  The first edition of the Patryk Drozdowski Trophy Cup has been a success as far as Nick and me are concerned, which means that, as promised, more Cups will be introduced!
  I designed most of these myself, but Llotyhy of Hog Bay CT and Stephan von Bismarck of Sasol Leeus are also responsible for one each. I will shortly introduce all of them to you here!
  Important to mention is also that some of these might start in Season 50, and most of them will start in Season 49. Nick will decide on that when he puts them into the game tomorrow, so you’ll all be informed soon.
  
  ColombiaCopa Salsa de Calí
  
  Division: 1
  Nation: Colombia
  Day 56-57
  Specialty: SP
  
  This Cup celebrates the vibrant nature (both literally and metaphorically) of Colombia, making it’s way through a region of incredible beauty and diversity.
  
  Stage 1: Cristo Rey - Buenaventura
  https://www.bikemap.net/en/r/4743838/
  Distance: 134km
  Profile: CL: 1 DH: 4 HL: 3 FR: 6 SP: 8 CB: 0 TQ: 4 TT: 0
  
  The first stage will go down from the mountains surrounding Calí towards the beach resort of Buenaventura, and will end in a royal sprint.
  
  Stage 2: Cali - Pereira
  https://www.bikemap.net/en/r/4743843/
  Distance: 230km
  Profile: CL: 4 DH: 1 HL: 7 FR: 6 SP: 7 CB: 0 TQ: 6 TT: 0
  
  This stage will start with a long and flat build up, but ends in the toughest climbing section of this cup, up towards Pereira. However, the stage ends on a very long final straight, meaning that riders will still need excellent sprinting capacities to excel.
  
  Stage 3: Cali - Cali (King’s stage)
  https://www.bikemap.net/en/r/4743850/
  Distance: 192km
  Profile: CL: 0 DH: 1 HL: 2 FR: 4 SP: 7 CB: 0 TQ: 8 TT:0
  
  The final stage, which is also the King’s stage, challenges the rider in a big lap full of twists and turns around the city of Calí itself. The final 10 kilometers are going to be full of hazardous corners in the city center of Calí, so only the most technically gifted riders will be able to compete for top spot.
  
  
  Italy Coppa della Famiglia del Don
  
  Division: 2
  Nations: Italy, Netherlands, Norway
  Day 86,87,88
  Specialty: HL (but a bit of almost everything)
  
  I feel a bit awkward presenting a race in honour of myself. Nah, who am I kidding, it’s an absolute pleasure. :)
  But this Cup is more than just a Don show. It is also the first one out of these new cups that will take place in three different countries!
  I sometimes like to say that I am Dutch by birth, Norwegian in my dreams, and Italian in my heart. This resulted in this very strange collection of nations to be organizing a Cup together. But as we all know, with the right connections everything can be made possible. And to make it at least a little bit realistic, this Cup will take 3 days instead of 2.
  
  Stage 1: Strade d'Arezzo
  https://www.bikemap.net/en/r/4736685/
  Distance: 184km
  Profile: CL: 4 DH:5 HL: 7 FR: 2 SP: 3 CB: 5 TQ: 5 TT: 0
  
  The first stage is a Strade Bianche look-alike. Tuscany contains the headquarters of Schiavi di Don, so there is more than just the famous white gravel roads to watch out for. The beautiful city of Arezzo plays host to both start and finish of this stage, with the finish being in front of the city’s fortress, which has one of the best views I ever saw in real life.
  
  Stage 2: Ede - Apeldoorn
  https://www.bikemap.net/en/r/4736695/
  Distance: 126km
  Profile: CL: 0 DH: 1 HL: 3 FR: 5 SP: 7 CB: 1 TQ: 6 TT: 0
  
  A stage in the Netherlands can only be a sprint race, but I am lucky enough to live in one of the two areas that actually has some hills, so the stage won’t be completely boring. Also, the nature is surprisingly nice, for Dutch standards. The route leads the riders from the city where I lived last year, to the city where I was born, grew up, and still live when I’m not in Norway.
  
