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:

best rider points/€ in scrubs (30-200k salary):

I'd prefer to have the monuments separately like last year.

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?

A bit impossible to count manually...

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

Or maybe allow people to make their prediction conditional? ("Contador if he participates, otherwise Purito")

winning team
team that made the highest jump in total points scored? Sure
Best GT team, Best Cobbled Classics, Best Hilly Classics? Yes, yes and yes
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 Not bothered either way


IRL

Milano-SanRemo Yes
Tour of Flanders & Paris-Roubaix Separate
Liege Bastogne Liege, or alternatively the entire Ardennes Triptyque (lowest sum of 2 best placings among riders who finish at least 2?) Just LBL if we have best hilly classic team
Lombardia Yes
Giro
Tour
Vuelta
(possibly excluding the big 4/5/X, since it's a lottery to know which one of them will participate?) Everyone gets to pick 2 riders who haven't podiumed a GT before, take highest finish
OGRR
WCRR
OGTT and WCITT
, separately or combined (lowest sum of placings among riders who finish both?) 3 man TT teams, 10-6-4-3-2-1 for each race, our top 3 then score the usual 4-2-1
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 Most tour stages

I'm pretty okay with the categories you chose.
But I miss first stage in TdF. It's the officious WC for sprinters.
And further, the more categories there are, the more I like it.

Predicting races is nice.
But predictions about our own teams and about our own game is more than nice and make the game more valuable.
In addition to best value/€, you can predict the worst ...
Team leading end of april.
Predict top 5-teams, predict worst 5-teams, ...

PM sent, cast your votes!!! :judge:

(Thanks everybody! Nice ideas, Ace!)

But I miss first stage in TdF. It's the officious WC for sprinters.

The same could be said for the last stage. And since it's a bit too boring to pick the green jersey nowadays, went with most stages.

In addition to best value/€, you can predict the worst ...
Predict top 5-teams, predict worst 5-teams, ...

So much negativity... why? :P

Team leading end of april.

Nice, threw in both the team and the rider!
