(part 2 of post; velorooms was kicking me out when I tried to post the whole thing in one go)

Green Jersey Competition

Rank   Team   Total   Wk8
1   Jon_Ezeitza   90   
2   Kryvo   80   
3   18-Valve. (pithy)   74   
4   ChrisDK   72   
5   Geraint Too Fast   65

Not much action on this leaderboard this week, as GTF's weekly win gets their team into 5th overall, but no other points scored in the top 10 overall.

Top 10 Overall

Rank   Up/down   Team   Points
1   (-)   Nathanptz   2457
2   (-)   Popchu   2399
3   (+1)   Squire   2263
4   (+1)   Kryvo   2249
5   (+8)   abbulf   2245
6   (+6)   kabete   2212
7   (-1)   DJ Sprtsch   2203
8   (+3)   Valv.Piti   2201
9   (+9)   minessa   2195
10   (-3)   fauniera   2175

After almost relinquishing the lead last week, Nathanptz pulls back away a bit to ensure a third week at the top over Popchu. Squire continues an inexorable march up the standings to nab the final podium spot. Lots of changeover in the top 10 from week to week lately, and this week is similar, with abbulf, kabete, Valv.Piti and minessa jumping in, and JSpear, LosBrolin, Blues in the bottle and former leader bminchow (who has a very unfortunate week with only 3 points!) fall out.

    1. HC Ronde van Drenthe is on the table tomorrow... probably the race to score big time for every rider with only the slightest bit of a pedigree for one day races - and all I have to offer is #monkeytown Peter Schulting...

    anyway. Hup, Peter, hup :win

    Update #9: Soler Power Fuels Top Teams

    With Paris-Nice the only major points on offer this week, plus some stages of Tirenno-Adriatico, it had the potential for an interesting week. And the big points were picked up by pretty rare riders. Accordingly, there were some serious runs up the overall table by a number of teams.

    This Week's Top Scorers

    Rank   Team   Points this week
    1   archieboy   650
    2   DJW   501
    3   Riverside   486
    4   Blues in the bottle   484
    5   drebelo   474

    archieboy absolutely crushes it this week, outscoring second place by almost 150 points! The 13 teams that had Marc Soler (327 points from Paris-Nice) were always going to have the advantage this week, but it was his breakaway companion on stage 8, unique pick David De La Cruz (130 points), that puts archieboy over the top. 61 points from Carapaz (8 teams) and 53 from Oomen (33 teams) help out as well. DJW turns in a more-than-respectable 2nd place, breaking 500 points almost entirely on the back of Soler, Oomen and almost unique pick (2 teams) Patrick Konrad with a breakthrough performance and 116 points. Riverside squeaks into third with Alaphilippe and Landa bolstering Soler's haul.

    This Week's High Movers

    Rank   Team   Up/down
    1   archieboy   (+75)
    2   drebelo   (+46)
    3   Eyeballs Out   (+44)
    4   Eric10   (+42)
    5   scrooll07   (+40)

    archieboy doubles up with the domination, and no matter how you slice it, a 75-spot leap in a single week is pretty incredible. Don't let this overshadow the other impressive leaps, such as 46 places for second-place drebelo (notable rider that hasn't been mentioned: Fraile, 4 teams, got 66 points) and 44 places for third-place Eyeballs Out.

    Green Jersey Competition

    Rank   Team   Total
    1   Jon_Ezeitza   90
    2   Kryvo   80
    3   archieboy   77
    4   18-Valve. (pithy)   74
    5   ChrisDK   72

    No team can yet touch the early season double-weekly-win total of Jon Ezeitza, but archieboy enters the conversation at #3 overall with the 45 points this week adding to 2 for 14th last week, and 30 more for 3rd place in week 6. Other than that the top 5 doesn't score, and lower down Blues in the bottle moves to 6th and last year's winner scrooll07 into 10th.

