2018-20 Emerging Riders CQ Game

Page 3 - Get up to date with the latest news, scores & standings from the Cycling News Community.
Thanks for the update! It is my first time participating in one of these emerging riders games, and there is definitely a different rhythm to it than to one of the shorter (season-long, GT, or classics) games. It will be fun to watch how all of these riders develop over the next three years.
 
Year 1, month 3 5th March to 1st April

Three big scorers this month, but all three among our most popular picks.

HODEG CHAGUI Alvaro Jose 190 (won Handzame and a stage in Catalunya) 22 teams
JAKOBSEN Fabio 155 (Handzame win) 27 teams
PHILIPSEN Jasper 132 (3rd in dreidaagse, won the triptique: I'm guessing his lucky number is 3) 21 teams
DAVIDS Brendon 62 for Lukas CPH
WELTEN Bram 59 pts 10 teams
TURGIS Tanguy 54 3

13 teams have all three of those popular picks, three of us have none of them.

Standings

The Asian moves up from 6th to take the lead, and is sweating under two yellow jerseys, as he also leads the 2017-19 version. Kryvo was immediately ahead of him, now immediately behind in second, having dislodged Scrool, who hangs onto his podium place ahead of Skidmark, who makes an impressive jump from 12th. Also bursting into the top ten are Flo, on the back of a 7 place rise, and Ludwigzgz, whose 10 place rise is matched only by monthly winner Karaev.

No points for my unique pick Nans Peters at the Tour de Suisse today, but at least he looked strong before being caught near the finish--hopefully a sign of things to come. (He also put in a good ride at the Tour de 'Ain last month.)
 
Last Monday passed me by without my noticing it was the first Monday (normal update schedule), and this week looks rather busy for me. Working on these three games during the build up to, and in the duration of, the TdF game is likely to be impossible if I am to maintain a marriage. So with your forbearance (or, frankly, without it), I'll do an early-May to mid-June 'month' next week, and another 6 week 'month' ending on the first Monday of August. Hopefully we will be back on schedule thereafter (though I won't promise that any update due mid Vuelta won't also be postponed).

This applies equally to the 2016-18 and 2017-19 editions. If you feel I have seriously undermined your enjoyment of the games, I will reimburse 25% of your entry fee if you send me the receipt.

Enjoy the additional tension waiting to see how you have done.

Little stability in the table so far: leader Skidmark was 4th at the beginning of May, and Squire leaps from 16th to 3rd. That is the biggest jump, but Fauniera's 5 place move within the top ten is notable, and Cordi is also a new face, just, in the top ten.

Standings

The only member of the previous top ten to move upwards is Kryvo, but the two teams above him in this period, Hugo K and Scrool, move up by 5 and 4 places respectively, Hugo appearing in the top ten. Will the riders who have not yet lived up to expectation come through in the remaining two seasons, or is the basic shape of the table already established?

Full analysis of rider scores etc to follow on some cold wet December evening. Here are the numbers thus far.
 
Year 1 End of year

Those two managers who sought early season glory through Gonzalo Najar get their 142 points of comeupance, with popular picks Narvaez and Ganna getting 1 and 14 points respectively in the reallocation of honours in the Vuelta a San Juan. Castrillo (6 teams) and Carretero (20 gain points from the disqualification of Igor Merino from his 8th place in the Spanish national ITT. Blues in the Bottle has all 4 of those riders who will now feel they have a more just points haul.

So the slightly revised end of year standings, 1/3 of the way through in terms of time, although rather less than that for points, are:

TOTAL

The Collective Ignorance Team (those we all missed out on, headed by Janssens, Aranburu, Nenz and Mader) would have 4946 points, and a healthy lead. The actual leader, Karaev, has 67.4% of the 6950 possible.

Appart from Najar, with his retracted points, 3 selected riders remain pointless (DAL-CIN Matteo, GAZZOLI Michele and PEÑA MOLANO Wilson Estiben), and among those picked ten or more times without really justifying the hype (yet: they still have 2 years to prove their worth) are ALBANESE Vincenzo, VANHOUCKE Harm, OWEN Logan and RIVERA SERRANO Kevin. At least Albanese has now reached the 200 career total, so his repeated popularity while underacheiving will not be repeated.

Hope this whets your appetite for the new edition, so long as you think you can hold concentration until the end of 2021: official launch should be before the end of the day/year.

Really excited about this game.... It is a shame that I missed the 2017-19 edition but I hope I will remain first on this one till the end! Already started to look for riders for the 2019-21 game!

Keep up the good work Armchair cyclist!

Chris Hamilton in 2018 did not finish in the top-18 of the best team of the year. But this year 2019 he started it on a motorcycle of 500 c.c .; until now he has scored 131 points. And it will go up many positions ... and I with him :D
 
Year 2, Month 1
So, riders, are you ready to step up?

24 selected riders have broken their ducks for this year, the best among them being:
HAMILTON Chris 131 points (6th in TDU, 16th in CEGORR) 8 teams
SCHULTZ Nicholas 116 (2nd overall, and a stage win, in Herald Sun race, and nationals 19th) 5 teams
FOUCHE James 70 (NZ national champion, and 5th in TT) for Leadbelly
PHILIPSEN Jasper 65 (TDU stage win) 21 teams
POGACAR Tadej 54 (13th in TDU) 16
EYOB Metkel 45 1

This month:
1 LukasCPH 306 (Hamilton, Schultz and Pogacar)

Overall
Karaev more than doubles his lead, and Kryvo overtakes Comodoro to take a podium spot: further down the top ten, Fauniera regains one of the positions he lost when Najar's points were removed, and Skidmark gets a top ten spot through the biggest rise this month:5 places.

Don't be surprised if the March update is slightly delayed: it will be the weekend of the first races in the Spring Classics game, so I might be a bit busy with that (watch our for news of it soon), but it should appear during that first week of March.

Here is the spreadsheet, but some columns are redundant or unupdated, because the first month each year requires slightly different calculation.

Pogacar looks like he is going to be a key selection in this edition, after arguably the best performance in the peloton, emerging or otherwise, this month.

Standings
8 of the top ten at the end of January were in the top ten for February, so this was more a confirmation than a shake up. The cream may have already risen. There is some significant change though, with Comodoro making the podium, Hugo Koblet (+3) and Squire (+2) moving up within the top ten, and Laarsland (+3) joining that elite. Although they were 16th and 20th respectively this month, a congested lower-middle table gives Los Brolin and Monsieur Hulot the honour of biggest riser (+4).

Squire moves from 8th to 3rd, the jump of the month, and the idea that there can be a 200 point-odd margin over anyone else in a month shows that the title is still fairly open. AlyKaptan nudges into the top ten
