Standings

Valverde has more than twice as many stage points as any other selected rider, so the lead of the only team to have him is almost inevitable, especially after three days out of 4 as top scorer.

Red points

No GC change in the top 30-odd places, and little in the mointains or points classifications (although van Poppel makes some progress in the latter), so the changes are basically those from the stage finish.

Standings

Sometimes a manager lets his heart dictate his pick.  Sometimes a manager decides to risk more than half his budget on one rider. Occasionally those coincide.  And very rarely, one or both of those tactics pays off. But even if it makes you top scorer on 3 days out of 4, it might leave you just short...

In an almost neutralised day in the game, Koronin's 2 place hop from 4th to 2nd is the biggest step forward of the day, and Josedin is the only other manager to move up in the top ten.

Sorry for the late update: stage 9, now underway, should let us know how realistic the standings at this stage are.
