2018-20 Emerging Riders CQ Game

31 Dec 2017 22:17

Cast your mind back to January 2015. How many of the following might you have expected to accumulate 900 CQ points or more between then and now? If you had managed all of them, you would have had the perfect score for the 2015-17 game. That is the challenge of the Emerging riders Game: what riders who currently have a lifetime total of fewer than 200 CQ points will score best by the end of 2020?

ROGLIC Primoz
GAVIRIA RENDON Fernando
NAESEN Oliver
LOPEZ MORENO Miguel Angel
MOSCON Gianni
LATOUR Pierre
MARECZKO Jakub
CALMEJANE Lilian
KÜNG Stefan
TORRES AGUDELO Rodolfo Andres
BUCHMANN Emanuel
CLAEYS Dimitri
BETTIOL Alberto
MCLAY Daniel
OOMEN Sam
ANDERSEN Søren Kragh
CAMPENAERTS Victor
BERNAL GOMEZ Egan Arley

Your Team 18 riders, no budget restriction except that which applies to each rider.

Rider Eligibility Any rider who has a maximum of 199 CQ points through their career, so long as that title is not kept low because of results removed under doping sanctions. Here is a list of some who have appeared on CQ in recent years and are eligible, but it is not exclusive or exhaustive. When the Main Game and Youth Game teams are announced, I'll try to make a list of riders named therein that are eligible: that might be more manageable than this huge list.


Submitting your team PM to me, by the end of January (I operate on GMT/UTC), with just the rider names in CQ format.

My team has been sent to Rote Laterne, but I reserve the right to adjust it in the case of a rider emerging Gaviria-like before the deadline.

Scoring CQ points over the next three years, the end of 2020 update being the end. I might need to be alerted to points from one year that are deleted the next. I'll give updates monthly (at least that is the intention)

Entries Teams up to up to the original deadline: about ten hours from the datestamp on this post, but your team can't be checked (Bit of an extension, see latest post).

I was having real trouble putting together a team for this game, so I have collated information from CQranking into a new database to make it a bit easier.

The database includes all riders that have scored at least one point between 2012 and 2017 (on the assumption that emerging riders wont have been active before then), and also all riders who have a team for 2018 (as of CQranking on 1/1/2018) but who have never scored a point.

The database can be filtered by age, team, level and 2012-2017 point total - and it makes it a lot easier to identify eligible riders and to focus on those that look the most promising.

I thought it might be useful for others - it can be downloaded here

Warning - I have mainly automated the creation of this so the data should largely be correct, but there may of course be the odd error.

Great job: you just need to be careful of riders for whom CQ have recorded different names. Pierre Latour, for example, has some years recorded as Pierre Roger Latour, and some as Pierre-Roger Latour. But that aside, so long as you are confident that the rider you want won't have scored pre-2012, just make sure that column B is less than 200.

May I copy the link to Velorooms, where the game runs in parallel?

Great to see that this game is a yearly tradition. Even though I have never challenged for any high places it really is a fun game and also helps follow young and promising riders. So I will definately participate again! Also thanks a lot to monsieur_hulot for the very helpful Excel file :razz:

Woah, this is really hard this year. I have 10 riders I'm certain that I'm gonna include in my team, but then I've got like 40 other riders whom I really can't decide the remaining 8 amongst.

After the good start I've had in the 2018 CQ GAME THREAD, I can not resist the temptation to also participate in this other game. It is very exciting and interesting.

I have already developed my base team. From now on, I will have to pay attention to the cyclists who walk well during the next two weeks. In total, my cyclists accumulated 2634 points in the year 2017.

Still plenty of time for entries, but for those who consider the several thousand rider strong lists of eligible riders a bit intimidating, here is a list of those selected for either the Youth or zero pointer game that are eligible for this one. There might, of course, be great picks for this game who were either ineligible or overlooked for those games. If you are in a hurry, just harvest 18 names from this list: someone has thought they have some promise.

Yeah, in the first set of rules I happened to type 'less than 200' when I was actually thinking '200 or less', but quod scripsi, scripsi (as Pilate probably didn't say), and it has been under 200 ever since.

But as I said at the time, there has to be a non-negotiable line in the sand somewhere.

I want to participate in the game called "2018-20 Emerging Riders CQ Game", but I can not because I have sent few messages to the forum. I do not know if with this requirement I will be able to participate more!

Finally I was able to participate by sending my team through "Velorooms," a web site friend of Cyclingnews. I have also been able to subsequently renew my team through a friend who has participated in the forum for a long time. Let's see if I can finally access this forum without needing intermediaries. It is always interesting to participate in the forum, especially to be able to contrast different opinions.

Looking forward to the revelation of the teams. Curious to see how many late entry teams have a particular rider.

I think I know which rider you mean, I picked him, and I'll have you know I sent in my team 2 weeks ago ;)
I'm actually a little miffed because I think he wouldn't have been too popular otherwise!

He was already on about half the teams, and of the handful of teams that have come in in the last few days, he hasn't been ubiquitous.

If anyone feels they have missed out on a revelation by virtue of sending in their squad early, you can change it up until the deadline on Wednesday night.

So far I have received 19 teams (listed in the opening post), including 5 who were not in the previous edition. Between them they have chosen 94 different riders in whom to invest their hopes, 42 of whom are unique picks, and 8 are on more than half the teams.

The current Collective Wisdom selection would have a popularity score of 172, while the popularity range for the entered teams ranges from 158 to 48.

You have until the last instant of January (UK time/UTC): that is a tad under 3 days 12 hours by the timestamp of this post lest there be any time-zone confusion.

The guy you are talking about... I had him last year in my team. But for this year i thought he's too focused on track and I put him out of the team. Now I have to reconsider my decision :D
