Year 1, Month 1 Up to 2nd February

The first update is probably of little significance to the final scores, but offers an early slice of pride, and gives me a few mouth in heart moments as I see whether the spreadsheet does what it should.

Top ten scorers who were selected:
HOLMES Matthew   65 points, mainlyfor finally dethroning Porte on Wilunga Hill, for Del1962, hfgon1 and Lukas CPH
HAILU Biniam Girmay   45 (two stage wins and a third in Tropicale Amissa Bongo) for 6 teams
VIVIANI Attilio   34 (stage and some other points in Amissa Bongo)   10
OLDANI Stefano   32 (5th in Trofeo Playa de Palma)   5
BUITRAGO SANCHEZ Santiago   23 (19th on GC in TDU); Josedin, Otoxiep87
RIVERA VARGAS Brandon Smith   20 (4th in Colombian TT nat's); hfgon1, Josedin
VANHOUCKE Harm   18 pts   1 teams
DINA Marton   16   1
DRIZNERS Jarrad   16   1
PEÑALVER ANIORTE Manuel   16   2

but TESFATSION Natnael Ocbit and LEVASSEUR Jordan both scored over 100 this month, and FLOREZ LOPEZ Miguel Eduardo, MORIN Emmanuel, MULUBRHAN Henok and PAREDES AVELLANEDA Cesar Nicolas got 50 or more.  They might be serious misses, or they might never reach these heights again, but history tells us that most of us will have some members of our teams who will score fewer points in the three years than these guys have this month.

Standings
Everyone is off the mark (mainly through popular picks Viviani, Rutsch and Cepeda), and our first leader is a newcomer to these games.

1   hfgon1   150 ( mainly from Holmes, Hailu and Rivera)
2   LukasCPH   138 (Holmes and Viviani)
3   Josedin   99 (Viviani, Buitrago, Vivera)
3   Skidmark   99  (Hailu, Viviani)
5   Kazistuta   94   (Hailu, Viviani)
6   AmisVelo   92 (Hailu, Oldani)
7   Del_1962   85
8   Blues_in_the_Bottle   81
9   SafeBet   71
10   Armchair_Cyclist   65
11   MuddyWaters   64
11   Squire   64
13   Scrooll07   63
14   JonEzeitza   62
15   Fivezzz   59
16   Nicosix   55
17   AlyKaptan   54
18   Koronin   47
19   Madrazo   44
19   Otoxiep87   44
21   Northerner   40
22   Leadbelly   34
23   LosBrolin   32
24   Comodoro   31
25   Cordi   29
26   RoteLaterne   24
27   Laarsland   21
28   Archieboy   19
28   Joelsim   19
28   Ray10   19
31   Karaev   14
32   Ludwigzgz   11
33   Vladimir   10
   CollectiveWisdom   54
   CollectiveIgnorance*   839

*  For those new to the updates, or who never quite got their heads around it: the Collective Ignorance team is the 18 highest scoring riders that none of us picked.  Unlike the other teams, this team changes its make-up as the game progresses, and so is always exceptionally good early on in the game.  It drops back into the same range of scores as most of us by around the middle of year two, but it serves to draw our attention, and our embarrassment, to those we omitted.

Updates should be roughly monthly, but don't be surprised if there are longer gaps when a GT game is in progress. 

Don't gloat or despair on the basis of this, this is no more than looking for a position at the beginning of a long ride.
