2021: Who Gets Restricted? How Many?

FSA DS small

What does a abide have to do to get some FS-ADS cure around here?

In that end-of-the-season FS-ADS thread that Chris wrote, he included this morsel 😛 TAGEND

….we are probably just a pair weeks away from Ursula referring Jens and me some early pricing charts for next year’s FSA DS.

To which my response is, “ow ow ow ow ow ow ow ow shit fucking ow ow.”

So I just wanted to share a little bit of my pain with you. Cause it is 2020 and how can I say I love you in 2020 better than good than paying and sharing aching?

What I’ve done so far has been focusing on who the inhibited and doubled limited equestrians might be and given how creepy 2020 was in the cycling world, you can use different sorts of logic in picking the expensive equestrians. Dangerously, I’ve come up with 10 different ways to pick the expensive chaps and I need to narrow down that to the one path before I move on to the rest of the riders. And you are gonna help me.

Most times there have been around 27 -3 0 riders who property in the restricted or doubled restricted areas. But if you go back a assortment of years as few as 20 or even 14 riders got called. So if you care to play I miss kinfolks to make a case on how many riders should be in the inhibited lists for 2021. You can name words or not. Explain your logic. I am genuinely interested. Truly.

A couple of caveats though:

The actual number of limited equestrians and who they actually will be is ultimately my decision. Knowing that, I ask if you do not get too invested in your theories so that if I don’t adopt children you get upset and stomp off. Remember that this is a game and I am just asking for your gumption and productivity. On Christmas day I will tell you how many equestrians will be in the curbed indices for you to guess. I recollect then it will be more fun then usual to guess which equestrians are actually limited. You will likewise not know exactly what premiums I peg the equestrians at until we open up the competition, hopefully in February. Some riders patently will be restricted. Roglic will be restricted. Alaphillippe will be restricted. So will Wout and MvdP and Pogacar. And that pimply-faced Belgian kid currently training in the south of Spain? Double curtailed up the wazoo. But once you start looking at what riders actually orchestrated this year you start visualize some quirky point totals. You’ll receive what I am talking about. For this year there were 26 restricted equestrians. In 2019, 27. In 2018, 30. In 2017, 30 again. Get back to 2013 you get 27 -3 0 curtailed equestrians. But 2012 and 2011 has only just been 14 inhibits. 2010 has only just been 21. You want to make a case for countless fewer than 30? Make it. See if you can persuade me. One final thing: esteem overheads. Unpopularity rebates. Example: Diego Ulissi aka the ex-serviceman equestrian who turned in the 10 th highest point total this year while a) being priced at 14 tops and b) being on exclusively 8 squads at that 14 point total. Normally the 10 th highest point rider in a rendered year would be restricted but this not a ordinary year. What to do with him? There’s a cluster of equestrians like that.

In case you forgot, this is what Ulissi looks like when he’s winning.

Or take Al Kristoff and Arny Demare. Demare- the 4th highest point total this year but like Ulissi priced at 14 stages and simply picked by 25 units , none of whom factored into the race for the best team of 2020. Kristoff who I priced at 28 stations due ot his seventh best point total the year before, but no one picked him and he only valued 655 items in a very weird year.

Below I have two inventories of riders to help you out. Patently you should go to the FS-ADS site to see all the riders. Have fun!

There could be other equestrians that I’ve missed( so far) that maybe place restrictions. What do you think?
