Hasta ahora, estos son los ciclistas que me han dado puntos, ordenados de más a menos:

MCCARTHY Jay
EDMONDSON Alexander
GUERREIRO Ruben Almeida
MÜHLBERGER Gregor
ARNDT Nikias
DLAMINI Nicholas
BAUHAUS Phil
EIKING Odd Christian
MAS NICOLAU Enric
NIZZOLO Giacomo
CAVAGNA Rémi
SCOTSON Miles
MULLEN Ryan
GROSSCHARTNER Felix
RESTREPO Jhonatan
MINALI Riccardo
SÜTTERLIN Jasha

Según mis cálculos, me han dado 958 puntos CQ. Ellos me costaron 3.968 puntos. Lo que quiere decir que he recuperado casi el 24% de lo que invertí. Como me parecen números demasiado buenos, pienso que igual no he hecho bien los cálculos. Esperaremos.

Distractly, I sent the message in Spanish. Sorry.

So far, these are the cyclists who have left me points, ordered from most to least. According to my calculations, I have been given 958 CQ points. They cost me 3,968 points. Which means that I recovered almost 24% of what I invested. As I see them, I love models. We will wait.

I have difficulties with Google translation. What I want to say at the end (I'm not talking about models) is that I have not done the calculations well and I have to wait before I get too many illusions.

Volta a la Comunitat Valenciana (2.1)
NAVARDAUSKAS Ramunas
MOSER Moreno
Probably nothing because 2012 Moser isn't lining up.

Etoile de Bessèges (2.1)
BOUDAT Thomas
COQUARD Bryan
MADOUAS Valentin
CAPIOT Amaury
FOURNIER Marc
Coquard has historically dominated the sprints at this event so I'm hoping that continues. Boudat could score a few points too and I'm curious to see what Madouas can do on the ITT.

Herald Sun Tour (2.1)
Nobody
That's where not having Chaves will hurt. He'll sleepwalk to a GC win.

This doesn't look like it's going to be a great week but with my eleven most expensive picks not racing (well Van der Poel racing just not on the road) that's to be expected.

I use the starting lineups posted here: http://firstcycling.com/
Then look through my guys to figure out who's racing. If they don't have line ups I don't know where to find them.

I also play the manager game there.

I think this week will be typical of this season for me, lots of riders scoring lots of points but nearly all of them are very popular picks so everyone else has some combination of them as well. only Benoot scored a good number of points amongst my rarer picks. I suppose that is still better than lingering around the 100 position mark all season like my previous efforts...

Update #3: Lots of Turmoil but a Repeat Winner Distances the Field

Wowee, it really feels like the season is getting started, hey? Races in Australia, races in Argentina, races in Indonesia, Dubai, getting started on European soil in Mallorca and in Marseille... remember before the CQ game when it was kinda nothing until Het Volk? Neither do I.

A busy week, with the potential for a lot of riders riding on various continents, perhaps unsurprisingly saw some big shakeups in the overall. But the week itself (and indeed, the overall) belonged to a name we've already seen in this game this year.

This Week's Top Scorers

Rank Team Points this week
1 Jon_Ezeitza 483
2 Valv.Piti 434
3 Giallo 421
4 18-Valve. (pithy) 389
5 PeterB 379

Well, if I'm starting the summary with 'unique pick Jay McCarthy' on the week that rider has won the biggest points of the week, you're probably doing pretty well. But newcomer Jon Ezeitza kills it for the second time in three weeks! This team - have you seen this team? Its highest-price rider is 395 point Jack Haig. It has 4 riders picked by over 50 teams, and is 124th out of 129 on the popularity chart. That is a great recipe to win some weeks, at the very least! Loving it. So yeah, other than McCarthy, there are 62 points from unique pick Nikias Arndt, 80 points from rare pick (3 teams) Gregor Muhlberger, 48 points from rare pick Odd Christian Eiking (8 teams) and a handful from other sources (including 30 from Nizzolo, who somehow made his way onto this unconventional squad). Second place goes to Valv.Piti, who picks up 76 points from their team's namesake, 121 from rare (5 teams) Javi Moreno, 91 from the relatively rare (16 teams) Filippo Ganna, and the requisite Coquard/Nizzolo points. Third place Giallo has the Valv/Moreno combo, as well as some decent points from Moscon and Enger. Just also want to note that two teams with names referencing Alejandro Valverde got in the top 5 because of him this week... that may be a recurring theme this year.

