I'm kind of stuck without internet - if that is even be possible in 2018... after my mobile hit the floor before x-mas it refuses to connect my laptop through it also :p But rest asure, it will be fixed before the riders hit Adelaide.

Main honcho Tomasz is sick at the moment, he'll clear things up shortly.

no, but Tomas is!

Is the team competition bugged?

Yes too late for that. I will make a note to review it for the game next year.

zKobalt [FruitnOats] Thursday 4.Jan 12:03, 2018
CC Australia or too short notice for a game this weekend?

Wow, already two races on the game.
I’m in, of course...:)

P.S. Will we have the new competition, regarding duels? Tomas? :)

Tank: Remember that manager results will never change because of somebody being busted. Would be madness to recalculate Vuelta manager many months after if Froome lose it.

We did try to get in as many of the top quality races as we could but we had to pull a lot because of startlist problems.

Clearly doesn't matter what anybody says here, think the guy(s) in charge decided already. My too cents; we should really focus on the races with fair and decent startlists. Starting with .UWT races and work you way down from .HC to .1 races. Personally I don't like the South-American and African races as the results is usually corrected after the doping results come in.

After some more discussions, Vuelta a Colombia.... will stay on the calendar for 2018.

Colombia is a legend. Happy it stays.

Quick update. After some thought, Tour of Denmark, Brussels and Fourmies will all be in the Calendar for next year.

I agree Boris ... Vuelta a colombia is a joke ... 2017 game was a tragedy....

Ah i see Burgos has changed dates now officially. So perhaps Denmark could be looked into.

Thanks both for your feedback.

I will have a look into Vuelta a Colombia with Andy today. Oro y Paz will have a decent Startlist so that's why that one is in there.

In terms of the suggestions you have made Boris. Clasica De Almeria and Handzame both suffer from Startlists not being available in time, the same goes for GP Miguel Indurain. GW U23 is mainly on there because we did have to cancel RVV U23 last year and if the organisation is poor again then we at least have it as another U23 to play. Lugano and Argovie also suffer from the Starlists not being available in time. Route De Sud, Ster ZLM and Slovenia also suffer from these problems and Tour De Savoie will never be removed. PCS isn't an official source and Austria is on UCI calendar. Burgos is around the same time as Denmark in reality, and we felt Burgos was the better race of the two. In terms of Fourmies and Brussels, they could be re-added, we just felt we had the right amount of races without those 2 in. Beghelli and Varesine have Startlist issues as some of the others above. But some of the suggestions can be looked into further.

boris03 [Cycling lions] Friday 29.Dec 08:56, 2017
I don't want Tour of Colombia too. This race isn't even more in UCI America Tour calendar. We don't need that race.
Maybe we can include Clasica de Almeria in February, it's 1.HC race. Handzame Classic can be added too, 1.HC race and with Nokere Koerse it creates nice two game between Tirreno and San Remo.
I don't think we need Gent-Wevelgem U-23. RVV U-23 and Roubaix are enough in my opinion.
I hope we can play Gran Premio Miguel Indurain in front of Volta Limburg Classic. It usually has much stronger field and playing that game, researching for it and looking at it's results is good preparation for Pais Vasco.
We can maybe add GP Lugano and GP Argovie, or maybe only one of them. With their position in calendar they will be nice dress rehearsal for Tour de Suisse.
Route du Sud, Ster GP, Tour de Slovenie clearly deserve place in front of Tour de Azerbaidjan, Adriatica Ionica Race and Tour de Savoie Mont Blanc.
I don't see Österreich Rundfahrt in PCS calendar. Is race cancelled for this year?
In PCS calendar Vuelta a Burgos has it's place between 7-11.8. so this means we can do Tour of Denmark (2.HC race clearly bigger level than Vuelta a Colombia) too.
I think it's only a mistake why GP Brussels and GP Fourmies are missing. We had them before and in that period before Tour de Britain we don't have anything so why don't add them.
Why no GP Bruno Beghelli and Tre Valli Varesine (1.HC races)?

Took a quick look.
I'm not interested in: 2.1 06.02-11.02 - - Colombia Oro y Paz
Also Tour of Colombia in september can be tossed out.
Too many unknown riders and recently a lot of them tested positive so I'm not interested in races where a lot of dopers are active.

Hello All,

I hope you are all having a great Christmas/New Year break. Myself and Andy have been sorting out the calendar for the 2018 manager game and it's now ready for you to look at. Please feel free to give us some feedback on it. And just one thing to note, the date of some of the National Championships may change as they have not all the details have been fully released by the various federations. At the moment we have the amount of races for 2018 numbered at 120.
