About CyclingOracle.com

CyclingOracle.com is created by 5 cycling-addicts who found each other in their shared passion for cycling. Tom Nederend (@TomNederend), Arjan Zoer (@ZoerCyclingStat), Daniël Herbers (@StatsOnCycling), Thomas Zwetsloot (@zwetmas) en Stef van Zon (@stefvanzon) invest a lot of their free time in making content for the website and developing the computer algorithm predicting professional cycling races.

Computer-model of CyclingOracle.com

Arjan Zoer is the mastermind behind the smart computer-algorithm. Arjan developed the model and is working on improvements of the model on a daily basis. We will not share the depths of the model publically, but can give some insight in how it works. The model is based on results of riders in the past 3 seasons in which more recent results have a larger impact on the outcome. The model runs for every male and female rider in all UCI-races. That’s a lot of data. The result of race, combined with the profile, quality of the startlist and the UCI-classification of the race, determines on which skills a rider gets ‘points’. Riders score points between 20 and 100 on 13 different skills (categories), being: spring, flat, mountain, hills, time-trial, ITT-long, ITT- short, prologue, cobbles, leadout, GC, one-day races and stage-races. In addition, a rider gets points for his current shape (good results in recent races).

Some examples:

  • A rider wins a bunch sprint in Tour de Rwanda. He gets points awarded for ‘flat’ and ‘sprint’, but these points will make less of a difference compared to a bunch sprint-victory in Tour de France given the UCI-classification of the race (2.1) and weak field of participants.
  • A rider wins a bunch sprint in Giro d’Italia and his teammates get rewarded points for ‘leadout. If teammates of a sprinter have a lot of leadout-points, the computer lifts the chances of a sprinter to win a flat race which is likely to result in a bunch sprint. Team-quality is part of the model.
  • A rider solos to victory in Ronde van Vlaanderen: the rider gets rewarded a mix of points on skills like ‘cobbles’, ‘hills’, ‘one-day races’ and ‘time-trial’.
  • A rider wins the sprint of a small-group at a summit-finish of Alpe d’Huez. He gets points for ‘mountain’, but also for ‘sprint’ and ‘stage-races’. Moreover, these points will weigh heavily on a rider’s shape or form in order to predict future results in the same race better.

All these skills will be used to predicted a cycling-race. Depending on the profile and field of participants, the computer predicts the most likely winner. The probability a certain rider will win the race is called ‘Expected Win’.
