The Worlds TT

by TERatcliffe26   September 15, 2011  

So what are the tactics for this with the new rules?

I see two main options, having more AR's and compromising you DS's or having less AR's and some better DS's

At the moment i have 1 GC, 4 AR's and 4 DS's however two of my DS's are not great shouts, in effect they are just riding, however i believe i have 6 really good chances from that

My other option would be to revert to 1 GC, 3 AR's and 5 DS's allowing me to improve my DS's and possibly have 7 or 8 decent hopefuls

well ive come up with another option but is it too much of a risk to go with the guy who came 2nd in 2008 rather than the guy that came 179th in the vuelta TT

Teratcliffe, you female? you keep chopping and changing your mind Devil

So with your 5AR have you still managed one of the big 3?

Got 8 picked and struggling with the last one but no doubt will have to mess about and change a couple when the proper list comes out.

Snap, that's if you class Millar and Wiggins as Scotland and England and not GB.

God help my team then if they ever turned out as a pro team as other than Wiggins and Millar none of mine speak the same language Crying

Just had my first major revamp after a wee bit of research. Still have 1 GC, 3 AR, and 5 DS including a couple of wildcards I think might do well. All but one European or Commonwealth. Majority English speaking. Two countrymen, two team mates. Still got 6.4 credits to play with. Hurry up Wednesday! Big Grin

Are the rider lists going to be trimmed down to just those that are competing in both the TT and Road World champ races before Wednesdays deadline?

That poses an interesting question then, not that i think Bauer can win, BUT if something strange was to happen and he won, would the points go from 2-21?

Or if say 4 riders who are not in the game got into the top 20 would this mean that 21-24 score points?

Also, If a rider not in the game went on to win, would other riders from that country get 5 points, this would be more a factor in the road race though Thinking

Not that i like making things complicated Devil

Are you allowed 5AR and 3DS riders? Do you not have to have the allocated number of people from each section?

The simple answer to that is no. You can pick whoever you want for the Worlds.

I believe the simple answer would have been YES NO Devil

So Yes, you can have 5AR and 3DS in your team, BUT you will also need another rider because you HAVE to have 9 riders

And NO in the world championships you don't have to have someone from every section

Is there any place on the site where you can see how your team stacked up to the others just for this race - the WC TT?

I already asked on another part of the forum, but just wanted to post it here, too, just in case I got a quicker answer. Smile
