Contest #4 - UCI Road World Cup [Cat. 2]

Post by emmea90 »

Image
Thanks to David Lappartient, UCI decided to introduced the Road World Cup back in a new format.

The Road World Cup will be a new end-season classic, around the world, of the duration of three months from November to January, in the same dates of the cyclocross season. Prize money, excitement and grant from Lappartient that would not be able to ride Worlds and Olympics otherwise made the riders declared excited to compete in the new competiton and wanting to fight for it.

What you will have to do is so to draw 10 classics meeting this requirements
- The classics are city-located (example: Round 1, Beijing) and they shall start and finish in the same city
- Circuits are not mandatory, but there should be extra passages on the finish line
- The 10-classic series shall have at least one race in North America, one race in South America and one race in Asia
- The series shall be done balanced in a way that allows different type of riders to compete for the GC (Gilbert, Viviani, Ackermann, Valverde, Alaphilippe, Roglic, Bernal, Quintana, Pogacar, Evenepoel etc), prizing the one with the most complete characteristics
- You have to define also the rules (use tour description)
- You have to consider the time period (so for example, you can't do a "stelvio classic" due to snow)
- No time trials classics
- Length of each classic shall be from 250 to 290 km.

Deadline is may 31, h 23.59

The editor doesn't seem to work in Southern and Northern America. How can I make races there and enter them in the Flamme Rouge layout? Anyway, how big must a city have to be to make a race there? Can a race start and finish from different places in the same cities? Can we have the finish in suburbs (for example, finish on Etna the Catania World Cup Race)?

Sorry for all the questions :mrgreen:

I can answer the first question. Make the course in a external editor. There is a link for RideWithGPS in the red box. When you finish the course, export it as .gpx and the import it into flamme rouge. Then you add intermediates.

That's means we're able to choose whatever rules we want do we try to stick to existant rules (if they already exist)?

Are we limited to use only the bigger, more important cities (example: Population>100000 Habitants) or can we use any town that has been given the city status, regardless of it's population or importance?

As mobile and an external editor don't work well together...I guess I'm out sadly. A shame, it sounded fun...

EDIT: Also an idea for Contest #5:
Women's Grand Tours
- UCI decide that their should also be 3 Women's Grand Tours a season, need to create the 2 to join a Giro Rosa
- For increased variety, these 2 new Grand Tours must be in countries which currently don't have one (so not France or Spain).
- Each Grand Tour should last 10 days, and be balanced in stage types.

Since the World Cup concept has been changed completely, and we can define the new rules, can the World Champion title be given to a nation rather than an individual cyclist?

Basically you had to define your own point scale for the 10 events, also with eventually Intermediate Sprints points.

The first warning cost the rider all the points he has win during the race. A second warning means an exclusion of every UCI Road World Tour races remaining.

** For lap races, each runner who takes a lap by the leader is forced to stop. He will be classified in the position he occupied at the time of the stop. Any points he had won during the race are nonetheless awarded to him.

** The UCI Road World Tour is open to the 18th World Tour Teams.

Here's the ten Classics in wich the riders will be fighting this year !



January, the 17th, 2021 : Brisbane Cycling Challenge (Australia)
(Brisbane - Brisbane)
281km, flat


Image

The first race of this year is a flat criterium. There will be sprinters on the road ! But don't forget the first points for moutain challenge ! Before entering the circuit, riders will have a short trip around Brisbane and will climb The Summit to win the first Dot Jersey.


February, the 7th, 2021 : Kuala Lumpur-Langkawi Race (Malaysia)
(Kuala Lumpur - Genting Highlands)
253km, High Moutain


Image

No Sprinters this time. Only the strongest can compete at the top of Genting Highlands. There will be sweat and blood and the road, the weakest will be of the competition.


March, the 7th, 2021 : Galilean Race (Israel)
(Tiberiade - Tiberiade)
267,5km, Medium Moutain


Image

This will be a hard race to pronostic. Despite the hard climbs (and the first 1st categorized climb), the thirty last kilometers are totatelly flat. Is that enough for the pack to come back on the attackers? Will the leaders let an outsider win to not risk everything ? We shall see.


