Title: 2021-23 Emerging Riders CQ Game
Post by: Armchair Cyclist on January 03, 2021, 23:56
We all sit down to watch a race with ideas about who we think or hope will win it, and we look at a new season or a transfer with a view to what will transpire over the next few months.


The challenge here is to look not just a few hours or months ahead, but up to three years: to assume the role, not of the director of a major team who can buy proven talent with short term goals, but that of the leader of a minor team who can identify up and coming talent who might become great in a few years time.  But you don't want their progression to be too slow, you need results within three years.


In recent years, we have had two Tour de France winners, a Giro winner, a World champion (TT) and a Road Race bronze medallist, and many WT race winners while in the three year period they were eligible for past editions of the game.

So who will take a place among the major contenders in the sport by the end of the 2023 season?  That is your challenge.

For the Emerging Riders game you need to select a team of 18 male riders, who can be of any age, but each must have a lifetime total of fewer than 200 CQ points (not 200: fewer than).  There is no upper limit for the team, although logically, it must be no more than 18x199.    Their score will be the points they accumulate between 1st Jan 2021 and 31 December 2023, as awarded by CQ.

There are of course, untold thousands of riders who are eligible: even I am, but don't take that as a recommendation or an insight into my selection. I have put together a very long list of riders (https://drive.google.com/file/d/1299Jgo0qJZKcCu2o0AE4jtRfMHWb6JR0/view?usp=sharing) who have scored CQ points (or are on a WorldTeam or ProTeam squad) in the last three years without reaching 200: it also has a warnings list of those who have passed the threshold in 2020, who you might have thought would still be eligible but are not.  I will identify those eligible for this among riders selected for the main annual CQ game when that list is available.


A past ban does not necessarily disqualify a rider from selection, but any points that they had been awarded and have been struck will be considered still in place when considering whether they are eligible for the game.   If a rider is banned during the game, then his points will be removed only when CQ remove them from his record.  In practice, this tends to be a very slow process (as I know to my cost: I would have won the 2016-18 edition if they had been faster to remove Jaime Roson's points).


Entries should be sent to me by PM on either Cycling News forum or Velorooms by the end of January: if any races do take place before then, I am confident that they will be pretty insignificant in the overall course of the game.

Sorry it has taken a while to set up the proper launch. My team has been sent to Comodoro, who has already sent in his team. Ready for all your entries now.

Any questions or clarifications? Let me know.

I think you could change this rule. Because nowadays, CQR doesn't erase the results of the dopers, only puts a rider comment below.


Rosón for example, still has his points: https://cqranking.com/men/asp/gen/rider.asp?riderid=21791

But the comment below, acting as a desclaimer, says:
Quote
In June 2018 the UCI advised Jaime ROSON of anomalies in his biological passport data of January 2017. He was suspended by the UCI for 4 years, until 26 June 2022, and he loses all his results in 2017 and 2018.

I decided finally to abandon my CT or lower rule for this year at least. Seeing how things are going currently, it could be next year as well....

6 WT
7 PCT
4 CT
1 Club

Still should be fairly low on the popularity scales and still should be dragging the VR average down.

My team was made a couple of months ago and is awaiting to be sent. Maybe I'll give it a further examination, as I remember that I found very difficult to make the decisions this year, with a lot of 1st and 2nd year WT riders still elegible becouse of the covid and the reduced calendar.

By now, the team is composed by 13 riders from WT, 2 from PT and 3 from CT.

Team sent. Finally I decided to bet on the 18 riders I decided 2 months ago.

I believe there was a problem with the settings on Google Drive, and the link did not necessarily give access to the list of eligible riders.  I hope that it is now resolved, and that this  (https://drive.google.com/file/d/1299Jgo0qJZKcCu2o0AE4jtRfMHWb6JR0/view?usp=sharing) works.  Perhaps someone would confirm whether it does.

Edit: I have changed the link again since, after CN users reported that it was still a broken link.  Seems OK now, but let me know if it isn't.

It works for me.
I can't scroll through it with my mouse wheel or the arrow keys, but I can see the list and scroll through it using the bar at the right.

You probably need to download it to get full usability, but I have changed the link since you wrote, so that might work better.

I have clarified the OP: the 199 point upper limit is for each rider, not for the whole team.  Two teams recently looked as though they had tried to make a lifetime total for all 18 riders cumulatively of less than 200: that is not necessary (as both managers in question clearly realised last year!)

