The season is not over, Tour of Fuzhou is shaking up the standings. boris has caught GBC due to El Fares, and further down it seems that Nathan will pass JOSEDIN now that Ovechkin beats Areruya in the GC.

Yawn. How's about an extra 100 gadrets each, and extending team max to 35? Liven up the rest of the night. :)

Partykjeppen [Il Piccolo Gregari] Friday 7.Jun 21:02, 2019
Now we should be speeding through rest of the rounds - anyone with a pick not yet made is skipped

Partykjeppen [Il Piccolo Gregari] Friday 7.Jun 20:24, 2019
More drafts in January, narrowing down difference between min and max squad size

Good point kjeppen...

Teams with zero Gadrets left;

CT Glory

Teams with zero spots left in team:

Luxembourg Finest(?)

Partykjeppen [Il Piccolo Gregari] Friday 7.Jun 20:19, 2019
I think we have to consider whether one draft a year will do.

Partykjeppen [Il Piccolo Gregari] Friday 7.Jun 20:18, 2019
How do you spell anticlimatic?

Aragonite [TORA TORA TORA] Friday 7.Jun 20:02, 2019
9th FC-manager overall - 9th FC-manager last 6 weeks
Not Strakhov? :)

Partykjeppen [Il Piccolo Gregari] Friday 7.Jun 20:00, 2019
Wise strategy. Though I’m considering an expensive steal for this half season just to top off points then reconfigurate

Aragonite [TORA TORA TORA] Friday 7.Jun 19:58, 2019
9th FC-manager overall - 9th FC-manager last 6 weeks
None unless someone steals from me. Think it takes a couple of seasons to work out how you want to play this game, by which time it's too late to play like that. Long term rejig for me now.

Partykjeppen [Il Piccolo Gregari] Friday 7.Jun 19:52, 2019
What sneaky manouverings are you up to, Aragonite?

Partykjeppen [Il Piccolo Gregari] Friday 7.Jun 19:03, 2019
Neko is online, great :)

Partykjeppen [Il Piccolo Gregari] Friday 7.Jun 19:01, 2019
I have not recieved any lists on behalf of anyone.

I know Remi is in Spain and might not make it, have not heard from Neko and Bendit didn't answer my text. They get the 10 minutes as anyone else to make their first pick, and we skip all their subsequent to they show up - if they do at all.

Remember that a skipped pick can only be used to steal from someone who haven't made a pick after if was supposed to have been made.

Partykjeppen [Il Piccolo Gregari] Friday 7.Jun 16:10, 2019
I'll be bussing my way to HQ and only following the draft on cell phone until around 20:00 - appreciate if Troy or Andy could move riders between teams until I'm all set up :)

Andy [Luxembourg Finest] Friday 7.Jun 14:42, 2019
25th FC-manager overall - 25th FC-manager last 6 weeks
But not enough to steal Porte :(

Partykjeppen [Il Piccolo Gregari] Friday 7.Jun 14:39, 2019
Fixed! Quite the sexy budget you have now, zKobalt.

zKobalt [FruitnOats] Friday 7.Jun 14:33, 2019
Kittel and Priedler released.

Tomas [Second Coming] Thursday 6.Jun 19:18, 2019
I'm stuck in UCI-rank mode. But will do an update here a little later. Scream out if 21:00-21:30 is after you become to tipsy ;)

Partykjeppen [Il Piccolo Gregari] Thursday 6.Jun 18:47, 2019
I will be updating all squads with announced contract amendments and trades tonight. Tomas/Andy/Assassin - let me know once rankings have been updated with Luxembourg/Boucles/Course results tonight, and that will be the basis for the draft order tomorrow. Will post it here once ready.

Andy [Luxembourg Finest] Wednesday 5.Jun 23:18, 2019
25th FC-manager overall - 25th FC-manager last 6 weeks
Are you all ready for my press release at 18:59 on Friday?

Partykjeppen [Il Piccolo Gregari] Tuesday 4.Jun 14:13, 2019
One of the few bullets I dodged in the January-draft: strongly considered stealing Strakhov, but seems like Alpecin has been as good for his talent and his hairline.

Assassin [Troy The Trader] Tuesday 4.Jun 14:03, 2019
I release Kennaugh. Thank you for your reevaluation on this.

Partykjeppen [Il Piccolo Gregari] Tuesday 4.Jun 13:40, 2019
I'll amend that along with other contract amendments/transfers before the weekend.

I've been asked about Kittel and thought a bit more broadly to include Pete Kennaugh's case.

If a rider takes an indefinite break, a year off etc. like Kennaugh has - the manager can chose to release him if they want. For Kittel it's a bit more straightforward as his contract has been terminated. Thus the manager is free to release him if they'd like - though it's a bit more of a risk/reward with a mid-season move to another team rumoured already.

So FruitnOats and Troy can post here if they want to release said riders.

Cordi3 [Rioja] Saturday 12.Jan 20:52, 2019
Ok, here we go. Bold move...

146. Philippe Gilbert 64€ (2019) i'm going for the win.

2019 it is. Tomas can correct it, and open up for part two while he's at it.

Cordi3 [Rioja] Monday 3.Jun 14:37, 2019
Hello, I think there is a mistake in my team, cause I think Gilbert had only contract until 2019. How can I check it? I can't find the message board of the previous draft.

Partykjeppen [Il Piccolo Gregari] Friday 31.May 13:25, 2019
You are quite the incestuous twosome.

