I'm always interested in other's teams; thinking about it it's just the predictions which i think need improving.

Best GT team, Best Cobbled Classics, Best Hilly Classics, Last place (now we're all active) would all be good. Could also pick top 3 overall (4 points for 1st, 2 for 2nd/3rd, 2 extra for getting all 3).

Best per $ should be 40-200 and 210+

I'd get rid of best overall rider (overlap with WT), most improved (lack of diversity in picks) and maybe best Neo (too much luck).

Yep, imo predictions should generate some communication within the game, about the game.

Another way to generate this would be every player to do a small analysis of other team. It could have open or closed (a secret friend type of thing) authorship, and result from a random draw.

That actually sounds quite cool! Predict their best rider, biggest scoring surprise, and biggest disappointment, maybe add a little story too? This could then even be quantified somehow to be included in the global predictions.

My prediction is that no one is going to run away with it this year. Just had a look through all the teams and there isn't a standout favourite. There could be many twists and turns.

Yeah, sorry, been travelling. Thanks for all your ideas. Here are my proposals. Those I consider vital are in bold, others could make it or not, feel free to leave more feedback. The official PM will then follow next week. Reminder: this is supposed to be engaging, fun, and a bit wacky/random too. All arguments about a draft pick being at stake will be ignored :P


Fantasy UCI WorldTour

winning team
team that made the highest jump in total points scored?
Best GT team, Best Cobbled Classics, Best Hilly Classics?
winning rider
best rider points/€ in scrubs (40-200k salary)
best rider points/€ in duds (210k+ salary)
rider with highest total score increase 2016 vs. 2015 (only those under contract in 2015)
drafted neo-pro with highest total score


IRL

Milano-SanRemo
Tour of Flanders & Paris-Roubaix, separately or combined (lowest sum of placings among riders who finish both?)
Liege Bastogne Liege, or alternatively the entire Ardennes Triptyque (lowest sum of 2 best placings among riders who finish at least 2?)
Lombardia
Giro
Tour
Vuelta
(possibly excluding the big 4/5/X, since it's a lottery to know which one of them will participate?)
OGRR
WCRR
OGTT and WCITT
, separately or combined (lowest sum of placings among riders who finish both?)
WorldTour (I agree it's probably too similar to our game winner)
Champs-Élysées winner or Green Jersey winner or most Tour stages or most GT stages




For comparison, here's the 2015 format:

I don't think it would be too far wrong to just add the olympics to last seasons selections.

Quite like the idea of green jersey selection.

Like the idea the idea of best GT team
how about team that has the most stage wins?

Why not have us make our vuelta prediction later in the season? when a better startlist idea is known?
