Thanks Armchair cyclist! I really appreciate the effort you put into these games.

Looking forward to the year totals. I think I topped that ranking last year, if I'm not mistaken (my only CQ game 'win' ever). Don't think I'll be close to that this year, but I'm happy that my team of bang average GC contenders/pretenders got me a top ten in the Vuelta.

Thanks for the comments. I'm happy with my top ten here, partly because I was dead last after stage 13, partly because it was achieved despite wasted points on Porte, and partly for reasons that will become clear when I put up a few more numbers from the spreadsheet tonight.

Yep, Hakkie found a better team than my thoughts as to what was best before I even posted it.


This ritual humiliation four times a year is my reward for the games :razz:

The Four Seasons Championship

The pizza for the top cumulative score in the 3 GTs and the Spring Classics
Spring Classics + Giro + Tour + Vuelta =
1 Armchair_Cyclist , 2277 + 1004 + 1731 + 1140 = 6152
2 Rote_Laterne , 1966 + 1885 + 771 + 751 = 5373
3 Hakkie2 , 2307 + 1081 + 800 + 1012 = 5200
4 LosBrolin , 2023 + 1168 + 1168 + 735 = 5094
5 Nathanptz , 2274 + 1132 + 812 + 837 = 5055
6 AmisVelo , 2017 + 1154 + 504 + 1303 = 4978
7 GPBlanco , 1809 + 882 + 1010 + 1210 = 4911
8 SemirS , 1028 + 908 + 1572 + 1305 = 4813
9 Squire , 1507 + 1005 + 1061 + 1021 = 4594
10 Laarsland , 1993 + 1007 + 1027 + 462 = 4489
11 Leadbelly , 1695 + 725 + 1062 + 846 = 4328
12 BluesInTheBottle , 1901 + 794 + 602 + 952 = 4249
13 Mellow_Velo , 1673 + 1066 + 699 + 790 = 4228
14 Shalgo , 1695 + 695 + 983 + 775 = 4148
15 Vladimir , 1462 + 1152 + 966 + 443 = 4023
16 Salvarani , 1087 + 637 + 922 + 1137 = 3783
17 Search , 1211 + 679 + 1025 + 827 = 3742
18 Del1962 , 1349 + 954 + 708 + 569 = 3580

Collective_Wisdom , 2119 + 934 + 1000 + 775 = 4828

In the early stages of the Vuelta, Los Brolin, Nathanptz and Rote Laterne all headed this table at some point, and I had thought that having Porte in my team would scupper my hopes. But as Mas moved up the rankings, and Pinot started winning stages and getting higher on GC, I ended up stretching the lead I had before this fourth leg.

Thanks especially to this bunch who have been loyal entrants in all the games this year.

I notice that Bicycle Boy picked the Vuelta winner last year too, one of only teams to do so, but ended up 5th, largely because everyone above him had Lopez. This time he had the race winner and Lopez.

Only entrant other than the overall winner to score 1000+ in every game. I'll take that :D