This Week's High Movers

Rank Team Up/down
1 18-Valve. (pithy) (+67)
2 PeterB (+60)
3 Geraint Too Fast (+59)
3 Hugo Koblet (+59)
5 fauniera (+56)

Speaking of that other Valv-referencing team... man do I love the early season. Look at those numbers! 67 spots! There were a few teams that got less than 67 points this week! Anyway, 18-Valve.(pithy) - which, sidenote, is not exactly the most pithy name - takes the top spot, another beneficiary of the Valv/Moreno train (huh, that's 3 out of the 5 Moreno teams that also have Valverde, interesting). PeterB hops a respectable 60 spots with Moreno and no Valverde, just the more common Coquard/Brambilla/Nizzolo/Enger bunch. CQ Game mainstays Geraint Too Fast and Hugo Koblet tie for third with a 'that is more than okay' 59-spot leap. In case you were wondering, GTF is the 5th and final owner of Moreno - a good week for those folks all around.

Green Jersey Competition


Rank Team Total
1 Jon_Ezeitza 90
2 ChrisDK 46
3 Poles & Co. 42
4 Nathanptz 36
5 Valv.Piti 35
5 l'velo 35

Well yeah, if you win two out of three weeks, it's gonna be you. The rest of the top 5 remains the same, except Valv.Piti jumps into a tie for 5th with the 2nd place weekly points.

Top 10 Overall


Rank Up/down Team Points
1 (+4) Jon_Ezeitza 958
2 (-1) Poles & Co. 730
3 (+7) Sneekes 727
4 (-) bminchow 725
5 (+2) sodak_za 722
6 (-3) Nathanptz 708
7 (+1) Salvarani 670
8 (+29) Giallo 649
9 (+13) search 632
10 (+7) postmanhat 624

Perhaps unsurprisingly, the team that is dominating every other aspect of this game is also dominating the overall. Jon Ezeitza has a 228 point lead with fewer than 1000 points total, which is pretty impressive percentage-wise. Sure, soon enough the Cavendishes and Coquards and Chaves' and Lopezes (wait, how would you pluralize those last two? I'm confused, that doesn't look right) of the world are gonna start scoring, and this team's time will be up. But it is a beautiful thing right now.

Last week's leader Poles & Co drops but holds a respectable second, while Sneekes captures third (fourth place bminchow is the only team in the entire 129 team field to hold position this week). Despite the jumping around, the top 7 teams were all in the top 10 last week - Giallo, search and postmanhat move in, while repre, ChrisDK, and kiszol fall out.

Next week - Valencia, Etoile de Besseges, Herald Sun Tour - oh my! Let's two-point-one it up!

Very impressive start by newbie Jon Ezeitza :)
I am anxiously waiting for some of my rarer riders to start their season. On social media I see 3 of them are training together in Tenerife (Felline, Bettiol and Formolo) :)

Very happy with the success of the team, a team without figures but with very hardworking people. Of the 33 cyclists in Team 17, they have already scored points. I expected fruit in the medium to long term, but there has been luck and we are leaders. For next week I have these:

Volta a la Comunitat Valenciana (31-4)
PLAZA Rubén
KUDUS Merhawi

Etoile de Bessèges (31-4)
MANZIN Lorrenzo

Herald Sun Tour (31-4)
EDMONDSON Alexander
GUERREIRO Ruben

I have a lot of confidence in Guerreiro -for the moment he has given 91 points- and Kudus, from whom I hope that this year he will make an important leap forward in his progression.

Who is this De Greef? I've never heard of him. Is he related to the famous Ninja candidate Francis? Will be surprised to see him get points in Jayco considering his past results.

Probably gonna regret not having Cavendish on my team but if you dont like a rider what you gonna do :rolleyes:

If Valverde keep doing what Valverde does, I am just gonna have to hope Sagan does the same for my team :D

Vakoc out during all the races where I was hoping he might get some results is very unfortunate because it looks he will miss months with that injury :(


Might have hit my peak with my placing so far, not gonna lie about it :p

Not wanna get greedy here, but with a bit more luck from Gaviria and Valverde that would have been enough to dethrone Jon for the week :D shoutout to Mayomaniac who have hyped Ganna into oblivion on our endless messenger-conversation, you are the real MVP.
