Rest Day 1
A focus on the scores of the riders, rather than the teams.

Green points

We have not done particularly well in selecting those getting good stage placings or red jersey wearers so far, and the scores in this category are rather low.

1   VALVERDE BELMONTE Alejandro   165pts   1 team (Koronin, this one rider alone would put him top)
2   KING Benjamin   140   0 (would only have cost 77 points)
3   KWIATKOWSKI Michal   134   0
4   SAGAN Peter   107   0
5   VIVIANI Elia   95   0

6   DENNIS Rohan   88   1 (Yellow Knight)
7   BOUHANNI Nacer   85   2 (LightBing and Total Package)
8   MOLLEMA Bauke   80   0
9   MOLARD Rudy   79   0
10   GALLOPIN Tony   77   0

11   VAN POPPEL Danny   72   2 (NAS and Shalgo)
12   CLARKE Simon   70   0 (Other than Stalnov and King, only one who might have been a decent pick on %age return for green points alone so far)

13   NIZZOLO Giacomo   50   14 (including Total Package and Shalgo)
14   STALNOV Nikita   40   0 (Even cheaper than King)

15   DE MARCHI Alessandro   32   2 (Koronin and Gotland)
16   YATES Simon   28   3 (Amis Velo, Bicycle Boy and SemirS)

Red points

1   VALVERDE BELMONTE Alejandro   610pts   1 team (His green points, and those in minor categories, more than make up for the point differential between first and second)
2   YATES Simon   528   3
3   QUINTANA ROJAS Nairo Alexander   327   17
4   GALLOPIN Tony   294   0
5   KING Benjamin   279   0

6   BUCHMANN Emanuel   272   10
7   IZAGIRRE INSAUSTI Ion   268   1
8   KWIATKOWSKI Michal   239   0

9   LOPEZ MORENO Miguel Angel   210   3
10   URAN URAN Rigoberto   180   20
11   SAGAN Peter   162   0
12   MOLLEMA Bauke   160   0
13   MOLARD Rudy   157   0
14   KRUIJSWIJK Steven   151   0

15   BENNETT George   146   8
16   KELDERMAN Wilco   122   3
17   ARU Fabio   120   20
18   VIVIANI Elia   117   0

19   MAS NICOLAU Enric   115   10
20   DE LA CRUZ MELGAREJO David   104   15
21   DENNIS Rohan   103   1
22   BOUHANNI Nacer   100   2
22   MATE MARDONES Luis Angel   100   1

Who among these do the top teams have?
1   LosBrolin   1111 Quintana, Buchmann, Uran, Aru
2   Axl   1093 Quintana, Buchmann, Uran, Mas, de la Cruz
3   AmisVelo   1075 Yates, Quintana
4   Nathanptz   1035 Quintana, Buchmann, Uran
5   Hakkie2   1028 Quintana, Buchmann, Aru, Mas, de la Cruz
6   Rote_Laterne   999  Quintana, Buchmann, Uran, Bennett
7   BicycleBoy   922 Yates, Lopez, de la Cruz
8   Koronin   906 Valverde, Mas
9   Salvarani   897 Quintana, Uran, Aru, Mas
10   SemirS   891 Yates, Uran, de la Cruz

Expensive picks not in that list of 100 point plus riders include Pinot (3 teams), Martin (1), Trentin (1), Zakarin (3), and Porte (10).  SemirS and Laarsland manage 10th and 12th despite having lost budget on Porte: no-one else with these expensive failures make the top 20.

I am honour bound to be the second person to have a team ready, but why did the other teams who had selected Porte not do as Shalgo did, and swap him out when he was too ill to attend the pre-race formalities?