    Top 10 Overall

    Rank   Up/down   Team   Points
    1   (+15)   Blues in the bottle   2625
    2   (-1)   Nathanptz   2537
    3   (-1)   Popchu   2534
    4   (-1)   Squire   2464
    5   (-1)   Kryvo   2449
    6   (+1)   DJ Sprtsch   2417
    7   (+34)   CQmanager   2406
    8   (+12)   trackstand   2390
    9   (-1)   Valv.Piti   2386
    10   (+2)   TheArt   2371

    Normally, the leaping about in the standings happens farther down, and the very top is a game of inches and incremental movements. But that gets thrown out the window this week as Blues in the bottle jumps fifteen places into the top spot! Their team is solid throughout, with 30 out of 33 riders having scored this year, and this week's haul from Soler puts them over the top. Everyone else in the top 5 gets displaced one spot by this huge move, and the only other entries into the top 10 are from other big movers, CQmanager in 7th from 41st, and trackstand to 8th from 20th. abbulf, kabete, and minessa say goodbye to the top 10 for now, falling out after last week.

    Update #10: The Rich Get Richer - Top 4 of the Week are Top 4 Overall

    **note: I'm still looking for people to take on the posting of the updates for June and July. If you are interested, please let me know either here or by PM, thanks!**

    I saw that the update was out on Sunday so I've got a jump on it this week!

    The first monument of the classics season is done! It is not having quite as much of an impact on the standings as last year's, when a very popular Kwiatkowski took the win. This year, a rider nobody had - Vincenzo Nibali, who is very good every year and thus likely wouldn't have a much higher ceiling than his score - took out a thrilling victory, but took those 280 points away from everyone in this game. There were also the points for the GC of Tirenno on offer, which also didn't affect the game too much, as winner Kwiatkowski was only on 2 teams this year, again because of his good showing last season. That meant a combo of placings in these races and the 3 1.HC races (none of which were above 1.1 3 years ago - what's up with the UCI upping the category for nearly every race?) would give the best chance of victory this week.

    This Week's Top Scorers

    Rank   Team   Points this week
    1   TheArt   893
    2   ruvu75   822
    3   Squire   764
    4   Nathanptz   753
    5   Hugo Koblet   728

    If the name at the top looks familiar, it's because it's the same one that was at the top of the leaderboard in Week 6. TheArt takes a second weekly win of the year, scoring a whopping 893 points this week! Last time it was rare pick Lutsenko in Oman that powered their team to victory as well as Geraint Thomas in Algarve. This time, Thomas' 162 points from Tirenno lead the way, but not far behind is the impressive neo-pro Fabio Jakobsen with 155 this week. Triple digit scores from Jurgen Roelandts and Davide Formolo help a lot, as do a pair of 84-point showings from Halvorsen and Capiot. ruvu75 is the only team to come remotely close, with all those riders but Capiot, and a healthy collection of 40+ points from supporting riders. Squire rounds out the podium with a nice week from many of those same riders.

    This Week's High Movers

    Rank   Team   Up/down
    1   Hugo Koblet   (+42)
    2   oliveira   (+35)
    2   Poles & Co.   (+35)
    4   Shawnm4747   (+33)
    5   laarsland   (+31)

    Normally there is significant overlap between this list and the previous one, but... well, read the title of this post. Game founder Hugo Koblet, the highest scoring team that wasn't already in or almost in the top 10, takes a solid 42 point leap up the charts. Despite lamenting the loss of Gaviria, his team fills in admirably, as one of the only teams with both QuickStep neo-pros that scored big this week, Jakobsen and Hodeg... or so I thought before writing the next sentence. oliveira and Poles & Co. tie for 2nd with equal 35 point leaps, and they also each have both of those guys (plus oliveira has Sagan, and Poles & Co. has Ewan).

    Green Jersey Competition

    Rank   Team   Total
    1   TheArt   90
    1   Jon_Ezeitza   90
    3   Nathanptz   80
    3   Kryvo   80
    5   archieboy   77

    We have some real changes at the top! With a second weekly win, TheArt matches Jon Ezeitza's feat from earlier in the year, and therefore their teams are tied since neither has any top 15 placing points from other weeks. Nathanptz gets 26 points this week to leap into a tie for 3rd with Kryvo as well. Lower down, PeterB jumps into the top 10 but no other scorers in the very top of the board.

