I think the overall will be a better race this year, although i'll go against the grain and say that Belkin won't make top 3.

Top vote getters (discarding teams that voted for themselves although Dan has every right being defending champ, i just couldn't pick a clear winner so decided to be optimistic):

Belkin 3
Radioshack
AG2R
Europcar

Could anybody help count up our scores?


winning team: :Lotto:, :RadioShack:, :Movistar:
total score of winning team: 9708
winning rider: Contador, Valverde, Nibali
total score of winning rider: 2433
best rider points/ in scrubs (30-200k salary): Aru, Wellens, A. Yates
best rider points/ in duds (210k+ salary): Kristoff, Peraud, Quintana
highest total score increase 2014 vs. 2013 (only those under contract in 2013): Contador (1097=>2433), Gerrans (495=>1593), then a zillion people around 700 points or so (e.g. Dumoulin, Kristoff, Peraud), I'd propose not scoring the third place here
highest total score of drafted neo-pro: A. Yates, Valgren Andersen, Formolo

Milano-SanRemo: Kristoff, Cancellara, Swift
Tour of Flanders: Cancellara, Van Avermaet, Vanmarcke
Paris-Roubaix: Terpstra, Degenkolb, Cancellara
Liege Bastogne Liege: Gerrans, Valverde, Kwiato
Lombardia: D. Martin, Valverde, Costa
Giro: Quintana, Uran, Aru
Tour: Nibali, Peraud, Pinot
Vuelta: Contador, Froome, Valverde
WCRR: :taco: KWIATO :bacon:, Gerrans, Valverde
WCITT: Wiggo, T. Martin, Dumoulin
WorldTour: Valverde, Contador, Gerrans

(The most humiliating part is that I'm not even sure why I watch them all - mere months later had zero recollection of most those results outside of Grand Tour winners, the recent GdL, and of course that one downhill I spent shouting at the TV while jumping on the sofa.)

I may be able to add up on friday evening if noone else can or wants to do it before.

3/2/1 points for 1st/2nd/3rd picks again?

and the teams with the 3 closest guesses get points for the total score and winning rider score?

Indeed, but we used 4-2-1 points to award the real psychics. Thanks in advance!
