2017 Tour de France CQ game

26 Jun 2017 06:32

Many of you will be expecting this: here it is.

What you need to do
*Choose 9 riders taking part in the Tour.
*Ensure that the total "cost" of your team is 4000 pts or fewer, using the CQ ranking over 12 months to 25th June as the price for each rider.
*PM your team to me, using the CQ name format (surname, then forename, nothing else, no team no price), by start of the race (15:15 German time on Sat 1 July)
*Check the list of entries at the end of this opening post, and nudge me if your name does not appear within 24 of submitting it.
*Hope that your team gains more CQ points during the race than any other.
*Enjoy.

What I'll do
*I'll check that your 9 riders are taking part, and that the team is within budget. If you submit the team in good time, I'll let you know if there are problems with your selection.
*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.
*I'll assist you in collating a team by putting up a spreadsheet on dropbox with the riders named to start and their price: Here it is, with apologies for the delay.
*I'll smile gratefully and be relieved if you submit your name in the proper CQ format: I will gnash my teeth and curse quietly if you don't, and might ask you to send it again, especially if you are an old hand at the game.
*I'll allocate points as issued by CQ for the race: there are points for all finishers, with a sliding scale of points for those finishing 1st to 50th; for the top ten in each stage , the yellow jersey wearer each day, and top ten in green and polka-dot (but not white) jersey competitions:full points here.
*I'll post the teams and some analysis of them on Saturday once entries are closed.
*I'll put up (real life permitting) daily updates of a green jersey classification and the main (yellow jersey) standings.
*I'll update the list of entries in this opening post at least once a day during the build up to the race.
*I'll send my team to the first manager to submit a team lest anyone think I am stealing their ideas. (That was DJW at Velorooms: he is the guardian of my conscience for the next three weeks)
*I'll despair quietly as my team drops into lower half of the table obscurity by the middle of week two, as it so often has before

What we will need to do collectively
Think about whether we want/need to change the format of the game next year to reflect the move from 9-man to 8-man teams. There is no reason why the team size in the game must reflect the teams in real life, but maybe some people like to compare. The main options would be a) keep everything as it is; b) reduce to teams of 8, with a corresponding change in budget (4000*8/9 = 3556, so 3500 or 3600); or c) change to 8 riders but keep the budget as it is. Thoughts?

Entrants To just after midnight (BST) on Saturday morning (just): 14 hours (I think) from the datestamp on this post for 11th hour entries.

One team was overbudget and the manager has accepted the automatic swap per the rules, all other teams correct and within budget (and correctly formatted: thanks guys)

Still no update from CQ, so I can't put up the team selection spreadsheet yet, but hopefully it will be not too late tomorrow. Maybe Quickstep will have finalised their team by then too...

The Team selection spreadsheet is finally up at Dropbox: Here it is. (and updated for Zubeldia in place of naughty Cardoso)

Many thanks to Search at VeloRooms, who had prepared a price list that would have been ideal for use if CQ hadn't finally made available their update 2 minutes before I was ready to post it.

I would advise to downgrade the number of riders to 8 to keep it realistic.

Only 15 teams up to early on Friday morning, which is a bit disappointing.

This will bump it up the board as a reminder to others.

56 of the 198 riders are represented among those 15 teams: 2 are on 10 or more teams, 2 more on more than half, and there are 31 unique picks.

A day and a bit to go, let's get those entries in, before the first man rolls down the ramp in Dusseldorf...

I agree with keeping the number of riders the same as for the real teams--so 8 next year.

Yes: it's all part of the challenge: you can't have 8 riders (excluding cheapest man Tulik) for more than 3984.

Good luck, if that means back to the drawing board.

I kind of knew this. But I have a team I'm very pleased with for 4001 points. :o
Why couldn't Tulik just let Deltombe pass him in the closing meters of Clasica de Almeria back in February?

So true. Being on vacation I thought I won't find time to put a team together. But it's so tough this time that just spending 30 minutes thanks to AC spreadsheet won't make much difference.

I do hope for a good participation otherwise my spot top 20 should be certain. :lol:

Rider popularity

26 (out of 38) teams: VOECKLER Thomas
22: BETANCUR GOMEZ Carlos Alberto
20: ARU Fabio
19: MEINTJES Louis
16: KITTEL Marcel
16: TULIK Angelo
12: KISERLOVSKI Robert
12: PORTE Richie
11: BOUDAT Thomas
11: NAVARRO GARCIA Daniel

From those 10, I had to drop Porte to create the highest possible popularity score team within budget as the Collective Wisdom squad. (That team is however about 700 below budget, and with Porte in place of Boudat it would be about would be about 700 over: I might see if I can set up a compromise with a score that averages out the contributions of Porte and Boudat)

Other frequencies of selection:
9: CINK Ondrej, POLJANSKI Pawel
7: BUCHMANN Emanuel
6: BARGUIL Warren, BOZIC Borut, BRAJKOVIC Janez, PAUWELS Serge
5: BARDET Romain, KREUZIGER Roman, MCLAY Daniel
4: BEVIN Patrick, BROWN Nathan, CAVENDISH Mark, DE GENDT Thomas, GESBERT Elie, SEPULVEDA Eduardo, SWIFT Ben
3: AMADOR BIKKAZAKOVA Andrey, CUMMINGS Stephen, FUGLSANG Jakob, LATOUR Pierre, MAJKA Rafal, TALANSKY Andrew, URAN URAN Rigoberto

Major picks

Mid-price picks, apart from youngsters Meintjes and Buchmann, have not been a big factor in many teams. Most of us found little value in that price range, so even more than usual this edition is about picking your main man/men, some potential breakaway points among the inexpensive, and cheap as possible makeweights who might get 20 points for finishing.