    Top 10 Overall

    Rank   Up/down   Team   Points
    1   (+1)   Nathanptz   3290
    2   (+8)   TheArt   3264
    3   (+1)   Squire   3228
    4   (+11)   ruvu75   3158
    5   (-4)   Blues in the bottle   3099
    6   (-3)   Popchu   3021
    7   (+5)   LosBrolin   2931
    8   (+1)   Valv.Piti   2911
    9   (-4)   Kryvo   2890
    10   (-2)   trackstand   2885

    A real jackpot for the top teams this week as already mentioned - Nathanptz gets 4th on the week but was already in 2nd place, and so their team regains the lead from last week's leader Blues in the bottle. Squire already was in 4th and gets 3rd on the week, but TheArt was in 10th last week and scored so many more points than anyone else that their team leapfrogs nearly everyone into 2nd overall. ruvu75 turns a good week into a top 10, and LosBrolin jumps in the top 10 as well, while CQmanager and DJ Sprtsch fall out.

    good job :cool

    I have three GC winners (with Valverde, Rosa and Raileanu) but I think that's it more or less. Apart from Viviani of course

    edit: Viviani was last year :D

    Update: Koronin Cracks 1K!

    Whoa.

    This Week's Top Scorers

    Rank   Team   Points this week
    1   Koronin   1112
    2   Eyeballs Out   947
    3   minessa   945
    4   LaFlorecita   944
    5   Shawnm4747   940

    That's some Grand Tour GC points right there. The stars aligned this week with a few WT classics, a WT stage race, and a smattering of other things from the 2.HC Langkawi to the 2.1 Coppi e Bartali to the 1.1 races in France. Most of these races had some prominent riders in this game, and with another jawdropping 367 points this week, it was going to be a team with Valverde that led the charge. But hey, wanna know how to get over 1100 points in a single week like this? Piti is only the start, you've gotta get 3x that amount. Terpstra helps, a moderately popular pick that did the right thing in E3 and brought in over 200. Heck, Soler and his 143 this week also help, making him already over 100 points in profit at almost 600 total. Being one of the 12 teams to pick Stybar also would help with his 110. Then smatterings of 50 here from Ben O'Connor and 42 there from Max Schachmann there would also help. Guess what? Koronin had all of 'em, and cleaned the heck up. Great week for a game neophyte especially. Of course, the ridiculous totals of the rest of the top 5 are overshadowed by this, but Eyeballs Out squeaks out 2nd place with Valv/Soler/Latour/Rosa while minessa edges out LaFlo for 3rd with Valv/Latour/Rosa and a good supporting cast. Yikes! Do you think that means there were some big jumps this week?

    This Week's High Movers

    Rank   Team   Up/down
    1   Koronin   (+54)
    2   vladimir   (+36)
    3   Manafana   (+32)
    4   minessa   (+29)
    5   JSpear   (+28)

    Well, yep. Koronin vaults up the table 54 spots, as one is wont to do with an 1100 point week in March in this game (to put it in context, 3 times that would get you in the top 30 for the year). vladimir, who didn't appear on the Top Scorers list, makes a big move up 36 with no Valverde but thanks to the interesting team including Quintana, Stybar, Latour, and make-you-look-brilliant unique pick Christophe Laporte, plus no fewer than 3 riders scoring exactly 40 points this week. Manafana slides into third with another non-Valverde team, this time with Stybar, Latour, Terpstra and George Bennett. Even after watching all the week's racing, 'Zdenek Stybar' is not a name I'd think of as having several mentions in this update. Interesting!

    Green Jersey Competition

    Rank   Team   Total
    1   Kryvo   98
    2   TheArt   90
    2   Jon_Ezeitza   90
    4   Nathanptz   80
    5   archieboy   77

    New leader this week! Kryvo was tied for 3rd at 80 last week but got 18 points this week to leapfrog former co-leaders TheArt and Jon_Ezeitza. No other movement at the top this week.

