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 ……….

Well, good news for the Dutch is they won the women’s race. AVV is unbelievable and picked the perfect moment to attack knowing that the composition of the group would mean hesitation over who was going to chase. The mens? Hoo-wee there’s going to be a lot of noise about WTF happened in that hotel. Will heads roll? The Lanterne Rouge podcast has a good bit on why the hotel’s location was completely wrong for Woolagong. That being said, how much of a monster is Remco? The Belgians got it right this time. Once RE went, look at the next… Read more »

Well, that will teach me not to write off van Vleuten. Didn’t think she’d manage to do that with her elbow injury. Some effort.

Well, Sthilzy took La Vuelta by a country mile from the pack in the Autobus. Chapeau.

Overall, CyclingMonk seems to be coasting in for the season but mathematically with the Worlds (M and F) looking like the usual lottery, then Il Lombardia, mathematically it is still open.

All subject to the usual protest – I think I picked up all the spelling vagaries into the scoring sheet……….

As a consequence the cancellation of the last 3 stages of the Tour of Britain following the passing of HM The Queen, the OTRL results for the Tour of Britain will also be cancelled.

Well, if they are prizes for this year’s OTR league I don’t have to be very concerned.

I missed out on the Femmes race completely. Lots of points on offer, leaving me further behind. On the bright side, pics closed when I was out riding through the Colorado Rockies for several days, no time to be in front of the computer screen. A fair trade-off in my mind.

In the Tour de France Femmes (La Petite Boucle? – Only on the basis of it being 8 days), we have a 3 way tie between Philplumb59, Sthilzy and Teocalli. Chapeaux.

Overall CyclingMonk maintains the lead but is he stalling after loosing some ground this week? Though there is a rumour that Teocalli may be suspended from the overall for a sticky bottle somewhere along the season. Video evidence from a mobile phone is being reviewed.

Picks open for La Vuelta on Friday 12th Aug.

In La Grande Boucle Haldy34 takes the win by a tyre from Chuckp. Chapeau.

Overall CyclingMonk maintains his lead, will he be able to match last years total at the end of the season of 207 by PhilPlumb59?

Well a small field for the OTROL Giro d’Italia Donne finished with a small bunch sprint with Philplumb59 and Wiscot making a dead heat in the lunge for the line.

Cycling Monk is looking unassailable for the overall as long as his wheels do not fall off!

Seems fair. You know Hinault’s only rival in the poll was Anquetil and he’d have voted for himself too. Overall, a pretty fair list. Can’t think of anyone really missing.

Well the autobus certainly came in on the Tour de Suisse but Chuckp just nudged a tyre ahead of the group on the line! Chapeau.

Can we collectively do better on the TdF. Will it be a close race this year – both here and in the real thing?!

Results are up for Criterium du Dauphine. Subject to protests as usual.

In the interim I seem to have got a new wheel and am back up to speed with the win. Collectively we did better – maybe on account of there being a firm favourite who actually finished! Bit of a headache for a couple of Delgado’s in the OTRL Peloton though.

Overall CyclingMonk is looking pretty nailed up for the season’s standings.

For some reason, this didn’t go through when I posted earlier this morning. Said “waiting for approval” and then just disappeared.

– I know I missed the deadline for the Dauphine. Been busy with packing up our house to move. If you’ll allow a late entry: 1 – ROGLIČ Primož, 2 – MAS Enric, 3 – GAUDU David, 4 – BARGUIL Warren, 5 – FROOME Chris

Merci beaucoup!

Well, in the Giro d’Italia DanCollins saves our collective blushes and sprints clear of the AutoBus for a clear win. Chapeau.

Overall saw little (no) change with the more or less massed peloton finish and so CyclingMonk maintains the overall lead.
