2017 Giro CQ game

26 Apr 2017 22:28

I have decided to launch this a little earlier than usual. The Giro starts on a Friday, the preceding Monday is a public holiday in many countries, CQ have often not made the weekly download available until later than the usual Monday early evening: there are ways it could have gone a bit pear shaped, so I have decided to use the prices from last Sunday, rather than the Sunday immediately preceding the race as I have normally done. I guess that means that anyone riding in Romandie this week is a bit cheaper than they would have been if I had waited, anyone who was in it last year gets to be slightly dearer.

So although I am launching it now, there is no great need to hurry with your selection: by all means wait until teams are more settled. As previously, there is a spreadsheet which will make sure you have used the appropriate price, avoid you going over budget, and give the right versions of names: here it is at dropbox.


The rest of the intro many of you will be familiar with, but new contestants are very welcome:


Team of exactly nine riders
Budget Budget will be 3500 points. If you don't leave your team until the last moment, I'll be able to warn you of errors: if it is later than my going to bed on Thursday night, I'm unlikely to able to help. If you are over budget, I'll take out the cheapest rider who can be replaced with a cheaper member of his team that will bring you into budget: if you pick someone who is not riding, I'll replace him with the next cheapest of his team, or the next cheapest in the race if there is not one in his team.

Price of riders
CQ score for 12 months to 23rd April, for which the update file that CQ released on Monday 24th will be considered definitive.
There is a dropbox spreadsheet of riders likely to participate and their prices for the game, and a facility for checking the team total.

Submitting your team
By personal message to me, either here or at Velorooms.
Please send the team with names formatted as per CQ. (Surname[space]Forename and nothing else: Spanish/Portuguese names need particular care, as do accents or other diacritics) It makes an enormous difference to the efficiency of adding teams. If you use the dropbox spreadsheet it will be a simple copy and paste job.

I have lodged my team with ChrisDK, the first person to submit a team, and won't change it unless any of them drop out.

Deadline
The start of the race, which I believe to be Friday 5th May at noon (Italian time) (but don't expect any analysis of teams until I get in from work that evening).

Scoring
Points issued according to the points tables of CQ (column GT2). Note there are no points issued for the young rider category.

Entries
will be listed here, hopefully updated daily. If you have not seen your name 24 hours after submitting it, drop me a reminder. If you are on another forum, by all means plug it there.

The 46 teams in the game are:
AG
AmisVelo

The points earned by a retired rider are considered valid?

Retired riders are unlikely to gain points during the Giro: I'm not sure what you mean.

Might mean retired within the race?

In which case yes.

Sorry: I see what you mean. Riders can get stage points, Pink Jersey wearer points, GC points, and points in the Points and KoM categories.

Stage points are safe (unless a disqualification is ruled before the end of the last day) from the day they are won, even if the rider subsequently withdraws. The same is true of leader's jersey points. Clearly, a rider who drops out cannot get points in the classifications in the final analysis.

I will be publishing guaranteed points (only stage and Pink jersey) standings, and projected points (if the Giro were to finish with the GC/points/KoM standings as they currently are) standings after each stage.

Well, I suppose Boonen is probably technically still registered with Quick Step, unlikely as they are to call him up. I edit all riders not on teams in the Giro from the list of prices, I leave the others in case you hear of team changes before I do. I thought it tactful to remove Michele Scarponi: I guess Boonen was not on my mind at the time. I'll try to remember to remove him next time I'm editing it.

At least it is good to know the selector SSheet is being used...

Thanks for hosting as always armchair, I'll be entering. And the spreadsheet is very helpful.

A small tip for all entrants that I'm hosting a different kind of Giro Fantasy Manager over at First Cycling, an auction based game where riders go to the highest bidder and managers assemble a nine man team within a set budget: http://firstcycling.com/forathread.php?f=5321

With all the teams except Willier confirmed, and two and half days left before the deadline, we have 15 teams so far. Some have been thrown by the expected selections of Clarke and Cimolai not being confirmed, so I am awaiting some revisions.