    Top 10 Overall

    Rank   Up/down   Team   
    1   (+8)   Kryvo   3767
    2   (+14)   Eyeballs Out   3759
    3   (-1)   TheArt   3754
    4   (+2)   Popchu   3711
    5   (-4)   Nathanptz   3693
    6   (+7)   PeterB   3598
    7   (-3)   ruvu75   3595
    8   (+23)   LaFlorecita   3577
    9   (+54)   Koronin   3572
    10   (+25)   Shawnm4747   3564

    And the Green Jersey competition isn't the only thing Kryvo takes the lead in this week. Look at that carnage! some enormous leaps going on in the top 10, and some pretty serious upheaval. The top is incredibly tight, with 13 points separating the top 3! 4th and 5th are around 50-60 points back of the podium. This is quite the race going on. Who knows what will happen while Valverde goes into two week hibernation until the Ardennes? This year is becoming one of the most changeable I can remember. As far as the top 10 goes, Kryvo was already in 9th place, but Eyeballs Out takes a big leap into the top 10, as does PeterB. And enormous leaps for LaFlo, of course Koronin (54 places! Into 9th!) and Shawnm4747. Condolences to Squire, trackstand, Blues in the bottle, Valv.Piti, and omg LosBrolin who each fall out of the top 10.

    On your page he's listed as SANZ Enrique and on CQ as SANZ UNZUE Enrique. You could PM EvansIsTheBest and ask him if he could change this for the next update

    Evansisthebest is doing the updates but not registered here at the moment so here is a cut and paste from what he has put in the CN forum

    Quote
    Update: Lightbing dominates De Ronde, dominates the week

    Hi, I’ll be taking over for skidmark for the month of April. Sorry for the late update but CQ decide to wait until the end of the first stage of Pais Vasco to publish the update so I couldn’t get to it yesterday.

    This Week's Top Scorers

    Rank Team Points this week
    1 LightBing 695
    2 jsem94 668
    3 scrooll07 656
    4 Koronin 632
    5 Roubaix 631

    With the biggest race of the week being the Ronde Van Vlaanderen, LightBing took advantage of the Boonen-sized hole in the Quick Step lineup to ride former teammate Terpstra to victory. There was support from other riders (Benoot, Vanmarcke, Politt, Haussler) but with only Alaphilippe contributing outside of Flanders, there’s no question where the scoring came from. Jsem94 (Terpstra, Vanmarcke, Valgren) is barely edged out from the top spot and would have been even closer had Anthony Turgis not managed to score -5 points on the week (what’s up with that?). Scrooll07 is third which proves that getting the top 2 right in a monument can cover for a rather lackluster week from everybody else (nobody else on their team scored above 30 points). Koronin continue to bulldoze their way to the top of the rankings (more on that later) with Terpstra, Stybar and as always Valverde. As you would expect during this time of year, Roubaix rounds out the top 5 with Vanmarcke, Stybar and Terpstra leading the way.

    This Week's High Movers

    Rank Team Up/down
    1 jsem94 (+34)
    2 tom_jelte (+34)
    3 Roubaix (+31)
    4 simple (+31)
    5 derrudi (+29)

    Jsem94 gets the top spot this time but shares it with tom_jelte who used the two Quickstep guys and a fifth place from Eddie Dunbar in the Volta Limburg Classic to rise 34 places. Roubaix and simple (Terpstra and Vanmarcke) also rise more than 30 spots. Derrudi closes the top 5 with Terpstra (who else?) and Valgren.

    Green Jersey Competition

    1 Kryvo 98
    2 TheArt 90
    2 Jon_Ezeitza 90
    4 LightBing 87
    5 scrooll07 86

    The podium remains unchanged but LightBing, scrooll07 and Koronin ride their great results to 4th, 5th and 6th respectively. With another week of cobbles classics, it might be their last opportunity to reach the top in a while.

    Top 10 Overall

    Rank Up/down Team
    1 (+1) Eyeballs Out 4258
    2 (+7) Koronin 4204
    3 (-) TheArt 4203
    4 (+1) Nathanptz 4121
    5 (+5) Shawnm4747 4067
    6 (+13) GP Blanco 4026
    7 (-) ruvu75 4025
    8 (-2) PeterB 4023
    9 (+17) LightBing 4022
    10 (+4) trackstand 4003

    Former leader Kryvo slips all the way to 13th but that’s hardly surprising in the middle of the cobbles season with a team headlined by Valverde, Izagirre, Lopez, Chaves, Latour, Gaudu and Kudus. Better days ahead to be sure. Eyeballs Out barely holds off Koronin with 53 of the 54-point margin coming from the first stage of Pais Vasco. TheArt stays in third while GP Blanco, LightBing and trackstand make their entry in the top 10. Meanwhile, Popchu (no Terpstra) and LaFlorecita (nobdy besides Terpstra) fall out.

