While I believe that cycling is indeed an undervalued sport here and offer you my sincerest compliments, I must ask:

1. What is your general experience with Cycling and with sports on NationStates? Have you simulated other events?

2. What's the deal with this strange format? Only two cyclists per country? Wouldn't it be more attractive if you emulated the UCI World Tour,for example? Where each team can send a varied number of athletes, depending on the level of the event? Why three numbers?

3. How do you plan to simulate this? How will you ensure you are not rigging the results? Will you guarantee bonuses for those who work best with roleplay? Or are you planning the absurdity of throwing us into a mindless writing spiral without even giving us a way to positively influence the athletes?

Thank you for your comments.

To your first point, I'm an amateur cyclist myself and have kept up with UCI for five years now, so I'm quite familiar with its workings. Under prior nations I've participated in about a dozen sports events here, and I've practiced scorinating imaginary entrants with xkoranate for practice at this.

To your second point, I thought it would be simpler for everyone if I didn't mimic UCI and went Olympic-style with national teams only. I'm totally fine with dropping the 2-cyclist limit though, that was rather arbitrary (edit: I've now removed the limit). The race numbers are meant to be a unique identifier for each cyclist that can carry over to future tournaments.

To your third point, I'll be using xkoranate's road cycling setting to scorinate. For every hundred words (this number can easily change) of RP I figured I'd add an extra point to or subtract a second from scorinated results, to incentivize roleplay. Once I get the Happenings (i.e. RP) thread up, much of this information will go there.
