Kev wrote:Ok, official ruling time. The only reason participants are allowed to select full strength teams with only 5 - 6 riders is because I never got around to implementing a minimum size check. Now that a couple of people have adopted this high risk strategy I wanted to go on record and say I think it's Ok. So long as a team has 8 riders OR FEWER (should that be less? I'm never sure) with a combined strength of 8000 points OR LESS (should that be fewer? I'm never sure) they can compete

Those wishing to adopt the short bus strategy, be on notice. If the smaller teams appear to be outperforming I will have to get around to coding up that minimum size check.

Hey Kev can you confirm that 'short busing' is still ok? I am at 7 riders this time, if you want a 2.7k Sagan it's a struggle to make it to 8 riders...

It is still fine. I didn't do a deep analysis of the first race, but I would say that on average the smaller teams performed less well than full squads. Haveving said that, it can certainly be a valid tactic. I made a very conscious decision to trade Sagan for Degenkolb and Kristoff. At the the finish line Sagan scored more points than those 2 combined.

The race itself was fun to watch, with some great cat and mouse in the last 2km

In the Monuments vorb fantasy race, mfw is still determined to finish on the podium and claim his piece of flair.
great uncle bulgaria scored the most points today and has hurtled up the leaderboard
For all you players who picked Wiggins, he came in 32nd, just missing out on any points
