2020 Official Prediction Game
« on: January 17, 2020, 12:06 »

The OFFICIAL PREDICTION GAME is back :fanfare


Copy paste from last year's thread:

The Rules :fanfare
1. Please get your predictions in before the stage/race starts as they may not be accepted. I will accept predictions after the start at my  discretion.
2. For a one day race, you predict places 1 to 5 and 27th place. For stage races, you predict places 1 to 5 and 27th for GC and all stages. Your prediction for GC needs to be in before the first stage starts.

Points scoring:
For each rider you predicted in top 5, in the correct place, you score 5 points.
For each rider you predicted in top 5, in the wrong place, you score 1 point.
For 27th correct, you score 15 points.

So:
Giro d'Italia GC
I predict
Contador
Aru
Uran
Pozzovivo
Chaves
Wiggins

The final result is:
Contador
Aru
Pozzovivo
Chaves
Uran
Wiggins

I got 1st and 2nd place correct --> 2x 5 points = 10
I got 3rd to 5th in top 5, but in the wrong place --> 3x 1 point = 3 points
I got 27th correct --> 15 points
so for Giro GC I score 28 points

Special rule for team time trials: we predict top-5 and last place, however for last place you can only get 5 points if you've predicted this correctly instead of 15 like for 27th correct.

PLEASE ENTER YOUR PREDICTIONS IN THE FORMAT I USED IN THE EXAMPLE ABOVE
So: no nicknames, just the last name of a rider (in the event of 2 riders with the same last name in the same race, put the riders initial after their name --> Martin D or Martin T), no numbers in front of the names, no smileys (kits, flags or otherwise) and please check for typos.
In that format I can simply copy paste the predictions into the spreadsheat. Otherwise, I'll have to enter the predictions manually.

Typos: They happen, please check for them, if you miss them no problem, I won't kick your ass, and I will try to remove most typos when updating the spreadsheet, but just like you I can miss typos, which means you might miss points.

Calendar:
Spoiler (hover to show)

If you have to miss a certain race, you can predict the race beforehand, so you'll still get some points

The Prizes
 :)
We have a nice trophy for the overall winner (i.e. a miniature of the late KeithJamesMC's avatar as he was the original organizer of this game)
A cobble for the person with the highest cumulative score in the spring classics ( Milano-Sanremo, Gent-Wevelgem In Flanders Fields, Ronde van Vlaanderen / Tour des Flandres, Paris - Roubaix, Amstel Gold Race, La Flèche Wallonne, Liège - Bastogne - Liège)
 #pink pink jersey for the person with the highest score at the Giro d'Italia
 #yellow yellow jersey for the person with the highest score at the Tour de France
 #red red jersey for the person with the highest score at the Vuelta a España
 #rainbow rainbow jersey for the person with the highest score at the Worlds
An autumn leaf for the person with the highest cumulative score in the autumn classics (San Sebastian, Cyclassics, Ouest-France, GP Québec, GP Montréal, Lombardia, London race)

So even if you're out of the running for the overall title you can still win other awards :)


NB:
- In the unlikely event of a tie, we will have two winners.
- this year I won't be able to do (m)any updates in the 2nd half of the season, so we'll have to figure out how to organize that
