    A few useful points from one of our smaller races, and even some movement on the podium

    Scrool07 is the uniquely wise/lucky manager to have included Wallays (this one, anyway: Jancouver has his younger brother)

    Points earned today
    Picking the day's winner was not enough to be top scorer on the day, as Joelsim had not only Theuns and Van Kiersbulck, but also Bystrom (a unique pick).  Los Brolin paired Theuns with another unique pick, Benoot, and Not My Circus also beat the remaining Theuns teams by including Tsatevitch and Jans.

    New standings
    No points today for DJW, who like Geraint Thomas on the Poggio, had momentarily looked like his lead might be decisive (or at least enough so to get a Eurosport commentator excited), and Not My Circus is now hot on his heels, and up one place.  Asdfgh101 and Rote Laterne each take a substantial Theuns-powered leap, to 3rd and 4th respectively, while Alykaptan slips from 2nd to 5th, and Karaev usurps Oliveira farther down the top ten.  The days top scorers move up by 15 and 14 places, but not yet to occupy prominent positions, while third on the day puts some distance between Los Brolin and his former last place.

    It was dubious as to whether this would merit inclusion: it won't have made much difference either way by the end of the game.

    The one notable thing was the continued good value of Felline as a pick: at present he is outscored only by Stybar (among selected riders)

    7th, Felline, 24 points for 3 teams (DJW, our leader, Italian Gigolo who moves up 1 place, and Scrool07, who moves up three positions)
    15th, Konrad, 6 points for Los Brolin (no change in rank)
    18th, El Fares, 5 points for Oliveira (no change in position)

    That's all: lots more points due tomorrow in Harelbeke

    For many, the main significance of today was not the points won, but the loss of chances in the weeks ahead.

    But first, let's deal with the positive side of things.  We have some popular riders among the high scorers
    Scoring riders
    Position name  points no of teams
    2   STYBAR Zdenek   132   17
    5   VANMARCKE Sep   86   17

    27   VANDENBERGH Stijn   9   17
    We also had, between us, named 29 of the 5 point finishers, including STANNARD Ian, VANDENBERGH Stijn, HAUSSLER Heinrich, GAUDIN Damien, VANSUMMEREN Johan, PAOLINI Luca and DEVENYNS Dries, who were each named on more than ten teams.


    Points earned today
    Despite not picking his near-namesake (no-one else had the day's winner either), Geraint Too Fast is a fitting top scorer for the day, by quite a margin.  10 or the 12 riders in his team scored, and the four top ten finishers that made it into our teams all made it into his.
    Asdfgh101 lacked Vanmarcke, but had three of those four top ten men, and so managed second above those who combined Stybar and Vanmarcke (Del1962, Nepetalactone, JosephD and LightBing). Madrazo also had three of those 4 big scorers, but the one he missed was Stybar.

    New standings

    DJW had a good top ten position today, and holds onto his lead, but only by a single point, and asdfgh101 is the only other team within 100 points.  Despite the large number of points won today, most of the highest scorers today were already high placed (not least because the Stybar-Vanmarcke combo was also the key to top points in Strade Bianchi) and so there were not huge positional changes.  Akuryo, Amis Velo, Joseph D and Jancouver, with jumps of 12, 11 and 8 are the biggest risers.  Not My Circus suffers her second spectacular fall from 2nd, this time to 10th, and Karaev drops back out of the top ten, replaced by Nepatalactone.

    Gent-Wevelgem

    A great afternoon's entertainment to watch, but will it have been as breathtaking in its effect on our little game?

    Scoring riders
    Some fairly popular riders getting good points, but no-one behind the Krisstof/Sagan group bothered finishing (and in those conditions, I wouldn't balme them), so there are very few 5 pointers today.

    Of the 12 teams that selected Paolini, who is already sure of being one of the best percentage returns in the game, six combined him with Vandenbergh: Akuryo, Alykaptan, DJW, GP Blanco, Not My Circus, and Tom-Jelte.  However, that pairing was not enough to prevent a second successive top score from Geraint Too Fast, who has Paolini, Vanmarcke, Roelandts and Oss.  Honorable mention also to Madrazo, who had 4 of the 8 riders ahead of the peloton, but missed Paolini.

    Standings
    Long term leader DJW by no means had a bad result today, but not good enough to hold off Geraint, who has had a week even better than that of his namesake.  Asdfgh101 was one of the more successful non-Paolini teams, so is able to hold on to his podium position, while Search, GP Blanco and Tom-Jelte gatecrash the top ten, evicting Del1962, LightBing and Nepetalactone. Farther down the table, Bathuba and Comodoro have double digit place rises.

    Ronde van Vlaanderen

    Scoring riders
    The highest finisher to have been selected for our game is Theijs Benoot, a unique, and very wise, pick by Los Brolin.  You might or might not believe me when I say that he was a very late removal from my shortlist.  However, Brolin selected none of the other top ten riders, Boom, Roelandts and Stybar, who were fairly popular.