4 1/2 days left: don't miss out.
Title: Re: 2021-23 Emerging Riders CQ Game
Post by: Armchair Cyclist on January 30, 2021, 00:48
So far:

24 teams in, 107 different riders tipped to be achievers by 2023 in a way that they are not yet.


Of those 107, 48 are only on one team, while 2 are tied as the most popular on 18 of the 24 teams.


So far, only 6 of the entries will be part of Team Velorooms in the battle of the forums: more good scorers might be needed to counteract Leadbelly's wilfully obscure selection.  Velorooms hasn't lost a game since I started this sideshow to the main individual challenge,so there is a record to defend.

Don't miss out...

Now that Skidmark has released the main CQ  list, I can present what Vladimir has described on CN forum as the cheat list: those who have been picked for the main game, and are also eligible for this one.  So if you are stuck, simply choose any 18 names from this list: you will know that at least one other person thinks they were worth a punt.


Of the 94 names here, 65 have been selected among the 24 teams already in for the Emerging Riders game.  That means that there are 29 on this list that could be your game making unique pick. 


It also means that there are 37 riders who have already been picked for the three year game, but who nobody considered worth a place on their team when only looking at one year. Including 6 riders who are on more than 2 Emerging Rider teams already, and one of them is on seven out of twenty four Emerging Rider teams, but none of the ninety one Main game teams.  That'll have you guessing as to who it is.


I'll put this list in the longlist doc as I said I would, but it isn't desperately long: I'll put it here for greater ease.

And, of course, these are the CQ versions of names that will earn you my eternal gratitude:

We are up to 30 teams now: it would still be good to have a last minute rush.  I think/hope I have acknowledged receipt of all teams: if you sent me a team and I haven't replied, let me know.


I said end of January as a deadline, without being precise about which timezone.  I believe the legal principle is that where there is ambiguity, the more generous interpretation is to be applied, so I guess that is midnight tonight in Hawaii or somewhere (Do we have any contributors in Samoa?).


So in effect you have until I get a chance to attend to it mid-morning UK time on Monday.

So here we go

OK, I think all inhabited zones of the planet have now reached the end of January.


36 teams in, which is about the level of participation this game has usually had.  Great to welcome some new managers: always a pity to see some of the regulars not submit a team, but hopefully we will see them again.


There was only one ineligible rider nominated, and that was my fault (I had missed CQ's change if Debesay's forename from Yacob to Yakob, and so had omitted his 2018 points from my cumulative total, and erroneously listed him as eligible: thanks to the manager involved for amending his team quickly and with good grace): a couple of strange autotranslations, and a few misspellings and missing second surnames, but they were easily sorted.  The two managers who imposed unnecessary restrictions on their selections both submitted more competitive second squads.


On those 36 teams we have 120 different riders: they can't all become superstars by the end of 2023, but hopefully some of them will have some impressive results over the three years.

Title: Re: 2021-23 Emerging Riders CQ Game
Post by: Armchair Cyclist on February 01, 2021, 14:08
Rider popularity
A three way tie for the most popular rider (I don't think we have seen that before): Brenner had an early lead, Arensman caught up and the lead changed quite a bit as teams came in: Kooij was on enough late teams that omitted one or both of those to catch up very late in the process.

