WCS 2021
« on: January 24, 2021, 09:43:13 AM »

The final GC podium of the Vuelta 2020 ; 2nd Carapaz, 1st Roglič, and 3rd Carthy.

A new 2021 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 WCS subleague = cycling for fun
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 a code/password : by pm you can ask this password to one of the CFF participants who already joined.
You have to use the password just once, after that, in all other tours and races of this season you are automatically in.
Keep the password secret please, just mention it to a new CFF participant who wants to join.

It is the WCS subleague cycling for fun, so it is for CFF managers of the normal CFF game.
But it is no problem if there are a few exceptions, for example a friend of you outside the normal CFF game who wants to join.
In this case, please inform one of the administrators ( = Kalarratas and Vos ) about this.
Ex-CFF managers are also very welcome to join the WCS cycling for fun league. Perhaps a motivation to start again in CFF as well.

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.

It is up to you how often you want to join in the races and tours of 2021.
There are many CFF managers who join so now and then. Also some CFF managers join just the important races and tours.

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 !  :)

  Laporte wins the uphill sprint versus Bouhanni. Both sprinted so fast that the rest finished on 0:02"

CFF League stage 1 winner = Kalarratas  8)

Great season start of Kalarratas, he won 2 out of 3 races so far.
It is up to the other 8 CFF participants in this little French tour to prevent another victory of Kalarratas.
A very interesting tour with many top cyclists. And also interesting that all 9 CFF participants made very different picks.

A solo victory of Wellens in stage 3.

CFF League stage 3 winner = ophiuko  8)
The very first victory of new participant ophiuko, who is now the leader in the mountain- and youth classifications of the CFF League.
Kalarratas is still the GC leader with 2 more stages to go.

  Ganna wins solo stage 4. It seems GC leader Wellens will win this tour.

CFF League stage 4 winner = Kalarratas   8)
Kalarratas has still a big GC lead with one more stage to go, a short time trial of 10,7km ( first 8km flat and then 2,7km climbing ).

Do they give points for the GC? Usually what is better: trying to make points at stages or at GC?

Interesting question, and after several years playing I still don't know the answer.
I guess that it depends on the stages of a tour. 
In general my point of view on little tours ; first score many stage points, and after that score many GC points as well.

And in my opinion ; in this Etoile de B. stage points are more important, and in the next Tour de la Provence GC points are more important.
But I could be wrong about this.
Perhaps there is something in my long-version-pm-answer that can be usefull to you,
despite I play on gut feeling instead of an arithmatical approach.

Ganna wins stage 5, the time trial.
The GC victor is Wellens, mainly thanks to his solo victory in stage 3 ( see picture ). 2nd GC Kwiatkowski and 3rd GC Politt.

CFF League stage 5 winner = Cosminelul   8)

GC winner = Kalarratas   8)
Kalarratas wins also the sprint jersey.
Vos wins the mountain jersey.
ophiuko wins the youth jersey.
