Upcoming races

by Gkam84   February 8, 2013  

So Oman has just been opened, I'm in charge of that one again.

Then I'm also in charge of the early session classics.

Looking for suggestions. NO MORE than 1 race a day, but trying to squeeze in a few before Paris - Nice for the lovely premiums to enjoy.

Obviously it all has to be run by Dave, but so far I have

Omloop Het Nieuwsblad 23rd Feb
Kuurne-Brussel-Kuurne 24th Feb
Le Samyn 27th Feb
Strade Bianche 2nd March

So am I missing any I should think about looking at? It needs for have around 75% of teams already in the game, else it means adding loads of new riders. I don't mind doing that, but I don't want to overload the place.

What else does it entail? I'd be happy to help out if anyone stumbles or is just short on time....

Alot more than just a csv. But don't worry, I have the whole season covered for any of the other 3 who might not be able to do a race/stage for whatever reason Nerd

I know the notable racing without having to look them up Wink It was just fitting in races with similar teams so I didn't have to do wholesale changes to much.

That's why I have ended up with the four and its still going to be quite a bit extra work Nerd

I think there are plenty of races. The balance is about right. Best not to overcrowd the game in my opinion. Its good to have them regularly and its also good to have a few days off or even a week inbetween, especially when picking up to four teams over two races at one time.

I agree with the above comments....We dont need swamping with races....a few days in between is good sometimes and then the game still remains something to look forward to and it does not become a chore....

Well the way its space, gives you a few days from now till 23rd/24th and then couple of days till 27th, then few days to 2nd March. BUT, then its straight into the Paris-Nice on 3rd March

Sounds good, I assume squads for Omloop/Kuurne will be pretty similar?

Then I guess it makes sense to have unlimited windows between those then and keep Omloop/Kuurne as one thing.

Right, I'm going to make you ALL do a little thought into your teams, I'm going to publish the start lists and you will have to work out your teams OFF game, because I cannot add all the riders in.....

I'll have all the riders for Omloop/Kuurne in the start list, you will have to work out who's in what race yourselves Devil

So basically we will have to manually search for non-riding riders for our purist teams to comprise all the races

Nah, there are proper unlimited windows so you can make purist changes after the first two and between the last two.

For standard teams you'll have to work out who's riding the first, last or both as it'll be one list covering both races.

That's how I understand it anyway.

Right. ALL the riders for the Omloop and Kuurne will be listed in the startlist.

So you will have to pick between.

There will be 4 transfers between them for normal teams, but purists will have to work it out.

Then it will be unlimited as I change the startlists around for Le Samyn and you will have to pick between the riders for that and Strade Bianche with 6 transfers between.

At the end of each race, I will remove the none riders for the next race, to make your transfers a bit easier Nerd