28 of 36 teams:  ARENSMAN Thymen, BRENNER Marco, KOOIJ Olav
24:  DEKKER David, VAN WILDER Ilan
22:  VANSEVENANT Mauri
21:  ALEOTTI Giovanni
20:  TEJADA CANACUE Harold Alfonso
18:  CAMARGO PINEDA Diego Andres, COVI Alessandro
17:  JORGENSON Matteo
15:  DONOVAN Mark
14:  AYUSO PESQUERA Juan, TIBERI Antonio, VERMAERKE Kevin
13:  ARDILA ORDOÑEZ Andres Camilo, RODRIGUEZ CANO Carlos
12:  RUBIO REYES Einer Augusto
And the 18 riders on a dozen or more teams comprise to Collective Wisdom team
11:  COLLEONI Kevin, SHEFFIELD Magnus, WALLS Matthew
10:  BRUNEL Alexys, HÄNNINEN Jaakko, MILAN Jonathan, VANDENABEELE Henri, VERVLOESEM Xandres
9:  OLDANI Stefano, UMBA LOPEZ Abner Santiago
8:  PICCOLO Andrea, TULETT Ben
7:  GARRISON Ian, JACOBS Johan, ROMO OLIVER Javier, VAN GILS Maxim
6:  BUITRAGO SANCHEZ Santiago, CARR Simon, SCHELLING Ide, ZWIEHOFF Ben
5:  BERWICK Sebastian, FISHER-BLACK Finn, KONYCHEV Alexander
4:  LOPEZ PEREZ Juan Pedro, PLAPP Lucas
3:  CEPEDA ORTIZ Jefferson Alexander, GOOSSENS Kobe, LEEMREIZE Gijs, MORIN Emmanuel, VIGO DEL ARCO Marti, WRIGHT Fred
2:  ALBA BOLIVAR Juan Diego, ARROYAVE CAÑAS Daniel, BRUSSENSKIY Gleb, CHAMPION Thomas, CHARMIG Anthon, CULLAIGH Gabriel, DINA Marton, ELOSEGUI MOMEÑE Iñigo, GONZALEZ RIVERA Abner, HERREGODTS Rune, HINDSGAUL MADSEN Jacob, LOPEZ GRANIZO Harold Martin, LUND ANDRESEN Tobias, PALZER Anton, QUINN Sean, REPA Vojtech, RIES Michel, SLEEN Torjus, STRONG Corbin, VACEK Karel, VACEK Mathias, WAERENSKJOLD Søren, WANDAHL Frederik, WEEMAES Sasha

And there should be 47 asterisked unique picks in the list above this one.

I think the Vaceks are only the second pair of brothers to be in an edition of the game: I doubt they will score as well as the Yates, but I hope they are not total failures as I have one of them.  We also have younger siblings of the Viviani, Paret-Peintre and Garrison families represented.

All of Lucas Plapp's selections came after his Wilunga Hill exploits, though he got no points for that as it was a national series level race.  Although a few other points have been gained before entries closed (I will hope to do the first points posting this evening, household duties permitting), I didn't notice them creating any surge in naming anyone.

Bminchow (who virtually swept the board in CQ games in 2020) complained that he had no idea how to go about picking a team for this one (his first time here), and then sent in a team that tops the popularity table.

Other than the Collective Wisdom team described above, there is as previously a Collective Ignorance team, which will constantly change its make-up through the game as the best 18 riders that we could have had but all overlooked: expect that team to be far and away the best team early on, and finally to finish around mid-table.
You will notice another non-manager picked team: I have pooled together the riders eligible for this who were most frequently chosen in the 2021 season CQ game just to see how they do.  All of them are fairly popular in this game, but 4 of them did not make the Collective Wisdom team.  It would reflect well on those in the main game if this group scores very well in year 1, and well on those in this game if it then drops a bit in the table, at least below Collective Wisdom, thereafter.

I need to go out now: will probably come up with a few more numbers later.

I have taken pity on Squire, a stalwart of these games, over at CN.  He makes a late entry at 4th in the popularity table, and puts Amis Velo above Hakkie for 2nd.  His selection doesn't change the  Collective Wisdom squad, or the three way tie at the top, but does remove Asbjorn Hellemose from eligibility for the Collective Ignorance team.

I'd just like to point out that my team (with Corbin Strong) was submitted before the NZCC took place. :P

Not expecting too many more points off him this year, what with the Olympics and all, but fingers crossed he secures a good contract in 2022.

Sorry Rufs, but there is a very good reason he was not picked by more people. :-x
Title: Re: 2021-23 Emerging Riders CQ Game
Post by: Cordi on February 01, 2021, 19:48
In this game I developed a rule, that is to only sign riders with a pro contract in a team with good calendar (wich could be for next year as Vandenabeele for example). Why? Because no matter how good you are, you're only going to score big goals when you get to play in the big leagues. I make some exceptions with riders I'm pretty confident will get soon a WT contract (like Brenner last year) and/or with riders I see as massive talents (as Sheffield this year).

I learned the lesson picking too early riders that underscored mostly because they were at low level races or because were not ready yet (example: taking Vacek when he was just out of junior category, switching him for Higuita at the last second  :-x).

...