    This Month's Top Scorers

    Rank Team Points this month
    1 Koronin 2466
    2 Eyeballs Out 2408
    3 Shawnm4747 2222
    4 scrooll07 2087
    5 TheArt 2035
    6 GP Blanco 2016
    7 PeterB 1973
    8 Manafana 1947
    9 LightBing 1931
    10 LaFlorecita 1924

    With the first big month of the season done, it’s no surprise to see the monthly ranking is very similar to the overall ranking. Koronin and Eyeballs Out swap the top spot. Shawnm4747, TheArt, GP Blanco, PeterB and LightBing also feature on both top 10. Scrooll07 is third this week, fourth this month and twelfth overall. LaFlorecita is fourteenth overall and Manafana is the lowest of the monthly top 10 at a very respectable eighteenth overall still.

    This Month's High Movers

    Rank Team Up/down
    1 Koronin (+75)
    2 Eyeballs Out (+62)
    3 Shawnm4747 (+59)
    4 JPettersen (+55)
    5 armchairclimber (+53)
    6 scrooll07 (+49)
    7 archieboy (+47)
    7 Carlo_Algatrensig (+47)
    7 jsem94 (+47)
    10 oliveira (+45)

    No surprise here, as Koronin jumps all the way from 77th to 2nd and Eyeballs jumps 62 spots into first place and Shawnm4747 id this month’s third highest mover. How about JPettersen though? Their team is the embodiment of consistently good but not great, being currently ranked 28th overall and having climbed 55 spots in march while not scoring a single point in the green jersey competition. Armchairclimber and archieboy relied on Marc Soler to feature high on the list while Carlo Algantrensig used a pair of Yates brothers (picked 6 times combined) to have the most unique feel of the teams in the top 10. Finally, oliveira rounds out the top 10 (having Sagan in march helps, I guess).

    Posted from CN, where Evans is the Best is currently providing updates

    Update: Forget Paris, it's all about Roubaix

    The cobbles are done, the hilly classics are due next. Let's hope we collectively do a better job of finding the hero of the day for Amstel, Fleche and Liege than we did for Roubaix. Nobody saw that performance from Dillier coming.

    This Week's Top Scorers

    Rank Team Points this week
    1   Roubaix   757
    2   Salvarani   716
    3   barmaher   694
    4   kiilike   693
    5   Valv.Piti   681

    Roubaix is the best scorer for a week that ended in the Velodrome of Roubaix. You can't make this stuff up. A strong team effort (Mas, Terpstra, Jakobsen, Stybar, Vanmarcke, Phinney, Walscheid) is enough to push their team ahead of the pack. Salvarani lands 2nd place despite the fact that only five riders on their team scored and only one in Roubaix (Sagan, Landa, Mas, Betancur and Padun). Barhamer also did the bulk of their scoring outside of Roubaix (I. Izaguirre, Mas, Bilbao, Amador, Jakobsen). Like Salvarani, kiilike rides the Sagan/Landa/Mas trio to a high score. Valv.Piti emulates barhamer with I. Izaguirre, Mas and Jakobsen but a different smattering of lesser scorers (Phinney, Valverde, Brambilla).

    This Week's High Movers


    Rank Team Up/down
    1   barmaher   (+30)
    2   Salvarani   (+29)
    3   Roubaix   (+21)
    4   simple   (+20)
    4   Jancouver   (+20)

    Barhamer, Salvarani and Roubaix use their big weeks to soar up the rankings. No surprise there. On the other hand, Sep Vanmarcke finishing as the fourth highest scorer for simple's team behind Niki Terpstra, Guillaume Martin and Emanuel Buchmann is pretty wild. To date, it's been a tough year for Jancouver's most expensive picks so I'm sure seeing Sagan dominate on Sunday was a big relief. Jakobsen helps their team sweep the week's cobbled classics. Phinney also did his part by hopefully getting his career back on track.

    Green Jersey Competition


    1   Roubaix   102
    2   Kryvo   98
    3   TheArt   90
    3   Jon_Ezeitza   90
    5   LightBing   87

    Roubaix takes the lead as the icing on the cake for their great week but with the hilly classics and the Giro on the horizon, there could be a bunch of new teams vying for the top spot in that ranking very soon.

