|2. Team Selection
Once you are registered and received a password, you can

list of riders. From that list you can select the riders for your team,

Each selection must consist of exactly 15 (different!) riders. An
incomplete selection is not allowed. The order in which you select your
team is not important. When selecting your team, you may not exceed your
budget of 6.000 CQ.
- If you want to choose a rider who is not on the selection
list, you can send a request to add that rider to the list (button "request new
- It is the explicit responsability of the participant to check the
correct registration of his/her team and to report possible faults.
- Do NOT wait until the utter registration deadline to send in a complete
team! Server problems are always possible.
|Chicabike consists of 4 periods (see our calendar).
Periods 2 to 4
are preceded by a short transfer period.
During each transfer period you can pick maximum 3 riders from your
team and change them for as many new riders (as your selection always
has to consist of 15 riders). But, obviously, the budgetary
restriction, which is summarised as follows, remains:
Rest Budget = Amount of CQ-points of
your working budget you did not use at your last transfer period (or at
Working Budget = Rest budget of the last period + The new (!) CQ-points
of the riders you are willing to throw out of your team.
The sum of the CQ-values of the new riders may not exceed the working
At your registration the total amount of CQ-points of your initial
selection of 15 riders = 5850 points. Because your working
budget was 6000 points, your rest budget at the beginning of the
competition will be 150 points.
When you then, during the first transfer periode, want to change
Johansson (e.g. 1600 points on the new
CQ-list) and Bronzini (e.g. 900 points), your
working budget will be 150+1600+900=2650 points. Thus, the total
amount of CQ-points of your 2 new riders has to be less than
2650. When you pick, for example, Vos (e.g. 1750 points) and
Longo Borghini (e.g. 850 points), your new rest budget will be 2650-1750-850=50 points.
This rest budget can be used during the
next transfer period (but it will not be added to your
To enter your transfers you have to log in and
go to "Tranferperiod X ". On the left side you will see
your selection, on the right side the complete list of riders. Left, you

as you want until the end of the transfer period. Each time you save your selection, you will receive a

to the list (button "request new

|4. Scoring Points
Once you registered a team, your riders can start scoring
points for you. They can only do that in the races
on our calendar.
The chicabike-points in those races are equal to the
corresponding CQ-points. Read more about the CQ-points on
The Chica-rule of 8!
Only the 8 best scoring riders of each selection can score
points, both in one day races as in stage races. As from the 9th rider in a selection who earns
in that race, ZERO chicabike-points are awarded for that rider in that particular
The Chica-reference & corrections
- The source for the Chicabike results is
- If a result is corrected, this will be taken into account for the
Chicabike competition when the correction is made within 5
days after the end of the race (a race held on February 28th will not be
corrected after March 5th 23.59 p.m.). E.g. when a rider is
crossed out from a result after one month, because of a positive doping
control, then the concerning result will not be corrected.
- The rule above also applies for incomplete results. On the basis
of an incomplete result a provisional result can be calculated. If,
after 5 days, still no complete result is available, this result is
- Should a race (or a stage) be cancelled (for any reason
then no points will be awarded for this race.
- Result per race: After every race a classification of all chicabike players
will be made. In case of an ex-aequo (two or more
participants score the same amount of points) the players will be
classified in decreasing order of rest budget. If the rest
budget is equal as well, the backnumber is decisive (in rising
order). In a stage race there will be a classification per stage,
one for the final ranking and a total classification (stages and final
- Ranking = General classification: The
most important ranking, determined by the sum of all points scored in
Chicabike races. The winner of Chicabike is the participant who scored the
most points at the end of October, after the Tour of Guangxi Women's WorldTour.
