Stage 2 Hilly finish at Caminito del Rey

Green Points

VALVERDE BELMONTE Alejandro   70pts   1 team
KWIATKOWSKI Michal   58   0 team
DE PLUS Laurens   25   6 teams
KELDERMAN Wilco   15   3 teams
BENNETT George   10   8 teams
GALLOPIN Tony   7   0 team
BUCHMANN Emanuel   5   10 teams
URAN URAN Rigoberto   3   20 teams
QUINTANA ROJAS Nairo Alexander   2   17 teams
PINOT Thibaut   1   3 teams

2 very popular riders among the scorers, almost everyone off the mark.  A clear winner on the day, especially as no-one has picked Kwiatkowski, but most of the De Plus teams moderate the gap by combining with others.

(I usually only give the top ten for this: it is the minor classification)

Red points
Because riders can drop in the standings, their projected points can also fall, but not often as dramatically as Dennis does today.  I will only list riders who are selected in our teams here, and if there are a lot of large changes, like today, I won't list the minor ones.

VALVERDE BELMONTE Alejandro   401   1 team
DE PLUS Laurens   257   6 teams
KELDERMAN Wilco   209   3 teams
BUCHMANN Emanuel   141   10 teams
QUINTANA ROJAS Nairo Alexander   116   17 teams
FELLINE Fabio   103   4 teams
IZAGIRRE INSAUSTI Ion   88   1 team
MAS NICOLAU Enric   78   10 teams
BENNETT George   72   8 teams
PINOT Thibaut   70   3 teams
MATE MARDONES Luis Angel   70   1 team
YATES Simon   68   3 teams
ARU Fabio   55   20 teams
URAN URAN Rigoberto   54   20 teams
...
GEOGHEGAN HART Tao   -51   8 teams
TEUNS Dylan   -105   1 team
DE MARCHI Alessandro   -207   2 teams
CAMPENAERTS Victor   -255   1 team
DENNIS Rohan   -515   1 team

And if riders can get negative scores on the day, so can teams,  as two illustrate today, but most are moving in the right direction.

Standings

It is very early, but some of the damage (Hello, Porte teams) is probably already permanent.  Yesterdays positions were fairly irrelevant: 8 teams moved up by 10 or more, and new leader Los Brolin by more than anyone else (17 places)

Tomorrow, by contrast, is likely to be the type of day when there are few changes other than the green points manifesting themselves in the red table. 

Probably.
