While doing this, we changed the total amount of points for each category as little as possible. We still didn't look for mathematical perfection, because we wanted to keep some recognizable, well-known numbers.

- We split up the category 2.WT in 2.WT1 (Paris-Nice, Tirreno-Adriatico, Vuelta al Pais Vasco, Dauphiné, Tour de Suisse) and 2.WT2 (the other WT-stage races).

- More riders receive points in categories 2.1, 2.2 and NC3.

- The points in WC U23 are now equal to NC3.
Hmm, have to look at this in more depth but my initial reaction is that this is great, I've always felt a bit weird about riders getting the same for Poland or Beijing as Suisse or Paris-Nice. Might mess up a few of my picks that I had pegged for getting a starting role in some lesser WT races, but probably won't affect much.

Was unaware of this. Might have to shuffle a few riders

I had some fun creating a few different teams - one with just my favourite riders, a serious team, all pro-conti team, all sprinter team, all anglophone team, etc. But I couldn't decide which one to submit, so I've gone for a combination of all of them (which conveniently adds up to exactly 7500 points ).

Points
1000+: 3
500-1000: 3
100-500: 5
<100: 22

Regions
Europe: 24
Australasia: 5
South America: 2
North America: 1
Africa: 1

Teams
ProTour: 20
Pro-Conti: 9
Continental: 4

It might not be the most competitive team, but it will keep me interested for the whole year.

I hope I can at least do better than last year and perhaps even get back up to the top 10 or 20. Last year I had 11 riders that failed to improve on their cost and a couple more that just barely made a profit. Hopefully I'll have fewer of that this year but who knows.

This means that quite a few teams are now above the 7500 limit and these will have to PM me with their changes. If I don't hear anything before the deadline, I will just remove the cheapest possible rider to get the team in question under 7500 points.

The teams are:

Afrank: 7504
AntonioRossi: 7513
Blues in the bottle: 7502
cineteq: 7505
coinneach: 7508
CraZyCaLL: 7503
GP Blanco: 7507
Handbrake: 7508
Mellow Velo: 7506
Object: 7501
Pentacycle: 7507
Phoenix118: 7505
The Amateur: 7506
Total Package: 7502
vladimir: 7501
will10: 7501
Zam_Olyas: 7505
Wow, that's annoying

PM inbound Hugo.

Just PM'ed Hugo my updated team.
Limited myself to just one adjustment, and left out the last rider to make the final cut. It turned out that my probably most obscure rider had gained four points at the final update to push me one point over the limit.Was a bit tempted to leave him out, but since I had great joy of following the likes of Kuznetsov this year, I decided to keep all my more obscure riders

Just read this.

Took ages getting my crap team below 7500, only for somebody to get a Rasmussen raise.
Nobody's fault, but some will get stung even before we start.

I think it would be a good idea to set the points deadline a week or so ahead of the actual deadline, to avoid hassle for both competitors and organizer.

Like having the final rankings published on 31 Dec, and entries not closing until 5 Jan you mean?

Not to my benefit (since my current team is 50 points under the limit anyway ) but a pedant might point out that since 2012 was an olympic year, 7500 points will represent a smaller overall ratio to the average score of a wt rider, than it did in 2010 or 2011 or will in 2013, and therefore a more accurate reflection of the previous limits would be something like 7510 points
