Yes - great idea.

Winner gets a vacuum cleaner?

But seriously, I suspect not many of us are completely au fait with the women's scene. I know a very small amount but certainly not much. It would also show our support for women's cycling, and, at the same time would not detract in any way from the main game we are playing.

Clearly we'd all need to do a bit of homework over the next couple of weeks, but if we said we'd start next weekend...

CQRanking Cycling Fever and PCS would be good starting points, 2016 could be a season of learning and it would be something we could continue/expand next year and beyond.

The more I think about it, the more keen I am.

Ladies?

Teams of 10, budget 2,500. Same rules as the men.

 There are only 2 or 3 ladies who score very much points.

I could work, but I know form another league where we have a ladies section, that most of the ladies only score a few points.

But if we try it I'm in...

Alright, seems we're converging to something quite cool:
  • Name: :WCRJ: The Rainbow Cup
  • National teams! (different from current league, yay)
  • Snake draft! (different from current league, yay)
  • Strictly single year deals! (different from current league, yay)
  • Same scoring and calendar! (no added maintenance, yay)
  • Cost of each rider is his higher CQ score of 2014 or 2015.
  • Total peloton size... say around 100 riders? (With total budget = 70000-80000 maybe? Top 100 scored 91652 in 2015.)
Please vote/argue below:
  • Add an extra constraint of balanced teams, with pre-set pools of X GT contenders, X sprinters, X time trialists, X geezers etc.?
(Gimme your thoughts. Don't expect democracy though.)


PS
My nerdy brain briefly salivated over that prime idea, but in the end 1-year contracts make it both easy and different from what we already have.


Ladies?

Sorry, I think I know more about women's footy...
I mean, go wild, but don't count on me.

How does a snake draft work with National teams?

I suppose we could have:

2 round draft to select nations.

Option to select Spain 2 etc.

Then pick 5 riders from each of your nations (Spain 2 would have to wait for Spain 1 to pick 5).

Total budget of 5,000 per team.

I think it's simpler (and better) to have a 10 round snake draft with a budget of 6,000 and you can only pick one rider from each country.

Country Roads was also a better name  :P

If we're drafting, the nations become mere labels indeed. Just corrected my question above.

Everything sounds interesting. (The woman league would be the only one where I would pass).

But my vote would go to a easy league. 30 round snake draft, only 1 year contracts. So we just have to rate the riders for their 1 year value. Everyone has the same chance.

In year two the snake draft will start in reverse order of the 2016 final standings. So the worst team has the first pick in the 2017 draft. And so on.


Itīs easy and simple, but a lot of fun.



Not really sure how we will do it with nationals, but that could end pretty unbalanced at the end unless we find a good solution here.

I'm in favour of a shorter draft (10 rounds).

Don't like specifying by rider type (or anything else that's subjective and/or requires work).

Having a budget adds some strategy.

One rider per country and/or real life trade team (or something similar) brings a twist.

  • Mets Donations Accepted: Flash, I’m not even discussing the trade, that’s besides the point. I have this issue with almost every league on here when someone feels the need to tell someone else how to run their team. Whether they’re right or wrong in the end it’s their team. If it’s not blatant collusion then it’s not affecting league integrity