  Stage 3: Fantoft - Fløyen (King’s stage)
  https://www.bikemap.net/en/r/4736718/
  Distance: 107km
  Profile: CL: 6 DH: 4 HL: 6 FR: 2 SP: 0 CB: 1 TQ: 5 TT: 0
  
  The final stage takes us to Norway. The beautiful city of Bergen was host to the most special 4 months of my life so far, and even though it already has way too many races in OCM already, I had to add one more. This race is a mixture of all the rides I did myself. Every kilometer of this race I have done myself, just not all at once. ;)
  It starts at the International Student hub Fantoft, and immediately starts twisting and turning around the city, and across the steep but short hills that you can find all over it. After a loop south towards the neighbourhood of Fana, and a lap through Fyllingsdalen, the race will end with the ascent of the famous Mount Fløyen. It’s pretty steep.
  
  BoliviaCopa de la Historia de los Andes
  
  Division: 3
  Nations: Peru, Bolivia
  Day 5-6
  Specialization: CL/DH/ODD
  
  This Cup was designed by Llotyhy, so I’ll leave it to him to explain it further in the comments. He should have bikemap links of the stages as well. It is a celebration of the incredible culture of the high Andes, and will visit two countries, starting in Peru, and ending in Bolivia.
  
  Stage 1: Cuzco - Qusqu Qhawarina
  Distance: 173km
  Profile: CL: 8 DH: 3 HL: 4 FR: 3 SP: 1 CB: 6 TQ: 3 TT: 0
  
  Stage 2: Lago Titicaca - La Paz
  Distance: 135km
  Profile: CL: 3 DH: 7 HL: 4 FR: 6 SP: 4 CB: 1 TQ: 5 TT: 0
  
  Stage 3: Macha - Cerro Rico de Potosí (King’s stage)
  Distance: 143km
  Profile: CL: 5 DH: 5 HL: 6 FR: 1 SP: 2 CB: 0 TQ: 2 TT: 0
  
  SenegalLa Coupe de la Soif Éternelle
  
  Division: 4
  Nations: Mali, Niger, Senegal
  Day 8-9
  Specialization: CB
  
  Inspired by the famous Dakar rally, this Cup will take the most out of its participants of any of them. They will have to survive two desert stages (and some very improbable transports in between) to end up in the paradise city that is Dakar for a final short TT on a beach.
  
  
  Stage 1: Parmi les Camps Touaregs (King’s stage)
  https://www.bikemap.net/en/r/4741557/
  Distance: 144km
  Profile: CL: 0 DH: 1 HL: 1 FR: 6 SP: 5 CB: 8 TQ: 7 TT: 0
  
  Contrary to tradition, this Cup starts with it’s King’s stage, an incredibly tough race taking place almost entirely on the sandy roads surrounding Agadez in Niger, the old capital of the Touareg nomadic people.
  
  Stage 2: Merveilles de Tombouctou
  https://www.bikemap.net/en/r/4741567/
  Distance: 126km
  Profile: CL: 0 DH: 0 HL: 0 FR: 8 SP: 6 CB: 6 TQ: 6 TT: 0
  
  Tombouctou in Mali is host to one of the most astonishing pieces of ancient architecture, the Great Mosque, and the surrounding city center, which as a whole is a UNESCO world heritage site. Luckily for the riders, there also is a paved road leading towards it, which means that they won’t have to ride on the dirt all the time. Still, there are plenty of challenging stretches, and the wind might also play a big role out in the wide open desert.
  
  Stage 3: Les Plages des Dakar
  https://www.bikemap.net/en/r/4741572/
  Distance: 16km
  Profile: CL: 0 DH: 0 HL: 0 FR: 8 SP: 6 CB: 8 TQ: 1 TT: 6
  
  The final stage is a very short TT alongside the beautiful beach of Dakar, Senegal. The road is not paved, which means that riders will still need excellent cobbling skills to do well here. It should guarantee a spectacular finish to the Cup!
  
  UzbekistanTian-Shen Stone City Cup
  
  Division: 5
  Nations: Uzbekistan, and a little piece of Kazakhstan
  Day 71,72
  Specialization: DH/SP/ODD
  
  This Cup was designed by Stephan von Bismarck, so I’ll leave it to him to explain it further.
  It is a cup of high altitudes and extreme profiles. Truly fitting of Central Asia.
  
