I would take Holland then...

I see also a League G: You can only have one rider per country. So you have to choose if you want Valverde, Contador or Rodriguez or an other Spanisch rider. Same for every other country. Would go for a maximum of 15 riders... And you're free to pick the countries. So there can be more than 15 countries. If you let everyone bid on the riders, I think everyone will get some strong riders as the losers from one country can win other countries becuase they din't spent their money already...

OK OK, so what I'm hearing is: the exact rules we can still discuss (whether closer to B, C, G, or a mix), but I can already start setting up a new league of national teams? :disco:

Need a strong name :agent:

The only race I can recall as being ridden by national teams is the one, the only...

I would be all in for another Cycling League or two. I have another idea based on leagues I run in Baseball and Football(USA).

Prospectus Maximus Cycling

Select 30 Riders per team
X number of Teams (Depends on interest)
Uses current spreadsheet format, scoring and race calendar.
All Riders MUST be NeoPro riders as defined in our current league.
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.

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.

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...
