July of year 2
although the defining result of this update actually occurred on 2nd August, when the eventual pictures from San Sebastian showed Adam Yates descending alone to victory. Those 220 points are the highest one day spoils in the game so far, and make the second most popular Yates twin the second highest total scorer in the game (behind Alaphilippe)

YATES Adam 252 27 teams (San Sebastian win plus TdF top tens and finish)
VUILLERMOZ Alexis 191 1 team (Ludwigzgz; a win and a third on the Tour's two Murs, and 67 points for 26th in GC)
CAMPENAERTS Victor 152 2 teams (ItalianGigolo, NairoQ; 2nd in Tour de Wallonie)
HIRT Jan 141 2 teams (Blackbandit222, Dazed and Confused; 3rd in GC and stage points in Österreich-Rundfahrt)
VALLEE Boris 73 3 teams (Fus87, NairoQ, Ray200: 6th in Wallonie)
LATOUR Pierre 70 4 teams (ItalianGigolo, mc_mountain, Mellow Velo, The Fool on the Hill: 7th overall in Austria)
ALAPHILIPPE Julian 58 35 teams (8th in San Sebastian)
POLJANSKI Pawel 55 1 team (Flo, 9th in Austria)
KOSHEVOY Ilia 55 1 team (Hilltop Finisher: stage win and 13th overall in Qinghai Lake)
YATES Simon 51 42 teams (TdF finish and minor stage points, top 15 in San Seb)

Monthly scores:
Long term leader Ludwigzgz is yet again the top monthy scorer.
1 Ludwigzgz 692 (both Yates, Vuillermoz and Alaphilippe)
2 NairoQ 659 (both Yates, Campenaerts and Alaphilippe)
3 ItalianGigolo 650 (both Yates, Campenaerts and Alaphilippe)
4 Blackbandit222 579 (both Yates, Hirt and Alaphilippe)

Overall
That lead that has long looked irretrievable has just got 220 points wider, and the gap between 2nd and 3rd is extended by 300, now over 1000 points. Blackbandit goes up 2 spots to 4th, and Ingsve and Leadbelly get into the top ten.

Partly in the interest of trying to give Ludwigzgz some competition, and partly through the realisation of some of the talent that we all managed to miss, I introduce the "Collective Ignorance" selection, to counterbalance our "Collective Wisdom" squad. While the latter is made up of the riders chosen by most of us, this new squad, whose membership might vary, is made up of the highest scoring eligible riders that we all overlooked. And what a collective failure it was:
THEUNS Edward 1108
BENOOT Tiesj 781
ROGLIC Primoz 688
DEMOITIE Antoine 544
NAESEN Oliver 462
PARRINELLO Antonino Casimiro 425
GRADEK Kamil 416
BEVIN Patrick 414
SHALUNOV Evgeny 401
TEUNS Dylan 401
BERNAS Pawel 387
TVETCOV Serghei 386
BARBIER Rudy 381
TULIK Angelo 372
DAVIDENOK Ilya 372
TORRES AGUDELO Rodolfo Andres 363
MÜHLBERGER Gregor 359
CANOLA Marco 344
Total: 8604

Ludwigzgz still beats that team, but no-one else does, and if it had not been for his unique pick, Vuillermoz would also be in the collective ignorance squad.

Good fun to see the list of riders we didn't pick but we shouldn't feel to bad about it. I can't explain it in a good way but statistically the odds are against us as there are so many riders out there and hindsight is a beautiful thing. Or in other words, you could also easily compile a lteam of 18 riders (probably dozens of them) none of us picked that haven't scored a single point - the ultimate zero team. And we all beat that one.

It is probably a factor of how much those riders had been below the parapet in terms of hype before their careers really got going: no bookies offering pdds of them doing a Tour victory sometime before 2020.

Extraordinary breakthroughs are what the game was set up to identify, but the more extraordinary ones are those that no-one foresaw.

So had Theuns, Benoot, Vuillermoz really been unrecognised 20 months ago when we compiled these squads?

Wow, I find it quite impressivee that Ludwigzgz's team is better than the "collective ignorance" team. Well done! Also, no one picked Benoot? :eek:

August year 2
For the first time since February, no rider got above 200 points in the month, but there are still some noteworthy performances gaining 100+. I tweaked the spreadsheet such that I can now frustrate all of us over the high scoring eligible riders, not just the ones that someone else picked.

September and first half of October, year 2
Firstly, an apology. Early October did not pass smoothly, so I ended up thinking I would wait and do a joint September/October update, but then it turned out that there has been no downloadable update since 18 October. So you have waited until 3 November to find out the state of play on 18 October.

So what happened in the 6 weeks to this stage of being a year before the end of the game?

