Stage 1  update 2
Yellow Points

This is what the game is really about: this includes the guaranteed points above, but also points according to the riders' current standing in the GC, the points competition and (but not yet) the KoM ranking.  As riders, like investments, can fall in these rankings, so daily updates can have negative scores.

What the scores are at this stage is essentially double daily rankings (because the points ranking is obviously the same as the daily ranking today), plus the GC rankings, from 600 for Thomas to 21 for Erviti in 50th, and 20 points for every rider below that.

I did, as I proposed above, make a compromise for the Collective Wisdom team.  The top 9 in popularity would be way over budget, but swapping out Porte and putting in one of the next riders down left the team way below budget.  So I have half of Porte's cost (and points earned), and half those of Dani Navarro,  The total cost of the team thus made is slightly over budget (4031 pts), but it gives a point of comparison.  (Such chimeric selections as Portvarro will not be available to managers in future editions of the game)

    As I was compiling the tables, I couldn't help noticing that one of your main targets in these games was being missed.  You only came 3rd on the originality (reverse popularity) ranking, and only 2 UPs, beaten twice and matched four times.  Your traditional eccentricity seems to have abandoned you.

    Great day for the Kittel teams, but he will not stay in 2nd on GC for long, so he will get a big negative score sometime soon.  But he might make up for a lot of it with stage points.

    Kittel and Kung together put GPBlanco  over the 1000 mark (for now)

    I was pleased to see that the results sheet at letour.com is a csv table: that'll save a lot of time and correction of CN's vagaries and inconsistencies. 

    Most working days, I'll try to avoid hearing the results and watch the ITV4 highlights at 7pm, and do the update after that, so don't expect it much before 9pm (UK time) most days. 

    I'll keep a working copy of the spreadsheet at Dropbox, so you can investigate further here.

    Classics men are expensive, but don't get many chances in a GT, so are rare picks.  No point scorer is in more than one team, the only team to pick a podium man was last this morning in the overall, so some recompense there.

    Sorry guys, BT have​ managed to leave me without internet for up to 48 hours, and running the game from my phone is not feasible.  Normal service will be resumed as soon as possible.



    EDIT: They got the engineer out within 2 hours rather than 24-48 as estimated: well done BT

    Yellow Points
    The main changes yesterday arose from everyone bar the top three moving up one spot to account for Sagan's removal, or moving up points rankings.  Kittel's loss of the green jersey is the only appreciable loss.

    I don't think I recall so many people over the 1000 point mark before.

    4 teams rise by 20 or more places (Hakkie's 29 being the biggest jump), while 3 teams fall by 20 or more.

    Stage 6 Enjoy Troyes

    Green points

    Most of those who went for a big name sprinter seem to have got the right one

    KITTEL Marcel   80   16   teams
    DEMARE Arnaud   50   1   team
    GREIPEL André   35   1   team
    KRISTOFF Alexander   25   0   team

    MCLAY Daniel   3   5   teams
    SELIG Rüdiger   2   0   team
    DEGENKOLB John   1   0   team


    With Meintjes as his main GC pick, and a team that includes Kittel, Groenewegen, McLay, Boudat and Swift, Kazistuta seems to be targetting this classification rather than the main, Yellow points, game.

    1   Kazistuta   93 (Kittel, Groenewegen and McLay)
    2   GeraintTooFast   90 (Kittel + Groenewegen)
    3=   Bikeracer33, Mellow_Velo   83 (Kittel + McLay)

    CINK Ondrej   -6   9   teams

    On the day:

    Kiserlovski climbed from 51st to 47th, and those 4 points mean that Geraint, not Kiserlovski, is top of the day

    Standings

    The top three retain their positions, but the gap to first is slashed. Kabete and Los Brolin swap plces in the top 5, GPBlanco enters the top ten, and only 2 teams moved by more than 2 places, and only one of them (Search, 3 places) in the right direction.

    Not sure whether that was a rhetorical question, but essentially while everyone else had GC contenders passing non-climbers on the way to La Planche des Belles Filles, you had Latour losing whatever advantage he had from the time trial.

    More interest to watch, at least for first 3/4 of the stage, than it's effect on the game.  Calmejane's rise to top of the KoM classification, and the rises and fall of others, is the main change other than stage points.

    The bottom three in the daily rankings, in exact reverse order, were the top three in the rankings yesterday.  That results in a swap of the top two places, but no other places until you get down to Hakkie moving into the top ten.  Bikeracer333 is the (5 place) jumper of the day.

    The three Uran 'n'Aru teams are split by Hugo's Aru/Bardet/Kittel combo.  The top two have Kittel as well as the palindromic pairing, and are separated only by the difference between Brajkovic (46th) and Kiserlovski (49th).

