Ambitious format, but I wouldn't take part. This needs insane knowledge. Unlike American college sports, 3 guys around here follow espoirs, plus 4 more among the other 7 billion. And even if I spent months googling those no-names, in the end it would all be about the luck of the Alaphilippes vs. the Sicards anyway.

(Just one man's opinion.)

I think you're right. Much as I read a little about Espoirs, its very rare when they are on TV and to be honest you need to see the riders to make any sort of judgement at all.

Again, calling for a good name :agent:

Unless somebody has a sexy idea, I'll call it "Cycling Cup of Nations" or something, so that both the cycling and the national teams stand out to whoever on ProFSL sees the name.

Can I make a suggestion that would improve the overall experience...more banter and threads and involvement in all the races during the season. I'm going to post a lot and hopefully others do too.

 I was thinking of a song of John Denver: Take me home country roads. And take the last two words: Country Roads...

I like the idea that we can all pick the same riders. We all take 4 from the top 15(cq-ranking), 5 from 16 to 40, 5 from 41 to 80, 5 from 81-130  and 6 from the rest. So we all have 25 riders and use the same format as in our current game. Now we can all have our favorites. Because we still need the different types of riders in our teams the teams should be quite different.

This way it dont matter howmany will join, all riders are available to everybody.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I think plenty of those games already exist. I don't usually invest my time in non-revolutionary projects :P

Modified option.

Just a different take.


Contract Cycling League

Select 30 Riders per team
X number of Teams (Depends on interest)
Uses current spreadsheet format, scoring and race calendar.
Draft or Auction? TBD

Year 1
First 5 rounds (if Draft) or selections (by each team) are automatically signed to a 3 year contract. Riders 6 through 30 (if draft) or selections are signed to a 1 year contract.

Year 2
You have 5 riders under contract from year 1.
You may re-sign up to 5 of your riders who have expiring contracts to new contracts from 1-3 years. (This allows you to keep your top riders throughout their careers.)
You fill the balance of your team with NeoPro riders signing each to a contract of 1 - 3 years as you select them in the draft or auction.

Year 3 and onward.
You have riders under contract. You may re-sign up to 5 of your riders who have expiring contracts to new contracts from 1-3 years. You fill the balance of your team with NeoPro riders signing each to a contract of 1 - 3 years as you select them in the draft or auction.

Trades allowed.

A bit similar to our current league, no?
If I understand correctly, the main difference is keeping some riders forever.
