OTR League

The On The Rivet League is open to registered members.  It is a fantasy league of World Tour events (Men and Women).  The OTR League will start with the Spring Classics and end with the Tour of the Falling Leaves (Giro de Lombardia).

Events will be scored 12, 9, 6, 4, 3 for correct picks in the first 5 places.  A pick in the first 5 but not in the right place will score 1.  No substitutions will be allowed once an event starts.

To change your picks simply submit a new set and we will pick up your latest set.  Pick close at 00:00 UK time on the day of the event start.

End of season prizes pictured on the right – they may change if I find anything more fun on my travels through the season.  There may also be a few spot prizes.

CONFIRMED OTRL 2021 1st, 2nd and 3rd Place Prize ……….

Thanks to Teocalli for the time and effort it takes to put this on. Cycling is such a great sport to watch and participate in. If you look back on my past performance in this competition it has been miserable so it was fun to finally get some picks correct.Looking forward to next season.

Thanks to Teocalli for all his hard work in making for a fun OTR season. We’d all watch these races anyway, but the OTR adds a little frisson of excitement to the proceedings.
This are a bit quieter at work for me so I’ll try and throw together some thoughts on stuff. I think I might have a couple on the boil.

Final results for the season are (finally) in! Sthilzy and Teocalli share the win in Il Lomabrdi, both just nudging out of the collective Autobus. Teocalli takes a low key win in the Women’s Tour. Overall Philplumb59 has stormed the season, chapeau. Second is a tie between Wiscot and Teocalli. Third is Haldy34. Chapeau to all. I’ll be in touch via email to confirm addresses for the prizes of a Kwaremont Beer Glass to the top 3. Many thanks to everyone for your support through the season. I’ll try to think up some articles to keep things ticking over through… Read more »

I think the first year we looked like having a close finish “the committee” (me) said it would be on count back of win flags – in which case Wiscot takes second. Also, when it come to podium prizes Teocalli is disqualified for alleged illegal drafting of the team car or some such similar device.

As the dust from the weekend settles……..sorry…….as the mud from the weekend flows away. What a weekend. Well, 20 years wait for a wet Paris Roubaix and then it delivered a wet one with a vengeance! Chapeaux to every rider.

Overall DanCollins and Haldy34 share the cleanest jerseys in the men’s even and Philplumb59 has a pristine jersey in the femmes. Chapeaux.

In the Season Standings Philplumb59 maintains a firm grip on his crystal ball and is now cruising to a season win.

Similar question to . I previously had 131 points. I got 3 points for women’s Paris-Roubaix. 131 + 3 = 134. I’m showing only 132 points. Not that it makes a difference in the standings, but math is math FFS!

If Roglic had crashed out like he did TdF, PhilPlumb59 would’ve still won with a single point since he picked Mas in the top 5. 🙂

Interesting start to the Vuelta! Roglic on form. Nice to see Taaramae get red as that kind of win/publicity is incredibly important for smaller teams like Inter Marche. And then Jakobsen getting a sprint win! The jitters he has overcome to get back in the mix for sprints were immense. And that was a super fast sprint today. Chapeau Fabio!

Plenty to play for though!

Van Aert to win the Tour of Britain.

So Froome was identified by French TV as a “randonneur.” Ouch.

I know he’s not been on top form, but . . .
