Those two decent performances in the first couple of years have somehow kept me in the top ten: I have had 6 bad years in a row since.

Great statictics, love this. Just a small note - didn't snccdcno participate in this game before 2015 under a different name? I seem to recall something about that. I do not want to take anything from his well-deserved 3rd place that year, just for the sake of statistical accuracy.

And technically, 2011 winner should also be "the best rookie" :)

I have no idea about any aliases snccdcno may have, unfortunately. If anybody can verify, I'll fix the stats.

I sent you a DM as I don't post here any more but doesn't seem like you have seen it, Peter is correct.

Oh, my bad, didn't see it until now! The "1 new message" sign could do with being a bit more flashy ;)

Thanks for running this game. It was fun. I'm going to try to put a team together for next year.

This is great to see, thanks for the record-keeping!

Squire wrote:Right, so with Guybrush's score quite insignificantly beefed up by 2 points, here are the all-time overall scores etc.

Top overall score
Rank, name, total score
1 (-) skidmark 110370
2 (-) Kazistuta 105933
3 (-) MADRAZO 105687
4 (-) Hugo Koblet 104435
5 (-) EvansIsTheBest 102131
6 (+2) Ferminal 97985
7 (-1) Armchair cyclist 96869
8 (+2) Jpettersen 96730
9 (+4) Object 96208
10 (-3) will10 96206

There were minimal differences between skidmark and Kazistuta this year so the gap stays almost the same, but Madrazo in 3rd makes up almost 2000 points on Kazistuta. No changes in position in the top 5, but I'm surprised it's still possible to jump 4 spots like Object did, considering none of the top 15 missed this year's edition. It's still a requirement to have participated in all 8 editions to make the top 10, but Geraint Too Fast with 7 participations isn't too far back: In 11th just 3 points behind will10!

Average placement (3+ participations)
Rank, name, (no. of participations), average placement
1 (New) Hakkie2 (3) 14
2 (-) The Hitch (5) 16
3 (-2) Geraint Too Fast (7) 18
4 (+2) Squire (6) 21
5 (-) gustienordic (4) 24
6 (-3) skidmark (8) 25
7 (-3) Kazistuta (8) 26
8 (-1) Nyssinator (3) 26
9 (-1) Cykeltyven (3) 27
10 (+10) Ruvu75 (4) 27

Hakkie2 set out to conquer the top of this list back in January, and duly delivered! With a record of 20th, 12th and 10th over the last three years, it's thoroughly deserved! This year's winner Ruvu75 makes a massive leap into the top 10, while Geraint Too Fast loses the lead. However, Geraint Too Fast's extraordinary record of never finishing outside the top 30 is kept intact by a slim margin. A lot of points from Gianni Moscon's great end to the season carries GTF's team into 28th place.

Top weekly scores
Rank, name, weekly score, (after which race)
1 Ben1376 2146 (Giro d'Italia 2014)
2 fauniera 2101 (Giro d'Italia 2014)
3 CQmanager 2063 (Tour de France 2015)
4 Kwibus 1962 (Vuelta a Espana 2011)
5 kurtinsc 1940 (Vuelta a Espana 2011)
6 Milanello 1930 (Giro d'Italia 2014)
7 Ruvu75 1899 (Tour de France 2015)
8 highoctane 1885 (Giro d'Italia 2014)
9 Slow_Rider 1875 (Giro d'Italia 2014)
10 MCardinalR 1874 (Giro d'Italia 2014)

No new entries in the top 10 of the top weekly scores since 2015. Pantani1 posts the biggest week of 2018 with 1806 points after the Tour de France, enough for 14th best week of all time.

Top yearly scores
Rank, name, yearly score, (year)
1 skidmark 19372 (2012)
2 Kvinto 18106 (2012)
3 Nyssinator 17785 (2012)
4 FF'Wilco 17116 (2012)
5 TeoSheva 17096 (2012)
6 Armchair cyclist 17092 (2012)
7 EvansIsTheBest 16911 (2012)
8 ruvu75 16513 (2018)
9 mc_mountain 16479 (2012)
10 shalgo 16446 (2012)

For the first time since 2012: A new entry in the top yearly scores list! Ruvu75 with 16513 points is the one to finally break into the top 10. This makes 2018 the 2nd highest scoring year of all time. We now have 3 teams above 16000 points in non-2012 years: Ruvu75 and my own team (Squire, with 16099 points) join Cykeltyven's 2015 team, which scored 16209 points.

Most popular picks
Rank, name, percentage of teams, (year)
1 BOONEN Tom 92 % (2014)
2 KITTEL Marcel 92 % (2016)
3 SCHLECK Andy 90 % (2013)
4 HUSHOVD Thor 89 % (2013)
5 CAVENDISH Mark 89 % (2018)
6 DEGENKOLB John 89 % (2017)
7 NIZZOLO Giacomo 86 % (2018)
8 HENAO MONTOYA Sergio Luis 86 % (2015)
9 COQUARD Bryan 85 % (2018)
10 EWAN Caleb 85 % (2015)

A few very popular picks in 2018, with all of Cavendish, Nizzolo and Coquard making the top 10 of most obvious picks of all time. Among them, Nizzolo was the only really successful pick, with a 444 point return on a cost of 66.

Top overall picks
Rank, name, overall picks
1 (+1) PHINNEY Taylor 358
2 (-1) DOMBROWSKI Joseph Lloyd 348
3 (-) BETANCUR GOMEZ Carlos Alberto 346
4 (+1) MOSER Moreno 327
5 (-1) GOSS Matthew 289
6 (+15) CAVENDISH Mark 276
7 (+15) CHAVES RUBIO Jhoan Esteban 268
8 (-) EWAN Caleb 260
9 (-3) SCHLECK Andy 257
10 (+18) LOPEZ MORENO Miguel Angel 255

Phinney is back on top. All of the top 4 had a substantial number of backers this year as well. "It has to be this year! It has to be this year!"

I just had a feeling...

Forgot that I've gotta do a bit of extra work (update the create your team spreadsheet etc) so I'm gonna try to finish it before I go out in an hour or so, but if it doesn't show up it'll show up in the next day. Get your engines revved!
