Giro d'Italia 2018 (Cat. 1, deadline on 4/5)

Post by emmea90 » 29/01/2018, 21:36

Contest #2 - Giro d'Italia 2018
The first GT contest (Cat. 1) of the year will, of course, be on Giro d'Italia. Why I'll open it so early? Because drawing a GT is not for all and i want to give you three months to do it (at least say thanks)

The contest will be about redrawing the 2018 Giro d'Italia. That will mainly means
- You have to keep the start from Israel. You can change the starting points and cities but you have to pass on West Jerusalem and you cannot go in Palestinian territories for safety reasons.
- You have to end it in Rome
- You cannot repeat finals or key parts of stages of 2017 real race
- You have to put a stage start or a stage finish in at least 15 different regions
- 2018 is 100 years after WWI end, so you have to remember it in at least two stages

Opposite from the other contests, you can have a maximum of TWO routes submitted for this one

The Giro should be balanced, offering a "Dumoulin" and a "Quintana" the same chances to compete for the maglia rosa.

The Deadline will be on 4/5, when the first rider of real Giro d'Italia will start his ITT

You must submit your routes in this topic submitting the link. As stated in general presentation, you can submit from 1 to 3 routes. You can use this topic also for asking the question - we can answer question about climb / road / finish praticability but we won't answer to anyone's questions in private, only in this topic.

Everyone who will present the route also posting in the topic profiles and descriptions in this topic will start the voting phase with 3 points bonus

Good luck anyone

-------------------

In Italian:

Il contest verte sul ridisegnare il Giro 2018 con queste condizioni

A) Mantenere la partenza da Israele, senza sconfinare in altri stati o territori palestinesi. Si possono cambiare le città ma bisogna passare da Gerusalemme
B) Bisogna finire a Roma
C) Non si possono ripetere finali o punti chiavi di tappe del Giro 2017
D) Bisogna inserire almeno una partenza o arrivo di tappa in 15 diverse regioni italiane
E) Bisogna inserire almeno due tappe a tema (o con punti che tocchino il tema) "100 anni dalla fine della prima guerra mondiale"

Si possono mandare fino a due percorsi per utente

Il percorso deve essere bilanciato tra cronoman-scalatori, permettendo di essere vinto sia da un Dumoulin che da un Quintana

Chiunque posti il percorso con profili e descrizioni nel topic avrà tre punti bonus per la presentazione

Yes. There are lines on google maps, so it's easy to stay in the Israel part.

L'arrivo a Messina è considerato un doppione del 2017 anche se diverso (il Giro 2018 arriva sull'Etna come il 2017)? So che non è obbligatorio passare dalla Sicilia ma ho un'idea di progetto quanto più simile possibile alla planimetria del Giro 2018 vero. La presentazione si può scrivere in italiano? :asd:

Upload your images to a hosting site (es. : postimage or imgbb) and paste the link in the Image tag

Yes, it's forbidden to repeat 2017 Key points.

Evaluation of that will be on the users while voting

Fucking faggot zizi It is possible to end a stage in Messina, even if Giro 2017 did the same? Let's consider that Giro 2018 will end up on the Etna whereas even Giro 2017 did so. It is possible to write the presentation in italian, considered that in any case no one will read it? :asd:

The real Giro d'Italia does't have the HC classification for the hardest climbs and choosing this option with the Giro graphic, the gpm icon is designed as Cima Coppi, but Cima Coppi is the highest climb and there is just one in the real Giro. Question: can we choose to insert the HC (Cima Coppi) icons for the toughest climbs or we must respect the Giro classification and choose between 4 categories (from 4 to 1) and use the Cima Coppi icon just for the highest? Thanks in advance.