Points earned
Lots of points for those we did not pick, including Olivier Pardini who seems to be having his emergence at 30 years of age.
JANS Roy 261 1 team (unique pick for Vladimir, top5s in Brussels, GP d'Isbergues, Munsterland, Paris-Tours, and other decent results)
GOUGEARD Alexis 248 8 teams (A stage win in the Vuelta, and Eurometropole)
YATES Adam 232 27 teams (2nd in Montreal and in Tour of Alberta)
PRADES REVERTER Eduard 199 0
BENOOT Tiesj 175 0

DE BIE Sean 170 12 teams (win in Impanis-Van Petegem)
FEDI Andrea 156 0
MARINI Nicolas 155 0
GERTS Floris 140 0
PARDINI Olivier 139 0

VUILLERMOZ Alexis 137 1 team (Ludwigzgz' not-now-so-secret weapon: significant enough placings at Montreal, Languedoc-Rousillon and Lombardia to get these points)
STACCHIOTTI Riccardo 130 0
LAPORTE Christophe 127 0
THEUNS Edward 125 0
DOULL Owain 125 0
ARIESEN Johim 116 0

VERONA QUINTANILLA Carlos 115 5 teams (not very high placings, but Vuelta and Lombardia are races with high point yields)
CLAEYS Dimitri 112 0

LAMPAERT Yves 105 3 teams (6th in Paris-Tours, and part of the Etixx WC TTT team)
SPRENGERS Thomas 101 0
BIALOBLOCKI Marcin 101 0


Team Points won
Having the top scorer as a unique pick did not do Vladimir much good: he still came 37th this month, mainly because most of Yates' 27 teams had more successful minor scorers. Del1962, Mutschi, Ludwigzgz, and Leadbelly combine Gougeard and A Yates, De Bie and Gougeard both featured in the teams of Hugo Koblet and Madrazo, while Cyivel, Fus87, Ingsve, Kazistuta, NairoQ and Tuarts all put De Bie and Adam Yates together.

Standings
Another high placing in the monthly table, another extension to Ludwigzgz' lead. The top two end the season as they started it, and it is increasingly hard to see their choices of nearly 2 years ago being surpassed. Hugo Koblet consolidates his second place, Tuart sneaks into the top ten, and Mutschi's 9 place rise is the greatest change.

Will be interesting to see if anybody can unseat the top 2, I guess not. This game was fun for two seasons now, can't wait for the last one to begin.

End of Year 2
Not much scoring since mid-October, but there have been some gains.

KOZHATAYEV Bakhtiyar 62pts 1 team (7th overall in Tour of Hainan for Froome19)
SILVESTRE Fabio Andre Tomas 25pts 4 teams (stage points in Hainan for Comodoro, Dazed and Confused, Florecita and Oliveira)
KOLAHDOUZ HAGH Amir 12pts 2 teams (I'll be honest, I hadn't heard of the Tours of Singkarak and Fuzhou, but they still give points to Fauniera and Geraint Too Fast)
FOMINYKH Daniil 9pts 3 teams (Hainan again, for Bellsax, Cyivel and Rote Laterne)
CERNY Josef 5pts 1 team (The Fool on the Hill also gains from Hainan)

So for the end of Year 2, Froome19 moves up two places, and Comodoro up 1 (18Valve and Del1962 yielding)

Although he was a popular pick for the game that started a year later, no-one spotted Jakub Marezco two years ago, but his domination of the Tour of Taihu Lake (and a decent haul in Hainan) lifts him into the Collective ignorance team, and that helped that fluctuating group to move ahead of Ludwigzgz.

If we look at the current game points of those who are in the Collective Wisdom team (all in at least 1/3 of teams), we can see the varying level of successes of those who were most hyped 24 months ago:
YATES Adam 1261
ALAPHILIPPE Julian 1184
FORMOLO Davide 946
EWAN Caleb 811
YATES Simon 750
SENECHAL Florian 428
KUDUS GHEBREMEDHIN Merhawi 372
HENAO GOMEZ Sebastian 345
STUYVEN Jasper 318
HEPBURN Michael 304
HERKLOTZ Silvio 259
ZABEL Rick 233
HANSEN Lasse Norman 233
HOWSON DAMIEN 176
EDMONDSON Joshua 175
MOHORIC Matej 152
LUDVIGSSON Fredrik 57
ZORDAN Andrea 5

How will that inform your submissions for the 2016-18 game?

I'm expecting points for Howson in the Australien ITT NC and maybe for Ewan in the road race.

Quite interesting to look back on my team for this game (I'm actually not doing terrible for once)
What a difference 2 years make. Alaphilippe, the Yateses, Ewan and Valgren are already rather successful riders and good picks. Others aren't as great :p

First race and first points thanks to Damien Howson for me and 29 other players.

Shouldn't this be Simon who as I remember was more popular back then?
