Velogames - Superclasico 2020
« on: July 29, 2020, 19:58 »
https://www.velogames.com/superclasico/2020/

League Name: Velorooms
League Code: 23845309

If you have been part of any of the races so far this year then there is no need to enter the code again, you will automatically join the league. The code is only for new entrants.

If you are interested in winning the season long league please keep your manager name the same throughout the year and ideally have it the same as your VR name or Twitter handle. If you change it, you run the risk of not getting the correct amount of points. Also please limit yourself to one entry or you risk disqualification from that event.

Current top-ten:

    Some repeated plugging on the VR twitter account will be much appreciated. :cool

    Anyway it's an interesting twist on the usual classics game and one which makes sense to me. Races still could get cancelled and rider's calendars are not set in stone. Ergo unlimited transfers is the right call imo and will differentiate this league from the main game when it starts later in the year (the 6 men teams will also provide some variety).

    SB is the first race and the deadline will be Saturday some time.

    One thing I forgot to add, this will be a twenty point league like the other classic games.

    Most of us off to a good start. sime66 flew out of the blocks with four main point providers and one assist.

    Strade was a bit of a disaster for me. Changed my team about 5 times switching around the guys in the 20-26 point range and ended up with exactly the few big names that did NOT deliver :S well I suppose Stybar was ok-ish.

    sime66 the only entrant (in the top-ten at least) to have gone with Gorka. Even so that was only good enough for third on the day as Joao cleaned up with only one dud pick.

    Wednesday brings the next race. Milano - Torino.

    #4 MSR



    All but three of us had WVA (I won't mention any names!). Perennial challenger Russell took the honours on the day, in no small part down to selecting Frappers in the lottery of who was going to get in the break.



    sime66 and DChallis had been duking it out for the first three races, but average MSRs for them has let others get back in the hunt.

    Gran Piemonte on Wednesday is next up.

    I kept reloading the page until Joao was top. :lol

    Yeah these six men teams are producing some very similar squads. 3rd through 8th all with the same riders. Very high scoring as well. More than double what was being scored in the other cat.1 race MSR.

    Still there's a very long way to go. I make it another 17 races (GP Wallonie is cancelled), so lots to play for.

    GdE update tomorrow.

    That's one crowded top step of the podium. We need to get to the cobbles, they'll be a bit less predictable.



    Here's the overall. Josh A is a late entrant, he must have signed up for the Dauphine. Early leader DChallis is on the slide.