    The top three this morning all suffer through Porte's misfortune, and despite having Uran, Laarsland cannot capitalise to move up from 4th.  The three teams immediately below him this morning are all now above him; Amis Velo, Mellow Velo, Leadbelly and Vladimir all move into the top ten, but none of them can match DJW's 18 place jump.

    On the day:
    Poor Capt Cavman might have achieved the biggest daily loss in the history of the games, losing both Porte and Thomas...

    My early race smugness has come back to bite me. And even though in my head I know it's just superstitious mumbo-jumbo, I can't help but feel partly responsible for the karmic retribution that put both riders in hospital.

    Should I alert their lawyers and insurers to your admission of culpability?

    Yellow points

    Once the "heads of state" are at the top of GC rankings, subsequent changes are as much the result of failings and falls rather than active progress.  So today there are 2 main falls: Froome's hands a huge dividend to Aru (and potentially several days of 20 point bonuses); Fuglsangs gives smaller numbers of points to many riders

    Standings:

    Squire's lead more than doubles (from 3 points to 7) because although Fauniera's Kiserlovski moved up 2 places to 46th, Brajkovic went up from 45th to 39th.  The gap between the two riders who are probably unaware that the game rests on their relative performances has gone out to 5:38 today. 

    Amis Velo is the highest placed team to see any improvement in position, up 2 places to 6th, Shalgo is into the top ten, and Ratta Kuningas has the biggest (7 place) improvement.

    Standings:  All the Aru teams in the top 13 dropped roughly the same number of points, so none of them changed position at all.  Hayabusa is the top placed to have moved, and Armchair Cyclist's 9 place rise is the best of the day.

    But in the all important Brajkovic/Kiserlovski battle, Janez had an off day, finishing 4:45 behind his rival, and losing 3 places on GC, while Kiserlovski moves up 2 GC places.  That means there are now just 2 points between Squire and Fauniera, and 53 seconds between the two unaware protagonists.

    Stage 15  Nearly mayhem in the Midi

    Green points

    This is where points in the Tour game are harder to come by than in the Giro/Vuelta editions.  In Mayor August, there are budget riders who might feature in such a breakaway: only one of this lot would have cost less than 300pts of your budget.

    Standings:
    Kiserlovski was in the break, and although he didn't feature in the latter stages (he was overtaken by Dan Martin near the end), he was 5'20 ahead of Brajkovic, whom he overtakes, as well as a few others, thus boosting Fauniera ahead of Search.  Amis Velo also moves up to the virtual podium.  Pirate81, Los Brolin and Comodoro all moved up 2 spots, nobody did more.

    Rest Day 2

    So where have all those points come from? 

    Green points
    Unlike the green jersey IRL, this catgory yields the same amount of points every day: 80 to the stage winner down to 1 for tenth, plus 20 point bonus for whoever receives the yellow that evening (no bonus next Sunday though)

    Looking at this, its no wonder that those with Kittel and Aru dominate (No-one combines Kittel with Froome or Demare):
    1   KITTEL Marcel   402   16   teams
    2   FROOME Chris   275   2   teams
    3   MATTHEWS Michael   202   0   team
    4   DEMARE Arnaud   190   1   team
    5   ARU Fabio   182   20   teams
    6   THOMAS Geraint   164   1   team
    7   BARGUIL Warren   145   6   teams
    8   URAN URAN Rigoberto   138   3   teams
    9   BOASSON HAGEN Edvald   122   0   team
    10   BARDET Romain   120   5   teams
    10   GROENEWEGEN Dylan   120   2   teams
    12   KRISTOFF Alexander   115   0   team
    13   GREIPEL André   112   1   team
    14   MARTIN Daniel   110   1   team
    15   CALMEJANE Lilian   85   0   team
    16   SAGAN Peter   81   0   team
    17   MOLLEMA Bauke   80   0   team

    Yellow Points
    This includes the above, but also points for the mountain and points categories in the same distribution as for a stage, and the GC standings points: 600 for first, then 450, 380, 320, 290 down to 21 for 50th and 20 for all finishers below that.