Assassin [Troy The Trader] Friday 31.May 13:08, 2019
I have nothing to announce :D

Andy [Luxembourg Finest] Friday 31.May 11:40, 2019
25th FC-manager overall - 25th FC-manager last 6 weeks
How many transfers will the Trader himself announce the second Landa finishes his Giro?

Partykjeppen [Il Piccolo Gregari] Friday 31.May 01:08, 2019
Rules and deadlines for mid-season draft:

As soon as the Giro is finished on June 2nd, trades and contract increases/extentions can be announced.

Contract extentions: everyone can increase/extend up to four contracts. Contracts ending in 2020 can't be extended in this window, but you can increase a contract ending in 2019 to 2020 if you increase it by at least 15%. A thread will be opened where all amendments are to be posted. Remember that if a rider has a contract which ends in 2019 and you increase it in December, that rider can not be traded in the January-window.

Transfers: managers are free to trade both riders and draft picks as long as any rider traded is on at least 75% of the current wage on his new team. Again, there will be a dedicated thread for all transfers to be posted in.

Draft: starts at 19:00 CET on Friday June 7th. Contract extension and transfer window closes at this exact point. Five draft picks for all managers who are not maxed out on
-Squad size (30 riders minus any legacy signings)
-Budget (400 Gadrets)

Though any manager maxed out on any of these might be stolen from and then all of a sudden be eligible for their drafts.

Draft order is the reverse of standings on the morning of June 9th - ie. zKobalt would've gone first and EPO last if the draft was held today.

Between 19-00 on Friday night managers have 10 minutes to make their pick before we move on. Any skipped pick can be used by the manager whenever, but has to be used by the end of the weekend and can not be used for steals.

If we're not done with all picks by midnight Friday - we slowdraft (no 10 minute deadline) until 19:00 CET on Saturday where 10-minute deadline is reinstated. And then we go on until we are done on Saturday evening, which should be way before midnight.

This is all in line with previous summer drafts and hopefully pretty clear and consise :)

I agree with EPO that points should follow the logic that all races started before the 9th should count towards first half of the season.

Partykjeppen [Il Piccolo Gregari] Thursday 30.May 10:38, 2019
Posting full details tonight

What are the rules?

Francisco [K92-Team Neverland/GF Group] Tuesday 21.May 12:11, 2019
10th FC-manager overall - 10th FC-manager last 6 weeks
K92-Team Neverland
Press Release

On the behalf of K92's DS, Francisco, and Neverland's CEO P.Pan, we want to inform that SILVIO HERKLOTZ will no longer be part of this incredible fancy Team. We kept the confidence in this promising german rider until the limit but sadly his professional carreer is over and we can't continue with him on board.
We will keep him under radar and his reintegration can happen anytime since he return to competition even at Conti level.

In this first PR we also want to inform that K92 Team will ride under new colours in the season's second half.
Mr L.Luke will cease his direct partnership and will be part of Neverland's Executive Council.
The new associate will be disclosed right after DF draft.

zKobalt [FruitnOats] Tuesday 21.May 11:34, 2019
Fruitnoat lawyers have been working overtime given the contract status of their riders and will look to address contract matters with the commissioner shortly.

Francisco [K92-Team Neverland/GF Group] Tuesday 21.May 11:18, 2019
10th FC-manager overall - 10th FC-manager last 6 weeks
Now we're talking! :)

Hope your kids get well soon, Kjeppen!!!
It would have been better if your absence was related with glorious Ivan stage win in the far west... :)

Erythropoietin [Erythropoietin] Tuesday 21.May 10:04, 2019
24th FC-manager overall - 24th FC-manager last 6 weeks
Draft June 7th and 8th... Looking at the calendar, everything up to (and including) June 9th should then count for the first part of the season, so that one can't just sign the GC winner of la Mayenne before the final sprint stage.

05.06-09.06 2.HC Tour de Luxembourg
05.06-09.06 2.2 Tour de Serbia
06.06-09.06 2.1 Boucles de la Mayenne
06.06-09.06 2.NC Course de la Paix (U23)
07.06-09.06 2.1 Hammer Limburg
07.06-09.06 2.1 Tour of Bihor - Bellotto
09.06 1.2U Coppa della Pace
09.06-16.06 2.WT1 Critérium Dauphiné
09.06 1.1 Gran Premio di Lugano
09.06 1.2 Memorial van Coningsloo

The first stage of Dauphine would then count for part one of the season.

Partykjeppen [Il Piccolo Gregari] Tuesday 21.May 01:13, 2019

Did cirrhosis finally get to him? Or was it the gag order served by the management of Ivan Garcia over the fan fiction posted on the Darkweb? Or was it the disappointment over the collective points haul of Bazhkou, de Bie and Latour which the reason for Kjeppen's demise?

The rumours have been many, but the reason for my absence recently has been nothing more than kids with fever and hectic period at work. Have yet to watch a Giro stage :'''''''''''''''''''''( (I cry in pasta tonight).

Yet there are pressing matters to move forward with as highlighted by Francisco.

The window for transfers and contract extensions will open as soon as the Giro has been finished on June 2nd.

The mid-season draft will take place from 19:00 CET June 7th. As in January, picks will be skipped if not completed within 10 minutes. If we're not done by midnight, we'll slowdraft (ie. no time limit) until 19:00 CET on June 8th when the 10 minute dealine kicks back in.

I'll be back with the number of contract extensions and drafts which are allowed in this window soon. Now for some sleep inbetween coughing and crying for the kiddie rooms...

Tomas [Second Coming] Monday 20.May 18:26, 2019
Reckon Partykjeppen is on the task as we speak.

Time to start to think about this?..
I mean, we're in the middle of long boring stage races, "managing" speaking, ofc... :)
