The Riders

22 teams: LANDA MEANA Mikel
20: JAKOBSEN Fabio
17: LOPEZ MORENO Miguel Angel
13: BERNAL GOMEZ Egan Arley
9: PADUN Mark
8: KNOX James, MODOLO Sacha
6: BARDET Romain, DAINESE Alberto
The Collective wisdom team is made up of the above riders.  Yes, I know there are 9 of them, but Bardet and Dainese will each only contribute half their points to that team's score.

5: CICCONE Giulio, MAJKA Rafal, ROGLIC Primoz
4: CARTHY Hugh, KUSS Sepp, PIDCOCK Thomas, VANHOUCKE Harm
3: ARU Fabio, BAGIOLI Andrea, CHEREL Mikael, DE LA CRUZ MELGAREJO David, HAMILTON Lucas, KRUIJSWIJK Steven, MAS NICOLAU Enric, MOLANO BENAVIDES Juan Sebastian, SIVAKOV Pavel, YATES Adam
2: ARENSMAN Thymen, AZPARREN IRURZUN Xabier Mikel, CAICEDO CEPEDA Jonathan Klever, CEPEDA HERNANDEZ Jefferson Alveiro, CHAMPOUSSIN Clément, CUADROS MORATA Alvaro, HAIG Jack, LOBATO DEL VALLE Juan Jose, LOPEZ PEREZ Juan Pedro, PALZER Anton, VALVERDE BELMONTE Alejandro, VANSEVENANT Mauri
and the 30 unique picks are shown above.

Team Similarity

We don't need any teams to select a tie-breaking ninth rider to distinguish between identical teams: the most similar line-ups are those of SafeBet and TRiley36 with 6 riders in common.
Five man overlaps can be found on several pairs of teams:
Amis Velo with Earns; Amis Velo with Northerner; Archie with Titan; Bicycle Boy with Rote Laterne; Bminchow with Del; Bonimenier with Leadbelly; Bonimenier with Safebet; Northerner with SafeBet; and Otoxiep with Yellow Knight.


Four Seasons Championship
We have 12 teams who have taken part in all 4 of my in-season games this year (Spring classics, Giro, Tour and Vuelta), so they fight out the Four Seasons Championship, but with Leadbelly having a huge lead after winning both the Spring and Tour games, and the only challenger within a country mile, Otoxiep, having a largely similar Vuelta selection, this seems something of a foregone conclusion.

But the standings so far:
1      Leadbelly      6424
2      Otoxiep87      5864
3      AmisVelo      5205
4      Rote_Laterne      4925
5      Mellow_Velo      4816
6      Comodoro      4672
7      Del1962      4587
8      Bminchow      4548
9      BluesInTheBottle      4417
10      Armchair_Cyclist      4331
11      Triley36      4262
12      Search      3615
      Collective_Wisdom      4900