    1   FROOME Chris   887   2   teams
    2   ARU Fabio   636   20   teams
    3   KITTEL Marcel   502   16   teams
    4   BARDET Romain   500   5   teams
    5   URAN URAN Rigoberto   458   3   teams
    6   MARTIN Daniel   408   1   team
    7   BARGUIL Warren   345   6   teams
    8   LANDA MEANA Mikel   338   0   team
    9   MATTHEWS Michael   272   0   team
    10   YATES Simon   257   0   team
    11   CONTADOR VELASCO Alberto   220   1   team
    12   MEINTJES Louis   215   19   teams
    13   QUINTANA ROJAS Nairo Alexander   193   0   team
    14   DEMARE Arnaud   190   1   team
    15   GREIPEL André   167   1   team
    16   THOMAS Geraint   164   1   team
    17   KRISTOFF Alexander   160   0   team
    17   CARUSO Damiano   160   0   team
    19   BOASSON HAGEN Edvald   152   0   team
    20   GROENEWEGEN Dylan   145   2   teams

    The problem that most managers found was selecting any riders who were inexpensive but had much point winning potential.  The average budget per rider was 444, so moderately expensive picks (between average and 2x average spend) could have yielded:
    URAN URAN Rigoberto   458   3   teams
    LANDA MEANA Mikel   338   0   teams
    MEINTJES Louis   215   19   teams
    THOMAS Geraint   164   1   teams
    CARUSO Damiano   160   0   teams
    BENNETT George   138   1   teams
    CALMEJANE Lilian   134   0   teams
    LATOUR Pierre   110   3   teams
    GALLOPIN Tony   90   0   teams
    BUCHMANN Emanuel   88   7   teams


    Spending between average and half of that offered little earning power, with one notable exception:
    BARGUIL Warren   345   6   teams
    VUILLERMOZ Alexis   109   0   team
    MARTIN Guillaume   107   2   teams
    NIEVE ITURRALDE Mikel   101   2   teams
    ROCHE Nicolas   76   0   team
    KREUZIGER Roman   72   5   teams
    KÜNG Stefan   70   2   teams
    PAUWELS Serge   66   6   teams
    BAKELANTS Jan   62   1   team
    KIRYIENKA Vasil   55   0   team
    SELIG Rüdiger   52   0   team
    HARDY Romain   52   0   team

    And the riders half of budget or below, who we all have to look at to be able to afford the top men, have had very little to offer, most of us having at least opted for the best return available:
    BETANCUR GOMEZ Carlos Alberto   82   22   teams
    FEILLU Brice   77   0   teams
    NAVARRO GARCIA Daniel   47   11   teams
    DEGAND Thomas   39   0   teams
    GASTAUER Ben   37   0   teams
    KISERLOVSKI Robert   35   12   teams
    BROWN Nathan   34   4   teams
    BRAJKOVIC Janez   31   6   teams
    CIMOLAI Davide   30   2   teams
    GAUTIER Cyril   30   0   teams
    MOINARD Amaël   24   0   teams
    VANSPEYBROUCK Pieter   23   0   teams

    Stage 16 echelons, ish

    Green points


    The sprinters who might have earned some teams points came in 16 minutes later

    MATTHEWS Michael   80   0   team
    BOASSON HAGEN Edvald   50   0   team

    BENOOT Tiesj   3   0   team
    BODNAR Maciej   2   0   team
    HARDY Romain   1   0   team

    Only two riders scored, and Bicycle Boy has them both.
    1   BicycleBoy   35
    2   Armchair_Cyclist   20
    3   Yellow_Knight   15

    Not really worth the bandwidth to post a standings list: BB moves up to one to 20th.

    Yellow points

    Where Martin, Contador and Bennett lose out, others (mainly unselected) gain.

    Standings
    Kiserlovski again did better than Brajkovic, so Fauniera's lead grows.  Ten riders move up one place: Just Some Guy in 12th being the highest placed of them.  7 of those sharing in the daily riser award do so courtesy of Carlos Algatrensig's  Bennett related losses.

    Yellow points
    Aru is the most selected rider among GC contenders, so many teams had a poor day today.  Almost as many lose Kittel's leadership of the points classification.

    Kiserlovski now has about 3 minutes over Brajkovic: if Squire is to make up ground, it might have to be through Tulik, Poljanski or Bevin (or a DNF for Voeckler, Boudat or Kozhatayev).  Laarsland overtakes Hugo87, placing the three Uran teams in the top 4.  Although Froome is the rider who least obviously gained points from Aru's difficulties, but the two biggest risers are the two who invested in him: Armchair up 8 to 7th, and Bicycle Boy up 10 spots.  6 and 7 place leaps respectively bring The Pirate81 and AlPacino into the top ten as well as Armchair.

    Kiserlovski beats Brajkovic in the battle that neither of them know about, but suddenly it is much less important.  Good news for Barguil and Bardet, losses for Uran and Aru, and suddenly Amis Velo jumps from third to top spot. The other team with both Bar-men, Al Pacino, rises from 10th to 6th, but DJW's 6 place jump is best of the day.
