Rider Names - Tour de France

by enrique   March 18, 2013  

Originally created to report name corrections in the game. * Francisco Jose Ventoso (Movistar) appears in the game as Fransisco Jose Ventoso. I'm pretty sure his name is spelled "Francisco" not "Fransisco".*

The organizers really dropped the ball for this race... Thinking It's amazing, you'd think the organizers would be the ones who most care about the accuracy of their own race's start list Thinking

In this case, you uttered no truer words than you did last year:

I can't find the Belkin rider Martijn Keizer in the game... I have him in a list like he was in the game before, but he appears in the list I had downloaded as 'no trade team'

Also, Henao is listed in Saxobank for LBL Devil

Probably. That's good, though! Smile I know you haven't gotten around to the Pro Continental Teams but I was looking at the Giro D'Italia start lists and looking at Team Colombia I see that Edwin Alciviades Avila in the game appears as Edwin 'Alcibiades' on the UCI page and the Team Colombia website...

I have a suggestion. You probably have all these folks at Team Colombia and probably most of the riders from Spanish Speaking countries down with their first name, middle name , father's last name and mother's last name...

The truth is, with all these Spanish and Latin American names, you could probably do away with their middle names for the game. For the most part, riders, like Segio Luis Henao, are usually just called Sergio Henao, Nairo Alexander Quintana could easily just be called Nairo Quintana, etc...

It would make the names shorter, the database neater and it would visually look less congested with less names around a rider...

I would even get rid of the mother's last name, as in Igor Anton Hernandez, and just use Igor Anton, and only use the mother's last name to distinguish two riders who have identical first and last names, if necessary... I think it would look neater that way... Thanks! Smile

Since it's not that busy for a while now, wouldn't it be nice to clean up the Latin American and Spanish names to make for shorter names? I can provide you a list if you want...

By the way, I think there might be a space character [ ] in the database after Daniel Martin's name and after Mikel Landa's ... Thinking

This has been on my trivial things to point out for over a year now... I'm so ashamed to give in to my compulsion to pick at little details, but, what am I to do?... Confused ...

With both riders in current competitions I thought I'd point out that both Mikel Landa and Dan Martin have 'spaces' after their names in the database, as in 'Mikel_Landa_' and 'Dan_Martin_' I don't know why... maybe because their names were orginally cut from a list and pasted, and the 'space' was inadvertantly carried over into the database?... Thinking Why do I bother? Thinking I don't know... I have OCD?... Thinking

Anyways on to more pressing issues... I think it'd be nice to shorten some names, like 'Jose Joao Pimenta Costa Mendes' to just 'Jose Mendes', 'Rui Faria Da Costa' to 'Rui Costa', Michael Valgren Andersen to 'Michael Valgren', 'Nairo Alexander Quintana' to 'Nairo Quintana', 'Sergio Luis Henao' to just 'Sergio Henao', 'Jose Joaquin Rojas Gil' to just 'Jose Joaquin Rojas', 'Magnus Cort Nielsen' to just Magnus Cort and maybe 'Rafael Valls Ferri' to just 'Rafael Valls'
... I don't know... maybe because it's aesthetically pleasing to me...

Not when they are listed like that on official startlists, because then in becomes a case of remembering what they were shortened to, I already have that issue with some of the women's names that I shortened
