Here's my team. I didn't spend very much time on it and looking at it now, I'm not really very confident in it.

I had only a few certain picks:

GAVIRIA RENDON Fernando
MOSCON Gianni
DE PLUS Laurens
HAIG Jack
MARTINELLI Davide
HERKLOTZ Silvio

These are all in my main game team as well so they were very obvious picks for me. The rest of my team is:

POLITT Nils
BOHLI Tom
GUERREIRO Ruben Antonio Almeida
LAMMERTINK Steven
MAISON Jérémy
EDMONDSON Alexander
LUNKE Sindre Skjøstad
RYBALKIN Aleksey
VAN HOOYDONCK Nathan

Lammertink I was pretty confident in as he was one I considered for the main game as well. I then started looking for cheap riders to fill in. Lunke, Rybalkin and Van Hooydonck are all fine talents and very cheap. Guerreiro is a bit more expensive but he's quite a big talent and can definitely improve on last year's season. I then probably made a mistake of not including Kämna, but he's just so young so I thought he might not score that much. Instead I went for Politt and Bohli who are big talents in my opinion. Maison and Edmondson I really don't know much about. They just went in because I've heard a bit about them and needed two more riders.

Looking at my team now, I would have liked to swap Politt for Kämna and find room for Bouhanni and Ciccone. The former I totally forgot about and the latter I never considered but he seems like a very good pick.

Dangit, second place in both least popular team and unique picks. Hoping Luis Lemus finally will light it up for Sagan's team - hope he's not forced to domestique for Dan Craven.

I'm quite surprised that i am the only one with Baska. He is quick and has a good race program (Langkawi!).

I wonder who the other guy is who picked Brkic.

Simply select 18 of these (or any other rider who has a lifetime total of less than 200 CQ points) and watch them soar or fail from now to the end of 2018. No complicated budget juggling, any 18 eligible riders can make up your team.

Funny to observe I have the 'most popular' team. I did not do anything special to select my team. It is basically my elegible part of my CQ team longlist. I have one unique pick, Robin Carpenter. I hope he will have some decent GC results (top-20) in the American stage races.

Dion Smith with 18 points already! I bet I'm somewhere near the leaderboard, as there haven't been any races and no one else has scored.

Armchair has Tom Scully who also scored a few points, and a few have James Oram.
But - Karaev1 picked Makhchoun who scored 26 in Egypt. So he probably leads!
But the first update will be next week, there will be an update every 2 weeks, with the help of a few others :) (not that much will change, there aren't many races this week.)

Yeah, I was mostly being playful, I know there's slim pickings at the start of the season. It probably wouldn't make sense to do an update until after the TdU/San Luis anyway. I was just surprised to realize I already had points!

Update 1


Hi guys, just a quick update to see where we are ahead of the real start of the season. Many of us are still waiting for our first points - only 14 scored any points. Yellow Knight got 26 points at the Tour of Egypt from Mounir Makhchoun and he also scored 10 points with Brendan Canty. Roubaix and Skidmark share 2nd place in this first update thanks to Dion Smith. James Oram scored 14 points for our 5 participants in 4th place.
4 other people picked Brendan Canty and Armchair has Tom Scully: the 5 of them scored 10 points.
Arb (/Ferminal) scored 6 points with his unique pick Hayden McCormick who has now broken even - that must feel nice for Arb :)

This week's scorers (normally I'd post a top 10 but it would feel wrong to leave Arb out :p ) - this is obviously also the overall ranking:

1 Yellow Knight 36
2 Roubaix 18
2 skidmark_14 18
4 Comodoro_13 14
4 DJW_VR 14
4 togo95 14
4 postmanhat 14
4 Karaev1 14
9 Ben1376 10
9 Allobroges 10
9 Armchair Cyclist 10
9 Ruudz0r 10
9 Nicosix 10
14 Arb 6

Thanks for the update LAFlo. I had a silly rule of having no riders that were in the main game team, which excluded Haig, Pedersen and Gaviria. The latter is already costing me, especially as I ran out of knowledge after about 10 riders, and filled in the blanks with young Brits. Also didn't realise Tom Scully qualified as was been riding over here for a while. Nice to see Chris Lawless pick up a few points at the NZ classic yesterday. First Brit to get any points this year

Update 2: 2013 champ off to a great start

After a rather irrelevant first update, things really got going these last two weeks. The first WorldTour race of the season, the Tour Down Under, and several other races in Australia and New Zealand provided excellent scoring opportunities for our Oz and Kiwi riders. There was also the Tour de San Luis in Argentina, in which most popular pick Gaviria scored his first points, and last week, with Mallorcan races, saw several riders grab a handful of points here and there.

Weekly ranking
1 Comodoro_13 106
2 Roubaix 75
2 skidmark_14 75
4 DJW_VR 73
5 search_VR 61
5 Josedin_VR 61
7 Yellow Knight 60
8 shawnm4747 57
8 18-Valve 57
10 snccdcno 56
10 MADRAZO 56
All of these members had Gaviria, who scored 41 points. Our weekly winner, comodoro, the 2013 champion, also scored 17 points with relatively unpopular pick James Oram, and most interestingly, his unique picks Owain Doull and Dylan Page scored 7 and 36(!!) points. He also scored 5 points with Jack Haig but especially Page’s points were very important. Roubaix and skidmark share the 2nd podium spot this week, they both had Haig and Dion Smith (29 points) besides Gaviria. Looking further down for other interesting picks, we see Tao Geoghegan Hart scored his first 5 points for DJW and only for him, and 4 members, including search who placed 5th this week, scored 10 points from Dani Diaz: I don’t think I’m going out on a limb when I write that I think they had hoped for more.

Weekly movers
1 search_VR +8
1 Josedin_VR +8
3 shawnm4747 +5
3 18-Valve +5
5 Arb +4
6 Comodoro_13 +3
6 Allobroges +3
8 Ruudz0r +2
8 snccdcno +2
8 MADRAZO +2
As it is still early in the competition, there was a lot of movement in the rankings. The top 10 highest movers are, in fact, the only participants who moved up at all, the rest all moved down! Search and Josedin were in 15th place with 0 points in the first update, but with some good results in the last two weeks they managed to climb 8 spots, into the top 10.

Overall ranking
1 Comodoro_13 120 +3
2 Yellow Knight 96 -1
3 Roubaix 93 -1
3 skidmark_14 93 -1
5 DJW_VR 87 -1
6 Allobroges 62 +3
7 Ruudz0r 61 +2
7 search_VR 61 +8
7 Josedin_VR 61 +8
10 Arb 57 +4
10 shawnm4747 57 +5
10 18-Valve 57 +5
As expected with such a good week, comodoro also grabs the lead. Yellow Knight took a big headstart in the last update which helps him cling onto 2nd place, but Roubaix and skidmark are right on his heels.

Spreadsheet at Mediafire
The next update will be posted in two weeks, likely by one of my minions :)

Thanks again for the update LaFlo. Without Gavria, it wasn't a great one for me. But Oram has picked up a few points since, and my 300 point gamble is in play this week. Soren Andersen made the break at Qatar today and is well placed for a good GC placing. Oh, and Cuccione is already in profit too with 32 points from Sunday's Italian race:)

He probably is a very good pick and it might help that some riders from Giant are out for a few weeks. I considered him to but he was a too big risk for me being a neo pro at Giant.