    Position Name Points teams
    5      BENOOT Tiesj      112      1
    6      BOOM Lars      100      7
    8      ROELANDTS Jürgen      80      10
    9      STYBAR Zdenek      70      17
    11      OSS Daniel      54      6
    12      POZZATO Filippo      46      16
    13      DEVOLDER Stijn      42      4
    16      BURGHARDT Marcus      32      2

    18      MARCATO Marco      28      1
    21      DEVENYNS Dries      22      11
    26      HAUSSLER Heinrich      12      23
    27      LEUKEMANS Björn      10      1
    30      OFFREDO Yoann      6      7

    Between us, we chose 35 of the 5 pointers, including STANNARD Ian, GAUDIN Damien, VANDENBERGH Stijn, VANMARCKE Sep, VANSUMMEREN Johan and PAOLINI Luca, each of whom are on at least a dozen teams.

    Points today

    Los Brolin had Benoot, but it is Search, the only manager to have selected the other three top ten finishers to have impinged on our collective consciousness, who tops the day's scoring table.  Indeed, ten of his twelve team members scored points today.

    Standings
    Game leader Geraint Too Fast was yet again one of our top scorers (4th on the day), and with the relative failure of DJW (Stybar was his only decent placing today), his lead now extends to over 200 points.  Asdfgh was only slightly outscored by Geraint, and swaps podium places with DJW.  Search is the biggest riser inside the top ten (7th to 4th), and Karaev re-enters that select group.
    Other teams making significant moves up the table are Commodoro, Murrjt and Oliveira, moving up 8, 7 and 6 places respectively.

    Scheldeprijs
    Late, as warned, but the sprintcrash special deserves its write-up.

    Theuns moves into positive points territory within this game, which only three selected riders had done previously, but the real star pick was the other top ten finisher who is named in this game, as Marini moved himself up to a 525% return in one fell move.
    Position Name Points Teams
    2   THEUNS Edward   84   8
    7   MARINI Nicolas   42   1
    11   VALLEE Boris   22   2
    13   EISEL Bernhard   15   4
    15   DELAGE Mickaël   11   2
    20   SKJERPING Kristoffer   6   2
    25   MARKUS Barry   5   1
    26   STUYVEN Jasper   5   10

    Points today:
    The combination of Theuns and Marini gives a clear leader on the day, while half the teams, including the collective wisdom squad, failed to score at all.

    18      PBlazer      5

    18      Crevaison      5
    23      Everyone else   0

    Standings:
    Asdfgh101 is one of the managers to have selected Theuns, so Geraint's advantage at the top is closed to a 'mere' 118 points.  No-one else in the top 6 scored, but none of them lost positions either.  Not My Circus is the biggest mover in the top ten, rising from 9th to 7th, while Tom Jelte fell three places and out of the top ten, replaced by the only team that had three scoring riders in this race, Rote Laterne.  Joelsim's top score earned him a 6 place rise, but did not get him into the top half.

    Paris-Roubaix

    Once again, most of the top ten on the day were too expensive, or too unlikely, to have been selected, so only three of them were picked, but that included Stybar, who has been the best scoring rider relevant to our little diversion by a long way. (Kristoff and Degenkolb have scored more points in the races in question, but at three times the price were left unpicked).  Vanmarcke, equal in popularity with Stybar, moves up to be the second best scoring rider in the game.  Benoot and Rowe move into positive scores today, but were not very popular picks and Boom follows up his 6th in the Ronde to become a fairly worthwhile investment for seven teams.

    Pos Name PtsTeams
    2   STYBAR Zdenek   170   17

    Among the 25 five-pointers that we managed to pick, six were on more than a dozen teams: STANNARD Ian, HAUSSLER Heinrich, GAUDIN Damien, VANDENBERGH Stijn, VANSUMMEREN Johan, and POZZATO Filippo.

    Scores on the day
    4 teams managed to put Stybar and Boom together: GPBlanco, Search, Tom Jelte and Trudgin.  Del1962 combined Stybar and Rowe to break up that foursome, and Karaev deserves special mention for a triple comprising Boom, Rowe and Vanmarcke.  The rest of the top ten today had put Stybar and Vanmarcke together.

    As we move to the Ardennes for the final 4 races, Geraint opens his lead by a further 54 points (Vanmarcke's haul on the day).  Second place on the day has elevated Search to the podium.  The day's top scorer, GPBlanco, breaks into the top five, and Tom Jelte enters the top ten with one of the larger jumps of the day, although the highest positional rise is down near the foot of the table, where Kazistuta leaps five places to the dizzy heights of 38th.

    The riders likely to feature in the Ardennes are mainly expensive, and so haven't featured large in the selections. Only one team invested really heavily in the remaining 4 races: AG who bought Gilbert is however dead last at present.  Are there enough points available through the bargain picks most teams are relying on to bring about much change in the upper reaches?

