End of Year 2

Najar's disqualification from the Vuelta a San Juan brings bonuses to those who picked Ganna (14 points for 22 teams), Cavagna (5 points for 16 teams) and Narvaez (1 point for one team), and so the adjusted end of Year 2 table is:

1   Blues_in_the_Bottle   10097
2   Cordi333   10008
3   Jakob747   10000
4   Squire   9881
5   HugoKoblet   9855
6   TheAsian   9824
7   Vladimir   9800
8   Flo   9692
9   Hakkie2   9684
10   ValvPiti   9554
11   AmisVelo   9549
12   Skidmark   9369
13   Murrjt   9341
14   18Valve   9251
15   Del1962   9250
16   Madrazo   9214
17   Ludwigzgz   8991
18   ThePirate81   8941
19   GPBlanco   8737
20   Torcio86   8697
21   Laarsland   8457
22   Joelsim   8344
23   LukasCPH   8177
24   Togo95   8164
25   Kryvo   8070
26   Josedin   8066
27   Armchair_Cyclist   7977
28   Comodoro   7866
29   DJW   7820
30   Kazistuta   7805
31   RoteLaterne   7125
32   Scrooll07   6543
33   Tych23   5058
34   Leadbelly   4442
35   Trudgin   3980
   CollectiveWisdom   10157

Ganna's end of season bonus was enough to have Cordi reclaim 2nd place.

The best scores only this year were
1   Blues_in_the_Bottle   6247
2   Vladimir   6174
3   Cordi333   6124
4   Jakob747   6072
5   HugoKoblet   6006
6   Squire   5989
7   Flo   5932
8   TheAsian   5823
9   AmisVelo   5803
10   Hakkie2   5761
   CollectiveWisdom   6035

Vladimir will rue his poor first year (18th in year 1), while Madrazo (1st a year ago, now 16th) will wonder what his selection have done with the apparent talent they had.  Blues in the Bottle had been a humble 8th a year ago.

Thus far, the best possible team would be:
BERNAL GOMEZ Egan Arley      1896   30
CARAPAZ MONTENEGRO Richard Antonio      1189   12
MAS NICOLAU Enric      1182   27
SCHACHMANN Maximilian      998   23
JAKOBSEN Fabio      895   0
HOFSTETTER Hugo      801   1
GUERREIRO Ruben Antonio Almeida      772   16
VAN DER HOORN Taco      730   0

SOSA CUERVO Ivan Ramiro      719   1
MARTINEZ POVEDA Daniel Felipe      713   16
MASNADA Fausto      662   0
CERNY Josef      658   0

GAUDU David      651   34
STRAKHOV Dmitry      628   0
BALLERINI Davide      611   0

MADOUAS Valentin      594   2
HODEG CHAGUI Alvaro Jose      584   2
CAVAGNA Rémi      579   16
for a total of 14862  (Blues in the Bottle has 67.9% of this)

The Collective Ignorance team, those none of us picked, such as Jakobsen, Van der Hoorn and Masnada, would have a total thus far of 9820, and would be only 7th in the table, which shows an improvement in our picking skills compared to previous editions.

Five riders have still not managed to gain a point, while our second most popular pick in this edition, Albanese, has still to justify his hype.
