Dream Team

by letsgoup   February 4, 2013  

I notice that "the dream team" is made up of the highest scoring 9 riders in the competition on each stage. But the reality is that rarely will anyone ever achieve that score because it does not allow for the 2 riders per team rule. Is it possible to make the dream team score incorporate this rule so those better than I am at the game can see how close they come to achieving perfection. For the likes of myself I can then see how far away I am from perfection. Thinking

That's why its called a DREAM team, you can but dream.

Its worked fine this far, so I don't see why it needs changed.

It does say

This team may not be selectable due to team and/or budget constraints

Well done Gkam I didn't read that bit. It would be nice to dream about the game rather than the usual cold sweats and nightmares Crying Crying Keep up the good work Wink

Maybe next year there could be a badge for anyone who picks the perfect team with the constraints Devil

I agree the badge scheme is really good. Like most I thought it was a bit play school but it really is great to have something to aim at once you fall so far behind with scoring, which lets face it is the majority of us after a few stages. Crying

What other badges could we have Thinking

One for the ITT, one for the TTT, maybe one for most combative or winner on cobbles?

I think there'll be jersey competitions too for the grand tour which will be something else to aim for outside of GC.

doing any other calculation than picking the top nine scoring riders makes things pretty complicated.
