Default 2012 Giro d'Italia CQ game

2012 Giro d'Italia game is here! As promised, we have an addition to our current 2012 CQ Manager game. The game is open to anyone and if you have missed the 2012 CQ Manager deadline, now is your time to show us what you got.

2012 Giro d'Italia game rules:

The goal is to score as many points from the Giro as possible. All players will start with zero points and whoever has the most points from the Giro at the end of the game is the winner.

1. Go to http://game.cqmanager.net/
2. Select 9 riders (must be riding the 2012 Giro d'Italia!)
3. Buying power is 3000 CQ points. Riders value/cost is based on current CQ ranking value and the final CQ value will be updated on Monday April 30th 2012. (Now updated!)
4. Deadline is Saturday May 5th 2012 9:00 CET. You can edit your team freely until the deadline.
5. Points are awarded for each stage and general classification based on this chart: http://cqmanager.net/points/
6. Weekly updates will be available on CQmanager.net every Monday and final update should be up on May 30th 2012
7. Winner will get: Bragging rights and a prize which is still TBD

Website login: If you are a current 2012 CQ Manager game player and need password, please contact CQmanager through private message on CN forums!

Disclaimer: this is a beta version of a Grand Tour game based on the current CQ Manager game and we are planning to bring the same game for TDF and Vuelta. The game website is still work in progress and and your understanding and feedback is appreciated!

This is very cool! I'm looking forward to it and have already thought quite a bit of my team (there's one guy who's at least a 99% safe choice )
I was gonna open this thread tomorrow, but it's fine that you, CQmanager, did it today instead!

Sorry about that, I was hoping you would do it but I was getting too many repeated questions. You can edit the post on the website as I'm not very good at writing and explaining the game

Does anyone know of any site listing provisional squads, rather than flipping between dozens of news items.

Edit: answer my own question, and in hope of it helping others: http://uk.yahoo.eurosport.com/cyclin...ntrylist.shtml Don't know how assiduously updated it will be

I would absolutely recommend Cyclingfever over any other source for correct startlist. At least they have already updated with Fränk Schleck and Volodmyr Gustov, and they have a good track record for most races.

+10.

Haven't picked yet, but it has to be said there are some ridiculous bargains there - I think I'm going to struggle to spend 3k.

I just want to confirm that rider values are those in the "current CQ ranking," i.e. the rolling one-year total, not the "rider ranking 2012," which counts only points from this calendar year.

Correct, not the 2011 value but the current CQ values. The numbers are now updated and the team selection page has correct values for all riders.