Anyway, that's why Plapp show in this year reduced Down Under doesn't change the things. I'm following him since 2018, but until he get a contract I won't consider him. Same issues for example with Walls, who I take this year and not last year because of WT contract. I like to be able to finally make in my team a spot for riders I've been following for a long time, like for example this year Simon Carr. Usually I take them when they're almost zero pointers to complete my team in a very good game that is in the spanish forum Parlamento named "CQ Ranking" and I become kind of a fan and follow their progress next years. I recomend you that game if you want to try a new one and you're not afraid to be bidding for riders and trashtaling in spanish  :D

----

I'm writing too much, I know... Just to end it, I wanna add that the rider I've been tempted to add to my team in the last moment is Umba, who was impressive in Táchira as a 1st year u23. Savio knows... But last editions, last minute changes didn't treat me well, so this time I decided to not touch the team.

Always nice to have a unique pick. I hope he follows his brothers steps. ;)

I'm curious about Vansevenant. Never good to leave a Quickstepper out (I did not learn my lesson about Evenepoel) but I did not find a spot for him although I probably picked some of the young guys a year to early.

Yep, this year was a hard one to make the team. In my case, while making my team back in december, I did also a B team that looks this strong (eventually could beat my A team  :lol)

Johan Jacobs      Movistar
Juanpe Lopez      Trek
Mauri Vansevenant   Deceuninck

Santiago Buitrago   Bahrain
Alexys Brunel      Groupama
Ian Garrison      Deceuninck
Stefano Oldani      Lotto
David Dekker      Jumbo

That last column is the hint that I have set up a team similarity tab.  Other than Bminchow's 15 man overlap with the Collective Wisdom team, the highest correlations are:

14 riders in common:  Cordi-Ludwigzgz
13: Amis Velo-Squire
Bminchow-Squire
Jon Ezietza-Nyssinator
Madrazo-Squire
Nakazar-Northern
and the 5 teams noted above who share 13 of the Collective Wisdom list.



Pre-game points

Each rider is allowed 199 points and still be permitted in the game, so in theory a team could legitimately have 3582 points.  These numbers mean very little, but maybe show the propensity of a manager to go for riders who have already shown themselves in the pro ranks a bit, or conversely, whether they are willing to invest in riders who might only come through in years 2 and 3.

This is probably just jostling for a place in the breakaway on stage one of a GT: it will be a while before we see who the main challengers will be.

Luke Plapp won the Aussie ITT champs, giving him his first 50 points.

I consciously decided not to pick him because I thought he wouldn't be able to scrape together 200 points on the Oceania Tour calendar, and lockdown/quarantine + Tokyo would keep him out of the European peloton for 2021, still leaving him eligible next year.
But now ... I don't know. :-x

Well, that confirms it. 2022 WT rider no doubt. Looks like a must for 22-24 if he doesn't make 200 points this year.

Oh, definitely.
My worry now is that he'll get snapped up during 2021 already and score 200+ points for his new team without even trying very hard. :(

Sorry Rufs, but there is a very good reason he was not picked by more people. :-x

Rufs just got lucky.

https://twitter.com/ollieman56/status/1357440088100245505

Still, he missed out on a contract with a pro team because of it.

Yep, this year was a hard one to make the team. In my case, while making my team back in december, I did also a B team that looks this strong (eventually could beat my A team  :lol)

Kevin Vermaerke   Sunweb
Johan Jacobs      Movistar
Juanpe Lopez      Trek
Mauri Vansevenant   Deceuninck
Camilo Ardila      UAE
Antonio Tiberi      Trek
Andrea Piccolo      Astana
Kevin Colleoni      Mitchelton
Giovanni Aleotti      Bora
Jonathan Milan      Bahrain
Jaako Hanninen      Ag2r
Santiago Buitrago   Bahrain
Alexys Brunel      Groupama
Ian Garrison      Deceuninck
Stefano Oldani      Lotto
David Dekker      Jumbo
Michel Ries      Trek
Kevin Inkelaar      Bahrain  -> altought after january I would put in his place Santiago Umba (Androni)


This is also quite a team.
Yes, Umba looks like an interesting pick.
And leaving out Vansevenant looks like a fault.

Yes, after seeing how they entered the season, not only Vansevenant but also Dekker look like a huge miss.

Vansevenant hurts more tho, as he was already in my 20-22 team and was one of the very difficult last rejections.

Year 1 Month 3 1 March to 4 April

The month of the northern classics, but most of these points were gained further south.  One rider, who I suspect will be one of the stars of this cohort, dominates, but a top ten in a major WT stage race is pretty good for this stage of the game too.