    Top 10 Overall


    Rank Up/down Team
    1   (-)   Eyeballs Out   4838
    2   (+4)   GP Blanco   4686
    3   (+2)   Shawnm4747   4614
    4   (-2)   Koronin   4611
    5   (-2)   TheArt   4608
    6   (+1)   ruvu75   4588
    7   (+3)   trackstand   4563
    8   (-4)   Nathanptz   4507
    9   (-)   LightBing   4476
    10   (+2)   scrooll07   4425

    12th on the week, Eyeballs Out stretch their lead out. With the bottom of the lineup (Riabushenko, Phinney, Betancur and Lambrecht) showing signs of life and Alaphilippe ready to pounce, that lead could continue to grow in the next week. GP Blanco (7th on the week) surges to second place and if Wallays hadn't cracked in the finale of Paris-Roubaix, they could have made things very interesting at the top. Lower in the order, scrooll07 (Terpstra, Mas, Phinney) sneaks into the top 10 while PeterB (Terpstra, Wallays, Debusschere) makes way.

    The light(bing) at the end of the tunnel

    This Week's Top Scorers

    Rank   Team   Points this week
    1   LightBing   449
    2   search   378
    3   Yellow Knight   345
    4   Wallenquist   332
    5   Gigs_98   329

    With only a few one day races and the GP de Beiras beside the main event of the week (Tro Bro Leon obviously), this week was never going to reach the heights of the previous updates. Unless of course you just happen to own all of Kreuziger, Benoot, Alaphilippe, Silva, Brandao and Craddock like LightBing. A 71 pts difference with the second place search, who scored 378 pts (Valverde, Alaphilippe, Gasparotto and Brandao) for the entire week as a point of reference, is impressive to say the least. Yellow Knight relies on the specialist of Amstel Gold Race (Gasparotto) and an impressive ride by Craddock to complement his top priced riders Sagan and Alaphilippe for third on the week. Wallenquist and Gigs_98 both use the Alaphilippe-Kreuziger duo to get a top 5 finish meaning that none of the teams that selected Valgren made the cut.

    This Week's High Movers


    Rank   Team   Up/down
    1   search   (+23)
    2   Yellow Knight   (+16)
    3   adamski101   (+14)
    4   del1962   (+12)
    4   yoyokt   (+12)
    4   torcia_86   (+12)


    LightBing is too high in the overall to feature here (more on that later) leaving the top spots to search (+23) and Yellow Knight (+16). Adamski101 is the first Valgren team to make an appearance in the update and jumps 14 spots. Del1962 (Sagan, Gasparotto), yoyokt (Valverde, Gasparotto, Craddock) and torcia_86 (Valgren, Alaphilippe) are tied for fourth (+12).

    Green Jersey Competition


    Rank   Team   Total
    1   LightBing   132
    2   Kryvo   108
    3   Roubaix   102
    4   TheArt   90
    4   Jon_Ezeitza   90

    LightBing takes control here with their second update win in three weeks while Kryvo had another good week to overtake Roubaix. TheArt and Jon_Ezeitza are the only other teams less than a weekly win away from the top spot so there is some real separation for the first time this year.

    Top 10 Overall

    Rank   Up/down   Team   
    1   (-)   Eyeballs Out   5038
    2   (+7)   LightBing   4925
    3   (+3)   ruvu75   4883
    4   (+1)   TheArt   4855
    5   (+2)   trackstand   4832
    6   (-4)   GP Blanco   4826

    9   (+2)   Giallo   4722
    10   (-)   scrooll07   4693

    Eyeballs Out holds off LightBing (2nd, +7) for the top spot thanks to the efforts of Gasparotto and Alaphilippe. Ruvu75 climbs on the podium with the efforts of the usual suspects (Alaphilippe, Gasparotto and Craddock) but also rare pick Madouas. Giallo (+2, 9th) enters the top 10 with their extreme top heavy approach bearing fruits in the classics (Valverde, Sagan AND Alaphilippe). Nathanptz (15th, -7) makes way as the lack of top level punchers on their team starts to show.
