Vfr: The Monuments 2015

Postby vfr on Tue 17/Mar/15 9:33am

The Monuments vorb fantasy race is back for the 2015 edition. It starts this weekend and will continue for the next month and a half. It consist of 4 "stages", each one of the spring classics one day races
Milan - San Remo on March 22rd
Tour of Flanders on April 5th
Paris Roubaix on April 12th
Liège–Bastogne–Liège on April 26th

The event start list (from procyclingstats) for the first race are not even close finalised so we recommend you check back as close to the start date as possible to make sure your selections are still valid or if one of your favorite riders has been added to the startlist.

Team selection:
Click the "Pick your riders" button above and select the members of your vorb fantasy race team. Next to each riders name you will see the riders ranking. As you select riders you will see your total team size and strength updated at the bottom. Your team must have 8 riders with a combined strength ranking of 8000 points or less. We will not be closing the rider selection so you can (and probably should) change your team lineup for each of the 4 races. Although, we do request that you do not change your selection after a race has started and before the scores are recorded. Players caught doing so may be penalised.
Before the race starts, a randomly generated team will be entered so players can gauge their skills as a team manager against those of a drunken chimpanzee throwing darts at a printout of the startlist.

Scoring:
Points are awarded for the finish of each of the 4 races, 30 points are awarded to the first finisher down to 1 point for 30th place
Because these are one day races, no intermediate sprint or KoM bonus points will be awarded

Okay so It looks like the collective wisdom says I have to have Cavendish on my team :hmmm:

Do I go with the flock or do I gamble he'll get himself into trouble in the first sprint?

He does have the nasty habit of ending up on the floor at some point during the first few days of the TdF. So, skipping him could be a good tactic. On the other hand, he is "cheap". Possibly because he does have the nasty habit of ending up on the floor at some point during the first few days of the TdF

Startlist updated. All the pro teams now have full squads listed so now would be a good time to check your squads.

Tugboat in particular may be interested to note that Luis Leon Sanchez is no longer listed as a starter
A quick google search only turned up a single story, confirming this, in l'equipe, "Cyclisme-Milan-San Remo : Euskaltel sans Sanchez
Which, based on 2 years of french lessons taken a very long time ago, means, The Euskaltel team is going to be without Sanchez"

Cheers. I better jump in and change him for another budget dark horse rider.

FYI... That Le Equipe story must be pretty old since Euskatel disappeared from the WorldTour some time ago. And it's the wrong Sanchez too. They're talking Sammy not LuLu (who never rode for Euskatel!)

Ha! it was old. I saw Mar 13th and thought "that's current" and completed ignored the fact that it also said 2013
You can keep Luis Leon Sanchez and you wil get the points for his result, if he takes part.
All I am saying is he is not currently listed on the startlist published by procyclingstats. He may reappear tomorrow

Oops, too late I just hit submit and saw a note "At least one new post has been made to this topic. You may wish to review your post in light of this." along with your new squad. Well, good luck
