The 2023 Auto-Wildcard Race
« on: January 25, 2022, 19:09 »
I'm still of the opinion that this "race" shouldn't be going ahead this year and thus gently encourage/force Alpecin to go WT via the 2020-22 league. It's a bit silly that they have it better than the WT teams and even with a injured MVDP they'll no doubt win this again.

However Raul Banqueri thinks it's going ahead and he also thinks that relegated teams from the WT will be eligible for this competition.

If correct, maybe things aren't so bleak for Lotto after all.

Even with their poor season in 2021 they still finished 1500+ points ahead of Total and obviously even further ahead of B&B and Uno-X.

    The league table, assuming that Alpecin have asked for a WT spot.

    Lotto and Cofidis are currently the teams missing out, but of course that could change over the coming months.

    Lotto increase their lead in this competition. Even if they can't surmount their deficit in the the 3-yr event, they have a second bite at the cherry here.

    IPT could very easily be behind Total if they fell into the relegation zone any time this season.

    After a great start to the season Uno-X seem to have stalled recently which has allowed IPT to move into the "silver ticket" position.
