Corendon put in a great performance yesterday and according to De Bondt, it was all about scoring as many points as possible. It's not going to be enough though.



The rolling scores have pretty much now caught up with the actual 2019 points and therefore it's a lot easier to see how things stand.

Since these points were calculated last night, they don't include any points from Taihu (stage or GC). Brandle and Raim picked up quite a few for ICA there and Vallee also grabbed a decent amount for Wanty. His points should be enough to see Wanty re-overtake Corendon.

Taking those points into account, Total should have a lead of ~180 over Wanty heading into the final two races. Both them and Wanty are racing Guangxi, but only Total (for the moment) are at Chrono des Nations. You could imagine Terpstra picking up some more points there.

Therefore to stand a chance of winning the competition, I think Wanty will need to podium Guangxi and maybe even have another top-ten in addition to that, to stand a chance of overhauling Total (and that's assuming the French team don't score many themselves).
