Race 3: Strade Bianche

There are races in this series, mainly when we get to the Ardennes, that suit riders who get a lot of CQ points in GTs and other stage races: that's at least part of the reason why only 3 of the top ten, and 7 of the first twenty finishers, were selected.  We might collectively need other reasons for no-one going for the likes of Power and Serry.

BENOOT Tiesj   1st, 180pts for Armchair Cyclist, Scrool07 and The Art   
VAN AERT Wout    3rd, 92pts for  6 teams
STYBAR Zdenek  7th,   54 pts for 20 teams
OSS Daniel    12th, 27 pts for 7 teams
DE TIER Floris   24pts for Chiron
MOSCON Gianni   22pts, 9 teams
AMADOR BIKKAZAKOVA Andrey   14, 1
ANDERSEN Søren Kragh   8, 1
VERMOTE Julien   6, 3
And for five pointers, we have 3 unique picks (GILBERT Philippe, KEISSE Iljo, LUTSENKO Alexey) and our most popular pick, on 24 teams, VANMARCKE Sep.

1   Armchair   234 (Benoot and Stybar)
2   TheArt   202 (Benoot and Moscon)
3   Scrool07   180 (Benoot)

5   Chiron   162 (Van Aert, Oss, De Tier and Amador)
6   DFA123   157  (Van Aert, Stybar, Vermote and Vanmarcke)
7   NorthAmericanScum   130
8   Fauniera, Josedin   97
10   Russell23   86
11   Laarsland, LosBrolin, Nathanptz, RoteLaterne   81

29   Leadbelly, Trudgin*   27
30   DJSprtsch   13

39   Del1962   0
   CollectiveWisdom   59

Standings
At this early stage perhaps it is not large moves (the top 5 on the day all move by 19 or more places) that are surprising, but that the top two hold onto their places.

1   Blues_in_the_Bottle   424
2   Nathanptz   355
3   Armchair   350
4   DFA123   328
5   NorthAmericanScum   282
6   Chiron   279
7   Laarsland   263
8   Russell23   259
9   TheArt   258
10   NairoQ   241
11   Squire   223
12   Fauniera   219
13   RoteLaterne   218
14   Scrool07   217
14   Hakkie   217
16   Vladimir   207
17   LosBrolin   206
17   ThePirate81   206
19   MellowVelo   200
20   AmisVelo   199
21   Joelsim   195
22   Madrazo   189

24   Comodoro   170
25   Salvarani   168
26   SemirS   154
27   Leadbelly   149
28   Zaka_fan   139
29   Kazistuta   133
29   Shalgo   133
31   Search   128
32   DJSprtsch   125
33   DJW   118
34   Josedin   107
35   The_Asian   106
36   Froschi   102
37   So2017   92
38   Bbass   46
39   Del1962   15
   CollectiveWisdom   210
   Trudgin   179

And now I rue even more the non-counting status of Le Samyn: I would have been top.  I'll stop going on about it now.

Tomorrow is the GP Industria & Artigianato, which could potentially giv a fair few points to a small number of teams, but which I am fairly sure will earn any popular picks nothing.