  Stage 1: Atakent (Kazakhstan) - Toshkent
  Distance: 223km
  Profile: CL: 1 DH: 0 HL: 2 FR: 7 SP: 6 CB: 0 TQ: 3 TT: 0
  
  Stage 2: Toshkent - Toshkent
  Distance: 179km
  Profile: CL: 5 DH: 6 HL: 4 FR: 6 SP: 6 CB: 0 TQ: 7 TT: 0
  
  Stage 3: Chirchiq - Qibray (King’s stage)
  Distance: 188km
  Profile: CL: 6 DH: 7 HL: 6 FR: 3 SP: 6 CB: 0 TQ: 4 TT: 0
  
  Czech RepublicCeskoslovensky Pohár
  
  Division: 6
  Nations: Czech Republic, Slovakia
  Day 26, 27
  Specialization: HL
  
  First of all, apologies to any Czech or Slovakian people that feel insulted for either the reference to their joint past, or the failure to use the correct spelling. But the game doesn’t accept your special characters, so not much I can do about it. ;)
  This Cup will provide a battle in the hills in the south of the Czech Republic, before going to Slovakia for a final TT. I do hope that I balanced the profiles enough to not make this an Essex/Cymru version 2 where TT’ers end up winning most of the time though.
  
  Stage 1: Ceske Budejovice - Brno (King’s stage)
  https://www.bikemap.net/en/r/4744380/
  Distance: 195km
  Profile: CL: 4 DH: 4 HL: 8 FR: 2 SP: 1 CB: 1 TQ: 4 TT: 0
  
  The Cup starts with it’s most difficult stage, on a day where almost no part of the race will be flat. The stage ends at the Fortress/Castle of Brno, on a slightly cobbled climb, which should provide a spectacular finish.
  
  Stage 2: Brno - Trnava
  https://www.bikemap.net/en/r/4744381/
  Distance: 151km
  Profile: CL: 3 DH: 3 HL: 7 FR: 5 SP: 6 CB: 0 TQ: 1 TT: 0
  
  This stage takes us from the Czech Republic into Slovakia. While many hills have to be climbed in the middle section of the race, sprinters that survive might have a change on the flat final kilometers. A straight line into Trnava will decide who takes the stage victory.
  
  Name: Bratislava TT
  https://www.bikemap.net/en/r/4744388/
  Distance: 37km
  Profile: CL: 1 DH: 2 HL: 4 FR: 4 SP: 0 CB: 1 TQ: 6 TT: 7
  
  Bratislava has been the city that surprised me the most out of all I’ve visited so far. It has a really endearing combination of a pretty old city center and some rough ‘soviet-era’ architecture. This TT is meant to take the riders past all the highlights, while also presenting a challenge with some climbing action to be done. Which should hopefully be enough to not make this an Essex/Cymru type of Cup. Fingers crossed. (And yes, I really needed to make this a TT :p)
  
  RomaniaCup of the Four Rivers
  
  Division: 7
  Nations: Hungary, Romania, Serbia
  Day 66,67
  Specialization: SP
  
  This Cup will highlight one of the lesser known cultural regions of Europe, the Danube-Cris-Mures-Tisa Euroregion. Every stage ends and finishes on a bridge across (if possible) or next to one of these four rivers. The stage names will the names of these rivers in the language of the country where the race starts/finishes.
  
  Stage 1: Duna - Körös
  https://www.bikemap.net/en/r/4744343/
  Distance: 172km
  Profile: CL: 0 DH: 0 HL: 0 FR: 7 SP: 8 CB: 0 TQ: 3 TT: 0
  
  The opening of the Cup will take place entirely within Hungary, and is by far the flattest and most straightforward out of the three. This is the dream of every pure sprinter.
  
  Stage 2: Tisza - Mures (King’s stage)
  https://www.bikemap.net/en/r/4744356/
  Distance: 143km
  Profile: CL: 0 DH: 0 HL: 0 FR: 6 SP: 7 CB: 0 TQ: 8 TT: 0
  
  Stage 2 will start in Hungary and cross the border to Romania, where the hidden gem that is the city center of Mures will provide for an incredibly technical finish to the race. It is also the King’s stage of this race, because the Romanian authorities paid me more.
  
