Year 3  Month 4 5th April to 2nd May

It may be too late to challenge Evenepoel/Almeida/Higuita as the top men in this edition, but others are making their presence felt.

Standings
The two breakaway leaders both had a very underwhelming latter part of the classics campaign, so the peloton comes closer.  Flo does marginally better of the two (Rochas and Honoré more than cancelling out Osorio) to extend her lead.  The chasers stay pretty much in the same order that they were in, with Del replacing Kryvo in the top ten.

Working on this spreadsheet seems an odd way of taking a break from last minute work on the Giro game spreadsheet, but at least I have this out of the way to focus on Italy, and got a nice little fillip when I did the month's team table.


There are some riders in this game of whom great things are expected at the Giro.  And a few others who might scrape some odd points in Hungary or somewhere.  Hopefully I will get an update in the first week of June.

    The collective ignorance team got more points off people called Rodrigues/z than 10 of us got from our entire teams this month, and that includes some of us getting points from Oscar R!

    Almeida has now overtaken Evenepoel as top scorer in the game over the 2 1/2 years.

    Standings

    For a while it has been Flo and Ludwigzgz and then a gap, but after they came 2nd and 16th this month, it is now Flo followed by a gap, and three teams in a tussle for the podium.

    It looked as though being the only team with the big three of Evenepoel, Almeida and Higuita might make Ludwigzgz unassailable, but now it might not even be enough to guarantee a podium.

    We won't (in all probability) find the Tour winner among the riders in this game as we have the last two years, but one rider at least seems to be on track for a decent haul of points there (Hugo Koblet is the highest placed of the 5 teams with Vingegaard).  And there may be Olympic points to gain too before the next update.

    I wondered whether Hugo having Vingegaard would be enough to displace Flo, but she countered with Hayter and Bagioli to limit the damage.  It is hard to see the nine riders that Hugo has that are not also on Flo's team making up the 320 point difference, but not impossible.

    Year 3 Month 9 30 August to 4 October

    The eligible for this edition (but too young to consider when we were picking) Florian Vermeersch almost broke the duck of Emerging Riders (in these games) as winners of a monument: that might well happen today according to the bookies, but if it does the rider likely to be responsible is so widely picked that it won't make much difference.  But let's try to get this done before that happens.

    Rider points teams source
    EVENEPOEL Remco      407      28   Bronze in Euro and World TTs/silver in Euro RR/Bernocchi win/Emilia 5th

    A month ago it looked like there might be a late challenge, but Flo's team were having none of it.  The rest of October can be classified as a ceremonial Champs Elysses stage as far as we are concerned here.

    Many of the riders in our game have already finished for the season: quite a few more will have done so by the end of today, but there are still some points to be fought over so the (almost) final bulletin will be towards the end of the month.

    Until then, if it has survived the update in Google docs, here is the spreadsheet.

    Sorry I have taken my eyes off the ball on this for a while.

    I should be able to give some attention to the end of year round-ups for the three games in play  (including the finale of the 2019-21 version) over the next week or so.

    And I'll put up the launch post of the 2022-24 thread very shortly, but the key info you need in the meantime is 15th Jan.

    Well done to Flo, and to all who made a challenge of it.
    And of course, thanks and well done to the riders, whose hopes and dreams, fulfilled or otherwise, we have played with, and to the CQ website.

    All the numbers you could hope to analyse here.

    You can prove that this was not a fluke, or that you can do better really, in the 2022-24 edition.

    I may manage a bit more number crunching and comparison of this with previous editions in a few days: my next task is the Main CQ game, but after I have put my team in for that, I hope.

    Still above a few well established players of all the games.

    It isn't that teams below 10th had none of the best poss XVIII, I just listed them for the top 10 only.  But the fact that no-one got more than 6 of the best possible 18 picks shows that the game is trickier than it seems.

    Better luck in the 22-24 round...

    Vacek only got one point over the entire course of the game: If you had picked Higuita instead of him, you would have won by a huge margin.

    Big congrats Flo, well done.
    Thanks to AC for the organisation and the updates and all the players for playing.
    Taking into account I planned Evenepoel for 2020, I'm glad I'm not only the best non-Evenepoel team but also beat four of the Evenepoel teams.

    I have done a bit of analysis of this edition within the history of the game, but, unusually, I prepared it at CN and it is difficult to transfer tables from there to here, so I'll send you over there to read it.
