CLASSICS PREDICTOR GAME: Race #13 Liege-Bastogne-Liege

All welcome to play

Liège-Bastogne-Liège is the 13th and final race of the Classics Predictor Game, similar in concept to our GT stage predictor game. There's no commitment to a season-long team of riders here. Instead, you pick 4 riders that you like for each spring classic, one race at a time. There's a season leaderboard for 13 spring cobbled & hilly classics, but you're also welcome to play for any standalone race.

********************************************

This is all you need to know to play

Pick 4 riders that you like for this race and post them in a comment below, the order doesn't matter. Riders score points down to 10th place. Less obvious riders are worth considering: if they get a decent top-10 result, they can score more points in this game than a big-name favorite.

Scoring rules

All 4 of your riders can score.

The top 10 finishers score points according to this basic scale from race winner down to 10th place:
100-60-50-40-30-25-20-15-10-5

However, if riders of all abilities scored the same, we'd all just be picking the big favorites all the time. So we multiply the scale above by a rider's payoff percentage based on the number of players that pick him. More picks, lower payoff.

If you're not familiar with this kind of scoring scheme from the Giro & TdF Stage Predictor games last year, just play along for a couple of races and it will soon make sense. All you need to do is pick the 4 riders that you like for the race. A good strategy might be to go for two big names and two outsiders that you fancy for a breakout result.