March, the 28th, 2021 : Vuelta de Quito (Ecuador)
(Quito - Quito)
247km, High Moutain


Image

Cycling around the highest capital on earth is not an easy thing. This will certainly be the hardest step of the UCI Road World Cup. Only 1st categorized climb and a circuit to repeat three times, with an addition of an half lap to finish.


April, the 18th, 2021 : Japanese Criterium (Japan)
(Hiroshima - Hiroshima)
270km, Flat


Image

Sprinters, at your mark. The second criterium of this year. It will be very hard because of the length. However, there are no climb on this flat circuit. Will leaders be there?


May, the 9th, 2021 : La Route Vosgienne (France)
(Gerardmer - Gerardmer)
257km, Medium Moutain


Image

Another moutain day. In the Vosges, leaders and climbers will have several climb to beat themself. There is great chance that jerseys change of shoulders afer this one.


June, the 27th, 2021 : Cardiff's Classic (Wales)
(Cardiff - Cardiff)
262km, Hilly


Image

This one has a taste of spring belgian classic, an taste of Liege-Bastogne-Liège. But it's in Wales, in Cardiff, that riders will be going up those several short climbs. The Garth will be judge of peace and will certainly be a stepping stone to crown the winner.


August, the 15th, 2021 : Grand Prix de Montréal (Québec)
(Montréal - Montréal)
251km, Hilly


Image

The last criterium of the year. In Montréal, riders will have to turn around city's downtown thirteen times and climb Mont-Royal at each lap. This circuit could be a World Championship due to its difficulty.


September, the 12th, 2021 : La Comtoise (France)
(Lons-le-Saunier - Lons-le-Saunier)
284km, Medium Moutain


Image

France is the only country to host two step of the World Cup this year. This race could also be named Lons-le-Saunier - Besançon - Lons-le-Saunier as riders will go north to reach the regional capital and get back south to finish in Lons-le-Saunier with a one-lap circuit with some climbs. Leaders, sprinters or attackers, pick your favourite. Many riders can win this one.


September, the 26th, 2021 : Carpatians Roads (France)
(Zakopane - Zakopane)
268km, Medium Moutain


Image

The final step of this year's world cup will be standing in Poland by one of the hardest medium moutain stages of this edition. Let's hope that the season would have not be too hard for guys who still compete for the jerseys.

I don’t want to be that guy, but all races are in the winter from november to January. So your Gerardmer race would be near impossible as it’s probably snowing in there. And your race to the Genting highlands isn’t appliant to the rules as it doesn’t start and finish in the same place. I would change those 2 races if I were you because if you don’t those races may not be allowed and you can’t participate in this contest which would be a shame. Just trying to help.

Yup, I misread the rules. You are perfectly right. Thanks for the attention you put in my work and thanks for your encouraging words.

I don't want be a crybaby but that's seems too hard for me to rebuild the all of it (Jura, Wales, Vosges, Poland and even Quebec cannot be ride in winter...) I probably just read the rule as i wanted it to be. Too bad for me...

I'm out ;-)

Same as me. You don't understand the rules. Rules says that every races should take place between november and january.

Sorry, your work is fine, really.


Please ! That rule is stupid ! No cyclists would want to continue thei season between november and january ! Even if the weather is good in other countries or continent, they all use winter as recover ! Can we please change that rule?

I think the rules are fine, different cyclists can have a different kind of season this way, each with a different recovery time. This way, a sprinter may have its recovery time for example around the Vuelta or the Giro if he doesn't partecipate while a climber may do it in February/March or right after the Lombardia.

Aside from that, I just think it should be made clear how large a city has to be. Does Bathurst, Australia have the appeal for a WT race? I think it doesn't. I think a city must be either larger than 500k or be a national capital or a city that's an international touristic hotspot (either UNESCO recognized or just world famous).

Harrogate does not have any of the criteria you mentioned, nonetheless it hosted last years' World Road Championships. Neither do Aigle and Martigny. I think it's a matter of context, if the choice is justified and reasonable, I don't think there's a need to put a limit in the rules on what city can and cannot be in this World Cup. Then, obviously, you're free to judge a route negatively if you think choices are not appropriate.
