Play the CQ Manager Game 2020!

Hey cyclingnews friends,

the 10th edition of the CQ Manager Game is starting in just under a week, so this post is to serve as a reminder for returning players or a heads-up for those who may not have heard of it before. I'm aware of the likelihood that many forum users don't regularly visit the Games and Fantasy Cycling section, so this post is also intended to call attention to the game and that forum in general.

The premise of the game is simple - you act as a team manager, picking between 25 and 33 riders for the year, spending no more than 7500 CQ points (as detailed by cqranking.com). Cyclingnews forums poster Hugo Koblet invented the game, and since 2011 it has become, as far as I know, the biggest online cycling fantasy game on english-language forums - last year there were 114 teams, and it would be great to keep that up.

Anyway, details are to be found on this thread. I recognize this is being posted in the road forum, and don't intend for this to be a discussion thread here - I wanted to post it temporarily here for about a week (deadline for entry is 23:59 CET January 5th), since it's the offseason and folks may not be aware of its existence. If you haven't played before, you should try it out! Even if it takes a year of participation to figure out how to pick a good team, you'll have plenty of riders to follow throughout the ups and downs of the year, and you might gain an interest in races you never really knew about before.

If you have questions etc, I encourage you to ask them in the main game thread I've linked to, or by PM.

(note to mods: I've asked if it's okay to post this reminder thread here in PRR in the past, and it has been fine - let me know if anything has changed)
