Update #32: The top tightens as the Vuelta approaches

This week, there was a typical late-summer slew of races, from the WT-level (Benelux tour, Hamburg race) to HC (Colorado, Arctic Race) on down (Limousin, Hungary, Avenir). Success from a number of places is necessary for winning the week, and in the bigger picture, sustained success on weeks like this is crucial to stay at the top, which as we'll see was shaken up a little this week.

This Week's Top Scorers

Rank   Team   Points this week
1   kabete   633
2   ChrisDK   570
3   archieboy   558
4   Roubaix   543
5   Koronin   513

kabete makes an impressive showing to take the week, pulling in some big points from Benelux (Stybar, Schachmann both over 100 this week), Colorado (Carthy, Dombrowski get almost 200 between them), Hamburg (Nizzolo is starting to look like his old self with high placings) and a few scraps here and there (Gesbert takes 30 in Limousin). ChrisDK grabs second place with some similar riders (Carthy/Dombro/Nizzolo) and some different ones (SK Andersen, Campenaerts, Sagan, Ewan). archieboy slots into third with a big week from unique pick(!) Matej Mohoric and rare pick (5 teams) Mathieu van der Poel.

This Week's High Movers

Rank   Team   Up/down
1   Roubaix   (+11)
1   scrooll07   (+11)
3   Koronin   (+9)
4   PremierAndrew   (+8)
5   Mellow Velo   (+7)
5   ChrisDK   (+7)

A different look on this crew than the last listings, which is not a common sight (although the 1-2-3 here was 4-5-6 on the last rankings). There's a tie at the top - Roubaix and scrooll07 both move up double digits, and Koronin gets a mention on the last step of the podium, moving up 9 spots.

Green Jersey Competition

Rank   Team   Total
1   Squire   220
2   archieboy   209
3   greenedge   179
4   ChrisDK   173
5   Eric10   162

Things got closer at the top here - Squire holds onto the lead, but archieboy scores 30 points on the week to jump out of a tie for second and comes within 11 points of the lead. ChrisDK's 35 points on the week move their team into the top 5, while there is no other scoring or movement in the top 10.

Top 10 Overall

Rank   Up/down   Team   Points
1   (+1)   ruvu75   12496
2   (-1)   Squire   12442
3   (-)   TheArt   12239
4   (-)   Gigs_98   11673
5   (+1)   trackstand   11321
6   (-1)   PeterB   11193
7   (+2)   LosBrolin   11022
8   (-)   greenedge   11019
9   (-2)   Bicycle_Boy   11010
10   (+2)   Manafana   11005

After a good solid while of the top 3 positions remaining static, we have a change at the top! Squire, the leader of the game for many weeks now, has an off week, scoring 126 points while ruvu75 and TheArt score 352 and 346 respectively. Those 3 are still head and shoulders above the rest in the overall, but the distance between first and second is now just 54 points. Any given week could shake things up, and there's still a fair bit of racing to do. This week isn't so crazy, with some 1.1 and 2.1 races on the calendar (including the revamped Deutschland Tour!), but looming in the distance (and starting this weekend) is the Vuelta. Manafana moves into the top 10 while Eyeballs Out drops down to 11th.
