Year 2 Month 10 2nd to 22nd October, and thus to the end of the season (although I'll wait to see if anything happens outside Europe and with adjustment of results before I do the end of year data)

Mainly less common picks gaining the points at the tail end of the season (and De Lie, of course)

The gaps are not that large, but the positions are being doggedly retained.

But who are the riders who are going to have their breakthrough in the third year?
 
Year 2, Months 11 and 12

Juan Diego Alba Bolivar had had a couple of uninspiring years as a young rider at Movistar, and was looking to get a kick start at Androni Giocattoli when we were putting our teams together. That was enough hope for @Riverside to grant him a place in his team for this game, and two years on, Alba has just won the Vuelta a Costa Rica for the Ecuadorian lower level Movistar team, gaining 35 points and making himself, and Riverside, the only scorers in the game in this not-entirely-off-season time frame.

Number crunching to follow in the next few days, real life allowing.

Only 2 unpicked riders, and one of them just squeaking in. 13 532 for the year had anyone picked them all

But no-one did, so these are the best scores for year 2 alone

8 of these were not in the top 18 for Year 1.

De Lie has 3154 and still has a year to go. Since the game started, only Bernal, Pogacar and Evenepoel had more than that after 3 years. Cavendish, Quintana, Cungo, Sagan and Valverde can be added to that list if we go back to the beginning of CQ points. He needs 956 in 2024 to overtake Pogacar as the best scorer during the game, 1333 to overhaul Sagan for second including the pre-game scorers, and 1449 to be the most dramatically emerging rider (by the definition of this game) since CQ started (essentially, since 2000)

That best possible team to the end of year 2 has a total of 20740, more than 3000 ahead of any other year the game has been going: this seems to be an exceptional cohort. And Ray has 69.3% of that, which has only been bettered once.

Not all scores are high though: there were 3 riders that we saw selected who haven't scored since, and two of the Collective Wisdom team are eligible for the cycle that is about to start.

Top riders on top 5 teams:
Ray1014366
De Lie, Ayuso, Zingle, Sheffield, Waerenskjold, Gregoire, Uijtdebroeks, Plapp
SafeBet13806
De Lie, Ayuso, Zingle, Van Gils, Uijtdebroeks, Plapp

LosBrolin13361
De Lie, Ayuso, Sheffield, Gregoire, Uijtdebroeks, Plapp
Squire13354
De Lie, Ayuso, Zingle, Waerenskjold, Uijtdebroeks, Plapp


Outscoring the collective scores of Sheffield, Waerensjold and Gregoire by 560 might be a big ask of Van Gils, but the riders lower down each team's total might yet have a part to play.


Here is the spreadsheet: let's see how its data change over the remaining year.

Year 3 Month 1 to 4th Feb

This ought to be the year in which our picks, if they are not doing so already, should be establishing the real level at which they can compete. Whether that is the level we hoped it would be in early 2022 is another matter.

However, they have been outscored by (presumably younger) equivalents in the for update for the year. Hopefully that means that they are building their calendars around more auspicious races.

All the riders on Evans' team seem to have been at the same, particularly good, New Year's Eve party.

Standings

January scores are probably not typical, but SafeBet took back 332 points this month, leaving the gap at 228, and suggesting that we still have a race on our hands, despite Ray's stranglehold thus far.

Rather differing permutations of riders in the teams at the top this time around, but a good boost for those that went early on Lenny Martinez.
Evans' was the lowest scoring team last time, the highest this time: youth are fickle.

Outscoring the collective scores of Sheffield, Waerensjold and Gregoire by 560 might be a big ask of Van Gils, but the riders lower down each team's total might yet have a part to play.
Well 534 points of the gap between the top two have been wiped out already since then, and Ray and SafeBet now find themselves nearly 700 points clear of the rest

They have 6 riders in common (5 of whom are fairly necessary to be high in the table: De Lie, Ayuso, Zingle, Plapp, Uijtdebroecks, and the sixth of whom, Romo, has been a popular disappointment), so the guys who make a difference are:
Ray10Safebet
SHEFFIELD MagnusVAN GILS Maxim
GREGOIRE RomainPITHIE Laurence
WAERENSKJOLD SørenVERNON Ethan
FERRON ValentinMILAN Jonathan
TURNER BenPICCOLO Andrea

HAGENES Per StrandBARONCINI Filippo
STAUNE-MITTET JohannesLIPOWITZ Florian
HELLEMOSE AsbjørnBRENNER Marco
LÜHRS Luis-JoeOSORIO CARVAJAL Alejandro
PIDCOCK JosephUMBA LOPEZ Abner Santiago

Who will be the big 2024 scorers among these to determine the result (or am I underestimating the teams that are behind)?

Rather differing permutations of riders in the teams at the top this time around, but a good boost for those that went early on Lenny Martinez.
Evans' was the lowest scoring team last time, the highest this time: youth are fickle.

Standings
Having appeared almost unassailable for so long, Ray can now no longer even hang on to second as Laarsland leapfrogs both him and Los Brolin. SafeBet meanwhile continues his amazing year 3 pace, and looks well on his way to a two in a row. Pleanty of competition for the places below him though, as shown by the rather volatile placings in the lower top ten.

Standings
Ray is back up to second, but unless Romain Gregoire jumps from his current 42nd to top ten in the Tour, closing the gap looks unlikely.