    10 teams have Sergio, including Karaev and TomJelte (currently 6th and 7th overall): in case you meant Sebastian of that ilk, Tom Jelte has him for good measure as a unique pick.
    You (as you probably know) have Nocentini, but DJW behind you could potentially threaten you through Moser and Jungels.

    mmh, looking at the start lists for next week I just started to talk myself into believing that Roelandts somehow will win Brabant and Amstel - and then I found this:

    More than half the teams scored nothing today, and those who did mainly only had one scoring rider, so the correlation of riders selected to scores is fairly obvious.  Expect AG to be at or near the top of the daily lists for most of the remaining races, as the only one to have spent big on an Ardennes specialist (Gilbert): behind her, the three teams who have already done well through Felline get another boost, especially Scrool07 who also has Devenyns.  Devenyns was popular enough to have been included in the Combined Wisdom team, and apart from Scrool, Trudgin, DJSprtsch and yours truly also managed to combine him with another scorer.

    Standings
    The reason the top teams are there is that they picked well for a different type of race than today's.  That means many of them did not score today.  Five of the top ten, including the top 2, scored nothing today, allowing Search to close the gap to second to just 2 points, and DJW in 4th also draws a little closer.  A one place step up from 10th by Rote Laterne is the only actual change in the top ten.  AG moves off the bottom step, but no other moves were more than 2 places.

    Felline has been one of the most consistent scorers in the game: he is now in profit, which is a notable acheivement as we are comparing a few races with a whole season score, and this has been the 8th race in which he has gained points.

    The 5 pointers included Henao and Roelandts, who are each on ten teams, and Theuns, who is on eight.

    Scores on the day
    All 8 teams that had Gasparotto had at least one five pointer: Akuryo had 2, and JosephD had 3, but Murrjt had Gasparotto, 3 fivers, and Tsatevitch to top the day's standings.

    Standings
    Nocentini moves Search above Asdfgh101 into second place: DJW's Felline was the only other non-five pointer among the cobble orientated top ten sides.  Search's step up was the only change in the top ten.  Murrjt moves up 6 places, but is still outside the top half.  No-one else moved more than three spots.  Like I said, anticlimactic.

    2 races to go, but as with today, riders likely to gain most points are too expensive to have been widely selected.  Will there be anything substantial left to change?

    mmh, 12th for Nocentini in Amstel is actually better than expected, as it's the least suited race of the three for him.

    but to still fight for the win he'd basically need to finish high up in the top 10 in both remaining races, or podium one of them, which is probably not too likely...

    but anyway. Go Walnut, go Walnut :win :win

    another 12th for Nocentini today - looks like he needs to up his game and finish in the Top 5 in Liege now...

    The ten Henao teams are the top ten on the day: Italian Gigolo combined him with Hivert, while La Velocipede, Murrjt and Joseph D link Henao and Gasparotto.  A couple of fivers put the last named in pole position.

    Rankings

    Nocentini closes the gap on Geraint for Search a little further, but the lead still looks likely to survive all the way to Ans.  No positional change in the top ten, although Joseph D moves up 2 spots just outside it.  At the other end, for those interested in the wooden spoon, AG's Gilbert-based tactic intended to provide a late acceleration has rather come off the rails, and she slips back to last.

    Liege-Bastogne-Liege: the final reckoning

    And so the game fizzles out with no fireworks.  Only one of the top ten was selected, and only 6 riders who did anything other than reach the finish line

    plus 11 more 5 pointers who were only on one team.

    Team scores today
    The top ten, the teams with Henao, are the same as they were on Wednesday.  The order of course depends on with whom he was paired: Murrjt, Joseph D and La Velocipede all had Gasparotto, but Vanendert outscores three fivers, or no other scorers, for the daily win.  The sole team with Meitjes was Not My Circus, but those of us who had fivers to back up Nordhaug eclipsed that score.

    FINAL OVERALL
    With an outstanding set of cobbled results never looked like being pegged back, Geraint Too Fast got away with only reaping 10 points from the Ardennes series (in which I include Brabaantse Pijl, while acknowledging the geographical inaccuracy, because it is essentially the same genre).  Nocentini never threatened the surprise result today that might have seen Search run him close.  Henao's earlier than predicted recovery raised the three members of the previous top ten who had trusted his powers of recuperation one further place each today, to 5th, 6th and 7th, while two other Henaoists, Joseph D and Del1962, knock Rote Laterne out of the final top ten.

    Well done to Geraint TooFast, hard luck to those who ran him close, my gratitude to the handful of teams that kept me away from last place, and thanks to everyone for having a go.

    I'll try to post some rider data analysis, but I don't see myself having time before Tuesday evening for that. 

    Keep you eyes peeled: Giro game to follow soon.