  Stage 3: Tisa - Dunare
  https://www.bikemap.net/en/r/4744352/
  Distance: 190km
  Profile: CL: 1 DH: 3 HL: 4 FR: 5 SP: 7 CB: 1 TQ: 4 TT: 0
  
  To conclude the Cup, there will be some hills, as we start in Serbia end up back at the Danube, on the Romanian side, for a grand finale. Will the sprinters survive the hills, or will hill specialists take stage victory?
  
  SwedenDesign av Smäland Cup
  
  Division: 8
  Nation: Sweden
  Day 45,46
  Specialization: SP
  
  Division 8 will get its first multiple stage race, and (arguably) the home of Scandinavian Design will play host to it. I must admit that most of the route also resembles one of my most enjoyable summer holidays. But of course that is merely a coincidence.
  
  Stage 1: Växjö - Lessebo
  https://www.bikemap.net/en/r/4744316/
  Distance: 50km
  Profile: CL: 0 DH: 0 HL: 1 FR: 7 SP: 5 CB: 3 TQ: 6 TT: 0
  
  This stage was absolutely not meant to be a TT at first. How dare you even suggest that. In the end I decided it would be better to have a short but sweet flat stage, with a very technical (and probably impossible) finish towards a spot were I had a very pleasant night camping. Also, Lessebo has one of the biggest paper mills in Europe.
  
  Stage 2: Alvesta - Jönköping
  https://www.bikemap.net/en/r/4744327/
  Distance: 150km
  Profile: CL: 0 DH: 3 HL: 2 FR: 5 SP: 7 CB: 0 TQ: 6 TT: 0
  
  Leading towards the famous Vättern lake, this route will mostly be flat, but the sudden descent into the city center of Jönköping makes it a tricky stage for a lot of riders. More than just pure sprinting power is needed to do well here.
  
  Stage 3: Nässjö - Eksjö (King’s stage)
  https://www.bikemap.net/en/r/4744333/
  Distance: 186km
  Profile: CL: 1 DH: 1 HL: 4 FR: 4 SP: 6 CB: 3 TQ: 7 TT: 0
  
  A long and slightly hilly stage to finish off the Cup, leading towards the very cute village of Eksjö. It has one of the oldest wooden city centers in Sweden. Also a pretty decent lake for learning how to swim in. Not that the riders will be bothered with swimming, because an off road lap before the final kilometers will keep them sharp until the very end.
  
  
  That must be the longest announcement post ever, but I hope you all enjoy the cups as much as I (and hopefully Llotyhy and Stephan) did making them!
  
  Update:
  
   This will be the new points distribution per stage from now on.
  
   1. 100 pts (105 in King's)
   2. 90
   3. 85
   etc. down in steps of 5 until
   10. 50
   11. 47
   down in steps of 3 until
   16. 32
   17. 30
   down in steps of 2 until
   31. 2
  
   So the top-31 will score points.

  Stage 1: Cuzco - Qusqu Qhawarina
  https://www.bikemap.net/en/r/4742259/
  Distance: 173km
  Profile: CL: 8 DH: 3 HL: 4 FR: 3 SP: 1 CB: 6 TQ: 3 TT: 0
  
  The first stage of the Cup starts at the capital of the Inca civilization. Still a remarkable city to visit and the start of the Inca trail, the mountain trek to Machu Picchu, which was by far the most beautiful thing I've ever seen in my life. After about 115km, in the city of Sicuani, the road starts climbing in earnest, starting from 3600m above sea level already. The top is at 4885m, which is absolutely ridiculously high and glorious.
  
  
  Stage 2: Lago Titicaca - La Paz
  https://www.bikemap.net/en/r/4742268/
  Distance: 135km
  Profile: CL: 3 DH: 7 HL: 4 FR: 6 SP: 4 CB: 1 TQ: 5 TT: 0
  
  Stage 2 starts on the banks of the highest navigable lake in the world, Lago Titicaca, in Bolivia. This mostly flat stage doesn't get very difficult until the last 8 kilometers, where the road plunges with frightening steepness into the de facto national capital of modern day Bolivia, La Paz.
  
