Velogames - Women's Classics
« on: October 03, 2020, 20:38 »
https://www.velogames.com/womens-classics/2020/

League Name: Velorooms
League Code: 23845309

:onfire1 Important Notice :onfire1

Due to the delayed organizing of this league and the very limited time people have to create their teams or even be aware that it is going on, I have made an executive decision to not include it in the overall championship.

Obviously there still is a league and everyone should feel free to enter a team, but it's just for fun this time.

    Good decision Leadbelly. I've put together a team but not too confident about it. Feels weird to have half a team's worth of filler while feeling you had to make many compromises on the other half as well :P

    For these women's games I strongly believe the best strategy is to get as many high points riders in and then add several random 4-point no-hopes as opposed to selecting the strongest mid-range options which I usually go for for men's, but somehow I can never make it work and then I end up with a half-baked in-between option.

    This was exactly my reasoning too, Flo.

    My half-baked team ended up doing decently with 4 in the top-10 and 2 on the podium. I may have to review my opinion on what is the best strategy :P

    Only 8 transfers! I know the women's peloton is less specialized than the men's (or maybe that is changing with the current crop of male NKOTB?), but you'd think George would have given us at least 12.

    As for my strategy, it was of the two minute variety and I consciously eschewed the big two/three for the time being and spread the points around a bit more. Going well so far and naturally it's in the one league that doesn't count towards the overall.....

    Still 1st, 106 points ahead of second place, but I only have 5/6* riders on the Brugge-De Panne startlist, 4 of which are also on the second placed team. And they have 3 transfers left. Squeaky bum time :o :-x

    * I highly doubt Wild will be at the start...

    Still 1st, 106 points ahead of second place

    In the much more important Velorooms league though you have a healthy lead of over 500.
