2021-23 Emerging Riders CQ Game

Page 4 - Get up to date with the latest news, scores & standings from the Cycling News Community.
Year 1 Month 3 1 March to 4 April

The month of the northern classics, but most of these points were gained further south. One rider, who I suspect will be one of the stars of this cohort, dominates, but a top ten in a major WT stage race is pretty good for this stage of the game too.

Standings
The table is still volatile enough to have some very large movements, but perhaps the most notable is a team staying still: Greenedge was already top, and then scored the second highest total this month.

Greenedge by no means had a bad month, just not as good as Jon E's, so the latter takes the lead.

Most attention in May will be directed at the Giro,in which a few of this cohort will race, but none can be expected to score very high. But points will be gained, probably mainly in Spain and Eastern Europe.
 
Year 1, Month 5 3rd to 30th May

Two riders eligible for the game took stage wins in the Giro (Lafay and Schmid), but none of us took them.

Apart from 2 GT stage winners, we missed out this month on the sprint star (Boileau) and GC podium(Hoehn) of Rwanda, winner and second of both stages of Orlen Nations GP (M van den Berg & Heiduk), Murcia winner (Soto), and three others who scored more than 50 this month. Of course, they might not prove to be great over three years, but we probably have some riders on our teams who won't do in three years what they have done in a month.

Standings
Greenedge moves back to the top, monthly top scorer SafeBet makes the podium, and Blues in the Bottle, after remarmable leaps up and down the table in the Giro game, does something not dissimilar here.

This was the month of the Tour de France and the Olympics, but these guys found some alternative races.

Standings
The top two scorers this month were already the top two overall: is halfway through Year 1 too early to call it a two horse race? Madrazo was third this month and third now, but that was the result of an 11 place jump, which essentially shows how close it still is apart from the top two. Rote Laterne, Amis Velo and J Pettersen also move into the top ten.

Standings
Last time I wondered about this becoming a two horse race, but with SafeBet winning the month by over 100pts from anyone else, maybe it is already a one horse race. Madrazo drops almost as quickly as he rose last time, and Lukas manages a double digit leap.

I have only realised today that I didn't do an end of July update for the other two current games: sorry about that and I think I will have time to address it tomorrow.
