Pick 3 Yanks

by JAndrewHill   May 10, 2014  

Just pullng this together into 1 thread. Not sure how to get the scores at the end of the #TOC though.

So far, I read...
Is there scope for a 'pick three yanks' comp?

Its a marathon, not a snickers

...

There are only 36 yanks riding so it might be a bit tight for picking 3 but its worth having a go.

How about doing it on a smaller budget? Say 30 credits? Thinking

Tough to go from the Giro budget to the ToC. Very different beast.

Purist is 4 Americans, 3 Brits and 2 Aussies. Sagan too expensive...

If there are enough for a Los Tres Yanquis comp, then I'll pile in. 30 space credits total would be sensible.

Nah, I would say 40 credits is ok. 30 riders means over 900 combinations.

people need to decide on the credits first, 30 or 40. I have a team for both if it gets up and running.

Personally i would go with 40.

There aren't many americans, so to drop the budget too much may make it too hard, so lets stick with 40.0.

I might do a calculation where i divide the final total score of a threesome by their total value and see which threesome has the best points per value score, just for fun. bit nerdy maybe.

Righto everyone, I think ive got all the teams, and got them correct.

I have a score update after 6 stages

Tom Amos 273*
Joelsim 191
Stumps 152
Ghedebrav 150
Chrisdstripes 146
Stevemarks 144
JAndrewhill 131
TERatcliffe26 127
Nata1ia 113
Livestrongnick 108
NeilG83 88

*Just one slight problem Tom Amos's team was over budget, noticed this as he had the exact team that I wanted but was about .6 off being able to afford it.

Although t just some fun at the end of the day

The best team you could have picked I so far believe would have been Craddock, Phinney and Chris Jones (scoring slightly more the Tom's team)
