2016 results & 2017 outlook
« on: October 16, 2016, 01:23:06 PM »
Time to celebrate the winners :win: and look ahead :taco:

Please post in the respective sing-up sheets only in case of cancelling existing participation, or introducing new participation to further diversify your ProFSL portfolio  :agent: I'll proceed to prepare the new spreadsheet tonight.



UCI WorldTour goes to :QuickStep: GTF, courtesy of Sagan's incredible WC repeat, but it couldn't get much closer than 8106 to :Euskaltel: Florry's 8013, who had to cross her fingers for Cav - or anybody else for that matter - on the final desert straight. Extremely interesting final! Sagan had to win gold, and he did :winner:

My beloved points/$ prize goes to (apart from a bunch of neo-pros) Reto Freakin' Hollenstein, whom I've never heard of before today :o
Part of :IAM:'s impressive goodbye tour, I suppose.

In 2017, no rule changes are foreseen. Please post your drop here.

The peloton size might change though. I urgently need your help recruiting. The following people must PM me if they want to keep their place:
- the mostly hopeful: Zelen Burgas (last seen online in late September)
- the mostly hopeless: joecool37 (July), FD99 (June)

First race: Jan 17
Proposed start: Nov 1 or when the predictions winner is known (could somebody please count the points?), whichever is later



Country Roads turned out to be another :Sky: that-lucky-Sagan-owner vs. the world contest... :P

First race: Jan 17
Proposed start: Dec 1?



...but I'm secretly happy to report The Rainbow Cup was a completely open affair and thus proved all your picks are extremely important. The :Garmin: Froomedogs took it.

First race: Jan 17
Proposed start: Dec 1?



As opposed to many critics claiming Quick Fixes were only going to be won by the 1st overall pick, the Cobbles went to :Garmin: FC Sagan - 9th pick! Yours truly reminded everybody it's better to be lucky than good with the Ardennes :RadioShack: GaspaShacksters - 23rd pick!!! Il Giro certainly didn't lack drama either: 19th pick would have won if only he had known better than to practice vertical snow angels, so finally the :BMC: Nibs'n'Brambs duo (4th & 21st) sealed the deal. Even le Tour wasn't won with the first pick, as :FDJ: Teklehaimanot Racing Team destroyed us all. Finally, I sneaked into another upset victory with la Vuelta's 6th pick :RadioShack: NairoShack!

First cobbled HC race: late February
Proposed start: early February



Fine Young Cannibals - we're almost 10 people.
First race: Jan 17
Proposed start: Dec 22-23? Still hoping to wake up with an inspiring format idea one of these days.



Wall Street Cycling - we're almost 10 people.
First race: Jan 17
Proposed start: Jan 10



Cycling Invitational went to :Cannondale: Cranky in the above-mentioned Sagan-Cav battle.

First race: after TdF
Proposed start: July

My proposed eight 2017 invitees: :Vlaanderen: Davy, :Garmin: Teton, :BMC: Joel (aka my amazing helpers), :QuickStep: GTF & :Euskaltel: Florry for providing that exciting photo-finish duel in the main league, :Sky: TERatcliffe26, :RadioShack: moi (minor competition winners), and :FDJ: LosBrolin if he's still on board. :Cannondale: Cranky would be the first reserve, since the Invitational is more of a lottery than actual league.

Hi, in the new taken sheet Vacansoleil misses Degenkolb who still will be in my team for 2 more seasons for 1,110. He came during the season to Vacansoleil... I also saw Ellisonde at two teams; my Vacansoleil, which is correct, and also at Vlaanderen Topsport...

I have no idea what you're talking about. You must be looking at a (very) wrong file. Either way, this thread is for celebrations. You can discuss the new spreadsheet here: http://www.profsl.com/smf/index.php?topic=277071

Welcome Daniel :toast:
As you might have noticed above, there will be a total of six separate competitions next season. If you're reading this, you're currently on the forum of the UCI WorldTour aka the Main Game, the other five are linked to above. Each of them has specific rules and its very own sign-up thread. So feel free to take a look around, and sign up to those you think you might enjoy :)