2 riders are clear favourites in terms of popularity so far, each on 3/4 of the teams or more: after them, there are only 4 others that are on more than 1/4 of teams. 49 riders have been picked, 23 of them unique picks.

Remember that the race starts on Friday, and the deadline for entries is the waving of that flag in Alghero (12:25 CET): if you don't get your team to me before I go to bed on Thursday night (about midnight UK time), I won't be able to check it.

All the Clarke/Cimolai/failure to count accurately to 9 issues have been addressed.

A few extra teams are in (23 now), but if numbers are going to hold up to previous years I m hoping for a last day rush.

Those 23 teams feature 61 of the 197 riders in the race: 32 of them are unique picks. One is omitted by only 2 teams, one is on nearly 3/4 of teams, a third is also more selected than omitted, and one more is very close to that 50% selection mark. 4 teams combine all 4 of these top picks, but we all know that the popularity of a rider is no guarantee of his success.

Just over 28 hours as of the timestamp on this post to get your teams in: good luck.

Team in, first time I participate in a GT CQ game.

GT games are always quite a lottery, so I don't have the biggest expectations.

I am guessing that at least some teams will need to make some last-minute substitutions.

The automatic replacements for Ruffoni and Pirazzi according to the game rules above would be Albanese and Andreeta respectively.

I'm guessing that is not the best way of using their points that the 9 teams still affected (some have already contacted me) would choose.

I'll PM the teams involved, and please get back to me as soon as possible with your change.

I guess I can extend the deadline a bit in the circumstances: I think it would it be fair if I said that affected times (but only affected teams) can have until 6pm (UK time) Friday evening, as I won't have a chance to put up team summaries much before that, on condition they do not pick anyone who scores points tomorrow (no restriction on changes before race starts, obviously). Fair?

All the Pirazzi/Ruffoni teams got themselves sorted before the race started, so no need for special dispensations after all.

No new entries after the early hours of this morning, so 46 teams aboard, all with 9 starters.

I'm just in from work: I'll watch the last few km then start putting the analysis together.

Rider popularity

There are 195 riders in the race (22x9, minus Astana's non-replacement of Scarponi and two Bardiani fools): 80 of themhave been selected.

Of the 46 teams, how many chose each rider?
(The nine riders in bold are the Collective Wisdom team: to simply take the nine most popular riders would be so wildly over budget as to make comparison with managers' teams meaningless. This combination is slightly below budget at 3404 pts)

42: LANDA MEANA Mikel
26: NIBALI Vincenzo
25: KRUIJSWIJK Steven, FOLIFOROV Alexander
21: FRAILE MATARRANZ Omar
19: ZAKARIN Ilnur
13: PINOT Thibaut, VAN GARDEREN Tejay
10: THOMAS Geraint, KANGERT Tanel, GASPAROTTO Enrico, TIRALONGO Paolo
9: YATES Adam, ROLLAND Pierre, PONZI Simone, AGNOLI Valerio
8: GAVIRIA RENDON Fernando
7: POZZOVIVO Domenico, FIRSANOV Sergey, PELUCCHI Matteo, CICCONE Giulio
6: FORMOLO Davide
5: EDMONDSON Alexander, VAN DEN BROECK Jurgen, SAVITSKY Ivan, KOZONTCHUK Dmitriy
4: MODOLO Sacha, AMADOR BIKKAZAKOVA Andrey, KONRAD Patrick, HIRT Jan
3: JUNGELS Bob, BENNETT Sam, CATALDO Dario, HANSEN Jesper, MARTINEZ POVEDA Daniel Felipe, KISERLOVSKI Robert, ALAFACI Eugenio
2: WOODS Michael, CARTHY Hugh, BAUHAUS Phil, POLANC Jan, DOMBROWSKI Joseph Lloyd, LUDVIGSSON Tobias, PETILLI Simone, HEPBURN Michael, RAVASI Edward, RODRIGUEZ MARTIN Cristian, KOSHEVOY Ilia, AMEZQUETA MORENO Julen

and the 31 unique picks can be seen in the team lists above, marked with an asterisk.
