2017 calendar brainstorming
« on: October 28, 2016, 02:46:36 PM »
UCI WorldTour

Some people suggest I should include all HC. To me, that's a horrible idea. In the likes of Hainan or Langkawi - apart from your usual Palini&Guardini's - exactly one COMPLETELY RANDOM decent rider usually goes there and wins 5 stages. That's Walscheid in Hainan 2016, or that one time Rabo needed an ego boost: http://cqranking.com/men/asp/gen/tour.asp?tourid=2503

So the question is where to draw the line. Thus this thread.

Current 2017 calendar:
  • all WT races, WC, EC
  • all European HC
  • select other HC races (which ones?)
  • no .1 races


RC,CR,WSC - WT+WC+EC only



QF - like this year



FYC



Thoughts?

Personally I don't have anything against all th HC races. Often youth is given a chance in the Asian ones.

Plus Andalusia and Algarve, although these may be HC next year anyway.

Edit: yes they are and a couple of others too, details here, so these should be added.

I think European HC races are OK. Perhaps together wih Dubai and Oman. Not sure if the American races are interesting enough. No .1 races

Happy just to add those 4 new European HCs then. Leave the Asian ones and keep the US races. Cool by me.

Here is my official proposal, please please please PRETTY PLEASE WITH SUGAR ON TOP check for bugs ASAP:
https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1x0SOLrswTiG7pjiEkLXtdzj5MpknRSvDgXhUx60pjnc/edit#gid=1796025982

New WT races in, 3 new European HC races in, EC ITT&RR in, Utah still in, Langkawi & Hainan & Qinghai still out, Colorado still in but will not count if it returns as .1, Nobili out, PT shockingly out, Eurométropole out, Münsterland out, Bayern still in as a place-holder - to be replaced with that-one-stupid-race-I-forgot if needed, Austria still in since those dudes say it's HC again: http://www.velowire.com/UCIcyclingcalendar/class/3/2-hc.html

Can anybody remember any of those races people complained during this season for being excluded-but-already-HC or included-but-already-.1?

Good link, thanks!

Happy to oblige :toth:

I think it is fine as it is.

I wish. Unfortunately, there is no such thing. The calendar keeps changing violently IRL.
Problem is, I hate editing the calendar after November 1, and pretty much always refuse to do so after January 1.

Would it be worth highlighting the WT races given there are a load of new ones?
