2019 Calendar
« on: October 11, 2018, 08:05:50 AM »
We need to add Gran Piemonte next year, it’s an HC. Wasn’t on the calendar in 2017 which explains this year’s oversight.

Austria has been a 2.1 for the last couple of years.

According to PCS:

- No Dubai Tour (merged with Abu Dhabi);
- Bredene Koksijde Classic in as an HC;
- Yorkshire goes HC;
- Tour of Slovenia goes HC;

I would also sneak in Deutschland Tour. It's likely that they grow to HC and it's a big race, with a field better than some WT races.

Once I went deeper, I saw a lot of races folding.

(Unfortunately the autumn calendar is a question mark as usual, so we'll have to assume they all just continue.)

It would be nice to identify the largest 1.1/2.1 events and get some in, so that the total number of races in the game stays constant. My candidates:

A) The No-Brainers

Hammer Stavanger & Limburg (2.1)


B) The Why-Nots

Hammer Hong Kong (2.1, I'm a tad concerned about the field)

Volta a la Comunitat Valenciana (2.1)

Poels 2016, Nairo 2017, 2018:

1.VALVERDE Alejandro 16:14:53
2.SÁNCHEZ Luis León0:14
3.FUGLSANG Jakob0:26
4.YATES Adam0:37
5.HERRADA Jesús0:48
6.ROGLIČ Primož0:49
7.BILBAO Pello0:54
8.KREUZIGER Roman0:57

Gran Premio Miguel Indurain (1.1)

Ion Izagirre 2016, Simon Yates 2017, 2018:

1.VALVERDE Alejandro4:41:18
2.VERONA Carlos0:20
3.SCHULTZ Nick1:04
4.PRADES Eduard1:16
5.BETANCUR Carlos,,
6.SOLER Marc1:19
7.ZAKARIN Ilnur1:30
8.CALMEJANE Lilian1:43
9.ŠPILAK Simon,,

Gran Premio Città di Lugano (1.1, 1.HC before)

Previously won by Kübler, Coppi x3, Anquetil x7, Poulidor, Merckx, Altig, Ocaña, Zoetemelk, Bettini. 2018:

1.PERNSTEINER Hermann4:53:05
2.SBARAGLI Kristian0:32
3.GASPAROTTO Enrico1:33
4.ULISSI Diego1:40
5.VISCONTI Giovanni,,
6.POZZOVIVO Domenico,,
7.CICCONE Giulio1:57

Mont Ventoux Dénivelé Challenge (1.1)

1st edition. Should be a blast?

Deutschland Tour (as argued above)

Colombia 2.1 (2.1)

2nd edition. 2018:

1.BERNAL Egan 20:49:03
2.QUINTANA Nairo0:08
3.URÁN Rigoberto0:11
4.HENAO Sergio0:12
5.MARTÍNEZ Daniel Felipe0:43
6.SOSA Iván Ramiro0:45
7.ALAPHILIPPE Julian0:50


Thoughts?

All is maybe a bit much? I think in principle I have space for 6 of the above-mentioned 9.

Update: since nobody else chipped in, I had to make the decision myself.

Apart from the WC TTT, none of the autumn races seem cancelled according to this and this.

For the sake of consistency, I'm throwing in all three Hammer Series.

Further, say hello to :Germany: Deutschland & Valencia, both having attracted 11 WT teams and very strong Pro Conti too, even though the latter owes the amazing field more to the fact that everybody needs some early racing kilometres in those legs.

And Mont Ventoux Dénivelé Challenge - what could possibly go wrong???

Missing out: Indurain (only :Katusha: :Movistar: :Orica: :Europcar: showed up), Lugano (only Bahrain & UAE showed up), Colombia (a slightly glorified NC, only 3-4 teams with motivated Colombians showed up).

  • Brent: Lots of individuals on Dallas.  If they pay Dak the $40M/yr that he wants,that will be the end of them.
    October 14, 2019, 01:45:58 AM
  • Yeagg: Dak has been playing well
    October 14, 2019, 01:49:03 AM
  • indiansnation: i agree with brent he is good but not worth that kind of money
    October 14, 2019, 01:53:50 AM
  • Brent: He's not $40M/yr good.  they they will have 20% of their cap tied up in one position.
    October 14, 2019, 01:54:56 AM
  • Yeagg: Honestly idk BooYah! about football. I just play fantasy football for fun
    October 14, 2019, 01:56:44 AM
  • Yeagg: I'm still trying to figure out how I have Dak Prescott, LeVeon Bell, Austin Ekeler, Phillip Lindsay, DeAndre Hopkins, Michael Thomas, Mike Williams, AJ Green, Darren Waller, Nick Bosa, Josh Allen, Khalil Mack, and Blake Martinez on one of my fantasy teams and I am 3-3
    October 14, 2019, 01:59:13 AM
  • indiansnation: yeagg wait till aj green comes back he will help your team so much
    October 14, 2019, 02:01:04 AM
  • indiansnation: u got a very good team yeagg
    October 14, 2019, 02:01:28 AM
  • Brent: Same concept especially if you consider NFLC.  The NFL salary cap is the same as our $188.2M year.  The difference is RL football you have to pay offensive lineman and most teams carry 6-8 with left tackle being about the highest paid non QB position.  That was until recently, but they still get paid.  So if you pay your QB $40M/yr, your LT $15M/yr and the rest of your line a total of about $25-35M year, that could be $90M on 6-7 players.  You still have to field all of your skill positions and defense for the other $100M.

  • Yeagg: I should be better than a .500 team
    October 14, 2019, 02:02:00 AM
  • Brent: Yeah, I have a couple redraft leagues where I should be better than I am.
    October 14, 2019, 02:02:36 AM
  • Yeagg: Isn't that where drafting comes in handy
    October 14, 2019, 02:02:49 AM
  • Brent: Exactly
    October 14, 2019, 02:03:34 AM
  • Yeagg: I was referring to the cap space comment in case you didn't know
    October 14, 2019, 02:04:38 AM
  • indiansnation: i think its harder guessing what yound guys will produce in nfl than baseball
    October 14, 2019, 02:05:31 AM
  • Brent: The Cowboys got lucky with La'ell Colllins.  He was 1st round talent, but fell out of the draft to UDFA due to false allegations that he was cleared of. So they got one of if not the best OT from that draft for peanuts.  Eventually he will need to be paid.
    October 14, 2019, 02:06:28 AM
  • Brent: Yeah, the draft is huge and also hitting on UDFAs.  Teams have to develop and then keep their own talent or they'll go broke and end up in salary cap hell.
    October 14, 2019, 02:07:09 AM
  • Yeagg: So basically just like baseball
    October 14, 2019, 02:17:10 AM
  • indiansnation: yep nfl u gotta watch how much u pay look at browns they are going to have that problem in 2021 they have alot of good tallent thats going to need to get paid.
    October 14, 2019, 02:17:13 AM
  • Yeagg: And no way Brian. Baseball has 40 rounds and still most of those guys never even sniff the MLB
    October 14, 2019, 02:17:33 AM
  • Yeagg: More 1st round picks are bust than even play a full season
    October 14, 2019, 02:18:02 AM
  • Brent: They also have between now and then to figure out who will be resigned and who will be replaced and don't they still have quite a few 1st round picks between now and then?
    October 14, 2019, 02:24:21 AM
  • indiansnation: Hey if u have a top notch gm with a great scouting staff u can make any player u draft be great. Look at Boston their minors sick why is that because they suck at drafting. Know look at Tampa and indians and miami they have pretty dang good minors especially I diane look at who they had pitching this year bauer got traded, and they lost 2 of their sp most. Of the yr
