<> Fantasy Cycling Teams - 2018 <>

* As has become our custom, Lisa & I will be adding to our interest in this year's professional cycling season by following the fortunes of our own fantasy cycling teams. We've been doing this since 1997. We select our teams on the basis of each rider "costing" his total UCI ranking points earned last season divided by ten and rounded to the nearest five, with a minimum cost of twenty points and a maximum of 200.  We allow each team equal points on this basis, with nine riders to be selected. No more than two riders in each team can be selected from the same real life trade team.  Throughout the season we score our riders performances in all the major races according to the points system adapted from one used by Roger Hughes in his Fantasy Cycling League. The tables below summarise the fortunes of our teams throughout the season.


* For this season's line-up, Lisa makes two changes to her Ready Steady Riders: Hugh Carthy and the retired Alberto Contador are replaced by Fernando Gaviria and Greg van Avermaet.

* Steve retains the same line-up as last year for his Nightowlers team.

* For a blow-by-blow account of our riders' scoring rides, see the accompanying blog.

* See below for Ready Steady Riders' results.
