Re: 2016-18 Emerging Riders CQ Game
« Reply #30 on: February 02, 2016, 21:46 »
While Gaviria is rendered almost entirely meaningless in terms of the game, as he is on every team other than Guilhermo Ribeiro's, there are 4 other picks that more than 3/4 of teams have chosen:
Laurens De Plus (missed by Guilherme, Just Some Guy, and LukasCPH);
Lennard Kamna (omitted by Guilherme, 0w1s, Laarsland and Trudgin);
Gianni Moscon (eschewed by (guess who?) Guilherme, 0w1s, Just Some Guy, Laarsland and LukasCPH) and
Mads Pedersen (overlooked by Guilherme (of course), 0w1s, Just Some Guy, Laarsland, Trudgin, and also GPBlanco, Kazistuta, Vladimir and Bomboloni)

As well as those 5, another 4 riders (Tao Geoghegan-Hart, Marc Soler, Thomas Boudat and Simone Consonni) were selected by more than half the teams.

So how many of these 9 riders who most teams picked did we each go for?
All 9 of them: Amis Velo, Hugo Koblet, MC Mountain, Murrjt, Rote Laterne and yours' truly;
8: Abbulf, Blues in the Bottle, Del1962, Hilltop Finisher, Karaev, Madrazo, Ruudz0r, Skidmark and The Fool on the Hill;
7: Alykaptan, Flo, GPBlanco, Jakob747, Leadbelly, Ludwigzgz and Togo;
6: 0w1s, Comodoro, DJW, Italian Gigolo, Joelsim, Kazistuta and Scrool007;
5: Josedin, LukasCPH and Vladimir;
4: Bombolini, Just Some Guy and Trudgin;
3: Laarsland
0: Guilherme Ribeiro.

Amis Velo not only has the most popular 9 riders, but also Tom Bohli, Rodrigo Contreras, and Louis Vervaeke, one of the two riders in joint 12th for popularity.

Dylan Page was in the majority of teams that were entered on Sunday afternoon/evening, but not in any team submitted before his third place in the Trofeo Playa de Palma.

And the Collective Wisdom squad, the standard against which we might test ourselves, is made up of the top 18 riders in terms of popularity (or most hyped at the beginning of the 3 years, if you prefer):
GAVIRIA RENDON Fernando
DE PLUS Laurens
KÄMNA Lennard
MOSCON Gianni
PEDERSEN Mads
GEOGHEGAN HART Tao
SOLER GIMENEZ Marc
BOUDAT Thomas
CONSONNI Simone
BOHLI Tom
CONTRERAS PINZON Rodrigo
MARTIN Guillaume
VERVAEKE Louis
MARTINEZ POVEDA Daniel Felipe
MAMYKIN Matvey
MANZIN Lorrenzo
MULLEN Ryan
PETERS Alex
(Popularity ranking would be 373)

Poor Guilherme
