On scoring for team time trail, if your rider is not one of the first 5 to finish of the team do they still get points?

Hi, yes, the wording on the 'stages' page is:

Quote:

Team Time Trial scoring. 20 points for each participating member of the first place team down to 2 point for each participating member of the 10th placed team

That means each member of the winning team gets 20 points, each member of the second place team gets 18 and so on down to 2 points for each member of the 10th place team.

First official race was Tour Down Under in January.

The overall table shows total year scores so it's likely I'll be way out in front in the league just because I've played from the start and most others appear to be joining for the Tour so you can pretty much ignore that. The Tour league will be interesting though, historically I'm not amazing at the Tour, finished something like 115th last year.

Your team all set Dan? Think mine's nearly finished, will prob have another look at it the day before.

Possibly thinking of foregoing my purist team in an effort to get top 10 after stage 1, very risky and highly improbable, but might be worth loading up with 10 sprinters

Nearly sorted, had awful slow internet here today so not bothered to tinker but likely to have a play tomorrow. Pinot is in at the minute but very tempted to swap him for Quintana...

Will see how I feel tomorrow afternoon when I make my final changes.

can everyone who's *not* a rookie stop pissing and moaning on this thread please? it's not for you to try and score points against each other. and you doing so will put off people who actually want help.

I've deleted those comments

I have joined a purist and a non-purist league with the same login. Will the team lock at the deadline and then free up for the non-purist league? Or do I need a separate login

When viewing the league positions, click on the number giving their team score. That'll show you the scores for their individual riders from the last stage.

Wish I knew that earlier although when your team is dictated by an 8 year old leaving about 24ish points for 6 riders choice can be limited.

Appreciate your reply. Off to look at the 'howto'. Many thanks  26

Hi,

Is the £10 to go premium a yearly fee or one-off? If it's yearly is it season start to season end or for 365 days from the payment?

Thanks

The £10 is a yearly premium fee.

It runs on the season. So from the first race to the last, but you can come in at any time. I would suggest holding onto your money until the start of next season and getting full value as there as so few races left  3

Since I picked my team for the world championship road race the other day it has now gone over budget (I assume a few riders have gone up in value). Thing is, I don't wish to change it. Will I get penalised if the team is over 100 at the time of the race or do I need to change it now?

The budget is 150 and no riders should have changed in price since the competition opened.

Interesting as I just had a similar problems but couldn't really be a##ed to report it. However seeing this.

I didn't note the exact riders, but the totals did not add up.

IE

the amount that it showed me as having left was not equal to 150 minus the riders I had picked.

There was a difference of 0.9 and although my team was showing me with a credit balance, it was also saying I was over my budget. I checked the maths manually, and there was definitely a glitch in the system somewhere

just FYI.

I see a lot of riders are labeled 'Popular Riders'. What does 'Popular' mean? When a rider is marked as 'Popular,' is that becaase they were 'Popular' in the last race or because they are 'Popular' in the current teams people are fidgeting around with right now? So is the 'Popular' standing calculated every day? Are there a certain amount of 'Popular' riders, say the Top 20 'Most Popular Riders'? Or are they shown because they have been selected say by more than 20% - or some other number - of the teams? Just wondering...

Popular, means at a certain percentage picked them in the last stage or race. I can't remember what that percentage is though

So how do I create a team, all I get is window closed at the moment or do I have to wait until season starts.