  
  Stage 3: Macha - Cerro Rico de Potosí (King’s stage)
  https://www.bikemap.net/en/r/4743417/
  Distance: 143km
  Profile: CL: 5 DH: 5 HL: 6 FR: 1 SP: 2 CB: 0 TQ: 2 TT: 0
  
  Stage 3 starts much further south, closer to the constitutional capital of Bolivia, Sucre and is quite tough because of the hilly character that's completely situated above 3300m. The stage finishes on the slopes of Cerro Rico de Potosí, historically the most important mountain in the world and probably the most important place in the world entirely. Did you know that historians estimate that at one point over two thirds of the entire supply of silver in the world originated in the mines of Potosí?
  
  
  I have no idea what kind of rider will win this cup, but I can't wait to find out. Hope you guys enjoy it!

  Btw, some of you might ask why these nations were chosen.
  For my cups, it was one of two reasons (apart from my 'own' cup):
  
  - The nation did not have any races at all yet and fitted an exciting theme (Niger, Mali, Senegal)
  - The list of nations with the biggest amount of managers playing that Nick gave me. Those that did not already have a Tour or a Classic were given a cup. (Colombia, Czech Rep., Slovakia, Hungary, Romania, (Serbia), Sweden)

  All the new cups have now been added to the game.
  
  There will most likely be trophies for each of the cups in the future, so get ready to fight for the overall win!
  
  I hope you will enjoy these new additions.
  
  Also a big thanks to the community for the contributions!

  Great job, guys. :) But I would like to request a little adjustment in the name of the cup that runs in Czech rep. and Slovakia. Since we have been separate for some time now, and many joint ventures are spelled separately (for example Cesko Slovensko ma talent) or with " - " , the cup can be named Cesko Slovensky Pohar or better Cesko-Slovensky Pohar. Thank you!

  Yeah, the div3 cup will be the only one starting in Season 50. The system doesn't allow new races to be open for sign up if they are created within the sign up deadline.

  The flag is not missing Christian, it is a new type of flag, which means you have to refresh your browser to see it. And no, it's not a joke. ;)

  First of all - great news and good work.
  
  Second - I have a comment on the stage below:
  
  Its current description says: Stage 2 will start in Hungary and cross the border to Romania, where the hidden gem that is the city center of Mures will provide for an incredibly technical finish to the race. It is also the King’s stage of this race, because the Romanian authorities paid me more.
  
  There is no Mures city, the city's correct name is Târgu Mures. Also Tisa (a river) as a starting point for a stage is not exactly clear. Maybe I am a bit obsessive about these things, but if you want I can come up with a full itinerary.
  
  Edit: checked the bikemap itinerary proposed, ok, fine, you may say the city center of Arad on the banks of Mures river to be more correct.

  You are 100% right of course. I just completely forgot my own route. XD
  The names of the start and finish per race are rivers all the time, which is why I mixed up the city name here.

  For some reason I don't get messages about new posts in this thread, so I found out about change of name to Cesko-Slovensky Pohar only today, so I would like say big thank you, and also the trophy looks great. :)

  pretty niche question here but there's a chance someone may know the answer
  
  Do Cup stages increase RS. I have seen in tours that it varies but was wondering what the case is in cups? Trying to work out if I will have time to recharge and then trigger a rider in a tight deadline

  Hi.
  
  Regarding Elio Elio’s post
  I raced Copa de la Historia de los Andes with minimal RS increase or close to none I would say.
  It would be good to know for sure.

  RS should be connected with DP drop, but unfortunately I don't know the exact numbers either, only the DP drop. And it might indeed not be enough DP drop to gain RS.

  I would guess it is the same as in tours. Manual says (correctly in this case): "The same goes for the race shape that during tours increases from 0 to 2 per stage. Each stage has its own discipline loss where the minimum is 1. It may be an advantage to let your riders save energy on certain stages by riding as practise."

  No RS increase in Don Cup.
  It's what we see too often. New features are great but they are poorly implemented and the list of bugs gets longer
  
  In this particular example:
  
  - No RS gain
  - No information about Cup points distribution on the race pages
  - There is no YC, but the best U25 rider still gets a trophy
  
  Prefer to have some bugs fixed instead of new features.

  Edit: caught myself talking nonsense, I'll leave my final sentence here. :P
  
  That being said, I do have a to do list for Nick, and almost everything on it is a bug fix. So I fully agree that bugs should be prioritized over new stuff.
