World Cycling Stats 2018
« on: January 12, 2018, 02:47:31 pm »


A new season starts in the World Cycling Stats !   8)

For new participants who want to join the cycling for fun subleague in WCS :

1. Click this link :  http://www.worldcyclingstats.com/en/games

2. Create an account ( it is free ).

3. Join the cycling for fun subleague.
Click a tour or race that is open for participation, then click leagues, now you see a list of all subleagues, search for cycling for fun and click it.
To join, you have to use this code/password : SMJVO3G5
Participants who already joined the cycling for fun subleague do not have to use the password,
they just have to click the cycling for fun subleague and are automatically in.

4. You can change the language ; at the top of your WCS start page ( English, Dutch, Spanish or French ).

5. To play this game costs almost no time, just a few minutes to pick 15 cyclists and answer the extra questions.
You can also read a preview of the tour or race, a lot of previews are online. But this is not necessary, in my experience sometimes better results when you do the 15 picks + extra questions very fast without reading a preview.

6. After you picked your 15 cyclists and answered the extra questions ; nothing more to do, just relax and enjoy how your picks are doing. Do not forget to activate the 15 picks and extra questions with the select button at the bottom of your screen.

7. Enjoy and have fun !  :)

An example of a preview :
Just to read a bit:

http://www.cyclingnews.com/races/tour-down-under-2018/preview/

If you have questions, post it in this topic. A lot of CFF managers can help you and answer the questions.
Also you can use this topic to post a lot of different things ; the most important reason of this topic is to have fun.  :)
And advertise this game to your friendly CFF managers please ; more participants is even more fun.

Also in 2018 there will be the season trophies.
The winners of the CFF League season trophies of 2017 are :

Divine Champions Trophy = Vos
Chief of Classic Trophy = oldmen
Emperor of Stage Wins Trophy = oldmen
Royal Sprint Trophy = oldmen
King of the Mountains Trophy = oldmen
Prince of Youth Trophy = oldmen
Giro d'Italia Trophy = Aurora Australis
Tour de France Trophy = MarnixStar
Vuelta a España Trophy = Txonys
World Champion Trophy = oldmen

Good luck and have fun everyone !  :)

The first tour of 2018 has already 7 participants in the cycling for fun subleague.
A red cross means your selection is not complete (or it means you still have to answer the extra question ).
Check your 15 picks before the deadline, especially at the start of the season there will be changes before the tour starts.

2 days and 20 hours left to participate or make changes.

Also open to join and already 10 participants in the cycling for fun subleague :
3 days and 10 hours left to participate or make changes.

Also already open to join is the Vuelta a San Juan ( it starts in 9 days ).

General info : of course you do not have to play every tour and race of 2018.
For example some CFF managers play just the important tours and/or races, and some CFF managers play when they have the time and are in the mood to have fun in the WCS ( again, it costs almost no time to play this game and it is a free game and a lot of fun  :) ).

General info : this topic is in English.
But no problem if you use English full of mistakes, the main thing is that the reader can understand it.
Also no problem if you cannot write English (or you don't know how to use google translator or you don't have the time to use google translator) and use your own language in this topic.

Información general: este tema está en inglés.
Pero no hay problema si usa inglés lleno de errores, lo principal es que el lector puede entenderlo.
También no hay problema si no puede escribir en inglés (o si no sabe cómo usar el traductor de Google o si no tiene tiempo para usar el traductor de Google) y usa su propio idioma en este tema.

La Tropicale is truly a hard race to start with.

Is one of my favourite races of the year. I am really into African Cycling, specially eritrean.

However, I've been picking my riders with the hearth still than with the head  ;D ;D

For example I'm following Zemenfes Solomon since 2016, and I'm pretty sure he will get a stagiare contract this year. I want him to win the Tropicale, so I picked him as a winner. However, he won't win  ;D ;D

1½ hour left to participate or make changes.
There are 13 participants.  8)
X --> Vos, plopsaladaantje, WinterIsComing and Combuijs. Check your picks when you read this in time.

To Thorin ; Funny, this tour was never part of the WCS before, but I remember this tour because you used this one several seasons ago in the big tour of the Live Races. Great job back then of you, and of course I understand you want to win this one. But my nickname is Zorro the Africa specialist, so it will be difficult for you to win :))
( just kidding, I have no clue who to pick, but it is a fun tour^^ )

According to me nothing went wrong and you are in the Tour Down Under. You are in La Tropicale also.

Carstensen (GER) wins stage 1.
CFF League stage 1 winner = Averatalm   8)


Greipel wins stage 1.

CFF League stage 1 winner = Averatalm   8)

Very good start of the season of Averatalm with 2 stage victories !
In the Tour Down Under he has fierce competition of defending champion Kalarratas ( 2nd in stage 1 ).
In 2017 he won this tour and had the best season result of all CFF participants with his 2nd place WCS overall ranking in the Tour Down Under.
