Race 13: Dwars door Vlaanderen

The winning break included the most popular pick in the game, one unique pick, and three who were unchosen: the final podium was Unpicked-Unique pick-Popular

TEUNISSEN Mike   2nd, 108pts for Salvarani
VANMARCKE Sep   3rd, 92 for 24 teams
STYBAR Zdenek    6th, 62 for 20 teams
BENOOT Tiesj   7th, 54 for Armchair Cyclist, Scrool07, The Art
TERPSTRA Niki   9th, 40 for 20 teams
MOSCON Gianni   12th, 27 for 9
ROOSEN Timo   13th, 24 for Nathanptz, Salvarani, The Art
CORT NIELSEN Magnus   14th, 22 for Fauniera, Rote Laterne, Salvarani, Squire, ThePirate81
DEGENKOLB John   15th, 20 for Shalgo
LAPORTE Christophe   18 for 2
VAN POPPEL Danny   16 for 3
DE BUYST Jasper   14 for 1
ROWE Luke   9 for 2
HAUSSLER Heinrich   8 for 6
THEUNS Edward   7 for 2
 and 21 five pointers


Looking at the above, you might expect Salvarani to be the big scorer of the day, but his team popularity ranking was 3rd lowest, as he had eschewed all those high scoring popular riders, and there he is mid-table.

Standings

This was the second highest scoring race so far in the game, after E3 Harelbeke, and although it didn't shake things up quite as much as that race did, it has had an impact.
Most notably, it had an impact at the top.  Russell jumps from 3rd to take the lead, with more of a margin than we have seen before.  The Collective Wisdom team has done very well since action has returned to Belgium, and would be in second place if it were ranked (Russell is top of the popularity rankings, so the CW team is closest to his in composition as well as in competition). Hakkie and Madrazo both jump onto the podium, Rote Laterne is jumper of the day and into the top ten, and Amis Velo sneaks back into that group too.
