Back from a hiatus (vacation) I wanted to post a quick update on my project
Rosters for Le Tour have been announced and I have been hard at work collecting datas. I updated my GitHub with a scraping script for team roster data from ProCyclingStats. I finally have all the stats of interest in my database from 2013 and 2014.
If you want to play along you can create your own Fantasy Tour de France team. Besides trying to predict the winner I may use the model to help pick my team, assuming its ready before registration closes.
Now that all the team and individual data is populated the next step is denormalizing for analysis. Stay tuned!
