At least we are all off the mark (and the spreadsheet works)

There will always be those who we all managed to miss. You might have riders in your team who by the end of three years have still scored less than the likes of:
PHOUNSAVATH DESTRIBOIS Alex Ariya 113 from Tour of Indonesia
HARPER Chris 101 from Aussie nationals and Herald Sun
KIPKEMBOI Salim 101 from Sharjah and Tropicale Amissa Bongo
CHAWCHIANGKUANG Peerapol 100 also Tour of Indonesia

And the spreadsheet is here, and its updates will be here each month though I might not always publish the link.

Thanks for the update! This game is so great to follow over the longer term.

I almost picked Chris Harper. I'd heard good things and then imagined a trajectory from a year of domestic and Asian racing to a PCT team or something the next two years for a comfy gain. At the last minute I decided to go with another Aussie Chris (Hamilton, that is) because he'd had a couple of seasons under his belt and was locked in with a team, so more of a sure bet. Steadiness has served me well in this game, but those are probably the kind of picks I'll need to make to get 1st instead of top 10 - not Harper in specific, but the road less travelled.

Good luck everyone!