So if we consider anyone costing >2x the average budget per rider (which is 888 pts or more, but I've also included Cavendish @885), who has gone for whom?

(Ordered by price of most expensive rider)

Froome: Armchair Cyclist
with Cavendish: Bicycle Boy

Porte: AG Capt Cavman Del1963 Josedin
with Bardet: Blues in the Bottle
with Aru: Hakkie2 Los Brolin
with Kittel: Bikeracer33
with Aru and Kittel: Just Some Guy Kabete Shalgo
with Kittel and Groenewegen: Geraint TooFast

Contador with Cavendish: Scrool07

Martin D with Aru: Laarsland

Demare: Rote Laterne

Bardet with Majka: Al Pacino
with Aru: Amis Velo
with Fuglsang: DJW
with Aru and Kittel: Hugo87

Izaguirre with Majka and Kittel: LightBing

Roglic with Kittel: ThePirate81

Majka with Aru: Comodoro

Bouhanni with Pinot: Trudgin

Aru: Carlo Algatrensig Vladimir
with Kittel: Fauniera GPBlanco Minessa Search Squire
with Fuglsang: LeadBelly
with Kittel and Fuglsang: Mellow Velo
With Pinot and Cavendish: Yellow Knight
with Greipel and Cavendish: RattaKuningas

Kittel: Hayabusa
with Groenewegen: Kazistuta

Stage 1 Dusseldorf Time Trial

Green Jersey competition
These are the guaranteed points that your rider will get even if he fails to reach Paris. They are earned from top ten stage finishes and earning the yellow jersey.

THOMAS Geraint 100 1 team
KÜNG Stefan 50 2 teams
KIRYIENKA Vasil 35 0 team
MARTIN Tony 25 1 team
TRENTIN Matteo 15 0 team
FROOME Chris 10 2 teams
VAN EMDEN Jos 5 0 team
KWIATKOWSKI Michal 3 0 team
KITTEL Marcel 2 16 teams
BOASSON HAGEN Edvald 1 0 team

And it should be obvious which teams get their points from which riders:
1 CaptCavman 100
2 GPBlanco 52
3 Josedin 50
4 AG 25
5= Armchair_Cyclist, BicycleBoy 10
7 Bikeracer33, Fauniera, GeraintTooFast, Hayabusa, Hugo87, JustSomeGuy, Kabete, Kazistuta, LightBing, Mellow_Velo, Minessa, Search, Shalgo, Squire, ThePirate81 2


It'll be some time before I can post the (rather pointless at this stage) Yellow Jersey points.

Re: 2017 Tour de France CQ game

First stage and my most expensive pick is out (Izaguirre). This year has not been going well for me in these games.

Regarding the changes for next year. I think we should reduce the riders to 8 and keep the budget.
The teams will probably have their average price increased, because the 9th man cut is likely to be filler/support/breakaway fodder.

If we reduce the price, making the teams will be much harder and not in the sense that it rewards skill.

As always much appreciation to Armchair cyclist for organizing the games.

Stage 1 update 2
Yellow Points

This is what the game is really about: this includes the guaranteed points above, but also points according to the riders' current standing in the GC, the points competition and (but not yet) the KoM ranking. As riders, like investments, can fall in these rankings, so daily updates can have negative scores.

What the scores are at this stage is essentially double daily rankings (because the points ranking is obviously the same as the daily ranking today), plus the GC rankings, from 600 for Thomas to 21 for Erviti in 50th, and 20 points for every rider below that.

1 CaptCavman 999
2 GPBlanco 874
3 Josedin 803
4 AG 669
5 Armchair_Cyclist 522
6 BicycleBoy 440
7 Bikeracer33 420
8 Minessa 367
9 Shalgo 352
10 GeraintTooFast 346
10 JustSomeGuy 346
10 Kabete 346
13 Fauniera 344
13 Hayabusa 344
13 Hugo87 344

33 AmisVelo 180
33 DJW 180
33 Laarsland 180
33 RattaKuningas 180
33 Yellow_Knight 180
Collective_Wisdom 345

I did, as I proposed above, make a compromise for the Collective Wisdom team. The top 9 in popularity would be way over budget, but swapping out Porte and putting in one of the next riders down left the team way below budget. So I have half of Porte's cost (and points earned), and half those of Dani Navarro, The total cost of the team thus made is slightly over budget (4031 pts), but it gives a point of comparison. (Such chimeric selections as Portvarro will not be available to managers in future editions of the game)
