Waterloo Sunrise said:
Yeah, at 950 he was obvious value.

I also picked Nibali & Gilbert - they're just great.

Yes, he was. Riccardo Ricco on the other hand was fishy as hell and almost as expensive :)

Trust me, he'll get those points back quite easily :)

He's already up 200+ points compared to last year. And if he places tenth or something at MSR he'll earn some extra points as well.

Gilbert and Nibali are a different story.

Bauke Mollema - 524

Next closest to payback:
Andrew Talansky: -15

Number of riders yet to score: 10 out of 30

Yeah so 451.

Surely thats top 10 for the week :D

Well, you passed me at least. I scored 313 this week. I'm still happy to get consistent points each week so far. Next week looks a little worse for me however. Not many riders will be in action and be likely to score points. I'll next have to hope for P-N and T-A.

Credit where its due, only Jancouver has Brut, and he is someone who cost little this year but got lots of points the years before.

And he got 80% of his score back already today.

Thanks! I guess it was my lucky pick. 145 points already. Paid 91:D

That being said, I would say that half of my team are guys I really like and half where picked for the value. I'm not giving myself any big chances in this game because of that but I just couldnt resist to have guys like Cancellara on my team. If I was in this to win this game I would get 7 "cheap" guys for the price of Spartacus but this is my team and if I'm the manager, he is on my team. I wanted some real champs on my team and I'm hoping I will enjoy results from those guys even though they may not even get me even :D

At least I didnt get Ricco so I do look at it as I got 750 points discount on Cancellara :D

Lousy week?

Try having a lousy year.

Indeed. I only got 45 points for today's race. 40 for Greipel and 5 for Ciolek. I'm already thinking I'll be lucky to get to 7000. It might be a bit too early, but I think I'm already going to start eyeing riders for next years competition.
Jancouver said:
451 points?! Thats must the biggest gain of the week. (update tomorrow?). You should move to the upper half with this gain and way ahead of me :D Congrats!

Well, Sagan alone scored 244 points or something like that this week so someone that has him could potentially have earned even more if they had more other good scorers.
Update 7:

The season is really beginning to take off as more than 3000 points were handed out just this weekend and even more during the week.

microdose continues to hang on as the leader but the competition is getting fierce as four new teams enters the top 10: Waterloo Sunrise, AAC1983, trotters aotearoa and Jakob747. Things are going the wrong way for Spider1964, Sneekes, Joy118118 and Moondance as they wave goodbye to their places in the top 10.

The eternal debater, The Hitch, finally makes some noise as he's this weeks high jumper moving from 57th to 34rd place. Barrus's team goes in the opposite direction as he moves from 32nd to 48th place.

Top 10:

Position (last update) Team name - points

1. (1) microdose - 2292
2. (2) Kevin Rudd's Hairdryer - 2158
3. (3) Pcutter - 2033

5. (15) Jakob747 - 1802

Clung onto 10th by 1 point, sure I was going to lose places. Going to be slipping down soon though given the amount of riders I have who I now doubt I will score well. No one give up there is a long, long way to go.

I've got Trent (dodgy Matt White sent me to a Spanish doctor so now I want money) Lowe on my team so I doubt that I'll get all 30 riders score....

Good on Sky, those Aussie riders making the Brits team look good have kept me in front for one more update.

It would be interesting to have a "Previous ranking" column, but I don't know if that could be done automatically.

So far, my only clearly right buy is Cobo.

Add another sheet labeled "prior week".

When loading a new file, put the one in the 2011 sheet in the "prior week" sheet prior to loading the new one in.

Replicate the formulas referencing the 2011 sheet in a new columnt referencing the "prior week" sheet.

Reference that total from each team when populating the "previous ranking" column on the overall ranking sheet.
