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

Wow... it looks like we're already set up for La Fleche Wallone! Cool! Ok, so I've got Rebellin and Denifl already grayed out... Out of curiosity, does the game engine work like the game interface? Meaning, can you deselect a whole team or do you have to 'individually', 'activate' and 'deactivate', each rider? Just curious... I'm really impressed!

There's a 3.0 rider called Mauricio Henao available on the game roster for Fleche Wallone. When I click on his name I get:
Then on Twitter, there's this:

I have to do EVERY rider individually, I can wipe the roster in one go, but to put them in is individual.
Henao is spelt right, the twitter you are showing is for a Colombian actor....not the pro cyclist
Also, I've checked elsewhere, he's not anywhere to be seen

[Mauricio] Henao is spelt right...
I just could't find him on the UCI Team Tinkoff Saxo roster (http://www.uci.ch/templates/BUILTIN-NOFRAMES/Template1/layout.asp?MenuId...) which the game has him assigned to. I couldn't find him on PCS, either... or on cyclingfever (http://www.cyclingfever.com/team.html?team_idd=OTQ0Mw==).
There is a 'Maurizio Henao Jaramillo' (http://www.cyclingarchives.com/coureurfiche.php?coureurid=7580) on the cylingarchives.com site, but I don't see him on the roster for Tinkoff Saxo either...
... the twitter you are showing is for a Colombian actor...
I know *sigh* I put him in there for comedic effect. He's famous for doing 'telenovelas' (soap operas) and he's 'beefcake' for the ladies in Miami and South America and every year he's on someone's list of 'The Most Beautiful People' of Latin TV... I thought it was funny he said he '[b]eing a [m]an is... hard..., i want to be [one] before im done'... I thought you might relate.. a little...
... I've checked elsewhere, he's not anywhere to be seen
Back to the rider, then, thanks for 'inactivating' him! Shouldn't he out of the game completely, then? Even if the entry refers to 'Mauricio Henao Jaramillo', he doesn't seem to be an active rider anymore... Just wondering It seems like he last rode in 2004...

If you care to check the startlist on the official site, you will see him listed there.
The birthday does match that rider listed above though.

Hmmm... the birthday does (!) match the rider in cyclingarchives.com, That's interesting! Hmmm... http://www.cyclingarchives.com/coureurfiche.php?coureurid=7580 It seems he may not have ridden in a while or someone never wrote about him or tracked him... Hmmm... Interesting...

And just as mysteriously as he appeared, he disappeared. Wow. I wonder what happened? The mysterious 'Mauricio Henao'. Will he ever ride again? I wonder why Saxo Tinkoff put him on the start list for La Fleche? Hmmm... he never showed on the PCS or cyclingfever start lists, or on the UCI website roster or on the Saxo Tinkoff website, but he did make a very brief appearance on the 'official' start list... The mysteries of the peloton are many... Fare thee well, Mauricio, I hope we meet again... and you come back to ride as a 3.0 rider again... We could certainly use you at the Tour...

He's still on the official startlist, so don't count him out yet

@ProCyclingStats just tweeted they think it must be Edward Beltran... Interesting ... The suspense is killing me...

Enrique....go sort it out for me. http://www.letour.fr/la-fleche-wallonne-femme/2014/us/starters.html
Just about to enter final start list for the womens race....look who appears there aswell....

... look who appears there as well....
Ha ha ha! That's amazing! I tweeted @flechewallone, no answer yet, but this just takes the cake! Amazing! What a verstaile rider! I bent over laughing so hard! Thank you! If we ever have a coed season long Purist competition, I'm putting him on my team!

Its not Fleche you need to tweet, it's @letour and I'm on it already
posted by Gkam84 [9040 posts] 22nd April 2014 - 18:31
@ProCyclingStats... tweeted they think it['s]... Edward Beltran...
The organizers really dropped the ball for this race... 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
In this case, you uttered no truer words than you did last year:
Race websites are normally the last places to update
*sigh* So long, Mauricio...

Heh apparently 'Mauricio Henao'and 'Tom Scully' made it into the Fleche Wallone Femenine results today, at least for a little while. No. 6 and No. 36 below:

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'

I'll get him bunged into Belkin. He was part of Vancansoleil and didn't get a contact till March....
Also, Henao is listed in Saxobank for LBL

It seems someone moved him for me....unless you just edited that post and it shows todays date?

Probably. That's good, though! 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!
