SANCHEZ Santiago   23 (19th on GC in TDU); Josedin, Otoxiep87
    RIVERA VARGAS Brandon Smith   20 (4th in Colombian TT nat's); hfgon1, Josedin
    VANHOUCKE Harm   18 pts   1 teams
    DINA Marton   16   1
    DRIZNERS Jarrad   16   1
    PEÑALVER ANIORTE Manuel   16   2

    but TESFATSION Natnael Ocbit and LEVASSEUR Jordan both scored over 100 this month, and FLOREZ LOPEZ Miguel Eduardo, MORIN Emmanuel, MULUBRHAN Henok and PAREDES AVELLANEDA Cesar Nicolas got 50 or more.  They might be serious misses, or they might never reach these heights again, but history tells us that most of us will have some members of our teams who will score fewer points in the three years than these guys have this month.

    Standings
    Everyone is off the mark (mainly through popular picks Viviani, Rutsch and Cepeda), and our first leader is a newcomer to these games.

    1   hfgon1   150 ( mainly from Holmes, Hailu and Rivera)
    2   LukasCPH   138 (Holmes and Viviani)
    3   Josedin   99 (Viviani, Buitrago, Vivera)
    3   Skidmark   99  (Hailu, Viviani)
    5   Kazistuta   94   (Hailu, Viviani)
    6   AmisVelo   92 (Hailu, Oldani)
    7   Del_1962   85
    8   Blues_in_the_Bottle   81
    9   SafeBet   71
    10   Armchair_Cyclist   65
    11   MuddyWaters   64
    11   Squire   64
    13   Scrooll07   63
    14   JonEzeitza   62
    15   Fivezzz   59
    16   Nicosix   55
    17   AlyKaptan   54
    18   Koronin   47
    19   Madrazo   44
    19   Otoxiep87   44
    21   Northerner   40
    22   Leadbelly   34
    23   LosBrolin   32
    24   Comodoro   31
    25   Cordi   29
    26   RoteLaterne   24
    27   Laarsland   21
    28   Archieboy   19
    28   Joelsim   19
    28   Ray10   19
    31   Karaev   14
    32   Ludwigzgz   11
    33   Vladimir   10
       CollectiveWisdom   54
       CollectiveIgnorance*   839

    *  For those new to the updates, or who never quite got their heads around it: the Collective Ignorance team is the 18 highest scoring riders that none of us picked.  Unlike the other teams, this team changes its make-up as the game progresses, and so is always exceptionally good early on in the game.  It drops back into the same range of scores as most of us by around the middle of year two, but it serves to draw our attention, and our embarrassment, to those we omitted.

    Updates should be roughly monthly, but don't be surprised if there are longer gaps when a GT game is in progress. 

    Don't gloat or despair on the basis of this, this is no more than looking for a position at the beginning of a long ride.

    Ha, fat chance. Compared to this month's haul in the 18-20 and 19-21 games, this is an excellent start for me!
    :D

    Year 1, month 2 3rd February to 1st March
     Top scorers (of those we have picked)
    FEDOROV Yevgeniy   195 (stage win and 2nd on GC in Langkawi, stage in Rwanda)   for Vladimir
    HAILU Biniam Girmay   129 (2nd in Laigueglia, stage podiums in Rwanda) for 6 teams
    BRUNEL Alexys   107 (stage win and 3rd overall in Etoile de Besseges) for Archieboy
    CEPEDA HERNANDEZ Jefferson Alveiro   59 (6th in Vuelta a Murcia) for Blues in the Bottle
    HAILEMICHAEL Mulu Kinfe   55 (stage win and 9th on GC in Rwanda) for Amis Velo and Ludwigzgz
    BAGIOLI Andrea   45   26
    HONORE Mikkel Frølich   40   5
    BENNETT Sean   39   2
    VANHOUCKE Harm   38   1
    WIRTGEN Luc   26   1
    HEIDEMANN Miguel   25   1

    And the unchosen Tesfatsion is again the best scorer of the month, and would already justify his place in most final teams, and Max Stedman will be considered to have been a bit of a miss too.

    This month
    1   Vladimir   314 (Fedorov and Bagioli)
    2   AmisVelo   278 (Hailu, Hailemichael and Bagioli)
    3   SafeBet   244 (Hailu and Bagioli)

    31   Otoxiep87   61
    32   Leadbelly   46
    33   Ray10   28
       CollectiveWisdom   121
       CollectiveIgnorance   1074

    Standings
    I am sure there won't be a bigger change of position than Vladimir going from last to 4th this month.  Having just won the 2017-19 edition, Amis Velo takes the lead here, and whatever else happens between now and the end of 2022, Nicosix will be able to say that he too was among those who was at some stage in the top ten.

    Year 1, Month 3, 4, 5 and possibly more 2 March to at least end May (but really only races up to 14 March)

    DE DECKER Alfdan   40 (3rd in GP Jean-Pierre Monseré) for Alykaptan
    WAERENSKJOLD Søren   38 (Won Tour of Rhodes and 2 stages) for Ray10
    WOUTERS Enzo   12 (10th in GP Jean-Pierre Monseré) for Leadbelly
    MÄRKL Niklas   9   1
    ANIOLKOWSKI Stanislaw   8   3
    MEEUS Jordi   6   1
    BARTHE Cyril   5   2
    VAN DEN BERG Marijn   5   1
    JERMAN Ziga   3   2
    ÄRM Rait   1   1
    That's all the scoring riders in this period.

    1   AlyKaptan   48
    2   Ray10   41
    3   Leadbelly   21
    4=   Comodoro   9
    4=   Joelsim   9
    6   Nicosix   8
    7=   Fivezzz   5
    7=   RoteLaterne   5
    7=   Scrooll07   5
    10=   Everyone else   0
       CollectiveWisdom   0
       CollectiveIgnorance   263 (Nicholas White with 145 from Tour of Taiwan, David Dekker with 55 including 3rd in Le Samyn, and Jaume Sureda, 55 also from Taiwan)

    Standings

    Alykaptan rises 7 places, the other teams in double figures this month are slightly less far adrift than they were. No changes of position above Scrool in 12th, so Amis Velo has the pride of top spot for about 3 months at least.
