Play the CQ Ranking Manager Game!

Not open for further replies.
Hi all,

many of you have played the CQ Manager Game before, so this post is partially to serve as a reminder to those of you who are interested in playing again, but don't necessarily visit the games forum often. This post is also intended to call attention to the game itself and the games forum in general, for forum users that haven't visited it before.

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 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 (correct me if I'm wrong) - last year there were 150 teams, and it would be great to get even more.

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 asked a mod's permission to post it temporarily here for 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 to figure out how to pick a good team, you'll have plenty of riders to follow throughout the year.

If you have questions etc, I encourage you to ask them in the main game thread I've linked to, or by PM.
Now also up in the fantasy section of the forum is my Youth version of the CQ Ranking game.

you have a budget of a 1000 points for 12-15 riders - riders have to be first year pros at WT or ProConti level (of any age) or be from 1990 or younger rider at Continental/u23 level - more explanation of the rules in the thread.

Has been a really fun game in the first couple of years - last year the margin of victory was only 2 points!

Well, it seems I missed this deadline. On our site FirstCycling though, the season kicks off with the Tour de San Luis. Deadline for that manager game is pre race start January 19th.
