FORUM'S SCORUM's MINI LEAGUE 2014(Spring Classics and Pre-Giro tours)

by ray silvester   March 2, 2014  

Just a few points of business

1)The League we are using is the one with apostrophe's named Forum's Scorum's with an ID of 76157

2)As well as the standard competitions we will also have a UCI type ranking system(to be reffered to as FSUCI) based on pts assigned for stages and competitions as follows:

Grand Tour Overall:35,20,15,10,7,5,4,3,2,1
Grand Tour Purist Overall:10,6,3,2,1
Multi Stage Race Overall:10,6,3,2,1
Multi Stage Race Overall Purist:5,4,3,2,1
Autumn Classics/Spring Classics/Worlds/Commonwealths/Womens World Cup Overall Competitions(standard only):20,15,10,8,6,5,4,3,2,1
Every Stage:3,2,1....ties will be broken by GC position within that competition and then within the game.
Queen Stage in Giro/TDF/Vuelta:10,8,6,4,2,1

I'll try and outline the points available for each competition prior to the start


a)Teams must be entered into the league on stage 1 of a tour/multi stage competition to be considered for the GC in that race.

b)Teams must be entered by STAGE ONE of the SPRING CLASSICS to be considered for GC in the Overall Competition.

c)Teams will be considered for stage FSUCI ranking points for individual stages on the stage in which they enter......and FSUCI ranking points for competition GC from the first race that they are entered for AT STAGE ONE.

4) Below we will keep a record of the individual competition winners and add them to those of 2013

Most of all.....have fun....get involved in the banter.....earn your bragging rights and use them....and try not to lynch me if I foul things up(although I welcome appeals if people feel hard done by) as this will very much be a dry run for some of the new features.

naffets score corrected(31pts.....I forgot to delete the 29 when he scored 2pts for the 4th place overall in Catalunya.

I'll do a big update tomorrow for Roubaix and am dreading doing Vais Pasco where Twy beat me to the purist win by 3 pts At Wits End

I think I did well in the women's Ronde so have my eye on the top 6. Having said that, Vasco was a bit of a non-event...

Yeah I know, I came 2nd overall and won a rucksack! Hooray! I think my std and purist came 1st and 2nd in women's Ronde for FS but I'm not sure. I was certainly on a brief surge anyway! Thanks again for doing the scores for all this when it sounds like you're so busy. Applause
